This holiday season is unlike any we’ve ever experienced. Gatherings are likely to be smaller, more intimate affairs. And if you’re like us, the usual blatant materialism of the holidays rings especially hollow this year. Rather than wanting piles of gifts under the tree, a lot of folks have come to an ever greater realization that the best things in life are the intangibles — things like relationships and good health. That doesn’t mean we need to spurn gifts all together, but it does maybe mean making your gifting less extravagant and superficial, and more intentional and meaningful. One way to do that is to eschew giving the kind of “stuff” that’s quickly used and thrown away, and instead giving the gift of knowledge — via books — which can stay with the recipient forever.
Over the last 10+ years, we’ve published a number of books across an array of topics. Below you’ll find the titles we have available in print (there are more ebook options at our store); you’re guaranteed to find something that your dad, grandpa, brother, son, in-law, or friend will enjoy. Plus, your purchases support what we do here at Art of Manliness!
