Gift Ideas for Men

I have such a hard time buying gifts for J. His birthday is in December so with that, and Christmas, it's like all of a sudden I need to come up with multiple gift ideas. And seeing as it's the end of November, well, I'm behind schedule.

With Black Friday/Cyber Monday coming up (aka: the biggest shopping weekend of the year) I thought it would be the perfect time for a gift guide. And maybe I'm not the only one who finds shopping for guys difficult.

I searched Etsy for gifts for men and picked out a few handmade items that look like quality picks for your husband, dad, boyfriend, or brother. Here were my favs:
1. Personalized Shaving Mug, by MiriHardyPottery
2. Bourbon barrel, by themanregistry
3. Circuit board cuff links, by Sparkover
5. Beer Soap, by GingerGreySoaps
6. Beard Oil, by Beard Oil

Ah, Etsy shopping, you never disappoint. Will you be doing your shopping on Etsy next weekend? I plan too! And I also plan to have a damn big sale to keep an eye out for that! ;] xo JA

  1. Great list. Part of my husband's groomsmen gift was beer soap. It made the entire bag of goodies smell good. Also ... handmade soap is the bomb. Love that bourbon barrel, too.

  4. Most of the time, I can't relate to the gifts guides for men. My boyfriend is ummm...well, let's just say he has unique preferences. He also has a massive beard, and I never considered getting him something special for it, until I saw this. JA for the win!! My boo is gettin' beard oil. x

  7. Wonderful collection of gifts! I'm going to check out the beard oil and shaving mug. Those look great! Thanks for including our homemade shea butter and beer soaps. My husband loves the scent of the Guinness soap. I like the Killian's scent the best. Smells edible! I tell him he looks like an addict, always picking up his Guinness soap and smelling it. He can't get enough of that scent. Ha ha!

  8. Oh my, I love that wallet idea. My honey never empties his wallet. It's so thick it's ridiculous. And the constantly misplacing his phone? A never ending battle. I am thinking two birds, one stone!
