The survival kit comes with a whistle, compass, flint and steel, a knife, a compass, and other things that you might need during an emergency.
One interesting feature of this survival set is the compass. The compass has an extremely accurate needle, which can point towards the north even when you are standing still. The compass does not need to be used when a magnetic field is present.
2. Glass Beer Mug Stein Hand Crafted Monogram Initial Pewter Engraved Large Crest
- Large enough for any size beer
- Made from high quality glass
- Each mug is individually hand-blown
If you like beer and you like mugs, then this is a must have! This item is stoneware beer glass, or a beer stein, or just a beer mug. The main takeaway with the stein is that it’s made from a thick, high-quality glass that can easily survive a drop or two. Its wide base makes it very sturdy.
The beer stein holds 2.9 liters of beer, which may sound a lot, but in reality, it’s just enough for a mug of your favorite beer. It’s enough to quench your thirst, but not so much that it would lead to you becoming drunk.
This beer stein only measures 4.5 inches tall. The handle measures about 2.5 inches wide. The top piece is the lid, which is held together by the main handle.
3. MVMT Men's Minimalist Vintage Watch
- Very affordable
- Looks nice
- Easy to wear
- The leather is nice and elastic
This watch is round and it’s meant for wearing every day, though it is a little larger than other watches on the market. It has intricate details that makes it appear more expensive than it is, but it’s still made of some basic watch-making materials. It has an elegant leather band, and the watch is also available in different colors. It also has a durable and comfortable built.
It's a watch with clean lines that's comfortable to wear. It does a great job of keeping time, and it does perform any other functions that watches typically do. For the price you're paying for it, it's really quite basic. While that may be frustrating to some, it's actually a good thing in our mind. If you want the features, you can pay 10 times more for a watch.
4. Pegai Personalized Passport Wallet
- Made from all-natural leather with a secure snap and a material that’s durable.
- Comes with a lock and slot for your credit cards.
- Holds your passport and tickets.
- Has a flip cover to protect the passport itself.
- Can attach to your belt loop
- Available in three colors
- Not enough room for a boarding pass or even a lot of credit cards.
- The stitching is very poor quality, though not necessarily poorly made, just poor quality.
The first thing that strikes you about this passport holder is the attention to detail. Instead of using a general wallet design that feels like a generic commodity, this one has a laser engraved design that’s different for every product.
You have to love a company that uses the term “distressed leather” for a product. It seems to say, “Yeah, we know this leather is crappy, but we still sell it”.
5. Apple AirPods Pro
- Easy to use and manage
- Great battery life
- Best sound quality
- Durable construction
- One ear quit working on both, exchangeable
- No hands-free function, have to get Siri up first
- Have to take them out to charge them
AirPods are very convenient and worth the initial investment. It makes me wonder why we didn’t have these earbuds 20 years ago. This is another must-have if you want to take your phone on every run, and you can keep your phone safely in your shorts pocket or backpack. Not only will it stay secure, but you can quickly access it with just a tap. We like AirPods since you can control Siri by double tapping your iPhone’s side button, which can help you start and stop music, call an Uber, record a message, and more.
If you’re not a fan of AirPods, wireless “true” Bluetooth headphones are another option. They have a much higher price tag, but you’ll have higher sound quality.
6. Slaughterhouse Crate by Man Crates

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
How much do you spend on best man gift?
The amount you spend on a best man gift depends mostly on the personal relationship you have with the groom, and secondly on your own budget. Of course, it is always a nicer gesture to give something more expensive like a watch or a phone than something cheap like a tie or a pants, but it is ultimately the thought that counts. It’s better to spend a few extra bucks and get the best best man gift for your budget because that’s what matters.
Do you give your best man a gift?
The best man is the best man or groom’s right-hand man. As such, he deserves some sort of a gift. A lot depends on the economic situation of the groomsman, but it’s not expected as a rule that the best man receive a gift. The groom¬ and/or the bride, however, should give the best man a special toast at the reception thanking him for all his help and sacrifices throughout the rough ride.
After that, if the best man wants a gift, it is entirely up to him. Different friends may give him anything from a small token gift to a special gift that he can’t wait to unwrap.
What are some cool gifts for guys?
There are tons of awesome gifts out there for guys. The first thing you should do is check their registry. If they already have everything they need from their registry, then looking at their profile on your website may give you some ideas.
If they don’t have a registry, a gift card to the local pizza joint is a good idea. Who doesn’t love pizza?
It’s also a good idea to have a few low-cost options and a few higher-end options. An extra set of headphones to their favorite video game, or an outfit to match that new suit you got them, or a gift card to their favorite sports team are all good low-cost ideas.
If you really want to go all out, a gift such as a drone or an electric vehicle will probably have them scratching their head for a while.
