Watch the Watch: Great Gift Ideas for Men

“Shopping for a man is harder than solving quadratic equations in the first grade”

Hello Holidays, Hello Cool weather and Hello to the season of family, food and gift giving. FYI, today is my three year anniversary. Usually, my posts are about women’s wear, but this one features two very special guests. My two Sam’s have graciously allowed me to use them as models and I am so excited about his post. I’m talking about some great gift ideas for men this holiday season.

My husband is so hard to shop for it’s not even funny. Anytime I ask him what he wants, he always says “nothing, I’m good babe,” but I know he NEEDS a lot of things. Me on the other hand, I have my Christmas list ready by July. I knew one of my husband’s favorite items besides suits are watches. So, when Jord Watches reached out to me to give their product a try, I knew I had to get daddy Sam one. I AM SO GLAD I DID! This watch is simply amazing! Now, let’s get into some great gift ideas for men this holiday season.

Great gift ideas for men

When I shop for my husband, I try and look for things I know he’ll like or that he can use for work. The first rule of gift giving for men is to not worry about the price but worry about the gesture. I know for my husband, he doesn’t care about labels or cost of an item but he does care about an items’ usability in his everyday life. This watch is worth the price, a statement piece, conversation starter, and he can wear it every day, which he does. Every time we go out and he has it on, people stop to ask about it and I smile a little knowing I did a good job getting it for him. The wood is amazing, the detailing impeccable and the packaging it came in is beautiful. I picked this color because it’s perfect for the fall season and very rich-looking. The second rule of gift giving for that picky man is to try and personalize whatever you buy him. This watch was personalized with the date of our first born son on the inside of it. Little touches like this make this watch a MUST-HAVE and I love this company because they personalize and size it for you before they ship it out. Visit their site HERE to sign up for a special holiday discount for this amazing watch. This watch is a great gift idea for men this season.

I also bought a watch box with my husband’s initials on it so that he can have a place to keep all of his unique wooden watches. The link is up top to purchase this great box to put your new JORD watch inside. Jord watches and this watch case are both great gift ideas for men, especially for Christmas. Visit Jord Wood Watch to see more of their stunning collection.

Valentine Day is 5 days away.

For me, it’s all about the outfits. I tried and tried to get my hubby to do a post with me for Valentine Day but he wasn’t having it…LOL. He’s not about the blogging life. But, I did do a great post that I can’t wait to share with you all. I want to share some affordable and cute styles for you and your significant other for you v-day. Everything here will be wallet-friendly because you don’t have to splurge to look like a million dollars.

I hope this helps you in finding something perfect for your valentine day look. Don’t forget to try other styles like a jumpsuit or even a skirt. Whatever feels good to you and looks great on you, try it out.

Here is a look at how I would dress my husband if he would allow me to…LOL. But he has such great style already, I can’t complain. I love this monochromatic look:

Does your husband or boyfriend let you dress them for special occasions? So, would you dress him in this look? I like it because it’s so clean and crisp and would tone down the bright reds and pinks that I would definitely be wearing.

I can’t wait to hear from you all about your V-day plans and what you plan on wearing.

Don’t forget about the All-red look I did at the beginning of the month. Check it out and scroll all the way to the bottom for the links for the look: Hello February

 

I hope this helped you in some way. Keep being fashionable. Love you. Mean it!
