Christmas is near and the question that always haunts us during this time of year resurfaces once again: ‘What do I get her/him?’ Well, we do not know the answer for that, but here’s a list of what not to give. Take notes, people.
Every year, as Christmas sweeps us by, it also leaves in its wake, conifer trees dumped in the streets as unseasonal trash. So what UK-based artist D*Face did for his Eyebaubles project was to paste googly eyes on some of them. They certainly look as down in the dumps as much as they are in the dumps.
Someone in Brighton clearly isn’t happy. Unfortunately for the powers that be in this bohemian seaside town on England’s southern coast, that person is in charge of putting up the Christmas lights. What he does with them is brilliant.
If you’re looking for some festive decorations this holiday season, here are some PANTONE Christmas ornaments to deck your halls with. With 10 different hues, these ornaments are a perfect addition to any design nerd’s Christmas tree.
I’ve never had much will power when it comes to waiting until Christmas Day to open presents. Unlike me, art photographer Hugh Turvey won’t get caught unwrapping and rewrapping gifts early. He has used an X-ray machine to uncover the mystery.
With Christmas just around the corner, never fear; it’s not too late to buy the perfect gift. Look no further than the Limited Edition Viva La Juicy Parfum from Juicy Couture. The fresh fragrance is a delightful mix of mandarin orange, wild berries, honeysuckle, gardenia and creamy amber notes. [Win a bottle here!]
If you were thinking that Sufjan Steven’s couldn’t evolve and expand his musical styling’s any more, you were wrong. Grabbing our attention with his beautifully simple folk chord progressions and lusciously mellow vocals before turning into an arrangement junkie with an electronic vibe, Stevens has just dropped a rap mixtape. Rap. Rap!!!
Just in time for Christmas, Juicy Couture have released a super sleek limited edition of their Viva la Juicy parfum. The Limited Edition bottle has a platinum finish, and is distressed to vintage perfection with a three-step proprietary metallisation process, all packaged in a luxurious textured carton. With a mix of mandarin orange, wild berries, honeysuckle, gardenia and creamy amber notes, Viva la Juicy is the perfect combination of fun and flirty.
HOW TO WIN: We’ve got a bottle to give away to our favourite Australia-based entrant who tell us below this post:What scent reminds you the most of Christmas?
Some of us are allergic to Christmas cheers. Alan Sailor has the perfect thing for these people: the fantastic sight of seeing Christmas ornaments get shot to smithereens by a pellet rifle. He doesn’t use any extra-spiffy equipment too, just a micro-second guided spark flash. For our part, we don’t hate Christmas, we just love explosions and colours.
It’s not the first time we’ve admired Calligraphuck’s letterpress cards. But these rude Christmas cards that celebrate swearing, elegant calligraphic typography and blurt out all sorts of glorious well wishes from ‘Happy Yuletide, Bitches‘ to ‘Glad Tidings Motherfucker’ — they’re really quite something, aren’t they?
Ahhh, it’s that time of year again…and the ugly Christmas sweaters are getting more hideous than ever before. Festive memories are a guarantee in one of these sweaters, and all eyes will be on you at any holiday party. My favorite by far has to be the one with the intentionally-placed snowman heads…
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s list of Hanukkah Wants was leaked and mygivee.com has created his wishlist for his close friends. Impressive to see the broad spectrum of desires of a reclusive entrepreneur. Mark asked for ‘Livestock restraints and slaughtering knife’. He wants a Gulfstream Jet and private island. He wants to jazz up his look with pull-overs, makeover his desk with a calendar, and drink some plonk.
Couture, extravagant, bucolic. Les buches de Noel are all dressed up for the holidays. They were made by French chefs, master bakers, confectioners of large, fine chocolate and gourmet French stores such as Fauchon, Dalloyau, Lenotre, Patrick Roger and many more. To celebrate Christmas and New Year, an exhibit of twenty Yule logs are currently on display at the castle of Breteuil in France.
