The MoMA Store is a design-driven retail segment of the museum that is chock-full of surprisingly fun and useful gizmos, gadgets, trinkets and toys for men and boys of all ages. Test your puck-shuffling skills with a home version of a classic pub game, or learn to play the ukulele in as little as fifteen minutes, with a couple of our favorite picks below.
BLEUSALT was created Lyndie Benson, a friend of Au Courant, out of an authentic need for beautifully-designed clothing that has the luxurious quality and softness of cashmere without the preciousness and high price point. Born from the beaches of Malibu, BLEUSALT is a curated collection cultivated from the sustainable botanic fibers of the beech tree and each signature item is 100% made in the USA.
From clothes and headphones to colognes and body sprays, Nordstrom has a variety of gifts for men and boys alike. We especially love the wireless, noise-cancelling headphones from Bang & Olufsen, which are ideal for the teen or traveler in your life. Vilebrequin swim trunks are another winner when it comes to gifts for that special gent in your life – their classical cut and quick-drying fabric make them perfect for the pool or beach.
Lazyjack Press makes some oh-so-fun cheeky ties and pocket squares, perfect for the son or nephew who is home from college or that family friend with the wild personality.
The luxury retailer is also known for its amazing selection of fragrances and body sprays. A few of our favorite brands, with which you can never seem to go wrong, are Diptyque, Fréderic Malle, BYREDO and Le Labo. Each creates one-of-a-kind Eau de Toilette that only seem to smell better the longer you wear them.
& you can’t forget the travel cases!
