We’re guessing you have at least one person in your circle who enjoys a drink. And yet…they probably haven’t discovered the wonders of the hip flask.

It’s a surprisingly useful item for the next time they find themselves in a frustratingly liquor-free setting, whether it’s a campsite, a cookout or a school play. And most of the ones you find will carry along a fair measure of old school charm, whether it’s this Filson model or the vintage plaid and woodgrain versions you’ll find online. Either way, no one’s ever sorry to see you bring one out, which makes for a pretty good gift.
