Tis the Season: Gifts for Him

Happy Friday friends :)!

For this week's Five on Friday I'm switching it up
and talking about gifts for your guy.

Or your dad.

Or your brother.

Any dude will do :)

So let's get down to it shall we?

Numero Uno
This is hands down one of the best gifts I've ever purchased. I bought this for C last year cause he's a whiskey guy and he LOVES them. They will work with any kind of liquor and could probably help with beer too [ I refuse to drink beer, so I don't know if people enjoy beer extra cold, but it makes sense to me]. The set I bought was not very expensive and they have held up pretty well so far. The miss-match glasses are kind of cool and I felt kind of 'bad@ss' drinking whiskey 'neat'.

Numero Dos
Athletic Wear or Favorite Sports Paraphernalia
99.9% of the male population loves sports and have at least one favorite team. Why  not show them you love them AND care about one of their favorite hobbies with a team jersey, shirt, or hat? Many stores run mega sales near Christmas to push old merchandise and this is a great time to check out deals. If your guy is a mega sports man, he'll love you knowing how much sports mean to him :)!

Numero Tres
Experience Gifts
By far one of the coolest gifts out there, the experience gift is one your guy will remember for ever. Had he expressed interest in racing a sports car? Flying a plane? Deep sea fishing? Or taking a cooking/building/boating class? Get him that once in a lifetime experience and watch him act like a child with joy. This gift will not just help him check something off his bucket list, but it will also create memories that will last a lifetime!

Numero Cuatro
SOMETHING of the month club
I found this gift a few years ago and think it's pure genius. Does your guy love cheese, beer, wine, chocolate, whiskey and love trying new things? If so, this is the PERFECT gift for him. There are three tiers of pricing, depending on HOW many months you purchase [three, six or twelve] and they won't break the bank. I've suggested this gift to a few friends and earned helped them earn MEGA brownie points from their respective dudes, so if your struggling for a gift idea, this one is a winner for sure.

Numero Cinco
Coupon Book
When all else fails, a coupon book is a CLASSIC save that anyone can appreciate. Does your man hate doing laundry? Or dishes? Or taking out the trash? Or does he love massages, head scratches and....you know ;)!? Why not give him a gift you know he already loves? This way he can use the coupons whenever he wants and you know it will make him happy too. WIN-WIN :)

Do you have any fun gifts for guys?!?!

Rock out, knock out:

My bit of cheer to share from yesterday
is a quick snap shot from my kitchen
while cooking dinner.

Pine scented candle smelling up the air,
Trans-Siberian Orchestra Pandora playing in the background
and glass of red wine sipped from a Christmas mug. 

Can't get more Christmas than that right?!?

And those on-the-rocks glasses are all the rage right now. I may just have to look into them for my man...He does love a good glass of Crown now and then...

My husband bought himself the whiskey rocks a few months ago and loves them! They work well in my wine too :) I blame you that I'm getting a mug out right now and pouring wine in it!

I was contemplating if it was socially acceptable to drink wine from my newest purchase--a Santa mug. After reading this I feel that it is okay! Stopping by from the link up--have a great weekend!

Those whiskey stones are pretty stinkin' neat! I've never seen anything like that. While we don't drink liquor (beer is our poison), they seem like a great gift.
