Do you have gifts picked out for the guys on your list yet?
Ooooookay. I guess it’s time to bite the bullet here. It doesn’t quite feel like Christmastime to me, but with red cups and decorations popping up already, I’m at the very least feeling the holiday spirit. (Don’t worry Thanksgiving, I haven’t forgotten about you!)
I’m kicking off holiday gift guides with the hardest people to shop for: the men in our lives. Whether it’s your little brother, your cousin, your best friend or boyfriend. Your dad, uncle, grandpa.

My top picks:
Shoulder Patch Sweater | While a sweater sounds generic in terms of clothing, they’re my go-to gift for Garrett. (He also has an obsession with sweaters so that helps.) I find that guys typically aren’t going to buy themselves a nice sweater, but that’s not to say they wouldn’t love to have and wear a really dapper one! I love the patches on this one.
Drone | One of Garrett’s friends gave him a drone and it’s the coolest little toy. This would be great for any guy of any age. I think my dad would have a lot of fun with it too. It takes a little practice, which I think is a good 80% of the fun after opening the box. The thing drives me absolutely insane…. but it’s a great gift.
Patagonia | I’ve yet to meet a guy who doesn’t look great in Patagonia. They’re a great option for gifts if he’s not super into fashion since the items are practical and he can wear them every day if he wants. This quarter zip is great for men in their mid-twenties; for college guys, I’d go with this Snap-T or this cozy fleece.
Bacon Making Kit | I mean…. it’s bacon. Seems like a win/win for everyone 😉
Monogrammed Buoy Razor | This is the cutest razor I’ve ever seen. (And it works with Mach3 blades so he can use it for years to come.) Get monogrammed ones for everyone’s stockings.
Bose Soundlink | This is one of those splurgy gifts that you don’t know you need until you have it. At under $129, it’s a great deal for Bose. I bought one for our apartment and use it every day. It’s portable and small with fantastic quality.
Pom Pom Hat | You know that “cool guy” on your list? This is for him. The retro logo absolutely makes this hat!
Dopp Kit | This is an essential item for guys on the go. This version is masculine but not over the top fancy so it can be thrown into a gym bag or a suitcase during a work trip.
Monogrammed Steak Brand + Cutting Board | I feel like this ends up on my list every year. I just think it’s so fun for the grill masters out there who are proud of what they grill!
