The Bear Den's Holiday Gift Guide 2009 (or TBDHGG09 for short)

Dearest Bear Cubs-

I know it's been awhile since I've posted, but I've been so incredibly busy with everything else in between.

But fear not, loyal readers, because I have prepared for you my third annual Holiday Gift Guide!*

For the "that guy" in your group.

For the "but what if I didn't lock the top-lock" in your life.

For Danny.

See above.

For Bryan.

For the "too much PDA couple" you go and play boardgames with every Wednesday night.

For the "I don't want anything for Christmas this year, really," person in your group.

For the person who thought the Jabbawockeez were cooler than they actually really are.

For the person who has everything.

For the person who prefers butter warm, but would never dare to warm it up in a microwave.

For the person you hope to see in heaven, but chances are they probably aren't going to make it. (Hint: I'm gonna need a few of these.)

And finally, for the person who loves their dog but not their dog's essence.

But if you've got some sense (and cents) in ya, it's probably you're best bet to check out some of these sales happening this weekend. And as always, you can thank me later.

And for the lovely last-minuters like myself, Obey.

And here are a couple links from some of my favorite places to shop online...

Happy Holidays!


*I'm not 100% sure I've done guides in the previous two years, but I needed a bit of credibility. Bear with me.

Two Saturday's ago, TOMS and UNDFTD hosted a party launching the Collaborative Canvas Collection featuring Brandon Boyd and Kristin Jai Klosterman- and believe me it didn't disappoint. With less than 80 pairs available, you could almost already expect the crowds, but I don't think anyone ever expected this...

The line was already 50+ deep when I got to Silverlake. We heard that there were a few who actually camped out- what are we releasing, Nike Dunks here?!

Hey guy in purple, your dad loves you.

The Peps, Brandon, and I- Argentina 2010?

Not sure how he left the shop in one piece.

Typhoid pills couldn't stop Kelli.

TOMS fam.

The best account executive in the business.

10pm, and there were still people in line. When I peeked my head out before the sun set, the line had made a pretty sweet looking U in the parking lot.

And wouldn't you know, guess who decided to show up? Sorry we couldn't save any beer for you, Ace- people were thirsty.

If his bike could talk..

Ace- "Dude there's a grasshopper on your car man."
Me- "What do you think it means?"
Ace- I don't know, hopefully something lucky."

THANKS THANKS THANKS to everyone involved, especially Sylvia @ TOMS and the kind folks at UNDFTD Silverlake. Nice seeing you too, Ace. I know it came late, but I promised you'd be up on The Slow Den. Great chat with you afterwards, we have to have more of those.
