GUYS GIFT GUIDE

GIFT GUIDE: Alessi Watch GIFT GUIDE: Winter SessionGIFT GUIDE: BellroyGIFT GUIDE: Stance SocksGIFT GUIDE: H by Hudson

 

This time of year everyone is very busy running around trying to keep up and get things done. So we thought we would put together a few suggestions and created a few gift guides that we will be posting here on the blog each week for the month of December.

This week we focus on the guys. Besides an¬†exquisite pair of new shoes, we think¬†accessories are key! Because most men like to wear their things to the ground before replacing them, we are suggesting some great looking personal items¬†for your favorite guy on your shopping list.¬†Whether it’s a brand new watch, an¬†oiled canvas¬†backpack, a handsome leather wallet or just some really fun socks, we got you covered. See you soon?

Have a great rest of the week!

Holiday Gifts for Him

Because sometimes it’s harder to come up with gifts for the gentlemen in your life, we have come up with a holiday gift guide just for the dudes.

GUYS HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE

> When looking at your phone to get the time is not quite good enough, may we suggest a stylish modern time piece from Alessi? Their watches are well designed and make a smart looking accessory.

> Speaking of smart, how about a smart looking tote to haul all of his stuff? Winter Session totes are produced and made here in the USA, Denver to be exact. Their¬†mission is to “design and produce thoughtful, well-made things in a responsible manner.” You can’t argue with that philosophy.

> Is it time for a new wallet? ¬†When an old boring billfold will just not do, a Jfold wallet will make a strong impression. When it comes out of ¬†his pocket it will ¬†say, ” Yeah, I’m cool.”

> Have a mountain man in your life? Okay, maybe he just likes to act like one?  Wolverine boots are good looking and can withstand a 1000 miles. For reals, it says so right on the boots.

> Here is a great stocking stuffer!  A shoe care kit by Otterwax will keep his shoe collection looking like new. No more excuses!

> Did he play with a Rubix as a kid? The Cubebot from Areaware will keep him entertained at his desk for at least an hour. Time him as he tries to get the robot back into a cube. You may giggle at his expense, just a little.

> A busy business man needs a handsome bag to tote his laptop and files in style. We love this bag from Will Leather Goods.¬† It’s made to take a beating and will only get better with age.

> We have a manly collection of cuffs from In God We Trust, sans the skulls and spikes. (Not that there is anything wrong with that, of course.)

We hope your holiday season is going well, stay warm everybody!

Proud to Present: Iris Guy Design

re-souL is proud to present a closer look at Iris Guy Design.¬† Iris who is originally from Israel but now a Seattle local, didn’t start out as a jewelry artist.¬† Although you would never think that looking at her vast collection of beautiful pieces.

Originally she studied to be a graphic designer at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem.¬† Perhaps it was her early training with shapes and lines that got her to this point in her life designing jewelry.¬† “Each individual piece is handmade, culled from unspoken desires and organic forms, playful rock shapes and architectural forms.” Iris works mostly with silver.¬† Some pieces are polished for a high shine effect and others are oxidized giving the silver a black matte finish.

Starting small,  as the popularity of her personal collection grew, so did her line, eventually becoming her full time passion.  Today the Iris Guy collection can be found in fine boutiques and galleries around the world.  re-souL is just happy to have seen her evolve and grow from the start!
