Jolly Good Fellas
Last year, Santa granted your wish and gave you the man of your dreams. (That extra tray of cookies totally worked.) And this year? All you want for Christmas is a clue on what to get him.
Instead of waiting for the bearded wonder to get back to you (let’s face it, he’s got to be kind of busy), check out our gift guide for a few great ideas on what to get your guy.
Give your surfer dude the gift of killer style with a locally designed T-shirt from Vers Hawaii. Made of 100 percent organic cotton, the Tools of the Trade T-shirt showcases designer Matthew Kawika Ortiz's intricate line drawings with a gnarly screen-printed collage of boards, surf accessories and tools. Available at Drift Boutique, 3434 Waialae Ave., Honolulu, and Super Citizen Boutique, 22 S. Pauahi St., Chinatown, 808.599.4333. Image: Vers Hawaii.
Treat your favorite techie to the hilariously awesome Mr. T electronics case from Mi-Cielo. Crafted from soft felt, it's designed to fit most cell phones and mp3 players, and features a handstitched trim, contrasting interior and an adorable Mr. T applique. We pity the fool who doesn't stash this under the tree. Available at Split Obsession, 1450 Ala Moana Blvd. 3rd Flooor, 808.951.8480, and online here. Image credit: Mi-Cielo
Need a hip gift in a hurry? Look no further than Roberta Oaks' new limited-edition men's button-downs. Made from vintage fabrics, the slim cut shirts are available in a variety of fun prints, from retro flowers and nautical maps to funky palm trees. Our fave? The preppy cool Palaka Check shirt, which boasts a bunch of great details, like coconut buttons and a contrasting collar stripe. Available at the Roberta Oaks Showroom, 19 N. Pauahi St., Chinatown, 808.428.1214. Image: Roberta Oaks
