Holiday Gift Guide: For Him

Gift Guide for Him

Today's post is the first of several "holiday gift guides" that will be featured on the blog over the next week or so. As we gear up for Black Friday sales and Cyber Monday, it's good to go ahead and get an idea of what's out there... to be thinking about the types of gifts you're going to give this holiday season. Today is all about gifts for him. Whether that is your father, brother, husband or best friend, you'll find a little bit of everything in this gift guide.

When it comes to finding the perfect gift for him, there is never one perfect option. For me, finding the right gift for my father or brother (still working on the beau part), is about practicality. Things they'll really use and items that'll stay in trend for years to come. So for this year's gift guide for him I decided to feature just that. Everything from brand name companies, to homegrown startups.

To highlight two companies featured above, Bull & Moose // Stubble and 'Stache, both are DC based companies who donate part of their proceeds to organizations that support our troops and veterans. If you're an avid follower of the blog, you know how much I LOVE businesses that give back. Pick up a velvet bow tie for your beau's New Years attire (proudly sponsors Got Your Six) or purchase a beard care kit from Stubble and 'Stache for your father (a portion of sales goes to help our wounded warriors).

Some of my other favorite gifts for him are sunglasses, practical items like collar stays or cufflinks, and watches. Does your man have a problem with arriving to that date on time? Or is your brother always the last to show up to a family function? Shinola, based out of Detroit, offers genuine leather watches that are def on trend. Not sure what your "him's" style is? Than a great subscription service is the Trunk Club. Think Stitch Fix, but for men. A personal stylist hand chooses items for him, sending them straight to his home to try on. No shopping, no stores, free shipping. If your him is more of a traveler, the perfect "manly" tote bag can be found in Waiting on Martha's shop. For an added Southern touch, get the thing monogrammed. 

Looking for some great gifts on the cheaper side? You can still get them some great staple items like button downs, house slippers or colorful socks from Nice Laundry (George H.W. Bush would be proud). All of the items featured in this year's Gift Guide for Him are perfect for any type of man, at every age. 

P.S. -- Want to win some extra cash just in time for the holiday shopping frenzy next week? Then don't forget to enter the Black Friday Giveaway going on (ends 11/25). You could even put the $50 towards one of the items featured in today's post, just saying.
