Fishing for Ideas
By Jenny Bahn
Dads can be the hardest to shop for. I feel they fall into two categories: the sweater-wearing, cufflink-using variety or the rugged outdoorsman. My dad falls into the latter group; you’ll never see him wearing a cashmere cardigan or stocking his library with the latest Philip Roth tome. No, he’d prefer some hunting gear or a new pair of Sorrels. This year, I’m looking into updating his fishing arsenal — maybe a rod and reel, some flashy new lures, or a cool new bag. eBay really is a one-stop shop for everything. Happy holiday hunting!

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.

eBay Ninja Tricks: Nasty Gal’s Sophia Amoruso
By Jauretsi
The New York Times recently had an informative article on online shopping. In the endless game of “searches”, the newspaper recommends typing in synonyms when searching out a product. For example, type in “coat” instead of “jacket”. “On sites like eBay, try leaving out words” writes NYT, “if you are looking for an Yves Saint Laurent handbag on eBay, search for ‘Saint Laurent’ or ‘Laurent bag’.”
Sophia Amoruso of the e-commerce site Nasty Gal adds to the tip: “If you search for ‘Yves Saint Laurent,’ you’ll be fighting over pieces with a bigger group of people,” she says while suggesting to purposefully… [MORE] misspell brand names as well. “Think of what an uninformed person might list a really great designer piece as, and you can get an amazing gem for an incredible price.” 
Last but not least tip for your aggressive Fashion odyssey, you should know that eBay Fashion also lets shoppers search by taking a cellphone picture of a fabric to find similar designs. To read the rest of the piece, visit New York Times' Online Shopping Tips for the Holidays.
