For Da Man

Hello Loves!

I woke up today to SHOCK HORROR! Christmas is only 9 days away and I am yet to get the hubby a gift!! ยกAy no!

There is a reason to why I am dragging my feet with his gift. HE IS SO GOSH DARN ANNOYING TO SHOP FOR! Every year I ask him, “hey baby, what would you like for Christmas?” to which he replies “Uh nothing babe, don’t worry”. UGH! WHY?! He always asks for nothing… but gosh forbid I get him nothing. That won’t go down well! #UghMen

But then I got ta thinking, I am probably not the ONLY one in this boat. Everyone has one annoying man folk in their life, so I thought I would help you out while I shop and give you some manly gift giving ideas.


  • My man loves his socks. Socks are actually a great accessory, the bolder the better.


Cocktail Kit

  • Most men love a good drink after a long day. But why not create your own special cocktail at home!



  • It’s getting cold, so why not buy your fashionista male a lovely classic coat.



  • Books are always a perfect gift. But if you don’t know what they like to read… a gift card to his fav bookstore is also a great idea.


Wallet/Card Holder

  • Looking for something on the luxury end? A wallet or a card holder is the perfect way to do this without breaking the bank too much. Don’t forget to put money in it, otherwise it’s bad luck.



  • I think ‘smelly’s’ are the classic gift, so why not keep the tradition going.



  • For your camera loving man, get him a GoPro. It’s a win win as you will get some amazing videos and images while he is happy to take them.



  • Baby it’s cold outside. So snuggle up with this gorgeous pair of slippers I just got you!



  • For that active man in your life, why not get him a FitBit. It also doubles as a pretty rad arm candy accessory.



  • My man likes everything engraved. Engraved flasks are a lovely gift… a personal keepsake.


I hope some of these gift ideas come in use. MERRY CHRISTMAS SUGARS.

    My hubby is definitely the one person I have the hardest time shopping for out of everyone. I feel like he should be easiest because I know him so well, but it is not the case. Good ideas. Loving the fit of this sweater, and it looks great with your white jeans.

    omg yeees! I hate shopping for the men in my life. I can totally relate to “uuh I don’t want anything, don’t get me anything” so annoying! Those are great suggestions I was opting for a wallet but I had no idea I had to put money in it or else #badluck yikes!

    Such a good gift guide! And you look so chic โ€” love the chunky sweater + white jeans pairing. The unicorn is a great touch as well ๐Ÿ™‚

    I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas too.
    My boyfriend is the worst to shop for. He does not read, he does not like the clothes I buy for him and he only drinks wine. This year I ended up juts giving him some money so he could buy himself some shoes

    Best wishes for the Holiday

    I love everything about this look! It looks comfy and chic at the same time. That sweater looks so soft and cozy.
    And yes, men are so difficult to shop for. Good thing I know exactly what my boyfriend would want so I don’t even try to ask him. He would respond the same way as your husband so I don’t even try to ask him anymore. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Lol, Eddie is the SAME way! I swear, he’s definitely more difficult to shop for than me. That said, these are all such great gift ideas and though the holidays have passed, I think they’d make great gifts for birthdays and anniversaries, too! As for your outfit, I adore that cozy knit, it looks so good on you and great paired with the fresh white denim! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you’ve enjoyed the very best of the holiday season, cheers to 2017, may it be your very best yet!
