Mens Stocking Stuffer Guide

Buying for men is TOUGH. Maybe it’s just my guy, but he never wants anything. And when he does, he buys it. So whenever holidays or birthdays roll around, I am always stumped! At least with stocking stuffers I have my go-to items that are sure to please.

[eafl id=766 name=”Mens Sunglasses” text=”Sunglasses”] / [eafl id=764 name=”mens fun socks” text=”socks”] / [eafl id=763 name=”jack black face lotion” text=”face lotion”] / [eafl id=765 name=”Fitbit Blaze” text=”Fitbit Blaze”] / [eafl id=761 name=”Calvin Klein Boxer Brief” text=”Brief”] / [eafl id=760 name=”Jack Black Clay Pomade” text=”Clay Pomade”] / [eafl id=762 name=”jerky” text=”jerky”] / [eafl id=767 name=”Ibeats” text=”headphones”] / [eafl id=768 name=”gum” text=”gum”]

[eafl id=766 name=”Mens Sunglasses” text=”Sunglasses”] are a hot item in our house. Both Marcus and I have an affinity for a good set of spectacles. Marcus, however, seems to lose them as quickly as he buys them. I can’t count how many pairs of Oakley sunglasses he’s lost over the years! These [eafl id=766 name=”Mens Sunglasses” text=”sunglasses “]are so inexpensive, but you wouldn’t be able to tell by looking at them. Here’s to hoping this expensive habit can be salvaged!

My husband has always been about his funky [eafl id=764 name=”mens fun socks” text=”socks”]. I am always adding to his collection, and these fit the bill! In the book he wrote (releasing soon! #shamelssplug) he explains the significance behind his socks and how it helps him at work. Go check out his website and you can preorder a copy of his book today!

My husband is not high maintenance in the least. He does, however, enjoy a good lotion or product. He started using the Jack Black line in the past couple years and he loves it! This [eafl id=763 name=”jack black face lotion” text=”lotion “]would be a great addition to his collection.

We are a Fitbit household. Both of us are pretty active, and it is a fun way to stay competitive with our fitness goals. Marcus loves his [eafl id=765 name=”Fitbit Blaze” text=”Blaze”]! And my brother in law just got one too. This would be such a great gift for the athletic guy, or the guy who wants encouragement to be more athletic.

This may be TMI, but I recently went through Marcus’ clothes. I don’t want to tell you how old some of his undergarments were. Or maybe I could try and tell you, but they were before my time and I don’t even know how old they are! (We have been together for 9 years for some context). I have been adding to his brief collection and he is a huge fan of these [eafl id=761 name=”Calvin Klein Boxer Brief” text=”Calvin Klein boxer briefs”]! A little more expensive, but I promise they are worth it. He will thank you!

Marcus has used tons of different hair products over the years. When he started using the [eafl id=760 name=”Jack Black Clay Pomade” text=”Jack Black Clay Pomade”], he was sold for life. Very easy to use and to style, and your ‘do stays put and looks effortless.

Is it just my guy, or do men love weird foods? I personally do not understand the [eafl id=762 name=”jerkey” text=”jerky “]thing, but it is always a hit. [eafl id=762 name=”jerkey” text=”This “]variety pack of different types would be a fun gift!

My husband, the king of losing all the things, somehow has hung onto his really nice headphones for a while now. He has and loves his [eafl id=767 name=”Ibeats” text=”Beats”]! Another one that is more money, but totally worth it. If you’ve never tried them, you don’t know what you’re missing! Your guy would be totally thrilled to find [eafl id=767 name=”Ibeats” text=”this “]in his sock.

Always a crowd pleaser in our house is [eafl id=768 name=”gum” text=”gum”]. I have some stashed in my car and diaper bag so I can pop a piece and not offend the world while running errands. We always need more, and we love [eafl id=768 name=”gum” text=”this “]kind!

Ultimate Woman’s Stocking Stuffer Gift Guide

Do you leave buying stocking stuffers to the last minute? (Raises hand…) I am trying to be conscious about it this year and get better about it. My husband, on the other hand, would admit he may or may not forget about my stocking until Christmas Eve every year… and then I get a stocking full of gum and Snickers bars. Not that there is anything wrong with that! But it got me thinking… maybe a gift guide for the guys for stocking stuffers for women might be beneficial! Here is what I thought would be AWESOME to find in my stocking. Some things I use daily but can always use more of, but I would still be equally as excited to get! And some are new and I really think I need too. Gifts are my love language! Sorry…

[eafl id=712 name=”dry shampoo” text=”dry shampoo”] / [eafl id=702 name=”kate spade wallet” text=”wallet”] / [eafl id=714 name=”bangle” text=”bangle”] / [eafl id=715 name=”essie cabana boy” text=”nail polish”] / [eafl id=716 name=”liquid eyeliner” text=”liquid eyeliner”] / [eafl id=708 name=”buxom lipstick” text=”lipstick”] / [eafl id=709 name=”lashblast” text=”mascara”] / [eafl id=710 name=”quay sunglasses” text=”sunglasses”] / [eafl id=711 name=”michael kors x ring” text=”ring”]

[eafl id=712 name=”dry shampoo” text=”Dry shampoo”] is life, whether you are a stay at home mom or not. I know I would appreciate something like this. Let’s hope she thinks you are sweet and not hinting at a hygiene issue…

I’ve had the same [eafl id=713 name=”kate spade wallet” text=”wallet”] for a few years. As much as I love it, it is time for a change. The scallops on this [eafl id=702 name=”kate spade wallet” text=”wallet”] are to die for!

This [eafl id=714 name=”bangle” text=”bangle”] is so simple and chic. Something like this is inexpensive and perfect to add to anyone’s jewelry stack!

These [eafl id=710 name=”quay sunglasses” text=”sunglasses”] are amazing! I love the black rims for winter. I really need a pair. (Husband?)

I have only gotten into painting my nails consistently in the past few months. And even when I do, the polish doesn’t last more than a couple of days. I have always just been really rough with my hands, nevermind adding children to the mix. Either way, I need to add to my polish collection! This [eafl id=715 name=”essie cabana boy” text=”gray”] is so perfect for winter.

When (or if) I do my makeup, you can be sure that [eafl id=716 name=”liquid eyeliner” text=”liquid eyeliner”] is involved. The curse of being naturally blonde is that when I don’t wear makeup or eyeliner specifically, people ask if I’m sick. Wonderful. So, if I go into public and care how I look,[eafl id=716 name=”liquid eyeliner” text=”liquid eyeliner”] is in order.

My sister-in-law introduced me to this [eafl id=717 name=”buxom lipstick” text=”lipstick”] a few months ago and I’m in love! I usually am not a fan of lip-anything since I drink so much water (or eat constantly, let’s be honest), but I can make an exception for [eafl id=717 name=”buxom lipstick” text=”this.”] It subtly plumps your lips and adds just a hint of color. It’s perfect!

I’ve used this [eafl id=709 name=”lashblast” text=”mascara”] since I was in high school. Not even joking. I’ve tried others over the years, but honestly nothing comes close! [eafl id=709 name=”lashblast” text=”This “]is a great staple, low price point, and fits perfectly in the stocking.

I love this [eafl id=711 name=”michael kors x ring” text=”ring”]! I have a cheapie version of it, but this nice Michael Kors ring would be a nice investment. (My husband dislikes when I refer to anything that doesn’t increase in value as an investment. In my opinion, if I call it an investment, it helps justify the purchase. Right?!) [eafl id=711 name=”michael kors x ring” text=”This”] looks so chic as a right hand ring. Simple and understated. Put it in the stocking!

Men, I hope you are planning ahead this Christmas! Get your ladies some nice things in their stockings this year. Believe me, planning ahead pays off!

Have a great day everyone!

My Amazon Wish List

Let’s be real here. Christmastime is a wonderful time of year for giving, but that also means receiving, right? I figured I would share what is on my wish list (cough Marcus cough) and maybe provide some inspiration for gift giving for the woman/friend in your life. Here’s what’s on my Amazon list this year! (Affiliate links used)

amazon-wish-list

 [eafl id=721 name=”echo dot” text=”Echo Dot”] / [eafl id=723 name=”socks” text=”socks”] / [eafl id=724 name=”DW watch” text=”watch”] / [eafl id=726 name=”yhl book” text=”book”] / [eafl id=728 name=”sneakers” text=”sneakers”] / [eafl id=729 name=”leggings” text=”leggings”] / [eafl id=730 name=”boot socks” text=”boot socks”] / [eafl id=732 name=”blanket scarff” text=”Blanket scarves”] / [eafl id=733 name=”puffer” text=”puffer jacket”] / [eafl id=719 name=”pom pom hat” text=”pom pom hat”] / [eafl id=734 name=”belgian waffle maker” text=”waffle maker”] / [eafl id=735 name=”cheese board” text=”cheese board”] / [eafl id=736 name=”lace extender” text=”lace extender”]

I am OBSESSED with my [eafl id=722 name=”echo” text=”Echo”]. Well, it’s actually Marcus’ Echo he got for Christmas last year… But seriously people, you need this! It’s basically a personal assistant. I stream music all day, add items to my shopping list, and check the weather. You need this, therefore you need the [eafl id=721 name=”echo dot” text=”Echo Dot”]. That way you can do all of the above in any room of your house! Done. Order it.

I like to wear taller socks in the winter when I am around the house. These [eafl id=723 name=”socks” text=”socks”] are perfect! Great stocking stuffer too. Great fit and super cute!

This [eafl id=724 name=”DW watch” text=”watch”]. Oh how I have lusted after it for so long. If your girl is a fashion enthusiast, she will love this. Guaranteed. Also comes in a [eafl id=725 name=”mens DW watch” text=”watch”] I bought for Marcus last Christmas! He wears his all the time, so I promise it would be a big hit.

Have you followed Young House Love over the years? I was an avid follower from (almost) the very beginning. If you like to decorate your home, this [eafl id=666 name=”YHL book” text=”book”] is a great tool to guide you!

These [eafl id=728 name=”sneakers” text=”sneakers”] are adorable. Lately I’ve been into the really simple sneaker look. If your girl works out (or just loves the Athleisure trend) then these are a great buy!

Also trending with athletic gear are mesh [eafl id=729 name=”leggings” text=”leggings”]. These are sooooo adorable! Cute and great ventilation. Ha!

My mom gifted me my [eafl id=731 name=”hunter boots” text=”Hunter boots”] for my birthday this year and I wear them more then I thought I would! Love. So naturally, I need a pair of [eafl id=730 name=”boot socks” text=”boot socks”] to accompany them. Please and thank you.

[eafl id=732 name=”blanket scarff” text=”Blanket scarves”] are also new the past couple years. And while it is like wearing a blanket on your neck (my husband nicely reminded me when I wore it last week), who will be laughing when you are snuggly warm and they aren’t?! That’s right. Add to the cart.

I like to wear a thin but warm jacket when I go to the gym in the morning. The one I have I love, but is showing it’s age. [eafl id=733 name=”puffer” text=”This”] is a really cute option! Plus a hood because snow. It’s coming.

I am a bit of a winter accessory hoarder. Do I really need [eafl id=719 name=”pom pom hat” text=”this”] hat too? Yes.

I thought for most of my life that I was a pancake lover. Earlier this year I made waffles instead of my normal pancakes… How could I have been so wrong? Waffles are life. I have a thin waffle maker, but I need to [eafl id=734 name=”belgian waffle maker” text=”get this”] and make big Belgian waffles. Even better!

Charcuterie is my weakness. I could eat my weight in a cheese plate for every meal and be totally ok with it. (My waistline, however, would not be.) [eafl id=735 name=”cheese board” text=”This”] one is really cute! Perfect for holiday parties.

Lace extenders have been around for a bit now. I am not sure how I don’t own one yet? [eafl id=736 name=”lace extender” text=”This”] would be really cute thrown under a simple sweater to dress it up a little bit, or to add length to a shirt to make it acceptable over leggings. Because we all know my [eafl id=737 name=”leggings” text=”leggings”] addiction….

 

Are you paying attention, boyfriends and husbands? Hopefully this provides some inspiration. Let me know what you think and bought! And make sure to report back and tell me how much she loves it.
