2014 Holiday Gift Giving Guide

Stumped on the perfect Christmas gift for your best friend or sibling? As the holidays approach, it can be difficult to choose what to get people. Fortunately, we’ve got you covered.

At OHS, plenty of students are fans of something. When looking for a gift for your best friend, why not try something based on a show or movie you both like, like these Star Trek Vinyl Pop Figures ($10) or a Lord of the Rings-themed candle ($7)? You could even get them something useful for school, such as a Harry Potter weekly planner ($18). Plenty of options are available for interesting and unique pop-culture-based gifts.

If fandom really isn’t your style, why not try some fun accessories? This wearable planter is sure to look great ($25). Or, if they aren’t squeamish, your gift recipients could spice up an outfit with jewel beetle earrings ($15). Maybe you want to get your friend both accessories and something related to a show you both like? Look no further than fandom cosmetics ($9), which has beautiful nail polishes based on shows like Game of Thrones and Doctor Who. A unique and unforgettable accessory is always a great present.

With the winter comes the cold, making supplies for warm drinks a great gift for both friends and family. Why not get your friend a cute mug ($15) or two ($22.50)? Teas, such as Adagio’s Zodiac Tea collection ($9/3oz) are fantastic gifts as well, especially when paired with a fun strainer ($10). Warm drinks to combat the ice and snow are a great way to show your friends and family you care, and are sure to warm their hearts.

And of course, nothing is better for the holidays than some fun books. Why not give them a collector’s edition, like this great copy of The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy from Barnes and Noble ($22.50). Or, you could always go with a fun fiction book such as Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe or Seraphina. If you aren’t sure what book your recipient will like, there are other fun options, like book based temporary tattoos from Lithographs ($5) or a gardening planter made from an old book ($35). It’s impossible to go wrong with books, and the possibilities are endless.

Whatever you decide to get people as gifts, here at “!” we hope you have a fantastic holiday break.
