Holiday 2013: For the Boys

holiday 2013 gift guide: for the boys

Best Made Co. First Aid Kit ($48) makes camping cooler and winter driving safer // MCMC Dude No. 1 Natural Cologne ($75) smells like the north woods in winter // Smallflower Lavendar Basil Soap ($4.50) de-stresses with aromatherapy while keeping bacne at bay // Elizabeth Dehn for One Love Organics Vitamin E Eye Balm ($48) is the most stolen  product in my medicine cabinet. Enough said. // Dollar Shave Club membership (from $1/mo.) puts an end to him running up the Target bill on razors—and stealing yours // Aesop Deodorant ($35) could not be more expensive until you realize is packed with the most sigh-worthy essential oils and totally unisex // Portland General Store Whiskey Shaving Cream ($18) skin-soothing, deep-pore cleansing and old-school as hell. // Ursa Major Men Big Kahuna x Topo Dopp Kit ($125) seriously has it all: four full-size skincare + shave products from one of the few men’s lines worth writing home about, plus a hard-core camo Cordura nylon bag that outdoor enthusiasts actually use.
