Your mom is right: Everybody actually does need more wool socks. So get your favorite outdoorsy type a pair or two of those, but also consider the stuff below—they're some of our favorite gifts under $50.
For the world traveler: A TSA compliant multitool? It’s true—such a thing exists. Leatherman’s Style PS has spring action pliers, needle nose pliers and wire cutters, scissors, flat and Phillips screwdrivers, tweezers and nail file, a carabiner and bottle opener all hidden in a stainless steel body with a glass filled nylon handle. It’s 2.9 inches closed, and it weighs less than two ounces. Best of all, because there’s no blade, it won’t put you on the no-fly list. $25, leatherman.com
For the hairy: Rapha's Shaving Cream blends natural ingredients and essential oils to soothe the skin and leave it feeling supple and hydrated, wherever you're combating stubble. It smells great, like you're riding through Provence, and works just as well on normal dudes' faces as it does on serious roadie's legs. $20, rapha.cc
