Analyzing Anthropologie's Manly Gifts

I'm always at a loss as to what to get my husband for any occasion. In my mind, men seem to be so difficult to shop for. What do men like already? Tools? Gadgets? My husband is not a "fixer-upper" type, and he is not particularly into gadgets. What's left?

Based on Anthropologie's manly gift pickings (in a gift collection, entitled "He's The Man"), it seems that men have only three pleasures in life: alcohol, coffee and steak.

Oh yeah, there's that lone coffee-table book about Arctica for $125. I guess, frozen wastelands are very manly too...

A is for Alcohol, B is for Booze

But where will he keep the booze stuff? 
Why, they thought of everything!

What will he drink out of?

The Man in the life of an Anthro Woman is not only a heavy drinker, he also enjoys mixing his lady a cocktail of choice. So give him a gift that will keep on giving!

I have to tell you, the people who come up with these gifts know what men really want! It's a briefcase; it's a grill, it's a ....Portable Briefcase BBQ Grill. I came upon this at Uncommon Goods, and I just wanted to do you all a favor and put it right here for you. Notice the picture has no meat in it. I guess they didn't want to offend the vegetarian customers. You never know with these modern men. They might just long for a porta-grill to grill all those farmers market zucchinis.

Aren't women just so much easier to shop for? They like everything! Especially if it's shiny, expensive, and comes in small packages. No occasion necessary!

Happy Gifting!!!
