Christmas Gifts: Part I

Finger-gloves

 

“The Bless Finger Gloves are a conceptual take on a classic pair of winter gloves. Individual sleeves for each finger keep your digits toasty”

Are these Finger Gloves cute or what? Imagine the fun of your partner waiting around as you carefully put on ten little woolen condoms, then starting all over again because you mistook the thumb for the pinky finger!  The silver thingies will snag your silk evening dress or fishnet stockings….perfection.  Just $390.

By the same brand, Bless, here is an eye-catching hair brush:

 “It’s both unnerving and funny at once, leaving one with mixed feelings of curiosity and intrigue. “

(They forgot rage and horror.) I am guessing that this is a ‘conceptual take’ as well. The word ‘conceptual’ is probably something to think about when shopping for Christmas gifts. An empty box would be a conceptual take on a classic present, and plus it would be free, as opposed to this hair-brush, which is $350.

I actually love Creatures of Comfort, the shop where I found these items, and they have a wide variety of fashion-forward clothes, leaning toward the minimalist mental patient look. I even have a pair of boots I bought there, sitting quietly in their box, wondering if they will ever see the light of day.

    I think the brush is a steal!

    I offer the conceptual “kitchen sink full of dirty dishes” this holiday season. It’s a reflection of quotidian malaise and a quirky, kitschy comment on American culture.
    $1,288 plus shipping.

    Dj – I know, it really is.

    Marky – Does this include your good self, standing at the sink with tears in your eyes?

    How about a conceptual pile of used tickets to various movies and shows from the past 3 years? Just found them in one of my handbags. Packaged in a recycled gift box tied with organic hemp string, only $399 plus shipping. Ideal to make your own conceptual collage or some such. Anyone?

    As usual I am ahead of the ‘zeitgeist’. A few months ago I urged my lady readers to buy their men fur-lined jock straps to protect them when, in contradiction to the sillies forecasting global warming, the big global freeze hits and threatens, er, ‘the family jewels’. The severity of this forthcoming freeze, brought about by the sun finding a cure for its acne, will almost certainly make prolonged intercourse a very hazardous activity for gentlemen, so your woolly condoms could come in useful, Sis. Of course, the increased chances of frostbite will also offer the perfect excuse for us chaps for finishing the, er, business even quicker than usual!

    DD- Using the word zeitgeist means you’re not ahead of it! fur lined jock straps are a good idea though – double for boiled egg warmers / CONCEPTUAL clutchbag for the lady who has matured beyond mental patient to rehabilitated

  7. Sister Wolf Says:

    ali – I thought DD’s use of zeitgeist was kind of refreshing! It’s been so long since I last heard it…maybe it’s time for a comeback! At least he didn’t use “paradigm.”

  8. David Duff Says:

    Now look here, you two, if want to use fancy foreign words in order to provide my comments with an entirely spurious air of sophistication then I don’t want you two picking my nits, as it were! In the meantime; buddy, can you spare a paradigm?

    “yes, but is it ART?” Patsy, AbFab

  10. eek Says:

    I did think “Dickwarmers” upon first look at the glove things.
    Then of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Eldridge Cleaver.

    I thought this was the worst that materialism had to offer-other than Goop’s annual list-until I came across Sea of Shoe’s $90,560 ‘Love Gold’ gift guide for Barney’s. With descriptions like, “This is a must have for any well dressed girls jewelry box,” (not girl’s-girls), and, “I love the directional force of the spear,” it seems that the $390 Finger Gloves would come in handy so one does not scratch out his or her eyeballs!
