The Skirt: What To Buy Her For The Holidays

"The Skirt" is an ongoing series in which Four Pins' resident lady friend, Rachel Seville, becomes the most important woman in your life.

Once again, it’s that wonderful time of the year when you buy your girlfriend some weird bracelet she only sort of likes and you both pretend she really likes it. Buying gifts can be stressful, man. Whoever said it’s better to give than to receive was probably a magazine editor and he had an assistant who was great at buying gifts.

I could have looked at the hottest gurl trends and made a “Hot List Gift Guide!!” but if there’s one thing I hate, it’s things that are hot that aren’t pockets. So instead, I took a journey through the entire history of Western culture to curate a list of the very best gifts that any woman from any era would be thrilled to receive.

Rachel Seville is a writer living in New York who believes in miracles. Read her blog, Pizza Rulez, here and follow her on Twitter here.

      Let’s face facts, Benc: Every guide to women’s gifts ever written, satirical or not, sucks. Women are picky as hell and will always hate the stuff we give them. So pick up your 7-shooter and play Russian Roulette with the choices above.
