'EVERYTHING DIES' ENAMEL PINS
$12, Antisocial Jewelry: Shop here
Our girl Brittany has got tons of weird, creepy-cool stuff in her shop, from raccoon rib earrings to wet specimens to pendants made with slices of human rib.

If your loved one is less into bones, more into the idea of death, she's also got these adorable pins and other fun items up for grabs.
'GIRLS WHO COLORED OUTSIDE THE LINES' COLORING BOOK
$20, Thinking In Full Color: Shop here
Our brand-new coloring book is here and we are super excited! After a successful Kickstarter campaign, we created Girls Who Colored Outside the Lines, a coloring book featuring 12 awesome women of color and designed to inspired young girls of color to be our future heroes!
