As promised, we're back this week to help you shop for gifts for all the marvelous men in your life! Whether he is looking for new items for the closet, for daily grooming, or to add to the home, we've collected a few of our favorites to assist your various needs:

For your boyfriend/husband:

How about a warm piece of outerwear with a clean look for your main squeeze? This army green puff jacket by San Francisco-based company Alamere is made with Primaloft insulation with a quilted soft interior, providing warmth and performance without the usual puffiness. Available in the displayed army green as well as black in-store and online for $179. 

Could your guy use a t-shirt upgrade? Your can't go wrong with one of our many in the shop. Our current fav is from new vendor Honour Brand who pays recognition to the national treasures and landmarks that helped shape the world as we know it.  Available in store and our online shop for $30. 


A staff favorite, this deodorant cream by Fat and the Moon is guaranteed to please the guy who is conscious about his grooming products. All natural and aluminum FREE, it uses coconut oil and baking soda as the bacteria checking dynamic duo. Mixed with moisture absorbing properties of arrowroot and antimicrobial properties of essentials oils, you and your pits will never be happier! And the best part? It doesn't stain, even the black shirts! The absolute perfect stocking stuffer! Available in-store and our online shop for $14.

For your brother:
