Holiday Gift Guide 2015: For Him

‘Tis the season of giving! Now…what to give? I like to give gifts that people will love and actually put to good use. If you aren’t quite sure what to buy your dad, boyfriend, brother, etc – below are some great items in which you really can’t go wrong.


  1. Barbour Leather Wash Bag
  2. JCrew Flannel Pajama Pants
  3. Patagonia Cotton Quilt Snap Pullover
  4. Leather Catchall (with personalized monogram is really nice)
  5. Monogrammed Leather Slimfold Wallet
  6. Ugg Waterproof Snowboots (After last winter, these are a more than a gift…they are a blessing.)
  7. Badass Swiss Army Knife
  8. Dusty Coal Plaid Shirt
  9. Swiss Packback with laptop sleeve (Perfect for work and travel)
  10. Mens Skincare Kit
  11. Beard and Mustache Wax 
  12. The Martian (I’ve heard multiple people say the book is amazing. Chris is currently reading it!)
  13. Ridley’s Chess Set (Way cooler than a video game! Play chess boys.)

Again, we mentioned this in our last post, but do not feel as though you MUST spend a certain amount on each and every person on your holiday list. There are so many options outside of a physical present. For instance, choosing a shared experience (my papa loves going out to lunch together – I know he prefers spending time together over a gift) or making something yourself (last year I designed new business cards for my dad.) Liz wrote a great piece on saving money this holiday season (read here), which has some great alternatives to expensive presents.
