gift guides   //   November 26, 2014




When it comes to holiday gifts, the boys are always the most difficult. Why? I have no idea. But I’m assuming most of you agree with this statement as I received numerous requests last week for a gift guide focused specifically on presents for men. So, here you go.

I used to only have two men to shop for – my now husband and my dad. But then I got married and inherited two more: a father-in-law and a brother, too. That means I’ve really got to sharpen my guy-gift-giving prowess. Putting together this little guide has proved very helpful in that area. I spent last weekend perusing lots (and lots!) of guy gifts. Where did I find the best stuff? East Dane, J.CrewMr. Porter, and, surprisingly, here at One Kings Lane. I also found some fun things for the stockings at Urban Outfitters. Whether it’s your boyfriend, brother, or best friend, I hope this guide helps you find the perfect present for the man in your life.

A couple of my favorites…

Something that’s always a hit with a boy? A Yeti. (Boys and their coolers…? I’m as clueless as you are.) My husband still considers this one of the best gifts he received.

As someone that loves books, they’re one of my go-to presents. Just figure out what the guy is interested in (cooking? comics? cars?) and I can assure you there’s a book out there for him. (This one is sure to be a hit with my Beatles-loving dad.)

Stocking stuffers. (Good things come in small packages, right?) I love to fill my husband’s stocking with an assortment of practical things and silly, just-for-fun gifts.

Good timing: East Dane (like Shopbop) is currently offering their Big Event promotion right now. Just enter the code GOBIG14 at checkout to receive up to 25% off your entire purchase.
