If You Can't Give Them A Dundie, These Are the 14 Best Gifts For 'The Office' Superfan In Your Life

"Presents are the best way to show someone how much you care. It is like this tangible thing that you can point to and say 'Hey man, I love you, this many dollars worth.'" – Michael Scott

Let's face it, "The Office" is one of the best shows to ever hit television. With it's subtle and in-your-face humor, there's at least one joke in every episode that really gets you. Here are 14 gifts that anyone who loves "The Office" will die over.

1. A T-Shirt

Amazon

You could get your friend or loved one a standard Dunder Mifflin shirt, but I suggest getting one that's just a little more subtle to the show. Obviously, a Schrute Farms t-shirt is a no-brainer that it comes from "The Office," but to someone who has never watched the show, they'll assume it's an actual farm. Jokes on them. It's a great shirt.

2. "World's Best Boss" Mug

Amazon

Once again, you could get the person a gift that says Dunder Mifflin on it, but this mug is a staple to the show. They can channel their inner Michael Scott and be as crazy as they want to be, because, well, they get to be the "World's Best Boss."

3. A Pillow

Amazon

This is one of those things that nobody would ever ask for, but if they got it, there's no doubt they would love it. It's a humorous Dwight/Jim staple that is as comfortable as it is great.

4. A Dwight Bobblehead

Amazon

I mean, c'mon. How could you not get an "Office" fan their own Dwight bobblehead? It's super unconventional and will just collect dust, but if someone loves the show then this gift is a shoe in.

5. Clue: "The Office" Edition

Amazon

This one is a little less on the nose but just as good. Board games are already great gifts because once you're done opening presents, you can break it out and have fun. Any fan of the show will without a doubt geek over this gift.

6. A Dundie Award

Amazon

A Dundie Award is definitely a little pricier than some of the other options I included, but it will for sure get a laugh and a huge hug from your friend. They'll love it as much as Michael loves his.

7. "The Office" Sign

Amazon

This is a great stocking stuffer or actual present for a friend. Get this sign and a mug, and you're giving a great gift set. It can be stuck on a fridge, on a bedroom door, or even at an office. Who knows? The opportunities are endless.

8. "That's What She Said" Poster

Amazon

If you've watched "The Office" you'll get it, and most importantly, so will the fan you're giving this too. There's also a Dwight one that's really great too.

9. A Classic "The Office" Print

Amazon

This is for every art and "The Office" lover. You'll be a shoe-in for being their favorite gift this year with this out-of-the-box present.

10. "The Office" Complete Series

Amazon

Not the most creative present, but if the lover of "The Office" in your life doesn't have their own DVD copy of the show, it definitely should be considered. Yes, I know, it's all on Netflix, but we also thought "Lost" would be on the streaming site forever too and...

11. "Dwight You Ignorant Slut" Mug

Amazon

Listen, I had to include it in some way. I couldn't leave "Dwight you ignorant slut" out of a gift guide. It's either a mug, a poster, shirt or pillow, so you decide.

12. Dwights K. Schrie Desk Sign

Amazon

If you have a friend who actively uses their desk, or if they work in an actual office with a desk, this could be a really great funny, and usable, gift.

13. Pam's "The Office" Painting

Amazon

You didn't think I would forget about this masterpiece, did you? Now you can't forget to give it as a gift either.

14. "The Office" Sticker Set

Amazon

I don't know who in the world would need this many stickers or where someone would put them all, but somehow, it's still a must. I also really loved these ones, so you can choose which are better for your friend or family member.

10 Abnormally Normal Things About College

Some stuff just doesn't fly in the real world.

College is a weird, weird place. For whatever reason, the young adults who are supposed to be cultivating their minds with all of the worldly knowledge available to them, seem to get away with quite a bit using the justification "it's college." Even the best students live abnormally while on the alien planet that is a university. So, while to us college students it may just seem like another day, here are ten things that are only normal in college.

1. Straight up theft.

In the future, if I walk into my forty-something-year-old neighbor's home and see a collection of stolen signs, stuff from the local restaurant, and property from the construction site down the road, I would definitely be concerned about the character of my neighbor. However, in college, people proudly display campus signs, traffic cones, or dining hall napkin dispensers that they have impressively commandeered - it's a cheap decoration and a great conversation starter.

2. All-nighters.

Maybe with the exception of parents of little babies, very few people willingly stay up for close to 24 hours on end. In the real world, if a friend came to you and said that they literally did not sleep the previous night, it's completely logical to be worried. On the other hand, when a friend in college says that he was up all night you laugh a little, give him an understanding pat on the back, and walk with him to the coffee line.

3. Atrocious eating habits.

Sometimes you don't have time to eat. Sometimes you order pizza at 2 in the morning. Sometimes you eat three dinners. Sometimes you diet. All I can say, is thank goodness that our metabolisms are decently high at this age.

4. Breaking and entering.

In high school, you hopefully knew everyone who entered your home. After college, hopefully, that's still the case. However, when you live in the middle of thousands of bored college students, people knock at your door, walk into parties, cut through your yard, and stop by without invitation or hesitation. It keeps life fun, but still not normal.

5. Calling mom when stuff goes down.

I really doubt a time will ever come that I don't need to call my mom for guidance on how to do something. But, hopefully the frequency of those calls with go down a little bit post-graduation. Maybe after four years of doing it on my own, I'll know how to fill out government forms, cook real dinners, and get stains out. But for now, I'm going to keep calling while I still can without seeming totally pathetic.

6. Being intoxicated at weird times.

Drunk at noon on a Friday is the quintessence of an alcoholic at any time - unless it's college. Not that this is necessarily a good thing, and it certainly doesn't apply to everyone, but there aren't many other places where people would instantly assume someone is intoxicated if they're acting even a little weird. I've even seen people drink in the library....

7. The messed up dating scene.



There are people who meet the love of their life at college and live happily ever after. They are people who meet the supposed love of their life at college and never talk to them again after Sunday. There are people who use Tinder. Hormones are high, freedom is bountiful, and football players are cute - what else needs to be said?

8. A warped sense of time.

The career I'm pursuing will require me to be at work by 7 am, five days a week. I am fully aware of this. Now, will I enroll in an 8 am next semester? Absolutely not - I'm not a demon. In college, nights often start at 10 p.m., dinners are eaten at 4, and mornings can begin anywhere from 8 to 2. We don't get that whole 9-5 idea.

9. Costumes... for no apparent reason.

High schoolers have a dress code. Adults have dignity. College students have fun. Here, people will wear a corn costume to get on ESPN, a fanny pack to get into a fraternity, or a tutu to match a theme party. Is it actually a weird thing, though? No one even blinks an eye.

10. Insanely close friends.

Name another point in your life when you live with your friends, study with your friends, drive with your friends, eat with your friends, go out with your friends, and even grocery shop with your friends. I'll wait. At college, it's easy for friends to seem like family because you're with them constantly. Love it or hate it, it's weird about college.

So, enjoy this weirdness while you can - it won't last forever!

Christmas Of Remembrance Series: My Last Letter

Christmas time is not about the gifts... It is about something far, far more special.

Dear Reader,

Thank you for your time.

This is a series that I have dedicated to those I have loved and lost. It was merely a thought, then an idea, and now a realized creation. Christmas time… all winter really is a hard time for me. It holds this duality in my life of being both my favorite and also my least favorite and difficult time of year. It has been that way for years now.

In a way, this series aids my closure and healing further, and it allows me to tell my story in a way that, to me, is less scary (one of the many great facets of this platform). It was never my intention to write this in order to reach people, or encourage people, or serve as an inspiration to anyone. This was for me and only me. No one else. But, if these pieces of writing do impact someone, somewhere, or make them feel encouraged or inspired in some way or another, or just simply make them feel, then I hope you have enjoyed them. If I can make someone feel, then I guess I have done my job.

The life of an artist is often an uncertain one. The life of a human is a trying one. But life is a journey, and all journeys have their trials. Their tests. Their triumphs and rewards. And they all have their losses. What matters most is what you make of all of it. What lessons you learn. What changes you make. What life you create for yourself. What art you create because of it all. It can be very, very hard. But it can all be glorious at the same time.

At the heart of this series, my words, there is this deep and valuable belief of mine: Christmas (or the Winter Holiday that you may celebrate) is so much more about presents and cooking and shopping and all that other bullshit… it is about family.

The family that is related by blood. The family that surrounds your heart. Your Mom. Your brother. Your dearest friends. The bonds that make life valuable. Worth living. These bonds are soulful bonds, ones that are far more special than any mere trivial object. So… be with them. Forgive. Forget. Heal. Mend what is broken. Reassemble what has been shattered. And stop worrying so much. Laugh together. Cry together. Heal on another. Heal together. And may your new days be better, brighter, and full of love.

Happy Holidays.

Ty
