It’s the most wonderful time of the year — unless, of course, you don’t have a clue what to get for anyone on your list. That’s where we step in, and this year — possibly more than ever before — we really have cause to celebrate. More than half of the states in the country now have legalized same-sex marriage. There was a time, not so long ago, when it didn’t look like this type of progress was possible. So while you’re looking back on the year in which we zoomed ahead in the fight for equality, let us offer up some cool gift ideas that can help you to spread the love this holiday season.
JBL Clip Bluetooth Speaker — Perfect for commuters, the person on the go, hikers, backpackers, or just about anybody who loves music. This clip-on speaker makes music accessible no matter where you are, has up to five hours of battery life, and weighs less than most sets of keys. Convenient, cute and compact.
Bottle of Absolut Warhol Limited Edition — Like Vodka? Always had a thing for Andy Warhol? You'll love the new Absolut Warhol Limited Edition bottle, available just in time for the holidays. Now you can enjoy a mixed drink and be an art connoisseur at the same time. Why not give the gift of liquor, and a little bit of culture, at the same time?
Looking: Season 1 — Buy this gift for someone you don’t plan on seeing until a week or so after the holidays (or just be prepared to tell them their gift is on its way). Available January 5, Looking is the well-reviewed new series from HBO that tells the stories of a group of gay men living in San Francisco. Catch up on the first season’s eight episodes before Season 2 premieres on January 11.
Go Pro Hero — It’s one of Oprah’s favorite things for 2014, so you know it's gotta be good. The Go Pro Hero is so fun because you can literally capture all of life’s memorable moments — even those in water, sand, snow and dirt — without taking your eyes off the action. Capture incredible action shots and more with this tiny, durable camera.
Make a Charitable Contribution — We’ve come a long way in the fight for equality, but we still have some work to do. Whether you’re advocating for an end to bullying in schools (GLSEN), continuing the marriage battle (HRC), suicide prevention (The Trevor Project) or one of the many, worthy LGBT charities at the local level, a donation in someone else’s name is really one of the most compassionate gifts you can give.
