Inked’s Second Chance Gift Guide
Christmas has come and gone and we’re sure that some of our more naughty readers woke up to stockings filled with coal. Never fear, you have a second chance to go out there and get the cool swag that Santa failed to deliver. Here’s a collection of presents you can give to yourself that are far cooler than whatever homemade atrocity your crazy aunt gave you.
EMBRACE THE DARK SIDE
Hasbro wants to help you relive your childhood with their new line of Star Wars Black Series 6-Inch Action Figures ($19.95, hasbrotoyshop.com). The collection features incredibly detailed depictions of many of your favorite characters from the Star Wars universe.
RUBBER BAND RAMBO
You’ll be sure to dominate any office prank war with this rubber band machine gun ($85, kickstarter.com) that holds nearly 700 rubber bands and fires an insane 14 shots per second. Arming yourself with this bad boy is like bring a hydrogen bomb to a knife fight.
The Wipebook ($25, wipebook.com) takes the convenience of a white board and makes it a lot easier to lug around. Specially laminated pages allow you to easily write and erase countless doodles and notes in a handy and portable notebook.
Whoever said that art can’t be comfortable? This fantastic skull armchair ($TBD, harow.fr) will impress people with both its artistry and functionality.
HIGH BROW BOOZING
As a man who was fond of a drink or two Ernest Hemmingway would be quite jealous of the ingenious Flask Book Box ($50, uncommongoods.com). Artist Talia Halliday takes beloved hardcover novels and turns them into a sneaky way to conceal a flask of delicious booze.
Visitors will do a double take when they take a close look at one of these spooky prints. The prints are photos of elegant sculptures with a horrific twist created by artist Jessica Harrison ($80, jessicaharrison.co.uk).
Just because you don’t have a turntable anymore doesn’t mean that you can’t have records in the house, you just need to find other uses for them. Artist Jeff Davis turns records into decorative bowls that rock. ($25, uncommongoods.com)
IGGY POP ART
Even the most desolate hovel can be brightened up with one of RedApe’s amazing prints ($TBD, by-redape.com). RedApe imagines what some of pop culture’s more iconic figures would look like with a healthy amount of tattoo work in these pieces.
