Shopping is best when done the morning after a masked orgy.



The Milk Designer Holiday Gift Guide

Tis the season of joy, of giving, of… buying lots of stuff. Presents are so fun. And buying them can be fun too! It’s so nice to imagine the joy you’ll bring to various friends and family members, their bright and shiny faces as they open a lovingly selected gift. But shopping can be hard. Besides the obvious financial burden, it can be difficult to tell what people actually want. If my dad says he’ll “be happy with socks and a family day” just one more time, he’ll be met with some socks filled with batteries.

So, clearly in need of gift-buying guidance, we at Milk turned to some of our favorite, most fashionable people: clothing designers. For after all, wouldn’t they know shopping best? For this holiday gift guide, we asked some of our favorite designers what their dream present was. Read on for some real Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/Festivus inspiration.

My dream gift is definitely a drone! With a go-pro! I’ve been wanting one forever. Or a hoverboard. Or both.

Marty McFly-style.

All the movies that aren’t on iTunes or Amazon.

The perfect holiday gift is a handwritten letter, or a monogrammed “Make It Happen” book from Smythson of Bond Street.

Make stuff happen.
Make stuff happen.

For the city of New York to reopen the Brooklyn Banks this summer, and dinner with Maria X. Liu at Kurumazushi. Or a new Fucking Awesome deck from Supreme

He has such great hair.
