The hardest people for me to shop for when it comes to gifts are most certainly guys. When asked what they would like I don't feel like they have much to say which only makes the process that much harder. I also feel like they get the short end of the stick because of that since then they end up with practical things like clothes and socks.
While I don't have that much experience shopping for guys I have been semi successful in the past with the gifts I've given my dad and brother. When I asked my brother what he wanted for Christmas I was a little bit stunned when his response was a sweater and some cool winter socks. He usually goes silent when we ask and would never in a million years be someone who would ask me for clothes. Since he was feeling talkative I enlisted his help and the help of a couple of guy friends to tell me what guys actually want for Christmas. I think this guide came together quite nicely and should work for many of those tough to shop for guys on your list whether that be your dad, brother, or even your boyfriend. Here is what we came up with:
yeti rambler // laptop case // speaker // pajama pants // s'well bottle // noise canceling headphones // baseball hat // calendar // cocktail kit // true grit pullover // leather catch all // desk marker // key fob // stadium print // desert boots // luggage // watch // fitbit // sweater // patagonia pullover // camp socks // dino socks // drone // food & beer book // wooden phone case (over half off) // cards against humanity
Another great resource when it comes to shopping for gifts that I was introduced to last night is Bespoke Post. This is a great place to shop for a variety of different items or even make it easy on yourself by ordering a guy on your list one of their pre-curated boxes. These boxes are geared towards different types of recipients and I was shocked that I hadn't heard of this site sooner!
I'd love to hear any other ideas you may have for when it comes to shopping for guys!
