3. iPhone 6s Plus Wallet Sleeve by Cocones

They’re also our (digital) windows to the world, so it only makes sense that we care for them as best as possible. This is why a phone case is never *not* a good option when it comes to handmade gifts for your boyfriend. A perfect match for both the iPhone 6 Plus and the new iPhone 6s Plus, this sleeve wallet not only provides the bets possible protection, but also has an extra added functionality: it securely carries cards as well.
Two pockets are up for the job: one is dedicated to less frequently used cards, like IDs or the driving license, while the other is meant for the ones which are used on a daily basis, like bank cards or gym passes.
As for the materials? Wool felt and vegetable tanned Italian leather – together, they’re a hardworking and durable couple. Just like you two. ;)

This straight razor is a good introduction to traditional wet shaving and will deliver a very smooth and close shave – not to mention, there’ll be no more discarded cartridges to further pollute the environment.
Along with it comes a “Man Card” with a leather strop on one side, which can be used to prepare the blade. Made of bamboo and English bridal leather, it’ll help keep the blade sharp. You can pick between a standard blade (which is sharp, but might take a little honing to become suitable for shaving) or a shave-ready one for an extra fee. Yes, and the shop also offers free engraving. It really doesn’t get any better than this!
