Men are notoriously difficult to shop for. You either have those that are much too picky or purchase everything they want themselves. There seems to be no happy medium! So, my strategy for buying for the men in my life (if they don’t provide a list) is to buy things that I like for them. I don’t go too crazy (aka buying my dad a scarf because he would never wear a scarf in a bajillion years), but I do insert a bit of my personal taste into my gift giving.
Above are a few things that have caught my eye while browsing for Christmas. I particularly love these glasses from Riedel and the S’well water bottle. I like that the glasses are defined as “for the bar” and purportedly can be used with anything from beer to water. Multi-use glasses are always cool, especially for some one who has a small living space. As for the S’well, I know $45 is a little expensive for a water bottle, but this puppy is a game changer. It keeps beverages hot for 12 hours and cold for 24. Perfect for when I’m planning to go to the gym after work, but pack before I leave in the morning. The ice is still there in the afternoon! Perfect for those on-the-go men in your life!
As for what not to buy, unless it is super specified, I NEVER purchase electronics. This would be where the too picky would come in. If they want something battery operated or that plugs into a wall for Christmas, but didn’t specify, gift card is the way to go, my friends.
Whats on your shopping list for the men? Let me know!
