Christmas Gift Guide 2021
We know buying gifts for men can be a huge challenge (and finding great gifts for men under $100 can feel downright impossible). What do you buy a guy who probably already has everything?
Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
Our 2021 Christmas Gift Guide includes high quality, thoughtful gifts for men, all priced under $100. Yes, really. This year’s gifts are timelyand classic; thoughtfuland practical. Simply put, they’re gifts any guy will love to receive.
What kind of man is on your list? Rugged and outdoorsy? Clean-cut and boardroom-ready? A little bit of both or somewhere in between? There’s something for any husband, boyfriend, dad, and son.
Let’s start with leather. Pro tip: it’s tough to go wrong with leather gifts for men, and there are plenty of options under $100.
Leather wallets are a classic for a reason: they make incredibly thoughtful gifts for men.
For the perfect blend of masculine, rugged leather with premium, long-lasting craftsmanship, choose a classic bifold or trifold wallet. Check out the Dakota Leather Bifold wallet for $84.95 in either lightsaddle tan or mediumchestnut brown, or theDenver Trifold Wallet (also $84.95) in a rich dark brown.
Money clips and slim ID wallets are the perfect gift for the man who prefers something slimmer or lower profile than a traditional wallet. A leather magnetic money clip is rugged, understated, and secure. The Dakota money clip is $39.95 and comes insaddle tan orchestnut brown. (This one comes in so far under $100, you could tuck a gift card to his favorite brewery inside to put this gift over the top.)
Whether you call it a shaving kit, dopp kit, travel kit, toiletry bag—you know they all mean the same thing, but they are not all the same. Quality matters. So, if your guy has been using a cheap pouch (we’ve seen guys still using quart ziploc bags—come on, now) to hold his toiletries and travel essentials, surprise him with a much-needed upgrade.
This dark brown,full grain leather dopp kit is built to last and has a nylon/polyester interior for easy cleaning. With a carry handle and sturdy zippered closure, it is just the right size for a man’s toiletry and shaving essentials. No frills required; the premium leather and timeless craftsmanship is all the style this kit needs.
This may not be leather, but it had to make the list. Waxed canvas is a great alternative to fine leather and ages nicely over time in much the same way. This Dakota Reservewaxed canvas dopp kit in field khaki is basically a finely crafted bottomless canvas hole. (In the very best way.) Designed to protect and carry a man’s toiletries when he travels, this is a practical gift that really goes above and beyond.
Add the warmth of vintage craftsmanship to some of his high tech stuff.
Maybe an Apple Watch isn’t in the budget (or maybe you already bought him one?), but a rugged leather Apple Watch strap makes a fun, unique gift. These vintage inspired straps are currently on sale, coming in well under $100 and available indark brown andsaddle tan.
Have a photographer on your list? Give him a premium leather camera strap he can trust and will love to wear. Choose a strong leather strap made of durable cowhide, stitched together with thick nylon for extra strength and includes extra padding around the neck. The craftsmanship on this one might just outshine his expensive camera—it comes in saddle tan and is currently on sale for 53% off, putting it under $50!
Even the most simple items become special when they’re thoughtfully made and thoughtfully chosen.
Full grain leather keychains and luggage tags are an inexpensive way to add a bit of luxury to the mundane without making a fuss. You can even pair a Denver leather keychain inautumn brown ordark briar ($16.95) with aDenver leather luggage tag ($24.95) in the matching color for a thoughtful bundle.
Whether he keeps a notebook for his personal musings or for old-school note taking in the boardroom, a full grain leather journal cover makes even the simplest notebook feel special.These premium leather journal covers and field notes covers come in multiple sizes and colors.
Thoughtfully chosen gifts of well-made clothing are extremely practical, and can still be fun and meaningful. Below we’ve curated some of our favorite options under $100.

Is it a shirt or is it a jacket? Yes. The shirt jac is a great option for the guy who doesn’t love to wear a coat, but still appreciates a warm layer to ward off the chill. This cotton twill shirt jac comes ingreen,navy, orbrown.
