Hi sweet friends and happy Monday! Christmas is exactly two weeks from today – how crazy! Which means it’s time to get ’bout it ’bout it on the gift buying front! This may surprise you, but shopping for my dad & Tony is the most fun for me. Yes, I love picking out girly gifts for my mom and sis (and for myself haha), but buying things for my sweet dad and hubby just fill my heart! My dad is the hardest working, most selfless person I know and has always sacrificed his wants and needs for those of his wife and daughters. I’ve never taken that for granted but as I’ve gotten older, I definitely appreciate those sacrifices more and more, which is why I truly love spoiling my dad! Because what’s the point of having a little jingle in your pocket if you don’t share it with the ones you love! I also love shopping for Tony because he, too, puts others’ wants before his own. And they both will put off buying those necessary items, such as cologne, belts, scarves & gloves. Seriously, Tony has a hole in his left glove and they both have empty bottles of cologne, so it’s time to stock them up on those functional things that every great guy needs!
But as much as I love shopping & giving gifts, fighting the crowds is my least favorite thing to do. There’s nothing worse than sitting in parking lot traffic and waiting in a massive line for one single item, which then you have to repeat store after store. No thanks! This year I did all of my shopping at one convenient place, Village Pointe. They have a store for every single person on my list! I would much rather walk from place to place in the festive & darling decorated outdoor mall than have to drive from store to store and worry about the parking situation! And the best part, when all your shopping is done, you can treat yourself to a bite to eat and beverage of your choice at one of their fabulous restaurants. Our go-to spot is Kona Grill – they have the best happy hour bites & drinks!
This. Cologne. Smells. SO. GOOD!! I’m pretty picky when it comes to what scent Tony wears, so I definitely take the lead in choosing his cologne, and this one has moved to the top of my list. You must smell it for yourself but in the meantime, let the description pull you in…
Inspired by mavericks, rebels and all-American dreamers, Coach For Men symbolizes the spirit of the brand. Complex and masculine, it opens with energetic notes of citrus and pear, which gives way to a warm burst of cardamom and coriander, before drying down to an earthy base of vetiver with hints of suede and ambergris.
Also, the leather tag can be embossed (for free!), giving this beautiful scent & bottle a sweet personal touch!
Function meets Fashion with this black and brown reversible belt! My dad is a loyal belt wearer, so I knew I had to get this for him when I spotted it at the Lucky store. Belts are one of those items that guys don’t replace right away because buying a necessity isn’t nearly as much fun as buying a chrome part for his motorcycle haha!
PLAID SCARF & GLOVES FROM BANANA REPUBLIC
You know how shoes make a woman’s outfit, well a classic scarf & high quality leather gloves make a man’s winter wardrobe! I love buying timeless pieces that they can wear year after year. Who says functional pieces have to be boring, right?!
Help the favorite men in your life take care of their skin this Winter season with a luxurious shave set! We as women spend bundles on our own skin care products and we loathe having to shave our legs (hello, laser hair removal, I’m coming for ya), so could you image what it’s like to have to shave your face every day? That’s a lot of razor-to-face time, so we need to encourage them to take care of their skin! This shave set will help hydrate & smooth their skin, and not to mention it smells great, and that’s a gift that keeps on giving!
