2016 Gift Guides // The Minimalist

2016_giftguide_minimalist


First off – we hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving, ours were wonderful 🙂

And secondly, Thanksgiving has come and gone, and we’re jumping right to Christmas! While we still can’t believe the holiday season is actually upon us, we can’t pretend it isn’t happening anymore…time is ticking!

We’re starting with the minimalist gift guide – for that person in your life that wants, simple, meaningful, thoughtful gifts that err on the side of handmade, sustainably produced and/or detail oriented. The minimalist doesn’t want much, but they want quality items that they can rely on. Be willing to spend a little more on the minimalist in your life for a piece they will cherish.

Sibling Gift Guide

Sorry for the radio silence on Friday! It was a busy week followed by an even busier weekend – Christa’s 25th birthday! Reg came to Hartford for a weekend of delicious food, great holiday shopping, and a fun b-day bash! But we’re back in holiday mode- gifts have got to be bought, shipped and wrapped in less than 2 weeks (eek!). So we preset to you the sibling gift guide…

First up – gifts for your brother!

Valentine’s Day Gift Guide // For your guy

gm_Vday_Guys

Whether it’s your bf, guy friend or Dad, all men like a little spoiling on VDay (even if they don’t admit it)! It can be as simple as a card and some candy, but if you really want to show him something special, we’ve got you covered!

1 // Flask – Something leathery will always seem romantic on Valentine’s Day, even if it’s a flask. He’ll be happy to show this off to his guy friends and brag that it was from his lady.

2 // Watch – The two tone and sleek face have a 60s feel that he’s bound to love.

3 // Card – This gorgeous letterpressed card is simple without being too sappy (perfect for a guy). While we love to get our hands on amazing letterpressed cards, we’re not above making our own! In fact, that’s usually our game plan. Whether you make a card or buy one, make sure to tell him how much you care about him inside!

4 // Bow Tie – This falls more under the category of a specialty VDay gift, but how could we resist, it’s just so adorable (and red)!

5 // Letter Holder – Home decor & accessories can work for both you and your man, and this romantic letter holder will hopefully spark his interest in writing you love letters!

6 // Candle – It smells like camp fire (Cedar & Sandalwood)…how manly is that! Your candle lit evening will be even more romantic with the aroma of a cozy fire nearby.

7 // Socks – I mean, come on. Smart Wool and argyle? Done deal.

8 // Boxers – Another Valentine’s Day novelty item, but who doesn’t love a little novelty item now and then? Underwear is underwear, and weirdly everyone loves getting new underwear as a present!

9 // Kitchen Spoons – These cute spoons will add some Valentine’s Day color and cheer to their kitchen! They’ll serve as a reminder every time he uses them of how much you love him!

10 // Messenger Bag – Whether they like to admit it or not, every dude needs a practical man bag. This one is the perfect messenger weekender to keep him organized on the go.
