Gifts for Him

A gift guide for guys has come highly requested! Sometimes I find it hard to be creative with gifts for Stephen as we've been together for 10 Christmases (and his birthday is two days after Christmas) but every so often, I manage to surprise him! Our first married Christmas, I got him an Xbox (which I had adamantly told him I didn't think he should have - ha!) I often tend to get him clothes but I've found that he genuinely enjoys getting them as they're not always something he picks out for himself. 

Gifts for my dad can be hard as well, but this year I think my brother has a few ideas up his sleeve. 

Here are a few ideas that may help you with shopping for the guys in your life this year!

  1. Vest - I always love finding a good vest for Stephen. He's hot natured and with our mild climate, he often reaches for a vest over a jacket. 
  2. Barrington Laptop Bag or Luggage - I've been slowly adding to Stephen's Barrington collection and I think he genuinely really likes each piece. Due to the leather quality, some of the pieces are more of a splurge but the items I would suggest are the laptop bag and leather duffle. He also uses the dop kit every time we go anywhere and I most recently added the garment bag to his collection!
  3. Speaker - I feel like this is one of those things on every single gift guide but a portable Bluetooth speaker is such a great item to have. 
  4. Concert Tickets - We are always talking about how we don't attend enough concerts. Does the guy in your life love music? Find a favorite artist and purchase tickets! It's a gift you can experience together. 
  5. Tech Gloves - These tech gloves look great and are by The North Face - they could be perfect for our trip to Colorado!
  6. Socks - When you were little, socks never seemed like a great gift but I love getting socks in my stocking now. Make them fun ones, and that's even better!
  7. Leather chair - This is certainly a splurge but if your husband or dad is wanting to upgrade "his" chair, Pottery Barn has some beautiful options.
  8. Wine/Beer Club - Is the guy you're shopping for a beer or wine connoisseur? Subscribing them to a wine or beer club could be a great gift!
  9. Harry's Razor - I put this razor in Stephen's stocking last year and he still loves it. 
  10. Duluth Trading Undies - Another good stocking stuffer that was a recommendation from Stephen himself haha! Duluth Trading offers a selection of underwear for men so if you need a stocking stuffer that's a little more personal, this is a good one. 
  11. Leather Wallet - Sometimes a guy may want to pick out his own wallet, but I've given both my dad and Stephen wallets in the past that they used until they were worn out!
  12. Portable Charger - Stephen and I both use our portable chargers (stocking stuffers from my in-laws) and they make such a great gift! I always pack mine on trips when I'm not sure if I'll have access to an outlet. 
A few other great gifts that aren't on the list:
  • Lake Pajama sweatpants - Stephen gave me a second pair of Lake Pajamas after I couldn't stop raving about the pair I bought and now they have launched a men's line! These sweatpants look amazing!
  • Personalized artwork - I have a few local artists I use for my art gifts and have gifted my dad a few pieces in the past! Alley Hunt Art created a gorgeous canvas of my dad's boat that he has displayed in his home office. 
  • Coffee shop gift cards - My husband has his favorite coffee shops he likes to make a quick stop in on the way to work, so adding a few gift cards to his stocking is always a win. 
  • Weekend Experience - Is there something your boyfriend, brother, husband or dad has been wanting to do? Plan out a fun weekend and surprise them with it on Christmas morning.
