Gift Guide: For the Guys



Finding the perfect gift for someone is one of my favorite things. But guys are notoriously hard to shop for! My anniversary is in a few months and to avoid launching into full-on crisis mode just weeks before, I'm starting the hunt for the perfect gift now. A tad early? Perhaps. Necessary? Entirely.

If you're also searching for a man-present, consider these guy approved items - I've had success gifting many of them. There's something here at every price point, for every type of guy, so you can't go wrong!

May I suggest the square aviators? They're hot.

Is it too late for this?




Nah. It's still January...
The Criminels du Monde calendar from Mr. Boddington's Studio has been rolling around my head for a couple months now. I love the cool, 60's Euro vibe of the hand-drawn illustrations and, of course, anything with a spy theme has my full attention.

Pocket Full of Sunshine


Every couple of weeks I pull 17,234,584,828 sticky notes out of my purse and pockets with design sketches (and sometimes random ideas and grocery lists) on them. I consider this a serious problem, people. Then I discovered this Moleskine pocket notebook that's designed for graphic designers - solution! The boxes are the perfect size for sketching out ideas for my stationery, wedding suites and baby announcements! And as if it couldn't get any better - Campo Marzio has a line of mini pens and this one is the perfect shade of cherry red. I can never seem to hold on to a pen, but this one is just too cute to lose! My purse is about to get a whole lot less cluttered...
