Gift Guide: Gifts for the Guys

Gift Guide for the Guys

The last of my gift guides is finally here. I could have finished this one on Saturday night. Instead I took a bath for the first time in six months and relaxed with an interesting book. It was worth it!

There isn’t anything groundbreaking on this list. They are all tried and true basics, most of which my brother or Jim personally own and love! Today is the last day to order and get free shipping for many of these. If you’ve been procrastinating, you still have time!

A quick note about Mack Wheldon. You’ll notice I included both a pair of pants and henley on this list. The underwear, socks and tee shirts are also great if you’re looking for some basics. They have really high quality products. This is definitely not sponsored, but I wish it were!


PANTS ($98) // SOCKS ($12) // JACKET ($99) // SHIRT ($80, sale for $40) // COLOGNE ($122) // SNEAKERS ($95) // HENLEY ($68) // WALLET ($65) // AIR PODS ($160)

PANTS: Jim bought these pants a few months ago and wears them at least once a week. They are great for lounging or running around on the weekend. These sweatpants are also a hit with both Jim and my brother.

SOCKS: Socks are a no brainer stocking stuffer. I mentioned this new to me brand last Friday and wish I would have known about them earlier.

JACKET: It wouldn’t be a gift guide without a Patagonia item. The better sweater is a staple in my family. If you’re looking for something different, my brother sent me this flannel lined trucker jacket asking for my opinion. I’m a fan!

SHIRT: This shirt is festive without being over the top. It would look great on Christmas Eve.

COLOGNE: I rotate between gifting two Tom Ford colognes: a lighter scent and one a little woodsier for winter.

SNEAKERS: My brother, Jim and Lawson all own a pair of Allbirds sneakers. They are comfortable, stylish and well made. Lawson has worn through the wool on his toes, but there’s a layer underneath that seems unbreakable.

HENLEY: At the same time he bought the pants, Jim ordered this henley. It fits perfect and looks great.

WALLET: After a certain age, every guy should have a high quality wallet. It was one of the first gifts I ever gave Jim (he has this one) and probably the only one he got that year.

AIR PODS: I got Jim a pair of Air Pods (also here) for his birthday earlier this year. I’m not sure which one of us uses them more. I’ve ran 10 miles and they never moved.
