These small but mighty items will have their recipient remembering this holiday season for years to come.

Convenience meets unparalleled design. The Elko is perfect for the aesthetically-minded man in your life who also values practicality. The keychain-sized knife is made for the on-the-go type, and features a stainless steel and aluminum construction that guarantee performance and utility every time.

Best Made -- The Elkskin Ropers ($98)

When it comes to something he’ll wear everyday, you want to go for quality. These gloves, designed for roping but gorgeous enough to wear for everyday use, are crafted from heavy elkskin, which is abrasion-resistant and softer than cowhide, and can be washed with more ease.

Another big perk? They’re made in the USA.

Byrd Hairdo -- The Pomade Sampler ($14)

If the guy in your life is new to the Byrd Hairdo line of haircare products, the best way to educate him is through a Pomade Sampler. He’ll be able to try out each of the offerings, including Classic, Matte and Light pomade, and find his favorite before going all-in.

W&P Design Carry On Cocktail Kit (Old Fashioned) ($24)

Looking to up your special guy’s airplane cocktail game? (Or maybe you’re hoping to partake in the spoils.) Either way, we suggest the Carry On Cocktail Kit by W&P Design. Thoughtful details for your favorite drinks take the stale in-flight drink up a much-needed notch.

The kit is TSA-friendly, and comes in a package he’ll want to keep long after the drinks are gone.

Stance Silence socks ($22)

Featuring a subtle ombrè colorway, along with a twisted nylon construction (which, according to Stance, increases durability and moisture wicking), these socks are for the design-minded individual who also demands performance from his products.

Also, it’s kind of a crime not to include a pair of socks in the stocking, right? Take tradition up a notch this year with some socks from Stance.
