Holiday Gift Guide for Warm Weather Enthusiasts

Holiday Gift Guide for Warm Weather Enthusiasts

birkEveryday I open my mail to find a catalog from a mass retailer with the “perfect” holiday gifts for “everyone on your list.” The list includes gifts like Ugg Boots, mittens, scarves… well you get the picture. “Everyone” is limited to #basic Eskimos in winter suffrage and clearly none of these suggested gifts are useful for Miami mamacitas and papi chulos. As I casually flip through these catalogs I wonder “wtf is a pocket warmer?!” Most of us don’t understand a temperature lower than 40-degrees, and we typically don’t travel North for the Winter, which makes me question why retailers mail these unrealistic catalogs to zip codes located in 80-degree December weather. Hopefully, all of you are on Santa’s naught… good list this year because I searched our local shops and retailers to build a gift guide perfect for Miami. So grab a mojito and your sunglasses Miami because this gift guide is just for you.
