With American Thanksgiving out of the way, Christmas is about to be thrust upon us--full throttle. And nothing says 'I care' like a thoughtful card. (Ok, maybe paying our rent for the next year or a few spa treatments would also do the trick.) Swedish sock brand, Happy Socks, has teamed up with six artists to create a set of Christmas cards. A little more affordable than what you really want to give, or get, but just as special. The artists include: James Jarvis, Giorgio Camuffo, Marok, Cream, Lisolette Watkins and Bill & Fanny. See all the cards below.

Doing the dishes can suck, and most of us aren't ballin' with a dishwasher. But we have something to brighten up the task. Yes, air drying is the best way to go, but when you run out of counter space, Third Drawer Down tea towels, help.

These would make great holiday gifts and be a good hint for that untidy roommate or boyfriend!
