2016 Holiday Gift Guide: For Him.

Gift guide week continues with my favorite picks for guy gifts. Most of these are things I’ve bought for Eddie in the past and some of his favorites as well.

Maison Margiela Jazz Club Cologne. I LOVE this scent. You guys might recognize this from my beauty favorites – I bought this for Eddie a few years ago and actually steal it for myself sometimes. It’s such a warm, wonderful scent. My favorite scent that Eddie wears is Burberry Touch and I also love Viktor and Rolf Spicebomb.

Harry’s Shaving Set. Eddie recently picked this up at Target and he absolutely loves it! It’s awesome that this is so affordable and you can find it right in Target.

Nike Lunar Epic Fly Knit Shoe. We love bright, neon shoes in this house and these are the exact ones we bought Eddie’s for father’s day this year. They are SO bright.

MY OTHER RECIPES

Artifact Uprising Wood Calendar. Obsessed with the size of this and how it can be personalized without looking cheesy. I almost always buy Eddie something from Artifact for one holiday out of the year.

the DJI Phantom4 Drone. Eddie’s splurge of the year was this drone and to say he is obsessed would be an understatement. We had so much fun using this on vacation and have got such great pics of Max with it too. It’s super fun and definitely a conversation starter.

Wood Dart Board. I can’t even imagine how much Eddie wishes this was in our basement. He would never leave!

Shinola The Runwell ChronoWatch. If you’re looking for a NICE (read: fancy!) watch to get someone, I love this. Eddie got this watch last year at Christmas (hello tons of gift cards) and it’s my favorite one that he owns. He’s a watch freak and loves to switch them up, but this light blue face is different and still a little timeless.

Men’s Clarisonic Fit. Love that this version is so much more compact than the original.

Patagonia Better Sweater Vest. I think every male in my family owns this vest. It’s nice enough that it can be worn in dressier situations without feeling stuffy, and it’s much more fancy than a puffer vest. Sleeker too.

KitchenAid Nespresso Medallion. This is so sleek and smooth! I love my Vertuoline coffee and espresso maker and would only change it out for this. While Eddie isn’t a coffee fan (so it’s his worst nightmare), I think it’s the best gift ever.

Beats Pill. This has made my gift guide lists for multiple years and with good reason: we use it every single day. Eddie has an older version that he takes to work and uses outside as well. I use mine in the kitchen daily and even use it to listen to podcasts.

Bose Soundsport Headphones. So much better than the Apple ear buds. And are great to run with too.

Jack Black the Balm Squadv. For stocking stuffers, I usually do a bunch of Burt’s Bees original lip balms, but love adding another version of skincare or lip balm in the gift. Jack Black is so perfect and moisturizing.

New York Times Book of Cocktails. The perfect coffee table book. Or happy hour book!

Classic Wood Scrabble Set. These types of games are also something I LOVE to give as gifts every year. I think they are nice enough to leave out almost as part of the decor but also fun to play. Recently Eddie and I even bought a newer Jenga set and have so much fun playing.

Vince Camuto Mestr Leather Duffle. Last year I bought Eddie a leather duffle from Pottery Barn to use as an overnight/carry on bag. I wanted one that was nice enough to last forever, because my dad still travels with the same leather bag he did when I was a kid. This Vince one is my pick for this year and I think it’s so gorgeous.

Go Pro Hero 4. And oldie but goodie (it’s probably been making gift guides for 5 years?), this kind of goes along with the drone. Eddie has never cared about photography or video until getting this and he has taken some of the coolest videos of things we did this summer and of Max. Love that it’s waterproof.
