I tried to keep the audio brief, but a fourth cup of coffee made that impossible. I'm banking on your Holiday Cheer-induced indulgence. I also seem to have messed up the mic placement a bit, so apologies...
Many of the Gift Guides for Men I've seen this year have been for someone I have never met, so here are some items I have enjoyed that are also available for last-minute shipping.
(the listings that are not links can be found in the Amazon bar on the right column)
Victorinox Locking Swiss Army Knife. I carried a Swiss Army knife for years, until the non-locking blade almost took the end of a finger off. Now I'm carrying one again, with all those little tweezer and toothpick gizmos no other knife brings to the table.
Winter Work Gloves from Duluth Trading Company. Waterproof. Durable. Not sexy.
Tool Bag from Duluth Trading Company. A better gift for the person who will use it often.
The Orange Box. The best fun-for-dollar computer gaming package available now. Variety of first rate games means they will find something they like playing.
The America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook. Snobby and bossy, which is comforting to the inexperienced like myself.
A Cast Iron Pan. Unseasoned, because that's half the fun. And its for frying...how can you go wrong?
The Restraint of Beasts. A work of literature both dark and hilarious... just like holidays with family!
