Did everyone have a nice Thanksgiving holiday? We sure did, boyfriend and I traveled to my parent's for a low-key dinner and visit. We had to cut our time a little short and travel back to school on Saturday, as we are finishing up the last of our schoolwork and looking ahead toward Christmas break! Since Thanksgiving was so late this year, we are scrambling to finish projects and studying before we're off again in two weeks.
Am I the only one just now realizing that Christmas is fast approaching?! Eeep, I haven't even started my shopping! Often I never know what to get the people in my life, and have been thinking long and hard about the perfect gift(s). When I give gifts, I like them to be thoughtful and special. Either something that person has wanted, or something that reminds me of them. I'm a pretty serious gift giver! ;)
I don't know about you but I used to never know what to get the men in my life, which seems to be a common theme among women. The Mister helped me put together this little gift guide with some ideas of what your man (dad, boyfriend, husband, brother) really wants.
The Village Candle in Black Bamboo We LOVE this candle, my man is a bit of a candle fanatic and this one is a great man smell. It's not too overpowering. We usually find these candles at TJ Maxx!
Chemex Classic Series Glass Coffee Maker Have you tried Chemex coffee? Chemex coffee comes out pure and can be made an strong as you like without any bitterness. Yes, please!
Higher Grounds Trading Co. Coffee This is a local Michigan coffee that is both fair trade, organic, and delicious. All of their blends are phenomenal and their story is pretty cool too.
Woven Silk Tie I know this is one of those cliche gifts that "men don't actually want", but my man has requested a nice one for interviews and business related events. Besides, they need at least one nice one!
Mercer Cutlery Genesis 6-Piece Forged Knife Block Set T likes to cook, but we often find that being college students we never have the right tools. This knife set will help solve that, and look good on the counter too!
Thoughts for Young Men HIGHLY recommended for the young men in your life. It's a sort, a quick read and is clear, straightforward, and convicting.
Bath & Body Works Men's Cologne in Twilight Woods I bought this cologne for T last year and we both love it. It's not too strong, and the price is right!
Nike Rio II Warm-Up Pant He'll love them... and you can steal them! ;)
What would you add to this list? Would the men in your life like any of these items?
