Gift Guide: For the Guys

Hi everyone! I have been getting a lot of requests for my gift guides so here is the first one. I know it's a bit late but hope it helps : ) What are you gifting the guys in your life?

Of course, I'm biased but I pretty much think anything from Johnnie-O is a home run for boys and men. I even gifted the girls in my life this nifty tote bag that I designed.



johnnie-O tie - they have them for boys too!

johnnie-O Sully 1/4 Zip Pullover - they also come with his favorite MLB team logo or select school emblems. With a bunch of colors and super soft material, you really can't go wrong with this one.


johnnie-O polo - there are lots to choose from but this is one of my new favorites. It has a cotton-blend material that holds its shape and is very comfortable for on and off the golf course.



Away bags are practical and stylish. Get him his monogram so he doesn't misplace it in baggage claim.



Speaking of travel bags, I love this one from Mark and Graham, but looks like everyone else does too since it's backordered until March!



I don't know if I'll ever understand this one, but gift it and prepare for some big smiles. One of these axes from Best Made are sure to be a unique favorite under the tree.

Let's talk about shoes: AllBirds and Tods top my gifting list but I am also loving the Common Project ones below. The site where I found the Tods and Common Projects is Mr. Porter and they have one of the better gift guides for men that I've seen.

All Birds - I like this gray or the Moss color


Tods - This gray color is super versatile


Accessories are good stocking stuffers and for under the tree. Everything from wallets, to sunglasses, to a watch, are good bets.



Smathers and Branson Belt - they also have custom ones that are really cool. 

Shinola makes a great wallet. Mark and Graham also has some great ones.


I love the look of this classic Shinola watch


A scarf is a gift he won't buy himself but will love when he realizes how much warmer it makes his outfit. This one from Burberry is a forever scarf. 



Warby Parker makes great sunglasses for men and women that don't break the bank. I like this pair


Guys always need socks. Give them this fun three pack from Paul Smith. 

Electronics can be tricky because lots of guys are particular but the below are some highly requested items.


I actually bought these headphones for myself as well : ) 

My brother requested this golf gadget


And now some miscellaneous ones:

Truman's makes great men's grooming products and I love the packaging. If the guy you're gifting is in the NYC area, get him a Truman's experience haircut, shave, facial or mani/pedi. He'll feel pampered but it's in a manly setting. 


If he needs a new winter/ski jacket, try Stio.



Another thing he won't gift himself but will love? One of these sustainably made, unbelievably thick, plush and delicious cashmere blanket from Naadam. This is another one I bought for myself : )

Okay, that's all I've got for now. For more gift guides or just all around great sites for guys, try Huckberry or Sid Mashburn. Lulu Lemon is also generally a crowd pleaser.

I'm working on my gift guide for the gals and will hopefully have it up before the end of the weekend. For some reason I find it much easier shopping for guys - do you all too?
