Gift Guide 2012: Guys

November 28, 2012

Everyone knows that guys are the hardest to buy for… husbands, daddies, brothers, grandpas. It’s just hard to find the right gift. So, here’s my best attempt to find the gifts for the men in my life.

Boys will be boys, and reliably, they always play with their food. At least give them an instrument where they can put this trait to good use: musical wine glasses.

When in law school, JD carried his laptop everywhere, and that was before the iPad! I think this would have been a simple, masculine case for protecting all those Con Law notes.

A stocking stuffer for the deep Chevy Chase fan, why not a National Lampoon mug or Fletch jersey?

Ha! Well, this seems counterintuitive, but I know a couple of guys who’d love this.

While we’re talking about bacon… now that is a stylish paperweight.

While we’re in the Etsy category, these steampunk goggles would be a fun desk or house item for the vintage lover.

What guy doesn’t love good tv? A DVD set of his favorite series is a good idea. These are a few that I know JD would like: The Walking Dead, ESPN’s 30 for 30, and Breaking Bad.

For the lawn and garden guy, this Scout Regalia, fully-stocked and assembled garden for your deck or porch would be perfect for a beginning, or just a weary gardener. I love the whole package!

I absolutely like these rugged watches and watch straps that J.Crew has to offer. The straps are interchangeable, and they look so outdoorsy plus appropriate for work.

Wildsam Field Guides… written by Vanderbilt alum Taylor Bruce, these part-almanac, part-best of features different city guides. Of course, Nashville was the inaugural edition. JD got the book for his birthday, and we both have poured over it… and we live here! (Thanks, Bearings.)
