So, Hanukkah ended last night. Did you totally nail the gift-giving game? Well, just in case you didn’t follow our Ultimate Pop Music Gift Guide, giving a solidly last-minute “ummm… high five!” eight nights in a row, here’s a top-40 swag roundup that’ll guarantee you totally kill it come Christmas time.
Presenting MTV Buzzworthy’s Retro Pop Stan Holiday Gift Guide, chock-full of the perfect presents for that “TRL”-obsessed friend on your list who thinks that 1997-2004 was perhaps the most flawless era that pop music — nay, THE WORLD has ever witnessed. You know, that pal who still regularly prays at their D.I.Y. altars to the Backstreet Boys, Aaliyah, and *NSYNC when no one’s looking? That buddy who still yearns for the days when a chunkier Carson Daly stanned for Papa Roach? (So, you know, ME.)
Well, this gift guide’s totally got ‘em covered with everything from vintage Ricky Martin tour t-shirts, Spice Girls-style white platform sneakers, Brandy‘s iconic Barbie doll, and a Missy Elliott coffee mug that says: “Open yo’ mouth, give you a taste.” Yep, A MISSY ELLIOT COFFEE MUG THAT SAYS: “OPEN YO’ MOUTH, GIVE YOU A TASTE.” Needs it!
Oh my god, and that’s not even mentioning the Britney Spears gel pens and that …Baby One More Time-era “Time Out With Britney Spears” DVD. It’s funky. It’s cool. It’s email. It’s EVERYTHING. Just like every item on this list.
