    6. Crew-style knit socks that'll make you want to IMMEDIATELY curl up with a cup of cocoa and a good book.

    16. A hand lettering 101 book featuring detailed instructions for nine lettering styles that'll teach you all the basics you need for some flawless penmanship. *Slowly chants*, bring back snail mail.

    17. Rainbow stainless steel straws — they're not only environmentally-friendly, but simply darling. What more could you want in $7 product?!?

    19. A sloth mug to fill with looooots of coffee on the mornings when your body feels extra ~slow~.

    20. Wrapping paper featuring *your* beautiful face, because let's be honest here, you're the real gift.

    22. A Luke's Diner shirt you must wear every time you feel like you need coffee in an IV — it's the law.

    30. A neck pillow in the shape of a FREAKIN' SHRIMP. Why use a plain neck pillow when you could be sleeping on a shrimp one?!? This isn't up for debate, this pillow rocks.

    31. A cute letter board to leave yourself funny messages, welcome your guests, or (if you're a responsible adult) remind yourself of important dates.
