TeeHunter 2017 Gift Guide

by on Nov 07, 2017

Gift-giving season has arrived and with it, the challenge of finding the perfect gift. The t-shirt is the ultimate gift for just about anyone. We’ve all got at least one tee we call a favorite. There is a t-shirt for everyone. To make gift-giving a bit easier, we’ve compiled a list of the best t-shirt and accessory gifts for each type of friend.

A Gift For Every Type of Friend

By my keen interpretation of the definition of Urban Dictionary, there are various types of gamers and quite a wide spectrum of those who game. It’s believed by some, that over one-half of the population “games” and is therefore considered a gamer. From Casual-gamer, to hardcore-gamer, from cheat-coder-user to the master of all levels, from mine-craft to resident evil, we are all connected to a gamer. These tees and gifts will be a great choice for that friend of yours. That friend with the ridiculously good eye-hand coordination.

Subset interests of The Gamers: Fallout 4, Skyrim, Undertale, Resident Evil, Portal (1&2), Halo, Call of Duty, Grand Theft Auto, Mario, Legend of Zelda, Half-Life Assassin’s Creed, BioShock, Dark Souls…

The closet gamer remains on the spectrum of “the gamer” but tends to fly under the radar. The closet gamer either denies or ever-so-slightly hides his or her choice pastime of gaming. Likely, you knew your friend a while before you found out they were into gaming. The best gifts for closet gamers are a little more subtle but show their pride and represent their truest selves nonetheless. Note: Often the best way to spot a closet gamer, is that they will be incredibly good at thumb wrestling with no obvious explanation:

Subset interests of The Closet Gamers: Same as the gamers above but they might not advertise it.

For the Harry Potter fanatics and the game of throne junkies. It might appear they already have every piece of fan-boy memorabilia a person can buy, but that’s never the case. A true fan of a cult of Book-Turned-Cinema Fans truly appreciates all things on the theme. It’s why when we see an R2D2 toaster, this person immediately comes to mind.

Subset interests of The Book-Turned-Cinema Fan Club Cult Members: Harry Potter Fans, Game of Throne Fans, Hunger Games Fans, etc.

Your friend, the Computer Nerd speaks in terms you don’t always understand. That’s ok. It’s easy to forgive the guy that troubleshoots your computer and rids your device of all evil viruses. You’ll never guess a PC Nerds computer password and you’ll never quite understand his jokes. But he’s a dang good friend to have and these gifts could express your gratitude.

Subset interests of The Computer Nerds: PC fanatics, Mac Fanatics, Programming, Hacking, Tech Conventions, Latest Apps etc.

It’s not until someone mentions “living in the now” ‘til you realize this friend never does. They quote decades-old Disney movies and make references to things long gone. The Reminiscer found their favorite things 15 years ago and never changed. These gifts for your friend the-reminiscer will take you back in time.

Subset interests of The Reminiscers: Early 2000s Culture, 90s Culture, 80s Culture, 70s Culture, Terms Like “Throwback,” Words other people no longer use, Retro Things, Thrift Stores

They’ve got more followers that you know people and a keen eye for grammable moments. Your Instagramer friend is constantly introducing you to rad accounts and high-profile “influencers”. Their hashtag game is on point and they’ve become increasingly obsessed with mountainscapes and skylines in recent years. You’ll find the Instagram-er referencing their personal style. These gifts will be right up their ally #winning.

Subset interests of The Instagram-ers: Beautiful Photos, Hashtags, Mountainscapes, Latte Art, OOTD, Changing Seasons

See Best Tees for The Instagram-er



The center of attention by default, the Funny Guy is your friend who is always a good time. He where’s shirts with large kittens and seems to have a way with the ladies that rides solely on his personality. The Funny Guy is hard to keep up with but you like him anyway. He’ll wear and appreciate anything you give him which is why we choose these gifts just for him.

Subset interests of The Funny Guy: Sarcasm, Dad Jokes, Pranking, Silly Dancing, Standup Comedy, Entertaining Friends, Being a wingman

Your anime-tor friend has drawn you more than once. Literally, this friend has sketched in their skillful anime-fashion an image of you and it’s rad! They may occasionally reference another world they are a part of and spend plenty of time interacting as a complex character they’ve personally developed over time. This friend is loyal, awesome and we’ve got the gifts for them.

Subset interests of The Anime-tors: Anime Stuff

Constantly on the quest for their next show, the Netflix Binger has a more than one live-stream account. If you’re lucky, they’ve shared their login for Netflix, HBO Go, Hulu or the like (are we legally allowed to write that!?). You talked to them on Tuesday and by Friday, they’d cruised through three seasons of their current fave. The TV Binger loves, loves, loves their favorite shows and appreciates anything that’s associated. These gifts are for them.

Subset interests of The Netflix Bingers: The Office, Orange is the New Black, Game of Thrones, Pretty Much any Popular T.V. Show

This friend embraces all things “basic” with full-blown enthusiasm. They are the only person you know that actually says, “YOLO” and they pride themselves on knowing the best avocado toast in town. They claim that Millennials are just misunderstood and they might just be right. These are the best gifts for them.

Subset interests of The Millennials: Y.O.L.O., Wine, Avacado Toast, Changing Jobs

This friend might have their feet on the ground but their head… in the clouds. The Dreamer friends’ style might best be described as “whimsical” and altogether surreal. Stick with dream-like products and feel-good when purchasing for this friend. Here are some of our favorite gifts for this type of friend:

Subset interests of The Dreamers: The Word Whimsical, Abstract Art, Fairy Tales

The hipster friend pays close attention to style and prefers only to wear tees that are truly vintage, pun-ny, or support a just cause. The hipster drinks his coffee from only the finest of local coffee shops. While a gift card to the local thrift store might be the best option, we’ve compiled these gifts for the hipster friend.

Subset interests of The Hipsters: Being Unique, Nitro Coffee, Vintage Things, Not Using a Microwave, Beards Before they Were Trending, Intelligent Debates

See Best Tees for The Hipster



The Book Worm has read more books this year than you have in your lifetime (unless of course you too are a bookworm). The Book Worm is known for staying in rather than going out and will choose a tv-less living room with a warm fireplace over a room with a big screen, any day. This type of friend is intelligent and gentle and has a strong appreciation for high back chairs.

Subset interests of The Books Worms: All things ready, Cozy Blankets, Rainy Days, Warm Fires, Adequate but soft lighting

Your foodie friend fits into one or two categories. One, they love the presentation, execution, and quality of great cuisine or two, they are absolutely obsessed with a very specific food or food group. Such food groups might include but are not limited to: pizza, ice cream, avocados, General Tso’s Chicken, sushi, Red Starbursts, Cool Ranch Doritos, fondue, those caramel-apple lollipops, breakfast, brunch, pasta. You get the point. If you can categorize your friend into the “foodie” group, then these gifts might just be perfect.
