These Are the Best Gifts for Men
1. Our Place Always Pan, $145

With that being said, you likely won’t need to replace it: It’s so durable it could last a lifetime.
3. Sustainable Chef Gift Set, $75
This gift set is perfect for a chef who’s ready to make some sustainable swaps. It comes complete with an apron made by artisans in India, a pack of Food Huggers to limit food waste, and a Burlap & Barrel Spice Trio to kick-start an ethically-sourced spice journey.
You can’t beat a candle that smells like a National Park. There are three available in the Brightly Shop through November 7th: Rainier, Yosemite, and the Grand Canyon, each of which is made with all-natural soy.
This kit has everything needed to make two delicious Moscow Mules, plus a soft linen coaster to keep them on. Not only is it a great stocking stuffer, but it’s also fun to send out for virtual office happy hours.
