Money clips are a dime a dozen these days, made from all different kinds of materials. This money clip is a bit different though: it'll save your bacon. If you find yourself in a dicey situation, this money clip doubles a makeshift weapon, with an integrated finger hole.
Who wants to snack on a wimpy, grain-based granola bar? Well, fortunately there's a manlier alternative: The Epic All-Natural Meat bar. These bars are made with grass-fed animals and are gluten free (if that matters to you). Some of the manly combinations include Beef, Habernero and Cherry, Bacon, Bison and Cranberry, and Turkey, Almond and Cranberry.
A gift certainly not for the faint of heart, yet you're not buying a gift for the faint of heart, are you?
If you're buying a gift for someone into coffee, this is the gift. Using the AeroPress is arguably the best way to make coffee or espresso, depending on what you're trying to make. The technique uses total immersion and gentle pressure to make really rich-tasting coffee, without all the acidity of normal coffee.
Use it to make espresso, iced coffee, and it's also a great travel coffee maker, as it comes with a travel bag.
Nobody wants to find themselves in the gray area where you've had something to drink, but aren't sure if you should be driving. The BACtrack Element Professional Breathalyzer is here to help. Just blow through the mouthpiece and get an alcohol level reading in seconds.
If you're too tipsy to find the mouthpiece, than you probably shouldn't be driving anyway.
Let's say that the Zombie Apocalypse is actually coming. Make sure your loved-one is well prepared with this 3-Day Survival Kit. Water, food, warmth, lighting, matches, tools and basic first aid kit. It's guaranteed for 5 years of storage life too.
The Gerber Downrange Tomahawk with Molle Compatible Sheath is more than just eye candy. Coupled with the 3-Day Zombie Survival Kit, you're now sitting pretty when the Zombie Apocalypse is in full swing. Tear through drywayll, doors... anything. The handle has a pry bar as well.
There's nothing wrong with giving straight Knob Creek to your loved one. However, if you want to go the extra mile, try the label maker. Create custom labels and send them to your friends. Hurry though, you'll need to make your label before December 9th in order to ensure it's received by Christmas.
This is the Cadillac of coffee brewers. It has a unique shower-head design to completely saturate all the grounds evenly, and comes with an awesome stainless steel carafe that keeps your coffee warmer much longer than the traditional glass carafes.
Bring back the good 'ol days when the term "disposable razor" didn't exist. Custom Shaving has plenty of straight edge razors, soaps and shaving accessories from a time when shaving was an art form.
Custom Shaving is a good friend of Gentlemint, and a great company to support.
Sinatra could always be found with a glass of Jack in his hand, claiming it was "a gentleman's drink". Today, limited quantities of Sinatra Select are bottled and distributed at select retail locations. It's a 90 proof whiskey, smooth and bold in character like Sinatra himself.
This is a manly soap, destined to clean even the dirtiest man without causing him to smell like daises and chocolate afterwards. It's a hearty blend that they've been using since, well, 1851. (Or the soap was made in 1851, we're not sure. We're hoping that's not the case.)
Either way, it's a convenient way to shower whilst keeping your hands free. We approve.
I imagine this as a product that James Bond probably would have wanted. Stylish vintage cuff links that can start a fire or light a smoke, even when you're dressed to the nines. They're tiny too, clocking in at under an inch in size.
Practical? No way. But that's not the point, is it? Just remember to remove the cuff links before actually lighting anything...
The always-quotable Ron Swanson (played by Nick Offerman) is no stranger to Gentlemint. So naturally we're in favor of anything written by Nick Offerman, like his chart-topping book Paddle Your Own Canoe: One Man's Fundamentals for Delicious Living.
The book features advice on how to grow a mustache, how to woo a woman, woodworking fundamentals, cooking meat... all the things a man should know how to do. In real-life, Offerman runs a wood shop when he's not filming episodes, which ratchets up his manliness by a factor of ten.
Who needs cubes when you have stainless steel shot glasses that are meant to be thrown into the freezer. Each glass is lined with a freezable gel that that you put in the freezer and make ice-less drinks.
Not only are they a cool technology, these glasses look pretty great too.
Become an urban bootlegger today with this nifty DIY resource for making yer own moonshine. The book gives a brief history of whiskey culture, and then a hearty portion of DIY tips, recipes and advice on how to make your own.
ReaganistaDesigns has some great posters for those who love their libations. And their prints are very reasonably priced, around $10 or so.
ReaganistaDesigns has been kind enough to give Reserve members a coupon, offering 10% off at checkout with the coupon code GENTLEMINT.
Want to embarrass the squirrels in your yard while nourishing them? This is the perfect item. The Big Head Squirrel feeder holds food inside of the squirrel, so when a squirrel wanders up and wants to chow down, he has to put his head in the feeder, making the squirrel appear to have a massive noggin. You're embarrassing the squirrel while nourishing it! Brilliant.
Perfect for anyone who things squirrels need a bit of humiliation from time to time.
Smores on the grill are a great little staple for those not wanting to deal with the hassle of starting a real fire. The Charcoal Companion helps you keep your hands free so that you can focus on other things while your smore is cooking. Not only that, the roasting rack includes a spacious warming platform to conveniently toast and melt the chocolate above the mallows.
Make your own hooch the right way, with your own personalized, handmade whiskey barrel from UncommonGoods. Age your spirits in an oak barrel that, because of it's smaller proportions, will age up to 10 times faster. Turn the barrel and taste the contents weekly (or more if need be ;) ), and then when it reaches the perfect flavor, pull it straight from the barrel.
