TDS TOUGH SOFT

Gifts for Tough Guys with a Soft Touch

Photos by James Lowe

In the build up to Christmas, tough guys are known to get even a little tougher. They eat their steak a tad rarer, their voices drop at least one octave, and they seemingly dream of taking Old Saint Nick out front for a few good licks. But you know the tough guy(s) in your life better than that. Admittedly, by their very nature, it’s been a tough year for the tough guys out there. And deep down, your tough guy is excited about Christmas. He wants a day off being a totally tough guy. So, not yet another round of power tools, Santa socks or a new tractor. This Christmas, actually surprise him by acknowledging his thoughtful side, his finesse touch. Because after all: every tough guy can’t say no to a little luxury now and then. Like on Christmas Day. You’ll hit the sweet spot with your tough guy with these gifts.
