Mike and I are not doing a gift exchange this year. Because of our wedding, we feel like we are fully gifted out for a while. It’s actually a bit of a relief because we really were graciously showered with gifts from friends and family. We also exchanged nice gifts before our wedding and I think that was more meaningful than Christmas gifts. This year is going to be vastly different in terms of holiday celebrations, so I think our plan will be to come up with new traditions for our first married Christmas instead of gift exchanges.
Sharing some fun gift ideas for the guys in your life. Frankly, I want a few of these for myself, ha!
GIFT GUIDE FOR GUYS
I think anything on the list would make a great gift for most guys.
But wanted to especially highlight a few favorites. Starting with the mini Theragun! We have the full size Theragun (Mike actually got it for me for Christmas a couple of years ago) and we both are obsessed. I love the idea of a mini, pocket-sized version too… I want it! And I gave Mike a couple of Yetis last year for his birthday and they were a massive hit. And my dad got Mike this smart wireless meat thermometer recently and it’s genius. It allows you to monitor whatever you’re grilling right from your phone so you don’t have to be glued to the grill.
Speaking of grilling, we are on a big pizza kick right now. Perfecting the grilled pizza is Mike’s “winter project” and I bought him this book, just for fun! And, would it be a gift guide from me if I didn’t include the Breville espresso maker we have and love? It’s a gift I purchased for myself for my birthday last year and we are ob-sessed with it. Especially during the pandemic, we have looooved having access to our own espresso maker. Also worth noting: Breville released a more affordable model that has all the same main features as the Plus version (I believe the main difference is that the non-plus does not have automatic milk frothing).
