Twenty-one days. That’s about enough time for James Franco to escape from that rock five times, and plenty of time for you to buy a brass nut necklace, some steak knives and a sailboat for everyone on your holiday shopping list.
There are steak knives, and there are steak knives made from stag antlers. These beauties from Abbeyhorn (they’ve been around since 1749) are meant for cutting big game: think elk steaks. So give them to someone who likes elk steaks, and who already has forks.
A wine-of-the-month club: sure, nobody would turn that down. But it’s not exactly groundbreaking either.
