The UrbanDaddy Miami Holiday Gift Guide

Because the Holidays Are Coming, That’s Why

By Jackie Gutierrez-Jones ·
This is a gift guide.

It’s meant to quell any concerns you may have about finding the right things for the right people. Especially if those people like fish hotels and tiny Hemingway novels hidden in cigarette boxes.

And seeing as how it made so much sense to do so, we named it the UrbanDaddy Miami Holiday Gift Guide.

Let’s do some scrolling, shall we...

Your grandmother runs through olive oil like a grandma. Someone should come up with a way to adopt an olive tree in Italy and have the oil shipped to her house. Oh, good. $79-$290, Nudo Adopt

It takes a certain kind of person to pull this ring off. You’ll think of someone. $225, Double Rhombuses Ring

What you have here is an hour and 50 minutes involving a rose oil footbath, a full-body exfoliation, a massage and a guided singing bowl session. For Mom. Or for you. No, really, you should get your mom something. $310, The Year of the Fire Monkey Treatment at The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Miami, 305-913-8332 for reservations

That friend. You know the one. Every year, it’s “I’m moving to New York and it’s cold there.” Well, here’s their handsome encouragement. $515, Shinola + Golden Bear Men’s MA-1 Wool Bomber Jacket


What Grandpa’s oddly cool collection of miscellany is missing: flip-top cigarette boxes filled with mini versions of classic literature. Like Heart of Darkness and The Metamorphosis. Grandpas, right? $64, Cigarette Box Books

For the person who struggles to find a pair of jeans that fit properly, this Wynwood outfit will take their measurements and work with them to craft the jeans of their dreams. You’re changing lives here. Prices vary, Caveat Bespoke Jeans

Marshall amps are rock-and-roll icons in their own right. This one lets your favorite concert-head stream music wirelessly from any device. So that’s thoughtful. $420, Marshall “Stanmore” Bluetooth Speaker, available at Limited Edition at The Miami Beach Edition

Your brother recently wrapped up his stint at an institution of higher learning—time to elevate his cocktailing acumen. This brass-and-marble bar cart should do it. $499, Felix Bar Cart

This is a fish tank made to look like a hotel. Or a condo. Guess it depends on which side of the causeway Bubbles is calling home these days. $45, Fish Hotel

Jackie Gutierrez-Jones finds unhyphenated names quaint. She believes that croquetas and gin cocktails are suitable precursors to running and hoisting heavy weights over one’s head.
