Fab gifts for your Fave 5

Different friends have different needs.
Quirky friends, require quirky gifts.
Here are some not-the-norm gift ideas for your fave five!

1. The runner---> "Toe" shoes

The runner is your buddy who runs for fun (!) and can clock a mile in 8minutes. We all know what toe socks are, but toe shoes? Okay, they're not called toe shoes, but they are the Vibram FiveFingers. These are more like plastic, foot gloves--all snuggly on your toes and feet. I've actually seen these on a runner in D.C. once. To me, they look funny (hahahaha). But hey, good reviews!

2. The online friend--> internet throw pillows-lawlz

These Throwboy pillows will make the perfect plushy gift for your internet friend. Maybe you met this person online...(ie. you guys eharmonized); or maybe you have that online chatterbox friend who loves using emoticons (ie. ^_^)  and those darn "lol's" and "brb's." Either way, these are slightly geeky, but really cute!

4. The drama queen---> reminder poster


Um, so you probably won't tell your friend that she's a drama queen (or king?) straight up, but you know it deep inside and so does she (or he). Get that friend this lovely poster (sidenote: it is a reproduction of a WWII propaganda poster and printed on recycled paper + soy ink) from ReForm School as a friendly reminder that it is always necessary to "Keep Calm and Carry On." Alright? Let's carry on...

3. The ninja---> confirmation shirt

So what if your friend isn't a real ninja- just get them this anyway via etsy . Wearing this will probably not turn them into a real ninja, but it will most likely boost their confidence. So, hi-ya!

5. The [girlie] gamer --> pinked Wii controller

This is the most girlie looking remote evaaa! Your girlie gamer loves her Wii and can deuce you in tennis, roll strikes in bowling and is probably more fit than you are because of her Wii fit. Just let her KO you in boxing, too, with her pink Wii remote + motion plus controller. 

5.1. The heartbreaker --> the easy pass

Let your heartbreaker friend let her boys/gals down easy with this print.

>>disclaimer: i am not saying my particular fave 5 are the types i listed. :)
