For those of you who were with us last year, you might remember our Art of Manliness x Huckberry Holiday Store. It was such a big hit that we’ve brought it back again for another holiday season. But this time we’ve doubled the fun, and added a gift shop for women, as a service to our fellow men who have a hard time finding unique and cool gifts for the ladies in their lives.

The AoM x Huckberry Holiday Gift Shop is your one-stop Christmas resource for the fellow manly men in your life and the cool women who love them. Ready to get your Christmas shopping done in one fell swoop, as well as win something for yourself or a loved one? Keep reading.

Men’s Holiday Gift Shop

For the Art of Manliness x Huckberry Gift shop I handpicked nearly 50 items that I thought an Art of Manliness man would enjoy seeing under the Christmas tree this December 25th, and the gents at Huckberry worked with many of the brands in order to offer AoM readers exclusive discounts on their products. Use the AoM x Huckberry store to do all your Christmas shopping for the men in your life and forward it along to your family so they know what to get you this year. My favorite items in this year’s store? The K-bar USMC combat knife and the Sydney Hale candles. These are the only candles I’ve ever found that I will gladly buy again and again — fantastic, manly scents. There are tons of other incredible Made in America items, including a one-of-a-kind duffel backpack, Made in the USA combs, and handsome wallets made from vintage baseball leather (if you want one of those wallets, better act fast — they’re selling like hotcakes!). To see the other items in the store, sign-up for Huckberry to gain access.

Women’s Holiday Gift Shop

Every year when we put out our gift guides for men, I get a bunch of emails from guys who say, “Brett, it’s easy for me to find things that I want to get for Christmas, but the hard part is finding a great gift for the women in my life. Can you help?” To be honest, because I’m immersed in all things manly most of the time, I was pretty lost when it came to finding cool gifts for the ladies too. So this year, Kate and I, along with the guys and gals at Huckberry, put our heads together to curate a shop that will make shopping for the special women in your life easy. No need to default to scented body lotion this year — in the shop you’ll find a great selection of classy and useful gifts bound to delight your gal. Kate’s picks from the store? “A hard copy of Darling Magazine — this website and magazine is the closest thing I’ve found to an Art of Manliness for women. And the Haptic Lab quilts — your gal will loving having a map of her favorite city stitched to a cozy quilt. There will also be some bracelets added next week that say, “I want to have adventures with you,” and “Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose,” that I love and hope Brett gets for me. Hint, hint.” To see the other items in the store, sign up for Huckberry to gain access.

The AoM x Huckberry holiday shops close on December 19th.

Shipping for items from either the men’s or women’s shops is free until 3 pm PST today!

I could really use one of those PROOF NY 3/4 coats (coal), thanks!

2075 lady brett November 30, 2012 at 9:43 pm

oh, dear. that is a lovely selection: i am fascinated by darling; i love the switchblade look of the steak knives, but don’t need them; i love the lumen lamps, but suspect an oil lamp is not a good addition to a 3 toddler house; i adore the pride and prejudice print (one of my very favorite books plus typography fun? oh my), but haven’t anything to do with it.

i think i should have to settle on the speakeasy perfume, purely out of curiosity (and the loveliness of the bottle and name).

2076 Mike P November 30, 2012 at 10:10 pm

I would like to win the 510 moleskin notebook cover to give as a gift to my father. He always has a notebook on him and nothing would make it manlier than a leather cover.

2077 Mike P November 30, 2012 at 10:14 pm

I would like to win the SF quilt for my soon-to-be fiance. We just moved from San Francisco and she misses it terribly. I think this quilt would be a wonderful gift to remind her of the place we met.
