There is a big difference between men and women when it comes to gifts. You ask a women what she wants and we rattle off a million things. Then go ask a man and what do you get? Nothing. A simple "i don't care" or "i don't know". I am here to break a man's mind down to see what they really want. After asking some of my close guy friends, I found out "simple but a statement" is what they really want. You look in a girl's sunglasses collection and there are all different styles, sizes, and colors. When you look in a man's collection, it is one simple pair. Keep this in mind when shopping for the man in your life, pick something he will use until it is falling apart! You can also take this time to use your fashion sense to persuade him into trying new things! When men shop, they buy what they know. Get him to try something he normally won't. Hopefully by creating this gift guide for all my girls out there, shopping for him can be a little bit more fun and a lot less stressful!
Most times when you think of accessories you think of women's handbags, jewelry and sunglasses. But men can have accessories too! Great additions like these to a man's outfit can completely change the way he looks and pull the outfit together. One of my favorite pieces that men have been starting to carry over the past few years are leather duffle bags like this Libson Italian Leather Duffle. This would be great for a man who loves to travel.
Believe it or not, men care about smelling good just as much as women, if not more! I don't think we have a problem with that though! One of my favorites is Desire by Alfred Dunhill. It has a very romantic scent with notes of fruits and woods with low notes of musk and vanilla. It is the perfect scent for date night! I would give it to him right before you go out for dinner so he can try it out!
For shoes, pick a pair that can be dressed up and dressed down. He will then have more opportunities to wear them. For that same reason, also try and stick with a neutral color that will pair well with any outfit! These All Saints Leather boots are my favorite men's boots! They look great whether they are worn with jeans or pants that are a bit dressier. They are rustic and vintage looking. Love them!
Girls, this is your time to get your man to try something new and stylish! One of the trends I am so ready for all guys to get rid of are baggy below the knee shorts! I can't even explain how horrible they look! Pick out a pair of fitted shorts that lay just above the knee, he will thank you once he see's how much cleaner and polished he looks. Please help put an end to those awful baggy shorts for everyone's sake!
