Great Gifts for Guys
TOM FORD BEARD OIL AND BEARD COMB
What could be better than a super-soft beard? One that smells good, too. Tom Ford accomplishes both with his blend of oils and Vitamin E lightly fragranced with one of his signature Private Blend scents. Pair this present with the brand's beard comb, and stare in amazement while his scruff takes sophisticated shape.

DUKE CANNON SOAP
We've always wished our soap had a story! Duke's brick-shaped bars are modeled after what GIs used in the Korean War, and are handmade in Memphis. And these scents are meant to do more than just please the nose: we love "Accomplishment," a bergamot and black pepper blend and "Productivity," a minty concoction.

Sorry, guys: That beat-up gym bag from Paul Greenberg's Bar Mitzvah isn't going to cut it anymore. Encourage him to carry his stuff in style (and perhaps entice him to take you on a few more weekend trips) with this classic duffle from Everlane.

RIVA'S TURBO X SPEAKER
Even if you've gifted your guy a speaker in the past, it's time to replace it with this one. Yes, it's a bit of a splurge, but the portable bluetooth speaker acts like a full-on surround sound system (which costs thousands of dollars). The "Turbo" mode option boosts music up to 100 decibels (the bass on this thing is insane), plus it has a +26 hour battery life, and can charge your phone and tablet. (Seriously, not only will my husband love it, but I will definitely reap the benefits too.)

NEW BALANCE ZIP-UP
Show him you care by keeping him extra-safe on his runs and bike rides. The neon yellow hue is impossible to miss by day and the reflective trim (and glowing material) ensures that he can't be missed at night – hence the name "Beacon" for this sporty, all-purpose jacket.

BLEU DE CHANEL COLOGNE
For the first time, this classic woody-meets-citrus scent is now available in an Eau de Parfum (translation: it's more concentrated than the original). A spritz or two in the AM will keep your guy smelling fantastic all day and all night. (So basically, its a gift for you too.)

ANTHONY SHAVE CREAM
If you've got a guy in your life who thinks any product that's not from a drugstore qualifies as "makeup," think of Anthony's whipped formula as the perfect gateway-product to man-beauty. It's infused with Hops to help prevent irritation, so it's like (undrinkable) beer for his face!

SIMON G BRACELET
Splurge alert! Who says that diamonds are only a girl's best friend? If a man in your life has been really good this year, why not spoil him this rugged twist on a diamond bracelet? Black diamonds are a male celeb fave. They look masculine and sleek with just a hint of sparkle. Plus, it's the perfect alternative if he isn't a watch guy.
