Personal Shopper: Jenn's Boyfriend's Christmas Gift

Says Jenn: "I've started my Christmas shopping, and I'm looking for the perfect gift for my boyfriend. He loves anything Harley, Steelers, Denis Leary, knives/swords/guns, cooking, autobiographies, Boondock Saints, music, movies, mustangs, etc. Please, please, please help!"

Hi, Jenn! Marian here, and as one of our other editors said, your boyfriend is one manly man, man. If he's a major Steelers supporter, he probably already has a 1) Terrible Towel ($7), but maybe you could use one as wrapping material? There's also this 2) key to combining his interests in the Steelers and cooking, more specifically a toaster which burns the team's logo into the bread ($35). We at the pinkest site on earth have to say that this is technology we first became aware of with the Hello Kitty version. The other cooking implement here is the spectacularly silly 3) BBQ sword ($23).

If you'd rather not treat his interests in swordsmanship and the culinary world concurrently, you can pick him up 4) Samurai Champloo on DVD ($48) - a very funny, very cool hip-hop samurai series from the very cool Shinichiro Watanabe - and a copy of 5) Anthony Bourdain's Medium Raw ($14). (Your boyfriend's a Bourdain enthusiast, right?) Wind up the media selections with 6) the unrated special edition of The Boondock Saints. ($11)

And where would a manly man be without a Leatherman multi-tool? The 7) Leatherman Surge ($90) features twenty-one tools like pliers, wire cutters, and scissors in a practically indestructible combination.

Merry Christmas to both of you, Jenn, and drop us a line when you have the chance!

The Steel Curtain shirt from Homage is a great steeler fan gift. I got one after Outblush pointed me to this store a couple weeks ago.

Also, they just released Boondock Saints 2 - not as good as the first, but a must see for every fan! Might be nice to get a nice boxed set or something.

Outblush staff (especially Marian) and commenters: Thank you for the awesome gift ideas:-). I especially loved the creative idea of using a Terrible Towel as gift wrap. You guys rock!

You're welcome, Jenn! If you do wrap a gift in one of those, will you send us a picture?

Oh! Using a Terrible Towel to do Furoshiki (Japanese style of wrapping). Having grown up in Pgh, Steelers are like religion in my family... this is genius!

Here's how to do the furoshiki technique:
