(Oy! Top -secret-stealth-Christmas-themed post here from Happy Ending rookie, Liz.)
Hi. I’m Liz, the new intern. I’m psyched to be blogging here, and to be serving as Amanda Stern’s body double for various things, such as setting her mic up at shows and trading clothes. Speaking of Amanda, I’m writing to you from behind the back of our favorite HE Founder/Lactose Intolerant Jew to bring you the 2010 Happy Ending Holiday gift guide! Because, if you’re like me, you haven’t purchased a single present. And if you’re like Amanda, then you’re so obsessed with your new guitar right now that your only gift ideas this season are…more guitars. Not to worry. I’ve found some killer stuff that will make you look like a genius. A thoughtful genius. Plus everything’s online and ready to ship. Happy endings are guaranteed.
Not the white whale, but this lovely chart from Evolution NYC is sure to charm the books right off the shelves of the Melville-head in your life. $98.
I died from cuteness when I found this gem. This baby’s good for babies (it’s the perfect size for itty bitty things), but also works for sullen teenagers, hip moms, hunting dads, whimsical grandparents, and everyone in between. Peruse the rest of the Future Perfect site for more inspiration. $58.
For all those writers in your life who won’t shut up about their novel… $25.
…and for the risk takers who keep re-breaking the same tibia. Everything you’ll need to keep them safe and sound. $89.
Tell your biking boyfriend or girlfriend you got this for them so you could hear them coming from a mile away. Ding! $25.
A charming little garment to garnish the hostess. $65.
Artisan butters with flavors like Bing Cherry and Roasted Garlic Tarragon, with label art inspired by former first ladies? How could you go wrong? Just don’t give one to Amanda. Remember, she’s lactose intolerant.
A little dark comedy to lighten up your favorite depressed person’s work space. $120.
Beautiful coffee tables books for the non-verbal. $31.50 & $31.79
A beautiful “soundbox” that plays endless ambient loops. This is not your mama’s white noise machine. But it could be. Good for mama’s, musicians, zen-like workers, and troublesome sleepers. $27.
