Holiday Gift Guide: For The Mister

Well… It’s been a rough couple of days, but now let’s get back to the good stuff. Being kind. Helping out. Giving back. Extra big bear hugs. Smiles to strangers. And getting to work.

Guess what? It’s holiday gift guide time! Can you believe it?! Each week I’ll be sharing a different holiday gift guide to help you get through this time with little stress and a whole lot of style (and you can totally all of the take credit – I won’t tell.)

This time it’s about the guys (because let’s be honest, we are the ones shopping this early, right ladies?).

For all of you wives who have no idea what to get your husbands, I feel your pain. Each year for every holiday I’m stumped. So, I’ve started a bit earlier this year, searching high and low for the best gifts for the men in our lives.

I’ve even run this guide by my husband, and he’s given his stamp of approval on each item. Actually, he received this personalized whiskey barrel as a birthday gift from his brother and sister-in-law, and it was a big hit. You also can’t go wrong with THE softest and best flannel there ever was.

I’ve also included my top choices for Dad gifts below. Just click through the widgets below to shop. And please let me know what kind of gift guides you’d like to see!

And remember, if you need help with shopping or ideas, you can always shoot me an email and I will try my best to help you find the perfect gift!

Be kind today…




And of course, we can’t forget about the dads. Whether it’s for your dad, or for your husband from the little ones, here are the best Dad gifts out there…

    Great ideas! I still haven’t decided what to get my husband for Christmas this year. I usually give him a bit longer to ask for something specific, but if he doesn’t give me his list to Mrs. Claus soon, she’ll just have to pick! The whiskey barrel does look like an awesome idea!

    Those cuff links are pretty awesome! My husband would love them.
