GIFT IDEA #145
Rarr! These fierce, tough little bottle openers are awesome bar accessories and could not possibly be any cuter. Unlike the people they serve, they remain upright all night long, no matter how many bottle caps they tear off and spit out. They come in three bright colors with slightly different designs.

DERBY ROCK SOCKS
You don't have to derby to rock these socks, but it couldn't hurt. They look great and feel great, and may inspire feelings of extreme fierceness in their wearers. Try them out while cheering on (or trying out for) the Rat City Rollergirls to fit in with the rest of the pack. The woven-in silver-on-black design makes legs look like rocket ships.

AROMATIC PEPPERBERRY CANDLE-RING WREATH
It looks pretty, it smells pretty, and it's ready to come home with you or your favorite person. Grown fresh in California, the salal, cedar spiral eucalyptus, pepperberries, cinnamon sticks, and pinecones can make the grumpiest cynic feel festive, at least on the inside. It's perfectly happy up on the wall or a door-candles are strictly optional!

BIG DOG BISCUITS & GRAVY DOG TREATS * $7.99
Biscuits and gravy aren't just for hangovers anymore-now the dogs in your life can enjoy the solace of a sloppy, all-natural brunch anytime. They may be a bit tougher than the ones you'll get at Hattie's Hat, but dog teeth need more to work with, so it's all good. These are sized for larger dogs, but littler pups can get set up over on the next shelf.

THE SERIAL KILLER TRIVIA GAME
If you feel like murdering your family around the holidays, you are not alone, but ringing in 2011 from the slammer can be soooooo depressing. The solution? Focus the fun on mutilations and decapitations beforehand, so you won't be tempted to whip out a pickax after Christmas dinner and bury it in grandma's skull when she asks you for the eleven-hundredth time "when are you going to settle down and start having children of your own?"
