Holiday Gift Guide 2016
Finding gifts can be a drag - that's why the team at LSTN has rounded up our favorite finds of the year into one convenient location for you. Find the perfect gift for everyone on your list, and maybe even something for yourself (I'm looking at you, pizza oven).
Bourbon is delicious, and Pappy van Winkle makes some of the best around - that's a fact. However, some people frown upon drinking bourbon in the morning. So, here's the next best thing - real maple syrup, aged in casks used to make Pappy. It'll put some hair on your waffles.
If the whisky enthusiast in your life isn't a waffle fan, we recommend cutting them out of your life. That's probably not an option, though, so maybe just get this customized whisky barrel for them, and slowly introduce them to waffles.
No it isn't real wood - that would* make your water taste a bit too earthy. Still, this non-leaching and non-toxic bottle keeps hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold, and is certain to impress (knock on wood)*.
*All wood-related puns are unintentional.
This, however, is made from real wood, and has a real big sound for something only 3" tall. Whether you're going on a worldwide adventure or just down to a friend's house, make sure you bring the jams with the Satellite.
Pizza. Everybody loves it. If you give someone this, they are legally obligated* to make you pizza whenever you ask. It truly is the gift that gives (pizza) back. Also, it looks cool. What I'm saying is, buy me this pizza oven.
*Not legally binding
Perfect for the audiophile in your life, a membership to Vinyl Me, Please ensures that you're giving the gift that keeps giving good music, month after month. It also ensures that you have a friend who can host listening parties. Win-win.
The active music lover in your life will love you for getting them these earbuds. Over 10 hours of battery life, a sweat-resistant finish and custom drivers mean you can't find a better set of earbuds.
If you've given someone the Bolts, you'll want to make sure they're covered from head to toe. Do that with these Nike Free Flyknits - lightweight and breathable, they're great for working out or working your way to the couch.
In honor of office guard dog Taco Bear, this cookbook will make you into a taco master. A provocative taco master (which is the best kind). Written by master taco chef Alex Stupak, owner of NYC's Empellón Taqueria, this book will change the way you think about tacos forever. Or it won't. Maybe somewhere in between. Anyways, it's a great cookbook.
It's nearly 2017, and it's time we started acting like it. Virtual reality is first, then self-driving cars, and then probably teleporters (just guessing here). Get someone started the right way with this VR headset. Bonus: you get to make fun of them while they use it! (See photo above).
If you have any friends who love to spend hours on Ancestry.com, or who get very nervous watching the Maury Povich show, this is the perfect gift. Find out everything you ever wanted to know (and maybe stuff you didn't) about your genetic history, or surprise someone with the test kit on a romantic date! (Don't do this.)
