I am a big fan of homemade gifts – as will still give you a few suggestions! – but sometimes there are things we cannot make, some people don’t have the time or the patience and there are projects and brands that deserve to be supported!
With this in mind, I’ve created FOUR Please Consider Holiday Gift Guides gift guides, with products I love from projects I know.

Is it only me, or shopping for men is much harder than for women?
That’s why I came up with this guide to provide with some inspiration of actually useful and high-quality goods that any dude will appreciate.
Below the image, you will find details like the link to where to buy and a small description by yours truly.
Please note that none of this content is sponsored, I am purely happy to share the love.

This book is about two friends who take a trip to the Arctic Circle, on a rubber boat, to pursuit the famous Greenland shark. Together, “they tackle existential questions and encounter the world’s most powerful maelstrom as they attempt to understand the ocean from every possible angle”. By turns thrilling, wise, and hilarious, Shark Drunk is a celebration of adventure, marine life, and, above all, friendship.
Perfect gift for all dads and uncles.
