Top Ten Christmas Cards - 2016

It's that time of the year again: time to round up our fave cards to send to your friends, coworkers, parents, cat, WHOEVER! It was a tough choice as usual, but somehow we managed to choose AND even let you know who to send them to. Here we go!

1. For your friend who drove to Seattle to see Queen Bey:


And constantly slays the day.

2. For your friend who was deeply disturbed by that clown thing that happened this year:

Seriously, WTF was that??

3. For your friend who's slightly religious:

Maybe they go to church on Christmas Day but they don't, like, pray before bed or anything.

4. For your friend who dressed up as Drake for Halloween:

And who fondly remembers his Degrassi days.

5. For your friend who made some questionable choices this year:

And has been very, very naughty. 

6. For your friend who would rather watch a slasher movie on Christmas:

I mean, if a stranger breaking into your home via the chimney and eating your cookies isn't scary, I don't know what is.

7. For your friend who already has tickets to the new Star Wars movie:

We always have all you Star Wars fans covered here.

8. For your coworker who collects dinosaur figurines at their desk:

And appreciates a good dinosaur pun.

9. What your cat will probably get you:

Don't expect much more than that.

10. For Grandma and Grandpa who live out of town and are always asking you to write more:

And who might need a more, ahem, traditional card.

There's much more where that came from! Hurry by before all the good ones are gone.

We Gonna Rock Down to Electric Avenue

Shit is hitting the electric fan with all of the drama between Thomas Edison and Nicola Tesla! There's nothing like a juicy Victorian scandal about electricity to get us amped (heh heh). Mr. Tesla may not have gotten the recognition he deserved for his improvements to electricity back then, but it's never too late to be appreciated! If you have no idea what we're talking about, be sure to check out this very scientific analysis of the whole situation here. Geek out and show your allegiance to Mr. Tesla with one of many new items with his namesake in the shop now!

1. Tesla's Experimints 

You don't want your breath to be stinky while you're in the lab. 
| $3.50 |

2. Electric Blue Tesla Socks

If only we these socks were actually electric heat warming socks (they're not). That's the only way they'd be more awesome.
 | $10.00 |

3. Tesla Finger Puppet Magnet

Whose friends don't want to hear all the reasons Tesla is better than Edison via a finger puppet?
| $8.99 |

4. The War of Currents

Are you team Alternating Current or Team Direct Current?
| $24.50 |

5. "And you can thank me for Christmas lights, too."

Alright, he didn't actually say the quote about Christmas lights. He would probably be pleased to hear that he's the face of a Christmas ornament, though. And looking mighty dapper, might we add.
| $9.99 |


We'll just leave you with the greatest photo of Nicola Tesla in existence, aka him turning up the heat with this beach babe. No need to thank us!

2. 1950s Vibes - Lucille Ball & Bettie Page

Are you a Charlotte or Samantha? Too bad these lovely ladies never got to star in a TV show together; it would've been highly entertaining.

3. The Dark Side - Luke Skywalker & Darth Vader

The force of the dishwasher is strong with this one. Maybe you won't even need to pre-rinse those dishes...

4. Superhero Face Off - Batman & Superman

If nice guys really do always finish last, I guess this means your dishes will never be clean.

If all you really need to do is get the message across, this lil' guy will do the trick.

All dishwasher magnets $8.99; practice good hygiene and pick one up today!

Top 10 Father's Day Cards

Dads. How would we ever feel guilty for not checking our oil enough without them? Thanks to dads, we have Dad Bods, Dad Jokes, and, most importantly, DILFs of Disneyland. Let's help celebrate the invention of dads with some fantastically awesome Father's Day cards that will help show that you care without getting too mushy. Father's Day is June 19th; hurry over and find a card before the good ones are gone!

1. For the dad who's taught you a thing or two:

You'll probably still call him to borrow his drill/power saw/entire tool kit since you can't be bothered to get your own.

2. For the dad who didn't quite get the job done:

You were too busy rolling your eyes and thinking about how you know your dad will always help you with this stuff, so why would you need to remember?

3. For the dad who's sensitive to the room temperature:

You probably only adjust the thermostat for the mind games/entertainment. 

4. For the dad who's put up with A LOT:

Now that you're a grown up you know what a disaster you were as a teen. You're sick of you dad saying, "Just you wait until you have a teenager of your own," mainly because you're terrified. 

5. For the dad who lives and breathes Bernie:

There's nothing more dad-like than bringing up politics at the dinner table every night, or muttering about moving to Canada if Trump wins. Bonus: pick up all kinds of Bernie gear for dad in the shop, too!

 6. For the dad with a potty mouth:

He was secretly thrilled when you became old enough for him to drop the f-bomb like it was his job. Four is old enough, right? 

7. For literally the best dad in the world:

It seems like it'd be pretty tough to beat Barack Obama in the dad category, but we'll trust you on this one.

8. For the dad who made you appreciate the simple things:

Your dad taught you to appreciate having food on the table and a roof over your head. Are you reading this, Dad? 

9. For the dad who makes you feel like a rebel:

He gives your mom a mini-heart attack daily.

10. For the dad who you just really appreciate:

He'll enjoy the catchy nature of this card. 

There's many more where that came from! Browse our cards, soak up the A/C, and show Dad that you care.
