Father's Day Gift Guide
Father's Day is this weekend and I have put together the ultimate gift guide for the guy in your life. For all that he does, let's show him some thanks.Note: All of these items are handcrafted in the USA.
|Peg and Awl $36|
"These desk caddies are great for those with more than a few stray pens. They are made from reclaimed wood from antique floor joists from Philadelphia houses built in the 1800s. It is Olde Growth Pine which means that this wood had been growing for many many years before it was cut and turned into a home. The grain is super tight. Each caddy is hand rubbed with natural tung oil providing a water resistant, durable finish."
"Burroughs writes in his Indoor Studies: ...We readily attribute some extra virtue to those persons who voluntarily embrace solitude, who live alone in the country or in the woods, or in the mountains, and find life sweet...
The woodsy, earthy scent of this beard oil brings together the solitary notes of nature and craftsmanship. The smell of freshly chopped forest woods move into a dusty carpenter's workshop, leaving behind the deep leathered richness of a cobbler's apron. Its very hardy, masculine fragrance works well with the rugged scruff left behind after a lazy summer's week of no shaving to the full-grown winter's beard. In addition to smelling great, the oils also help to moisturize surface skin and condition follicles. Can be used as a beard oil or as an oil based cologne. Great for all skin-types."
