If you’re anything like me, you love to get people goofy gifts that make people laugh and smile. I’m not as arts and craftsy as Zoë and the rest of Team Whipped Bakeshop, so unlike them, I can’t make hand-made gifts that are any… good. That means I usually just go ahead and buy stuff for gifts. There’s not much shame in it!
My pick for the best place to order quirky gifts this year is Blue Q. Based in Pittsfield, MA, they design and manufacture all of their products with humor, quality and charity in mind. They are kind enough to hire folks with disabilities, and 1% of the sales from their awesome recycled bags goes to the Nature Conservancy. As a writer, I really appreciate their product descriptions. They are possibly funnier than I am. Jerks.
So, if you know anyone who needs some funky socks, Canadian breath spray or just a badass tote bag, now you know where to look.
