Classic duffle bag with leather details

Topo Designs Duffle Bag, $129 at the Dwell Store

Topo Design’s classic duffle is at once outdoorsy and streamlined. The bag is made in Colorado and can be used for a range of purposes from weekend camping trips to urban commuting.

When choosing a gift this year, consider giving a design with a story, like these Made in America products. We love the classic Duffle Bag from Topo Designs. The entire bag is made in Colorado, and includes thoughtful details like natural leather lash tabs, interior pockets and a coated nylon pack cloth liner. The company’s mission is to capture an outdoor spirit while maintaining a streamlined aesthetic for urban appeal. We’re confident that many audiences, from outdoorsmen to city commuters, will approve this versatile bag. The duffle is super functional, and can be packed with other presents—like the sleek Titanium Bottle Opener from Brooklyn’s Pat Kim Designs and the Leather Bifold Wallet from L.A.’s Otaat —to create an awesome gift for a lucky guy on your list.

If you want to make a statement with your holiday gifting, the Shuffleboard Table from Chandra will do just that. Made of solid ash wood, this table is entirely handcrafted in Atlanta, Georgia. Four craftsmen take between five and six weeks to construct each table. The table includes an ash playing top that is finished with a glossy lacquer finish for a smooth glide. Available in three custom finishes ranging from the natural-looking white finish to a modern black finish, each shuffleboard is also hand stained in Atlanta. The table includes custom hand-upholstered leather gutters and inlayed padded cushions to keep sound to a minimum. Even the aluminum pucks are American-made and include a limited lifetime warranty.

This sculptural table elevates the classic pub game into a work of art. Where you might expect someone to put a shuffleboard table in a basement or garage space, Chandra’s table is sophisticated enough to take residence in a living room or hold court in an upscale rec room. The innovative leg design offers a stunning visual detail that proves that modern design can be lighthearted—game playing and high design are not mutually exclusive.

This Shuffleboard Table will not only make a memorable gift this year, but will also inspire years of fun. We love gifts that keep on giving, and we’re sure the men on your holiday list will too!
