Holiday Gift Guide for the Men

Call me a bad wife, or call me brilliant, but for the past four Christmases I have been quick to jump on the “no-couples-gifts” bandwagon… a.k.a. Eric and I have never given Christmas gifts to one another. However, this year I told him I would like to do a small gift swap– baby steps, people! Only time can tell if our plans will follow through. Either way, I have been scanning the Internet for some inspiration, and really enjoyed some ideas over at the Old Faithful Shop.

  1. Sewing Kit
  2. Canadian Wool Blanket
  3. Sling Shot
  4. Soldered Terrarium 
  5. How To Be A Man Book
  6. Screwdriver
  7. Backpack

If any of you are curious about the sewing kit, Eric has a small kit with needles and mini scissors that he kept with him while living in India. He still has it, and he still whips it out for random fixes. I really like the manly aesthetic the sewing kit above has.

Oh, and how about the “How To Be A Man” book? Totally awesome. It’s a lifelong process for them… only kidding!

    Gwen - It makes me sad that things like these are promoted as “for men” when in reality they’re interesting gifts that anyone could love.

    I love things like this, but I guess I’ll have to see if they have it in pink high heel shoe patterns and have a makeup kit instead of the slingshot. Teehee.

    keighley - Gwen I completely agree with you! I should have added a (and women) in the title… I’m definitely a girl that would enjoy a good slingshot or carving knife as well as a tube of lip gloss.

    I just wanted to point out some fun items men might enjoy for readers that were stuck figuring out what to buy. XO
