Reading the second part of a Gift Guide without reading the first is like watching the sequel to movie without having seen the first, its just wrong. Go check out the Summer Fun Gift Guide – Part I
, if you haven’t already! ;)
We’re sure by now that you’re knee deep in Summer activities, so we won’t keep you around for longer than we did for Part I. Perhaps you’ve just gotten back from vacation, are about to leave or have just been hittin’ the beach during your breaks whenever possible. However Summer works out for you, we know that it can be quite the season for change, being in between school years, semesters and sometimes new jobs or homes. Let’s make ourselves feel awesome with awesome Summery goods from handmade, local and indie artists!
Summer in the Bay is kinda funny, because you never know when its going to actually get hot. That’s when lightweight tees, perfect for layering when necessary, really come in handy. Headline Shirts‘ trademark Vintage Blend is a brilliant combination of materials that creates the softest tee on the market; plus, they’re all printed with fun designs in San Francisco! If you’re more sure about your day’s dress code and are looking to go sleeveless, we’d recommend checking out some of the latest Tanks by San Francycle. If you’re into bikes, being a Californian and stayin’ cool, these guys are for you!
Stay hydrated out there everybody! You might want to pickup a new USA-made, recycled metal Water Bottle by Liberty Bottleworks, they’re pretty awesome and are guaranteed spill-less when closed with their patented “click-cap” design. For the days or nights that you’re kicking back at home, we’d recommend popping open a cold one on a Wall-Mounted Bottle Opener by FluffyCo and pouring it into a sandblasted Pint Glass by Bread & Badger. That’s a combination sure to stand the test of time.
If home is where the heart is, then shouldn’t it adjust to the times like you do? Freshen up your space with some seasonal artwork by 3 Fish Studios and Le Petit Elefant. The I Love You California series has so many different designs to choose from, you could put up a new one every month if you wanted to! Or if you’re planning on having visitors during your Summer, the guest room is sure to brighten up just as well with any number of the pieces we have at the Mouse.
Colorize your days out with super cute laser-cut Earrings by Oakland-based [un]possible cuts, we’ve got some new designs in intended for Summer Fun! And while you’re at it, hold back that luscious lox with one of many colorfully handmade Fabric Headbands by Cookie & the Dude. You can’t show off your new earrings with your hair blowing all over the place!
However you spend the rest of your Summer, know the heat is coming and we’re prepared for it with all kinds of awesome new products and fan favorites from all the best local & indie artists. Happy Summer, and see you at the Mouse!!
