+ Apolis // One of my favorite boy shops. They also run a neat blog on their website! I love the modern stylish aesthetic this place gives out. Here I did choose some clothes, a sweater and parka, just because they're so darn lovely. They also have some bundled sets which are super awesome. A classic button down and chambray tie for only $136 ! The ties are sold on their own too in beautiful colors. I also love the idea of fancy handkerchiefs and canvas and leather bags. And if your boy likes to go to the farmer's market that boyish eco friendly bag is the perfect thing for him to carry home vegetables and fruits in !
+ Hickoree's Hard Goods // I love this place because of it's woodsy outdoor yet stylish feel. I especially love the grooming things this place stocks. Wood body cream and tobacco shaving soap by Portland General Store. More ties and handkerchiefs and bags. Beautiful leather wallets by Maxx & Unicorn. Notebooks if your boy likes to write and if your boy is a handyman or crafter, the coolest apron ever ! I also loooooved the old timey sling shot. I can just imagine the fun Isaac would have with that and I think it's such a cute unique gift.
+ Old Faithful Shop // Another favorite. I love the simplicity and modernity. I love love the photography and their blog which you should check out. And if you happen to be in Vancouver, visit the shop and tell me all about it. I'd be quite envious! Their online shop doesn't have a plethora of things but what they do have are incredibly special and unique. I loved the wood tray block and tape dispenser. The knife is definitely an upgrade from your run of the mill red Swiss Army knife. I also think laptop covers are excellent gifts, too ! I've seen a lot of really great ones on Etsy and tons of other places. I loved this one because of the button details. Now, I'm really loving this book called "Brooklyn Diary" which showcases different Brooklyn artists and they're favorite local places. It looks like it's filled with fabulous photography too !
+ Lastly, gadget covers! I saw these and fell in love. I love how they're made to look like books. I love their simplicity and sleekness. They're just all around amazing. They're made for Nooks, Kindles, iPads and iPhones. I want some for myself !
