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!
