WISHLIST THIS: WITH DANIELLE BASKIN, BELLE HELMETS
To kick off our month-long series of holiday-centric gift giving (and getting) posts, we’re rounding up some high-art headgear with Belle Helmets own Danielle Baskin…
DANIELLE’S PICKS FOR GIFTING
DB: My suggestion is to ask the person you’re getting it for what they would want — it’s a big decision if they’re going to be wearing it every day! But… these are some of my favorite ones, and most popular sellers. And they’re all great for everyday use (the paint lasts) or for the occasional bike ride — So really anyone who is a cyclist in any capacity:
DANIELLE’S PERSONAL PICKS
DB: I occasionally wear prototypes or old samples I have lying around my apartment, but I haven’t made a new helmet for myself in a long time — there’s lots of other heads out there to protect!
I have, however, been scheming to paint a winter helmet for myself (using a ski helmet as a bike helmet), as I’m determined to bike year round. The design will be a geometric ‘knit’ pattern… sort of like a winter hat, with reindeer and all that. I’ll probably paint it after the holiday rush is over.
OUR BELLE PICKS
Admittedly, our Belle wishlist changes (more like, grows) on the regular — There’s just not enough lifetime for all the vibes we want to rock. For the sake of holiday wish listing, we’ve narrowed down our latest picks (and it seems like we’re into storms, tropics, and nautical overtones these days…)
