Holiday Gift Guide | Gifts For Him

I don’t know about the rest of you ladies but when it comes to buying Christmas gifts for men, I find myself stumped more often than not.

Take my husband for instance.  Whenever I ask him what he wants for Christmas, his typical response is “whatever you get me is great.” What’s a girl to do with that?  And just how many sweaters does one man need?

Then there’s my brother.  He is a ‘techie’ and loves electronics and computer stuff but if he wants something, he buys it for himself.  When Christmas rolls around, I’m left clueless as to what to get him.

So in honor of all the hard-to-buy-for-men out there, here are some great gift ideas I think will garner a big hug on Christmas morning.

Gift Guide:  Gifts For Him

1 //  I love when a man wears a suit and takes the time to add a pocket square.  It’s such a simple detail that adds so much style.  This 5 pc. Hankerchief Set comes in a 20 different pattern and color sets and is just $12.99!

2 //  Another fashion staple I think every man should own in a set of cuff links.  This monogrammed pair of Brass Cuff Links is classic and timeless.  $40.00

3 //  I shared my husbands review of Harry’s shaving products earlier this year so this gift suggestion comes from the both of us.  Limited Edition Storm Gray Shave Set–$30.00

4 //  We received the Amazon Echo from my techie brother a couple of years ago and we love it.  There are so many cool features beyond playing music and getting a daily news update.  Snag is baby while it’s currently on sale at Amazon. $79.99 (affiliate link)

5 //  I bought my hubby this a few Christmas’ ago and this Breville Panini Press & Grill has become his favorite kitchen tool.  He loves to cook steaks on it or grill sandwiches on the weekend.  $129.95

6 // This just might be one of the coolest gifts your guy will ever receive.  And if he’s a football fan, he’ll love this Heated Stadium Seat.  It’s cordless, lightweight, and portable so he can take it anywhere. And the rechargeable heating system provides up to six hours of heat so he can stay comfy in the cold. $61.95  p.s.  this might be a one for him, one for you kind of gift if you’re a football fan too.

7 // When it comes to water bottles with a masculine look, the Swell Teakwood Water Bottle wins hands down.  And I love that you can have it personalized with a monogram too! $35.00 + $10 for monogram

8 // This is for the man who does a lot of traveling and hates to iron.  The Harvey Tie Roll holds several ties and keeps them wrinkle-free when traveling. $99 + $9.50 to monogram

9 //  This is the perfect watch for a summer vacation or for casual outfits.  The Ryder Nylon Watch is available in two colors. $99.00

10 //  My husband is obsessive about his shoes so this will make a great gift he can throw in his briefcase or keep in the car.  It’s also great for traveling.  Portable Shoe Shine Kit–$20.00

11//  Anything with retro styling is popular theses days.  If the men in your life love photography, the Fujifilm Digital Camera is a great compact camera they’ll love taking everywhere.  The FUJIFILM is the first X-Series camera with a touchscreen display that rotates 180 degrees.  $699.00.

So there you have it…my top picks for men’s gifts this Christmas.

Gifting 101: A few gifts you should be buying NOW for Christmas

I’ve always tried to stay one step ahead when it comes to holiday gift giving.  I usually take advantage of the after-Christmas sales and pick up a few gift items for the coming year. January is a great month to begin creating a gift list and checking out stores for sales.  Several of my favorite stores have amazing clearance events going on right now and there are some fabulous items to be had.  I’ve rounded up a few of my faves in case you want to get a jump on your 2015 holiday shopping.

Mark and Graham is one of  my favorite online shops and when it comes to monogrammed accessories, they have some amazing items to choose from.  All of their monogrammed items make great gifts for Christmas or any other gift giving occasion for that matter.

Slide1

Gift shopping for men is always a challenge.  This Leather Credit Card Case–($19.99) is a great buy and makes the perfect gift men {and women}.  And if you have someone graduating this year, it’s a great grad gift too.
A classic like this Monogrammed Weekender–($119.99) is a gift that will last a lifetime.
Who wouldn’t love this Leather iPad Envelope–($59.00).  Available in 9 colors.
  I’m all about zippered pouches that I can fill with essentials and throw in a larger handbag–so many uses for an item like this.  Striped Zip Pouches-($34.99-$35.00)

 If I’m out shopping the day after Christmas, Pottery Barn is one of the stores I always go to.  I love finding holiday ornaments, tabletop items and textiles on sale.  Here are a few items that I think are worth adding to your gift closet.

Slide2

How fun is this Globe Ice Bucket–($54.99).  Because it has a chalkboard exterior it can be used for any occasion and when not in use as an ice bucket, I think it would make a pretty cute nut or candy bowl.
Luxury at a great price.  Faux Oversized Mohair Throw ($39.99-$55.00)
These Alphabet Tags-($3.99) are just adorable and their classic design means you can use them now until Christmas.  And don’t forget that tags like them can also be used a napkin rings, wine bottle tags or as holiday ornaments.

Crate and Barrel is also a store worth shopping after the holidays.  Here are a few decorative items that are definitely worth buying.

If you’re looking for a unique gift for someone who loves to decorate I highly recommend these Brass Letter Art pieces.  They are a great buy at $9.97 each and are available in letters and numbers.
January is a great month to pick up seasonal candles and these Branch Taper Candles are definitely a stylish steal.  $2.97
Stocking up on wrapping paper after the holidays can save you a lot of money when Christmas rolls around next year. I love the elegant style and color of this Lacy Snowflake Wrapping Paper and love the price even more–$3.58!
When it comes to setting a holiday table, you can never go wrong with classic white dinnerware.  This Nordic Plate ($2.47) is really pretty and has a design that will work from fall through Christmas.

There are lots of deals to be had right now when shopping the after Christmas sales so start making that list of checking it twice.  Christmas is only 339 days away.
