gift guide: for the men.

my husband is the best gift giver. without fail, he always amazes me by somehow remembering an item I mentioned once upon a time that I wanted or needed. it’s so thoughtful and a skill I never acquired. but I do try.

my best advice: stick with what he likes, but take it up a notch. and include some novelty items. for my husband and his newly acquired ring on his left hand ..he needs a safe place for it when it’s not on his finger pretty much while he’s asleep so it should obviously be kept on a gold stag head. or wood coasters for the man cave. bacon hot cocoa. or a desk game to keep him entertained for lulls at work.

gift guide: for the men c/o

• fun socks • collared sweater • plaid shirt • vest • gloves • cologne •

• dopp kit • jewelry stand • wood coasters • desktop skeeball • bacon hot cocoa •

happiest of tuesdays to you.

gift guide: for the host.

it’s nearly the time of year holiday parties begin to consume our nights + weekends. although, you will not hear me complaining about scrumptious cocktails, plentiful food, and amazing company. you do not want to show up empty handed. so for my first gift guide of the year, I’ve dedicated it to the host of the best party you’ll attend this holiday season. or better, to every single one of them because you don’t have a boring party on your calendar. 

gift guide: for the host c/o

• pack a metal beverage tub with your favorite holiday brews. don’t forget to include the skeleton key bottle opener.

• or a serving tray that states it’s “time to drink champagne and dance on the table” with gold stemless flutes.

• how about gifting a night of hot chocolate + gingerbread decorating?

• or make a holiday twist on the classic cheese + wine combo, with warm mulled wine in a festive mug.

happy tuesday.


gift guide: for him.

I unknowingly drop hints to [J] all year long about “what I want”. and his mind must be a steel-trap because he always remembers. it’s crazy & unfair. I don’t excel in that department. so when christmas rolls around, I struggle.

to help me and other struggling gift-givers out there, I made a gift guide. for your significant other, your dad, grandfather, father-in-law, brother, best friend, etc!
