Yeah, the gift guide's gone to shit this year. Sad but true. I've been working late at the day job and even later on a freelance assignment. This, combined with the customary holiday madness and just a soupçon of errands/cleaning/laundry/assorted household chores, has led me to finally toss my hands in the air and give up the Ghost of Gift Guides Past. With any luck there will be a Ghost of Gift Guides Future, but I can't think that far ahead. At least, I console myself, I went out on a good note—I stand by Arrested Development as an awesome gift.
Anyway, should your particular shopping list (now your very last-minute shopping list) include one of those godforsaken Snuggie or Slanket things, it turns out there is a difference. (Who knew?) Good to know. Also pretty freaking funny. And this stunning piece of investigatory journalism definitively answers the question: why not just a backwards bathrobe?
