Problem: Christmas is 10 days away, and you still haven’t found the time or willpower to drag yourself out shopping. Now you have to brave the crowds of other late present-seekers, trudging miserably through the rain in search of gifts your relatives won’t sneer at. Forget it—just grab a few of the cool items pictured on the next 20 pages and call it good.
As much as we like saving our readers time, promoting cool local products and making money, the primary reason we produce this guide every year is for the opportunity to call up photographer Matt Wong and take a bunch of silly photos of staff and interns. Thanks are owed to Aaron, Ben, Hank, Jane, Michael, Nick, Whitney and Taylor for agreeing to wear pajamas at work.
Gotta go. Time’s a-wastin’—I haven’t done my shopping, either. See you out there.
