Soak it in. The Giants. Maybe you snagged a souvenir ball, but these cufflinks, made from the MLB Authenticated game-used balls from one of the five games, would make the ultimate relic. Note: not recommended for having a catch.
The UrbanDaddy SF Holiday Gift Guide
In between trips to Tahoe and eggnog drinking competitions, you’re going to have to finish up your holiday shopping. So, we’ve put together a list to make easy work of the gift-selection process. Well, this, and a hot toddy.
Locally Produced Spirits at Cask
Drinking limoncello in Capri and pisco at Machu Picchu sounds great right now, but we need you to focus closer to home. Perhaps by honing in on drinking limoncello distilled in Sonoma or the only SF-based pisco in town. Cask has them both—and so happens to offer engraving services. Capri will always be there.
The good people at Bar Bambino are packing Dolcetto-encrusted cheeses, salami made with black truffles, salami bursting with Barolo, locally made cocoa nibs and a plethora of other highly edible nuggets into gift boxes. Then it’s up to you to add a few bottles of wine. May we suggest carrying it from the bottom.
Reversible Bow Ties from The Common
Pierrepont Hicks—the cult, limited production, made-in-New York neckwear company—is known for its reversible bows, among other things. So allow us to suggest the understated Camper or the flashier Field bow tie. They’re self-tying, which means the opposite of how it sounds.
This desktop cigar cutter, crafted by artisans going on four generations in the Tuscan countryside, might look pretty menacing. But the ultra-sharp blade that comes down like a guillotine has a useful purpose: to ensure a smooth, straight cut. All this means you’ll be able to blow smoke rings that’ll make the Governator jealous.
Your productivity is at an all-time high, but it’s always good to let off some steam from time to time. By steam, we mean tiny ping-pong. That’s where this portable set with a suction-cup net comes in. Nothing gets the ideas flowing like a round of table tennis.
