The PopCulteer
December 3, 2021

This is it. The Master List of every single thing I recommended in The 2021 PopCult Gift Guide.

I made changes to The Gift Guide this year. Like last year, I ended it in November, to allow folks to order gifts online and have plenty of time for shipping.  With the pandemic and some people being understandably shy about wading forth into the retail masses, it just makes sense to do this.  A new change for this year was combining every day’s recommendations into a single post. This forced me to be more concise in my descriptions, which was a good thing. Instead of writing 4,000 words every day about three gift ideas, I managed to cover five gift ideas a day in about 1,500 words.

This made my life easier, as did skipping weekends. It’s no secret that a good number of PopCult readers visit the blog while they’re at work. Dropping gift suggestions over the weekend gave the items I picked then a bit of a short shrift. This way every gift suggestion gets full exposure, and I got a couple of days each week to recharge my batteries. Plus I didn’t have to suspend PopCult‘s regular weekend features for the month.

Because of the nature of how I did the gift guide this year, the links will take you to the post that includes the items listed, but you may have to scroll down a bit to find the exact item you’re looking for. The exception is the children’s books and some of the T-shirts. If you click on those titles, the links will take you directly to a website where you can order them.
