Living in a late-stage capitalist society, the big box stores keep insisting on pushing Black Friday up up up until we’re getting Black Friday deals a week before the actual day. This is very dumb! But! If people be shopping, we are left with no other choice than to deliver Ye Olde FYA Gift Guide to you early too, because we don’t want you to a) miss those deals and b) run out of money before we’ve posted it!

So here she is: the 2022 FYA Gift Guide for people who love books, booze (champagne specifically), unicorns, Dolly Parton and just generally being a cozy, reading bug-in-a-rug.
