Finding that perfect gift for your man can be a toughie, am I right?
A few years ago (when Tom and I were just dating) he gave me a title that was oh-so-sweet yet incredibly daunting to continue to live up to again and again…
He said that I had earned the title: “Best Gift Giver”
After giving myself a pat on the back, I realized that this would make every single birthday, anniversary, and Christmas wayyy underwhelming if I didn’t live up to my gift giving precedent. I had upped the stakes and there was no going back. 🙂
Side Note: Gift giving is one of my favorite things of all time. I find picking out that perfect “something” for a friend or a family member so much fun. I absolutely love every second of the gift search for the hubs. But it can still be tricky to think of something fresh and unique time and time again!
Anywho, here’s a list of few things I’ve gotten Tom throughout the years that he has loved and continues to use on the daily! Hopefully this list gives you an idea (or 2!) for Father’s Day (it’s nearly here!) OR your upcoming anniversary (our 4 year anniversary is this Thursday!!) OR just a special surprise gift for no reason at all (those are always the best, no?!)
Tom wears a suit and tie to work 5 days a week so new ties are always a sure bet! Kathrine Zeren ties are sustainably produced and American made. This Navy Stripe in the photo is Tom’s favorite!
He puts this under his desk at home and uses it daily. I’ve even given it a spin myself (as a matter of fact, maybe I should go break it out right now while I’m writing!)
It’s definitely too late to order a custom piece of art in time for Father’s Day, but why not get a jumpstart on Christmas?!! It’s never too early! Paintings by Genie created the most amazing painting featuring our dog Rocky 3 years ago, and I gifted it to Tom on Christmas. It was probably the best gift I’ve ever given, EVER. He smiles every time he sees it. 🙂
I just got Tom these seriously luxe sheets for his Birthday in May! He’s a sucker for a comfy bed, so this was a home run.
A good pair of driver shoes or loafers! Tom’s favorite brand is Donald J. Pliner. He says they’re the comfiest shoes he owns.
6. Amazon Alexa.
She’s pretty darn fabulous! We turn on Alexa’s rain sounds every night when we go to bed, and Tom frequently asks her for a daily news update or deets on the weather. She’s also essentially your very own DJ if you integrate Amazon Music. She’ll play anything and everything you request or she’ll tailor a playlist to your liking!
7. Tumi Bag
As you can see in the photos below, Tom carries his Tumi Bag to work on the daily. It’s a classic, high-quality leather staple. And, guess what? I purchased it for him before we got married! So that means it’s been going strong for over 4 years! Clearly it’s worth the moolah. The quality can’t be beat.
Thank you so much for stopping by, friends! I hope this gave you a little gift inspo for the man in your life. Have the happiest day, and subscribe HERE to receive my next post in your inbox! I’ll be styling my favorite little red dress that’s casual enough for everyday wear! You don’t want to miss it. 🙂
