Gift Guide: For the Boy(ish)!

Whether you're shopping for your boyfriend, your butch girlfriend, your favorite tomboy, your little brother, your dad, or yourself: here's hoping my round-up of products for the masculine-of-center people in your life help cross a couple of items off your list!

1. Engineered Garments Chambray Workshirt, $175. The red contrast stitching is so good that you'll want to steal this shirt for yourself. 2. Jack Spade "Le Dirt Coal Bag" Tote, $250. Whatever you do, don't call it a "Man Bag." 3. Suede Buck Chukka Boot, $88. 4. Mast Brothers Chocolate, $9 each. 5. Jack Black Lip Balm, $7.50. Jack Black Face Moisturizer, $17. Jack Black Beard Lube Conditioning Shave, $16. 6. House of Papillon Faded Denim Bowtie, $40. 7. Field Notes 18-Month Calendar, $12. 8. Maxx & Unicorn Card Sleeve, $55. Hand-crafted in Brooklyn from a single piece of leather, it's like fancy origami! 9. Urbanears Headphones, $60. 10. Johnny Walker Black Label Scotch, $51. Okay, it might not be Blue Label, but it'll make a damn good Highball.
