Death to Stock

Here’s a scary thought: We’re almost into 2020. Here’s another: Thanksgiving just ended, and Christmas is less than a month away. Oy vey. Not to freak you out too much, but it’s crunch time. If you haven’t started your holiday shopping yet, we’ve about reached that moment between thinking there’s a ways to go and spiraling into a panic for being too last minute. It’s a very fine line.

You may already have some ideas for what to get your partner (and if you don’t, smh), but other people can be hard to shop for. Like your hustler friends who are making big entrepreneurial moves on the daily. They run a business, they’re pragmatic, they have little to no downtime and they enjoy the nice things in life. 

It should be pretty easy, right? Wrong.

Guys who are constantly buried in work—the founders and careerists of this world—don’t want to receive a standard gift. Nor would you want to be offering one to them. To avoid this potential faux pas, we put together a dope holiday gift guide to check all of those entrepreneurs off your list, whether it’s your brother, colleague, cousin or heck, even your dad.
