Stocking Stuffers for Your Dude

Stocking Stuffers for Him

It’s official – I caught the Christmas spirit. I’ve been trying to resist the urge to pull out all my boxes of decorations until Thanksgiving is over. But I don’t think I’ll be able to hold off for much longer. The early Christmas vibes are contagious this year and I just want to doll up all my taxidermy with tinsel!

In the meantime, I figured I could at least get a couple gift guides going already so all you early shoppers can start checking your lists. Kicking it off, I’ve compiled these rad stocking stuffers for your dude. Gift guides for guys are often pretty lame. Can we all agree? We get it, you like whiskey and beard stuff… So I promise this list is free of whiskey stones and beard oil. Just some cool stuff your man will actually use. And better yet, most items are under $20!

1 // Crossbones Zippo, Imogene & Willie
2 // Blak Opium Soap, Occulture Shop
3 // Palo Santo Sticks, Iron & Glory
4 // Throne Spray, Manready Mercantile
5 // Gentlemens Lip Balm, Lucky Bastard Co.
6 // Han & Chewie Socks, Stance
7 // Monarchs Playing Cards, Theory11

9 // Vintage Folding Knife, Luckytage
10 // Pitch Black Field Notes, Field Notes
11 // Wild Ones Never Die Key Fob, P&Co.
12 // Valhalla Java, Death Wish Coffee Co.

Hope this list inspires your holiday shopping! Stay tuned for more gift guides in the coming weeks!

Corinne’s Birthday Wishlist

My B-Day Wishlist

One of my least favorite days of the year is quickly approaching – yep, my birthday. I hate getting older, and being reminded my 20s are rapidly slipping away from me. The only thing that makes it a little less depressing are gifts. The concept of birthday gifts is funny to me – they’re both congratulatory and sympathetic – “Congrats on surviving life thus far, and our deepest sympathies for another year closer to irrelevance.”

Haha. Birthday pessimism aside, here’s some pretty rad things I’ve had my eye on lately.

1 // Golden Protective Hand Ring, Kaye Blegvad
I have a bit of a hand fetish. I draw hands, collect hand figurines, wear jewelry featuring hands. So this little hand ring needs to be in my possession.

2 // Botanical Crop Top, Hanmattan
My closet has accumulated quite a few graphic crop tops that I pair with high-waisted skirts. This one featuring a botanical illustration would make a nice addition.

3 // Starburst Studs, Mason Grace Jewelry
These starburst earrings are way outside anyone’s budget, but I’ve been searching high and low for a pair of 8-pointed star earrings, and these gold and black diamond studs could not be more perfect.

4 // Dog Portrait Oil Painting, Alpen Antiks
I have a small collection of dog ephemera. It’s super silly, but one of the next collections I’m hoping to start is a gallery wall of vintage dog portraits. I just finished a dark and moody 18th/19th-century style portrait of Scout to kickstart the collection. But I’ll be keeping an eye out on our estate sale hunts for more.

5 // Joslin Pillow, Joanna Gaines
Although my personal style is darker and odder, I – like the rest of America – have fallen completely in love with anything and everything Joanna Gaines touches. (Anyone who doesn’t like the Gaines doesn’t have a soul.) These pillows are no exception. I’m dying for some high quality, neutral yet textural throw pillows for our gold velvet couch.

6 // Arsenic No. 17 Parfum, TokyoMilk Dark
TokyoMilk’s Dark collection has some of my favorite scents. I have this fragrance as the hand creme – notes of absinthe, vanilla salt, cut greens, and crushed fennel – but need the spray perfume now.

7 // Case Study Planter, Modernica
More than anything, I just want more plants and large cacti for my birthday.

Valentine’s Gifts for Your Dude

Valentine’s Gift Guide for Him

The holiday of candy hearts and drug-store teddy bears is upon us. If you’re like Dave and me, and can hardly stomach the plethora of pink around every corner, then this gift roundup is for you. Since you lady readers loved my past odd gift guides, I thought I’d do one for the equally strange dudes in our lives. Enjoy and pass it on!

1 // Dracula in the Streets, Wolfman in the Sheets shirt, Local Boogeyman
Brag on your Bela Lugosi bae and let the world know what a monster he is (in the best way possible).

2 // Death Before Decaf mug, P&Co.
For the coffee snob who likes it black and bitter, just like his soul.

3 // Brass Siren Pocket Knife, Vintage Crack
What’s sexier than sirens who seduce sailors to their watery graves? You might not be siren sexy, but at least your man will think of you every time he uses this mermaid knife.

4 // Leather Snake Back Patch, Shrimp Sauce
Charm your man with this super rad and super huge leather back patch featuring a 19th-century engraving inspired illustration of a snake.

5 // The Empire of Death, Paul Koudounaris
I don’t know about you, but as someone who spent her honeymoon pilgrimaging to incorruptible corpses in Italy, I find ossuaries and charnel houses incredibly romantic. This book is full of beautiful decorated skulls and religious structures adorned entirely with human bones.

6 // Partial Goat Skull, Mediterraneon
When in doubt, get him a skull. Who doesn’t need more skulls?

7 // Memento Mori Biker Ring, Rough Design Co.
This design was molded from a Victorian era Memento Mori ring, a time when death was much more romanticized. Remind your lover that while your bodies are mortal, your love is eternal.

8 // Aged Bourbon Beard Tonic, Madame Scodioli
This one is a gift for you as much as it is for him. He’ll have a soft kissable beard that smells like “richly aged wood and warm vanilla, earthy spice and the slightest hint of cherry and caramel.” Win win.

Hope you ladies & gents got some good ideas from this list. I know the descriptions are a little silly, but these are seriously rad pieces that all support small businesses and artisans. So whatever you buy your dude this v-day, be inspired to shop small!
