Gift Guide #4: Your Husband Who Makes Tacos Every Sunday Night and Sings Beatles Songs to Your Toddler.


Military-style duffle bag, $440. A heavy-duty waxed canvas backpack that's beautiful, functional and durable. Made in Portland, Oregon. Not cheap, but he'll love and use this trusty bag for every trip and adventure for the rest of his life (and pass it down to your kids).

iPhone holder/tripod for displaying recipes while cooking, taking self-portraits, shooting family videos, all those dad things. (No more vacation portraits taken with an awkwardly extended arm!) $30.

Felt mistletoe to tuck into his shirt pocket on a date night, $16.

Demetri Martin's Standup Comedian, the funniest stand-up comedy CD in ages. Makes us laugh out loud until we're red-faced and crying. Seriously. $9.99.

Leather bike pouch. Perfect size to fit his wallet, keys and a sandwich (and let him ride comfortably with empty pockets). $138.
Leather luggage tag, so he never has to fill out those annoying paper ones again (and can just glide through the airport like Clooney). $45.

YES. The Amplifiear projects your iPad's sound toward you, so you can actually hear a movie or song. (Why does Apple make such weak speakers?!) $24.99.

Board shorts for all his boyish adventures year round, $70.
Homemade gin kit to make martinis from scratch within 36 hours. Awesome. $39.95.

Mixtape, like the one you made him when you were first dating. $15. (The genius design plugs right into a computer's USB port!)

A bouncy ball that bounces up to 75 FEET, to delight his inner kid (and blow your toddler's mind). $8.50.
His favorite stinky cheese (prices vary) plus this tee, $15.

A portable back-up iPhone battery he can carry with him, since his phone is always running out of batteries. Genius for traveling/planes! $39.50. (And here's the women's version.)

P.S. More gifts for husbands (including 10 gifts Alex revealed himself), and the 2012 gift guide so far...
