Allbirds Wool Runners

Step up your guy’s weekend jeans-and-tee uniform with these lightweight, durable sneakers. Crafted from super-soft merino wool, they’re comfortable enough for the usual outdoor activities (bike rides, park outings, soccer games), but also stylish enough for dinner out on the town. The material is what makes them so awesome: It’s way more flexible than leather or canvas, so it conforms to your foot, like a memory-foam pillow. Plus, they wick away sweat, don’t itch, reduce odors, and resist getting dirty—and they’re machine washable, so just toss them in the laundry when necessary. Also available in women’s sizes.

Schultz & Malley Gentleman’s Daily Routine Grooming Kit

Remember the thrill of receiving a box of new crayons? Then, perhaps later on, the joy of a makeup palette? This is the well-groomed fellow’s equivalent. Schultz & Malley Trading Company is offering a starter set of their beautifully packaged grooming products. The kit includes a mild Cleansing Face Wash (six fluid ounces), the conditioning Pre-Shave Oil (one fluid ounce), the Brushless Shave Cream to soften hair and protect skin, and a lightweight Aftershave Balm to rejuvenate shaved skin. If you buy this for your significant other, get ready to make some room on the bathroom shelves, as he is likely to want more.

YETI Rambler Colster

For the guy who has dreamt of owning this beverage cooler with a cult following (the classic styles can reach upwards of $500!), consider an individual “cooler” for his favorite refreshment. His canned or bottled beverage will stay chilled for hours within this double-walled insulator—without chilling his hands as well (the exterior will not get too cold or sweat with condensation). This stainless-steel drink sleeve seals the container securely with a twist-on gasket to offer up maximum temperature consistency. He can even show off his team pride: Yeti has 20 college team logos available, as well as custom options.

Happy Plugs Sound Piece Portable Speaker

If you’re looking for a gift for that family member who insists on music in every room, why not choose something functional, yet subtle? With the look of Carrara marble, this little beauty fits the bill. At six-and-a-half inches long, it blends in seamlessly with your décor, while it rocks the house. With Bluetooth connectivity, a battery lifespan of 15-hours, and an emergency power bank to charge a phone on the go, it may become his new constant companion. Weighing in at less than a pound, this portable speaker is easy to tote anywhere.

Silicon Toiletry Kit

For the guy on the go who travels with a collection of clear plastic bags for his toiletries in case of an in-air burst (or, worse, a shampoo explosion without a plastic bag). This super sturdy waterproof dopp kit eliminates the need for the extra packaging around his bath products. When a spill happens, just empty the contents of the bag and give it a rinse in the sink. It’s roomy enough for all of the essentials and stylish enough to earn a spot on the counter when he’s not headed to the other coast for the weekend.

Hudson Made Beard and Shave Soap in Original White

This American-made bar soap not only creates a rich, creamy lather for shaving, but it also doubles as beard shampoo for any guy who is trying to pull off a more rugged look. The original comes in a woodsy scent of cedar wood, juniper, myrrh, and black pepper, which only adds to the lumberjack persona. It’s sure to become a staple in his bathroom toiletry kit. Also available in two other fragrances: Citron Neroli (a sweet-and-spicy blend of petitgrain, white grapefruit, neroli, and cedar wood) and Cedar Clove (a warm blend of cedar leaf, cinnamon, allspice, and clove).
