The Gift: Unfortunately, in today’s economy, giving someone the shirt off your back is no longer just a colloquial saying. People are literally wandering around homeless, jobless, and topless. Momimomi can’t have this. They need to clothe you in their unique, colorful, one-of-a-kind tees — at least once a month. Which is why they’re giving away a free three-month subscription to their TEea Party T-shirt of the month club (worth $120).
The Rules: We love ____ of the month clubs. Report back here (as a short link in the COMMENTS section) with the craziest club you can find. And a bacon of the month club isn’t crazy — it’s delicious. Only one entry per reader. Duplicate entries will be discarded.
The Deadline: Contest starts now and runs through midnight on 12/15.
The Gift: We’ve already given you a crack at one skateboard to take home for the holidays. Here’s another chance to win a bright, shiny new deck of your choice (that you can promptly scuff into oblivion). Up to three readers will win a Popdeck.
The Rules: We’re feeling a bit retro and bit Interweb scavenger-hunty. Find us the most awesomely Bones Brigade-era deck graphics that we can look at and fondly remember when Christian Slater’s fivehead was only a forehead. Just post a link in the COMMENTS section (please, not too long — if over 20 characters, use tinyurl.com.)
The Deadline: Contest runs now through midnight on 12/14.
The Gift: A $150 gift certificate to our favorite urban style outpost, Karmaloop, for three winners.
The Rules: We recognize that our readers are a pretty spiritually aligned group. In the COMMENTS section, let us know what bit of karmic reciprocity you undertook to earn this hefty gift certificate. And speaking of karma, only one entry per reader. Duplicate entries will be discarded.
The Deadline: Contests starts now and runs through midnight on 12/13.
The Prize: Would you rather bomb hills than countries? Skate or die? We’re serving up one customized Strike longboard from our friends at New Jersey’s Bustin Boards. It’s like Choose Your Own Adventure — if your adventure consisted of graphic, color, scheme, trucks, wheels, etc. This one comes with Randal 180mm trucks and Bustin Boca wheels, with an option to upgrade your prize for a little extra cash.
The Rules: In the COMMENTS section, name your favorite hill. (Blueberry, Hamburger and King Of are already taken). Only one entry per reader. Duplicate entries will be discarded.
The Deadline: Contest is open now through 12/12
The Gift: A one year subscription to your favorite magazine about music, style, and general fabulousness as well as the last four limited-edition 7-inch singles.
The Rules: Lots of people gathered around a table one day (or so the legend goes) to come up with the name (the) FADER. If you had a magazine, what would you call it? Reply in the COMMENTS section for a chance to win. (Give Me A Free Subscription To FADER isn’t really a great title name, FYI) Only one entry per reader. Duplicate entries will be discarded.
The Deadline: The contest is open now through midnight on 12/11

Oh holiday shopping showcases, will you ever produce a collection of giftables we actually want to buy? You will? And it’s in our city? And it’s by our best friend Gizmodo?
Brian Lam and his traveling circus of RC toys and prosumer gunmetal AV components entitled the Gizmodo Gallery is hitting the Reed Annex today at 12 p.m. (that’s — 10 minutes ago) and will run through Sunday. We suggest you take a loooong lunch and get down their immediately for three reasons: 1) The economy needs you. What better way to be a patriot than to convince yourself the time for a new Plasma TV is now? 2) Like we said, it’s a limited time only. 3) Playing with stuff beats working.
