December is already upon us and many thoughts have been drifting to the perfect gifts for our friends and loved ones.  However, shoes can be hard to gift- you can’t just get a medium and hope for the best.  So we’ve poked around the store and found a few gift worthy items that the gentlemen in your life will love.

Top Gifts For Men

1. Socks 

Good quality socks are appreciated. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise (it’s the pack of athletic socks that make for less than thrilling presents). At RōM we take care to only stock brands we LOVE, and this goes for socks as well. Darn Tough socks are our best selling socks because they are made so well they carry a LIFETIME GUARANTEE!  Darn Tough will have you covered from your everyday sock needs to your more specialized needs, such as thicker socks with cushion for hiking, or running and bike socks that have an ultra-light fit that integrate seamlessly with your shoes.  They come in colors and patterns that you’ll find appealing for years to come (afterall, you’re going to have them for a long time).  We also carry equally awesome made in the US brand FITS, great for hiking, and the recycled cotton socks made in Portland Sidekick Socks


2. Wallets 

Let’s face it, everytime you see that one wallet your are reminded of George Costanza, and you know that wallet is going to burst at any second.  Do that guy a favor and gift him a new one, so he can start the year off with a simple clean slate.  Check out the handcrafted wallets from Kiko  Leather and Finelar , from classic to styles a little wild – you’re sure to find the perfect wallet.

3. Bags 

Weather he’s a backpack or messenger kind of guy, we’ve got something from Harvest Label that is sure to please.

4. Belts 

We take great pride in sourcing what we can from small batch US made companies.  Foster Weld is our (unisex) belt of choice.  Simple quality that holds your pants up.
