This month’s Field Guide is about curiosities.

Curiosities have a bad wrap as just being something strange in a jar. I think the right oddity in the right space can be a surprising and unique way to decorate. Even the weirdest item can look beautiful with great presentation. Here are some subtle ways to start off your curiosity collection (or display the one you already have).

Field Guide: Holiday Gifts for the Gents

Hudson Made, Prospectror Co.

Best Made Co., Bully Boy, Ball and Buck, Papa Fox Trot, Fast Company, Poler

Daniel Goodman

Stag Austin, J.Crew

A holiday gift guide for gents, or what I like to call Steven’s wish list.

A Colonel Conk shave mug because when he shaves it should be an experience not a chore. In the meantime some beard oil because that beard isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. A badge to add to the collection he wants start. A sampler pack of whiskey, vodka, and rum from Bully Boy because they are a local distillery and he has been meaning to try it. Stuff to go on his keychain because last year the airport decided to keep his swiss army knife (only on the way back). A geotail model because he loves everything about outer space. A subscription to Fast Company (finally). A Poler Stuff beanie because we don’t really need the napsack. A new NASA mug because you accidentally broke the one his brother gave him. A lighter etched by Jon Contino just because it is awesome, and socks because he has worn holes in most of his favorites.

Field Guide: Holiday Gifts for the Ladies

Rifle

Kate Spade, CB2, Crate and Barrel, J.Crew, Top Pot, Hudson Made

Bhldn

Anthtopologie

A holiday gift guide for the women in your life.

A Rifle calender to brighten up the kitchen, and a journal to jot down thoughts. Perfume from Kate Spade because it smells so good. A modern hourglass to keep track of time in 15 minute intervals. A pastry slab to cover up the counter-tops that are less than perfect. An anchor iPhone case because let’s face it, it gets dropped a lot. A cookbook from Top Pot Doughnuts because it is the best place in Seattle. Some cutting board oil because every cutting board needs it apparently (oops). A beautiful wine stopper just because, a mug for tea, and a scarf to keep warm.

This week’s Field Guide is all about hexagons.

Hexagons look great solo and in large groups. They look good on the floor, the wall, or as the floor and the wall. I know I’ve said it before, but I think geometric shapes are pretty timeless. Here are some ways to incorporate hexagons into your home.

This week’s Field Guide is all about display cabinets and cases.

Steven has a knack for collecting design toys. I would love to be able to display them in a nice glass cabinet in his future studio, of course. Here are some great ways to display anything.
