What gifts are you getting for the men in your life this year?
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.
We ladies are not the easiest to buy for—which is why I highly recommend treating yo’self this Valentine’s Day in order to actually get what you want. But if you’re the type to drop hints to your guy on what you might want to receive, here are a few suggestions. These would all be at the top of my list. What’s at the top of yours?
What are you getting you guy for Valentine’s Day this year?
I love shopping for guys. Their stuff is just so cool and different. Here are a few ideas that I think would make fantastic Valentine’s Day gifts for your man. What about you, what are you getting your guy for Valentine’s Day this year?
If you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat (@savvyhome), you probably already know the big news: in a few short weeks, I’ll be moving to New York City!! I can’t believe I’m finally typing these words—it’s been a long time coming (my friends can attest). I’ve been hinting at the big news for a while now, and it was hard to keep it for myself for so long!
You might have noticed a lot of back and forth in the last couple of years, as I started making more friends down there and the weekend trips became more frequent. So when I got my position as Home Décor Editor at MyDomaine, and they asked me which office I would rather work from: New York or Los Angeles, the choice was clear! They were also happy with the choice since most of the editorial team is in LA, so I’ll get to cover most NYC-based design events, which I’m super excited about.
I’m obviously very sad to be leaving my city, my friends, and my family. In the same token, I’m relieved that I’m only a short 6-hour drive, or 50-minute flight away. It means I can easily come back for just for the weekend, and my friends and family can easily come visit too. It’s a refreshing change from being a 30-hour flight away, like when I lived in Australia. I’m nervous about some aspects of big city living: not having a car, the crazy rent prices… But most of all, I’m so excited about what’s to come—the adventures, the opportunities, the lifestyle. Bring it New York, I’m ready!
