San Francisco's rainy season appears to be in full swing these days, and while I'm encountering plenty of puddles, thankfully (or not) city life doesn't afford much mud or slush. For those of you in chillier climates — like the poor Buffalo citizens! — the roads may have already had their first of many plows. To keep you from tracking that snow and sludge all through your homes this Winter, a boot brush and/or scraper is a must have. Whether you want a cutesy one, like Gump's cast iron Squirrel Boot Brush ($38), or a masculine, utilitarian version, like Gempler's Doormat with Bristles ($80) from DWR. Just click the product images to shop the rest of this roundup.
P.S. This is also a terrific holiday gift idea for new homeowners, friends in Winter wonderlands, or men who have everything — except one of these!
