8 gifts for the person who only want the best (and usually buy it for themselves)

We all know at least 1 (probably like 4) of these people. They only want the best, trendiest, highest quality, newest thing, and they've probably already bought it 5 minutes ago and honestly, how have you not heard about it yet?? Suffice it to say, they're, well, they're exceptionally hard to shop for. Until now!

Patagonia Nano Puff Jacket

Okay so this one's a toss-up because they might already have one - after all, Patagonia is famous for their commitment to sustainable materials (recycled down, lyocell sourced from sustainable farms, etc.) and for their more recent steps into the political sphere to support environmental legislation. Basically, they're a brand to feel good about wearing. Sorry to get all serious on you there. Anyway, yeah, this jacket is super warm and looks good on pretty much everyone.


Yeti Coolers Rambler Colster

They don’t just drink beer. They savor a delicious craft brew that you’ve probably never heard of until they just told you. Give them something they can use to keep that classy craft cold. Yeti’s Rambler Colster keeps cans and bottles cold so your friend can drink that beer like it was meant to be drunk. And you gotta admit, that craft beer really is good.


Timbuk2 Jet Pack Black

This is perfect for the person whose fancy job is always sending them on fancy business trips and staying at fancy hotels. They’ll need a fancy backpack that looks really good but still fits everything they need. Timbuk2’s Jet Pack Black bag makes business travel look good. They’ll love the clamshell design to keep their stuff organized and it still has a space for their laptop. You’re such a fancy gift-giver.


Pendleton Roll Up Blanket

Even the fanciest Lake Tahoe cabins look better with a Pendleton blanket. The classic flannel patterns are always in and the leather Pendleton logo looks extra classy. Don’t forget to emphasize the fact that it’s made with pure virgin wool when they open their new favorite gift.


Converse Chuck Taylor Padded Collar High Top

These aren’t just any high-tops. These are leather high-tops. They’re like high-tops but a little extra...kinda like the person you’re probably going to give these too. A little extra sometimes? Maybe. But totally awesome and must-have in your life? Definitely.


Opinel N10 Corkscrew Knife

This is no ordinary corkscrew, this is the Opinel N10 Corkscrew Knife. Made out of French Beech wood and with a locking 10cm Sandvik stainless steel blade, it’ll be the perfect just a little over-the-top gift for that person who’s just a little bit over-the-top about their camp tools.


Fjallraven Räven 28 Backpack

They’ll be excited to show off this Swedish backpack from Fjallraven. The outer material is recycled polyester and organic cotton making it heavy duty and eco friendly. With three spacious pockets, they’ll have plenty of space to put all of their fancy gadgets and gear. Don’t forget to tell them it’s pronounced Fjällräven (FEE-AL raven).


Garmin Forerunner 645 Music

This isn’t just any Garmin (which are all already awesome), this is the ultimate Garmin. It has so many features including Garmin Pay so they can leave their wallet at phone and can store up to 500 songs that they can listen to through their bluetooth headphones so they don’t have to take their phones. The better question is what doesn’t this watch do?
