Hither & Thither Gift Guide: For Him

gift guide for him

  1. He can use these Italian sour cherries to make the best Manhattan cocktail, or to pair with a sharp cheddar on the prefect cheese plate. (My guy would do both.) They’re so delicious.
  2. And, if the time is right, get him a set of Tritan Crystal Glasses
    for that cocktail. These are practically unbreakable—amazing for crystal.
  3. A wooden-soccer table. (Is a toy or puzzle ever a bad idea? See post script.) [Update: similar]
  4. 36 Hours travel book
    . End the “What do you want to do this weekend?” debate once and for all.  Afterall, it’s still a gift even if you stand to benefit. 
  5. Everyone needs a really good waffle iron.
     (Again, it’s still a gift even…) Make these with it.
  6. The National Parks: America’s Best Idea
    . He’ll pore over this beautiful book, full of archival detail. (Not a nature guy? Perhaps try this
  7. A beautiful, subtly masculine leather and canvas tote for his laptop etcetera. (This would also do.)
  8. Aron and our friend raved about Kraken Black Rum on our trip to Cayman last year. (Optional: throw in a Ginger Beer
    syrup that he can keep on hand for a dark-and-stormy.)
  9. Does he have a Grid-It Organizer
    for all of his charge cords yet? They’re invaluable. We love ours, even for the drawer at home.
  10. Form and function: a sleek Bento box that’s both microwave- and dishwasher-safe. [Update: Similar]
  11. Unleash his inner Bear Grylls. He needsLifeStraw Personal Water Filter
    for all that time he spends roughing it in wilderness.
  12. This insert
     turns any old sack into a first-rate camera bag.

Or play it safe: A gift card to Nordstrom. Their half-yearly Men’s sale (one of the best all year) starts the day after Christmas.

P.S. Last year’s guide. And the year’s before that. (That toy helicopter remains my favorite go-to gift suggestion for guys.)
