We know you’ve already googled ‘best gift ideas’, ‘gifts for men’ and the like, to death and found impractical, uber-expensive ideas you know you can’t use. We’re here to rescue you! We came up with a list of inventive, niche ideas that will appeal to the most manly of men, and a list of stores you could go to get ‘em. 

1. Leather Bomber Jacket

We start with our favorite - the funky, never-out-of style leather bomber jacket. Being funky, we meant genuine sheepskin leather jacket. We scoured the net looking for the perfect ones for you to gift and came up with the best store for it- Leather Cult. They have an absolutely swanky collection of leather jackets that, quite frankly, just look downright sexy.

Is he carrying a worn-out, scruffy laptop bag to work, just because it’s right there? Well, remedy that, and replace an item that is regularly used with a spruced up version, and someone is going to be super-grateful for a while! 

Four Horsemen, makes use of grain oil pullup leather and hand-dyed canvas. Sold yet? We are.
