A cotton-cashmere sweater, for him to cozy up in and you to cozy up to. $60.
Trio of St. George gin, $30, with botanicals from Northern California plants, like Douglas fir, California bay laurel and coastal sage. “That’s the thing I love about gin – it’s not just booze,” Alex waxed on the other night. “When done right, you capture the spirit and foliage of where it’s from. This gin is the taste of Northern California.”
Knit tie from Alex’s favorite tailor, $95. (Or here for $49.) Sean Connery wore these in the early Bond films and they’re still cool. He can wear it anywhere with a jacket and jeans and not feel like he’s walking into a board meeting.
Coast to coast coin, $24, so you can DECIDE ONCE AND FOR ALL.
Fancy beef jerky, $23, which is always a slam dunk.
Playing cards, $16, for playing gin rummy on planes, on the beach, anywhere. Bonus: It doubles as your personal translator with common French and Spanish phrases.
The softest cashmere mittens, $60.
Cedarwood cologne, $98, with a sexy, woody scent.
Rich hot chocolate, $18, to sip while watching movies together at home.
A note saying how much you love him, since that’s all he really wants anyway.
