Have a Holly Jolly Christmas

Ok, I know. Too early? Forgive me friends – it’s cold up here in the mitten and I’ve just got the man with the bag on my mind. 😀

Since my main squeeze is one of my most important people I buy for each Christmas, I started a little early this year on some of his shopping. I’ve actually just been brain shopping as of this point, but I started to put pencil to paper and capture some of the things I’d like to snag for him this year. I give you: The Gift Guide for the Modern Man. Da da ddaaaaa.

A Gift Guide for the Modern Man

1. Jay likes cats and he likes bikes, so color me pumped to find this little dude. I’d say it’s purrfect.

2. What can I say, my man likes whiskey. Neat if you don’t mind.

3. Now Jay’s got an arsenal of bike tools at home, but I thought this nifty pocket style one would be good for on the go.

4. Since it’s pretty much dark when Jay leaves in the morning, and comes home at night, it’s important to have lights that are totally charged. These new usb options are perfect, since he can juice them at his desk all day.

5. It’s a modern world and my metro-man is also our house chef. I figure I’d quickly pay this one off in calories consumed if I picked this beast up for him for Christmas.

6. We live in Michigan. It gets cold here, really cold. This Smart Wool balaclava seems pretty perfect for Jay’s bike ride’s in come a frigid Michigan morning.

In addition to putting together gift ideas for the hubster, I’ve been pretty busy over here with a little side project. With all this Christmas talk, I decided to put together some pretty little cards and open up an etsy shop! I’ve only got a few designs right now, but I’ll be adding more every day.

Instead of our mugs in the picture, it would be you and yours hamming it up for the cam. 😀 That is unless you want to creep your relatives out and just send a picture of Jay and I. 😀

Here are a few of the styles up in the shop already. To see the designs larger, just click on the image.
