>> Local Beer T-shirt. We have some fantastic local breweries around here and one of them--Two Brothers--is where we go on a lot of dates when the weather isn't polar vortexing all over the place. He's also a fan of Goose Island, so I figured a general "drink local" shirt would be perfect.
>> Phone Case. The Hubster is currently living on the edge and doesn't have his iPhone in any kind of protective gear (#YOLO) but he's mentioned several times that a wood case would be nice. I agree.
>> Vintage Clock. If there's any kind of time-telling feature on a device, he's into it. In the last year or so he's started collecting watches, and I wouldn't be surprised if vintage alarm clocks were next. He loves the one in the family room, but it tragically doesn't work.
>> Personalized Flask. Along with the watch collecting, Hubsey has gotten into fancy bourbons lately. They all taste like jet fuel to me, but that's okay because it means more for him. A flask would be a legit practical gift, because sometimes he wants to bring a drink to share at a party but doesn't want to drag around the whole bottle (or have it all disappear). This way there would be enough to go around but he'd still protect his investment.
>> Travel Poster. If you follow me on Instagram, chances are you saw our newly framed vintage travel posters from this weekend. Like nachos, you can NEVER have too much vintage artwork. San Francisco is Hubsey's favorite city, so this one is a no-brainer.
Normally we'd be going out to dinner tonight, but he's at a big ol' meeting in New York with his entire team today. Womp, womp. Hopefully this post cheers him up, because I can't think of anything more lame than being at the airport on your birthday when you're not going on vacation. Maybe the DMV, but it's a close call.
What have you gotten the dudes in your life lately? Anybody else in the bourbon club? Feel free to leave Hubsey some birthday wishes in the comments; he reads this everyday and I'm sure he'd love to see them right now.
Happy Birthday! :-)
