Here, We Helped You Christmas Shop for All the Men in Your Life
11 things your husband/father/brother/bestie will appreciate
Some people are the easiest to buy for. Your mom will freak over that nifty garlic press. Your work wife can’t get enough Nars lipstick. And your niece: literally anything Taylor Swift. But the duuudes? Dear God, why are the dudes so problematic? Here’s a little shopping inspiration for the Y chromosomes in your life.
A RECURRING TOILETRY DELIVERY
Heard of Dollar Shave Club? This is kinda like that…except for the whole bathroom (from toothbrushes and toilet paper to shampoo and shaving cream). Just select the chicly designed items you want to arrive regularly.
Morgans (from $4 to $72, every two months)
A WEIRDLY CUTE AX
If toothpaste doesn't blow his skirt up, a hand tool most definitely will.
THE GREATEST SOCKS KNOWN TO MAN
These babies are moisture-wicking, blister-proof, secretly cushioned and made from U.S. wool. Oh, and they come with a lifetime guarantee, so….done?
Farm to Feet ($20)
A FRENCH PRESS TO GO
For the coffee snob who is also always in a hurry, these travel mugs let you brew on the move. Here?s how it works: You add the beans, wait for three minutes and enjoy hot java for hours.
A BOTTLE OF JAPANESE WHISKY
Liquor connoisseurs know that the Japanese are owning it right now, practically winning every whisky award. And wannabe liquor connoisseurs will appreciate the lesson in smoothness from this 12-year single malt you can find at most liquor stores.
Suntory Yamazaki ($89)
A PINEAPPLE COCKTAIL GOBLET
To remind you of that week in Hawaii. And to make embarrassing secret cocktails after everyone leaves your annual Super Bowl party.
Absolut Elyx ($120 for the set)
THE ONLY PAJAMA PANTS HE’LL EVER WEAR AGAIN
A hundred bucks for a pair of sleep pants seems extreme--until they realize they’ve been living a lie and can never imagine a fabric so soft. (That, and those ratty basketball shorts should be burned.)
Sleepy Jones ($128)
A SHIRT FOR HARD-TO-FIT TYPES
Here’s the problem with men: They’ll buy anything. Including those off-the-rack shirts with too-long sleeves or too-bulky midsections. Teach them the ways of proper tailoring with a brand that lets you customize the fit online.
A PHONE-CHARGING SUITCASE
He wants one of those Rimowa hard-shell suitcases…but they’re like a grand. This new luggage line has the same durability and spinning wheels for a fraction of the cost--not to mention, an internal battery and USB ports that can charge his phone and tablet.
FASHION-FORWARD DRESS BOOTS
The rubber sole is durable enough to handle any weather. And the pebbled leather is chic enough to rock with a blazer.
A DETROIT-MADE BIKE
Handcrafted. In America. Booyah.
