Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree, how lovely are the gifts under your branches. I love presents, guys. I love giving them, I love getting them, I love everything about them. And, I'm hoping you do too, because they're obviously the best. Right now, we're in the prime gift giving time of year.
Unfortunately, I'm still not quite done with my shopping, and those that are left on my list are the ones I have no idea what to get them, since I always want to get something unique or unexpected. But my new discovery, ThisIsWhyImBroke, helps with that problem!
CollegeCandy has a love-hate relationship with Girls. It's so well-written yet there are so many problems with the show, yet it's so addictive, yet some of the writers have said some pretty offensive things, yet we will watch every single episode.
It's the most wonderful time of the year! There is about a one-month period preceding Christmas where I'm blasting Mariah Carey's "Merry Christmas" album, watching an endless sequence of holiday-themed movies, and soaking up the cheesy atmosphere in the shopping malls. These are some of my favorite things about Christmas--what is your favorite part of the holidays?
Whether you know it or not it takes/took a village to raise your ungrateful tush. This is the one time of year you get to say thank you to the people you probably forget to thank: your favorite teacher, that employer who took the time, your big bro, that cool aunt and your bestie. Throw some love their way and you'll feel like you're actually doing something positive with your life.
Right now, I know you’re wondering: what the heck do I get RiRi for her birthday? What do you get for someone who has everything? Don’t worry CC readers, we’ve your back. We combed through all of Rihanna’s lyrics to figure out exactly what she wants. It was a tough job, but somebody had to do it.
Dear friends who thought I would stop ranting about Valentine's Day once I was in a relationship, I'm sorry you were mistaken. I know I'm not the only person that rants about V-Day (coupled or otherwise). My new favorite Tumblr account, Occupy Valentine's Day, proves it.
Valentine's Day - love it or loathe it, it's looming on the very-near horizon. Personally I'm not a fan, but perhaps that's just my inner bitter spinster self talking -- assuming someone took it upon themselves to shower me with gifts, I'd be perplexed, but I surely wouldn't question it. But let's not allow my sour-grapes attitude get us down! Whether you're in an exciting new fling or a tried and true relationship, we've got you covered...
Is it just me, or does it seem like Christmas came out of nowhere this year? I know there have been Christmas decorations in every store and Christmas commercials on TV since before Halloween, but it just seemed so far away.
HAPPY OFFICIAL FIRST DAY OF WINTER! It’s hard to remember when you're spending half of your day bundling up in the thickest, warmest, heaviest things you own just to walk outside to get the mail, but it's is the most wonderful time of the yearrrrrrrr! Yes, really.
No matter which holiday you celebrate, gift giving is a staple of the holiday season. But there is some major pressure when picking out a gift for that special someone. And in this not-so-fabulous economy, a lot of people don’t have the resources to buy the perfect gift anymore.
Do you have a large group of friends you want to buy gifts for this holiday season, but lack the cash to get a great gift for each of them? Secret Santa gift exchanges are a fun solution! Elfster makes planning a Secret Santa exchange so much easier! To use Elfster to plan your Secret Santa, get started by registering for the site.
'Tis better to give than receive, right? Well, technically speaking. Except when it comes time to figure out what the hell you're getting the man in your life this Christmas. And they say we're hard to shop for!? Psh, please. Give me a couple Twizzlers and a three-karat diamond and I'm just peachy. (Sarcasm?)
The holidays are almost here again, and if you haven't finished (or even started) your gift shopping yet, you're in luck: it's almost Black Friday. Black-Friday.net posts leaked ads and sale info for Black Friday ahead of time, giving you an edge over the other shoppers.
What is Valentine’s Day really about? Romance? No. Chocolate? No again. Flowers? Absolutely not. Traditionally, Valentine’s Day is about spending two weeks trying to find the perfect gift for your boyfriend or girlfriend and often failing miserably.
V-Day season is upon us again, and even though I’m in a relationship this year, I still feel like I want to punch people whenever I see little red hearts dotting store windows. I’m not a big proponent of the “show your love for someone by throwing money at him” school of thought. I am, however, all for gifts that are thoughtful, useful, and CHEAP. Hearing me out? Read on.
If you're one of those slackers who leaves your Christmas shopping until Christmas Eve (much to the scorn of retail workers everywhere) there’s no need to fret. Sex can be a great gift to anyone on your list this year. Yeah, that’s right, I said anyone. Now before you start calling me perverted, let me show you what I mean.
What in the hell do you give someone who constantly loves to..uh..give? Give the gifts that keep on giving! (And, no, I’m not talking about herpes. That is literally the opposite of a “Happy Holiday.”) Here are a few gifts that give:
The holiday season is many things, but eco-friendly is not one of them. (Did you know that we could power 600,000 houses for a year with the amount of electricity wasted on holiday lights?!) When you take into account all of the presents we buy, miles we travel, and food we stuff in our mouths, you can’t help but notice how quickly it all seems to add up.
If you're an online shopping junkie like me, you probably have tons of links stored in your favorites, saved to your desktop, or emailed to yourself of things you want to buy. Not the most organized shopping method; it gets so cluttered you're left without that great sequins blazer you wanted because you couldn't remember where you stored the link.
There are over 100 million sites on the Internet. 100 million! You might think you know about all the important ones (CollegeCandy, Gmail, Google, Zappos, CupcakesTakeTheCake...), but there are thousands of other sweet sites out there. And more showing up every day! We get it - it's not easy or fun sifting through the crap and porn to find those gems, so we're gonna bring the gems to you.
Whether you leave cookies out for Santa or just like the excuse to indulge in the sweets this time of year, it's time to stop making the slice-and-bake BS and get a little fancy.
...or Hanukkah...or Kwanzaa....or just because. Yes, it's holiday season, which means it's time to print out that list of wants you've been keeping all year and hand it over to mama so she can make all your dreams come true. We all know this time of year should be all about the giving, but we can admit that getting feels really freaking awesome, too.
I don't know about you, but this year I'm in serious money-saving mode. As much as I'd love to go buy my biffies matching pairs of Alexander McQueen's 10-inch Alien Heels, college girls don't have tons of moolah to buy the most fabulous gifts out there.
