NESTLED IN RAFFIA AND TUCKED IN A WOODEN CRATE WITH PERSONALIZED CARD ARE:
MOSCOW MULE COPPER MUG: Whether he likes his mule with tequila or vodka, it’ll go down smoother and stay colder longer in this classic copper mug. Unlike zinc or steel imitations with a cheap copper finish, this mug is the real deal. It’s made of pure, superior-grade copper coated with food-grade lacquer for a lifetime of tarnish-free use. Hand washable.
CARRY-ON COCKTAIL KIT: Civility in coach class comes courtesy of this ingenious traveling bar. Sleek metal case holds tools necessary to concoct two Moscow Mules mid-flight. Tucked inside are a bottle of small-batch ginger syrup, half-ounce jigger, bar spoon and linen coaster. Ice and alcohol procured onboard or toted in TSA-friendly bottles complete the toast-worthy libations.
MOSCOW MULE RECIPE CARD: Lest one forgets critical proportions, we asked Sally Balt of LaHappy design studio to create a recipe card with artful instructions on mixing the perfect Moscow Mule. So pretty, it’s worthy of framing to commemorate a flight or night to remember.
HAND-POURED WAX CANDLE: Long-burning soy wax with a clean, fresh scent dispels memories of cloying scents that long have turned guys off of candles. Made in small batches in California, this candle is hand poured into a minimalistic container that, when empty, can be repurposed as a desk or bathroom catchall.
LEATHER KEY FOB: Artisans at Marakesh Leather in Seattle’s Pike Place Market hand make these simple, useful fobs from premium, full-grain, American leather with sturdy fittings. Ideal for carrying one or two keys and favored by those who appreciate the absence of bulk and jingling.
MCCREA’S CLASSIC CARAMELS: These dense, creamy chunks of goodness are made the old-fashioned way with natural and locally sourced ingredients in a family-owned factory. They are the authentic confection generations of caramel lovers remember, down to the waxed-paper wrapping that keeps each plump morsel sweet and fresh.
