Last week, I covered what I would put on my wish list this holiday season. This week, I’d like to offer up a couple great ideas for the guys in your life. These are all great suggestions for your significant other, father, brother, grandfather, and any other man in your life who, like the men in my life, are almost impossible to shop for!
Friday Favorites: Guy Wish List
Idea #1: A Monthly Subscription Service
There is nothing better than a gift that keeps on giving, right? A subscription can be a great gift you can tailor to your budget and your guy’s interests. These are my two favorite I’ve seen so far:
Dollar Shave Club:
If your guy shaves on a regular basis, Dollar Shave Club would be a great gift! You can customize their subscription to what style razor he uses, how often he shaves, and your budget. My husband never shaves, but if he did, I’d seriously consider this for him!
If your guy drinks on a regular basis (just kidding…sort of), consider signing him up for Saloonbox. Each month, they will send him a box containing everything he’ll need to make a signature cocktail – and enough left over to share! I think my husband would love this, since he’s always experimenting with new drinks (but doesn’t like spending a lot for ingredients he may not like or only use once). If it works out well, you can always get yourself one too!
Idea #2: Upgrade His Everyday Favorites
My husband cheaps out on damn near everything, so I often try to find gifts for him that are upgrades of something he’s already worn out, or something he’d never buy for himself. Here are some great ideas for ways to upgrade your guy’s everyday things:
Archer Glengoolie Rocks Glasses
Glengoolie is the name the show Archer uses for their scotch bottles. It’s a bit of an inside joke, and your guy will love these glasses if he watches the show (especially if they come with a Saloonbox subscription too)!
Kiel James Patrick American Summer Shirt
Kiel James Patrick makes amazingly preppy shirts, jewelry, and accessories. These shirts look comfortable, will last forever, and have the added bonus of being made in the USA (a rarity nowadays)! It also comes in 8 other designs, and they even have a scalloped-collar version for ladies, if you get a little jealous…
Scrabble Deluxe Wooden Edition with Rotating Game Board
I don’t know anyone who doesn’t already own Scrabble – but this would be an amazing upgrade
(especially if yours is so old it’s missing pieces)! It’s beautiful enough to keep out all the time, and will encourage some (hopefully) friendly competition!
Oggi Copper Plated Stainless Steel Flask
My husband keeps hinting that he wants a flask, so of course I had to put one on here! I love that this one is copper, and holds 8 ounces – plenty to share, right?
I hope you all have a great weekend, and if you’re not done with your holiday shopping yet, I hope this gave you some great ideas!
