He's your rock, your soulmate, your fixer of broken door knobs and reacher of high shelf items. So thank him this holiday season with these gifts that let boys be boys.
For the Dapper Gent: With winter in full force and paisley back in style, arm him for the season (and fashionable parties) with this sleek woven scarf ($88) from iconic brand Fred Perry.
For the Man of Spirit: Compass Box Whiskey's limited-edition Flaming Heart Scotch ($86) is expertly blended and aged in a combination of American and French oak casks for a spicy, smoky profile – and a handsome addition to any liquor cabinet.
For the Techie: Can't keep his paws off his touchscreen – even in freezing temperatures? Spare him frostbite with these smart Echo touch gloves ($28-$78): a special fabric on the fingertips makes them interactive with touch-sensitive digital devices.
For the Modern Businessman: Today's briefcases are anything but clunky. Jack Spade's new York bag ($245) – made from heavy-duty canvas and finished with a durable rubber latex bottom – is the perfect combination of sleek design and rugged usability.
For the Weekend Warrior: Finally a sports watch that's also easy-on-the-eyes. The Soleus 262 ($95) is great for runners of all levels with its lap-tracker, interval timers and highly readable display.
