Stuff Made By People Like Us For Other People Like Us
To Buy For People Like Them.

We're pretty much impossible to buy gifts for and as a result we tend to get books we won't read, records we don't dig and movies we already saw.

Maybe you know someone like us. Maybe you are someone like us. Either way, this collection of limited-edition gifts created by our friends and co-conspirators might be just the ticket for the designery/arty/geeky person on your list.

Holiday Note: For every order placed for a Gifted item between now and Christmas we'll donate five dollars to Greater Chicago Food Depository and for every 100 orders placed we'll donate an additional $500.

The 2007 Gifted List

See the complete Gifted Collection with full descriptions and photos on one way-too-long scrolling page. Orders will be shipped same-day whenever possible.
