Buttcrack Santa Gifts

Dear LTTers-

Have you noticed that this year it is getting harder and harder to find Buttcrack Santa gifts? I was at Hot Topic the other day (a sentence I never thought I would ever say OR think OR type!), trying to find the perfect Buttcrack Santa gift for my sister and I kept coming up with dead ends! There was just nothing I felt was worth dishing out $30 or even $14.99 for! Good Twilight gifts are becoming harder and harder to find!

Buttcrack Santa first made his appearance at Christmas of 2009. Being avid LTT readers, my sister and I both got the giggles (yes we are 26 and 29 and we still get the giggles) when she found one of “those little bottles” in her stocking with a tag “To: Team Seth, Love: Buttcrack Santa.” Our parents and husbands stared at us blankly, waiting for an explanation. There really wasn’t a good one. We both looked at each other, turned to our judgemental group and said “its a Twilight thing, you wouldn’t understand.” And with that, the Buttcrack Santa tradition was born.

But, Buttcrack Santa gifts aren’t just for the winter holidays! This special breed of Santa can make an appearance any time of year. Buttcrack Santa made an appearance in June, right before Eclipse came out and delivered me a wonderful Eclipse watching package- complete with LTT shirt, my own jorts, a replica Bella ring and other Twilight nic-nacs! Then, last Christmas I received a wonderful “Team Jacob” t-shirt, which from the looks of the orange price tag, Santa got a very good deal on!

Unfortunately, BCS was too drunk to remember my sister’s gift last year. So this year, I am bound and determined to find the best possible BCS gift for her. This search has been hard though! The stores aren’t stocking Twilight stickers, candy and key chains like they used to! Even Barnes and Noble let me down. So, my quest drove me to the Internet, where I found some real gems.

For example, did you know that for a mere $39.99 you could be a proud owner of this set of sparkling Twilight title themed Christmas ornaments?

Or, if Breaking Dawn was your favorite, you could receive these “honeymoon” themed ornaments from Buttcrack Santa this year! Now, these seem pretty easy to make, but I couldn’t quite bring myself to go to the craft store and buy a bag of fake white feathers, so my search continued.

Buttcrack Santa gifts don’t have to be holiday themed either! In fact, they are better if they are something you can use year round- like a bracelet or other fun item for your house. A good bracelet at Hot Topic can cost you anywhere upedward (see what I did there?) of $14.99, but on etsy you can find so many other varieties! Like this “Edward” handmade beaded bracelet!

Or this replica of Bella’s graduation present!

I prefer my BCS gifts to be a little more subtle however, which is why I bypassed all the wonderful creations on etsy and hopped on over to my local 5 Below. This was my last ditch effort to find the perfect Twilight gift before I hit up Michael’s to buy some feathers and a silver paint pen. Thankfully I hit the very small jackpot there, but I can’t share what I bought or Team Seth will know her gift ahead of time! I will say this: the gift is a small token of Twilight love and vampire appreciation and cost below $5 (hence the name) which is absolutely perfect for BCS’s budget. These gifts don’t have to be big or expensive, just something to give us a little reminder of the joint love of something that gave us many laughs and good times together and some great inside jokes. Buttcrack Santa is the little bit of Twilight holiday spirit in all of us LTTers.

I hope the spirit of Buttcrack Santa has inspired all of you to start your own BCS gift exchange! And although good Twilight gifts are becoming fewer and farther between, I can only hope this tradition with my sister continues for years to come!

Happy Holidays and Little Bottles to All and to all a good night!
-”Rachel B”

Rachel is right! We used to find SO many GREAT (ahem) “Buttcrack Santa” gifts every year- Etsy was FULL of the best, and now…. they are SO few & far between! I mean, there is the “Harry’s World Famous Fish Fry” Moon sent me for our 3 year anniversary (for real), but nothing Buttcrack Santa would REALLY be proud of. Have YOU seen anything?

You know who sells the PERFECT “Buttcrack Santa” gifts? (I bet you’ll never guess) We do. In the LTT/LTR Store. Stock up for the Holidays. All of them!

4 Weeks of Twimas- Oh crap you’re screwed!

Dear Friends-

We’re in the home stretch to Christmas and this is pretty much like the last week you can order anything online and hope to have it arrive by the time Santa comes down that chimney next week. So with that in mind we’ve come up with a few more gifts ideas cause if you’re like me, about half your list is still needing a check mark. AHHH!!!

We’ve got some doozies for you today!

A little taste of the Strata Collection

First off my pal and creator of the one-of-a-kind necklace I had made for UC on our 1st blogging anniversary last year: Tiffany Kunz Design. Do you like jewelry (duh) do you like super hip and modern design? Do you like really cool girls? Well then Tiff is your girl! She currently has four collections available online, everything from bracelets to earrings to necklaces to a MEN’S line! Hello tie clips! Tiff uses rough stones, reclaimed metals and hand hammered to make unique (and green!) designs. All moderately priced as well, I might add. Stock up on staples like the earrings and rings from the Nascent collection or get the newest stuff from the Plumb or Strata line. Tiff’s designs have been featured in many magazines on and some big time celebs. Get something for your friend/sister/mom/dad or Yourself. Oh and don’t have any more gifts to get right now? I have it on good authority (aka my own eyes) that this years special Valentine’s designs are outta this world. Seriously!

Shop more Tiffany Kunz Design HERE!

Whitelight for you!

Have a big Twilight fan in your life (besides you) and need something cool? Maybe you have friend you want to read the books but your loaner set is, well, on loan? How about ordering the limited edition WHITE cover Twilight Saga for them. It comes in paperback, with white covers and crimson tipped pages. Kinda like Stephenie Meyer wrote till she bleed on them just for you. Ok, weird but don’t they look cool? And affordable! Only catch? You have to order them from Amazon UK or Waterstones. But no problem, that’s why we have the interwebs!

And don’t forget the lovely Adrienne and her amazing artwork. We’ve also updated the LTT store with a few brand new designs (Spoiler: Calendars!! and MOANtreal makes an appearance) and all the other weeks of Twimas can be seen HERE!

If all else fails get a gift card!

Merry Holidays!

4 Weeks of Twimas – Give Back aka we donate an Alpaca in Taylor Lautners name!

Dear LTT-ers,

So we’ve been taking every Tuesday to share some great ideas for holiday gifts this year be it Twilight/Rob related or not! We’re here to make your life easier by bringing you all the best.

So we’ve brought you some fun gift ideas these last two weeks but we thought this week we’d bring you come good alternatives to traditional gifts. This week we present you with a few great gift ideas with a deeper meaning and cause. Not only will they mean something more than a thoughtful gift they’re affordable ways to give back and raise awareness about many causes. If you’re like me and have some of those hard to buy for people on your list (DAD! Stylish Boss!) than I present you some gifts in every price range with big heart!

Falling Whistles

Falling Whistles
We wrote about this amazing cause over at LTR when I found a picture of Kellan wearing a Falling Whistles Necklace which led to contact with a great gal at FW and leads us to want to keep sharing this amazing story and the necklace it inspired with you guys. Do you have a fashion and justice minded person on your shopping list this season? A Falling Whistles necklace might just be the thing for them! FW is a campaign for peace in the Congo and asks us to be whistle blowers for peace and change. Not only to stop the war but to raise awareness about child soldiers  and our world’s largest war still going on.

Learn more about Falling Whistles and buy your very own HERE!

Oxfam

Oxfam
Or if you’re more into the furry kind of gifts, you can do what UC and I are doing by sponsoring an Alpaca Meadow through Oxfam! For 75 dollars you can donate, in your recipients name, an Alpaca Meadow (or chickens, or a herd of goats or childrens school uniforms, etc the list goes on!) and Oxfam partners with an individual in need to provide them a way to provide for their families and help stop the cycle of poverty. So this Christmas somewhere in the Andes Mountains a person in need will be given an Alpaca in the name of Taylor Lautner and LTT readers everywhere from Moon and UC!

Learn more about Oxfam and ways you can contribute HERE

So if you were stumped on what to get some of your list this year I hope we helped un-stump you. Or least showed you some of our favorite places to give back and helped educate more folks out there of some amazing causes helping people all over the world. These are definitely not the only places you can support this holiday season. Check your local Boys and Girls Club/Church/School/Salvation Army/etc for more great local places to volunteer and give back this holiday season!

Merry Christmukkahwanza Festivolstice!
Moon and UC
