Village Gift Guide: Him

Monday, December 19, 2011



1. Clean Everything Wallet (via mat)
2. Noise Cancelling Headphones - these are heavenly on a plane, train...anywhere really..
3. Book: Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance - one of both M and I's favorite books - motorcycle travels and philosophy all in one..
4. European Outdoor Adventures Film Festival DvD - this is full of inspiring films about people and their adventures in rock climbing, climbing mountains in -40C weather, white water rafting in the congo, etc...We attended the actual film festival a few weeks ago and it was definitely a rush.
5. Chambray Tie - they are all the rage
6. Whiskey glasses - for the guy who is maturing gracefully and ordering whiskies at the bar
7. Para-gliding Lessons - no big deal.


Good luck shopping for him - it's always the most difficult for me! I hope this jump starts your thought process though (but really guys, it's a week before christmas, hope you are done!)
