For All your Men
It’s clearly the gift-giving, event gathering season. What’s unclear is what to get for all the men in your life! Dads, brothers, friends, boyfriends, husbands–all of them. While nailing the ultimate gift can seem like a stressful undertaking, this handy little guide will solve all confusion. From cool backpacks to funky printed Happy Socks,
to fun sneakers and perfect books, this should have you covered from A-Z. If someone still does not have a Nespresso machine at this day and age of their lives, please help them out. If not, the Comme de Garçons Play collection is always a great way to show some extra love, and cookbooks (the latest from Ottolenghi is a serious hit, as is the new Tacos book by Chef Alex Stupak) are an easy-pleaser for a food lover.
All things liquor are no-brainers. For the men who like their drinks neat (but cold), the whiskey wedge is a great little hack to ensure drinks are ice-cold but not watery. The Carry On Cocktail kits are an awesome gift-on-the-go kind of thing, so anyone can enjoy their cocktail of choice at all times. Seriously, just add liquor and you’re good to go.
