2011 Guys' Holiday Gift Guide

What to Get the Boys in the Hood

rex ray dodocase!

No matter where he lives, we’ve found the perfect gift for that special dude in your life.

SoMa Start-Ups
Tech with a twist works wonders for brainiacs, like the Rex Ray Dodocase ($90) or Timbuk2’s Google Map messenger bag ($120), which comes with a handy bike map inside the flap.

f.s.c. barber!Mission Hipsters
He looks good without trying (or so you thought). Keep him selectively groomed with a shaving set ($45-$325) from F.S.C. Barber (available in-store only) or mustache pomade ($15) from Paxton Gate (although, beards are the new black). Pick up his uniform from Taylor Stitch in the form of an olive plaid shirt ($125).

Hayes Valley Guys
They don’t have to travel for serious style. Welcome Stranger’s in-house label of selvage denim and repurposed vintage tricks him out in no time (available in-store only).

chubbies!Marina Dudes
Highlight his gams (gorgeous from all that running on the Green) with Chubbies winter shorts ($50-$60). Surprise him with a night on the town at his restaurant of choice (The Tipsy Pig, duh) with a gift certificate from Treatful.

North Beach Boys
Show him the beef with Avedano’s meat boxes ($155-$205). Put him to work with hearty recipes from Kokkari’s cookbook ($40) — he can’t get enough goat — or Just Cook’s meat-centric spices ($8 each).

You’ll be in the Market for a good holiday.
