Essence of Gifting: A Guide for the Guys

Men are notoriously difficult to buy for. Every year I struggle to figure out what my dad and cousin are getting, and God forbid, I have a boyfriend. Luckily, that’s only happened one Christmas since I’ve had an allowance. I usually dump them around Halloween to avoid this problem. (Kidding!)

I again have dug through tons of ideas to steer you away from snooze-inducing flannel shirts and a new Red Sox cap. Ladies, you’re covered:

  2. The Sharper Image Heated Ice Scraper – $49.99
  3. Personalized Whiskey Barrel – $85.00 – $200.00 (you can also buy this for me, if you’re still searching for my perfect gift)
  4. Huckberry Stealth EDC Kit – $65.00
  5. To Boot New York ‘Stallworth’ Cap Toe Boot – $450.00
