Gifts for Men — Holiday 2016

It’s my favorite time of the year again—gifting season! I’m kicking off gift guides with my favorite people to shop for this year—our favorite men. Maybe it’s because I get to do it so rarely, but I love shopping for men. Some people say they’re hard to buy for, I happen to think the opposite. There are so many fantastic well-designed products out there to fulfill any interest your guy (or dad or brother) might have—maybe they’re really into photography, cooking, traveling or coffee. The key is to know what makes them tick and find the absolute best accessory to help them realize their passion. And if all else fails, anything cashmere or a bottle of Terre d’Hermès will do the trick.

Ok, world peace would be great. But while we figure out how to give world peace as a Christmas present, here are some gifts that women in your life will really enjoy. Side note: I came across a list on The List App (are you on it? It’s great! Add me @savvyhome) by Hillary Kerr (@hillarykerr), co-founder of WhoWhatWear. She debunked what people actually like to receive a Christmas gifts (myself included) in the following order:

 

Inside jokes

A thoughtful reminder of a good time you shared.

Upgrades of everyday essentials

Don’t get a face wash or acne cream. But a luxe mask or bath oil? Yes!

Stalk their social

You’d be surprised how much you can find out about a woman by looking at her Pinterest feed.

Pay attention

Take notes throughout the year.

When in doubt, monogram

Always.
