Funnel Flasks from Vargo Outdoors

An engraved flask as a groomsman gift might be a cliché, but hear us out. This 8 oz. titanium flask from Vargo Outdoors has an integrated silicon funnel, so it’s easy to fill up and empty. It’s also made of material that won’t alter the taste of your groomsmen’s libation of choice. And yes, it’s engraveable, because engraved flasks are a cliché for a reason. They make great gifts.
Price: $75

For the Foodie


Mantry Box

Grown men cook. They don’t (always) order takeout or hit up their local bar & grill for dinner. If your friends are beginner cooks, Mantry Box will surely lure them into the kitchen. Every two months, they’ll get a box filled with fresh, artisan ingredients as well as easy-to-follow recipes. Each box is built around a theme such as Pizza Party or Tailgate Tour, and comes with a pamphlet about the products. The first shipment comes in a handmade wooden crate, a Mantry trademark.
Price: $60-$300
