OK, I think men are the hardest to shop for… that’s why I begged Mike to put together a list of fun, cool and manly gifts to give us some ideas!
Without further ado, here’s Mike’s top 10 list of gift ideas for men.
Skully western shirts
Can a shirt get more awesome than this? I don’t think so. Look at the fancy snaps. The amazing embroidery on front and back. The swagger of the guy wearing it. If the man in your life doesn’t think these shirts rock, you got bigger problems that what to buy them for Christmas.
Field Notes books
“I’m not writing it down to remember it later, I’m writing it down to remember it now.” These are terrific little books that fit in your back pocket – perfect for sketching, jotting down notes, writing the next Ode to Joy, and more.
Time to get rid of the butt brick! Koyono offers best slim wallets on the planet. Slimmy is a slim wallet that is easier to use in your front pocket and more secure than traditional billfolds and wallets.
This bag is stylish and solidly built. The outside feels more like denim than nylon, which is a good thing because it feels soft. The padding on the straps is nice and comfortable. Side access to laptops has always been a good thing for me and I love this feature as well.
PillowMob makes puffy photo pillows of your funny face. Upload a photo and they’ll make your head into a pillow and leave it on your doorstep for only $25.
Threadless thought about everything that could make a hoody better, and then they made it themselves! 60% cotton and 40% polyester blend makes for super soft fleece. Additional features include reinforced pocket and zipper stitching and cord control. Plus awesome art prints on front and back.
Klean Kanteen eco-friendly, BPA-free, steel water bottles and pint cups. Always 18/8 stainless steel, reusable, and durable. Designed in Chico, CA.
The best in-ear headphones, these block out environmental noise (but no so much that you can’t hear cars) and let you focus on rich, detailed music. I use these every single day on the train and when I’m out walking around, and they hold up to that wear and tear wonderfully. At around $100, they’re more expensive than some ear buds. But they’re way worth it.
Gelaskins for laptop, phones
GelaSkins are removable vinyl skins for protecting and customizing portable devices. They feature stunning photo-quality graphics ranging from fine art prints to contemporary urban images designed by their growing family of artists from around the globe.
Remote controlled helicopter
These amazing toys bring out the kid in men of all ages. Surprisingly agile, cool looking, and tons of fun. I played with one over Thanksgiving and it had the whole family transfixed (and baby Griffin a little worried). Highly recommended.
