Buying for the PR Man: 5 Gifts Under $50

By Allen Haynes, Director, Public Relations

Figuring out what to buy the PR guy in your life can be stressful. Whether he’s your husband, boyfriend, brother or cubicle mate, you need something for this creative man who is always ready to tackle a crisis scenario or develop a presentation at a moment’s notice.

If he’s anything like me, he’s an old soul in a young man’s body. He likes scotch, tailored suits, pea coats, windsor tie knots, watches and typewriters. And, annoyingly, if there’s something he wants and it only costs $25, he’s probably already bought it for himself – making him difficult to buy for, right?

Well, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s a Duffey-approved holiday gift guide to find your PR man the perfect, affordable gift this Christmas and Hannukah.

1) The Old-Fashioned glass

This glass is $4.95 from Crate&Barrel. Pair this with your man’s favorite bourbon and the recipe below for the perfect Old-Fashioned and you’ll be in his pretentious heart forever.

Jolly Ole [Fashioned] St. Nicholas

2 oz Basil Hayden bourbon
2 oz of Cranberry juice

2 dashes of orange bitters
2 dashes of cinnamon

2 dashes of crushed cloves
1 cinnamon stick for garnish

2) The awesome ice spheres to complement the aforementioned cocktail.

Complete the PR gentleman’s perfect festive night cap with these molds from Amazon for $10. You’ll keep his drink cold and his heart warm.

3) The black skinny tie.

Every man should have a black tie. It goes well with so many items from formal gala wear to a disheveled after-hours look with a light blue shirt. This tie is wool, which gives a little more of a casual look without a jacket, it’s GQ-approved and is only $15 from The Tie Bar.

4) Membership to Dollar Shave Club 

I haven’t been clean shaven since September 2009, but for the media relations pro who can’t grow an awesome beard or must be clean shaven for the work place, this is a great gift. Pay a small monthly subscription ranging from $1/month to $9/month and new razors arrive on his doorstep regularly.

5) Chemex CM-1C 3-Cup Classic Series Glass Coffeemaker

If your dude works in public relations or marketing, there’s a good chance he drinks his weight in coffee… daily. This coffee maker provides an excellent hand-crafted coffee experience without any moving parts, and is only $48 on Amazon. As a bonus, invest in whole-bean coffee and a good grinder to complement.

Check in with us tomorrow as we unveil our 5 gifts under $50 for the PR woman.

Happy Holidays and Merry Pitching.
