FLAMINGO PRINT ISSUES, $10–$15
Keep your whiskey cold and your cigar secured with this double-duty rocks glass. Its built-in stogie rest lets you sip and smoke in style. It should come as no surprise that its novel design is the brainchild of Corkcicle, the Orlando-based company whose mission is to keep beverages cool through their innovative approach to drinkware, barware and beyond.
CIGAR GLASS, $24.95
Hell House American Whiskey puts rock and roll into a rocks glass. Current front man Johnny Van Zant (brother of the late Ronnie Van Zant) of Jacksonville’s Lynyrd Skynyrd brought this spirit to life, and its name pays homage to the cabin where the original band members spent their early days writing and playing the songs that eventually took the world by storm. Its rich honey-amber hue paired with its sweet-and-spicy taste makes it a whiskey bottle that deserves a spot on your bar cart. Bottoms up!
AMERICAN WHISKEY, $49.99
No matter if you’re a leisurely beach-booze-cruise bicyclist or more of an adrenaline-seeking trail junkie, St. Augustine’s ICEMULE Cooler’s latest creation has your thirst covered. The Impulse is a soft cooler that can be secured to your handlebars or simply slung over your shoulder. It can hold up to three cans, keeping them cold for the duration of your ride.
IMPULSE IN DEVOE 3.0, $79.96
Florida leisure gear has never looked cooler thanks to LaFavre’s refreshing take on headgear and apparel. The Jacksonville Beach lifestyle brand’s modern approach to design has led to partnerships with the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars, the University of Florida and beyond. Even if you don’t have a team, represent your home state with an orange blossom-adorned hat.
If getting more birdies is at the top of your holiday wish list, then you can’t go wrong with a training mat from Wellputt. The Miami company specializes in pro-level putting mats that are designed to sharpen your game, and they’re approved by Cameron McCormick (Jordan Spieth’s teacher and the PGA’s 2015 Teacher of the Year) along with other top golf coaches. Wellputt also has a training app that you can use with your mat that includes three 18-hole courses and over 50 exercises to lower your score the next time you hit the green.
13FT PUTTING MAT, $179
Necklace and Earrings
While growing up in Jacksonville, sisters Danielle and Jodie loved dressing up in their mother’s vintage pieces and crafting jewelry using their father’s medical tools. Fast forward to today and the duo is now behind DANNIJO, the wildly popular and oh-so-colorful fashion brand known for statement jewels, resort leisure ready-to-wear and tie-dye silk slips worn by A-listers and style-savvy Floridians alike.
NATALIE NECKLACE, $370, ELLE EARRINGS, $170
ASHLEY WOODSON BAILEY
Jacksonville artist Ashley Woodson Bailey is known for her stunning floral portraits that she then turns into wallpaper, fabrics and wall art. Her first foray into giftable home goods are these acrylic trays that come in three different sizes. From serving up cocktails to using as a catchall on your coffee table to holding your perfume collection, their versatile design makes them a present that’s as pretty as it is functional.
ASHLEY WOODSON BAILEY TRAY, FROM $192
Sunday Bag and Pouch
Make a splash with these water-resistance beach bags, crossbody pouches and sunny tote bags. This Fernandina Beach-based, family-owned company made their bags with Florida living in mind, making them with bright colors, floral patterns, woven straps and waterproof material. As Marloru owner Christina King says, "If your bag gets wet, your stuff stays dry."
STAY WILD SUNDAY BAG, $64 AND STAY WILD SMALL POUCH, $28
VIVRE CANVAS COUTURE
Hand-Painted Canvas Bag
Meet the bespoke brand out of Stuart whose apparel and accessories are true works of art. From gowns to bow ties to handbags, nearly everything in Vivre Canvas Couture’s line is made from—you guessed it—hand-painted canvas. While there are a variety of styles, ranging from tropical florals to Florida-centric prints (we personally love the Palm Beach Polo Pony clutch), one of the most noteworthy aspects of the brand is that you can create a custom piece, working with the Vivre team to make your idea a reality—and give a gift that’ll truly wow.
PALM BEACH POLO PONY, $595
TRESSA LAVINIA LINZY DESIGNS
Embroidered Shrimp Cocktail Napkins
Cocktail shrimp have never looked chicer than they have on these embroidered linen cocktail napkins. They’re one of the many home accessories dreamed up by Tressa Lavinia Linzy Designs.
