A monogram is the true mark of a gentleman and shouldn’t just be reserved for stationery or cuff links. For a personalized gift, consider a laser-engraved stainless steel shaker—guaranteeing an understated yet chic conduit for those cocktail claims to fame.
Want a cool gift that’s sophisticated and inexpensive? It’s all about a wooden cocktail muddler. Long and slender enough to reach the bottom of any cocktail glass to release oils and juices from fruit, herbs and veggies, using one of these babies says, “I’m a man with the right tool for the right job.” Well-made muddlers can be found online or at retail stores for less than $20.
