Thrillist’s Top 5 Things That Your Dude Is Totally Going To Want
Stumped for a gift for your guy that isn’t GTA4 or the latest 10-blade razor? Have no fear! The Frisky has teamed up with Thrillist to bring you the top guy stuff that doesn’t suck—like these sweet limited edition classic sneaks! You can thank us after your BF is done thanking you.
Gear: Fila Retro Sneakers/Duds
For a limited time only, Fila’s brought back a healthy stock of their hottest vintage track jackets, plus a smattering of classic kicks, like the the summer-ready White Line and the prominently-tongued 70s Fitness, which’ll make you either as derangedly successful as Arnold, or as hopelessly deranged as Mike Katz.

So you don’t get screwed at your garage sale/pawn shop, Tail provides pinpoint pricing on anything you’ve got lying around by crunching as-new prices, eBay listings, and guesses from both users and participants in Tail’s Facebook pricing game — even more popular than The Price is Right, because who wants to hug Drew Carey? See what the junk in your pad’s worth at Ztail.com.
Drinks: Talon Ice Tongs
These 8-inch long nickel-plated tongs snag cubes with a pair of eagle talons, a significant improvement over the clumsy Limited Edition Duck Foot Collection. For the first interesting ice bowl ever, pick the tongs up at FireworkGallery.net.
Gadget: Grace Digital Weatherproof Submersible Floating Speaker
Dock your iPod in the 150ft-range transmitter for 6hrs of water-rockin’ party tunes from the round floating speaker (you can also add up to 10 additional orbs). The speaker can actually be submerged up to nine feet for 30 minutes — which’d be great for David Blaine, if he could hear anything over the roar of his own suck. Power your pool party at NeimanMarcus.com.
Great Ideas From the Past: Marital Rating Chart
Find out how your lady stacks up with this circa-1939 chart that awards both merits (e.g., Good sense of humor, jolly and gay; Dresses for breakfast) and demerits (Wears red nail polish; Seams in hose often crooked). Oddly, it’s impossible to score above “Poor” — of course, in 1939, wasn’t everybody? Revel in a time when elementary math determined relationships at Apa.org.
