holiday gift guide for him

This week's Friday Favorite is dedicated to the guys.  Because they need some love and attention too, right?  For the father, friend, brother, or lover, I got you covered ladies.  I offer you nine men approved gift ideas for this holiday season.  (As I'm writing this post I'm thinking that all men really want is probably more homemade meals, and for us to leave them alone while they're playing video games, but hey we got to have something to put under the Christmas tree.)  So I hope you find this gift guide helpful and merry shopping!

1. The Art of Shaving-The 4 Elements of a Perfect Shave Starter Kit (CLICK HERE)
Ehh it would suck to be a boy and have to shave everyday, but who wants to make out with sandpaper?  Do yourselves both a favor and get your love interest this handy starter kit this year.  At only $25 it's a great budget buy and the set comes with a pre-shave oil, shaving cream, after shave balm, & a shaving brush.

2. Daniel Wellington Classic Sheffield Watch (CLICK HERE)
This one's a beauty.  With a classic shape and crisp leather wristband this is a timepiece that he'll get wear out of for years.  And if you get him a watch, then he'll have no excuse for being late!  Retails for $229 with the option of buying interchangeable straps.

3. R2-D2 USB Car Charger (CLICK HERE)  
When I came across this on Pinterest I just couldn't not put it in the gift guide.  What more could a Star Wars fan ask for?  This car charger fits right in a car cupholder, features 2 USB charging ports, and even rotates, lights up, and beeps when turned on.  Retails for $39.99

4. Retro Gamer Man Crate $99.99 (CLICK HERE)
My brother told me about this website and they have the coolest gifts for guys.  They are all ship in "man crates" with laser etched crowbars and this one highlights retro gaming.  This crate includes a Retro-bit NES console, two classic Nintendo games (randomly selected) and a crap ton of candy.  Retails for $109.99

5. Polo Ralph Lauren Tedd Hi-Top Sneakers (CLICK HERE)
I love these sneakers, and for the man that needs a little fashion help this is your purchase.  You can't go wrong with Ralph Lauren and these sharp kicks feature a classic shape with a high-quality leather upper.  Retails for $88.00

6. Bacon of the Month Club (CLICK HERE) 
This "Bacon Is Meat Candy" Nitrate Free Bacon of the Month Club features nitrate and nitrite free gourmet bacon.  Each shipment contains 2 different packages (about a pound each) of gourmet bacon delivered to his door each month. What guy wouldn't love this?  $145.95 for 3 months.

7. L.L. Bean Mad Bomber Hat (CLICK HERE)
If you live anywhere where there is snow this is the perfect present for the guy you're not sure what to get.  L.L. Bean has a reputation for great quality and long lasting products, and this hat is no joke.  With a nylon outer and fully insulated with fur this hat will withstand the coldest of temperatures.  Retails for $39.95.

8. J.Crew Dock Peacoat with Thinsulate $278 (CLICK HERE)
This is a pricey investment piece at $278, but as Mindy Kailing stated in her 13 Rules for Guys.... "Buy a well-fitting coat from J.Crew, and get it cleaned once a year."  What looks better than a man in a peacoat?  This one is great quality and will keep him warm for many winters to come.  He's going to be looking dapper in this one.

9. The Ultimate Bar Book (CLICK HERE)
Many girls, including myself, have been lusting over the recent trend of gilded bar carts littered with martini glasses and varied liquor.  Well who's making the drinks?  Unless you have a past job as a bartender buy this for your man and have him brush up on his bar skills.  A tequila sunrise anyone?  Retails for $19.95

So there are my picks for the men this holiday season.  What are you getting the men in your life this year?  And how is everyone coming along with their holiday shopping?  Ahhh, I better get to my wrapping....
