SuthinGirl 2015 Holiday Gift Guide: The Gentlemen, Vol. 3

December 08, 2015

SuthinGirl had a sweet little telephone chat with her hubby this morning after dropping the kids off at school. Like every other girl out there, I’m looking for gifts to surprise my handsome man for the holidays.

I asked him, “Whatcha thinking Santa might bring you this year?” Without missing a beat, he replied, “Jeans, boxers and casual shoes.” Um. Okay. Not very exciting!!! To heck with that, I’m going rogue.

Here are a few of MY favorite things for the men on our holiday lists!

Holiday Gift Guides: Click to Shop!

For the Gentlemen: Fashion, Food & Function

LED Hat $24 ON SALE $14

This cracks me up. We have a drawer of those elastic banded head lights in our mud room that the boys (this includes my hubby, Dean) reach for when tasked with taking out the trash or going out for more firewood or anything having to do with the outdoors after 5 p.m.

I’m pretty much convinced they just love to wear lights on their heads. Guess what Santa’s bringing them this year??


English All Weather Padlock $38

There’s nothing quite as badass as padlocks made in Squire, England. They’ve been protecting English barns and sheds for since the 19th century, so I think they’ll just about do for a cabinet or gate or whatever else your man likes to lock up!

Squire’s all weather padlocks are built to take the worst nature doles out, functioning superbly where other locks seize up. Crafted with forged steel shackles, a hardened steel case and brass keyhole cover. Made in England.


Lab Series MAX LS Instant Eye Lift $46

10% OFF Until 12/17! Use Code FRIENDS = $41.40

He’s gonna say thank you. I don’t know a guy out there, as rugged as he may seem, who doesn’t notice the dark circles and fine lines. They allll do, trust me. And he has no clue what to do about them. But you do!

This little wonder is so magical it made Mr. Porter’s prestigious stocking stuffer list! If your guy is a good boy and uses it once a day, he’ll see results that will make him strut his stuff with even more swagger. *wink

Nelson’s Mini Barrel $79.95

A must for any whiskey enthusiast!

Made in Kentucky from the same oak used in large whiskey barrels, this small 2-liter barrel is perfect for aging whiskey at home! Just fill it up through the resealable hole on the top with Nelson’s Green Brier Tennessee White Whiskey (not included) and then sit back and let time to the rest.

Engraved on the front with Nelson’s Green Brier Distillery DSP 5 seal art, it includes a stand and front spout to aid in easy taste tests along the way.


SuthinGirl Gift Tip: Include a bottle (or two) of Nelson’s Green Brier Tennessee White Whiskey so he can enjoy his gift right away!

 Cyntur JumperPack Mini Lithium-Ion Jump Starter $99.99

For guys who like gadgets and cars…this little superhero will send them into orbit!

It will save their bacon if their car battery dies by jump starting a 4, 6 or 8 cylinder engine. It will keep them connected all year long by charging tablets and smartphones one the go. It will come in handy on that dark and stormy night with its built-in emergency flashlight.

Best of all, it’s easy to tuck away until duty calls. The compact design and carry case safely stores the jump starter in the glove compartment.

Peter Millar Swim Trunks $85

Featured: Tangles, See Turtles and Flock of Flamingos

These are so much fun! If he’s got a warm weather vacay coming up (and I sincerely hope you’ll be joining him) a new pair of brightly-colored swim trunks would be a great gift to open up on a chilly winter morning!

The length of these by Peter Millar are pretty universal and you can’t beat the quality and value!!

Pendleton Camp Blanket $120

My grandfather had Pendleton’s ‘Glacier National Park’ blanket on his bed when stationed at sea on a battleship during World War II. Years later, that same blanket kept me warm at night during sleep away camp in the mountains of North Carolina.

This beautifully hued, soft-to-the-touch ‘Yakima Camp Blanket’ traces its roots to the original bedroll of choice for many a hunter and fisherman, and has been a must-have for fending off damp and chill for more than a century.

Pendleton crafts their warm and weighty blankets in their historic mill from yarns spun and dyed onsite. Finished by hand with classic whipstitching all around. Wool/cotton. Made in USA. 84″L x 66″W



Leather Cuff Link Box, Small $155

Choose Tan or Black

This is definitely something a man wouldn’t buy himself, but something he needs and will greatly appreciate for years and years to come.

These heirloom-quality Italian leather boxes will organize and protect his cuff links at home or while traveling.

Handmade and suede-lined, locks with key. Comes with a lift out protector pad. 15 compartments. Small: 5 5⁄8″ x 6 7⁄8″ x 2″. Other sizes available.


Crocodile Belt $285

Choose from Black, Cognac and Chocolate

I love a man in a crocodile or alligator belt. I think they look so handsome with everything from shorts to jeans to dress slacks!

These belts are excellent quality and you are NOT going to find a better value anywhere!!

Handmade of crocodile with saddle backing, each belt comes with two interchangeable buckles, one gold and one nickel. 1 ¼”w. Even sizes from 32 to 50; order one size larger than slacks waist size.
