The Gift of Daley’s Balls

At this time every year, I share some products that I think would make great gifts for your special someone.  So, let’s kick off Billy’s Holiday Gift Giving Suggestions with one of my perennial favorites.  Each year, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS releases a collectible holiday ornament of a theatrical legend.  This year, you can deck your halls with Audra McDonald as Billie Holiday in Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill.  A perfect addition to your collection – or a way to start a new tradition.  Order it at

When Tom Daley picked up knitting, I thought he might start a trend.  Since I’ve yet to see a gaggle of gorgeous gays knitting, I guess it hasn’t caught on.  But Tom’s taking matters into his own hands – an image I’m sure you’ve all seen on BillyMasters.comMade With Love by Tom Daley sells you kits for you to knit your own wares – if you have the time, talent, and tendency to partake in such a DIY project.  One of his most popular items is the Winter Warmer Hat Kit.  It includes your choice of yarn color, a manual, a pattern, and some optional knitting needles for upwards of $50.  While I’d surely opt to buy my own finished hat, Tom’s kit does come with the promise of 12 inches and 2 balls.  I’ve done far more for a whole lot less, so grab yours at


When an Olympic diver is delivering two balls, it’s definitely time to end yet another column.  Sounds like a gift that keeps on giving to me!  You can get more than a foot of fun at – the site that is celebrating Cyber Monday with a special sale all week long.  If you’re in need of some ho, ho, ho, drop a note to, and I promise to get back to you before the next Sondheim revival I see comes with a choice of chicken or fish.  So, until next time, remember, one man’s filth is another man’s bible.
