The David Kind Gift Guide
We are so grateful for the support you’ve shown us this year and are so appreciative for those that are shopping small this holiday season. We’ve put together a few of our favorite pieces, from a variety of brands, to share with family and friends (or maybe treat yourself to!) during the holiday season.
A David Kind Gift Card
Eyewear is an extremely personal thing to shop for. But our Home Try-On Experience allows each David Kind customer to have a personalized, private styling session with the help of our incredible opticians. Purchase a gift card online for someone here, and treat him or her to a fresh new pair of frames and bring 2021 into clear view.
One of our favorite publications to read and consult, as a team, is Monocle. Monocle covers international affairs, business, culture and design. From travel guides to business advice, their issues are a constant discovery of what’s new and exciting in the world. Purchase a subscription here for a creative in your life.

Fellow Stagg Electric Kettle
Whether you’re brewing tea or making coffee, the Fellow Stagg Electric Kettle allows you to select the perfect temperature for your drink – and plus, it looks great on your countertop. The streamlined design is great for pour overs with its directional spout, and it’s available in a variety of colors. Shop this perfect addition to any coffee aficionado’s kitchen here.
Over the years, we’ve spent a lot of time in Japan – working with our manufacturers and craftsmen in Sabae. We’ve always admired the Japanese culture, and have tried to bring a few pieces of it home with us. Room Shoes are essential to any home. These Sasawashi Room Shoes are made with a breathable fabric, created by twisting Washi yarns and Kumazasa. They are naturally antibacterial and gentle on the skin. Find these cozy slippers for staying home here.
Norden Big Sur Candle
Norden’s Big Sur Candle captures the founders’ olfactory memories of their time spent along the Central California Coast. With notes of Oakmoss, Pine, Citrus and Wood Smoke, this candle smells like being in a mossy cedar and pine forest with the slight hint of campfire. Handmade just a few miles from our office in San Diego, Norden’s ceramic candles can be reused for years once the candle has burned through. It’s a timeless gift for the adventurer in your life. Shop Norden here.

The Azad Leather Tray is thoughtfully made in India and can serve as the perfect catch-all for all your important pieces – including your David Kind frames. Check out The Citizenry here.
Aesop Resurrection Hand Balm
With all that hand washing, our hands are needing some extra love this year. Aesop’s Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm is available in a perfect travel size vessel and delivers immediate hydration to weary hands. The fresh fragrance is perfect for anyone, with notes of Mandarin Rind, Rosemary Leaf and Cedar Atlas. Shop Aesop online here.
Herman Miller: A Way of Living
We’ve long been fans of Herman Miller’s work, and this incredible collection and anthology is a beautiful ode to design. The book chronicles the company’s long history, and documents notable designers associated with the brand. From Charles and Ray Eames to George Nelson, Herman Miller: A Way of Living tells the complete story of the respected company. You can shop this book from a variety of major retailers, including Design Within Reach.
