Ladies First:

York River Traders - Boat Bag This bag is a great addition for the girl who has everything. It has our stylish mariner belt handles AND it zips closed. I am loving the White and Nantucket Red! I have the yellow one but I think I’m going to need to add this one to my collection…

Sh*t That I Knit – The Gun Beanie This stylish and comfortable hat is a great way to keep your girl’s head warm during the winter! The pom-pom is real fur – either coyote or fox. P.S. there are more colors and style options!

Artemis Design Co. – Classic Kilm Loafer Bostonian Milicent Armstrong’s company Artemis Design Co. makes awesome shoes. Each pair is handmade out of different rug materials so while they are beautiful they’re also tough enough to survive all of your adventures.

Tuckernuck – Bee Studs These adorable bee stud earrings are perfect for that WASPy girl in your life! They add just the right amount of fun to an outfit without being too much.

For the Gents:


York River Traders – Mariner Rope Belt Why mess with a good thing? The Mariner belt is the perfect way to spice up your man’s waist line! Go with classic navy or go rouge with yellow or red!

Duende - Mens Tuxedo Loafer These stylish tuxedo loafers are perfect for the man in your life. Work with owner Alden to create custom loafers that fit your man’s style!

Sh*t That I Knit - Patriots Beanie Help him show his support for Tom and the boys while keeping his head warm!

Offerman Wood Shop - OWS Keychain I am not at all afraid to admit that I am OBSESSED with Nick Offerman aka Ron Swanson from Parks and Rec. He also actually has a woodshop, where you can find awesome handmade gifts! Help make sure your man can always find his keys with this cool keychain!
