Cupcakes are like chick flicks with Reese Witherspoon — nearly every guy likes them but none of us want to admit it. Butch Bakery Cupcakes ($18-$50) are tasty treats you don't have to be ashamed of loving, with camo, wood grain, houndstooth, plaid, checkerboard, or marble chocolate discs on top instead of sissified sprinkles. [Thanks, Anthony]
Zesty, bold, and unexpected — and that's just the included fake mustache. Sazon Mas Guapo ($10) is a spice blend that falls somewhere between a dry rub and seasoning salt, and promises to make "any chef seem more handsome," while also making your food "more better."
New Balance revises one of their most classic silhouettes with the 997H. The new model comes with updated features like a GCEVA construction and a light-weight outsole that give the sneaker an updated appearance. Subtle nods to the original 1991 design are found in the suede and mesh details as well as the four 90s-inspired colorways. Altogether, the result is a sleek, modernization that is equal parts innovative and nostalgic.
When you find the right watch, it becomes an extension of you. That's been the case for generations of iconic figures like Paul Newman, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Elvis Presley. A Man and His Watch profiles those figures and the timepieces they wore from the perspective of author Matthew Hranek, who traveled the world conducting interviews and gathering the histories of 76 watches. Each piece is attached to an original photograph and a detailed story of some of the most coveted watches in the world.
Just like regular soda, somewhere along the line ketchup — even name brand stuff like Heinz — went from being natural mixes to scary, high fructose corn syrup-filled goo. Sir Kensington's Gourmet Scooping Ketchup ($7) is out to rectify this situation, with two recipes (original and spiced) containing high-quality, all natural ingredients, and with a taste so refined that it demands to be scooped, not poured, squeezed, or shot out of a Super Soaker.
With a name like Chocomize ($6), you might think about a service that lets you customize your chocolate bars. And you'd be correct. Pick your chocolate bark base and add more than 100 different kinds of fruits, nuts, herbs, and candies, or simply select from one of the company's best-selling bars, like the Smores Bar with graham teddies and mini-marshmallows, the Candy Bar with gummi bears, chocolate candy, and Nerds, or the Spicy Special Bar with black peppercorns, mini chipotles, and cayenne pepper.
Made for athletes in search of a comfortable shoe to wear while traveling, the Vans UltraRange Rapidweld is one of the most versatile in the brand's arsenal.

While normal sweats are great for lounging around the house, most aren't ideal for getting out in the temperatures seen daily throughout the winter months. Coldsmoke's Windbloc Joggers were made for just that kind of weather, using Polartec Windbloc fleece that blocks virtually all wind with an exterior that's extremely water repellent. You get the feel of fleece joggers on the inside, while the outside looks more polished and wards off the elements. Made in California, think of the Windbloc Joggers as more of your go-to casual pant than workout garb, as the insulation factor makes them great for braving the elements, but not spin class.

Aside from Elvis, BBQ is arguably Memphis' most famous export, and you won't find a better example than Corky's BBQ ($15-$270). This Mid-South staple is available online in sauce form, but if you're wanting to skip the cooking and go straight to chowing down, you can order ready to reheat ribs, chicken, pork, or beef, either by itself or accompanied by beans and even pecan pies. No word on whether bibs are also included, but you might want some around just in case.
