AFD Jewelry Holiday Gift Guide: For Him

Do you have a hard time shopping for the men in your life?  I do.  (Hey Dad - what do you want this yer?!?!)  Here are a few things that I think would be great for the men in your life.  Let me know what you think.

Photo Mug - the classic gift for any dad, grandpa, uncle, etc!  My husband and dad both got one of these last year, and I heard through the grapevine that my brother wants one this year too.  As cheesy as they may seem, they truly do make a great gift.  $13 - $16 on http://www.shutterfly.com/ (but check out http://www.retailmenot.com/ before you buy to check for a Shutterfly coupon code!)

Cool shirts.  Personally I'm sick of seeing my husbandin nothing but firefighting shirts, but there is NO getting him out of tees.  Tee Shirt Gnome on Etsy has my new favorite tees for guys.  All men's shirts $25.  Tee Shirt Gnome on Etsy.

Spy Sunglasses.  My favey fave sunglasses for men.  They look great and they're (somewhat) reasonably priced.  If your hubby doesn't lose them or break them (mine has more than once) these bad boys will last him a long time.  Better selection t www.spyoptic.com/ but better prices at http://www.6pm.com/

Music.  Who doesn't love music, and what guy wouldn't want some new tunes to listen to on their way to work?  iTunes gift cards are always great, but so is a good, old-fashioned cd.  I'll be getting Tony the new Neon Trees cd, and maybe a Johnny Cash cd too.  Prices vary.

The Italian Hoodie.  Love it.  Looks cozy and cool. There's even a mini version for matching daddies and sons.  I love it. $64.50, Evy's Tree on Etsy.

COUPONS!  Seriously - don't laugh at me.   I just bought some cute, blank coupons for my husband and will put things like "one night out with the guys without me complaining about it", "one night of cooking your favorite dinner no matter howmuch I hate it, and I'll do the dishes....without complaining about it" (the complaining-free part is the key).  Since you're customizing it, you can go as naughty or as nice as you want with them.  These kind of gifts are the ones that are budget-friendly and usually mean the most.  You can make your own coupon book, or find some on Etsy.  The ones I bought Tony were $2.25 from Pear Creek Cottage on Etsy.

Super cool watch.  Most men have a typical manly-man sturdy silver watch, or something sporty and digital.  Why not go for something a little more funky?  This one is only $35 (normally $175 - what, what?) and is cool enough to become their new everyday favorite.  $34.91, http://www.6pm.com/

Ok....this was the hardest gift guide for me to put together.  Thoughts??  Coming up next: for her.
