We had lip balm in our stocking stuffers for men under $5 list, but this one is a bit nicer. It’s still petroleum-based, for the best moisture protection, but this one add a SPF25 sun protectant. SPF is the key ingredient recommended by the AAD for chapped lips because it protects and prevents future damage. Stay kissable this winter.

The toughest men and the toughest jobs need the toughest gear. Great boots are meant to last for years, but laces are weak and prone to wear and breakage. That’s where these come in. They are made of 550lb paracord and come with a lifetime warranty. You won’t be sorry.

You’re a long way from college shots of plastic bottle gin, but there’s no reason to give up on a good shot and chaser combo in moderation. This is a beautiful and inventive way to combine your shot and chaser in one motion. These are plastic to prevent any unfortunate slips, but glass versions are available, if, like me, that’s more your style.

Field notes have been written about in great depth on many sites, and for good reason. They are just the right size to carry with everywhere, and they are perfect for jotting down notes, todo’s, and ideas on the go. If, like me, you love to travel to more remote places, you may also want to consider the Field Notes Expedition edition. Waterproof and tear-resistant, these will hold up at least as well as you do.

This one is for the men who love beer, but know when to quit. These caps are a bit nostalgic for me: On the one hand, they remind me of the old bottlecaps candy that I used to look forward to on Halloween, and on the other, they remind me of college and party fouls. Remember all those floaters? You don’t buy cheap beer anymore, don’t throw it away. Just cap it. Also, if you consider yourself a bit of a home brewer.

When you have the right tool for the job, it takes your game to a whole new level. Take, for instance, these Old world, hammered copper mugs. Sure, you can mix vodka, gingerbeer, and lime in just about any container, but it will never have the same punch – the same classic weight – as when it’s served up in a copper mug. The good, old fashioned way.

Stocking Stuffers for Men Who Love Wine

I hear you. “A freaking sippy cup? I thought these were gifts for MEN!” Just because you’re a man doesn’t mean you’re not a klutz. In Atlanta there is a great music venue called Chastain Park. It’s outdoors, in a classic part of town, and they let you bring your own wine. The big kicker? It’s concrete, and concrete is bad news for glass. These cups let you slip in style without worrying about dropping your nice glasses all over the place. As an added bonus they are double wall insulated to keep your wine cool, and the lids keep nature out and wine in. Don’t be a baby – get a sippy cup.

Vinturi Wine Aerator ($27)

Why is it that all fancy “wine connoisseurs” aerate their red wines? According to Wine Spectator, aeration evaporates the undesireable bits, and oxidizes it to smooth and balance the natural flavors. Add a bit of class to your next bottle. Not only will you enjoy the process, but the wine will taste better too.

I know it’s getting chilly now, but in just a few short months it will be spring again, and you’ll be breaking out the whites to celebrate. White wines need to be chilled, but what if you don’t have a wine fridge? You could store your whites in the fridge, but that get precarious with all of the rolling, etc. Quickly get your wine down to drinkable with these chilling wands. Just uncork your bottle and dip this in your glass for a 5 minute soak, and enjoy your perfectly cooled glass of riesling. Bonus: white wines will stay cool longer, even in the summer heat. Really, you’re just planning ahead.
