Bring Joy To His World This Holiday Season!
Whether you’ve got oenophiles, cinephiles or technophiles on your shopping list, 2life has got your covered with the ultimate holiday gift guide for guys.
The Wes Anderson Collection: The stylish cinephile in your life likely has The Wes Anderson Collection at the top of his wish list. The 400-page tome celebrates the life, filmography and aesthetic of one of the most influential filmmakers of our time, and its design is just as whimsical and artful as an Anderson movie. Written by award-winning critic Matt Seitz, the book includes previously unpublished artwork and photos, along with an in-depth interview between the author and his fascinating subject.
Colorblock Zip Hoodie: Get a head start on cheering for our country’s athletes in the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics with the Hudson’s Bay’s stylish Olympic Collection. While there are many items in the collection to choose from, including mittens, coats and tees, this colorblock hooded sweatshirt is a cozy and fashion-forward way for guys to show their patriotism.
Moleskine Wine Passion Journal: How many times have you been in the liquor store, trying to remember the name of the fabulous Zinfandel that your guests brought to your last dinner party, only to draw a blank and leave the store with your go-to Merlot? It happens to the best of us, but it doesn’t have to happen anymore, thanks to the Wine Passion Journal from Moleskine. Crafted with Moleskine’s signature quality and style, the Wine Passion Journal is the perfect way to fuel any oenophile’s passion. The journal lets the wine aficionado record tasting notes and assign a 5-star rating, making it a roster-slash-memory book for every sip of vino that has crossed his discerning palette.
Two-Tone Blundstone Boots: Blundstone, the Australian boot company known for its durable, comfortable boots, released a stylish line of two-tone shoes in Fall 2013–and we think every guy should own a pair! Whether you’re shopping for a rural outdoorsman or an urban professional, look no further. These boots will keep his feet warm and dry if he’s trekking through a snowy field or navigating a slushy sidewalk, and the added pop of color is a pleasant alternative to the season’s drab blacks, browns and beiges.
Antler bottle opener: Continuing on the rugged, outdoorsman theme, this rustic antler bottle opener from Indigo is a must-have accessory for any man-cave worth its salt. Retailing for a mere $14.50, it’s the perfect stocking stuffer for your sweetie, or a great option for the male colleague whose name you drew in the office Secret Santa whom you’ve yet to say hi to. Heck, it’s so festive and affordable, you might even want to buy it for yourself!
Plaid Tie: What’s Christmas without the requisite gift of a stylish neck tie? Outfit your dapper dude in a vintage-inspired plaid tie from The Tie Bar this holiday season. While it might not be the most thrilling gift under the tree, he’ll appreciate having something new to wear to Christmas dinner, and you’ll get the satisfaction of knowing that your guy looks like he stepped out of the pages of GQ.
iPad Mini 2: Bring some joy to his world with the gift of an iPad Mini. The compact, stylish tablet is perfect for any occasion–from reading on the commuter train, to playing Carcassone in bed. If you and your sweetie both have iOS devices, you can download our 2life app (it’s free!) and use it to stay connected and organized. Built for two people to use, 2life lets you and your partner share photos and links, coordinate calendar events and make and manage lists together. Plus, it’ll give your guy another excuse to use his shiny new device!
