I mentioned to ya’ll that I quizzed my husband about what he thinks his favorite must have things are. Before I went and linked a whole bunch of things for you, I wanted to make sure it was a gift guide that could actually be helpful. So often I see gift guides and I think…”really who would want this stuff?” I mean maybe there are men out there that would and thats fine. But, I wanted this to fit your average guy. So here it is, my husband’s favorite things + a few things I added in for fun!
// headlamp – I got this one year for my husband and he laughed when he opened it, but he uses it all.the.time // money clip – my husband loves these style wallets, this one is great because it has the RFID blocking built right in // north face beanie – probably his favorite beanie ever. He wears his most every day // pocket knife – we actually bought our groomsmen these when we were married. My husband got himself one too, he carries it with him often // carhartt sweatshirt – just like my favorite cardigan, my husband lives in this carharrt sweatshirt // otterbox phone case – we just got new phones and you better believe he got a new otterbox case that same day! He loves this one with the clip built on // insulated work gloves – he uses these every day for work or running outside for wood. He has several pairs! // heated sweatshirt – he actually got this as a gift one year, it’s another daily staple during winter time // makita circular saw – he says every homeowner who wants to diy things needs one of these // milwaukee impact driver – he says every one needs one of these as well!
my additions to this list… // travel mug – my friend Avery from Holland Avenue recommend this travel mug. My husband doesn’t drink coffee but I’m going to get him one for soup and hot chocolate // grill set and grill glove – I do most all the cooking, but my husband is the grill master, he loves his set of utensils and I think I’m going to grab him this pair of gloves this year! // ladder toss yard game – my husband and my boys love playing this game. This looks like a great set and I’m actually going to get it for them this year // crushin’ it t-shirt – I think this t shirt is just too funny to pass up! // magnetic screw wristband – totally getting my husband this. It looks so handy!
Now for the women’s part of this guide! I tried to think really hard what my favorite things are…and a lot of my favorite things don’t really feel gift worthy…like wooden dish brushes and stretchy cotton grocery bags. But, I was able to gather some other ideas of things I love and maybe one of these will be just the item you were looking for!
For the woman who loves cozy things, kitcheny things, sweet simple things…this guide is for you
1.// Eddie Bauer Sherpa Throw – okay so this is my absolute favorite blanket. I leave it on my sofa and cuddle with it every single day. Technically I have this for women, but I ordered another because my husband always steals it from me, haha. So now we’ll each have our own 😉 It would make a great gift for the special man in your life! 2. // Blanket Scarf – favorite blanket scarf ever! 3. // Devotions from the Front Porch – Devotional – ya;ll know I share this devotional almost daily so of course it’s on this list! 4. // Kyrgies Wool Slippers – I adore my Kyrgies, this would be a great mens gift as well! 5. // Sonoma Sweater – this is on my personal wish list. I love the Sonoma brand at Kohls! I have multiple sweaters from this brand and love them! I’ve been leaving not so subtle hints for my husband to get this for me 😉 6. // Beeswax Candle Kit – one of my favorite things to do is roll candles especially in the winter. This is a great gift for someone who loves natural things and making their own crafts
7. // Rifle Paper Co. Mug – I love a good Christmas mug! If I had space for just one more, it would definitely be this one! 8. // Madewell Neck Scarf – I love Madewell neck scarves this is a beautiful multi pack!
9. // Apron – MY mom gifted me an anthro apron a couple of years ago! It’s my favorite ever!! 10. // Apple of My Eye Dish Cloth – who doesn’t love fun kitchen towels! This one is adorable! 11. // Rifle Paper co. Measuring Spoons – My spoons got dropped about a year ago and broke, I loved them so much! I’d love to get a new set!
12. // Thermal Pajama Set – I love Target for thermal pjs, this print is perfect for the holiday season! 13. // Cozy Wool Socks – wool socks all day every day!! 14. // Cardigan – my favorite cardigan. I call it my house coat, and wear it almost daily! 15. // Universal Thread Tote – I am in desperate need of a new tote purse! I’ve had one similar to this one and love it 16. // more expensive option – genuine leather Madewell Tote – If I was looking for one that would last for a long time I’d definitely invest in this one! 17. // Silicone face scrubber 18. // Knitted Beret
Just a few more favorite things! I get asked about my bolga baskets all the time, I’ve purchased from Lil Bellies before and also Amazon. Here’s a link to those. Amazon // Lil Bellies . Another fave item is our Gathre Mat …so many uses! I actually just saw they have table runner now and I totally want one!
Well folks that’s all I have for you right now! Thanks so much for stopping by, I’m hoping I can put together a children’s gift guide/favorite things this week for you!
