Give Free or Die

It’s Okay. Your Gift Guide Is Here Now.

You’re a selfless person. We know that. You know that. The loved ones who are about to unwrap these certifiably astounding mini treasures know that. Great. Now that we all know that...

Blooming Sound Amplifier
FOR THE GOOD LISTENER

Blooming Sound Amplifier

Flowers are a nice gesture. Then again, flowers die. Better just go with this flower-shaped iPhone amp from the High Museum gift shop instead. It’s the kind of thing that’d look great in a minimalist loft. A regular house, even. Maybe on a desk. Hammock? We’re done now.

$28, available at High Shop, 1280 Peachtree St NE, 404-733-4814

Pickles, Pigs & Whiskey Cookbook
FOR THE ROGUE CHEF

Pickles, Pigs & Whiskey Cookbook

Turns out, it’s okay to give a gift that’ll also ultimately benefit you. So if a cookbook from Billy Reid with 130 recipes from a James Beard Award–winning Mississippi chef happened to find its way under an aspiring cook’s tree... well, that’s just strategic generosity.

$40, available at Billy Reid, 1170 Howell Mill Rd, 404-994-3144

Moscow Mule Gift Set
FOR THE SOCIAL QUAFFER

Moscow Mule Gift Set

The perfect gift. You’ve searched high. You’ve searched low. You’ve search—oh, hey, here it is: a pre-gift-wrapped Moscow Mule set including a bottle of spicy ginger shrub, two copper mugs and a recipe. Extra points for remembering to wrap some vodka.

Gunmetal Bib Necklace
FOR THE AGGRESSIVELY BEAUTIFUL

Gunmetal Bib Necklace

There’s a time and a place for dainty diamond trinkets. Here and now: not it. So direct your lovely muse’s gaze to this oxidized gunmetal necklace from Ann Mashburn. It’s basically sexy chain mail. It’s that or a sexy shark suit.

$470, available at Ann Mashburn, 1198 Howell Mill Rd, 404-350-7132

The Charleston Road Racer
FOR THE DISCERNING WANDERLUST-ER

The Charleston Road Racer

Chances are, you know someone who can ride a bike. So when you wheel out this Brothers Rich road racer with a vintage frame, Portuguese tree cork grips and a big red bow on it for them, they’re probably going to like it. If not, more bike for you.
