Our Founders Michael’s Holiday Picks!

Michael here, I’m one of the founders here at Maptote! I work on everything from design direction to visiting our Brooklyn factories weekly to pick up our products, and good ole admin work. This guide is filled with items that I am selfishly putting out in the ether with hopes someone from my family will see this guide 😉 I go for everything from modern classic design like this Tivoli Radio to my new love of fishing with this Anchor doormat from Gum Tree.  Nostalgic for 90’s indie music, I look forward to getting into this book from Sub-Pop. We collaborated with our friends from Winter Water Factory on a baby and kids line, so I was stoked when they added some adult sweats. I love my adopted home city of NYC so can’t wait to show off my WWF x Maptote sweatshirt.  My desktop is so cluttered and for whatever reason I can never find my stapler and was excited to find that Social Type has one that will definitely not get lost and up the game for my desk. Last but not least I am not looking forward to the cold dark winter and need to get my caffeine fix from my favorite NYC staple Pearl River Mart

Our Graphic Designer’s Holiday Picks!

I’m Kelsey, the graphic designer here at Maptote! I love gift giving, but maybe enjoy gift wrapping even more. Red Cap Cards does the coolest artist collaborations and my pick this year is Nolan Pelletier’s Peace, Love & Joy wrapping paper! The Maptote Small Tray is my go to for stocking stuffers, along with the Wary Meyers Coco Nuit Candle – it’s the perfect earthy, suntan oil smell and bound to help with the winter blues. I also love giving food gifts – I think this Soft Pretzel Kit from my neighborhood gift shop Peace & Riot would be so cute paired with our NYC Foodie Slim Pouch

1)  Nolan Pelletier Gift Wrap – Red Cap Cards

2)  Maptote Small Tray 

3) Wary Meyers Coco Nuit Candle
