Racked's Present of the Day: For An Acquaintance

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Tis the season to be shopping! Welcome to Racked's 2011 Gift Guide Advent Calendar, where everyday we'll be bringing you holiday gift ideas for the people in your life, from Mom and Dad to your best friend to your coworker. Click below to unveil today's present-of-the-day—and make sure to check out our full calendar of prezzies as we add more gifts throughout the month.

When getting a gift for someone you might not know that well, it’s hard to go wrong with a book that encompasses art, fashion, pop culture, and design at once.
