i couldn’t help myself this year and have put together some mini gift guides. i felt like i couldn’t pass up this chance since i have been collecting shopping ideas for ages and i always want another chance to improve my photoshop skills (they’re getting better but sorry they are just not perfect, hopefully with more practice!). for the next week or so i should have about one guide a day. many gifts are from local shops though i have found some really cute items at places like anthropologie as well — it’s just a great all around store these days. hope these ideas help fill in the holes on your shopping list.
for men, from the top: (1) this adorable plaid messenger bag which i found via i love it a lot (the shop is out right now but will design upon request) (; (2) stylish earbuds from aiaiai; (3) groovy wooden sunglasses; (4) for someone who might want to learn how to butcher there is a very new butcher shop with a pig butchering classin january by the brooklyn kitchen; (5) for the bearded ones, bluebeards is a must buy; (6) his own do-it-yourself brew kit; (7) and this super cute book for new dads from cup of jo; and last (8) these globes are just fun.
