I've been thinking long and hard about gifts of late, and I've made a decision: presents should be practical. Buy people things that you know they're going to use. It could just be me, but my favourite gifts are the things that I use day in and day out: Chuck Taylors, Burts Bees lip balm, Hallensteins beige socks. Bags are perfect – we all need a good one. And ever since I got my Baggus I've had a newfound obsession with backpacks (I have an oldfound obsession with duffel bags). Herschel Supply Co packs are canvas and leather, classic, sturdy and good looking. According to Sarah Mason of Area 51 where you'll find them, "I seriously do believe that every single person should own one, if not for the quality, practicality and pure simple aesthetic, then for the price alone." They retail for $115 for the backpacks and $165 for the duffels.
I LIKE YOU!
