Tis the season for holiday cheer, lots of parties, plus a profusion of gift guides – like what to buy the man, lady, child, dog, whatever in your life. Well, I have all my loved ones taken care of already and due to the end of year sample sale glut (and Henry’s latest penchant for TravelZoo spa deal gifts), I really can’t think of anything else for my holiday wish list.
But then I had a moment of inspiration. I mean, I love TV and I enjoy looking at pretty things online, so why not dream up imaginary gift lists for my favorite TV characters. It’s fun and at the end of the day, it won’t cost me any more than my cable bill. So here goes with the inaugural Hypothetical Holiday Gift Guide post dedicated to my second favorite Glee member (first goes to you, Mike “No Longer Just Other Asian” Chang): Noah “Puck” Puckerman. Please note that these are, of course, Chanukah gifts.
1: Alexander Wang cotton hooded sweatshirt from Blue & Cream, $148. After his Ryan Reynolds Buried-esque night trapped in the port-o-potty, Puck really should just burn that entire outfit, which must totally reek. I’m still trying to forget the imagery of him just wearing that putrid sweatshirt to class. Surely Principal Figgins could have given him a special pass to go home and change. This two-toned zip up version is a suitable, if not much fancier replacement.
2: Aloe Vera Biodegradable Liquid Body Cleanser, Kiehl’s, $17. While we’re on the subject of freshening up post-port-o-potty entrapment, the dude seriously needs to take a shower. The light aloe vera scent should make him smell nice and fresh and hopefully mask any lingering odors. Plus it’s moisturizing and made from biodegradable ingredients.
3: Bruce Springsteen The Promise: The Darkness on the Edge of Town Story on Amazon, $89.99. We know that he’s a Sammy Davis, Jr. and Neil Diamond fan, but we didn’t realize that Puck is also a bit of a Springsteen aficionado. Or maybe he just thought the Boss reference would appeal to his Panther cohorts. In either case, this 3CD/3DVD deluxe edition box set will surely be an inspirational rally call if he’d like to try again.
