Holiday Gift Guide for Men

Thursday, November 13, 2014

If there's one thing I've learned about men, it's that they never need anything.  Not in the same way that women do.  Women need a Marc Jacobs bag the same way they need shampoo.  Men are the complete opposite, they need useful things like toothpaste and new sneakers because theirs have holes in them or the sole is gone.  And the tricky thing about men is that when they need something, they go out and get it.  I mean, like, immediately.  This makes them difficult people to buy gifts for.  For the most part, I've found that men like to receive gifts that are useful and functional.  Things that have a purpose.  Recently for a friends birthday, we bought him tons of socks.  I know it sounds weird, but you know what?  He LOVED them.  They were fun, and something he can use every day.  The trick is to get them things they need, but don't know they need them.  I know, it sounds crazy, but look, I did it for you.  For even more gift ideas check out my pinterest board here, and if you're looking for gift ideas for the ladies, check out this gift guide here.
