Holiday Gift Guide No. 4 - For the Chill Guy
Updated: Dec 15, 2020
He's chill, laid back, and thoughtful. He spends Sunday mornings lingering over the newspaper and a hot cup of coffee. He's the go-with-the-flow kinda guy, enjoys lazy afternoons, walks with his dog, and mellow vibes. Sound like someone you know? Well if not, it sounds exactly like me so feel free to send any of the below my way - p.s. I've already got the watch. I joke, of course! I've got most of these gifts. So I can attest he is going to love how these take his (or her) lazy days to next level chill.
We love Naadam for its sustainable and ethical business practices and of course, for its luxurious cashmere creations. This recycled cashmere crewneck is soft, lightweight and super sustainable. So many ways to feel good while chilling out on a lazy afternoon. $195.00. Add the jogger pants or a matching sweater for his best friend!
The Stella Felix Swiss-made automatic watch in V.3 Times Grey has a cool vibe that can be both earnest and lighthearted at the same time, with its sober grey dial and cheerful blue digits. I know I'm not supposed to pick a favorite child but if I did, Times Grey would be the one. It definitely gets the most attention (I mean wrist time).
So he can go out to walk the dog or pick up the newspaper without having to worry about a comb. Hey, it's Sunday! This cap style works on everyone and comes in a classic peaked or ‘Baker boy’ style. With so many colors to choose from, in herringbone or salt & pepper tweeds, he may never comb his hair again (I'm looking at you Bob) $65.00
Yes, you read that right, this is actually a coffee brewing alarm clock. JoyResolve believes that tech should be as decorative as it is functional and the Barisieur doesn't disappoint. This automatic coffee brewer will ease you into the day with the sound of bubbling water and the smell of freshly brewed coffee. You're welcome. $445.00
If he does most of his reading on a digital device, eye strain is a real thing. These Baxter Blue light glasses filter out nearly 80% of the high-energy blue light that comes from our screens and causes eye strain, headaches, blurred vision, and more. Plus, they're pretty stylish - just check out #petsinbaxters if you don't believe me. $89.00
Even though he's chill doesn't mean he's not always thinking. Whether he ponders which holistic treats to give his pup or the deeper meaning of existentialism, he'll enjoy the benefits of solving a crossword puzzle. The practical thinking needed to solve puzzles can actually help when solving deeper issues in life. Plus, it's a great way to spend a lazy afternoon and actually feel like you're doing something.
Speaking of existentialism, If he's looking for life’s deeper meaning, get him a subscription to Gaia. He'll have access to over 8,000 titles that challenge modern standards on everything from personal growth to ancient teachings to expanded consciousness. And my personal favorite, meditation with Kevin Courtney, who's life journey instinctively led him to a Stella Felix. $99.00 for a one-year subscription
Jack Johnson is the master of good vibes and this is one of my favorite chill albums of all time. That's all. $24.75
I hope this guide gives you a little more time to chill this holiday. Let me know if you liked this guide or leave me a note with any suggestions of your own. I'm always looking for new ways to kick back.
Wishing you the happiest holiday season,
