Just 3 days away before jolly ole’ Saint Nicholas creeps down your chimney, eats those freshly baked sugar cookies, and leaves tons of pressies for all those good lads and lassies. But some of the most exciting gifts won’t be under the tree, or in the clogs next to the door, but inside the stocking so carefully hung near the fire. Though I’ve celebrated Christmas all my years, I’ve never received a bloody stocking, but if I had, below are all the lovely items I would have loved to be inside. Except the men’s grooming accouterments as I don’t have a beard.
“On ne voit bien qu’avec le cœur. L’essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.” Le Petit Prince, The Little Prince in English, is one of the most translated (over 200 languages and dialects) and read books around the world. A part of literature history translated Le Petit Prince can now be with you every day of 2015 with the Moleskine weekly/daily planner. Equipped with ruled pages and limited edition stickers to make each day un petit plus spéciale. Available online and in-stores starting at $24.50. Stay healthy and help the environment! Bobble Sport water bottle is the more stylish way to enjoy filtered water on the go. Each filter equals 300 single-servings, 1 year of repeat us equates to thousands of bottles not dumped into the environment, plus it’s free of Pthalates, PVC, and BPA. Just because your spectacles hideaway in your handbag for emergencies doesn’t mean it should be hidden away in shabby, generic cases from the optometrist. Côte&Ciel x MYKITA Eyewear Sleeve is the answer. Made of diamond mesh grip neoprene, the sleeve comes with microfiber cleaning cloth, its inverted zip prevents scratches, so more excuses!
Beards are hot no matter what hairless faced man tells you. (They’re obviously jel!) Now, a tattered, unkept beard needs to be shaven and started from scratch. Skip the start from scratch part with Billy Jealousy Beard Refining Kit. The kit name says it all, sooooo, I need say no more.
Light the candles. Lock the door. Mute every sound of stress, pressure, and annoyance surrounding you. Add Mixture Handcrafted Bath Bombs and let the therapeutic oils and scents take you to a place of complete peace – even if just for 5 minutes. Comprised of shea butter, jojoba oil, and intoxcatingly delicious fragrances, your skin will be left silky smooth and smell nice as well.
With a new season comes a new trend. Not all trends stay long, but hopefully the palm cuffs (or hand bracelets) look does. Especially if the designs and patterns are as geometrically boho as SunaharA. Perfect for those looking to ease into a new style without looking as those they are trying too hard, or be as bold and stack ‘em up for an edgier look. I don’t care how you rock it, just rock it!
