Gift Guide #3: What He Really Wants

Every year at this time, I see a million gift guides for the guys, and I always end up thinking, “Josh would never use that. No guy wants that.” Last week, I even saw a stationery set on a guys’ gift guide. Have you ever met a guy who was like, “Wow, all I really want is a great stationery set, for all of those letters I write”? No, you haven’t. So, I had Josh help me put together a gift guide of things he wants for Christmas this year.

As he was putting the guide together, I just kept thinking, “All of these things are so practical”. So, when picking out a gift for your guy, think of what he’ll actually use. Here are some ideas from Josh:

What to Wear: Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving, all! I’m spending the day cooking with the men in my life — my dad and Josh — and watching some football (Go Hawks?!). This year for Thanksgiving, I chose these dark plum velvet pants that I recently picked up in Portland. They’re the perfect shade for fall and they feel like pajamas! I hope all of you have a great holiday full of food, drinks and laughter.

Gift Guide #2: What She Really Wants

Every year, my family asks me to put together my list of what I want for Christmas months in advance. Think I’m kidding? I gave my list to my mom in late September. In a family where everything is planned and prepared, I have a lot of time to think about what I want. For me, the holidays are all about luxury, and gift giving should be about giving people things that will make them happy and are so special, they wouldn’t normally buy them for themselves — but that doesn’t always have to mean expensive! Here are some gifts I’d love to find under the Christmas tree:
