With the launch of Jenni Kayne Home and new brands like Filson and Defy in our assortment for the first time ever, we have a really great selection of holiday gifts for him this year. I love that these travel bags, leather goods, and home essentials marry functionality and good design. I think those two qualities are what make for a really special gift he’ll use and love well beyond the holidays. I’ve included a few ideas for what to get the guys in your life, below. I hope you find something he’ll love in here! XXJKE
For the Outdoorsman
Seattle-based heritage brand Filson is the perfect source for a gift for the outdoorsy guy in your life. Their durable but smart-looking bags and small accessories work for casual offices, campgrounds, and everywhere in between.
Hero Gift Idea: Turn one of Filson’s twill and leather bags into a special gift for your husband or partner by filling it with a few likeminded items. An Izola flask, alpaca blanket, and a note about your next camping trip would make for a romantic gift!
For the Tech-Savy Guy
Defy’s minimalist leather tech sleeves are perfect for the business or tech-savvy guy who could use an upgrade. The sleek, hand-cut design works for everyone from college students to CEOs and the leather only looks better with age and use.
Hero Gift Idea: Whether it’s your son, your partner, or your father, a new computer or tablet is the ultimate holiday splurge. Present the gift in one of Defy’s leather cases and the accessories in one of our linen and leather pouches for a beautiful presentation that’s useful too.
For the Home Chef
Beautiful and functional gifts for the kitchen are one of our passions. LSA International’s spare glass pitchers and carafes are great for the guy who appreciates hand-crafted beverages. The European brand’s platters and containers, meanwhile, will please the foodie in your life.
Hero Gift Idea: Turn one of these serving pieces into a proper gift basket with sundries or mixers that speak to the piece’s primary function. Pair LSA’s glass carafe with a beautiful bottle of wine, for example, or the Ash wood serving platter with an array of hard cheeses, nuts, and dried fruit.
