I don’t know about you guys, but I always have the hardest time picking out great gifts for guys. Ladies, no problem. Kids, no problem. My dog, definitely no problem. But I get completely stumped when trying to come up with cool, creative ideas for my brothers, dad and boyfriend. (It probably doesn’t help that when I ask what they want for Christmas or birthdays, all they tell me are gift cards and socks. Sigh, men.)
In any case, I got my creative juices flowing this holiday season—and may or may not have consulted a certain someone named Harrison—to come up with some fun ideas that every guy on your list will love, and at three different price points! Check ’em out:
Cover his wardrobe basics with pieces like boxers, bow ties, belts, scarves and, yes, those pesky socks, and help him get his face in tip-top shape with a shaving starter kit. Protect his favorite accessory with a guy-approved iPad case, and feed his bad habits with drinking tools like a metal flask or wooden beer tote.
School him in the art of cocktail making with a stylishly covered book, or help him start his own collection with a personalized whiskey barrel. Leave him smelling fresh and sexy with a new signature scent, and help him accessorize wisely with a striped tie or colorful oxfords. Pack it all away in a new briefcase or duffel bag, and keep him warm in a cozy wool sweater or preppy gingham button down.
Top his outfit off in style with a quilted jacket or bold, velvet blazer, and complete the rest of his wardrobe with a great pair of denim and accessories like chukka boots, cuff links, a watch and some sunglasses. Help him rock out with a colorful set of headphones and entertain in style with a sleek wine cooler.
