10 Gift Ideas for the Broke Person

Gift season approaches, and I’ve been struggling on how best to spend what little money I have on all the people in my life who I want to give holiday presents to. I’m sure I’m not the only one with this problem… so I thought I’d share some ideas.

1. Mix CDs - make your friends/family a mix CD with handmade cover artwork. If you can’t afford a stack of CDs, make a virtual CD and share the mp3s with them over Dropbox.

2. Homemade Cookies - Spending $7 on baking ingredients allows you to make a large batch of simple cookies. Divide them and use as gifts for multiple people. Throw on a handmade card and WHAM you got yourself a spiffy gift.

3. Cooking supplies - I’m not talking top of the line Kitchen Aid shit. Go to your local dollar store and buy things like wooden spoons, platters, funny mugs for under $5. Everyone needs at least some cooking supplies!

4. Cacti - Don’t go to a nursery, go to a grocery or department store with a plant section. Cacti are some of the cheapest and easiest to maintain plants, they only really need to be watered once or twice a week. And they look awesome. If the person you had in mind likes to cook, you might want to consider buying them some sort of herb like rosemary or thyme.

5. Bulk food - This might not work for everybody, but I’m sure your broke roommate wouldn’t object to a bulk package of ramen or mac and cheese. They sell 12 packs of ramen at my local dollar store for $1 each. ONE DOLLAR FOR TWELVE MEALS.

6. Unused Books - I’m betting that there’s a book in your apartment/dorm room that’s in perfect condition, but for whatever reason that you will never use again. Wrap it in some gift wrap and scrape off the price tag.

7. Spa Day - For those of you in relationships (or who feel safe touching your close friends/family in that way) make mock “spa coupons”. Offer services such as manicures/pedicures, hair stylings, massages, etc.

8. Use your talents - Are you an artist or musician of any sort? Make a piece of artwork or write a song. Buy a large piece of poster paper at Home Depot for $5 and make a funny collage full of inside jokes that only your friends will understand. Are you a knitter? Make mittens for people.

9. Weird clothing - Go to your local Salvation Army or Goodwill and spend a couple hours combing the shelves for weird items. Funny t-shirts, strange hats, etc. Don’t go to department stores looking for clothing, it’ll be too expensive.

10. “Fancy” Meal - Spend $20 and invite several friends/family members over for a fancy dinner. You don’t need to be a chef or to spend lots of money to make something “fancy”, just make the atmosphere “fancy”. Make pasta with some sort of red sauce and possibly meat. Insist that everyone dresses up, light candles, play jazz standards, take pictures- make a real night of it. 

ALSO! If you can’t afford gift wrap use newspaper.

Hi. I’m taking commissions for pet portraits again this year. $120 for a 10in by 10in black and white drawing, shipping included. I’ll also email you a high res scan of the drawing. I have a limited number of space for portraits in time for the holiday season. Email me at everydaypants@gmail.com with 2-3 photos, let me know if you’d like a name banner and any specific flowers, and if you’d like a portrait in time for the holidays or have no deadline. Thanks!

A Feminist Reading List for the Holidays 

Books by strong, spirited, whip-smart, flawed, fantastic, human, devastatingly talented women for anyone - female, male, or otherwise - on your list.

In honor of May I give you...Adam and Belle May Day headcanons!

(May Day was definitely a thing in England in the eighteenth century and I’m just gonna act like it was in France too cuz artistic license, baby.)

- Adam wakes up with the birds and immediately rolls over to wake up Belle so they can watch the sun come up before they head to Villeneuve.

- Belle is less than enthused about how early it is–there’s a part of her that’s been spoiled by not having to wake up at the crack of dawn anymore.

- Adam gets her up by reciting Herrick’s “Corinna’s Going a-Maying”: “Get up, get up, for shame,” etc, and by tickling her, which earns him both giggles and swats. He makes up for it by pressing kisses all over her face and she finally agrees to get up.

- They curl up in a window seat and watch the sunrise. Every so often Adam buries his face in Belle’s hair and kisses the back of her head.

- They put on simple clothes, have a hearty breakfast, and are in Villeneuve by mid morning.

- May Day is actually one of Belle’s favorite holidays–at least the idea of it. She loves the country dances, she loves spring, but she always felt out of place at the celebrations because everyone thought she was so strange. A huge part of May Day, for young people at least, is also pairing off with sweethearts, and that was never something she was interested in. “It’s a small village. I’ve met them all.”

- But this year, she’s got Adam, who can’t wait to spend the day demonstrating to literally everyone how ridiculously in love he is with his wife.

- The dancing is in the town square. Adam and Belle dance every branle, much to Maurice’s delight (that man loves a good country dance, city fellow that he is). The music is vigorous and the dances exhausting, but Belle and Adam are having the time of their lives.

- So are Plumette and Lumière, for that matter. They’ve snuck away to visit the village on May Day every year since Plumette was fifteen and Lumière was eighteen, excepting the years of the enchantment. Mrs. Potts always knew, of course (that woman knows EVERYTHING), but let them go. She remembers what it was like to be young and in love. They don’t have to sneak away this year, though. Instead they come with Belle and Adam and have a perfect day in the sun.

- Adam buys Belle a flower crown at the May Day market, which she loves but insists she will only wear if he gets one too, so he does. They walk around for the rest of the day grinning at each other like mad.

- And later, when they’ve returned to the familiar gardens of the castle, they make love outside, the air thick with the smell of roses and lilacs. With her flushed face and her flower crown askew, Belle looks like the goddess of spring herself.

It’s Christmas and you can hear Mariah Carey softly singing “All I want for Christmas is you” 

Dan: imagine a horror movie where she “follows” you

late MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE! 

And Happy Holidays! ♥

So…it’s about that time again…where we all make Tumblr valentines and hiss at anyone that suggests that valentine’s day is something good.

I’m sure many of you, like myself, don’t care too much for the holiday. So here’s my idea!

If you don’t have a valentine….why not be mine?!

So, I’m extending this to everyone! If you don’t have a Valentine, you do now! …if you’ll have me that is.

I have enough friendly hugs and love for everyone so don’t worry!

katsudeku for the ship meme ;)

ayeee was hoping someone would ask for that ship ty madi ;)

  • Who would throw the other in the pool: Kacchan definitely (Deku might if he got riled up enough tho lol)
  • Who is the better carer when the other is sick: I think both–but Deku would be more gentle. Kacchan would be able to cook up some delish soup too cause I HC Deku sucks ass cooking
  • Who would force the other to do extreme sports with them: Kacchan lmao he’s def the type to wanna do all those extreme sports and Deku would need some convincing 
  • Who would cook the better romantic dinner: Kacchan I think is the better chef but I doubt he’d get the ambiance right haha
  • Who would build the blanket fort in the living room: DEKU omg I love thinking abt them building pillow forts
  • Who would have the best holiday ideas: Deku–I picture him as the one to plan things out meticulously while Kacchan is more spontaneous 
  • Who would need to clean out the other’s stuff to make room for their own: Hmmmmmmm maybe a lil of both? Kacchan might tell Deku to tone down his All Might merch, I feel like that’s all that Deku owns in his room lol

Got pinched (hard enough to leave a mark the next day) yesterday because I wasn't wearing green. I work at McHell, our uniforms are black or red! Then got told "Well those employees are wearing green" Yeah, cus the manager shirts are green, pink, or blue. Stupid holiday "traditions" 😑

I never understood this shit. I refuse to even acknowledge the holiday because of it. Mainly because if it is based on an Irish holiday then it’s been bastardized by Americans(I’m American so don’t get butt hurt). Whenever we get a hold of something it’s racist as hell, offensive in one way or another, or just not the whole story. This pinching shit just seems like a great excuse for creepy old fucks to pinch a poor young girl’s ass for some perceived failure. Whatever the real traditions around this holiday I have no idea because everything I’ve grown to know is idiotic as fuck. I highly doubt pinching is even a real thing. If I’m wrong, please educate me. As far as I know based on growing up here is that St Patrick’s Day is about wearing green, pinching, alcohol, and potatoes. Which I would stake my life on being completely wrong. -Abby
