Our golden rule for gift-buying is to seek out items your friends want but will never buy for themselves—either out of guilt or uncertainty or plain old retail anxiety. Find the right item (possibly over here) and you’ll be solving a problem they never could have tackled on their own.
By now, we bet you’re looking for a gift or two, so we thought we’d open up our archives for any last minute seekers. A tie may not be breaking much new ground, but a well-kept notebook or a well-bound book is always enough to raise a few eyebrows, especially if you choose the right one.
With that in mind, we present: the Kempt gift guide, a handful of very good ideas for any refined gentleman on your list. And you’ll have just enough time to get them to your door for the main event.
