A custom apron just in time for grilling season…

Give big “Saturdays are for the boys” energy with this gift. It’s made from solid brass and will hold their classy cigars, or just double as a decorative catch-all tray so they’ll always know where the keys are. ($99, Minted)

A three-piece towel set to upgrade their bathtime…

This towel set is one of our favorites for gifting (and getting). It comes with one hand towel, one guest towel, and one personal towel, all made from cozy organic cotton terry cloth. If you try to steal these every once in a while, he’ll understand. ($155, Ssense)

A hair trimmer you both can use...

This personal hair trimmer has ceramic blades that are designed to be used anywhere on the body without painful nicks, cuts, or burns. He can adjust the guard setting to give him anywhere from a close shave to a slight trim. It's waterproof, so it can be used in the shower, and fits comfortably in his hand. Once you see the tidy job it does, you'll be reaching for it too. ($74, Meridian)
