Gifts-2

Our discerning editors have culled the best-of-the-best gifts available in Philly. Each day until Christmas, we’ve reveal our 25 top gift picks to suit everyone on your list. Happy shopping!

A fellow editor described these boots at the “cooler, locally made version of Red Wing Boots,” and I agree. They are by Waltzing Matilda, a leather goods company based in Wayne.  The hand-sewn Horween leather boots feature seven eyelets, rawhide laces, a rugged Christy sole and—the best part—a (very unobtrusive) hand-stitched logo at the heel. It’s craftsmanship at its very best.

The Details: Waltzing Matilda Penobscot boots, $326 at waltzingmatildausa.com.

Give To: Your boyfriend/husband.
