Sugarfina Maple Bourbon Caramels ($7.50) Smooth caramels infused with Maker’s Mark bourbon and premium maple sugar! Delicious!

Look at those luscious caramels begging to be eaten! If anyone’s having winter blues, this is the perfect pick-me-up – and super guy-friendly to boot (we don’t think you need to go beyond Maker’s Mark to make an impression!).

Gentleman’s Hardware Credit Card Tool ($17) This is an amazing item, a credit card-shaped tool with 10 different functions. It comes in a nice tin container, making it perfect for holiday gifting.

Made of brass, it can serve as a can opener, knife blade, screwdriver, ruler, bottle opener, position wrench, saw blade and more! My husband will be lucky if I don’t steal this!

Cortese Watches Prologo C12801 (€149, over $150 depending on exchange rate) Winter or not, a man’s outfit wouldn’t be complete without a watch. This one runs on a durable Miyota 2025 quartz movement.

Its case is silver-colored, which goes well with the leather NATO strap in brown. You can see how quickly the leather distresses, just from being handled – it will get a rich, worn look rather quickly.

The strap width is 20 mm and is nice and durable.

The sunray dial has a nice deep blue hue and the domed mineral glass makes it even more classy.

Quite a number of strap holes, which makes the watch adjustable, even for the tiniest wrists (the number of holes was a little baffling!).

Etiquette Men’s Mid Calf Socks in Seismic and Pixel ($42)  Of course, socks are winter must-haves!

These socks are made of 85% combed cotton, 13% nylon, and 2% elastane. Each piece is constructed on a 200-needle knitting machine.

Combining style and comfort, your favorite man will totally love snuggling his feet in these socks on a cold winter day! However, for some inexplicable reason, one pair is quite a bit larger than the other.

Bald Guy Greetings Set of 3 Cards ($10.50)  Fun cards to send to friends and family!

popsugar-must-have-limited-edition-for-him-december-2016-15

The cards also come with envelopes which has the Bald Guy Greetings logo on it.

Love the illustrations, although they were not really winter-themed and almost out of place in this box, but I think most guys would get a kick out of them.

popsugar-must-have-limited-edition-for-him-december-2016-17

The fun doesn’t stop on the illustrations. Can’t wait to send these to family & friends and have them laughing when they read what’s inside the cards!

Izola Take Care Shave Kit ($48) This dopp can be used as a travel companion for the holidays, or even just to organize winter essentials at home.

Thanks to its PEVA-lined interior, the pouch doesn’t need too much effort when cleaning.

popsugar-must-have-limited-edition-for-him-december-2016-23

Its exterior is made of heavy 100% cotton canvas.

There is also an exterior pocket where you can store smaller items.

Peak Ice Works Extra Large Ice Cube Tray ($12) A totally useful gift for those who like drinking cocktails on the rocks!

popsugar-must-have-limited-edition-for-him-december-2016-26

Because my husband is really a cocktail aficionado, he has plenty of “make giant ice” tools, so we’ll be gifting this one to a friend!

This box had a high value – about $300 – but it was kind of an odd box, and I think not anywhere as nice as last year’s edition. I think the box is really fantastic if you haven’t been purchasing them over the past several years or even for a college-aged male. The only wow thing in this box for us was the Sugarfina bourbon caramels (and the multi-tool was really high quality too). Ultimately I think how much you (or your guy) would enjoy this box depends on whether how addicted he is to subscription boxes!

    I also was not terribly wowed but I am hoping my boyfriend will think differently. I did check with him on the watch spoiler prior to buying just to make sure there would be 1 thing I know he would want. Fingers crossed he likes it better then I do!

    I purchased the PopSugar for Him after seeing the watch spoiler. I showed T (17) the watch which he loved and will be using when at his internship. I will also be gifting him the socks. He also claimed the cards immediately which did not surprise me. That seems to be his generation sense of humor.

    I am gifting everything else to others on my Christmas list except for the icecube tray. We are keeping that. It worked out well ordering this box based on the watch spoilers.

    I agree with Brandy about how the box seems a little odd. I was one of those that hesitated last year on purchasing it until full spoilers were revealed. It sold out quickly. The 2016 box worked out well for us and provided a lot of gifts. No complaints!
