Gift Guide: For the Practical Man, Who Knows the Line Between Tools and Toys is Not Always Clear

For every one of us with a man in our lives, who always swears he wants nothing for Christmas, but enjoys a thoughtful gift like everyone else.

Steve’s favorite winter shirt happens to be a 90-year-old classic. His first one was a gift from his brother many years ago, and when that one got a little too worn for going out, he bought himself another. This shirt is perfect for all the rugged, outdoorsy chores, a great layer on the coldest days, and has a perfect, classic fit for a low-key night out or in. $55

A good knife sharpener, to combat America’s dullness problem. We really should talk about this more. $26

This hammock has thousands of amazing reviews, and comes with the carabiners and rope he’ll need to get it secured. $36

I know this thing looks ridiculous, but I bought the original version for my dad a few years ago and he loved it so much that he has since upgraded to Version 2.0. I’ve watched it in action - it works without making a mess. And if you’re still skeptical, take a look through some of the reviews on Amazon. $48

Emergency radio with a phone charger. $64
Or make him a disaster starter kit with a lifestraw $20, some good matches $9, and a flashlight $15

A beautiful bluetooth speaker for all the music listening from a long-trusted maker. I can’t stop staring at this Marshall beauty. $295  And we love this portable speaker. $87

This brings back every warm, fuzzy feeling I had as a little girl, watching my Abuelos make stovetop espresso for breakfast before work. And, it just so happens to be Steve’s favorite way to make his morning brew. Old school in the best way, because it really is so good. $27

All the nostalgia he needs on his bookshelf. $104 (Get it here for $91)

A phone case that will protect his phone, and look good anywhere. $13

For a little philosophy with that whiskey. These glasses with words from Abe Lincoln. Set of two, $50

We watched this movie together a few years ago, and we were both gripped. A gritty, true Christmas story from WWI. Joyeux Noel $10

A nice, soft leather weekender bag. He’ll love that the zipper goes down all the way on the sides, giving easy access to everything inside. And a convenient way to sit a couple of folded piles directly inside for packing and unpacking, without having to refold everything. Perfect for air travel, and big enough to fit everything he’ll need for five days or so. $200
