[GIFTED] Greyhours Watches

When it comes to men's accessories, you're in a virtual sea of blacks and browns.  MAYBE they'll throw in something navy to mix it up, but that's typically as crazy as it gets.  That's why when you wear anything with a little color in it, you're considered avant garde.  People will regard you as fashionable because you dared to wear a red belt or yellow shoes (hopefully you didn't wear them together or you definitely looked like Ronald McDonald).  That's why you'll stand out when you wear this watch from Greyhours Watches ($175).  It's white, it's simple, it's elegant, and it'll set you apart without costing you a fortune.  And ladies—I regard this watch as totally unisex.  FINALLY, something you can share with your boyfriend besides a pizza.

[GIFTED] Hard Graft Refresh Dopp Kit 

All dopp kits more or less have the same shape, but the people at London-based Hard Graft decided to turn it on its head, with this Refresh Dopp Kit ($233, Hard Graft), which is built up rather than out like most dopp kits.  It makes sense when you think about it—shampoo, shaving cream, and the like are all made to stand upright, so why not house them correctly?  This gorgeous leather and wool kit allows for that, and because they're upright, allows less opportunity for leakage.  You can use it to travel, but it's so handsome that you'll probably use it to keep your stuff organized right on your bathroom counter at home.

[GIFTED] Alcoho-Lock

Each day, you ride your bike to work with good intentions.  You want to be green, you want to save money by not paying for the subway or a cab, and you want to get some exercise.  This is all great.  Until, that is, you get sucked into happy hour drinks with your co-workers.  "I can only have one drink," you tell them.  "I have my bike."  But, of course, one drink turns into 100 drinks and you're faced with a decision.  Ride your bike drunk, or leave it there for the night.  Obviously the second option is really the only option, but when we're drunk, we make dumb decisions.  How many times have you had to convince that one friend of yours that, no, he's not sober enough to drive a car.  

Enter the Alcoho-Lock ($240), a bike lock that employs breathalyzer technology.  You blow into the lock, and if it detects alcohol, it won't unlock.  It'll also send a message to a designated contact that you're going to need a ride home.  Basically, this thing saves you from yourself.  If you're the type of person that needs regular protection from your own stupid decisions, think about purchasing it.

[GIFTED] Thanksgiving Turkey Football

 

If you're a member of a particularly athletic family, your gatherings often center around sports and fitness. Around Thanksgiving, you all run together in your town's Turkey Trot.  Your brother organizes a touch football game in the backyard after everyone's about to pass out from the mind-numbing effects of turkey's tryptophan. Your mom watches from the porch, your dad is locked into a silent competition with your brother to prove that he's still the man of the house, and your sister's new boyfriend plays a little too aggressively for everyone's collective comfort level.

This year, at Thanksgiving, present this commemorative Thanksgiving Turkey Football ($140, Leather Head Sports) to your family of competitive assholes athletes.  Declare it the Thanksgiving "game ball" and give it to each year's MVP to keep until next year.  You're like the Waltons.  Except drunker.

[GIFTED] Basil Hayden's + Quoddy Limited Edition Gift Set

It's an inevitable quirk: a guy who loves whiskey and bourbon typically has an affinity for leather.  Leather shoes, leather club chairs, leather everything.  Basil Hayden’s and Maine-based footwear brand Quoddy were thinking specifically of that guy when they decided to team up to create 100 limited edition gift sets for the upcoming holiday season.

The Basil Hayden’s + Quoddy Gift Set ($400, Huckberry) contains four leather-wrapped rocks glasses, packaged in a handstitched leather gift box that we're sure you can find another use for, and a pair of made-to-order, co-branded Basil Hayden’s + Quoddy shoes.  The bottle of Basil Hayden's is sold separately, so put on your drinking shoes and high tail it to the liquor store, will ya?
