For the guys in your life, the best friends, the boss, the brother and brother-in-law, and the sig o, I’ve put together this list of classy, well-made gifts with a young point of view.
I bought this watch for my then-boyfriend, now-fiancé two years ago, and it’s one of the best gifts he’s ever gotten. It’s made from American leather in Detroit and Florida, and is a reasonable price for a lifetime watch.
What dude doesn’t appreciate some basic cold-weather gear? These are ethically knit from 100% Italian-spun Merino wool.
These highly nourishing oil-based Beard Tonics combine natural plant oils that promote a healthier looking beard while moisturizing the skin beneath. The sample sizes are good for testing, or traveling with. See which one makes you more inclined to make out with him.
Just as dreamy as your guy, this tie is ethically made from 100% cotton in India, and comes pre-tied.
The bow tie too twee for you? This badass leather jacket is made in Sweden from upcycled and reworked leather.
Precision-turned in the UK from a solid piece of brass, this bottle opener is a satisfying tool with which to open his bottle of beer, especially if he’s really into design – it was crafted by a lighting designer.

Every man needs an oxford or five in his closet. This shirt by Apolis is made of 20s two-ply traditional oxford cloth woven in Brazil, constructed in Choloma, Honduras, by a tailors’ cooperative founded in 1920.
If you share a bathroom with a guy, this gift will benefit you, too, because it makes your whole bathroom smell like the forest after a steamy shower. Juniper Ridge distills down wild-harvested tree pitch and plant sap into essential oils, then combines it with organic oils for a manly and natural bodywash.
For the dandy with a conscience, these pocket squares are handmade from organic cotton in the U.S.A.
Black Marble beard oil is a collaboration with designer Tobias van Schneider, and is made to be the most premium beard oil available, with tamanu oil – prized for its ability to help with the healing process of skin – and natural fragrances: botanical and vanilla notes with a hints of citrus, cedarwood, and ginger.
Portland General Store colognes are inspired by recipes they found from the 1920s and ‘30s, with all-natural ingredients: rganic sugar cane alcohol, CO2, absolutes and essential oils. Each scent is blended by hand in small batches.
