Next up in my gift guides are ideas for the guys in your life whether it’s your father, brother or significant other.


For the outdoorsy guy, you can’t go wrong with a camping pillow, first aid kit or the complete outdoors encyclopedia. They don’t have to be outdoorsy to appreciate a YETI cooler. These coolers have a cult-like following for good reason; they keep your items cold for days.


It might be cliche, but I do love gifting clothes to the men in my life. I truly enjoy picking out a piece I think they’d look good in. Bonus points if it’s a new to them brand or it stretches their style comfort zone. My go to gifts are a bonobos flannel shirt, dressed up sneakers from one of my favorite brands and workout clothes. If they are in need of some style help, a subscription to GQ is the way to go.


The philips hue might be my favorite idea on this list. Maybe because I use it every.single.day. If you’re not familiar with hue, it’s a wireless lightbulb system. You put the lightbulbs in the lamp of your choice and then are able to control the lighting via an app on your phone. I never have to get out of bed to turn off a lamp. It’s pretty fantastic. (This also means I am quite lazy.) We have them in our living room (3 different lamps), master bedroom and kids room.

  3. I agree with you, giving clothes is always a good idea for men – especially something they wouldn’t necessarily buy themselves like a cashmere sweater or a nice scarf. Great guide!
