Great Gifts for the Foodie Guy in Your Life

Do you or someone you know love to cook — or drink? Give the gourmand, foodie or aspiring chef in your life these great gifts for the holidays:

Kole: Whether you like whiskey or espresso, this handcrafted, wood flask with stainless steel accents ($95) is the perfect way to transport your favorite drink in style.

Corkcicle Chillsner: Who doesn’t love a cold beer? Insert the Corkcicle Chillsner into any standard-sized beer bottle and you’ll have a perfectly chilled beer whenever you want it.

Timana Huila Colombian: This South American coffee comes with a twist for brew lowers — the aroma of lemon zest and cocoa. It’s medium-bodied, sweet and acidic at the same time, making for the perfect cup.

Mantry: From Blue Apron to HelloFresh, meal delivery services are increasingly trendy. But Mantry is carving its own niche with meal delivery for men. Order a subscription and you’ll get six artisan food products in each delivery, along with product stories and recipes. Any man who loves to cook — or who is fine-tuning his culinary skills — will appreciate this gift.

Happy holidays!

Great Gifts for Guys Who Like to Travel

Still wondering what to get everyone this Christmas? If you or someone on your holiday list is an avid traveler, these gifts will make his travel experience even more memorable:

BookBook for MacBook: If you’re going to spend $1,500 on machinery, you might as well protect it. BookBook makes a genuine leather case that looks like something you’d find in your local library stacks. With a velvet interior, your MacBook will be protected inside and out.

Carry-on Cocktail Kit:  If the traveler in your life would rather make his own drink than sip an in-flight cocktail, this carry-on cocktail kit is perfect for him. With this kit, which contains ingredients to make two drinks, he can become his own onboard mixologist.

Below the Boat: If the traveler in your life loves anything nautical, these wood charts are the perfect gift. Below the Boat hand colors the oceans blue and laser cuts contours into sheets of plywood to create charts that are visually stunning. Its inventory includes everything from the San Juan Islands to the Boston Harbor and the Great Lakes, but the company also solicits requests for additional charts to add to its selection.

AeroPress Coffee Maker: A bitter cup of coffee can ruin anyone’s morning, but the AeroPress coffee maker ensures you have a good-tasting cup. It makes one to three cups per pressing in one minute, giving you full-flavored coffee without any grit.

Great Gifts for the Outdoorsy Guy in Your Life


If your holiday shopping list still looks the same today as it did in early November, don’t panic. You still have time to get everyone — and yourself — a great gift. If you’re still scratching your head about what to get the outdoorsy guy in your life, our holiday gift guide is all you need:

Fitbit Flex: At $99.95, the Fitbit Flex is a good option if you’ve just jumped onto the wearable fitness bandwagon. The Flex tracks distance, calories, steps and even sleep. It’s a great gift for someone who values health and fitness — and anyone whose New Year’s resolution involves getting into great shape.

10-Year Hoodie: How often can you wear something for a decade and not have one tatter or tear in it? Flint & Tinder’s 10-year hoodie comes with a 10-year guarantee. If your hoodie starts to show some wear, the company will give it some TLC and repair any rips, tears or seam imperfections.

National Parks Coffee Table Book: If the outdoorsy guy in your life is more cerebral, gift him this 160-page, hardcover coffee table book. The book features historic photos, 12 oil paintings, a U.S. map, travel tips and 59 National Park posters.
