Staying within your budget is important when holiday shopping, but it’s easy to get carried away. If you or a guy in your life isn’t necessarily fashionable, the following items will make this holiday memorable without breaking the bank.
SAXX Ultra Boxer Fly – $29.95
The life of men’s underwear is often short, but we won’t ask why. SAXX Underwear Co. has made every effort to make long-lasting boxers for men of all shapes and sizes. These Ultra Boxer Flys are made of flexible viscose fabric and are virtually unnoticeable when worn.
TrackR Bravo – $29.99
If you or the man in your life is notorious for misplacing his cell phone or keys, then this is the holiday gadget you need. TrackR Bravo is small enough to fit inside a wallet and clip onto a keychain, making sure you don’t spend 15 minutes digging up the sofa for your belongings.
DraftTop – $45.00
There are certain things in life that make us say, “I need that.” DraftTop is one of those things. If you need a gift for a casual beer drinker or craft connoisseur, this handy piece of engineering can turn any aluminum can into a draft delight (no sharp edges either!).
Trafalgar Hawthorne Money Clip Wallet – $53
Gone are the days of overstuffed wallets that barely close. For a simple yet sophisticated piece of craftsmanship, steer your gift-giving mind toward the Trafalgar money clip wallet – a perfect hybrid that keeps cards and cash safe and sound.
Cole Haan Handsewn Deerskin Leather Gloves – $59.95
Empathetic holiday shopping goes a long way, especially when you consider the harsh winter weather. These Cole Haan gloves can make a huge difference for men who grab a hold of an ice-cold steering wheel first thing in the morning.
John Varvatos Artisan Cologne – $80
Cologne is a unique accessory in that it can completely change one’s aura. A man’s scent ties his outfit together, and few come close to John Varvatos Artisan. With an overall aquatic tone and firm spice notes, Artisan not only leaves you smelling great all day, but it transcends generations.
