Men's Holiday Gift Guide

Friday, December 11, 2015

You've now seen my gift guide for women... so what's next? 
A Men's Gift Guide!
The readership of my blog naturally, is more women... so why am I posting a men's gift guide?
Because, if you're anything like me, every single year you struggle trying figure out what to get your husband/boyfriend, brother, father, or any other male in your life.
Why are men SO hard to shop for?
I think it's because they're actually quite simple and just don't really need/want anything unless it costs way more than a Christmas budget...
So this year I thought about what Hunter really uses/could use and did some research on smaller companies so I knew I would get the best bang for my buck.
And... Here is what I came up with!

1. Thread Wallets | These are the coolest, most convenient, and stylish wallets I have found. So many men's wallets are bulky and can be easily seen in the pocket of jeans. Especially since skinny jeans are now all the rage. This wallet allows you to carry everything you need, yet still have room for your phone and anything else you need in your pocket. I'm loving ALL of the designs thread wallets has to offer and I love that they change them out seasonally. Another great feature of these wallets, is that they have a key ring to attach your keys, gym pass, lanyard, etc. Thread Wallets are made out of tightly-knit elastic. Your cards will remain secure while your wallet maintains a slim profile which sits comfortably in your front or back pocket. Nervous your card or money are going to fall out? Watch this video and thank me for introducing you to this awesome company later ;)

2. Blenders Eyewear | These shades are awesome! We are loving the quality of them and are so excited that Hunt has an awesome pair of sunglasses to bring to California. We're loving the shape, the fit, and the design. I'm also loving the story behind Blenders! Being a Southern California native and going to the beach often growing up, I was so excited to see that this company started in California! They have so many different designs of sunglasses to choose from so you're guaranteed to find one pair you love, however, I'm sure you'll find more ;)

3. Jigsaw Furnishings | Okay, this thing is SO cool! I've never seen anything like it and I'm so excited I was able to find this company! This really is a great gift for men! It's a valet for your phone, wallet, keys, pen, watch, glasses, etc. The assemble is SO easy and it is great for travel! 
The Catchall™ is designed to provide a place for several items. It has slots for key chains, glasses, sunglasses, necklaces, bracelets, bluetooth headset, or headphones. It can be used as a charging station, and there is no need to unplug the phone and thread the charger through a hole. Just slide the cable through the slot. There is also a slot directly below the phone charging area to allow your charger cable to pass-through. The Catchall™ can easily be stored or packed. Assembly is also as easy as just sliding the two pieces together. The Catchall™ is not a permanent fixture that you have to screw to your wall. It goes wherever you want it to go! It has made keeping all of Hunter's things together SO easy! I also love the simplistic design.
4. Arvo Watches | I think we all know by now that Arvo is one of my favorite brands out there! I seriously wear my watch every single day and Hunter LOVES his too. I love the style of these watches as well as the great quality. Hunter and I both continue to get excited every single time we put our watches on. They are so classy and look great with anything. They can easily be dressed up or dressed down. Every single time we wear these watches we get compliments and people asking where we got them. They are very affordable, especially for the quality you are getting! However, my favorite part is that the band can be switched out! Seriously, how cool is that?! So, when you buy one watch, you're actually buying like 20 different watches because you can easily switch out the band to create a whole new look! I could go on and on about how much I love Arvo but I'll leave it at this: You NEED one of these watches!

5. Rade Menswear | How classy is that tie?? We all know that one of the best gifts, and most common gift for men is a tie! However, there are millions of styles out there and so many brands to choose from. So what makes one tie stick out from the other? It's all in the quality and design. I'm loving Rade for both of those reasons. We are loving all of the ties from Rade and couldn't be happier with how they look on! They also sell tie bars, lapel pins, and pocket squares. The one stop shop for your needs of dressing up.

6. Simply Skinny Ties | Since we're on the topic of ties, I just had to let you all know about another one of my all time favorite brands. I did an entire post a bit ago on Simply Skinny Ties and I meant every word! These ties really are amazing quality and the designs are like nothing I've seen. Every time Hunter wears one, he tells me how great the knot looks and how easily it ties. One of the coolest parts of Simply Skinny Ties is the back. There are different pieces of fabric that really make them stand out. If you're looking for a unique and great quality tie, head over to Simply Skinny!

7. Waffle Love | I've already talked about how much we love Waffle Love quite a few times but I just have to say it again! Hunter is obsessed with this place and could probably eat one every single day! He is obsessed with Biscoff and cannot get enough of the Biscoff and cream waffle! I'm pretty sure like 3 people in this world actually know the recipe for these waffles and I've never tasted anything even a little bit similar! They are made with dough instead of batter and are all around incredible!

Like what you see?
How would you feel if I told you that you could WIN everything above?!
Pretty awesome right??
That would take care of Christmas completely for the man in your life!
So how do you go about winning all these items?
You know the drill...
Head over to my instagram account to enter ;)

What is the man in your life asking for this year?

All my love,
Aleigh Joy
