Gift Guide / For Him

December 17, 2014

men's gift guide

Why are men perpetually difficult to buy for?  Every year I’m challenged when it comes to gifts for the men in my life and usually end up asking (and hoping!) if they created an Amazon wish list to bail me out.  So I scoured some of my favorite online stores (and Pinterest) and came up with a ‘For Him’ list that I think encompasses a variety of men’s tastes.For the athletic guy, this hoodie will keep him warm and can easily transition from a hike to brunch.

For the guy who loves toiletries, this lotion and this white wood candle are perfect.

Does he like the understated urban look?  This tee and these sneakers are my favorites.

And for the guy who loves just one really great stylish piece, you can’t go wrong with this watch.  It’s truly timeless.

Kids Gifts

Gap Mittens  /  Moncler Down Vest  /  Madeline Book  /  Land of Nod Teepee
Aden Anais Blanket  /  Jellycat Bunny  / Old  Navy Graphic Tights  /  Freshly Picked Moccasins
Gap Animal Sweater  /  The Animal Print Shop Bear Cub Print  /  New Balance Sneakers

My niece and nephew are by far my favorite people to shop for during the holiday season. From clothes to toys, everything is just fun when it comes to picking out gifts for the littles, am I right?! I rounded up my favorite places to shop as well as some picks from each one. Are you still aww-ing over those tiny moccasins? I know, too much cuteness!

Gap: They make great hoodies, sweaters, and accessories for the little ones as well as the bigs. This cat sweater would be perfect with tiny leggings and this fair isle sweater coat has me wishing it came in my size.

The Animal Print Shop: I bought three of the ‘little darling’ prints for my nephew’s room when he was just a baby and they still work perfectly three years later. These precious prints are gifts any parent would love!

Peek: The cutest graphic tees and hoodies can be found at Peek. They also carry a small, but excellent selection of books (one of my childhood favorites!) and toys.

The Land of Nod: My nephew would be sorely disappointed if he received bedding for Christmas, but I know a lot of mothers would go crazy over this fair isle sheet set. The Land of Nod has the most adorable selection of kid’s bedding and room decor.

Old Navy: I have my eye on a few items for my niece at Old Navy. From little jackets to sweet graphic tights, their prices can’t be beat!

J.Crew Crew Cuts: Honestly, their ‘In Good Company’ section is filled with some of thee best companies. From Aden Anais to Easy Peasy (omg!), there’s a wide variety of clothes and accessories to choose from for both babies and kids.

Freshly Picked: Talk about cute footwear! These gold limited edition moccasins are perfect for the fashion forward toddler.

Nordstrom: A great one-stop shop and for good reason. Their clothing and accessories and selection of toys are top notch.

Camouflage, Leopard, and Stripes

Clare Vivier Clutch  /  Ray-Ban Sunglasses

These heels have been idling on my shoe rack far too long so, I thought I’d give them a little love.  All of the pieces in this look are fairly basic, but paired together, they make for a striking contrast in prints.  This coat was a steal for around $25! Even thought it’s no longer available online, I have seen it in several Old Navy stores.  And even though it’s not the warmest jacket for this time of year, it’s a great one to break out in the Spring!
