If your man has run out of room for socks and has no need for yet another nine iron, maybe it’s time to think about a different kind of Christmas gift. The team at Mosaic Makers Collective has compiled a list of female-made gifts for the man in your life. These gifts are all husband, boyfriend, brother, and father-approved!
The 8 best gifts for men in 2020
Luchador Azul Shirt – $48
If your man loves watching lucha libre wrestling, this whimsical Luchador Azul Shirt from Mi Cielo is a perfect gift. The felt for each design is hand-cut and hand-stitched in Paradise, TX for a one-of-a-kind present you won’t find anywhere else.
Geo Planter – $18
As the name suggests, Botanicool is helping first-time plant parents with aesthetically-pleasing planters. Add an air plant with this Geo Planter for a gift that will look great on his desk or by the bathroom sink (so he remembers to water it every once in a while).
Cord Keeper – $18
Ladies have the benefit of keeping cords at the bottom of our purse. For the guy whose phone is always running out of juice, Weather & Story created the Cord Keeper. This unique keychain keeps cords and headphones in one place while avoiding tangles.
Bat Colony Etched Rocks Old Fashioned Glass- $15.99
Inspired by the bat colony in Austin, TX, this etched old fashioned glass is a fang-tastic gift for UT grads, Austinites, or any man who has a penchant for the winged creatures of the night– and old fashions! Monster Dance Designs hand etches these glasses right here in Texas.
Good in the World double sided Journal – $30
Love the look of leather, but cringe when you think of its origins? North to South Designs created a brand new line of vegan leather journals you can feel good about! We love the “Not all who wander are lost” journal for the man who loves to record and reflect on his outdoor adventures.
Outdoorsy Shirt – $30
The cure for 2020 is time outside– and thankfully Texas delivers great weather, endless hiking, and natural beauty. Celebrate the great outdoors with this as they are. Outdoorsy tee. We promise it’s one of the softest shirts you’ll ever feel! (Just let your man wear it once or twice before you steal it.)
Drink Local Bottle Opener – $12
Pair North to South Designs’s stainless steel and vegan leather Drink Local bottle opener with a 6-pack from our neighbors at Oak Cliff Brewing for a local gift he’ll love!
You’re Pretty Rad Card – $6
Sometimes, words can be the greatest gift of all. Maybe you’ve decided not to exchange gifts this year because money’s a little tight or you’re saving for a house or vacation. The Avera Boutique’s You’re Rad Card is the perfect non-gift for the man whose love language is words of affirmation!
We hope this list of handmade products by local female artists inspires you as you shop for the men on your list!
