Bean Boots // Nordstrom "no-iron" Button Down Shirt // S'Well Water Bottle (I am obsessed with mine)This gift guide probably takes me the longest every year so I thought I would knock it out for y'all early! The majority of these ideas have been tried and true by me and are sure to be perfect come Christmas morning :) They're perfect for your guy, brother, dad, father-in-law, grandpa, etc.
When it comes to guys it's easy to stick with the basics (the things they need and want, not clutter) and then take it up a notch. Find a way to personalize it: a specific color, a monogram or his favorite team logo. If you buy him boots or shoes get him a pair of socks to go with them. Buying him a pair of sunglasses? Grab a cool pair of croakies so he doesn't lose them. Taking the gift a step further shows that you really put some extra TLC into gift giving. Plus it makes the gift wearable right away so if you're trying to style your man for a party that night… well, he'll get the idea ;)
My boy's favorite gifts have been: Bean Boots (he wears them to every tailgate and during the winter), Herschel Duffel Bag (perfect weekender bag to visit me!), Smathers & Branson belt (I got him the VT logo… so yep, it's his favorite), and the classic Wayfarer Ray-Bans (I got him these for our first anniversary and they're his only sunglasses).
Because we all need some extra inspiration… here are my favorite "guy retailers" gift guides!
