The 2017 ARIA Holiday Gift Guide!

It’s no secret that the holidays are a stressful time of year. Sure, there’s the travel, not to mention going through the security line, cooking for guests, trying to find everyone a space to sleep, or just trying to find an answer for the seventeenth relative who asks you what you’re doing with your life. But then...there’s the gifts. Who needs a gift? What do they need? What do they want? Maybe they already have four copies of the 32nd edition of Webster’s English Dictionary...time for a new plan.

So yes, holiday shopping is the worst. But because we care about you, we won’t leave you stranded aimlessly scrolling through Amazon.com when there are pickup games to be played and carboloading (read: eating stuffing) to do. And with ARIA's one-for-one model, you get to give discs to twice as many people: the one you buy, and the one we donate. So without further ado, here’s the gift guide you’ve always wanted, conveniently organized by each item we sell, because obviously you’re not going to want to leave a disc behind.

We know, it’s hard to decide which of our designs you like best. Which are worthy of making it on your shopping list this year? Well, never fear - just pick them all! Here we’ve broken down who exactly should receive each disc in our collection.
