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.

The Perfect Father’s Day Gift and DIY Leather Gift Tags

Father's Day Gift Idea and DIY Leather Gift Tag

Father’s Day is this Sunday and in case you’re still looking for that special gift,  I wanted to share a bit more about one of the products featured in my Father’s Day Gift Guide. And I’ve got some gift wrap inspiration to share with you today too!

Shopping for dad (and men in general) can be tough. Unique men’s gifts are hard to come by.  I was recently introduced to Harry’s, an online shop for men’s shaving and grooming products. The fine folks at Harry’s sent a few products for my husband to try and after using them he gave the products two-thumbs up.

Since my hubby is a member of the FMWH Club (aka–fine men without hair) and uses a razor to shave his head and his face, I decide to do a little Q & A with him to share why he love the Harry’s products.

Harry's--Men's Shaving Products--Father's Day Gift Idea

 

Me:  How does the Harry’s razor compare to the drugstore razors you typically buy?

Him:  The first thing I noticed about the razor was the multiple blades on the razor head.  Multiple razors mean you’ll get a close, smooth shave.  I also liked the cushioned handle which felt good in my hand.

Me:  What did you think about the products included in the Winston Set?

Him:  I liked the combination of items in the set and that the packaging and graphics were simple and not fussy.

fyi–the Winston Set comes with a 4 oz. Foaming Shave Gel, Razor, 3 Blade Cartridges and a Blade Cover, all for $25.

Harry's--Men's Shaving Products--Father's Day Gift Idea

Me:  I know you like a shave cream that lathers good, how did Harry’s Foaming Shave Gel and Shave Cream compare to other products you’ve use?

Him:  It only took a dime size amount of Harry’s shave gel to get a good lather.  The consistency of the gel was great for shaving my head and helped to prevent nicks from the blade.  I used the  Shave Cream on my face and liked how easy it was to move the blade around my face and neck.

note:  Harry’s blades were specifically designed for face shaving but they can be used on the head, especially for seasoned shavers like those in the FMWH Club.

Harry's--Men's Shaving Products

Me:  You like to put aftershave on your face and head once you’ve shaved so what did you think of Harry’s Post Shave Balm?

Him:  Typically post shave products make my head sting when I put them.  There was a little sting with Harry’s shave balm but it had a cooling effect on my skin.  And it didn’t leave my head or face dried out and tight like other products.

Harry's--Men's Shaving Products

Me:  The last product you tired was the Face Lotion?  What did you think of it?

Him:  I don’t like heavy products on my face so Harry’s was good because it wasn’t heavy or oily.

Harry's--Men's Shaving Products

Now that you know what my hubby thought of the Harry’s products, let me tell you something I loved about it. I loved the way the products smelled.  All of the items have a fresh, clean scent which lasted throughout the day.

Harry’s products are sold exclusively through their e-commerce site and their New York barber shop, Harry’s Corner Shop.  Selling online allows them to offer high-quality shaving products at prices well below their competition.  And Harry’s has a great subscription plan which will deliver blades and products directly to your door based on how often someone shaves.  This is a great service since most men don’t like shopping.

Now that we’ve got your Father’s Day gift covered, here’s how to make you own DIY Leather Gift Tag to use with your gift wrap.

I love paper gift tags but lately I’ve been making my own  fabric tags.

Fabric gift tags are super easy to make and all you need to make your own is a few inexpensive supplies.

Supplies:

How to make fabric gift tags:

  1. Place fabric face side down and trace the outline of the paper tag on to the back of the fabric.
  2. Punch a hole in the fabric using the hole it the paper tag as a guide.
  3. Cut out the fabric tag.
  4. Cover the shipping tag with adhesive glue and attach the fabric to the tag.
  5. Attach the grommet in the tag hole.
  6. Write a message on the back of the tag and you’re ready to wrap your gift.

tip: You can leave the front of your tags plain or add an embellishment like an adhesive monogram that you can pick up at the craft store.

Essentials for a Well Stocked Gift Closet

Outside the holiday season, the spring and early summer months are prime gift giving times with graduations, weddings, mother’s day, father’s day and many of my friends and family’s birthdays taking place during these months.  Shopping at the last-minute for gifts is not something I like to do so I tend to keep a stash of essential gifts on hand in my gift closet.  These are items that have universal appeal and items that can easily be paired with another piece if the occasion calls for a little something more.  Here’s a look at the items I like to gift most and always keep in my gift closet.

Stocking Stuffers for Him and Her

I love buying stocking stuffers for my family.  There’s a thrill in going out and looking for unique items that I know each person will enjoy.

When it comes to stocking stuffers I do have a few ‘rules’ I like to follow…

1)  The item has to be something the person probably wouldn’t buy for themselves

2)  I look for stocking stuffers that are fun and whimsical

3)  I like to find an item or two that are really practical

4)  I always add a treat to the stockings like some holiday candy or a favorite snack

Here’s a few of my stocking stuffer picks for 2013!
