Duluth Pack Leather Valet ($50). When my coworkers come back from lunch, they take their wallets, keys, Blackberries and change out of their wallets and toss them into a heap, on their desks. This leather valet works as a catch-all to keep all of their valuables in one place. No more looking under stacks of paper for the essentials, now they’re all in one place.
DODO Case for iPad/Kindle ($60). I have this case, and I love it. It’s tough enough to take a little bit of a beating. It holds my iPad securely. And it looks like a Moleskine notebook, so it’s discreet.
Tervis Tumbler ($13-$20). My coworkers must drink 50 glasses of water, soda and iced tea per day. This plastic tumbler keeps the drinks cold and limits condensation, so no more drips and cup rings on important documents. And you can personalize the tumblers with college logos, military insignia, or your own photos (campaign tumblers?).
Vinturi Wine Aerators ($39). Do you have an oenophile in your office? You know one of those snobs who actually travels just to taste wine? Buy them this aerator to help their favorite wines reach their full potential.
Pinnacle Golf Balls ($15). Does your Boss love golf? Buy him a box of American made golf balls, and maybe a trip to the range or two. Because for some of the men I know, the best thing about the New Year is that there that much closer to being on the greens.
If you have any other gift ideas (American made or otherwise) for male coworkers, please share them in the comments. And if you’re a guy, please give us some insight into what gifts men like!
