Y'all we had a good handful of cold days here recently.  And I've been loving it.  There was a time I was holding on to warm days and sundresses, but I've changed my ways somehow in my late twenties and early thirties and have been craving sweaters and holiday instead.  Something about being bundle up warm and cozy in your own home with your family.  So yummy.  

With this year's early cold, I've been thinking about Christmas shopping ideas earlier then ever.  Don't worry, I haven't pulled out the Christmas music yet, but I am getting excited and thinking ahead.  I had a lot of fun picking out ideas from UncommonGoods for David -- A great site that makes finding gifts for all types of recipients easy by providing a really easy to navigate menu.  You can click here to find more of their curated gift ideas for men.  (Or shop for your mom or sister!)  They've got it all sorted!  

My favorite guy gifts I window shopped for range in price from $36 - $180, so there is a price point for all budgets.  And I know "socks and ties" are the token gift, but believe me - my guy appreciates good socks and I'm sure he has never had any made from alpaca wool before!  I also spied him coveting his brothers salt plank last time we ate over, so of course that went on the list.  There were also a lot of other personalized gift ideas (see more here) that didn't make my top 5 list, but I found several fun ideas there for the kids and grandparents!

So, if this colder weather is putting you in an early shopping mood too, now you have a good excuse to go ahead and start!

JORD - him.

Just a few weeks ago I posted about a new fancy unique watch that I'd added to my everyday wear (find that post here).  It wasn't long after being introduced to JORD wood watches that I knew my artist husband should have one too.  David, when he isn't working in the studio, is building things.  What sorts of things?...  All the things!  Like our couch, or the kids bunkbeds, or our dinning table, our fort... this guy has a way with wood.  He has also built a lot of custom frames for his art.  And when he goes building, he doesn't just go to Lowes and do a quick pick of two by fours, he finds wood all over Nashville that is reclaimed or shipped in - all with different natural beauty of color, knots, and smells.  So, of course, a wood watch from JORD makes for the perfect gift.

If you are looking for a gift idea for your guy, here is why I think a watch from JORD is a sure bet - 

1.  Well I already stated it - they are made from wood! High quality durable unique wood.

2.  They are light weight.  So if you guy is like mine and always doing a bazillion different things with his hands all day, they have an invisible feel you don't have to worry about feeling heavy or sweaty.

3.  If your guy is a gadget guy, this one that David has - The Dover, has visible "guts." An industrial exhibition face which makes it really distinctive (and fun to stare at!)  An awesome combination of nature and technology.  This from their site is how I knew this was the perfect gift for David:
Tinkering around in your parent's garage and playing with things you shouldn't, you were an inventor from the start. Having a thing is never enough. You need to know the how, why, and what of the build. Your foundation for innovation is equal parts curiosity and creation. We know you because we are you. With gears in full view and structured style, the Dover Black & Koa was designed for the maker in us all.

Clogs c/o Lotta from Stockholm

Remember this post? or this one? or maybe this?... They all have something in common - my love for these amazingly comfortable wooden clogs.  Lotta from Stockholm.  That's the brand.  Super great quality.  Durable fine materials.  Annnnd a lot less expensive then some of those other brands you might have been eyeing at Anthropologie etc.  

While a clog shoe is suggested for orthopedic use (I bought my first pair when walking was becoming painful during pregnancy), in my very humble opinion, they are a great style statement that can be worn in several different ways through out the seasons!  I put a little quick video of some of the different ways I like to wear my new high heel tractor sole clogs.

Push Play!

Fun right?? (and side not? whatever happened to Jack Johnson? love that song...).  So do yourself a favor and go check out these Lotta shoes.  I have three pairs now and I could not recommend them more.
