Kim Kardashian's Custom Birkin: The Best Twitter Reactions

Kim Kardashian probably has a closet dedicated to her Hermès Birkins. But the newest member of her collection is definitely the most over-the-top. (Yes, more over-the-top than her Birkin diaper bag.)

What we know about the custom creation: It’s a Christmas gift from Kanye West, hand-painted by contemporary visual artist George Condo and retails for about $40,000 (according to The Cut). But that 40k price tag just covers the gigantic bag (seriously, North could fit comfortably inside there). It does not include whatever amount West dished out for the nude bodies painted on the purse.

What we also know: PEOPLE readers are not loving Kardashian’s new accessory. And on Twitter, people are not holding back their emotions.

So as we sit here and make a list of all the things we would want other than the bizarre Birkin (a new car, 40 pairs of Christian Louboutins … you get where this is going), read a roundup of the best reactions below. Plus, don’t forget to share your thoughts! Read More

Yes, it’s crunch time! Also known as the weekend in which people rush the mall trying to load up on stocking stuffers, marked-down last minute finds and something — anything — for Dad. (He’d like this hovercraft shark, right? Right?)

While it’s too late for many online retailers to get things in time for Christmas, there are plenty of things left in our gift guide that you could snag on a trip to a brick-and-mortar retailer. We rounded three of them up, above (Victoria’s Secret pom-pom beanies, Nate Berkus for Target vases and folding Ray-Ban aviators), but there are plenty more to chose from in the galleries below.

Jordin Sparks's Holiday Plans: Good Food, Family Time ... and Matching Christmas Jammies with Jason Derulo?

Jordin Sparks is always in some version of our ideal party outfit on the red carpet, so we were psyched to get her take on what to wear now that holiday soirée season is in full swing. And we were equally surprised by her answer.

“In my downtime you can give me a pair of cute sweatpants and a tank top and I’ll be the happiest girl ever,” she tells PEOPLE, noting that while she loves to get dressed up for the red carpet, it’s not what she ordinarily gravitates to — much to love Jason Derulo’s amusement. “I love to wear sneakers, but I’m a size 11 so I go to the men’s section to get a pair that doesn’t hurt my feet. Jason’s so funny — he’ll be like, ‘Can you try wearing some cute flats or, what do you call those, gladiators?’”

Perhaps Sparks can expect a pair of gladiators under the tree from Derulo this year; after all, he’s spending the holiday with her family for the first time. “I’m so excited,” she said — and when asked if they’d be in matching Christmas PJs, she lit up. “That’s such a good idea! I should totally do that this year.” (We’ll be checking Instagram for the promised photo, Jordin!)

Gifts That Give Back: A Pretty Scarf That Helps Abuse Survivors

You’ve been busily bookmarking our gift guide, but this December, we’re also going to draw your attention to great gifts that also give back — to the community, to children, to the world around us. Check them out, and share your favorite gifts that give in the comments.

We already knew Julia Roberts had good taste and a big heart. That’s why we weren’t surprised to see the star recently wearing a scarf from one of our favorite brands, which gives back to one of our favorite causes. She was spotted in N.Y.C. with Theodora & Callum’s “Joyful Heart Wearable Art” scarf, a pretty pink-and-red creation that supports Mariska Hargitay’s Joyful Heart Foundation, which helps survivors and victims of domestic and sexual assault and child abuse.

RELATED: More gifts that give back – right here!

Theodora & Callum is donating 20% of the proceeds from the scarf to the Joyful Heart Foundation’s efforts to bring education, empowerment and joy into the lives of these survivors and to help create global change to eradicate these issues. But besides being a wonderful cause, it’s also just a beautiful scarf — that would look as chic worn with a coat as it does worn on the beach with a sarong (celebs like Jenna Dewan-Tatum love doing that with their T&C creations). Check it out here, and read more about the Joyful Heart Foundation’s mission here.

How are you giving back this holiday season? What’s your charity of choice? Let us know in the comments.
