This time of year there are gift guides galore everywhere you click. We may be coming to the holiday party a little (fashionably?) late in the game, but with our salty twist to this list, these gifts won’t go out of style or show up at an ugly sweater party! We’ve pulled items that remind us, in some way, of the wonderful ocean and rocky coast we love so much. Nautical inspiration is where it’s at for us this year… and a couple of these gifts are pretty special.
2. Is a pair of shades perfect for a sunset sail, or your daily commute, and they’re built from old wooden lobster traps. We’ve actually met John, the founder of Traps Eyewear… of course he is super cool and has an amazingly entrepreneurial and creative spirit. 6. Is a fantastically dreamy white sailboat kite, which reminds us of the Portland Schooner’s Wendameen, but it would also make an awesome sculptural piece of art if you’ve got the room- can’t you see this hanging in a kids’ room? Here and there we’ve thrown in some tasty salt and salty candies for good measure and to round out our ideal wish list gift list is the Indigo Double Cowl from the Maine company Swans Island. Not only is it an exquisite blend of merino/silk yarn, it’s symbolism- the infinity wrap- speaks to us. You’ll see.
May your holidays be merry and bright! Hayley and Blair
