1. Hipster Santa Cyclist Holiday Card
Unless we're going to physically see one another on or around the holidays, exchanging gifts isn't necessary. But if you insist on spending money, hipster holiday cards are a nice inexpensive gesture. The particular card we found on Etsy features a young, thin Santa on a green fixed-gear bike. He's wearing matching sunglasses and a

quipped. Well little lady, you're going to love this necklace.
5. Pot Leaf Silly
We've met several folks -- some obvious, others not so much -- that
sell weed. But there's one sweet lady dealer who deserves special attention. She's reliable, fair, and dope blunts, literally. We're
buying her a pack of marijuana silly bands, and an industrial-size box of
