It ’tis the time of the year for cold weather and hot cocoa, that white stuff people call snow, and the dreaded holiday shopping season. The internet has transformed how we shop for ourselves and loved ones during the Christmas season, and while the move has been swift and the effect beginning to be noticed in the closure of department stores all over the world, it allows the ability to shop for unique products from all over the world that otherwise would not be possible to buy locally.
The chill has descended upon many of us in the northern areas of the world, and with it the snow is falling in great sheets of white crystal, and so it’s beginning to feel a lot like the holidays. But the holiday season have turned into a nightmare. Did that last sentence catch you off guard? Well, it’s true. When many families must save all year to afford a gift giving extravaganza or choose going in debt for much of the new year to be able to pull off Christmas, then the holiday is becoming more stressful than it should. Big business and marketing companies have a heyday making people think that it’s all about the gifts…
Subscription services have become a popular style of commerce since online shopping has taken off, and now there’s even meat of the month, beer clubs, record of the month subscriptions and the list goes on. I’ve worked with a few of these services and there is something fun that comes with a mystery package that comes every month. You look forward to it every month and when the package comes, you rip it open before anything else in your mail.
Wohven has accomplished the status as one of the leading monthly subscription t-shirt services, because they specialize in dynamic, minimalist shirt designs that are unique each month, and are typically designed with nature and trees, or elements like water and fire, and animals like buffalo or something as simple as a feather. Each month a different artist showcases their work through Wohven’s many services, where they also offer creative boxers and socks, too.
The best thing about New Zealand is that there are so many off-the-beaten-track places to explore. Divert off SH1 and you’ll find sights not seen anywhere else in the world, right in our own backyard.
Finding Belonging in Nature, Yet Respecting Her Enough to Come Prepared: featuring the Striker by Winkler Knives
When nature calls, you must go. That sums up my life in six short words. I grew up living on a lake, far from the mountains, and not near enough to forests that had yet to be spoiled by man, yet something was never quite right. I always felt like I was searching for a place to belong. I did the 9 to 5, I owned my own business and had done well for myself early on, yet I had never found happiness. Always searching. Then I began to travel, I toured the cities in lands from where my ancestors had come from, and yet, something in me craved for more, desired something real. It wasn’t until I encountered the unspoiled forests and mountains of Colorado and Wyoming for me to feel a deep connection and a power, and belonging like nowhere else prior.
