littleBits kits are a great way to learn about electronics while building your own gadgets, musical instruments, or smart home accessories, and Amazon is offering all-time low prices on several starter packs, today only.
Let’s imagine you work at a company. It’s a pretty good company, good enough that it decides, after much talk, to move to a bigger, fancier office. This office is much-heralded by those who have created it. And yet, it is still an office. It still has flaws, like any living, breathing thing.
Alex Ovechkin turned 30 yesterday. While that fact jolts you into realizing your own age, let’s check out what gifts the Capitals captain received:
Moms are essential. Without them, we’d all be just masses of genetic material floating around. They’ve put up with plenty of your crap (in multiple senses), and this Sunday—which is Mother’s Day, in case you were not aware—is as good an opportunity as any to show the various mothers in your life how much you love…
So you want to buy your girlfriend some lingerie, but you don't want to be the creepy guy checking out thongs at Victoria's Secret. Buying lingerie might seem intimidating, but it doesn't have to be. Plus, the payoff of seeing your lady in that little number you bought will be well worth it. Here's how to do it right.
Dr. Dre is 50 today. Fifty! He is truly getting up there. But what to get the rapper-slash-Apple VP-slash-mogul who has everything? How best to prove that you didn’t, ahem, forget about Dre? I have some ideas.
Today is Cam’ron’s birthday. He’s 39, so it’s possible he’s feeling like those years are adding up. But it’s okay, Killa Cam: You’re only as young as you feel. But honestly, what do you get the guy who has everything in pink and then some? I have some suggestions.
Lots of thoughtful people gave their father a drone this Christmas, because they had already gotten him a Kindle last year and an iPad the year before that and you sort of stall out on gift ideas from there. But! Drones can be difficult, and dads can be clumsy*, and the result has been nationwide terror.
It's Christmas!!!!! But who cares, because it's RUINED.
One of the best things you can give to a friend who has invited you into his or her home for the holidays is something good to drink. But telling you to buy a bottle of booze would make for a pretty boring, if practical, Gift Guide. (If you do buy a bottle of booze, be a love and wrap it nicely?)
Each college football bowl has a specific gift package for the players participating, and it's safe to say the Missouri Tigers were happy with the Cotton Bowl's presents. The video starts out with some nice team apparel—you have to serve the appetizers first—but when the Apple products come out, holy shit.
A couple days ago, we gave you book recommendations from the Deadspin commentariat. But we've also excerpted from a good number of books this year, too. Here's a list of those in case you're still in the market for gift ideas.
Last week, we asked you to recommend some books for people who do the whole gift-giving thing. Here's what you came up with.
Another edition of the Deadspin Gift Guide Roundup here, this time updating you on the best gift ideas for people who actually play sports. Here's what passed our strenuous vetting process:
Music. There's so much you can do with it—listen to it, make it, read about it, hate it—which is to say that it's fertile grounds for gift ideas. Leave some suggestions for presents for the music lover below in the discussion section.
Previously, we asked you for gift ideas of cool, sports-related art. You didn't disappoint. Here's some of what you came up with:
Remember those halcyon days of yesteryear, before middle school team cuts codified who could and couldn't play, when everyone regularly played sports solely for the love? For some, those days never ended. Others need to be reminded that sport without an audience is worthwhile, too. For them, we would like your gift…
