Friday Favorites – Gifts for Your Man Edition

Good Golly Miss Molly! That week just went by at warped speed. Here we are and it’s already Friday.

Sounds like for those of you living in the southeast ol’ Phil not seeing his shadow has translated into, just add water for instant spring. Of course being a former resident of said southeast, I know how this one goes. BAM, next week y’all might have a foot of snow. That’s okay, I like to call it the February reprieve. If we’d have had that in Minnesota, winters would have been much more tolerable.

I haven’t even told y’all that we woke up to a dusting of snow one day this week. No, seriously. We did. At first I thought Kent was messing with me and I literally was thinking ‘it’s not April 1st’. HAHAHA! So here’s what our harsh winter looks like.

Monday I shared some gift ideas for her…aka YOU for Valentine’s Day and before we get any closer to the “Day of Love”, I’ve got to cover some ideas for your man. So we interrupt your regularly scheduled programming for this special edition of Friday Favorites – Gifts for your man.❤️

1|| 2 || 3 || 4 || 5 || 6 || 7 || 8 || 9 || 10 || 11 || 12 || 13

ONE – We all want our men to be groomed…or at least I do. This looks like a pretty comprehensive set of tools for a great price.

TWO – Along the same lines, these days a can of Barbasol isn’t always the shave cream of choice. Men are gettin’ all fancy and like to get in on the special creams and lotions too.

THREE – So I know about these from my kids. They both have them and love them. Is your guy outdoorsy? Even if he’s not, he might like one of these take along hammocks. They are easy to put up and great for trips to the park to (if you have trees at your park) I’m going to go out on a limb (hahaha, pun intended?) and say you and kids would enjoy it too.

FOUR –  Apple airpods! These are supposed to be the bees knees if your special someone uses earbuds. I’ve read some other bloggers who say they are awesome. This is on the higher end of the price range, but I’m guessing would be a big hit.

FIVE – Again, this one falls a little on the pricier end of the spectrum, but a nice watch is always a good idea.

SIX – These made the Christmas gift list and are making an encore here. If you’re honey is a runner, then these socks will be perfect. Benny swears by them and sent them to Kent as a gift last year.

SEVEN – Another repeat from Christmas. A Yeti mug to keep coffee warm. Kent received one of these for Christmas and guess who’s been using it. Me?So this is a gift you can both enjoy…actually a lot of these are. LOL

EIGHT – Apparently all the cool kids are wearing Patagonia 1/4 zips. Benny, Erin and Katie all have them in one version or another and love them. He really likes them and apparently they are super comfortable.

NINE – These underwear were one of Benny’s requested Christmas gifts and I’m happy to say Santa delivered.

TEN – Kent has been LOVING this little gadget. It’ works perfectly and is such a great price point for just a little something or an add-on.

ELEVEN – Bose makes great speakers and a bluetooth speaker is perfect carrying along…maybe when he takes his new ENO to the park.?

TWELVE – How about a pair of gloves that can be worn and you can still work your phone? YES!

THIRTEEN – When all else fails, CHOCOLATES. They are always the right size, and if he doesn’t like chocolate…get rid of him. KIDDING, but I don’t get that. HA! Yet again, another gift you’ll likely benefit from. Have we established a pattern here?

Have a great weekend friends!

    That is crazy about the California snow! Great gift ideas! I like the phone holder. I have a similar one, but it is way bulkier and doesn’t rotate. Hope you have a good weekend.

      I think Carrie (Curly Crafty) might have those if you have any questions. They sound (hahaha sound) awesome. Yep, we had some snow and I must have missed the flying pigs. LOL

    I got some airpods for Christmas and love them! They are so nice for running because no cords to accidentally pull and tug it out! These are all great ideas!

    • February 11, 2019 / 9:11 am

      I bet they’re awesome for running! Hmmm, I wonder if Benny would want some for his birthday. He’s doing his first marathon on his birthday this spring. Happy Monday! OX

    • February 11, 2019 / 9:06 am

      Agreed!!! Oh yes, I’ve seen more than my fair share of snow. LOL

  7. February 8, 2019 / 5:47 pm

    Great list of gift ideas for my man, Lisa! Now to decide on which one! Both Wayne and Alise want airpods but they may need to wait for Christmas 2019! Ha!

    • February 11, 2019 / 9:06 am

      Those earpods are supposed to be so good. Have a great week my sweet friend! XO

    Shouldn’t you guys be exempt from the snow in Cali?! My dad will be horrified to hear this haha. (He loves SoCal, it’s like his oasis.) Strangely enough, I think you live pretty close to my bffl (she’s near San Jose), so I wonder if she woke up to snow this week too! Hope you’re having a great weekend!

    • February 11, 2019 / 9:06 am

      One would think. It’s actually really CRAZY how much areas like Tahoe have been getting and mind blowing too. Just a couple of hours away things are totally different. YES, we’re about 45+/- minutes from San Jose. ?? Have the best week!! XO

    Crazy that you got snow, even a smidge! My husband is so hard to shop for! That hammock is awesome!

      It really is and that it’s hanging around on the higher elevations. My kids love their hammocks! Happy Monday! XO

    I find something for my husband difficult. I think shopping for my teenager is ten times easy 😉 The question is always what do they really want? I think they are more easy to shop for than what we think, yet I still go crazy. The hammock is such a cute idea. I think I want it more me hahaha


    • February 11, 2019 / 9:06 am

      That’s the sweet thing about buying for them…get something you can use too?

    • February 21, 2019 / 10:48 pm

      I totally agree. Chocolate is always a winner. XO
