Holiday Gift Guide: Men

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you’re celebrating the holiday with your nearest and dearest with Black Friday deals on the back burner. However, when the men slip into their post-football, post-turkey tryptophan haze, it’s the perfect time to check off your shopping list. I rounded up a few products that Dave endorses, but a bottle of bourbon is always appreciated if none of these strikes your man’s fancy. 

1. Z Gallerie, $20 each // 2. Kaufmann Mercantile, $219 // 3. Gant, $147 // 4. Nike, $70 // 5. Nike, $149 // 6. Kent Wang, $45 // 7. Kiehl’s, $42 // 8. Jack Spade, $10 // 9.

Holiday Gift Guide: The Frequent Flyer

image

The seasoned traveler on your list will always appreciate a luxury luggage tag and a beautiful satchel to attach it to, but a gift that reminds her of a special trip will be even more treasured. Even though they’re a splurge, a pair of bistro chairs can bring back memories of lazy afternoons in Paris. A little brass elephant is a wallet-friendly way to commemorate an adventure in Thailand. If she’s more of a U.S. traveler, a set of mint julep cups (not pictured) will bring her back to the horse races at Churchill Downs. 

1. Naked Decor, $27 set of 2 // 2. Julie Vos, $165 // 3. Air Repair, $12 // 4. Uqllu, scarves start at $85 // 5. High Street Market, $28 // 6. Tory Burch, $325 // 7. Julie Vos, $165 // 8. Flight 001, $28 // 9. Cotton On, $15 // 10. Tiffany & Co., $85 // 11. Diane von Furstenberg, $95 // 12. Floto, $299 // 13. Lauren by Ralph Lauren, $48 // 14. Williams-Sonoma, $295
