[GIFTED] Bulbo Kettle

Fifteen years ago (in America, anyway), having a cup of tea meant dunking a Lipton or Earl Gray tea bag into a mug full of hot water.  Nobody paid attention to what kind of tea leaves were being used.  Nobody even knew what the concept of "loose tea" was, and if they saw it in practice at one of their more exotic, hippie friend's house, they would dismiss it off-hand.  "I don't want sticks in my drink," they'd say.

Well nowadays, just like we all know more about food (whether it's organic, whether it's GMO-free, whether it's gluten-free), we know more about tea.  People like your mother will call you up and declare that they've spent $200 at the David's Tea in the mall.  There's an abudance of loose teas to try and a ton of tea gadgets to waste your money on.         

So, for the newly-enlightened tea drinker in your life, this Bulbo Kettle ($135, Nordstrom) is the perfect gift.

[GIFTED] Tiki Bar Purse 

Summertime is here and you know what that means—it's outdoor drinking season!  Hallelujah!  We suffer through freezing Winter and rainy Spring to get to Summer, the season where happy hour is actually happy, shared with friends on a bar's patio instead of bleak, shared with nobody, in your apartment in front of the TV.  

One of the very best outdoor bars (aside from that swim-up bar in the resort you last vacationed at) is a beach bar or tiki bar, and this Tiki Bar Purse ($278, Kate Spade) pays tribute to that festive haunt. Keep all your usual stuff in there along with a travel bottle of sunscreen and a pack of cigz reserved only for summer patio drinking time.

[GIFTED] Ballpark Blueprint

If someone in your life is a baseball fanatic, you'll be hard-pressed to find a better gift to get them—aside from season tickets—than this Ballpark Blueprint ($185, Uncommon Goods).  Choose their favorite MLB stadium (they have 20 from ballparks all over the country to choose from), and let them revel in the memories they had taking themselves out to the ball game.  Each blueprint comes framed and ready to hang.  

That's what we call man cave ready, amiright?

[GIFTED] Walnut Pocket Knife

Back in the day, you prided yourself on being fancy free.  Who needs to carry around all of this STUFF when all I need is my wallet and my phone? you thought.  But then you grew up and you realized that carrying nothing with you means that you are unprepared for pretty much everything.  

So you invested in a small, compact umbrella.  You keep bandaids and Advil in your bag.  Being prepared feels good especially because you're not wandering around in the rain bleeding with a headache.  Wanna take being prepared one step further? Invest in a pocket knife, like your father or grandfather would.  But you don't need to be a boy scout to carry around a pocket knife, especially when you carry this incredibly well-designed Wooden Pocket Knife ($169, Grovemade).  This sure ain't your grandfather's pocket knife, but it does the job extremely well.

[GIFTED] Kentucky Derby Churchill Downs Coaster Set 


Most people watch the Kentucky Derby begrudgingly, embracing "Derby Day" as an excuse to nurse their Cinco de Mayo hangovers with some hair of the dog in the form of a Mint Julep.  But some people actually get really into the Kentucky Derby.  They're usually "horse people," which are a breed unto themselves.  

If you've got a horse person in your life, you know exactly what I mean, and you also know that this Kentucky Derby Churchill Downs Coaster Set ($130, Uncommon Goods) is the perfect gift for them.  Made from real wood that appeared in the Churchill Downs paddock from 1903-1923, your favorite horse person can have a piece of the Derby, which is a good consolation when they pick the wrong horse and lose the money they gambled next year.
