Our Big, Gay Holiday Gift Guide!

14 12 2017

Time to get serious about the holidays. If you procrastinated through Black Friday and Cyber Monday, we’re here to help. Forget the gloves, sweaters and fruit-of-the-month, here are 10 great gay gifts for your great gay friends and family.

FOR YOUR HUBBY WITH THE SWEET TOOTH

For your partner with the sweet tooth, order gourmet marshmallows from 240 Sweet, a lesbian-owned business outside of Indianapolis. With flavors like Bourbon Cinnamon and Rhone Rangers Syrah, he’ll know you’re not vanilla. If you’re local, check out their marshmallow classes.

FOR THAT FRIEND WHO NEEDS A VASE SHAPED LIKE A WEINER

One of our favorite gay couples in New Orleans, Matt and Beau, turned us onto Pansy Ass Ceramics, a hilarious and artisanal queer ceramics movement. Gay-owned, gay-made, and too cute to be true, these original trinkets for your house make for an adorably queer present.

FOR THOSE NEW GAY MOMMIES AND DADDIES

Of all the LGBTQ-friendly children’s books that came out this year, none captured our hearts and the cultural zeitgeist quite like I Am Jazz, an uplifting queer-positive story about America’s favorite trans tween. The runner-up prize goes to Santa’s Husband, where Santa is black and married to a white man. It practically sells itself.

FOR THE EC0-FRIENDLY LESBIAN

Out of Philly, the gay-owned Analog Watch Co. hand-carves these eco-friendly wooden watches and we’re in love. The watches are timeless, classic, and handsome. And for every purchase made they plant a tree!

FOR THE GAYS THAT JUST BOUGHT THEIR FIRST HOME

Lesbian-owned Bijou candles out of New York create unique, women-inspired candles. Alaina and Jocelyn’s first collection of candles is named after actresses from the Old Hollywood era. A perfect way to get your friends hooked on a luxury candle habit.

FOR THAT SINGLE GAY FRIEND

What else? The Perfect C*Ring. Perfect Fit has developed the first c*ring sizing system designed to fit you (or him) without too much pull but with enough restriction to be truly effective. Why are you looking at us like that?

FOR THE GAY MILLENNIAL

We were going to say dishes, because the millennial in your life is probably still using his mom’s reject plates. But let’s be real, what they really want is super expensive Bose headphones. And this pair of Soundlink wireless headphonesare pretty damn cool.

FOR THE SEXY GAY COOK IN YOUR LIFE

If your beau likes to get down in the kitchen, head over to the website of gay-owned Bushwick Kitchen where you can buy all kinds of organic and artisanal honeys, syrups, spices, totes, towels and kitchenware. They even have pre-arranged gift sets for $50 all ready for you!  These boys are based out of Brooklyn if you’re in the area.

FOR THE HORNY BACHELOR

Eco schmeko, bring on the dick pics, amiright? Ron Amato’s collection of nude photography, The Box Book, is a naughty coffee table book for that gay daddy in your life who wears robes and a has a houseboy and an impressive collection of body oils. You know the type…
