For the dapper gentleman in your life, what could be more appropriate than a head topper from the venerable Larry’s Hats in Nob Hill? We recommend checking out their line of New York Hat Co. products; they’re made in a vintage hat factory in, you guessed it, New York City. For less than $35, you can pick up an authentic 1900s-style flannel gangster, or upgrade to an antique leather driver cap for $47. (Ty Bannerman)

Edwin Jagger Red Razor, $48

Nothing says “old-fashioned Christmas present” like a fancy razor. Sure, in today’s technology-minded ethos, “easier” is always better. But a clean shave isn’t about the price of a razor; it’s about the integrity of its use. At Model Pharmacy, their red Edwin Jagger razor would make a nice holiday gift for a husband, a son who’s just learning how to shave or your dear old grandpa. Priced at $48, it’s sort of a steal, and it’s a lovely throwback to them good ol’ days. (Mark Lopez)

Surprise your Pueblo princess—or killer queen—with a fetching crown of chile for only $75. (Samantha Anne Carrillo)

Acupuncture, $15 And Up

2013 was rough. The government quit on us for a few weeks, old white men tried to outlaw women’s choices about their own uteruses, and Miley Cyrus ruined mouse leotards for all of us. Soothe stress—and all that ails you—with acupuncture treatment. Acupuncture helps balance the body’s energy to improve overall health, and it can treat everything from inflammation to allergies. Casita’s sliding scale prices and convenient hours make the locally owned clinic a great place to gift your loved ones with a coping strategy for the demanding world we inhabit. (Amelia Olson)
