Christmas is fast approaching (uh yeah like TOMORROW!) and you’re uncertain as to what to get for your dad, brother, son, uncle, cousin, friend-zoner, or your “Him.” Maybe money is tight right now, or you’re just not into blowing your life savings on Christmas gifts. Whichever the case, there is little time left to get your life together. Not to worry, though! I’ve short-listed 5 things under $30 that can make a gentleman happy this holiday season.
We tend to run to the usual shirt & ties, pocket squares etc. but there are plenty of other thoughtful things out there that show you listen, and that you care.
And if this is too late for Christmas, theres always birthdays and Valentines Day!
1. A book. DIY and How To guides can prove themselves to be gems. A friend of mine (now future wife) got me a gentleman’s style guide which has already transformed into one of my most valuable possessions.
Dressing The Man $28.99
2. Novelty items. Nothing says hero more than being the one with the bottle opener or the cool glasses (or in this case horn) when the beer arrives. It’s still football season, and he probably lost the one he got from the dollar store. Spencers and Groupon can be your friends in this situation.
3. Roadside Kit I got an air pump, and jumper cables for under $30. Check his trunk. You won’t have to feel like it’s a waste with this investment. Besides, winter is coming, might as well get ready.
4. Beard maintenance kit Because it’s beard season. By popular opinion, beard is the new 6 pack.
