Not exclusively for dudes, but five gifts worth considering for the man in your life.

N.B.: To make sure we’ve got everyone on your list covered, see all of our gift guides to date in our House Gifts section.

Above: Channeling the rugged Californian wilderness, Juniper Ridge’s John Muir Trail gift box includes Wild Plum Campground Cologne and Yuba Trail Crew Soap; $112 from Juniper Ridge.

Above: For the aspiring race car driver: The Limit, by Michael Cannell, “tells the story of Phil Hill–a lowly California mechanic who would become the first American-born driver to win the Grand Prix–and, on the fiftieth anniversary of his triumph, brings to life a vanished world of glamor, valor, and daring.” The Limit is $17.15 at Amazon.

Above: We’ve been fans of Joey Roth’s speakers for a while now; those looking to amp up their sound will be pleased to know of his newly launched Subwoofer. According to Roth, the ceramic subwoofer “is neither boomy nor aggressive, but a balanced completion of the ceramic speakers”; $695 from Joey Roth. N.B. Bay Area shoppers, Roth will be debuting the speakers at our Holiday Market this coming Saturday, 8th December.

Above: Deck Towel’s Theo is a posh beach towel of sorts made of striped linen; it works equally well as a bed throw or as a wrap on the beach; $200 from Deck Towel.

Above: This Canvas Dopp Kit; is a well-priced modern take on the classic leather kit; $20 from West Elm’s Market Collection.
