If you are or are shopping for one of those flannel-wearing fellows with the Gandalf beard who built his own shelter and constantly smells like Scotch and firewood, you’ve come to the right place. Here are some solid gift options that you can wrap in ribbon and place under the tree he foraged his own goddamned self.
Liquid Body Flask ($60): Gin. Whiskey. Moonshine. Fill this baby up with your poison of choice and sneak it in virtually anywhere! The gift of being your own bartender is the gift that keeps on giving. Can you make it a double? You bet your ass you can.
The Last Stop ($45): The Last Stop: Vanishing Rest Stops of the American Roadside documents author Ryann Ford’s road trips across the US, encapsulating the fleeting nostalgia of the American rest stop. The desolate landscapes are haunting but provide a strange sense of serenity.
Hestra Deerskin Gloves ($110): Don’t let the cold stop you from chopping logs and scaling mountains. Hestra’s got your mitts covered with a winning combination of naturally weatherproof deerskin and super soft wool tricot.
All Natural Boot Oil ($18): Give the manly man’s rugged lugs a little love with this all-natural boot oil. It’s a proprietary blend of pine pitch and mink oil specifically created to condition oil-tanned leathers for years of adventuring.
Anchor Christmas Ale ($14): Warm up with this limited-edition brew. Smooth and velvety, the perfect blend of yuletide boasts aromas of fruitcake, molasses and freshly cut wood.
Gränsfors Outdoor Axe ($185): You can forget that Swiss army knife because the manly man will not be satisfied with anything less than a full-blown axe. This multipurpose Swedish make can be used for splitting wood, limbing or as a knife in a pinch.
Mahabis Slippers ($100): Men are keenly aware of their gross hobbit feet and most prefer to keep them covered. They will also undoubtedly wear their slippers out of the confines of their home to, say, fetch the newspaper or take out the bin. Mahabis understands and therefore provides hard soles guys can slip on without having to bend over.
Apolis Chore Jacket ($278): Men always be makin’ and fixin’ and doin’ shit—and there is no better way to do it in style than with the Apolis Chore Jacket. The wardrobe staple is crafted in LA with ample pocket space for all of his bits and bobs.
