Jon's Gift Guide

I like gifts that have use and meaning for years to come. We all have plenty of "stuff" already and don't need more of it. That is why I like giving beautiful, well made items that feel special and practical. These are all gifts that will keep on giving!

Men love good, simple design but simple doesn't have to mean boring. Isaac Reina and Valextra bags and wallets are timeless yet modern, Salvatore Piccolo makes the perfect shirts and hand finished details, The Elder Statesman hand knit cashmere and FEIT's Hiker Boots with shearling lining are perfect, practical luxury.

Good design is truly timeless. Iittala's classic Ultima Thule collection was designed in the '60's yet looks modern next to Max Lamb's new Crockery porcelain vase and bowls. Denis Colomb's magnificent Tie Dye Shawl and Arts & Science handmade slippers make for unique gifts. And finally if you really want to spoil a lady these William Welstead diamond earrings should do it!

These gifts should be the perfect fix for the winter blues! The Elder Statesman's delicious cashmere sweaters and hats will keep your loved ones warm, the Indigo Storm bowls and plates by Faye Toogood for 1882Ltd and Dosa's hand loomed napkins and towels make perfect gifts for the foodie in your life, handmade toys from Dosa will bring joy to the little ones and last but not least Susanne Kaufmann's Foot Cream will keep everybody's toes soft and toasty through the winter!
