Gifts for Him!


The hardest people to shop for on my list always happen to be the men in my life.  So, I've rounded up some past successes and some new items I'm thinking about in case any of you happen to have the same shopping-woes as I do!

For the music lover looking for something new to start collecting - take it back to classic records with a record player.

Your favorite Stranger Things will love this Hawkins Middle School Tigers Tee (a la Dustin... grrrr).

Men deserve their very own skin care line for them, and I love Bulldog's Face wash, scrub and moisturizer for their natural ingredients, the options and the manly feel of it all. 

Upgrade your casual, fleece wearing beau into this classic Better Sweater Zip Front jacket (with fleece lined interior).

For your handyman, this Universal Angularizer Ruler will get him out of any space and work with any project.

I got this couch cup holder (that literally fits any/all cups!!) for my husband and brother-in-law last year on a whim, and pretty sure it's the one thing they both absolutely love and still use/talk about today. (Also avail on Amazon.)

Class up his bar set and liquor collection with this personalized decanter and cup set.

This was a past hit in my house - and a definitely splurge, but the Bose QuietComfort wireless headphones are legit amazing and great for that music lover/traveler in your life.

These versatile slippers with removable soles are great for indoor & outdoor, plus comfortable and well made. I have them myself, and they'd make a great gift for the dude going in/out often!

{This personalized travel bag is also a hit with my husband. He uses it all the time - not just when he travels. You can see it in our trip to Iceland here.}

Top 10 Fashions to Get from Target, RIGHT NOW!

Target is on fire right now. I'm so impressed with their new lines (like A New Day and Cat & Jack)  and collaborations, and the options and quality of it all.  But there is a lot of good stuff right now - especially online (where there is like 1000x more),  so I'm boiling down to my favorite 10 things from the clothing/fashion department that you have to get from Target right now (before it's sold out!).  A few things down here for your kiddos, too!

The coziest, softest, dreamiest cardigan of the season. You will want to live in this (and you just might)!
Ok, another cardigan (I mean, they are important this time of year), but in a really great color and also, very cozy!

Can't forget about the kids - these velvet pieces are oh-so-sweet. Loving the crushed yellow velvet skirt and burgundy velvet blazer for all those holiday dress up needs.

For all those upcoming holiday parties... I have some Sam Edelman shoes that look very similar as these black block strap heels that can be tied in front or around ankle.

This long silky robe-like jacket would make a very cool layer over any outfit almost all year around (adding this to my cart now...).

And on the jacket kick, this suede Moto jacket looks high end and right on trend.

Nora picked out this jacket, and I love it!  The sporty style, with bold colors and warm texture is perfect for her this winter.

I feel cheery for the holidays in this nice fitting sweater with cuff detail (comes in a bunch of other colors, too).

I'm just hope Nora will love these sneakers as much as me. Fuzzy and sparkly sneakers are oh-so cute!

First Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts for Everyone!

unique gifts for friends and kids 

Every year I swear I'm going to get an early start to holiday gift shopping, so that I can put more thought into the gifts, and have more fun gift wrapping and decorating the packages.  I don't totally fail at this goal each year, as it seems I get a little more ahead of the game each year - and this year, this year is my year to rock it!  

To help me (and hopefully you!) and as I always do each year, I'll be sharing gift guides here on the blog.  This helps me get inspired for my own shopping lists and challenges me to find more unique and thoughtful gifts. Plus, I LOVE shopping other's gift guides.

This first gift guide is in partnership with Uncommon Goods, which is one of my favorite sites to shop gifts for everyone on your holiday list!  They have unique products and special pieces that make gifts that much better.  And even better than that, they make sustainability part of every decision they make in an effort to create an environmentally friendly, socially responsible and an ever-more rewarding place to work.  A lot of their products are handmade, organic or recycled - so you can feel even better about your purchase.

I especially love the gift options for all your girlfriends on your list. There is literally something for every type of friend you have - from meaningful jewelry, coffee lover, women's right activist, avid book reader, flower lover, etc!

Their toys, crafts, books, and room decor for kids might be some of my absolute favorite gifts! I'm already filled with ideas for my own kiddos (doing Santa's work for him, I guess).

Any of these ideas from Uncommon Goods resonate with you?  

This post in partnership with Uncommon Goods, but all opinions and picks are my own.
