Fancy Friends
By Jenny Bahn
If you’re still stumped on holiday gift ideas, consider the cheeseboard. No, not just any cheeseboard will do. Think artisanal. Think rough-hewn, work-of-art topped with Brie. When buying simple, seemingly run-of-the-mill gifts, you must make sure they are special, worthy of your fanciest friends. Check out these unique pieces made of olive wood, produced by Oliv Art and sold on eBay, or this one, made by Hawthorne and Wren. If you’re not one for wood, Dwell sells a great board made of slate, with the added bonus of being chalk-friendly so you can denote which cheese is which.

The Gift of Sound 
By Jenny Bahn
I’ll be the first to admit it: I don’t know anything about guitars. When I was in middle school, I tried to impress a boy by purchasing a black and white electric guitar of unknown make and model with the intention of learning how to play. Unfortunately, that didn’t really work out. My appreciation for guitars — and music — has never faded, however, and with the holidays coming up, I thought what better idea than to gift your musically inclined friend or family member a beautiful guitar. To help me help you, I’ve enlisted the services of Jean Noir, a singer-songwriter who actually knows what he’s talking about, to pick out three of his all-time faves available on eBay and riff about them. Here they are: 
1952 Fender Telecaster - Pretty much everyone wants one. Keith Richards plays one. Bruce Springsteen, too. Butterscotch with a black pick guard. It’s sexy. Tele’s are versatile.
Gibson 1960 Les Paul Standard - The 1959 is one of the most popular guitars ever and this one basically the same, but the 1960-make is what Paul McCartney and Jimmy Page played. Les Pauls have always been a little too beefy for my tastes but it’s a good guitar.
Any Silvertone guitar from the 1960s - This was a line of guitars manufactured by Sears. During this period they were exceptionally well-made and just cool. Later on, I think they lost quality which is why these ones are coveted by collectors. I was lucky to come into one by chance and it’s the best guitar I’ve ever known. And I don’t even like guitars.

Supreme Gifts
By Jauretsi
Supreme is known for their coveted skate-culture goods, from boards to caps. The brand has managed to remain relevant since its 1994 inception with recent campaigns featuring everyone from Kate Moss to Lady Gaga. If you missed out on some of their sold-out editions (which fly off the shelves), take a peek at eBay’s inventory for more “out-of-box” gifts such as their Supreme Domino Set or Supreme Harmonica. These are veritable collector items for any Supreme or skater fan. Trust us, you’ll earn cool points from this gift if bestowed upon the right subject.
