You are hard to shop for.
You don’t you start your Christmas-List Slideshow-Presentation in April like us ladies.
I feel like your mother if my present includes more than one shirt.
I just bought you a tie…but do you wear ties? Am I subliminally messaging you, telling you its time to get a real job?
I was going to get you a PS4(5?) but that contradicts my tie-message, and if I do, you’ll spend all your time playing games when we could be staring deeply into one another’s eyes…
Shaving kit? New Nikes? Fine tooth comb to help you with your newly adopted comb-over?
What do you want, man?!
Concerned Female In Your Life
Let’s not let this be us this year. No, whether you’re a girlfriend, daughter, sister, friend or dude looking to buy for another dude, let’s do this together…

There’s nothing worse than a man shivering and blue-lipped — they’re supposed to keep us warm, after all, and they certainly can’t do so in a windbreaker!
The more you spend the warmer they’ll be (sorry). This Filson one is my favorite, though ASOS Men’s Coats Section has a bunch of affordable ones.

- Does he also share an affinity for warm liquids (Shoot! Dad! You and Ally both close your eyes!)?
Tea is not the manliest drink in all the land, but for those men who enjoy a warm mug of herbally-goodness before bed or with their morning toast, why not make it a little more fun with a Deep Tea Diver Infuser?

Don’t you just hate it when ice goes and ruins your whiskey, watering it down and diluting its flavor? (blegh, no, whiskey makes me want to die). Well, a kind man and avid drinker himself, Andrew Hellman solved your problems and created these little diddlies: Whiskey Stones.
They’re soft against glass, resistant to temperature change and incapable to absorbing flavor — chill them in the freezer and your whiskey will stay
gross flavorful and potent all night long!

- Do you love him?
Daniel Wellington watches are a new obsession — they’re actually fairly affordable for the world of watches and absolutely beautiful to look at.
Classy and streamlined, just like your fair Prince.
