The popular opinion is that men are notoriously hard to shop for. We strongly disagree! We’ve found a few fun and unique gifts for the guys in your life. Not only will these gifts bring a smile to their face, but purchasing them also supports local and small businesses, which is something we can all feel good about!
Keep him warm with a soft and classic houndstooth scarf ($185) from Island Weaves. Handwoven on Nantucket from silky alpaca, these scarfs are made to be heirloom quality. In the fall, paired with a cashmere sweater or in the winter with a wool coat, not only do these scarves keep one toasty, but they also create that classic look that is the quintessential Bostonian gentleman.
It’s true, ladies do go crazy for a sharp-dressed man. Give the gift of style to your hubby, dad, son, or even yourself with a custom suit from 9Tailors. The custom clothier has garnered lots of attention from their gorgeous end products. Professional athletes to the everyday guy have become loyal customers. Why? Because 9Tailors expertly crafts confidence in the form of power suits fitted specifically for each individual.
For about a hundred years, until 1957, Waltham Watches perfected the art of making timepieces. Today, one can find these Massachusetts-made watches in museums. But Vortic Watches is bringing the past to the future by carefully restoring these pieces to their precise original state. Pictured here is the already sold Boston 392 ($2495.00). With a clear backing that exposes the inner works, these watches make the perfect gift for the mechanical engineering junkie or the guy who simply appreciates good style.
Men like to be pampered too! So give your guy an old-school experience with a gift certificate from the award-winning Boston Barber & Tattoo. Not only do they offer a killer cut, but at the North End location, they also serve up hot towel shaves with a side of espresso. Oh, and if you’re feeling particularly adventurous, you could even get a fresh new ink from one of their “Best of Boston” tattoo artists
Send him on a flight with a rye whiskey sampling ($89.99) from Boston Harbor Spirits. Made in Boston by Sam Adams co-founder Rhonda Kallman, this belly-warming flight offers five varieties, the Putnam Old Fashioned, Red Wine Finish, Cask Strength, Rye (white label), and Demon Seed Whiskey. We love that purchasing this flight not only supports a local business but one that is woman-owned.
