2013 Politics Gift Guide Part III

Want to cast aspersions on Louie Gohmert's asparagus? How about slander his squash, or give a black eye to his peas? Each month, the Louie Gohmert CSA delivers a completely random array of farm-fresh goodies. But – rest assured – you'll always get nuts. $450 for a year's subscription.

The Revolution Will Be Photographed


Chronicle staff photographer John Anderson has been documenting Occupy Austin since the very first protest. His new book, In Search of a Revolution: Occupy Austin in Photographs and Text, captures every moment – courtroom drama, City Hall encampment, and APD infiltration. It's a powerful (and beautiful) testament to what happens when people have had enough. $59.99. www.activepresspub.com. Also available: Occupy Austin: The Encampment Months, $24.99.

Anno Domini

Maybe it's Pope Francis, and the hope he brings for a new generation, but this year's Calendario Romano is particularly filled with vroom. Since 2003, photographer Piero Pazzi has been publish­ing the calendar as a "way for people to be better informed about the Vatican." We feel positively edified. €10. www.calendarioromano.org.

Nailed It!

She's tough as nails, so why not adorn yours with a mini portrait of Wendy Davis? Meghann Rosales' mobile Nails Y'all business will fix you up with a manicure that will stand out whenever you need to stand with Texas women. www.palomabeauty.com.
