my christmas list

xmaslist2012

we still make christmas lists in my family.  (how else are people supposed to know what to get you.)  i had a hard time coming up with a list this year.  i have everything i need and want in the world, so it came down to a few things that i’ve been hesitant about buying and a few things i could always use.  here it is in no particular order:

fjallraven greenland jacket: i can’t figure out why i don’t have this jacket yet

ipad mini: i have the ipad 2, but i’m ready to ditch it for something a little smaller.

ebbet’s field flannel twill ballcap: i bought a red one this summer and love it.  i need another one to add to the rotation.

camp socks: they will keep your feet warm in the colder months.

jawbone jambox wireless speakers: best bluetooth speakers on the market.

glenn o’brien’s book how to be a man: i’m a big fan of the style guy, but haven’t read his book yet.  shame on me.

patagonia kleen kanteen: we went green at work.  no more bottles of water.

ledbury shirts: i want them all.

titleist velocity golfballs: i should probably be playing pro v1s, but i really like these.

dog bones: it’s christmas for riley too.

pretzel m&m’s: my weakness.

holiday gift idea: minnetonka moccasins

my parents gave me a pair of minnetonka moccasins two years ago for christmas, so believe me when i say they make an excellent gift.  they’ll run you about $55 and will be at your house in less than 24 hours courtesy of zappos.  it doesn’t get any easier (or better) than that.

holiday gift idea: sid mashburn fox tie

i deviated from the plan this morning.  the plan was to mention the above tie as a nice holiday gift suggestion, but when i went to sid’s website and saw the new double monks, it was game over.  now that the double monks are out of the way, we can get back on track.  the next item on my christmas list is this fox tie from sid mashburn.  why?  because sid makes extremely nice silk ties and foxes are one of my favorite animals.  the green is currently sold out, but the navy one looks just as good.  ties aren’t such bad gifts after all.

holiday gift idea: flannel robe

every man needs a flannel robe and this black watch tartan flannel robe from j. crew is the one to get.  they had some in stock yesterday, but are sold out today.  keep checking back and grab one for yourself or someone on your list.

holiday gift idea: filson tote bag

i can’t believe it’s december 7th.  i’m behind in my christmas shopping as well as my holiday gift ideas.  for the next couple of weeks, i’ll be posting some things that have caught my attention over the last year that would be good items to give or receive for christmas.  my first holiday gift suggestion is this filson oil finish tote bag.  filson’s website says it was designed for “hauling, shooting, and field gear”, but if you’re not into those things then you can use it as a work bag, a beach bag or a manly looking diaper bag.
