Holiday Gift Guide for the Goth
I don’t know about you, but there have been a fair amount of instances over the years where I wanted to get a gift for a friend but was at a loss because I had no idea what to purchase for them. Yeah, you could get them a gift card or money, something innocuous. But there’s really no fun in that. Or maybe I’m the only one who enjoys the process of searching stores and getting that rush of satisfaction. There are times when I would have loved getting my hands on that guide that tells you exactly what to buy and for who.
This season, give that lovely goth girl in your life something great that she’ll want to wear to all the hot underground parties. People generally view goth as heavy dark makeup and lots of spikes, generally Halloween-ish. But I’ll bet you they’ve never seen the trendy, stylish side of goth fashion.
