Does your brother or sister pride his or herself on knowing that band you haven’t heard of? You know, the one they’ll deny liking when they’re wildly mass and popular? Do they see advance screenings of indie films? Have they been stopped for street-style shots?

If you answered yes to any of the above, then you’ve got the classic too-cool-for-school sib. Don’t worry, I have one, too, and they’re nearly impossible to shop for. So as somebody with a little experience, let me guide you through gifting them for the holidays.

Cannabis Candle

Malin + Goetz Cannabis Candle, $52 from Bloomingdales
Okay, I know what you're thinking, but hear me out. On a recent trip to see Sarah Mills, the woman who cuts my hair (and my too-cool-for-school brother's hair at my suggestion) I caught the wiff of this candle. And no, it doesn't smell like a bunch of hippies smoking ganja, it smells more like an old library. It's the most distinguished smelling candle I've ever smelled.
