Holiday Gift Guide: For the Fella

Holiday Gift Guide: For the Fella // by gabriellaYay it’s here! This holiday gift guide I’ve been waiting for. I’m switching up today and sharing some of my top picks for the guys this holiday season. Sure, these gifts could be for anyone, but I figured we could take a quick break from gift guides including a Holly Golightly-inspired sleeping mask and Kate Spade dresses, right?

Sure, I basically still want all of this, but these are gifts that can be fun/useful for any fella in your life. For example, a sweater you can borrow from your boyfriend, a cocktail syrup that your brother can use to make you cocktails, or a pour-over coffee maker that your dad can use to whip up a fresh pot of coffee Christmas morning.

See where I’m going with this?

Okay, they don’t actually need to share their gifts with you, but it’s not a bad perk 😉

Shop the holiday gift guide

no. 1: Schoolhouse Electric rules, let me just get that out of the way. While they’re known for their stunning light fixtures, they also offer a great mix of gifts! Like this match safe.

no. 2: I’ve had my eyes on this turntable for a while. If your fella is into music, this sleek turntable is the way to go.

no. 3: These L.L. Bean boots are the only ones you (or your guy) will ever need. It took me five years of living in Boston and suffering through our rough winters to finally invest. The kicker? They’re not even that expensive! #worthit

no. 4: A bottle caddy, of course! An adorable, affordable gift for any beer or craft soda connoisseur.

no. 5: I know T. has been asking for a wallet for a while, but it’s like finding the perfect rose gold watch – you need to wait it out until you find the one that’s just right. At least, that’s the equivalent I see. This one just might be it!

no. 6: We stopped in to check out the Rejuvenation store in Atlanta – Ponce City Market, to be exact. I fell in love with EVERYTHING, immediately. But what a perfect gift this mini accent lamp makes.

no. 7: I spotted the Trees Knees Spicy Syrup while perusing the new Boston General Store a few weeks ago and had to check it out (1) because the packaging is pristine and (2) because spicy syrup – yum!

no. 8: I’ve been using my Simplified Planner for the past year and already have my 2016 ready to go! When I heard Emily was releasing a new line for the fellas, it was obvious it would earn a spot in this year’s holiday gift guide.

no. 9: This fair isle sweater though, am I right? Doesn’t every fella need one? At least I think so. Or you could go with a classic patterned shirt because who doesn’t need #thatjcrewginghamshirt?

no. 10: Last, but not least a lovely classic pour-over coffee maker. I don’t know much about them, but I know that this one strikes my fancy. Big thanks to Mat for introducing me to Huckberry!

Are you shopping for any fellas this year? What’s on your list?

  • You did it, a fella’s guide!

    So just added that match box onto my xmas wishlist, that’s so good! Really nice selection. Did you know that the LL Bean Duck boots are so popular they can’t keep up with the demand?

    Buckets & Spades

    • I did! I’m so glad you found something you like! And those darn bean boots are so hard to get! I tried last year (obviously too late in the season….being the start of fall), but was able to get my hands on a pair this year! So worth it.
