Gift Guide for Guys

It can be hard to shop for a guy (or so I’ve been told). Here are some very special gifts I would want–not cheap, but not extravagant.  I hope this helps!

Starting from the top left:

This 50mm Canon lens is a bargain, and will give you a beautiful depth-of-field. It’s also great for low-light conditions. If price is less of an issue for you, you might get this 50mm lens

–a more professional version with a more professional price tag.

Its hard not to admire a simple, attractive (and classic) timepiece.

Anyone who listens to music, but especially those with an iPhone, will love the Bose earbuds with microphone . After getting used to these, I have a hard time actually holding my phone up to my head.  I love Bose, though a friend recommended the Bang & Olufsen 3i

, which are supposed to be great, too.

Lookmatic has very affordable, but cool sunglass frames.

The two pairs of shoes pictured are by a Los Angeles-based company called Generic Surplus. These shoes can be found here and here.

For an alternative to run-of-the-mill pomade, this Tancho Tique

does the trick.

For anyone who likes to cook, a proper chef’s knife is essential; it’s the only knife you truly need in the kitchen. A good chef’s knife can last a lifetime, and Shun

makes an extremely sharp one, crafted using similar techniques  as those used to make Samurai swords.

Not pictured, but also very cool, is Apple’s wireless back-up hard drive

. While everyone needs more storage space, no one needs more wires.


Lastly (and now to make even a gift guide cheesy):  if you give anything to him with love, he will love it.
