The Man

From winter staples and tech gadgets to a collector car joyride, there’s something for just about every man in your life.

Finding the right gift for every guy in your life—from your beau to your brother to your best friend and beyond–is no small task. Start by knowing your audience. For the style-minded man, a contemporary pair or cufflinks from Alice Made This or day-to-night penny loafers from Bougeotte are probably a safe move. For the outdoorsy dude, get him a goTenna (a simple-yet-chic device that’s made for off-the-grid, peer-to-peer communication), an all-weather watch from Skagen, or the perfect weekender from Paravel and send him packing. And alternatively, if you’ve got a homebody on your hands, nothing screams rest and relaxation like Sleeper pajamas and Capulette slippers. Toss in a Sitko apple pipe or a bottle of Catoctin Creek Roundstone Rye Whiskey and he’s set for a night in. Have a browse below at our female-founded gifts–because there’s something for every man under the mistletoe.
