ultimate gift guide
Another year passes by and you still have the same problem: finding that gift to spoil your favorite guy. I’ve dated my boyfriend (now fiancé) for over four years, and saying I know him well is an understatement, but I STILL struggle with finding him the perfect gift! My fiancé insists on another basic tie or plaid button-up, or tells me he doesn’t want anything. Even worse, anything he does want, he goes and buys himself. Whether the perfect gift is way out of budget or you don’t even know where to start, I understand your pain! In honor of our struggle, I’ve compiled some options that are sure to impress the special guy in your life this holiday season.
YETI – This 35 quart cooler keeps drinks and even food cold for hours! With the ability to hold 20 cans and ice, it’s perfect for the outdoorsman or even for the guy who loves to tailgate. This is a perfect gift for any guy and is a gift that will be hard to beat!
Smart Battery Case – It’s amazing how resourceful we get when our phones hit 1%, men and women alike. Portal batteries are a good option, but there’s nothing as convenient as a phone case with a built-in battery. This phone case is sleek and protects your phone, while also providing an extra 7 hours of battery life. This is a perfect gift for the tech-obsessed, or anyone who is in need of a better battery life!
Patagonia Wool Socks – Even if you don’t live in an exceptionally cold place, a super comfortable pair of socks are always necessary. These socks provide style and comfort and come in a variety of patterns and colors. These socks are thick enough to provide enough warmth for the extra cold days, without sacrificing a sleek look!
Nike Free Flyknit – Who doesn’t love a pair of tennies? These are sure to make any guy happy, even if he’s not a regular at the gym. They’re lightweight, waterproof, and incredibly comfortable. The best part is, these shoes are affordable, too!
Leather Messenger Bag – This bag is a perfect substitute for a briefcase and is something he will appreciate for years to come. Made with high-quality leather, this bag has multiple compartments for phone chargers, laptop chargers, and any other miscellaneous accessories. Perfect for going from home to the office!
Slim Leather Wallet – Some guys will use the same wallet until it literally is falling apart. However, a wallet may be a difficult gift if the recipient is picky. This wallet is made with high-quality leather and is super thin so it avoids bulk. It’s big enough to fit everything he could ever need, with the convenience of a slim pocket too!
Birchbox Subscription – This is number one on my list this year. Each month Birchbox sends a range of premium grooming samples and a full-size product. They ask a series of questions about skin type and preferences before sending out the customized first box. And even better, it’s only $20 a month!
GoPro Hero – For the adventurous guy in your life, giving him a GoPro is a gift to show some serious love. This camera is waterproof, records high-quality HD video, and even takes photos. A GoPro will be appreciated tremendously, and for years to come . Anything captured with the GoPro can be easily shared through the app, or through all social media channels.
