Last week, we kicked off our gift guide series with some of our favorite paper and wood gifts.  This week, we’re going a bit heavier with some metal options from brands new and old.

1. 3oz. Flask by Izola: Perfect for everything from a boring holiday party to a night wandering the neighborhood looking at lights, these stainless steel flasks make a fantastic stocking stuffer.

2. Engine Turned Money Clip by Tiffany & Co.: Little blue boxes aren’t just for the ladies.  Made from sterling silver, and featuring a classic engine turned look, this money clip will never be out of style.  Go ahead and have it monogrammed.

3. Custom Buckle by Trafalgar:  With a basic leather strap, or something a bit more exotic, you can wear this buckle with just about everything.  Also available in gold, a Trafalgar custom buckle will become  your go to in no time at all.  Again, go for the monogram.

4. Explorer by Rolex: A friend of ours put a four wheeler on his Christmas list when he was seven and it has become his tradition to include it on said list every year until he gets one.  20+ years later he’s still waiting, but we love the dedication.  That being said, we’re adding an Explorer to our list this year and keeping it there until we have one of our own.  Hopefully it won’t take quite as long as that four wheeler our friend is waiting on.

5. Shark Buckle by Fishtail:  Our friend Leighton up at Fishtail surprised us with one of these buckles a few months back, and it’s seen heavy wear ever since.  Modeled after a buckle his father once gave him, each bronze shark buckle is hand cast and truly heirloom quality.
