Holtz & Hemingway
Hemingway did it, so did John Adams and Ronald Reagan. Studies have shown that journaling helps focus your thoughts, improves memory, allows you to capture ideas, and makes you more emotionally aware. We love this journal from Holtz Leather, a company making fine leather goods right here in Huntsville.
4.25 x 6 Journal ~ $60.00
6.25 x 8 Journal ~ $74.00
Wood & Warmth
Give your man a "pocketful of warmth" this holiday season. Traditionally made of glass, silver or pewter, the flask hit had its heyday during prohibition. Today, the flask is a mainstay of tailgaters and hunters alike. This flask from Whiskey Wood adds new style to your favorite libation. You can find this beauty and other Whiskey Wood gift items at Roosevelt and Co. in historic downtown Huntsville.
Wood Flask ~ $78.00
Learning To Fly
Give the art of the fly - fly fishing that is! Every man needs a hobby. Hobbies can relieve stress, help us focus on the moment, and get us out of the house and away from the desk, phone, and the office. Give the gift of a new experience this year. Casting and fly tying lessons are available through Orvis, Outdoor Alabama, and the Riverside Fly Shop
Fly Tying Classes ~ beginning classes offered for free
Fly Fishing lessons ~ start at $40
Fly Fishing Trips ~ start at $125
Is it time for him to ditch that old jacket from college, you know the one, and upgrade to something a bit newer? This Flynt goat suede with zip out vest lining is the perfect replacement.

Suede coat with zip out lining ~ $765.00
Hello New Old Friend
Doesn't matter if the man you are buying for is 30 or 60, this is the last briefcase he will ever need. Handcrafted just up the road in Lynnville, TN. by one of the finest leather purveyors in the country, Col. Littleton leather goods are made to last. How long will it last? We'll let the Colonel tell you. "If we’re talking about your favorite pair of jeans… maybe three or four years, depending on how many barbed-wire fences you cross. A good pickup truck… perhaps seven or eight years, unless the driver is under age twenty five... Cheap boots… maybe not even until the cows come home... But, I reckon if we’re talking about a good friendship or a Colonel Littleton product, you can pretty well expect them to last for a long, long time."
