The time for giving (and receiving) gifts is upon us! If you’re shopping for anyone creative, professional, techy, and/or generally difficult to buy for, we hope to save you some time by rounding up some of our favorite things of 2019. Everything on this list was hand-chosen by our very own team (and some of the pickiest people we know)… So you know it’s on the list for a reason. Either we love the brand, the style & function, or the way the product simplifies our daily lives. All perfectly curated presents for the impossibly picky people in your life (period).
For those who travel with way too many “essentials”
The Tech Pouch by Peak Design has pockets for days to keep all their gear organized and easily accessible. We love that it’s weatherproof, heavy-duty, and even has cable pass-through for easy device charging. Peak Design is known for their minimal yet extremely functional design, as well as their commitments to sustainability.
For the eco-conscious note-takers
You know Field Notes… Those classic, timeless, premium yet understated notebooks we all know and love and carry around to meetings every day. But did you know that the Field Notes National Park Notebooks donate 5% to the National Park Service? Now that’s note-taking with extra purpose.
For when homie needs a vibe check
We all need a vibe check sometimes. So when office feels out of whack, we just pop into our next door neighbors and get ourselves an Anthropologie Candle. Volcano is a classically fresh & subtly fruity scent that often fills our space and helps everyone chill.
For the always-connected
The Base Station Hub by Nomad is a super functional charging hub that can charge 1 or 2 phones plus Airpods wirelessly and very quickly. We love it for its super sleek, modern design and high-quality padded leather surface. Get one for their desk or nightstand or wherever they need a great-looking, no-hassle charging station. There’s also a Walnut and Apple Watch Edition.
And finally, for those that need to disconnect
The Digital Detox Kit by Pinch Provisions serves as a great reminder that the average person spends way too much online. This kit includes all the essentials to help them unplug for some much needed R&R (if they can remember how to analog).
