I don’t know about you, womanistas, but the guys on my Christmas list are usually left until the end of my shopping adventures because, well, guys can be tricky to find gifts for. So this year I didn’t waste any time and went straight to the experts for ideas—Bobby Rossi and Josh Keller, co-founders of Headlines & Heroes, the ultimate online authority in men’s gifts. Their site curates the best gadgets and gear on the whole worldwide web, and they even have Gift Guides on their site that break things down based on men’s interests, like the outdoors, technology, sports, and more. Here’s a taste of Bobby and Josh’s favorite gifts to give this holiday season.

Brooklyn Brew Shop Beer Making Kit: ($40.00) Thanks to the Brooklyn Brew Shop Beer Making Kit, if you can boil water and make oatmeal, you can make your own beer in the comfort of your own home or apartment. That’s right, it’s that easy. The kit gives you everything you need to make a delightful Everyday IPA without ever leaving your kitchen. Though it seems too convenient to be true, Brooklyn Brew Shop’s handy kit stays true to traditional methods used in homes in breweries for centuries, and uses the same fresh, whole ingredients used by the best craft breweries in the world, making the end result professional grade brew. Cheers!
MONOPOLY: The Godfather Edition: Now your guy can relive the mafia childhood he always wanted with MONOPOLY: The Godfather Edition. The MONOPOLY game’s traditional houses and hotels have been turned into Hideouts and Compounds, and Boardwalk and Park Place have been replaced with the Corleone Long Island Home and Corleone Lake Tahoe Estate. The rules are different too (the Family wouldn’t play by the regular ones), and so are the game pieces—you can play with a cannoli, a dead fish, a tommy gun, or a horse head…because it wouldn’t be The Godfather without the horse head, would it?
2-in1 Cigar Holder and Flask: ($28.00) Now he can enjoy two of his favorite pastimes—puffing and nipping—with one elegant item: the 2-in1 Cigar Holder and Flask. Flask on one side, cigar holder on the other, it’s just about all the manhood he can carry. The Cigar Flask can be engraved for personalization, and it arrives gift-boxed, making it the perfect men’s gift.
“The Wolf of Wallstreet”: This book is based on the true story of the author, Jordan Belfort. Now also a major motion picture starring Leonardo DiCaprio, it tells the story of Belfort in the 90’s, when he literally made thousands of dollars a minute, and did his best to spend it almost as fast as he earned it. The obscene amount of money he made fueled the binge and spend lifestyle that ultimately led to him sinking a 170-foot yacht, crashing a jet and running up a $700,000 hotel tab. This incredible and at times hilarious book documents it all, taking you along Belfort’s wide ride to the top, and the crash that inevitably came after it.
400oz Chrome Tablet Holder: ($140) Handcrafted from high-grade resin in none other than Detroit, this badass tablet holder is compatible with just about any tablet device on the market, and it can serve all your viewing needs, whether they’re portrait or landscape. Your new Skull Tablet Holder will arrive neatly tucked away in a hand crafted birch wood crate, which makes it perfect for gifting.
Thanks so much, Bobby & Josh! And happy shopping for your man, womanistas!
