2008 Holiday Gift Guide

It's that time of year again. The time when every blog and magazine and television talk show puts out a holiday gift guide of scented body lotions and fashion-forward cuff links.

The mistake they all make is that they attempt to create one-size-fits-all lists. They try to cater to the greatest common denominator by compiling a collection of innocuous bath products and mail-order cheeses and, of course, random crap. Have you ever received a guillotine cigar cutter or a friendship treasure ball? It was probably on a holiday gift guide somewhere.

The 2008 ShopVicariously Holiday Gift Guide will fly in the face of convention. It will not contain generic gifts for everyone on your list.

It will only contain gifts for me. 

If you plan on getting me a Christmas present this year, it had better be either (a) on this list or (b) as awesome as or more awesome than the things on this list.
