Christmas Gift Ideas For Lumbersexuals: 15 Great Gifts Every Wannabe Lumberjack Will Love

Get him what he wants. What he really, really wants.

Chances are, this festive season you’ll be buying presents for at least one chap with an intimidatingly large beard, and a penchant for check shirts (or plaid shirts, if you really insist).

Yes they’re rugged, yes they’re outdoorsey, but deep down these men are hipsters and, as such, they’ll reject the notion of being a Lumbersexual. Why wouldn’t they? It’s a really, really stupid word, after all.

But we’re not here to debate the merits of a catch-all term for these musky, bearded giants-among-men. Oh no. We’re here to inspire you to buy them the right thing for Christmas.

Here’s the ultimate Lumbersexual Christmas gift guide. And yes, there will be check shirts. Lots of them:
