Today's gift guide is the opposite of Monday's round-up: a collection of gifts for women shopping for the men in their lives. I'm perhaps not the expert here, but I have a lot of guy friends and a huge practical streak that keeps me from suggesting luxury tee shirts or yet another $40 bottle opener for a person who happily uses one he got for free in college and always will.
I've tried to include a variety of price ranges and items to appeal to young city guys or even my own southern cowboy dad:
Clockwise from top left:
Plastic Flask - Will not set off metal detectors at sporting events. Under $8. Enough said.
Company K- This book is an amazing account of World War I that I enjoyed reading myself, and the men I've convinced to read it gave it their stamp of approval
Eddie Bauer Jacket - So classic, wear-it-forever style. A bit of an investment, but worth it if your guy will wear it often.
Logitech Harmony Remote - So wonderful, I included it last year too! This universal remote combines up to 8 devices into one and makes a 5-step Blu-ray watching procedure as easy as pressing the "watch a movie" button.
Diesel Duffel Bag - I think every guy needs a proper duffel bag that will keep him looking respectable in airports and in front of your family and friends.
Wood Grain iPhone Case - I love the look of this rubber case from J.Crew, and it will work as well for dad as for your brother
Breaking Bad Blu-Ray - Best show ever. If your guy hasn't gotten hooked yet, it's time.
Craft Beer of the Month Club - $38 per month for 12 craft beers from indie breweries across the country
What are your go-to gifts for the men in your life?
