Happy Monday friends! Today, David from Haute Ecriture is going to share with you some of the best gifts you can get men for Christmas. Over on his blog, I’m sharing great Christmas gifts you can get women! Read on for David’s Christmas gift list!
It’s barely November and Thanksgiving hasn’t even come yet but this is when you should be buying Christmas gifts because it can be difficult to find the perfect gift if you don’t get it early. Stores will be crowded and items will be sold out and you’ll be left getting a boring gift. This is especially true if you’re buying for a guy.
People usually think that buying gifts for women is more complicated because they think that women are picky but buying for men is much more difficult because there are less options. Whether your buying for a friend, your husband, or any other guy in your life, it can have you spending hours in the store wondering what to get.
As someone who loves gift giving and usually plans his gifts months ahead of time (I bought my husband diamond earrings for our first anniversary 6 months prior to the date), I’m going to help the readers of Witty ‘N’ Pretty with this guide to buying gifts for men. Let’s get started with the most common gift on the list.
I know this sounds cliché (because it is), but this can go a long way. If you get a perfume by a luxury brand like Chanel, Dior, or Dolce & Gabanna, it will stand out. The guy you’re buying for will appreciate that you got it from a brand like that instead of heading into your local Walgreens because you didn’t know what he likes. He will appreciate it even more if you get him an Eau de Parfum instead of an Eau de Toilette and explain to him what the difference is because it shows that you put some thought into it.
Speaking of not knowing what he likes, that isn’t much of a problem either. If you go here, you can see my guide to buying fragrances and that should help you out.
2. A hat
I know what you’re thinking. “A hat? How on earth is a hat a good Christmas gift? That’s so boring.” It’s a good Christmas gift if you know what kind of hat to get.
This one can be tricky because it depends on your recipient’s style but most guys these days wear fitted caps and SnapBacks. A SnapBack is a baseball cap that has the adjustable snaps on the back while a fitted cap is just that. A baseball cap that is fitted to the wearer’s head and comes in a specific size. When you buy these hats, you need to make sure that the visor is flat. It can’t be the classic baseball cap with a rounded visor. Places to get these hats include Hat Club and Lids. Lids also let’s you customize your hats so you can put his name on it. Again, that seems cliché but most guys will like it. Also, if you can’t find out his size in fitted caps, get a SnapBack.
Men love shoes just as much as women do, so getting your guy a pair of shoes from his favorite brand will make a great gift. It shouldn’t be too difficult to figure out what style he likes but you need to know exactly what shoe size he wears. Just pay attention to the style of his shoes before the holidays you should be able to get a good idea of what kind of shoes to get.
Oh, and don’t forget to get a cleaning kit with those shoes. Men love to take care of their shoes.
So, what do you think of those gift ideas? Are you going to get any of these items or do you think I should’ve listed something else? Let me know in the comments below. Also, don’t forget to subscribe to my blog at www.hauteecriture.com for posts like this and more.
