Christmas, Hanukkah and other gift-giving holidays are right around the corner. If you’re like many, you may be struggling to find that perfect gift --- or at least one that hasn’t been given over and over through the years.
A leather duffle bag is a beautiful, practical gift that just about anyone can enjoy. But if you want to go a step further, or the person you’re buying a gift for already has a leather duffle bag, consider some of these other products that leather lovers are sure to enjoy.
Fill their stocking (or leather duffle bag!) with some of these great products, recommended by Go Forth Goods founder Nathan Martin:
“This company is making, in my opinion, the best quality American Made boots you can buy,” Nathan says. Go Forth Goods knows good leather, and these Oxfords are well-crafted to last a long time. They go great with just about every outfit you can think of!
This beard oil is perfect for those who like a soft beard, but don’t want to smell like they just “stepped out of the forest or wood shop,” Nathan says. Instead, this beard oil provides a nice, fresh, natural scent.
Made in Greenville, South Carolina, Billiam jeans can’t come more recommended by Nathan. “I’ve owned a pair of these jeans for over a year now, and they are by far my favorite pair of jeans.”
Price: $250 for most jeans
Anyone looking for whiskey from a small distillery can’t go wrong with ASW Resurgens Rye. Fermented and distilled in a unique way, Atlanta-based ASW earned a Double Gold Medal at the 2018 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
Handblown in South Carolina, this decanter and glass set “keeps your favorite fifth of bourbon or scotch stored and looking good on display for the for those perfect nights,” Nathan says. It’s a perfect complement to ASW Distillery whiskey.
Price: $40 - $290, depending on the set
This wallet is big enough to carry at least 20 cards, plus cash, and still fits into the front pocket. While the finish is your choice, “Choosing the natural color allowed it age naturally over time, and now it’s a nice dark honey brown,” Nathan says.
One look at this belt, and you can just tell why it’s Nathan’s favorite. It looks good with just about any outfit, and it only gets better with age. If you wear more black than brown, go for the black leather belt. Plus, there are various metals available for those with a specific metal allergy.
One of the great things about Apple Watches is being able to switch out the bands for any occasion. When Nathan needs to look stylish and sharp, he goes for the Apple Watch Strap. It’s durable, comfortable and just looks good.
The Fish Hook Key Chain is minimalistic, but provides great function. “Simply slide it over your belt loop and tuck your keys into one of your back pockets, or just let it hang,” Nathan says. He uses it every day to make sure his keys don’t get lost.
If you’re shopping for leather duffle bags, but don’t know where to start, Nathan has some ideas for that, too. He highly recommends:
This is Nathan’s favorite bag. He loads it up with his laptop for work, or with everything he needs for a hike in a national park. Plus, the outside pocket makes it easy to access items like a water bottle. The oil tanned leather is water resistant, making it perfect for any weather.
For longer trips, Nathan always grabs his Gunnar leather duffle bag. It’s an easy bag to just load up and go, and it’s the perfect size for week-long trips. Plus, using it in backpack mode with an additional strap is incredibly helpful at the airport.
