Stylish Gay Men Want Stylish Gifts
Are you still desperately searching for that perfect gift for the stylish gay men in your life? We’re here to help!
If you’re Jewish, you’re SOL. But, hey, steal from the Christians. I eat rugelach. If you’re Christian, it’s getting down to the wire. Here’s a list of things that if I don’t have I want.
Below is a list of gifts we’ve received over the years or one’s I’d like to receive this year (hint, hint Mr. David Auten). Because we’re debt free and our advice is to not go into debt for the sake of the season, we’ve compiled this list of reasonably priced gifts for the husband, boyfriend, daddy and fruit flies, so indulge.
I quit shaving because it’s a small pain and facial hair’s fashionable. David, however, shaves and prefers to shave and save. Razor blades are damn expensive and a man with thick hair can dull a blade faster than a Latin mass. A four-pack of razors at Target goes for $12. $12 a month is $144 annually. The Dollar Shave Club’s 4X option is $6 per month, which is $72 per year. That’s 50 percent off with no Hail Mary’s.
A great gift idea for the well-traveled or office man is The Harvard Tie Grooming Kit. In this $19 stylishly and compact case, your well-manicured gay will have a shoe horn, nail clipper and collar stays conveniently packaged in a shoe brush. Last minute primp and prep happens often and this kit saves the day.
We normally diss magazine subscriptions, as most of what mags offer can be found online. However, there’s something enjoyable about flipping through stylishly bound paper rather than staring at a blue screen. For only $20, GQ is a nice addition to any coffee table. It offers great fashion, lifestyle and health advice. Best of all, leaving an issue of GQ on your coffee table is a passive aggressive way to give fashion advice to the straight men in your life.
Gay men love underwear so much it’s amazing there’s not a Victoria’s Secret for men. Although some would say Victoria’s Secret is as much for men as it is for women, but that’s another topic. We frown upon boxers and other old-man style underwear and appreciate a stylish well-fitted brief. Ah, straight boys, most women do, too. It’s time to ditch your grandpa’s style. For $22 a month, you can have a stylish pair of underwear sent to your man’s inbox each month.
We own several pairs of fun cufflinks. Not only do they look nice, they’re great conversation pieces. For the price of $50, these cufflinks will jazz up any suit or office attire. Plus, they’ll set your gay apart from the non-gay suits with their Donald Trump inspired cuff links. Your Super Bowl ring inspired cuff links don’t make up for the fact that you don’t have a Super Bowl ring.
David loves traditional Sazeracs. Some claim it’s America’s oldest cocktail. Truth be damned, they’re yummy. For this and any highball, regular ice cubes dilute the taste. For your stylish drinker, bigger is better, no pun intended. Large ice cubes and balls melt more slowly than traditional ice cubes and let your high-baller drink his slowly. For as little as $8 and $12 respectively, your favorite gay will impress his guests, cocks and hens alike.
Become a gay blogger to supplement your income and gift your man anything you want at any time.
A Moscow Mule in a glass doesn’t qualify. Sadly, too many establishments don’t get this. Your home establishment, shouldn’t be so sad either. For as little as $20, start your favorite gay with his own copper cup collection. By spring, he’ll be ripe for a fete of Moscow Mules.
8. Happy Socks
Men don’t have lots of leeway when it comes to style. Socks, however, are an exception. Bedazzle your gay with happy socks and they’ll be light in the loafers both literally and figuratively.
Ever find yourself in the blistering hot sun at Pride dying for a Corona Light with no bottle opener in site? Me, either, but never fail, for only $10, you can give your dehydrated gay this functional iPhone case to save their day.
My sister sent one of these to us before we jetted off on vacation last year. What seemed like a novelty is now a necessity. For just $24, your cabin seat becomes first-class with your own tonic, thimble-size jigger and travel size bar spoon. Ring the cabin bell for your first-class delivery of gin and you’re on vacation before liftoff.
11. Packing Cubes
For the well-traveled, organization is a must. For $35, you and your partner can keep your essentials, nonessentials and unmentionables organized so well no one has to die. These cubes go from fitting together tightly packed luggage to becoming a portable dresser in seconds. This makes every hotel your home.
What’s the point of gifting your gay travel items if they can’t afford to travel anywhere? Get them outta your hair like that gray with travel gift cards to destinations far and away. Nothing says, “Merry Christmas and I love you” like “Get the hell outta here!”
These are our twelve-holiday suggestions for the mo in your life. We hope these ideas will take some of the pain out of shopping for your insatiable gay. Happy holidays to you and all the stylish gay men in your life!
