‘The Dude;’ we all shop for them. Whether they’re your dad, brother, co-worker, or significant other, chances are, you have at least one dude on your shopping list this holiday season. What to get ‘The Dude’?? Truth-be-told, I put this one off myself. Shopping for men can be so…frustrating. With this in mind, I’ve created a gift list sure to satisfy ‘The Dude’ on your list:
The Grilling Dude
“Man Crates:” no bows, no ribbons, no fluff…and absolutely no instructions! For a little over $100, a crate full of grilling accessories (complete with a brass knuckle meat tendorizer!) will be delivered to his doorstep. Catchy marketing aside, the contents look really useful too!
The Outdoorsy Dude
My dude got this for Christmas last year and, as the temperatures have recentely reached freezing again here in Seattle, it is back in the rotation. Warmth for him, stylish for me…oh, and Filson is know for functionality. It’s a total win.
The Manicured Dude
Beards are a big thing (even outside of Seattle!). While I’m endorsing my dude’s new facial hair, grooming is a MUST. Jack Black’s set can make sure your dude is cleaned, trimmed and generally well-groomed (if not well-behaved).
The Trendy Dude
Scotch & Soda is one of my best kept secrets…but I shouldn’t keep it all to myself! Great stylish, unique, men’s apparel with a retro flare yet totally modern fit. I love all of their prints (my dude even does too!). And, their women’s section is pretty awesome too.
The Athletic Dude
I got my Brooks’ Heritage Collection sneakers and my dude immediately wanted a pair too! I’m loving the cool all-black styling of these Chariot sneakers. Perfect dressed up for a casual day in the office or worn casual by your weekend warrior. PS. They also come in women’s sizes (stay tuned…I may be sporting these soon!)
The Geek Dude
Yeah, it’s a fridge disguised as R2 D2. Enough said.
The Domesticated Dude
Riedel “O” Cabernet Wine Tumbler (fantastic price!!)
We have these at our house – my dude (and others in our household) can be clumsy. There’s something about loosing the stem that seems more manly; yet the shape is classically beautiful.
I’ve sung these socks’ praises before. 100% wool allows for warmth and breathability. My dude loves these (as do I). Hope he’s not reading because I picked up several pairs for his stocking (I found mine at Queen Anne Dispatch).
