A few months back, our friends over at Ewin’s Dry Goods asked if we might be interested in curating a gift set for the holiday season.  We’d been fans of Ewin’s long before they joined us as an advertiser, and the decision to take them up on the offer was an easy one.  The decision on what to put in the gift set was a bit harder, but once we settled on a theme, “Essentials for a weekend with the guys,” things came together pretty quickly.  Whether you are picking this one up for yourself, or as a gift for someone else, we think each and every piece will come in quite handy next time you get together with the boys.

Sardine Can Survival Kit by Whistle Creek: Packaged in an honest to goodness sardine can, this survival kit is sure to come in handy in the stickiest of situations.  Somehow, Whistle Creek has managed to pack 25 necessities into something small enough to go in your pocket.

Field Notes (pack of three): We’ve found ourselves becoming more and more dependent on Field Notes lately.  There’s just something about actually writing things down that has a bit of a calming effect for us.

Plaid cards by Dan and Dave’s: A nice departure from your standard red or blue playing cards, these vintage inspired cards are sure to come in handy time and time again.  You’ll find two decks in our gift set.

Anchor Hat by Smathers & Branson: Whether your driving home from camping, or nursing a hangover on a flight home from Vegas, you’re not going to want to deal with fixing your hair for the trip.  This hat will look good thrown on over just about anything.

Friend Pack of Whisky Stones by Teroforma: Sure, you already know the difference the Stones make compared to ice, but your buddies might not.  This way you’ll have a couple of extra sets around when company shows up.

Pewter Hip Flask by Ewin’s Dry Goods: Crafted in England from fine Pewter, this 6 oz. flask features a captive top, so you won’t have to worry about losing anything as you get towards the bottom.  Simple, understated, and high quality, this flask is one that you will use for years to come.

To round out the package, each gift set will be packed in a repurposed cigar box and arrive with the Ewin’s artisan gift wrapping treatment.
