Gifting the Ungiftables

The holidays are a time of celebrating one another - but finding a thoughtful gift for everyone on your list can turn even the cheeriest merrymaker into the Grinch. We all have that person who seems impossible to shop for, whether it be your overly-friendly postman who’s waiting for his big break as a stand-up comedian and has a tendency to make off-color jokes on your front porch in front of company, or your brother’s annoying, airheaded girlfriend with the 5 snapping Pomeranians in matching sweaters and coordinated carrying satchels that she insists on bringing everywhere she goes.

And for those members of your shopping list, we offer you hope: you’re not alone. And you’re not out of ideas, you just haven’t found The Big Idea yet. But don’t worry, we can help.

Introducting: The Ungiftables!

The Ungiftables are a fearless group of gift recipients not for the faint of heart. But find them the right present and you go down as a gifting rock star.

Is your sister a vegan womens’ studies major on a macrobiotic diet who only wears organic clothing and refuses any mode of transport that involves gasoline? No problem.

Is Uncle Randy prone to wearing tinfoil hats, railing about 9-11 being an inside job and getting drunk off homemade wine that he knows hasn’t been tampered with by the Illuminati? Hey, we’ve got him covered.

So check out The Ungiftables to see whether your Ungiftable is represented. But if not, don’t fret: you’re sure to find something among the other 150 million+ products in the CafePress Marketplace. Another bonus: our presents won’t cost you an arm and a leg. (But if Cousin Sally the aspiring Beat Poet has a leg fetish with a particular penchant for skinny guys in black sock and shorts, we got her too.)

And if you’re hitting a road block and really can’t think of that perfect present for your son’s narcoleptic substitute teacher, let us help you by taking part in:


E-mail us a description of your Ungiftable, and we’ll get back to you with some ideas. Address is blog (at) cafpress (dot) com.

So shoot us a note - we’ll get right to work finding the perfect gift for your new neighbor who wasted no time in painting her house the brightest of tangerines, and bedecking her front yard by proudly setting up her extensive collection of garden gnomes around the huge, fanciful and slightly naughty water fountain of Michaelangelo’s David.
