Remember when the “murse” was something people made fun of? Not anymore. Soft leather and brass hardware combine for the perfect combination of a rugged ‘murse’ to give your man this holiday season.
There’s probably not a soul on this planet that wouldn’t appreciate a nice set of flasks; however, gifting THREE cylindrical copper ones? You’ll be getting the best girlfriend ever award this year.
Minimalism is all the rage, and your dude wears it well. Instead of giving him a generic wallet, a sleek money band houses all his cash and cards without adding bulk.
If one of your dude’s favorite hobbies is cocktail creation, give him a set of tumblers + stones, to keep his whiskey cool and heart satisfied.
Cedarwood beard oil is essentially the modern-day cologne of our age–it smells good, nourishes your dude’s beard, AND you get to reap the rewards. A win, win if you ask us.
Whether you’re traveling together this year or not, give the gift of a (probably) much-needed waxed travel canvas bag to corral all your dude’s toiletries into one space.
You’ve quickly realized your favorite thing to do together is to play board games. Upgrade his collection with some vintage-inspired game pieces? Yet another gift you can reap some serious benefits from.
Any music-loving person would love a radio docking station for their iPhone, but your (new) dude will appreciate the retro vibes of this unique player.
One of the great things about your guy is his impeccable style. Add to his dapper-like qualities by gifting a skinny chambray tie?
Offer up your killer taste in home decor if your guy is missing that all-important entry essential. (doormat found here.)
So maybe a leather belt isn’t the most exciting gift. However, when it’s made out of English bridle leather, your gift will go from generic to artisanally awesome.
Sometimes a practical gift is better than an impressive one. Give your man a luxurious shave cream this holiday season—he’ll thank you for caring about the little things.
Help your man stay organized AND maintain style—because sacrificing either of them would be a shame. (iPhone wallet found here).
Not all toolboxes are created equal, and while the vintage-inspired red ones are iconic, a modern spin on tool storage is a unique gift that’s both visually appealing and functional.
Artisan bitters are a no-fail gift for the guy who loves to boast about his home bar (and cocktail making skills, of course).
Whether he’s a city dweller or just loves great music, win him over big time with some sweet headphones.
You can never go wrong with giving whiskey glasses for the holidays, but waxed-dipped ones are next-level.
So your new dude already gets massive cool points for being a whiskey connoisseur, but he also wears an apple watch? Can’t even. Get him a marble docking station to house his watch in style.
Add to your man’s serious style by giving him a buffalo plaid pocket square. Perfect for that rugged, lived-in look.
If you’re dating a comedic genius, he’ll appreciate the pun behind these coast-to-coast coasters.
