100 Pop Culture Gift Ideas

From Rapper Muse Shirts to Cult Character Necklaces

— December 14, 2014 — Pop Culture
These pop culture gift ideas might have you feeling a tad nostalgic.

Grumpy Cat, Mean Girls, Nirvana and Ryan Gosling. What do these things have in common? They are, of course, all symbols of contemporary pop culture. While some might dismiss pop culture as frivolous or trivial, I tend to agree with the opinion of Rob Fleming, the protagonist of Nick Hornby's novel 'High Fidelity,' (later adapted into a film starring John Cusack), that the books and records and films you like really do matter.

This year, treat the pop culture fanatic in your life with something that really reflects their interests, whether that be a silky pillow with Ryan Gosling's face printed on it or Miley Cyrus twerking doll.
