Holiday Gift Guide: For Men. + A Giveaway!

The Nutmeg Collective's Holiday Gift Guide continues on! This week we will be visiting some of our favorite member shops to help those of you who still have shopping to do find the perfect item for gifting. We've showed off what we have for house and home yesterday, and we'll have offerings for kids and babies, for the ladies, as well as gifts for anyone, anytime coming in the next few days.

Today we're looking at gifts for men- the often elusive and hard to buy for.  Suggestions for men are always in demand and we have plenty for you:

The Copper Fox

The Copper Fox has some wonderful hand-stamped metal options for the holiday season, including this four-sided bar keychain.  Made of food-grade aluminum, each side can be stamped with the wording of your choice, making it a truly personalized gift.

Pure Naked Soap

For those who hate shaving, or get irritated skin from the process, consider Pure Naked Soap's Shave Soap.  Produced to reduce allergens, they use gluten free products, and rather than using a combination of chemicals to create a slippery lather, this shave soap uses organic and natural oils combined with French green and bentonite clay.

https://www.etsy.com/listing/185196335/hartford-pints-small-state-great-beer-ct?ref=shop_home_active_8

The ladies of Hartford Prints! help represent Connecticut's fine points, one of them being local brew.  For the beer lover, this "Small State, Great Beer" glass would be the perfect gift- perhaps combined with a bottle or two of locally brewed beer.  Sold individually and in sets of four or six.

Rad Dad Tees

If you are a dad, have a dad, or love a dad, then Rad Dad Tees is the place to find the perfect t-shirt for him.  Bold graphics and humorous taglines that are all too true celebrate dadhood and the job of being a good father.  Not only are these shirts completely cool, but a portion of the proceeds are donated to charity.

Queen Vanna Creations

Instead of a page-a-day desk calendar, how about something a little more interactive?  Perpetual calendars from Queen Vanna Creations are made from sturdy wood blocks and meticulously detailed with patterned paper.  Useful year after year, they make for a fun accent for any desk, shelf, or mantel.  Plus, we're partial to the paper airplanes.

BMR.photographs

Local travel enthusiasts will love the photography of BMR.photographs.  Featuring nature scenes and architecture of New England like this Vermont gristmill, these rustic images will add charm to any photo display.

  1. By the by, a lot of your links aren't working. Queen Vanna's are all incorrect. I had to fix the URLs manually.
