Holiday Gifts That Match Your Mate

You know his type

ernest alexander!

Too bad your guy’s online dating profile didn’t include what he’d like under the tree. His preferences decoded:

Mr. Connected
He’s plugged in 24/7, but that grungy iPad case has to go. Upgrade him with Ernest Alexander’s dapper waxed-canvas case ($90).

Homebody Hipster
A Hugo Guinness lino print of a pair of black-rimmed specs ($480) will look rad on your honey’s wall — almost as cool as the Warby Parkers he rocks.

Smooth Mover
Scratchy stubble? Not where you plant your kiss, thanks to Baxter of California’s posh 1-2-3 Shave Kit ($70), which includes After Shave Balm, Super Close Shave Formula, and a luxurious badger brush.

will leather goods!The Road Warrior
He hates that lame duck canvas bag he’s been toting for years. Do him a solid and hook him up with a splurge-worthy Oaxacan-inspired duffel ($675, available by special order at Mario’s) from Eugene-based Will Leather Goods.

9-to-5 Stand-Up Guy
He wouldn’t be caught dead in gym socks with slacks, but his black go-tos are getting a bit old. Add a colorful pair by Richer Poorer ($12) to spice up his sock drawer.

Craft Beer Buzzer
Sir Sips-a-Lot is passionate about local brews. Sign him up for a year’s subscription to Beer West magazine ($20). The Portland-based pub covers craft and local beers, indie breweries on the West Coast, plus food and travel.

kuhlman!Dapper Dude
Fashion-conscious fellas love anything from Portland Pendleton Collection, but this Wallowa cardigan ($305) is particularly enchanting. Bonus: You can swipe it from his closet.

Mountain Man
Help him get in gear for snow season with DaKine’s deluxe snowboard tuning kit ($60), which includes everything he needs to keep his board in tip-top shape.

Match(.com) that.
