No matter how early you start on your holiday shopping (nerd), there are always a few stragglers left at the end that just totally stump you.
Maybe you forgot about that white elephant party at your work next weekend (or, your spouse did and you have to pick up the slack 🙄).
Maybe you have a lazy teenager in your life who doesn’t care about anything but texting and video games.
Maybe you accidentally get your mother-in-law the same thing every year—look! a framed picture of meeee!—and you really need to mix it up.
Don’t worry! We’re here to help with three totally original, giggle-inducing gift ideas even the toughest people on your list will love.
For the college student whose ability to sleep the day away defies nature, the mother-in-law who’s always gifting you cookware and ugly holiday décor, the twenty-something moving into their first apartment, the friend who’s recovering from surgery and has nothing to do but binge Law & Order: SVU. (Best nap show ever.)
Or (let’s be real) for yourself, because naps are the best, and so are cozy blankets in which to take them. :)
What makes this blanket great is that a) it’s a lot bigger than most throws, so you can actually stay warm during your nap, b) its cotton/polyester blend means it’s soft and warm but not too hot, and c) it has kind of a retro / ugly / homemade look, which makes it different from the boring Bed Bath & Beyond throws everyone else has.

For the lady who’s fed up with diet culture (see what we did there?), and/or wishes to poke fun at the classic housewife-in-an-apron trope, and/or doesn’t give a flying fig pudding about trying to make “smart choices” during the holidays…
May we suggest this salad-scorning apron, complete with ironic daisies? Best worn while baking cookies, frying chicken, or whipping up a giant bowl of spiked eggnog.

P.S. This also reminds us of one of the first, best Tumbler feeds ever, Women Laughing Alone with Salad. Enjoy.
Surprise that special someone with a romantic night in—pizza, board games, and this plushy slice. Sure, you’ll have to figure out exactly what to do with it once the initial reaction wears off—but it’s so funny, it’s worth it.
IT’s also the PERFECT white elephant gift—it’s totally pointless, irreverently goofy, and juuust inappropriate enough for a work party. (It’s also only $14.95, so you could pair it with a gift card for actual pizza.)
Don’t let those last-minute stragglers get you down.
Just think about it this way—they deserve a little good-natured fun, for being so hard to get presents for in the first place.

Let’s get right into it. There are a lot of… unforeseen side effects of a global health crisis.
Like, when you’re the CFO of a medium-sized startup company, but then you have to work from home, and also teach 2nd grade. Or when the catering manager of a large grocery store chain suddenly becomes a first responder, because grocery stores are CRAZY TOWN right now.
There’s a lot going on right now, and much of it is pretty grim. As usual, Seymour Butz is here to provide a bit of levity in an otherwise serious time.
