Holiday Gift Guide 2018

It’s that time of the year again. Time for good cheer, good friends, and good food with the family. And of course… Time for presents. Now yes, we’d be honored if you chose one of our incredible rings to give to someone special this year (even if that someone special is you.)

But this time, Manly Bands is going to spread the love, and hook you up with a metric ton of great ideas from a bunch of companies we love and respect here. So, without any further delay, we present our picks for the 2018 Manly Bands Holiday Gift Guide!

CARVED

OUR TAKE:
Manly Men and Nature were born to be together. And wood is the greatest symbol of Nature's Awesomeness. It was one of our first building materials, our first fuel source, and thanks to the crew at Carved, it is now the manliest material to encase your phone. Plus, they have other awesome accessories like hand-crafted knives and wallets. 

THE OFFICIAL WORD:
Carved was born from an idea to join natural materials with technology. Each piece we make is one-of-a-kind and handmade here at our shop in Elkhart, Indiana. Whether you're looking for a phone case, wallet, power bank or speaker made from naturally unique materials, we've got you covered.

FULTON & ROARK

OUR TAKE:
Just because you are a Manly Man, doing Manly Things, you don't have to smell like it. The team at Fulton & Roark take your manly grooming ritual seriously, providing quality scents and soaps in easy to use containers (most of their scents come in a solid form, for easy application.) So if you want products that keep you smelling as awesome as you are, you don't need to look any further.

WOOL&PRINCE

OUR TAKE:
When you hear "wool clothing," you may not get the "warm and fuzzies" right off the bat. But the squad at Wool & Prince intend to change all that with their line of Merino wool offerings. Wrinkle resistant, odor resistant, and long lasting, you'll find yourself going longer between washes, and doing less laundry is ALWAYS a bonus!

THE OFFICIAL WORD:

OUR TAKE:
The relationship between Men and their wallets is an oft-overlooked, but truly special thing. It's where we keep most of our most vital documents, access to all our manly funds, and a few other truly important items we won't mention here.
