In case you Style Map readers are wondering what to buy me this Chrismukkah season, let me give you a couple of options!
The Bixby Bike by Shinola (above)
As I’m not the outdoorsy, adventurous type, I think that 2014 may be the year for Micah the Bike Rider. Living in Los Angeles, I have grown accustomed to driving, but why am I driving to a Starbucks that is literally a three-minute walk? If I had the Bixby bike, I could pedal my stationary butt down the block for my daily morning caffeine fix. It’s made entirely in Detroit by Americans and using all-American-made materials—not only will I feel chic on my two-wheeled transportation, I’ll also feel patriotic! Available at http://www.shinola.com.
OK, so you don’t want to spend the money on a bike? May I suggest something a tad more affordable? Made from reclaimed wood sourced from all over the world, LSTN not only has great sound quality, but the super-stylish look will be enough to spark envy from your fellow airplane passengers or subway riders. If that’s not enough reason to buy this perfect stocking stuffer, the company also donates a portion of each sale to the Starkey Hearing Foundation, a charity that helps restore hearing to the hearing impaired. Great gift with a great cause! Available at Des Kohan in Los Angeles and http://www.lstnheadphones.com.
I’ll be waiting by my mailbox for my gifts!
