Gift giving for the dudes on my Christmas list is a challenge. My husband is a minimalist, so anytime I ask him what he wants for Christmas he shrugs and says, "Nothing." While he acts indifferent, the truth is my man loves a thoughtful gift. A few years ago I visited a couple of his favorite breweries and purchased different pint glasses and t-shirts from each one along with specialty beers to put together a custom twelve pack. He loved it and still refers to it as the best gift he’s ever received. For those of you struggling with what to get the men in your life, I have compiled a local shopping guide that will please even the pickiest of dudes.

First up, we have the Gold Standard sunglasses bundle from Knockaround, a local company headquartered in Barrio Logan. Included are three different varieties of shades; a great option for the guy who is always losing his sunglasses. With your purchase you’ll receive two pairs of Wayfarers and one pair of aviators with polarized lenses. Each pair comes with a Knockaround case. Also included is a "gold brick" piggy bank.

For beer lovers, you can go with the Reader's very own Brandon Hernández’s 2014/2015 Complete Guide to San Diego Breweries. Purchase the book in paperback for $11.99. The recently updated book covers 130-plus brewing company-owned public venues in San Diego County.

Bottlecraft tee

Bottlecraft in North Park offers a nice selection of beer-related gifts. You can purchase your man a $15 Bottlecraft tee. They also offer monthly, three-months, six-months, and yearly Beer Club memberships. A one-month Beer Club membership includes 6 bottles of hand-picked beer with the curator’s tasting notes and reflections on the beer. Other perks include members-only events, discounts, first dibs on rare beer, and more. One month goes for $39.99.

Graffiti beach in South Park offers a wonderful variety of men’s items. The Wewood Beta Brown Wood watch is a great option for the guy that has everything. It retails for $140. Graffiti Beach also has unique menswear t-shirts and socks.
