Feather Ornaments 3. Merry Christmas Garland & Card 4. Woodland Animal Finger Puppet Ornaments  5. Polka Wrapping Paper 6. Japanese Paper Balloon Decoration Set 7. Rifle Paper Gift Tags 8.

Chemex Coffeemaker

This one’s..

Chemex Coffeemaker, $45

Chemex Coffeemaker, $45

for my dad. He’s a coffee guy and recently traded in his fancy high tech coffee maker for one of these old school Chemex Coffeemakers.  He’s convinced it brews the perfect cup of coffee in 4 minutes flat, and according to the Old Faithful Shop’s product description, he might be right.  It was made in 1939 by a famous inventor named Peter Schlumbohm out of heatproof borosilicate glass (with a wooden handle). They are fairly hard to come by, I found this one online at Old Faithful Shop, which makes sense seeing as the Vancouver based shop specializes in well-made, everyday products that when possible are hand-crafted – much like the Chemex Coffeemaker. It serves a purpose and is sure to outlive that teched out machine sitting on your kitchen counter.

Wenger Utility Pocket-Knife

Maybe not..

Wenger Utility Pocket Knife

Wenger Utility Pocket-Knife

just for guys, but surely a handy thing to have. The Wenger Utility Pocket-Knife pretty much has everything you need – especially the corkscrew. It reminds me of something my pops would carry, except with a modern edge. You can find this and a ton of other great quality items at one of my online favorites, Old Faithful Shop.
