With the holidays come the holiday parties. That means stressing over the perfect gifts for your games of Secret Santa and Dirty Santa.
Not all gag gifts have to come with a silly quote and a receipt to Spencer’s Gifts. You can still camp it up while keeping it cute and cultured. These items will keep you in budget while telling all those friends of friends, “I have a sense of humor but I’m also the coolest person you’ll ever meet.”
Nothing says “I’m cultured” like a calendar paying tribute to the work of this master of homoerotic hypermasculine art. The Tom of Finland 2019 Wall Calendar is available for $20 at Tom of Finland Store.
Add some upscale kitsch to your daily routine with this pink tote. It’s perfect for buying granola at your favorite overpriced organic grocery store or for that in-a-hurry purse that still manages to say both “messy” and “cute.” The Opening Ceremony Shopping Bag is available for $15 at Opening Ceremony.
Hereditary gave us one of Toni Collette’s most important performances yet. This divine enamel pin immortalizes that moment as the chicest accessory for any horror queen. The Toni Scream Pin is available for $10 at A24.

Nothing starts a conversation quite like this coffee table read. And with your favorite Tumblr sites bidding farewell, you’ll need something else to keep your attention. The Little Book of Big Penis is available for $10 at Taschen.
