A new month, a new batch of Devolve goods hand selected by our local style aficionados. For November we’ve got Chana, longtime Raleigh-ite and founder of Raleigh What’s Up, who’s put together a gift list for all the special people in her life.
First up, Chana’s girlfriends will get the gift of first-class cocktailery with the Carry On Cocktail Kit – Moscow Mule. It’s includes all the mixers and tools you need to make an awesome drink at any altitude. Add mini-bottle vodka to the spicy, small-batch ginger syrup. Stir. Sip. Repeat.
For Chana’s guyfriends: tuneage. LSTN Troubadour Headphones in zebra wood blend badass sound with a unique look. Each pair has its own grain pattern and the same clean, full acoustics, so her friends’ earphones are cool even when their dancing isn’t. And as if Troubadours couldn’t get any cooler, for every pair sold, LSTN helps provide hearing aids to a person in need through the Starkey Hearing Foundation.
Mmm, beer. Or water. Whatever you put in them, these salt-glazed ceramic Izola steins are a great cool gift for Chana’s beer-loving brother-in-law.
For Chana’s brother the mechanic, how about something no frills? This Devolve t-shirt is perfect with the comfort and durability he needs when he’s under the hood or grabbing a beer afterwards.
When it comes to Chana’s teenage daughters, she’s going for the skating goods. First up it’s these DVS Aversa shoes, built for comfort and non-slip riding around Raleigh. And for something to put them on, she’s picked out this Artco long board, which is perfect school transportation on those mild North Carolina fall days.
Time for the hubby, who Chana is starting off with a classic Pendleton plaid shirt. Pendleton does plaid better than anyone, using virgin wool, which they’ve sourced from their family-run Oregon farm for the last 100 years. It’s the perfect mix of beauty and beast.
You want a real shave? Do it the old fashioned way. With this in mind, Chana’s picked out this Forge & Foundry’s badger hair shaving brush for her husband. And to keep the hygiene up to snuff, she’s also selecting Damn Handsome Beer Soap, fortified with barley, hops, malt, and enough vitamins and minerals to make a healthy breakfast jealous. These are actual beer grains sourced from craft breweries, so he can exfoliate with natural ingredients that would otherwise go to waste.
Because there are stockings to stuff, Chana also likes the Devolve gift card. With gift cards in any denomination, everyone on her list can be ready to skate, ride, bike, hike, drink and chill.
For the upcoming chilly winter nights, Chana will be giving her mom and dad the Woolrich Appalachian Trail Jacquard blanket. Woven in Woolrich’s own mill, this soft-wool blanket combines a classic look with rugged design for whatever adventures await them.
Chana has picked out a couple of anything-but-average candles for her sisters. The Izola sandlewood candle is made from 100% vegetable wax and 0% annoying scent. They use recycled glass containers and are made right here in the US. Not to be outdone, she’s also selected this Great Bear Wax Co. candle in Campfire scent, which brings back all your great campfire memories in an all-natural soy wax kind of way.
Finally, you have to give yourself a little pat on the back for all that shopping, so Chana is gifting herself the canvas Sons of Trade tote. It’s a great carry-on bag for those holiday travels, and it’s water resistant for snow, rain, hail, or whatever the weather has in store.
