A joyously macabre gift guide to help you shop for your GOTHEST friend
Some people can be more difficult to shop for during the holidays than others, especially when someone’s style is radically different than your own! But it doesn’t mean that even your gothiest friends don’t deserve a lovely and thoughtful present! It’s totally possible to find that perfect, unique lil’ something that will make their little black soul feel a warm tingle. It doesn’t matter if your pal is more of a baby goth, a witchy goth, or a ’90s throwback grunge goth, there are options for us all! What matters most is that, as with all gifts, every present is an extension of the love and care you have for your friend. Our little goth hearts enjoy eggnog and cookies just as much as everyone else does, and we deserve thoughtful presents that tell us you know who we are and what we like!
We’ve put together a list of gifts that will make your sweet goth friend crack a smile on Christmas morn, even if they don’t want to!

Everyone deserves to get a special little something for the holidays that is indicative of who they are as a person, no matter what they’re into!
