10 Gifts for Him

He May Not Know He Wants These, but He Does

By Geoff Rynex ·
It’s high time he got a gift. Why? Because it’s the holidays, and everyone gets gifts right now. Yours—yours should be the best gift he gets. And that’s where we come in, because we care, and we want him to own something like a hammer-screwdriver combination tool that’s so handsome, it could be on a mantelpiece. That’s just one of the many things you’ll find here:

It’s a hammer. It’s a screwdriver. It’s really good-looking. $22, Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co.

This is called the clothes valet, and it’s like a folding closet, but one that has every kind of apparatus that can hold any kind of piece of clothing, and it’s art. $10,000-$15,000, Artsy

When a man loves a dog, that dog should be immortalized in the form of a pocket square. Bespoke pocket squares are basically the perfect solution. $600, Turnbull & Asser

Well, The Wealth of Nations sure is an important book. Here’s a first edition, which, by the way, was printed one year after the Declaration of Independence. $70,000-$100,000, Doyle

There are many ways to create a fire in the wild when necessary. Twelve of them are in this tiny kit. $128, Best Made Co.

A pashmina maharaja’s robe, made on a loom. There are only 18 in the world. Perfect for picking up the Sunday Times. $3,200, VK Nagrani

We’re sure your favorite man’s bar set is just fine. Perfectly adequate. But is it 24K-gold-plated adequate? The question begs asking. $26-$288, Trnk

Like a perfect straight-razor shave you do to yourself, without all the death. $400, OneBlade

Just trust us, he’ll like this. $5, We Took to the Woods

A book from a man who loves cocktails on the history of the modern cocktail movement. If your giftee drinks mixed drinks, and let’s hope he does, he ought to know why he drinks good ones these days instead of Fuzzy Navels. We actually dug into this a bit. $20, Amazon
