Buying a Masterpiece Online

You’ve made your list. You’ve checked it twice. Three times, even. Yep, it’s on there: your cousin is asking for fine art. How to oblige: go to this site, which gives you first crack at limited-edition prints from artists like Terence Koh and David LaChapelle. Go ahead: get something for yourself.

Anise Candy Canes
CANDY LAND

Anise Candy Canes

With the clock ticking till the 25th, a little multitasking is in order. Here to help is this anise-flavored candy cane, a holiday-appropriate mashup courtesy of a family of third-generation chocolatiers in Maryland. Our only complaint: it’s not also a gingerbread cookie.

A Store Full of Antlers
OH, DEER

A Store Full of Antlers

Short of hunting down Blitzen, this is probably the easiest (and least bloody) way to get some antler horns on your wall. This site sells a whole bunch of design gear made from antlers—coat racks, bookshelves, that kind of thing. It also means Santa’s crew can drop by without fear.

Mug-Shot Shot Glasses
PUBLIC ENEMIES

Mug-Shot Shot Glasses

Capone. Dillinger. Pretty Boy Floyd. All had one thing in common: they were great at a party. Also, their mug shots adorn this set of shot glasses, along with images of three other Depression-era bad men. Feel free to smuggle any bootleg hooch in one.

Haggis Potato Chips
SCOT FREE

Haggis Potato Chips

Rules were made to be broken. In particular, the rule about not sprinkling simmered offal meats onto potato chips for a Scottish twist on your game-day snacks. The rule about double-dipping still stands.
