Guys Gift Guide

Today I'm partnering with Nordstrom to share a few gift ideas for the guys in your life.  Husbands, dads, brothers... why are the guys always the hardest to buy for?!?!  Like always, I like to shop at Nordstrom for gifts because they make exchanges and returns insanely easy.  If you end up needing a different size or color the process is fast and simple which is perfect when you're giving a gift.

(you can shop the graphic above by clicking on the item numbers!)

1/2 - I mentioned before that Dave RARELY buys anything for himself, so I really love picking up pieces for him that I know he'll wear a ton and will last a long time.  Since he's in and out of restaurant kitchens all day he doesn't love spending time/money on his work wardrobe (he's SUPER basic when it comes to that) but he does appreciate some good Nike apparel :)  

I grabbed  these pants and  this hoodie for him a few weeks ago and he has worn them a TON!  

These pictures are from the other night (and yes... my boys are in shorts and t-shirts because they are NEVER cold.  Anyone else's kids like this??)...

... and he obliged my request for a photo of the hoodie because look how great the neckline is!

This is what happens when we try to take a group pic :)

3 - I talked about these slippers last week and they would be a great gift that the recipient would get lots of years of wear out of.  They're a bit of a splurge and something that they might not buy themselves which would be a great surprise on Christmas morning.

4 - Dave got a  portable Bose speaker last year and has used it pretty much every day since.  It's what we play music on throughout our house, out by the pool, in the driveway when we're doing yard stuff, to Mason's football practice, etc.   This one is great because it's waterproof!

5 - Our family LOVES a good blanket and  this barefoot dreams throw is one of our favorites.  It's soft and light and perfect for snuggling up on the couch. 

6 - We don't need gloves very often in Texas, but if you live in a colder climate this pair is great because you don't have to take them off to use your smartphone.  Dave has a similar pair that he's already pulled out for the season :)

7 - I've been searching for a new cologne for Dave (this is something that he wouldn't go out and buy for himself) and am LOVING  this Joe Malone scent.  It has great reviews as well!

8 - I mentioned that Dave's work wardrobe is pretty basic, but he does love  fun socks and the kids always have fun picking them out for him.  

9 - I gave Dave  this zip-front jacket and he's already worn it way more than I thought he would. It's washed and worn really well and is a piece that I think he'll have in his closet for a long time.

10 -  These flip flops would be a perfect stocking stuffer because who couldn't use an extra pair of flip flops!

11 - Dave's notorious for just grabbing his credit card and throwing it into his pocket when we go places and I think  this cell phone case would work really well for him. 

I'd love to know what great guy gift ideas y'all have up your sleeves.  Big gifts, stocking stuffers, etc. share in the comments!

Thank you so much to Nordstrom for partnering with me on this post!  The links above are affiliate links and I so appreciate y'all supporting my blog!

  7. My husband got a Bose speaker last year and we both love it! We use it all the time!!

  8. My kids literally want to be naked all the time. It will be 22 degrees outside and they're sitting inside in their underwear. I'm sure they would dress like that outside during the winter, too, if we would let them. It's crazy.

  9. Ummmm, am I allowed to say...Dave is looking HOT!! LOVE that salt and pepper hair. It looks so stinkin good on him. You should get a leash for him for Christmas. HAHA! Love your blog Andrea!! Yours is my absolute favorite, and I read a lot of blogs. Keep up the good work!
