Thrillist and Jackthreads 2010 Holiday Gifts For Guys (From The Guys Perspective)


Vixens always have a hard time buying their guy gifts for the holidays, especially when it comes to fashion. If your guy is a simple dresser or even particular about his style, JackThreads has the five items that will have him fashionable and trendy. VIBE grabbed Jason Ross, founder of the men’s flash-salet, and Thrillist, the leading men’s digital lifestyle publication, to give readers an inside look at this year’s best bets for guy gifting! -Niki McGloster



1.) Gift Card

“It can be a nightmare figuring out what a guy wants or doesn’t already have. For a guaranteed bear hug of approval, cover your bases and send a Jackthreads Gift Card that comes directly via e-mail with a personalized sweet nothing from the sender. With discounts up to 80% off daily, JT gift cards pack some serious purchasing power, and with new sales launching daily, his options are literally endless.”

2.) A statement watch

“Men don’t often get a chance to accessorize, so buy him a time-piece that makes him feel less like his Dad and more like Drake. This silver G-Shock with hot pink backlighting is a perfect example. [It’s] expressive and functional.”

Casio G-Shock 6900 (Silver/Pink) – Retail: $110; JackThreads: $79.99

3.) Buffalo plaid

“Can’t deny your man a good-looking plaid shirt, it’s in our DNA. Buffalo plaid is especially popular this year, giving a rustic but hip spin to a classicaly versatile shirt that’s as appropriate for work as it is for game-day.”

4.) Something a girl can borrow, but give back (please!) 

“Don’t think we don’t notice when our boxers, comfy tees, and other girlfriend-favorite pieces go missing— you are the most likely culprit. This holiday, gift us with replacements like this “Play On” zip-up hoodie from Play Cloths. If nothing else, it’ll keep your dude cozy while he revisits the events leading up to his undergarments going missing.”


Play Cloths “Play On” Hoodie (Caviar) – Retail: $114; JackThreads: $55.99

5.) Utilitarian Boot 

“You know what they say about guys with big feet? They sure as hell don’t want boots lined with sheepskin! Buy a pair of masculine leather utilatarian boots for your main squeeze, so he’s not walking around looking like a sorority girl. When he unwraps these, his reaction will be anything but “ugg”.
