Their 6 sampler set makes a great gift for someone who loves to unwind with delicious, hand-crafted teas. 

5. AUTHENTICITY 50 SHEET SET

We might be biased but we feel like a luxurious sheet setmade 100% in America is quite the romantic gift! Everyone needs new sheets - especially a premium A50 set. Give your loved one the gift of sleep this Valentine's Day! Order this week to ensure on-time delivery. "So good I even bought my parents some. What do you buy people that already have everything?

Does that water-loving man in your life need a swimwear upgrade? Spring is around the corner, and warmer weather will soon be here.

Thanks for the comment Grace! You’re right, Shinola would have been a great idea for this blog post! I think we’ll be able to work them in in the future. :)
We actually featured American Giant in our Holiday Gift Guide. We’re big fans, own their hoodies and I’m wearing one of their tee shirts as I type this. Great company. Great product.

Keep those ideas coming, please!
