Sweatpants are the perfect clothing item for the enjoyment of sporting events – especially in the colder months of the year. They’re warm, stretchy (to accommodate the tons and tons of food you will consume in them), and nobody will question your fashion choice whether you are at home or tailgating. These ones, from legendary brand Champion and designer Todd Snyder, are some of the best.
Hockey is a violent sport, there’s no denying that. So what do they do with all the broken sticks? As it turns out, some of them get turned into grilling tools. These three-piece sets – which include tongs, a spatula, your choice of a brush or fork, and an optional bottle opener – feature handles made from real hockey sticks that were actually used on the ice.
If your giftee is stuck in city slush, throughout the holiday season, bring the winter weather into their home with candles that exude a snowscape. Each of these three different scents is inspired by three of Washington’s national parks. Olympic smells of woodsy red cedar and oakmoss, Rainier of pine needles with a hint of citrus, and North Cascades of season-appropriate peppermint and rosemary. The thoughtful candles are hand-poured in Washington with 100% vegan soy wax and perfume-quality oils.
A button-up shirt is arguably the most versatile item in a man's closet. While his white button-up looked fresh and crisp in the summer, his winter wardrobe requires something a little cozier. Enter the Mizzen+Main Palmetto Navy Check Flannel. With a style that feels at once rugged and contemporary, this shirt can take him from brunch to the boardroom without a hitch. Thanks to super soft, moisture-wicking, two-way stretch fabric he will feel as good as he looks.

In my unscientific but thorough survey of gift ideas for college students, I would say some 94.8 percent of all college students have, at some point, either received a copy of Dr. Seuss’s Oh, The Places You’ll Go or had it quoted at them. It’s a classic read, but as far as gifts for college students go, it’s clichéd — and you can give a practical, useful, and unique gift to a college student that’s better than that. To make things a little easier, I spoke with actual college students about the most memorable gifts they’ve ever received, the gear and gadgets they use every day, and the items on their wish lists to find the best gifts for college freshmen, gifts for college graduates, and all the students in between.
Buying the perfect gift sounds like a lot of pressure. But it's all in the way you approach it. Look at who you're buying for. What are they always talking about? What are their hobbies? Connecting your present to something you already know they like is the easiest way to get them something you can be sure they'll enjoy. From clothes and accessories to booze and tech gear, here's what to get him.
