One of the most asked for gift guides was one for the guys! I asked T to help me put together a gift guide for the “everyguy” and he came up with quite a few different ideas of the best gifts for guys.

Gifts for guys
Bluetooth headphones for the gym and gym gear if he works out (these workout shirts are great and come in a ton of different colors). If he travels a lot and loves music, you could also get him a waterproof speaker – great to take to the pool, on the boat, or just have in the house. This one (from Bose) links to your phone so you can take calls directly through it on speakerphone, or you can hook it up to other speakers in your house!
Shoes – T doesn’t normally buy himself shoes, but when we go shopping he will occasionally try some on. I always tell him to get more than one pair when he does! That way he can alternate his nicer shoes for work rather than just having one go-to pair. His absolute favorites are this pair from Hush Puppies that he was gifted when I did a collaboration with them last year (he seriously wears them at least every other day), and this pair from Cole Haan.
Luggage – A couple of years ago T received a monogrammed duffel bag as a groomsman’s gift. He uses it constantly for weekends away – it’s the perfect size! He also recommends a small carry on suitcase for someone who travels a lot. (I bought him this one.)
T wears a Fitbit everyday, so he recently upgraded his band to a leather one. This makes it look more like a classic watch than a tech accessory.
For the guy who likes cool new gadgets or likes to cook – a SousVide. If you’ve never heard of this (I hadn’t until one showed up at our door!), it’s a way of cooking meats in a water bath at a certain temperature. It’s really hard to undercook or overcook your meat this way. And if he likes wine, check out the Coravin. This gadget lets you pour from a bottle of wine without opening the whole bottle (so you can save it if you aren’t going to drink the entire bottle at once).
Coffee of the month/beer of the month depending on what he drinks – the gift that keeps on giving!
