If you're struggling to come up with new ideas for this Christmas season, I got your back! Here are a few out-of-the-box gift ideas for everyone on your list:
Whether it's your husband, boyfriend, dad or brother, these are sure to put a smile on his face:
A new jacket (leather is always nice)
Boots or sneakers
Gloves and a hat (bonus points if they're gloves for riding in the cooler weather)
T-shirt/flannel (His favorite coffee company has a few great ones ;)
Manscaping kit or toiletry bag
Tools! (pay attention for those he doesn't already have)
Personalized gift (like a mug, thermos, whiskey or beer glass) I know a great engraver with super fast turnaround times!
A new wallet
Jewelry (this is making a comeback for guys y'all)
Techie stuff (drones, tablets, laptop, GoPro, bluetooth speaker, Tile, AirPods, comms for his helmet, etc)
Bonus Idea: If you listen carefully or share the same hobbies -- truck, bike and car parts would really make him flip. But don't just guess!! These are super specific, specialized parts so if you're not 100% sure, a gift card is a great option as well.
If you have a wife, girlfriend, mama or sister to shop for, this section is for you:
Spa/Salon gift card -- you can NEVER go wrong with this. We love and need to take time for ourselves, so listen carefully and choose a gift card to her favorite hair or nail salon, and/or a reputable spa nearby.)
That new handbag she's been eyeing. Bonus points for the matching wallet! (I gotchu ladies ;)
A memorable event (ie. a vacation or staycation, special night out like a sunset cruise or cooking class) These are extra special when shared with you, so if applicable make sure you get tickets/reservations for you both!
Personalized gift (like a mug, cutting/charcuterie board, tumbler or wine glass) Personalized jewelry is always a hit as well. I know a great engraver with super fast turnaround times!
New boots, shoes or sneakers
A new fancy coat...don't go practical here guys. Needs are not gifts (unless it's to accompany an event from #4!) Thank me later.
A luggage set
Candles, wax warmers, soft throw blankets, a new robe, you know...cozy stuff
Bonus Idea: Books and journals make awesome gifts too! I have tons of amazing books and journals/devotionals I can recommend. Comment below if you'd like a list of some of those.)
These can be especially challenging gifts to buy and we all usually reach for the same old tried and true like a bottle of wine or whatever it was Clark Griswold bought for his boss (and we all know how that one turned out.) Here's a few other ideas that are sure to please:
Coffee subscription! How awesome would it be to send your boss a bag of our delicious, premium coffee each month?!! You can send it to their home or office and you'll be on their mind every time it arrives.
A personalized gift (no, I don't mean like "#1 Boss" although that's still kinda funny in an ironic sorta way.) Something that means something to you both or an inside joke on a desk sign would be ideal.
A gift card for them to do something relaxing or that they enjoy. This shows you listen and appreciate the demanding nature of their position.
Scratch offs (hey, you never know)
Nail polish (girls)
Gift cards (mani/pedi, gas, coffee, etc.)
Travel Size cologne/perfume
Multitool or paracord bracelet
Battery charger for small electronics
I hope some of these ideas help and I'll add to these lists as I come up with more. I could use some new ideas also, so drop a comment below of some great gifts you've given or would like to receive. No idea is too small or too big! Merry Christmas and Happy Hunting!
