Gift giving is one of my very favorite things. I genuinely enjoy hunting for that perfect present for somebody. (I usually get so excited when I find it that I ruin the surprise and give it to them before Christmas.) When it comes to my sisters, my mom, my girlfriends… I’m on top of it. I can always manage to find something (bangles! a scarf! a new pair of pajamas!) that I know will thrill. Boys, on the other hand, are a different story. Boys are just plain difficult to shop for – at least they are for me. I really have no idea what it is they want. I listen really carefully all year long hoping my husband will mention something (anything) that he might have a hankering for. Sometimes this works and I manage to surprise him. Other times, no luck. So, I’m usually on my own when it comes to searching for his gift, and my dad’s, too.
Working on this gift guide proved very helpful for me. It gave me some new ideas and inspired me to pick up a few more stocking stuffers (a pair of these perhaps?) for my hubby. Most of all, it introduced me to a new shop: East Dane. (It’s actually Shopbop’s little brother so you know it’s got to be good, right?) I’ve heard about it but I hadn’t managed a visit until this past weekend. It’s incredible. It’s everything that I love about Shopbop (user-friendly, a variety of designers, organized) but for men. They selection is so good. The clothing includes everything from beautifully tailored jackets (this one!) to sporty essentials like this vest. The accessories and shoes are just as good, too. My favorite section is the “Under $100″ gift guide. From books to shaving kits to tech-y stuff, they’ve managed to round up the most perfect (and affordable!) gifts for men.
I’ve may or may not have purchased my husband’s gift while putting together this little guide…but since I know he’s reading this right now, I can’t tell you what it is.
