Reader Lucy wrote to us to ask that we suggest eight super-basic, affordable Hanukkah gifts for her boyfriend “to replace his stained light-wash jeans and Nine Inch Nails t-shirts.” We’ll offer one choice for each day the oil burned.
Above: a pack of plain white t-shirts by Kirkland, house brand of Costco. About ten bucks for six shirts. Nice heavy cotton, a little on the beefy side, if you’re not too tall, consider sizing down. (If you’re classy, we like Alternative Apparel, but if you’re thrifty, these will do well.)
