We don’t do gift guides here on Design Milk because, well, everyone does them. We like to be different. So we decided to go in another direction this year. Since our staff is getting larger, we thought it would be fun to ask each person what was on their wishlist this holiday season. So, every day for next 2 weeks we’ll feature a staff wishlist. First up is Joel, whose house and clock/chair collection are on MY wishlist…

Not that I can get everything on this list and I either have to decide to keep my current car and buy the bike or use the money to upgrade my car…

1. Ducati Monster: The original cafe racer. You can’t beat the minimalistic construction and the attention to detail.

2. TAG gear ranger hoodie v5: when sh*t hits the fan. I will fill all the pockets with stuff and I can see my iPhone on the upper sleeve pocket.

3. Cherner side chair: I can’t be a true chairwhore if I don’t add this chair to the collection. Even if I don’t have space.

4. AP Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph: What can I say… I’m graduating from Panerai (it’s been a great time, Panerai, but we have to talk…) I even ventured into the world of IWC but nothing has a pull like AP. How can I say no: Forged carbon fiber case, ceramic bezel and speed yellow accents that match my car!

5. John Varvatos combat boots (you can see a trend in my selection!) I don’t know if I can justify the price tag on these… I can always go to an Army Supply store and buy a 40 year old vintage pair for $60 with real patina and distress marks.
