Everyone’s doing a gift guide, so why not join in? Here, lots of ideas for the awesome babe in your life….

+For cat lovers only.

+An educational skirt.

+I already own two of Debbie Carlos’ insane halftone-printed posters, but this one — of jellyfish! — is my new favorite.

+You need a calendar for the new year. Both of these are so beautiful.

+A thick stack of records from Phonopolis. A nice end of year list from 2012 to inspire your purchases, here. (Some of my favorite albums this year were hip-hop: I’d go with a themed collection including Kendrick Lamar, Death Grips, Killer Mike, and Frank Ocean.)

+Stocking stuffers to make you thirsty.

+Super beautiful and graphic tableware.

+Less practical, but pure awesome, and so cuddly.

+A spendy item, but these are stunning shades.

+Advance tickets to see Heart play the Bell Centre in March. Because you think ahead.
