Being a man is more than just watching sports, grilling, and drinking beer. Men are the hunters and gatherers of our society. They are the able-bodied laborers who build things, fix things, and design the blueprints of our cities. According to Dev Ranhawa, as the pioneers of our species, there are certain items that every man should own whether he thinks he’ll need them or not.
- A Passport
A passport is an essential item if you plan on traveling. Even if you never leave the country, it can still be used as a valid form of photo identification for most government agencies.
- A Multipurpose Tool
Whether you need to cut a rope or tighten a screw, a multipurpose tool is a life-saving essential item that every man should own.
- Work Gloves
Even if you’re a leader in the business world who owns a closet full of 3-piece suits, you will undoubtedly engage in some chore or hobby that requires a pair of heavy-duty work gloves. Buy a pair.
- Hiking Boots
Sometimes a man just needs to get out into nature and explore. Always keep a pair of hiking boots in your closet just in case you need an impromptu escape into the great outdoors.
- A Car Jack
If you own a car, rest assured it’s going to break down on you at some point. You should always have a car jack stashed safely in the trunk of your car along with other tools necessary to service your vehicle should it encounter mechanical issues.
- A Lantern
Electricity is a fine thing, but during a storm or a natural disaster, electricity can become a scarce thing. Always keep an oil or battery-powered lantern in your home in case of an emergency.
