Holiday Gift Guide – For Your Brothers or Boyfriends

Yesterday, I shared with you some of gifts you could give ladies this Christmas. Now, I thought I’d turn my attention to the men in your life. Here’s a list of items that I think would make the perfect gift for your brothers or boyfriends (and husbands, of course).

Above: Mod Tablet 3
For the jetsetter man in your life that likes to keep things organized, look to the Mod Tablet 3. The magnetic modular case was built to solve the needs of creative professionals. It has 10 pockets for a tablet, phone, cards, and currency and 5 slots for cords, pens, pencils, notebook, and in-ear headphones. If that’s not enough, it’s outside is a Tuscan veg-tanned leather.
This is Ground $349


Men’s Leather Bomber Jacket
A leather jacket doesn’t have to break the bank. This one, by DSTLD, is classic and streamlined. Made from buttery soft broken-in leather, the jacket is designed to feel like a longtime favorite from day one, and only improves with time and wear.
DSTLD $320


Mens’s Classic Full Zip Hoodie
It’s the hoodie that launched American Giant to fame. Soft and comfortable, your boyfriend will never want to take it off.
American Giant $89


Slim Classic Zip-pocket Sweatpant
Sweatpants don’t have to look slouchy. These pants, from J.Crew, feature a tapered leg that creates a slim, tailored silhouette. Good for going out or staying in.
J. Crew $69.50


Everyday Backpack
If you’re looking for the ultimate backpack to haul all of your gear look no further. The Everyday Backpack by Peak Design was created by a team of designers, engineers, and photographers to meet the needs of creative and adventurous people. It can hold an unbelievable amount of stuff including your camera gear or laptop. (I have the Everyday Tote and I love it.)
Peak Design $259.95


The Classic, Gunmetal or Tan
If your man is a minimalist, he’ll appreciate the classic design of this watch. Inspired by the clean lines of the Oslo Opera House, this watch has a two-layer dial and a subtle domed glass. It’s an elegant, high-quality watch with premium components, including a Swiss movement and Italian leather straps.
Linjer $249

Skybuds are truly wireless earbuds that charge and store in the Skydock. I love the classic and clean look of these.

The Carry-On
Luggage shouldn’t be heavy or bulky. That’s why the Carry-On would be your perfect travel companion. It’s unbreakable, thoughtfully designed, and guaranteed for life. Inside there are two compartments, one designed for clothes, the other for shoes, toiletries, and other hard objects. Outside is an impenetrable shell that bends under pressure and never breaks. Bonus: It’ll even charge your phone or tablet!

Are these slippers or shoes? The answer is both.

Made in Europe, they come in two shades of gray with a choice of sole colors.
