He knows what he likes, and he likes things he can use. Show you appreciate his love of purposeful products by getting him a gift from our collection, like a minimalist bottle opener or a classic duffle bag. These seven picks are all Made in America, which we think the men on your list will appreciate. And be sure to visit the complete For Him Gift Guide over at the Dwell Store.

When choosing a gift this year, consider giving a design with a story, like these Made in America products. We love the classic Duffle Bag from Topo Designs. The entire bag is made in Colorado, and includes thoughtful details like natural leather lash tabs, interior pockets and a coated nylon pack cloth liner. The company’s mission is to capture an outdoor spirit while maintaining a streamlined aesthetic for urban appeal. We’re confident that many audiences, from outdoorsmen to city commuters, will approve this versatile bag. The duffle is super functional, and can be packed with other presents—like the sleek Titanium Bottle Opener from Brooklyn’s Pat Kim Designs and the Leather Bifold Wallet from L.A.’s Otaat —to create an awesome gift for a lucky guy on your list.

Topo Designs Duffle Bag, $129 at the Dwell Store

Topo Design’s classic duffle is at once outdoorsy and streamlined. The bag is made in Colorado and can be used for a range of purposes from weekend camping trips to urban commuting.

Titanium Bottle Opener, $40 at the Dwell Store

The Titanium Bottle Opener from Brooklyn’s Pat Kim Design is a simple accessory that can be easily carried in one’s pocket or hung on a hook. Made of durable titanium, this is an enduring bar accessory.

If you want to make a statement with your holiday gifting, the Shuffleboard Table from Chandra will do just that. Made of solid ash wood, this table is entirely handcrafted in Atlanta, Georgia. Four craftsmen take between five and six weeks to construct each table. The table includes an ash playing top that is finished with a glossy lacquer finish for a smooth glide. Available in three custom finishes ranging from the natural-looking white finish to a modern black finish, each shuffleboard is also hand stained in Atlanta. The table includes custom hand-upholstered leather gutters and inlayed padded cushions to keep sound to a minimum. Even the aluminum pucks are American-made and include a limited lifetime warranty.

Los Angeles–based Otaat’s leather wallet is made from supple cowhide. With a slim profile, the wallet is specifically designed to fit into a back pocket.

Chandra Shuffleboard Table, $6,250 at the Dwell Store

This shuffleboard table is handcrafted by skilled craftsmen in Atlanta, Georgia. The table exquisitely blends high design elements and a classic pub game for a truly distinctive furnishing.

This sculptural table elevates the classic pub game into a work of art. Where you might expect someone to put a shuffleboard table in a basement or garage space, Chandra’s table is sophisticated enough to take residence in a living room or hold court in an upscale rec room. The innovative leg design offers a stunning visual detail that proves that modern design can be lighthearted—game playing and high design are not mutually exclusive.

Red Bull Framed Print – Menagerie Collection, $265 at the Dwell Store

This framed print from illustrator and designer Mark McGinnis will make a great addition to an office. The print blends screen printing and hand-drawing to create a one-of-a-kind piece of wall art.
