Ideas for the men in your life will obviously be different depending on his likes. The following are some ideas that you can hopefully work off of to really find something your man, dad, son, husband, etc., will love. The men in my life are hockey fans, so the last few years have been hockey filled with signed hockey pucks, signed pictures, signed jerseys, and all the goodies you can wear to support our favorite team (the Montreal Canadiens)! I also once rented out a goat and cow for my dad.
These vintage pieces don't need to be hidden away in a man cave (like some questionable items), they are nice enough to be placed in an office or bedroom as a piece of art. Along with a detailed blueprint is design specs, and highlights of major events. They are printed on museum-grade paper and framed with black wood. $185 to see the parks available.
This won't just look awesome, it does in fact come with whiskey. Instructions are included to help you figure out when to drink, how to cure the barrel, and information on the aging process. Decor that also offers up a drink, that's not a bad deal at all. $85 for 2 L or $110 for 5L
Tree Ranger Beard Oil
I have no clue what works best with a beard since I have never had one, so the Tree Ranger Beard Oil comes highly recommended by the men at Esquire. If you're looking for more items to fit into a gift box, I've purchased from Choice Beard & Co. before (and unless my male friends are all liars, they liked the products). Men tend to like keeping their facial hair looking top notch, so a grooming kit would probably be a great gift for those facial-hair-friendly men in your life.
Whisky is like wine. Everyone is going to have their favorites. The Balvenie Caribbean Cask is one of mine and would be a great gift for any whisky lover in your life. If you're looking for a Scotch, Laphroaig Triple Wood or Quarter Cask are great options, as well as the 15 Year Old Glenfiddich. If you want to add-on, check out these Whisky Stones or this Gunmetal Flask that you can engrave.
Chloe + Isabel Men's 'Jewelry'
Any man that wears a suit will use a tie bar or cuff links at some point. And some of our more casual male counterparts sometimes wear 'men's jewelry'. Chloe + Isabel had so many requests for a men's collection, that they put these pieces together. The pieces in the pictures above are as follows: Enamel Tie Bar $28, Anchor Cuff Links $32, Men's Braided Leather Wrap Bracelet $38, Enamel Tie Bar $28, Enamel Hexagon Cuff Links $32, Modern Faceted Tie Bar $28
I have always loved this 'American Made' company. Based out of Rhode Island, the creator and namesake of these fantastic, nautical designs continues to offer quality products perfect for the boat lovers or prep-dressed men in your life. Listed in the same order as seen above: Captain Fitzgerald Belt $125, The JFK Belt $88, Mixed Signals Tie $75, Geronimo's Legend Tie $75, Adirondack Pine Green Boat Shoes $165, Sailor's Rum Boat Shoes $165
For hardcore fans of any team in the NFL, NHL, NBA, MLB, etc., signed jerseys, pictures, or gear are pretty awesome gifts to receive! My dad has been a lifelong fan of the Montreal Canadiens (the hockey team represented above), so one year I found a bunch of signed hockey pucks from some of the team's greatest players (there have been many!!!) and set them up in a shadow box. My dad definitely had some tears in his eyes (and he is not a very emotional man). I have gone back to this site many times for gifts because they are awesome to work with. Go ahead and give them a call when looking for something, next time they have deals on what you are looking for, they'll be in touch.
I hope you love some of these ideas and keep them in mind for your gift giving needs this year. I have chosen these and given my honest opinion of everything listed here. I have not been paid or received anything from these companies for this post. The only company I am affiliated with is Chloe + Isabel. As one of their merchandisers, I will only make commission on a purchase if 'Victoria Mast' is entered as Merchandiser at checkout.
