Seasons Greetings my babes! Now that we're in full Christmas season swing, we need to discuss something important!
What to get ya man for Christmas!
Boyfriend, brother, father, best guy friend, guy you've been stalking on instagram for the past few months now....
Whoever! It's important to actually get them something they want and will use. I thought I'd leverage my boyfriend, Justin to get good ideas :).
If you don't know, this is Justin, he's my 4 year running roommate, love, and best friend. He is sweet, kind, funny, and super CHILL.
Of all his endearing qualities, Justin has dope style. I cannot shop for him or take any credit for the way he dresses, because I don't think he actually wants to wear anything I get him.
But he dresses well.
He's always a bit ahead of the curve, not wearing short sleeve polo shirts that his mom just bought him when he was 15 at TJ Maxx (no hate on TJ's tho!)
I mean, I never thought I'd date someone with good style, TBH.
So I had Justin pick out some dope threads for guys for Christmas, or even just as a nice thing to do. I mean a guy dressing well also benefits you, right?
I feel like most guys are still wearing their college t-shirts and baggy jeans, no? I can't hate 'em because its' practical but the men need an upgrade sometimes (most times) and we need to be there to give it to them!
Let me know what you think! Any other guys style questions? ASK AWAY.
Stores to shop
Supreme: Streetwear, that's dope. ONLY NY: A favorite for t-shirts and hats. A beach-ier vibe. Common Projects: Really quality clothes and the best shoes. Undefeated: Best shoe selection there is. Stussy: Very street, so keep that in mind!Vans: Justin wears the F out of his Vans. They are such good everyday shoes.Urban Outfitters: One of my favorites for men's. Pac Sun: Randomly, it's so on point with clothes for men.Nordstrom: Good for accessories and nicer itemsNotre Shop: On the more expensive side, but quality goods that last forever. Vince: Good classic men's clothes that will LAST.
What to buy this year for Christmas:
Men's Bombers: They fit well and are a super cool way to look fashionable, fast.
Joggers: Super comfortable and a way to wear skinny jeans that's not too stuffy.
Scalloped Bottom Shirts: Having scalloped buttons, and a larger collar can make a mans chest look broader and bigger. Super flattering I swear.
Grown Up Briefcase: So key for your 9-5 man.
A Nice Tie: Always a classic, it's a nice way to spice up their stocking stuffer
Weekender Travel Bag: Something they don't know they need, this they will use during weekend getaways with you!
Classic Wallet: I feel like every man uses an old wallet, it's time to upgrade!
Toiletries Bag: I needed one of these, and realized that Justin does too. A classic that they'll use everyday.
Apple Watch: On the more expensive side :) he'll love you FOREVER!
Shop best gifts:
Or, as a last idea, my friends, I would do a trip or an active present! I am doing a trip with Justin, we're going up the Pacific Coast staying at hotels and airbnb's all the while. I'll be documenting and sharing it with you, of course. But instead of buying something we're doing experiences :)
What are you planning to get the man in your life? Anything I missed?
