2017 Holiday Gift Guide: For Him

Shopping for guys is terribly difficult, at least in my opinion. It seems like my brother and father have everything in the world they could possibly need and want! You'd think it would be easier because guys are fairly simple, but this simplicity actually makes things harder. In the past, I have consulted guy friends to see what would be on their "ideal Christmas list," but this year, I did things differently. I played the "if I were a boy" game and made the list based on what I would want if I were a guy. I thought about all of the things that I loved and then found different versions of them that I could definitely see my brother or dad loving.

For example, I borrowed my roommate's Patagonia rolling duffel a few months ago and fell in love with it. I think the red version is super cool, and even the most clueless guy would have trouble losing such bright colored luggage. I am all for wallet phone cases, and I love the version above. It's something I would probably even buy for myself! Another cool item is the water-resistant Bose speaker. I have been wanting a good speaker for so long, and I am sure I will cave soon enough and get one. This one would be amazing for tailgates or long days at the beach when it warms back up.


Update: I went back and asked two of my guy friends to send me 10 products that they would ideally love to receive for Christmas. I thought this would help you all see a wide range of ideas–– both friends have different styles, so hopefully you guys will get more ideas from this. Here are John and Alex's lists!
