With the holidays quickly approaching, it can be hard to know what to get for that special someone who seems to have it all. We've broken it down with gifts for everyone and a bit of information about each. We hope you find what you're looking for, but remember, we're here 7 days a week to help you with that as well!
From left to right: Maple Nugget Ring, A.P.C X Jjjjound Raw Denim Tote, Blackbird Pipe-Bomb Pink Eau De Parfum, Malin + Goetz Vetiver Candle, Carhartt WIP Protect and Survive Flask.
For a less gender-driven gift, we think all of the above would make great options. The A.P.C X Jjjjound Raw Denim Tote is great for anyone who, well, needs to bring things with them every day. It's safe to say that's most people on your list, and this stylish collaborative, raw-denim gift will only get better with time. The Maple Nugget Ring is a stylish option, made of .925 silver, dipped in 14k gold and all handmade in Canada. We find the Malin + Goetz Vetiver Candle to be a hit in any home, with an over 60 hour burn time and natural wax blend for a good, clean and slow burn. And if the house already smells good enough, our friends at blackbird make some of our favorite fragrances that smell amazing on everyone. Our personal favorite is Pipe-Bomb Pink, lightly floral yet curiously complex. We only have one or two left, but the Carhartt WIP Whiskey Flask, aptly branded “protect and survive”, might be just the thing you need to pull you through the holiday season!
From left to right: Carhartt WIP Harlem Cap, Stussy Surf Keychain, Druthers Tie Dye Yarn socks in Teal/Red/Blue, Druthers Tie Dye Yarn socks in Red/Blue, Stussy Ripstop Bag, Middle State Juanita Losano Peruvian Coffee, Crap Eyewear Sweet Leaf Sunglasses (in-store only).
From the outdoorsman to the festival goer, these gifts are right on the money. The Carhartt WIP Harlem Cap and matching Crap Eyewear Sweet Leaf sunglasses will stylishly keep the sun out of your eyes. The Stussy Diamond Ripstop Shoulder Bag, also matching *wink wink*, is the perfect accessory to keep everything you may need at your side, like an extra pair of socks, for instance! And when it comes to socks, Druthers is tough to beat. These stylish tie-dye yarn socks are manufactured in Japan and will surely keep your feet warm and breathable all Fall, Winter, Spring, or Summer. And to top it all off, why not a bag of Denver’s best coffee beans: Middle States Juanita Losano, straight from Peru.
From left to right: Blackbird Tilde Incense, Blackbird Ploom Incense, Hypebeast Magazine Issue 26, Hoplite Dropper (in-store only), Brain Dead Elia Sunglasses.
On the smaller and more budget-friendly side, we made a few selections that are easy to travel with and will stuff any stocking. Blackbird doesn’t just make personal fragrance, they also make some of our favorite incense. We have 10 different types of incense pyres, but our favorites are Tilde and Ploom- sweet and pleasant, without any of the dank lingering effects that you might associate with incense. For the streetwear enthusiast, a copy of Hypebeast Magazine is a great addition for any coffee table. Though only available in store, the droppers from Hoplite are both relaxing and therapeutic, using special terpene blends that taste truly delightful. Although the sun may be setting earlier, we all know that nothing says casual and cool like a pair of sunglasses, and we think the unique Elia by Brain Dead provoke that feeling best and they look good on just about every size and shape!
From left to right: MAPLE Co. Peace Pendant & Ball Chain, A.P.C. x Brain-Dead Wallet, Stussy Big Logo Bucket Hat, Carhartt WIP x Nalgene Water Bottle, Carhartt WIP Menson Pant.
Some other great gift options to consider for the clothing enthusiast in your life start with a coupling of pieces from Canadian Jewelry manufacturer MAPLE Co. Their full .925 silver Peace Pendant and Ball Chain pair together effortlessly and are a must-have in anyone’s arsenal of accessories. Also, see that A.P.C. x Brain-Dead Wallet? It’s got a velcro closure. Who wouldn’t love that! Tired of all your friends’ sticker-slapped Nalgene water bottles? One-up them and take it a step further by purchasing a Carhartt W.I.P. branded Nalgene water bottle, which comes in two unique colorways. Speaking of Carhartt W.I.P., their Menson Pant mixes a classic Carhartt silhouette with thick, lush corduroy, making a pant ready to dress up, or thrown on.
Thanks for reading! We wanted to say, whether you buy or make your gifts, from us or from others, we hope the spirit of the holidays, that of joy and togetherness stick with you. We wish you nothing but love and empathy this holiday season, and hope we can all continue to grow together in the new year.
