Gift Guide: For the Menfolk by Buckets and Spades

gift guide for men

A good men’s lifestyle blog are few and far between, but oh have I got a good one for you! Buckets and Spades is a regular read. 
Mat is England based and has extremely good taste. Gabe actually has his blog bookmarked in Flipboard up there with the art of manliness. I hope you all will enjoy his blog as much as we do! 

I had to ask Mat’s help in rounding up a good gift guide for the menfolk who can sometimes be the trickiest to buy for. Here are his top picks (you will love his English lingo)….take it away Mat!

1 – The Dania Bottle Opener is one of the nicest I’ve seen this year. It’s simple, lightweight and it opens the nicely liquid known to man.
2 – Northern Goods Co. Key Clip. I had to include this because it’s my favorite piece from our own small accessories line. The Key Clip is handmade in our studio in Lancashire, England and has been made from materials sourced from round the USA and UK. Attached your keys and wallet, you’re good to go.
3 – No Bar Fights (please)! Tanner Goods makes stuff and they make stuff good, these leather beer mats are at the top of my Christmas wishlift. They’ve been designed in partnership with Portland State Uni School of Art & Design.
4 – I’ve always been into the idea of indoor sports, if this Charlie Noble Bat & Ball set landed under my tree I’d be arranging tournaments like there’s no tomorrow. The balls are manufactured by the oldest ball maker in the UK.
5 – Put your furry friend into a proper headlock with this Mustache Wrestler Wax. Bully!
6 – Designed with both climbers as much as it is for city folk, Topo backpacks are the best you’ll find on the market. Made by super cool folk in Denver.
7 – Safety is first, but when safety looks so good you’ll want to sup up your bike with a hundred of these like a crazy man. This Seafoam Green lock light is Bookman’s limited edition colour.
8 – Everyone like a cup of tea or coffee right? Well go easy on that and get right on the eggnog this Christmas, you can be nice and discreet with these Best Made Steadfast Enamel Cups. Double dipped in enamel for extra long life.
