I have a male friend out in California, and I really want to knit him something. He's a simple guy with simple tastes. Wrist cuffs wouldn't be his thing.

The temp rarely gets down to 40 degrees.

What should I try?

You could knit a belt, think out of the box a bit, maybe hemp? Then get an awesome belt buckle to go with it.

A thin manly scarf would work. Even though it rarely gets below 40, to the people who live out there, 40 is cold, and most would love a nice scarf for those nights.

Some knit hats can be worn anytime, I know tons of guys who wear them year long, so don't count that out either. Jeep caps are really hot right now.

I don't know how good of a knitter you are, but you could always knit a sweater vest or cardigan or sweater for those slightly cooler nights.

Anybody can use a thin afghan or a  pair of socks for cool nights.

Just a few ideas, I don't know. Good luck
