Dopp kits, shaving balms, cards and ties are all well and good, but when it comes to finding a gift for the men in your life, why not take it a step farther? A hand-sewn-to-order waxed canvas Dopp kit; an aftershave lovingly crafted in small batches; a tie made from something unexpected, all offered in the creative shops of Etsy artisans.

Below, you’ll find a collection of gift ideas that all boast that little something extra – something personal, something interesting. Which ones speak to you?
