You can browse through all of our hand-crafted packages here. But for those of you overwhelmed by all the options (or for lazy readers who trust my impeccable taste in gifts), here are a few recommendations:

Immortalize Yourself in a Book. So you have a book inside you—or on your desktop, rather—clawing to get out. Here's your chance: Third Place Books staff will consult with you then help you self-publish your oeuvre on their Espresso Book Machine, a fantastic contraption that'll print and bind 25 copies of your work as paperback books.

Made-to-Order Revenge Rap. Totally trumps the revenge haikus I've been hobby writing for years.

Political Planning Session at Cooper's Alehouse. Five city council members are up for re-election next year. If you're plotting to dethrone Bruce Harrell, Sally Clark, Tim Burgess, Tom Rassmussen, or the reanimated corpse of Jean Godden, you need to first grab a drink with Sandeep Kaushik, Thomas Goldstein, and freshly-elected Representative Joe Fitzgibbon (D-34). Kaushik is a seasoned political consultant; Goldstein owns the youth vote; Fitzgibbon is a winner. Together, they can tell you who's the weakest link on city council and how to take them down.

Support The Stranger

If you're too good for political upheaval, revenge, or reading, consider donating a little cash to our featured charities via our Strangercrombie PayPal account. Every dollar goes to two hard-working local organizations.
