Jump to...

$25 and Under

Stocking stuffers, white elephant gifts, and presents for people you feel obligated to buy for. These gifts punch above their weight.

Daneson Flavored Toothpicks

Daneson’s flavored toothpicks are an excellent stocking stuffer. 12 toothpicks come in a vial with a cork topper. Premium packaging and a premium product ensure whoever you're buying for will feel like a million bucks after every meal. Flavors include single-malt scotch, bourbon, mint, and cinnamint.

Darn Tough Socks

Every year, grocery store aisles are lined with cheap, novelty seasonal socks for people to give as gifts. I suspect most of these make it one Christmas before ending up in the garbage or lost. Rise above the sock cliche this year with Darn Tough socks. Made with merino wool, sewn in Vermont since 1978, and backed by a lifetime warranty.

Grooming Goods

If you spend a lot of time close enough to this guy to smell him, grooming goods are an excellent gift for everyone. Consider this soap from Hudson Made out of New York. A manly scent embedded in a triple-milled bar of soap that will surprise you with how long it lasts. A whole collection of smell-good products can be found in our shop.

Field Notes

For the old-fashioned note-taker or budding designer in your life. Field Notes are inspired by the promotional memo books distributed to American farmers over the last hundred years by seed, tractor, and other agricultural companies. Today, Field Notes are both functional and, for the design-conscious, collectible. In addition to their classic memo books, you can find day planners, steno pads, and large-format notebooks in our shop. There’s even a waterproof edition.

$25 - $60

Dehen Watch Caps

Perhaps the most iconic garment in a long line of civilian-wear inspired by the armed forces. Watch caps will probably always be in style here in the northwest.

Our favorite iteration here is a 100% wool cap from Dehen 1920 up in Portland. We also carry a 100% wool option from Seattle-based Filson, and for those looking for a cotton cap instead of wool this holiday, we've got a selection from Taylor Stitch as well. All of them are certifiably cozy.


For the modern man, a tie is a statement piece he wears because he loves it, not because he has to. If you know a guy who sports a fashionable bow tie or regular necktie from time to time, feed his collection with something from Pocket Square Clothing. The assortment in our case include cotton, wool, and linen options in both straight black and fun patterns.

Safety Razor

For the clean-cut guy in your life. Safety razors are an eco-friendly and, over the long term, more affordable alternative to disposable razors, so upgrade your man to a Rockwell safety razor. We’re happy to educate you on the various options available. Pairs well with shaving cream and aftershave for the full experience.

Fulton & Roark Fragrances

Fulton & Roark, out of North Carolina, is pumping out absolute knock-out scents. More expensive than bargain-bin, locker-room scents, but way more affordable than designer fragrances. Story time from Porterhouse owner, Ethan:

This summer I was at a wedding wearing a little Fulton & Roark cologne. One of the groomsmen, a couple drinks in, came up to me in the bar line, threw an arm around my shoulder, and stuck his face in my neck before shouting "BRO WHY DO YOU SMELL SO GOOD!?". The audience wasn't the intended one, but it definitely made an impact.

Solid colognes are a huge improvement over spray colognes because you can apply it exactly where you want it and just as much as you want. Shop the full collection of scents here.

$60 - $150

100% Wool Scarf

Howlin' is new brand in the shop this season, and we can't get enough of this 100% wool scarf.

Terry Loungewear

Reigning Champ's terry cloth basics are made up in Vancouver. We stock a great collection of sweats, hoodies, and jackets. Athleisure at its finest. Perfect for getting to and from the gym!

Leather Wallets

If you happen to know a gentleman with a tri-fold velcro wallet, it is, in fact, your duty to gift them something to replace it this year. No need to announce themselves every time they open their wallet.

Gift them an upgrade from our selection of leather wallets from Fontenelle Supply Company. Based in Des Moines, Iowa, Fontenelle crafts their wallets from Hermann Oak, a tannery in St. Louis, Missouri. We carry their card, bifold, money clip, passport, and notebook wallets, the last of which pairs perfectly with a pack of Field Notes (see above).


A leather belt is about as easy a gift as it comes. Stylish, durable, and with plenty of holes, if you don’t get the exact right size, close enough will be fine. Our belts also come from Fontenelle, made from that same Hermann Oak leather. Size down for the guy looking to shed a little COVID weight.

$150 - $300

At this price point, you’ll find higher quality shirting with selvedge construction, unique patterns and details, and most definitely made in America.

Made-in-USA Shirting

We love curating made-in-USA shirting. It runs more expensive, but quality often does! Among these options you'll find brands new and old. One one hand are shops like Gitman Vintage that have been pumping out shirting since 1978, and on the other are relative newcomers trying to build back American-based textile production, like Freenote Cloth and Rogue Territory. Solid oxfords, prints and checks, corduroy and more.


At the $300 and up price point, these gifts might actually outlast the person you’re buying for.

Waxed Canvas Outerwear

Did you know that Eugene actually gets more rain each year than Seattle? They just get the reputation because they’re bigger. That weather makes waxed canvas an excellent choice for outerwear. Thick, canvas cotton with a thin layer of wax so the elements roll right off.

We’ve got a couple waxed canvas options for the outdoorsman on your list. Above you'll see a lined option from Freenote Cloth. For something a bit lighter, Rogue Territory's signature Ridgeline Supply Jacket is just the ticket.

Mackinaw Jackets

Filson likes to talk about their 100% wool Mackinaw jackets as a rite of passage for young Pacific Northwesterners, and we’ve heard the same story from many of our customers. A Mackinaw jacket will brave any condition the PNW throws at it for many many years. This jacket will probably only get regifted if it outlasts its original owner.


A pair of leather boots will always be in fashion, and a pair of properly-constructed boots can be repaired and re-soled over the years. We have a few select styles available, and they can be found here.

Above we're featuring a pair of boots exclusive to our shop made by the good folks at Oak Street Bootmaker in Chicago, IL. These trench boots are great in inclement weather. The rough-out leather is easy to clean and will keep you dry.

Schott Leather Jackets

Schott has been making excellent leather jackets here in the US for decades, and we were thrilled to welcome them to the shop this year. A good leather jacket never goes out of style, and with care, will last a good long time.

Gift Cards!

And of course, we've got gift cards available here at Porterhouse, good both in store and online, and available at any price point.
