As Christmas draws near, HerKentucky is committed to helping you find the best, most unique presents for everyone on your list. Today, we want to share with you a great gift for the guy in your life, especially if he's a lumbersexual, a hipster, or a competitive whisker-grower.
Of course, I'm kidding just a little, but the mustache cup is an often forgotten piece of history. Unless you attended Transylvania University, that is. My alma mater just happens to boast a collection of over 300 Victorian Era mugs and teacups that feature little guards to keep the drinker's mustache safe. And, Transy's art department may have just created the world's largest mustache cup.
Professors Kurt Gohde and Kremena Todorova have built what could be the world’s largest mustache cup. (They're working on getting it recognized by Guinness World Records.) See it at Christ Church Cathedral during Friday's Gallery Hop along with other works by #Transy professors, students and alumni.
Why not give the sophisticated gentleman in your life a mustache mug of his own?
Bucardo recently sent me (well, really, my beau) a mustache mug to review. Bucardo has and partnered with the global men's health movement of Movember to help draw attention to men's health issues. Bucardo will donate $5 from every mug sold now until Dec 31st. What a great way to let the guy in your life know that you're thinking of his immediate comfort as well as his long-term health!
I was a huge fan of the Nashville-based duo The Civil Wars. I LOVED the way Joy Willams' haunting, ethereal voice soared opposite John Paul White's soulful sound. Like a lot of Civil Wars fans, I wasn't quite sure what to expect of Joy's post-Civil Wars solo album. Of course, when One2One Network offered me the opportunity to review the album, I was thrilled to give it an early listen.
Williams' solo album, Venus, tells a beautiful, uplifting story of modern womanhood. Themes of mothering, relationships, and strength abound. The songs don't have the dreamy, old-time feel of Civil Wars tunes; rather, they're often straightforward tales of love, loss, or celebration. "Sweet Love of Mine" will resonate with mothers or anyone else who has a very special child in their life. "Woman (Oh Mama)" is beautifully celebratory, and if "Before I Sleep" hasn't already been slated for a movie soundtrack, it should be soon! Of course, for Civil Wars die-hards, it's easy to interpret a few songs as being about the band's breakup; perhaps "One Day I Will" is just that, or maybe it's about the end of another type of relationship. That's the beauty of Venus; many of these songs go beyond Joy's own experiences and touch something universal in the listener.
