Hip Flasks: The Most Ideal Gift for Men

Apr 9th 2015 at 2:23 AM

Men are either very easy or very hard to shop gifts for. However, there are certain gift items that are a sure hit to most men, making the task of finding the perfect gift a little easier. If you are squeezing your brains out for some good gift ideas for your dad, brother, uncle, or a close male friend, consider surefire items like hipflasks and drinking accessories. These are perfect manly gifts that every guy will love.

Hip flasks have always been a gentleman's accessory. They make awesome gifts as well as commemorative items, especially when they are engraved. It is quite easy to have hip flasks engraved these days, especially with trusty online stores that offer the service with their impressive selection of engraved gifts. Many gift stores even offer trendy hip flasks for you to choose from, ideal for when shopping gifts for your fleet of groomsmen or the most loved gentlemen in the family.

A hip flask is a small container, often made of metal, typically used to carry liquor in a discrete manner. Hip flasks are small enough to carry around in a gentleman's coat or trouser pocket. An elegant gift idea, engraved hip flasks will add great value to the piece, making it more exclusive to the recipient.

Traditionally, hip flasks are made of pewter, glass, or silver. Modern hip flasks of today, however, tend to be made from cheaper stainless steel and sometimes even, plastic. A typical design includes a captive top, which connects the cap to flask so that it will not get lost when the flask is opened. Flasks are also contoured so that they can fit naturally in the pocket, against the thigh or the hip. They come in standard sizes ranging from 2.5 to 8 ounces.

Hip flasks come in a wide variety of shapes and styles, as well as materials. Antique or vintage flasks are great gift ideas, especially if you know someone who is fond of collecting them. Antique flasks are not hard to find, although they are not recommended for actual use and are only often great for collection and as a conversation piece. Stainless steel hip flasks are most common today. They are probably the best choice for engraving, along with hip flasks that are enclosed in leather (which are also basically steel on the inside). Silver flasks are much harder to find these days, along with pewter and gold.
