Do you think Daenerys Targaryen of “Game of Thrones” is a Goddess on earth? Do you think The Dude is our savior? (God help us all.) Do you kneel in awe of front of Miley Cyrus? Or maybe pray for her to stop singing? Then grab your Dupont Solid Gold Lighter and get ready to light up a Celebrity Religious Candle($12.00). Adorned with the faces of your favorite icons, from Steve Buscemi to Dave Grohl to Christopher Walken, Katniss Everdeen and more, these awesome, hand-made candles are just like the ones you typically see in church—or your local Catholic’s home altar—and they usually feature the faces of saints, Jesus Christ, the Virgin Mary, or you know, other holy people. But these are way more fun. Laser-printed on a semi gloss adhesive paper and custom made to order, these badboys make the perfect gift for the superfan or TMZ junkie in your life. Oh, and as for that commandment about not honoring false idols? Yeah, we’re going to have to shelf that one for a while.
You know you have to groom your face. You know you have to groom your hair. But did you also know that you have to groom your facial hair? True story. There’s no bigger turnoff than a dirty, grungy, food-filled beard (despite the indisputable fact that leftovers are delicious), so keep your scruff in tip-top shape with Madame’s Beard Tonic($18.00).
The Madame’s special blend of natural oils like vitamin e, jojoba, argan, castor and sweet almond oil work to hydrate, soften, smooth and strengthen, for healthy facial hair that smells uber-manly. How manly? Pretty manly, thanks to flavors like Aged Bourbon: Kentucky Single Barrel, Laudanum: Tobacco + Black Tea, Sentinel: Leather, Dust Shaker: Mahogany + Sandalwood and more. All it takes is a few drops from these magical amber glass jars to attain the beard of your lady’s dreams. Just apply some to your palms, massage into your beard and consider yourself groomed.
Knife skills of your caliber are undoubtedly a asset in life or death situations, however, when hosting a dinner date with an interested female, they can also be rather intimidating. Perhaps you should lighten the mood with this fanciful Pac-Man Cutting Board($165). Constructed from strips of walnut, hard maple and cherry woods, their grain runs parallel, and as your knife doesn’t cut the wood fibers, but merely pushes them aside with every stroke, it works to keep your knife sharper for longer. Treated with a mixture of mineral oil and beeswax, this cutting board is both beautifully crafted and incredibly awesome. Happy slicing and dicing!
