Do you dream of seeing a honey badger in the wild? Roasting a turducken next Thanksgiving? Mastering Cockney rhyming slang? Wearing lederhosen? Drinking banana wine in the Canary Islands? Then this book is for you. (But if you’re content instead to stay home and binge watch Netflix, then this book is also for you.)

Not your typical bucket list book, The Bucket/F*ck It List lets you check off “bucket,” “f*ck it,” or “done it” for each of the 3,669 items, depending on whether you intend to do it, couldn’t care less about it, or have already accomplished it. Regardless of where you lie on the FOMO/JOMO (fear of missing out/joy of missing out) spectrum, checking things off just feels good. Use this as a travel guide to the world’s most exotic festivals and quirkiest museums or as social media fodder (don’t forget to take lots of selfies).

IMPULSE-FRIENDLY PACKAGE: This chunky little paperback is easily portable at 4-1/2 x 5-3/4 and 368 pages, with room to take notes on your various adventures and add several pages of your own personal bucket list items. It’s easy to throw in any bag when you throw caution to the wind and commit to poking an anemone or hitting someone with a plastic hammer at the Festa de Sao Joao in Portugal.

A LIST WITH SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE: Whether you seek adventure, a hearty laugh, or social media bragging rights, The Bucket/F*ck It List has hundreds of list items for you. The broad scope of the list encompasses everything to be done (or not) between the couch and the open road. Doing cool stuff is awesome. But it’s just as awesome to know yourself well enough to say “f*ck it.”

A CLEVER, INTERACTIVE GIFT: With space to take notes on items you’ve added to your “done it” list, you’ll want to keep this book on you at all times to record the moments of magic it inspires—it will end up being a personal keepsake of the zany experiences you’ve logged. It’s an easy gift for anyone with a sense of humor or a sense of adventure. There are a myriad of gift opportunities: midlife crisis, graduation, monumental break-up, milestone birthday, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and more!
