Itunes Store or Google Play Store Gift Cards – $10 and up

Cash can feel impersonal and something as simple as an Itunes or Google Play gift card is a way better option. No matter what the situation is, the recipient is always going to love this one.

 

 

How To Store Your Clothes

In addition to proper cleaning and washing, keeping your clothing in good shape and looking great has as much to do with how you store your garments it as it does with how you wear them.  Proper storage is also key to extending the life of your clothes, whether it be investment purchases like a leather jacket or a suit or something as simple as a t-shirt.

So, in this episode of 2 Minute Tuesday we’re answering a viewer question about how to properly store your clothing and all the tools you need to outfit your closet.

 

 

Use The Right Hangers

They help maintain clothes and keeps them organized.  We recommend jacket hanger for all types of jackets, from suits to bomber jackets.  The shape helps support the jacket’s shoulders and structure.

We recommend clip hangers for any and all pants and felt hangers for all types of shirts and sweatshirts.

Hanger Picks:

Jacket Hangers

Wood Hangers

Velvet Hangers

Clip Hangers 1

Clip Hangers 2

 

Hang Your Pants Vertically or Folded Once

Hanging your pants vertically with a clip hanger is the ideal way since it will help hang out wrinkles.  Simply attach the clip to the bottom hem of your pants and then hang.  But, folded over once on a proper hanger works if you’re limited on closet space.

Always Fold Your Sweaters

You never want to hang your sweaters as it can damage the delicate material.  Fold them and store them in a drawer or in the closet and don’t forget cedar blocks for keeping moths away.

Holiday Gifts under $200 for Him

This season, I wanted to break up my annual gift guides by price and gender, so in this one, I want to talk about the gifts under $200 for the various men in your life. 

Essentials Box

My all-time favorite company for ties and pocket squares has this great Essentials Box that includes ties, pocket squares, socks as well as tie bars & collar stays for the man who likes to class it up or needs a little help in the accessories department.

$165 – The Tie Bar Essentials Box

Minimalist Pocket Knife

Well-designed, minimalist and with a simple construction with many handle options makes this one a winner in my book.

$99 – $179 – Grovemade Minimalist Knife

Clear Ice Cube Maker Kit

For someone into cocktails, this is a great addition to their bar that they might not have. It’s easy to give glasses, stirrers, shakers or booze, but a clear ice cube maker kit is a cut above the standard items one would give.

$80 – Neat Ice Cube Kit

Leather Dopp Kit

Like I mentioned in my Accessory Essentials Series, this dopp kit is fan-freaking-tastic and I’ve gifted it many times over the years.

$130 – Jack Spade Dopp Kit

Wireless Earbuds (iOS & Android)

The AirPods are truly the best wireless earbuds available right now (for iOS users) and the Jaybird Run are equally good for Android.

$159 to $265 – Apple AirPods or Jaybird Run

Best Backup or Rucksack

I’ve gone over the best backpacks or rucksacks before, and my top choices are definitely pricey, but for an everyday, go-anywhere, do-anything bag, this one is my top choice. I love that it comes in different colors in case your recipient may prefer something other than black.

$135 – Aef Fit Pack 2

Holiday Gifts Under $50 For Him

This season, I wanted to break up my annual gift guides by price and gender, so in this one, I want to talk about the gifts under $50 for the various men in your life. 

Keyring Multi-Tool

Every man will find this handy, regardless of his age or occupation. I like it because it easily fits on a keyring and is super convenient.

$35 – Leatherman Squirt PS4

Pocket Pen

Well designed, pocketable, and something most men don’t think about it but use more often than they’d think.

$20 – Fisher Space Pen

 

Cigar Pack

A humidity sealed pack with two cigars, a cutter, and matches for the aficionado, or those who’ve yet to be initiated into the cigar world. You can pick these up as either single purchases, or a part of a monthly subscription. Dorian has spoken to the CEO a few times and has sampled a few of their packages and says they’re top-notch.

$30 – Cigar Pack (2 cigars)

 

Leather Keryring

This unique leather keyring will keep up to 7 keys all organized and silent within its cowhide leather sheath in your pocket. Like I mentioned in my Accessory Essentials Series, use quality items and you’ll thank yourself (or the man you give this to will thank you, hopefully).

$45 – Orbitkey Keyring

 

Nose & Ear Hair Trimmer

It’s one of those things that most men don’t think of buying for themselves but will use way more often when they actually have it in their grooming kit. It seems weird, but a lot of clients have commented about it being one of the best sleeper-hit style gifts they’ve ever received.

$20 – Panasonic Trimmer

 

Classic Watch

Beautiful, classic styling and a great price – you can’t go wrong. I’ve covered this and many, many other watches in my best men’s watches guide.

$35 – Timex Weekender Watch

 

Braided Charging Cables

Charging cables can be a boring necessity, or they can be a classy addition to a man’s Everyday Carry. I’d suggest getting a 10ft cable – the extra length comes in way more handy than you’d think.

$10 to $50 – Native Union

 

High Quality Socks

One might think this is a boring choice, but if you haven’t tried the best men’s socks yourself, you’d be dead wrong. Give the gift of amazing comfort and a lifetime warranty with these awesome socks.

$10 to $40 – Darn Tough Socks

 

Coffee & Espresso Maker

Hailed as one of the best ways to make a single serving coffee, I’ve gifted this to quite a few people who are into coffee and it’s been a success every time.

$25 – Aeropress Coffee & Espresso Maker
