Do It Yourself: Not Your Average Gift Wrapping

Gift Wrapping

There are two kinds of people in this world: those who look like they worked in the gift wrapping department at the local mall for 25 years and can flawlessly and effortlessly wrap any sized or shaped gift with expert detail, AND the “the more tape the better, just stuff that end in the and cut the other part off” people.

The Friday Funny: Christmas T-Shirts Edition

You know what I always loved? The ol’ Christmas t-shirt gift gag. There’s just something so perfect about giving someone a funny Christmas t-shirt and watching them open it as everyone sits around tree watching their every move. You get to watch the gamut of emotions cross their face: the excitement stage when they grab their gift from under the tree, the anticipation stage as they unwrap it, the “Cool! A t-shirt” stage as they pull it out of the box and the “Oh no, they’re going to make me put this on” disappointment stage when they realize what’s printed on front. That last one’s the best, no doubt. ;)

Beards, Beards Everywhere and Not a Razor in Sight!

Beards, Beards Everywhere and Not a Razor in Sight!

You know…. I didn’t like my beard at first, but it grew on me! :)

Beards have been around since the dawn of man. They have warmed the faces of everyone from cavemen and kings to presidents and athletes, and just about every other type of man in between. It wasn’t until recently, though, that the beard has taken on a kind of folkloric mysticism that has enchanted and delighted men, women and children from all walks of life.

Spreadshirt’s Partner, Beard Clique, has captured this bearded lighting in a bottle with their killer beard-related designs and products. Now let’s get something straight, here: beards aren’t just for “No Shave November”… oh no, no… beards are a trend, a lifestyle, a commitment, and let’s face it… beards are a calling. Man does not choose the beard; the beard chooses the man.

Head on over to Beard Clique’s shop today and have a gander at all their cool products. Any one of them would make a great gift for the lumberjack, hockey player, hunter or bearded man-loving female on your list. Get yours today!

And remember kids…. The man who would shave his beard for a woman deserves neither.
