DFuss - Best of Etsy 2016

I'm probably in the minority of females who take wood identification pretty seriously.  Not like knowing the difference between wood and plastic, but more like knowing the finer intricacies between African Blackwood and Bacote. Helping to keep track of inventory for Burl & Badger the last few years has made me into a semi-expert on all things hardwood.  Which brings me to today's shop.......

Every year in this series I try really hard to discover a few potential manly gift options, and today's shop is one of the best. DFuss is a Lynchburg-local designer of wooden tie clips and cufflinks.  

They offer so many different styles and shapes that can appeal to every guy from the lawyer type to your classic hipster.

I love the option of monogramming on this African Ebony tie clip.....

And how stately are these Texas mesquite wood rectangular cufflinks?  {See what I did there?}

If you've got more of a Biblical scholar on your hands, there are always the Bethleham Olivewood square cufflinks - I LOVE the grain on these.

And clearly the hipster in your life needs this glasses engraved clip to accent their favorite skinny tie.  Because why not?

The most unique option I found in the shop was this barnwood reclaimed tie clip.  I'm pretty sure Joanna & Chip Gaines would give this their stamp of approval.

My main man gives DFuss's Etsy shop two thumbs up from a guys perspective - be sure to check out the selection that might be just right for a special dude in your life!
