Three Inches High and Rising
Although we’re partial to the fabric-based end of things, we have to cop to this one: the perfect gift is usually some variety of toy.
And in the case of your more lyrically minded friends, it’s probably a toy replica of the three-headed lyrical beast known as De La Soul.
These limited edition figurines
come courtesy of Kid Robot, which is why they’re so square, and why they’re warped enough that non-heads might not recognize the trio. But perched on top of the right boom box, they should be unmistakable.
