Shopping for the men in your life–your father, husband, brother, brother’s boyfriend– is never easy. They don’t usually like sparkly high heels and that’s where we usually get stumped. So after some searching we came up with a couple of ideas that fit into a range of budgets and personalities.
First, we are crazy for the new concept Tasting Room. The site/company allows you to order boxes of wine samplers. For example there’s a Sonoma Zinfandel sampler, a Chef Batali selection and a Tour of Napa Valley sampler. Each box contains six small bottles of wine perfect for a taste or sharing a taste. The samplers range from $20 to $50 and there are lots of promotions and online coupons that bring the price down even further.
Okay, we all know that Moncler is the urban “it” winter jacket for men, women and children but what do you do if you’re looking for something a little less ubiquitous? We found Duvetica men’s jackets. These high shine, fun style, jackets are made of goose down and are also reversible. We especially love the colored zippers and the ability to reverse to camo. Prices are in the similar vicinity of Moncler ($500 to $1100) but we love the fact that it’s not on every Tom, Dick, Harry, Melissa and Zoe. Duvetica can be found online here and at Barneys.
Guys like sports, or so I’m told. Those shopping for guys who prefer mountain peaks to ocean crests could consider Black Diamond’s Cayenne gloves ($380). The battery-operated heating system pumps heat through the glove, so your fingers stay warm even in a freezing gondola.
If all else fails you can by your stallion a stallion. United Arab Emirates-based horse farm, Al Hawajer Stud, sells some of the world’s most beautiful Arabians. What man wouldn’t go wild for a long legged exotic? The best part is that once he gets his prize horse he will learn the real meaning of high-maintenance.
