Simon Doonan Thinks Gift Guides Suck

I was reading Simon (my hero) Doonan's latest article for the New York Observer, and he had this to say about gift guides:
After a casual poll of friends and colleagues, I recently ascertained some important information: People HATE gift guides, universally. I was, in point of fact, unable to find one single person who liked them, is prompted to shop by them, looked at them or even lined the cat’s litter box with them.

Well said. I don't like them either, so I'm not doing one this year. I'm just going to keep posting as I usually do, and I'll do an end-of-year wrap-up towards the end of December.

If it's good enough for Simon, it's good enough for me!
