Gift Guide – 2017

Text by Brooke Reynolds | Photos by Chris Whonsetler

You know you have a truly incredible gift when you want to keep it for yourself. (To be honest, don’t you wish every holiday gift you bought came as a BOGO deal so you could keep the duplicate?) The staff at Kit understands. That’s why we’re sharing our favorite things, knowing they’re so good, they’d make wonderful gifts for others, too. Happy shopping — and don’t hesitate to treat yourself. Your secret is safe with us.

Indiana Return Address State Stamp

Available on Etsy at PaperPeachShop or at paperpeach.com, prices vary by state/style

“Snail mail happens so rarely these days, but I love to send it to unsuspecting loved ones. This stamp makes envelopes much more fun! This is a perfect wedding or housewarming gift, but really it can be given anytime. It’s one of those items that people don’t typically think to splurge on for themselves; however, they’ll always love it, use it regularly and will think of you when they do!”

JOSIE SANDERS | STYLIST

Farmacy Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizer

Available at Sephora stores or at farmacybeauty.com, $45 (1.7-ounce bottle)

“I love it because it is organic and has literally improved my skin a ton! It’s truly a miracle product; my face has never looked or felt so good with no makeup. It’s a great gift because finding a good moisturizer can be tough, and this won’t react with sensitive skins since it’s an all-natural product.”

Yeti Rambler

Available at sporting goods stores or online at yeti.com, $30 (20-ounce size)

“This is one of my all-time favorite possessions, and I use it every day. I was amazed when it kept my frozen margarita intact for the entire afternoon on the beach! Ice will last for around 24 hours, and it also keeps hot drinks hot for an equally crazy amount of time.”

Baxter of California Shave Tonic: revitalizing pre- & post-shave treatment

Available at Nordstrom stores, $18 (4-ounce bottle)

“This product was the GQ Grooming Award Winner in 2016. It’s so fresh! Definitely not the normal scent or feel to an aftershave. My wife says it makes my face kissable.”
