Gift GuidesHoliday Gift Guide ’11: Gifts for Guys

ONE. Tevris Tumblers — Not only do these tumblers come available with almost every pro sports team logo under the sun but no coasters are required! Tervis tumblers have long been known for their condensation-free, break-free features but are also a tasteful way to show off your team spirit. Personalization and add-ons such as handles and travel tops are available with a variety of glass sizes starting at $16 each. And make sure to pick up this American Bar book by Graphic Image to spark his imagination for drinks to enjoy!

TWO. Domestic Aesthetic Reclaimed Wooden Spice Block — For the man who loves to cook, get him this beautiful spice block made of reclaimed wood. Not only will it look gorgeous on your kitchen counter, but will also make seasoning dishes while cooking (for you!) so easy for him. Win-win, right?

THREE. Duluth Backpack — This is a bag so stylish that no one will dare care it a “murse” and any gentle ribbing he gets at the office, will be disguised envy. Like girls, dudes have some amount of stuff to carry around, day to day, whether it be gym clothes or a laptop. This simple rucksack is an upgrade on the company logo-ed nylon bag most guys use to drag their stuff around. The rucksack has a simple flap top, but is polished with its canvas and leather strap contrast. The rectangle shape also makes it versatile to use as a laptop bag. Even guys who aren’t supremely fashion forward won’t reject the shape because it’s familiar and it’s easy to swing on and be on your way.

FOUR. George Gina & Lucy 7.24 Million bag — Men are notoriously hard to buy for, but the 7.24 Million bag from George Gina & Lucy will appeal to almost every man in your life – husband, father, best friend… It’s the perfect size to use as a gym bag or for a weekend trip away, and it comes in six different colors so you can handpick the one you think your recipient would like the best. It’s a little pricey at $259, but carrying it will make any man look instantly more put together and he’ll use it for years, so it’s a worthy investment. He’ll be thanking you over and over!

FIVE. LCN Mancare — There’s “manscaping,” and then there’s enlightenment — in the form of LCN Man Care, a sleek hand-foot-and-nail care line designed especially for men. We recommend taking your special guy to a spa for a massage-infused mani-pedi, then gifting him with a few of these LCN goodies afterward. He’ll be thrilled when he realizes what he’s been missing.

SIX. Custom Shoes at New Balance — Sneakers are one thing that never goes out of style for the guy in your life and you can make the gift all the more special by custom designing a pair yourself! The New Balance 574 will add a retro cool feel to your guy’s closet and you can have full creative control down to the color of the laces or even custom monogramming on the heel. Whether you design the shoe yourself or leave it up to him, this will be one pair of shoes that will have all the more meaning to the recipient.
