What Gives

by Nick Burns

Whatever holiday you’re celebrating, POZ’s 2006 gift guide offers a little something for the naughty, the nice and those in between.

Frosting the Snowman
Love takes a licking this holiday season, with body frosting that can transform any partner into an incredible edible. Flavors include Original Sin, Espresso Dream and Midnight Mocha. The jars are packed in a tube topped with a Hannukah Star of David.
$15.95;; 800.926.6366

Visions of Sugarplums
Sleep tight with these tones and patterns from Milli Home. Partial proceeds go to Alpha Workshops, a New York City nonprofit that trains and employs HIV positive artists (who also designed the pillows).
$85 to $145; Barneys New York, 212.826.8900

O, Come All Ye Condoms
Wrap it up in festive yuletide latex from the elves at Condomania. Our faves: the red-and-green rubbers and the one wrapped in a wreath.
$9.95 to $10.95 for 12;, 800.926.6366

Deck the Ball
Branch out with this glass ornament benefiting Broadway Cares, Equity Fights AIDS. The design comes from artist Chuck Fischer’s illustration Times Square on New Year’s Eve from his 2005 pop-up book, Christmas in New York.
$20;, 212.840.0770 ext. 250

Stocking Stuffer
No pocket in your hot holiday frock? No worries. This thong—benefiting AIDS Resources in Williamsport, Pennsylvania—packs a condom-size pouch and a rubber too.

Holiday RED
Outfit your loved ones in shirts from rock star Bono’s favorite AIDS causes. All (RED) label products, including this tee ($28; select GAP stores;, benefit the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. The One shirts ($40; contribute to One and its campaign to end poverty.

12 Days of DVDs
ABC’s Commander in Chief features a White House staffer wrestling with HIV disclosure (two parts; $29.99 each). Give the gift of gay drama with Noah’s Arc, Logo’s series about gay African-American men ($39.98). The Constant Gardner reveals a murderous Big Pharma plot ($19.98).
