Gift Guide for Him

It’s been snowing all morning over here & the girls are at school, so I got to spend the morning drinking coffee and putting together my most favorite gift guide of the year! Brandon did a lot of this himself, he sent me a list of all of his favorite things and some things he has been wanting. I am hoping he wants that sweatshirt in a size Small, because I officially need it.

1. Camp Brand Goods Crewneck // Camp Brand Goods is forever our favorite place to shop for day to day graphic tees and sweatshirts. They’re a family owned company out of Canada and truly they are always the softest, best fitting clothes. I look forward to every single new season of their clothes, trust me, the men in your life would love a sweatshirt or tshirt from Camp Brand and will probably never take it off.

2. Apple Airpods // Brandon has been obsessed with his forever, and finally convinced me to get a pair, even though I swore they couldn’t be any different from the ones with cords. Per usual, I was wrong, they are freaking amazing and anyone who is on the phone often or listens to music during the day should have these!

3.ย MVMT Watch // Watches are always the most perfect gift for guys because can one ever have too many?! MVMT is our favorite watch brand, I love the brown leather and the pop of blue on the white face. Also obsessed with this one!!!

4. Drone Quadcopter // I don’t think there’s a guy out there who wouldn’t be thrilled to receive one of these as a gift. My husband, dad and brothers are all obsessed with them and they always provide tons of Christmas day entertainment.

5. Dollar Shave Club Subscription // We have both been using DSC for years, not only the best razors for guys, but gals as well! So you can totally steal from his monthly subscription. A super thoughtful and functional gift!

6. Weekender Duffel (on sale!!) // This is Brandon’s everyday bag, I asked him why this one over any other option, and he said because he can fit gym shoes and dopp kit, but also isn’t too big to shove in a locker or put in overhead storage when traveling. Solid answer!ย 

7. Front Pocket Wallet // I got Brandon this wallet for his birthday over the summer, and we give it a ten out of ten for both style and function!!

8. Sonos Speaker // This was our Black Friday splurge and I’m never looking back. Worth every penny for the amazing sound quality and fun ways you can control it all from your phone!! Prepare to be addicted and to want them in every room of your house.

9. Best Made Weather Station // I got this for Brandon for our ten year wedding anniversary, it is a weather station that the old man in him just really loves. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Another fun idea would be this Brass Pocket Tape or these Solid Brass Dice which would be a great stocking stuffer!

10. Chukka Slippers (on sale!!) // I want these for myself. Seriously these look SO warm but also like you could totally wear them to the grocery store. Sign my cold, lazy self up!! But alas, I will get them for Brandon. And just borrow them on occasion. On the topic of shoes, Brandon most recently bought these, he swears they are the best brand of shoes for the outdoors.

A few more fun stocking stuffer ideas, these beard trimmers, a Carhartt hatย and a cribbage board are all great options!

Hope this helps you with your shopping this year, can’t wait to hear if any of these land under your tree this year! Gift Guide for Her (aka. my wishlist!!) coming tomorrow!! XO

Gift Guide for Little Ones

It’s that time of year! Our holiday gift guide for little ones is here! Each year I look forward to putting this together, with a little input from my girls and the things they are asking for (aka. a kazoo, beanbag chair and stuffed octopus!) and lots of other cute things that I think would make for the most fun and magical gifts!

one // two // three // four // five // six // seven // eight

 

This year, the girls will be getting some new dress up stuff, boots, fun jewelry & bags. They spend most of their time playing “concert” and just dressing up in general, so it is fitting that they get clothes & accessories. They will also get some books and art supplies (this jewelry set is going to be a big hit!!), and some outfits for their dolls, but keeping the toys to a minimum. The girls are also going to be using some of the money in their piggy banks to buy presents for each other which they will pick out completely on their own, I cannot wait to see what they choose!!

I have also created this list of favorite things for kids all from amazon, including tons of good stocking stuffer ideas & a few things for boys that we are buying for our nephews!

Hope this has given you a few good ideas as you are shopping this year! If you are interested in other gift guides (for men, for friends, for yourself, etc.) let me know & I would be happy to put them together!! XO
