The point of a present isn’t the item itself—it’s to prove that you know the recipient and care enough to devote time to finding the just-right thing. This holiday season, show your partner how well you listen by wrapping up something that’s exactly what they want or need (or, most impressively, didn’t even know they wanted yet). And should you find yourself short on time, pay special attention to our first recommendation, a classic pick that basically wraps itself. Check out six gifts that'll show your significant other you really listen.
Their favorite pour is the gift that keeps on giving since it’ll serve up many a smooth sip of rich, creamy whisky with hints of oak and the sweet flavor of vanilla. Crown Royal goes one step further because its iconic bottle basically counts as a bar decor. Dashing from shop to presentation? The smart purple pouch doubles as wrapping—and for a special touch you can even personalize it with a nickname or phrase near and dear to the two of you. Please Drink Responsibly. CROWN ROYAL Blended Canadian Whisky. 35% Alc/Vol. The Crown Royal Company, New York, NY.
You and your partner have been living in comfy clothes these days, right? Unofficial studies show that a large percentage of men put comfort above anything else when it comes to clothing. Help him figure out a simple solution for when a plain tee won't cut it with a classic polo designed to be stretchy, breathable, and basically as un-shirt-like as possible.
Shy of packing for them—which, sorry, is not going to happen—a set of packing cubes can help them get the job done. Ideal for people who travel a lot or anyone who hates the hassle of trying to wrangle everything into a carry-on.
If your definition of love is showing interest in the other’s hobbies, approach gifting by searching out little tools that you might not totally understand, but they definitely will. This handy set has the added cool factor of coming from actor Bill Murray and his golf-loving brothers.
Not all men wear jewelry, but those that do often want a little bit of help. If you’re shopping for someone who’s mentioned appreciating an accessorized look before, start off his collection with a non-fussy piece that can be worn every day.
