Holiday Gift Guide: The Boyfriend Edit

When it comes to Holiday shopping, I always find it’s hardest to shop for my boyfriend. And pretty much all the guys in my life. My boyfriend, brother and dad can all be tricky to find the perfect gift for.

Here are the gifts that I think would be great for the man in your life.

 

JORD Meridian Watch in Nightfall

JORDWatchFLatlay

Austin is literally the toughest when it comes to watches. He has one watch. For the last five years, he has told me to NEVER buy a watch for him without him there. And then I found this one from JORD. As I promised, I showed it to him and he instantly fell in love. The band is made out of wood, but since it’s in such a dark color, it’s only faintly noticeable. It just adds a little extra piece of interest to the watch.

What really made Austin fall in love was the dual wheel movement. As Austin has so lovingly told me, for automatic watch enthusiasts, a dual wheel is a must. Because the movement is mechanical it requires no battery. The best part is that the dual wheels are completely visible, which makes it aesthetically pleasing. Austin will literally sit and stare at the exposed wheels all day long. We went to a wedding last weekend, and he proceeded to show everyone and tell them how amazing his new watch was.

Extra Note: if you’re looking at picking up this watch or any others from JORD, I would suggest filling this out to get 25% off your order instantly.

 

Topman Side Ribbed Slim Fit Sweater

TopMan

If your guy is anything like mine, then he probably refuses to buy nice clothes for himself, especially anything nice. I always like to try to find one nice piece of clothing to give him for the Holidays that I think is something he’d actually enjoy but would never pick out for himself

I really love this one from TopMan because it wasn’t terribly expensive, but it’s very nice quality. This specific sweater has ribbed panels on either side and inner arms. Casual enough to wear with jeans, it can also be dressed up with a pair of slacks.

 

Commodity Style Guide

CommodityStyleGuide

This is one of my favorite gifts, mainly because it’s unisex which means I can enjoy it too! Commodity has some of my favorite scents. My all time favorite is Gold. While that is unlikely to be Austin’s favorite, this Style Guide gives him the chance to test out different fragrances and find his perfect match.

 

Art of Shaving Sandalwood Shaving Cream

ArtOfShaving

One of the most luxe shaving creams around, this is something I rarely find that men splurge on for themselves. The Sandalwood Shaving Cream generates a rich and foamy lather that helps protect the skin from irritation by improving the razors ability to glide across the skin. It softens the beard for a close and comfortable shave. The formula contains glycerin and coconut acid that provide hydration during the shave. A luxe shaving cream is something so small, but I think it really elevates your daily routine.

 

Apple AirPods

Airpods2

Austin specifically asked me to include this in my gift guides as he is madly in love with them. What is it with guys and headphones anyway? My favorite thing about them is the technology behind them.

AirPods can sense when they’re in your ears and pause when you take them out so you never miss your favorite part of a song. They hold up to 5 hours of listening time on a single charge. And since the case can actually hold multiple additional charges, you can get more than 24 hours of listening time before every having to plug the case back in. 15 minutes in the case gives you 3 additional hours of listening time.

 

Native Union Night Cable Marble Edition

NativeUnion

This has to be one of the fanciest chargers I have ever seen. Absolutely beautiful, it is not only gorgeous to look at, it’s also incredibly functional. This comes in both a white as well as black marble base to fit your aesthetic. Since the marble is naturally heavy, it works as the perfect base to keep your charger on the table instead of dropping to the floor. With a 10-foot charging cord, there is no need to worry that a plug may be too far away. The weighted ball attached to the cord helps hold the cable where you place it. Because the cable is made with a braided nylon, it reduces the likelihood of the typical wear and tear of most cables.

Want just the charging cord? There offer just the Night Cable here.

 

May Lindstrom Problem Solver

Problem Solver

If you were to give your man one skincare item this winter, I would suggest the May Lindstrom Problem Solver Mask. As the name would suggest, this mask works to combat a variety of issues, from breakouts to irritation. If your man is anything like mine, giving him a pre-mixed mask is a waste of time. He’ll never finish it before it expires. Which is where a powder mask comes in handy. And if he’s only going to use one mask, a max of once a week, then it needs to be a powerhouse.

This intense correcting mask effectively purifies and tightens pores, extinguishing inflammation, fighting blemishes, jump-starting circulation and detoxifying skin with delightful ease and power. A jet-black fusion of antioxidant-rich raw cacao, healing bamboo charcoal, soil nutrients, salts, and exotic warming spices go deep on a mission to reveal your most radiant self.

If your guy is into skincare, I have a skincare gift guide going live soon with more things he may love!
