Gift Guide: The Dude

Seems like we all agree on something: the hardest person to shop for is a man. I shared an Instagram post asking people to tell me who they struggled to shop for and almost everyone said "my dad" or "my husband." Here's my gift guide of favorites for the dudes in your life!

From the Ground Up Socks

Socks seem like a cop out but not when they are From the Ground Up Socks. These are my favorite socks of all time. I wear mine hiking, skiing, under my booties, and I wear my compression socks on long runs! My friend is a nurse and she swears by the compression socks. FTGU socks are in the man category but they are not ONLY for men.)

Ugly Yellow House

We have places to go now and some people have forgotten how to dress. Help them out with these unique and fun handmade bowties from Ugly Yellow House. If they have a pet, they can get matching bowties!


The RSVLTS have the best shirts of all time. Shop button downs designed after classics like Star Wars, Toy Story, Home Alone, Sandlot and a million others! Not a button down guy? There’s bathing suits, tees, hoodies, hats, ties, and women’s clothing!


Alair is a gift shop located in West Seattle full of EVERYTHING YOU WILL EVER NEED FOR GIFTING and luckily you can shop from anywhere. Some of my favorite gifts for men available at Alair are the Pendleton Notebook, the BRO MASK, and the Washington Mountain knife!


No matter the type of drinker they are you'll find something for him at BruMate. Loves his water? The ReHydration bottle is my favorite water bottle of all time. Loves his wine? Shop wine tumblers and winesulators (they hold an entire bottle of wine). Maybe he is outdoorsy and uses a cooler - they have a COOLER BACKPACK! Use code CM at checkout for 15% off!

Quit Bitching Coalition

A badass clothing line with an awesome message…Quit Bitching. I got one of the skull zip ups for my brother-in-law last Christmas and it became his favorite shirt!

Mocca Shots

The perfect gift for The Dude that's always on the go, loves to workout, or is super lazy and needs some energy! I personally have been using Seattle Gummy Company's Mocca Shots for almost two years! After finding out I was allergic to coffee beans I needed to find a caffeine replacement...after months of searching I finally found their gummy Mocca Shots! SGC also has Immunity gummies, Slumber Shots (for sleeping), beauty gummies, and more! These make a great stocking stuffer! Use code CMA for 15% off sale items

HOMS Seattle

Created by University of Washington punter, Race Porter, the collection is an ode to the importance of mental health. HOMS = Heart on my Sleeve and each shirt showcases three hearts; a full heart, a half-broken heart, and a broken heart. Their collection is full of men’s, women’s, and unisex gear. I shopped for my niece and cousin and they both LOVE their shirts!
