If your office or friends are having a Secret Santa party this year, we’ve got you covered. Whether you’re buying for a music snob or just want to bring some laughs to the party, these books are your best bet. No one will be regifting your present!
“The Wobbit” by The Harvard Lampoon
Any Tolkien fan or excited “Hobbit” movie-goer will appreciate this book, written by the authors of “The Hunger Pains” and “Bored of the Rings.” Humor magazine The Harvard Lampoon just released its new book, this time targeting “The Hobbit.” “The Wobbit” follows Aaron Sorkinshield and his army of Little People on a journey across Widdle Wearth to steal back their Academy Awards, which were stolen by Puff the Magic Dragon. Instead of encountering trolls, wobbit Billy Bagboy faces Internet trolls, along with moblins and spiders. Readers will be chuckling from beginning to end.
“Beatles vs. Stones” by John McMillian
Impress a music lover by gifting this entertaining read about the Beatles vs. Stones rivalry. It’s not just a rivalry people started debating at bars: McMillian explains how it was created by record exes and marketing teams. The Beatles were portrayed as love-y dovey guys who want to hold your hand while the Rolling Stones were portrayed as the sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll bad boys. This gift is sure to spark some fun holiday party convos.
“White Whine : A Study of First-World Problems” by Streeter Seidell
For your friend who can’t get enough of #whitegirlproblems or #firstworldproblems, look no further than Streeter Seidell of Collegehumor.com‘s new book, “White Whine.” Chapters explore agonizing hardships, like choosing the wrong line at Whole Foods or when feathers start poking you through your pillow. Everyone at your Secret Santa party will love passing around this book, commiserating, rolling their eyes and laughing along.
