I know I am a little over the top with my “rules” for the manly man, but this is just one woman’s opinion, and here I bring you one woman’s perfect Etsy.com gift list for him. My “him”; the manly man.

Copper is on the manly man list of perfect material to make anything out of. I love this money clip that can double as a book mark. And it is made by a JET! There are also lots of lovely things in Adroit Jewelers that a manly man could buy his girlfriend/wife for the holidays, (Frank). Fact: Most manly men know the current market price of copper piping on any given day.

This is on the list because it looks like it smells good and leathery and we all need a phone case.

This manly man briefcase is hand-stitched by LusciousLeatherNYC
About the only jewelry my manly man would wear is a wedding ring. And I cannot imagine one more perfect than this one by our own Smacky. It is has a masculine aesthetic, it is made to last forever, and it is affordable; which, in my case, is important because my manly man would most likely lose his now and then, and need a replacement or three. I need not worry, however, because my man will not be wearing this any time soon. We have only been together eight years. Apparently we still have to get to know each other.

Cufflinks. Oh I do love cufflinks on a man. They have been a manly staple since before "metro-sexual" men's grandparents were born. Somehow, cufflinks get away with not being jewelry. Something about a man in French cuffs…

This perfectly manly pair is made by the shop "Metalicious" on Etsy, where the manly man can find many other suitable items. And lots for his lady too.

If you go with a traditional gift of socks, look no further. These handmade beauties look so comfy and warm (even though manly men are not supposed to feel the cold), and they are made in Russia, an epicenter of manly men.

The manly man is the picture of efficiency. Left to his own devices, my man would use a bar of Dial soap to shower; and as deodorant, as shampoo, (well, he is bald, but for where his hair used to be), and to wash the dishes. Maybe even laundry in a pinch. Its funny, he always smells great!
So this, is perfect for the efficient manly man:
A belt/bottle opener:

Man-décor, please don’t get carried away giving his cave “the feminine touch”! No tchotchkes. No cafe curtains. However, if you are compelled to spruce his place up, try some vintage details or industrial design pieces. Etsy is filled with these items. At a shop called Hoof and Antler, you cannot go wrong.

A chunky cedar phone dock will fit into any manly man decor and cedar smells great with Dial soap.
