It’s Time for the First Gift Guides

Hey friends! Well I’ve been putting this off as long as possible, but it’s time for the first gift guides to show up. Everyone is saying we need to be shopping early this year due to shipping and inventory issues. I’ve read 60% of people are expected to be done with their holiday shopping by Thanksgiving. That’s crazy to me. I’m joining my Chit Chat Chic friends sharing gift guides on our blogs today. Last night they discussed gift guides on Chit Chat Chic on Instagram. I’ve got two guides for you today. Gifts for him under $100 and under $50.

time for the first gift guides


HALF ZIP RAIN JACKET – Easy to wear and carry for weekends, travel and ballgames

COTTON & CASHMERE SWEATER – Cotton and Cashmere are so soft and this is a great option for the man in your life.

TECH HALF ZIP – Do you have a runner or just a guy who likes to look sporty? This is a great idea.

HYDRO FLASK BOTTLE – Another good option for the athlete or outdoor guy, but sometihng any guy would enjoy using

SHAVING CREAM – Not your average shaving cream, but slightly more sophisticated

NORTH FACE BEANIE – I feel like this gift guide could have been called “gifts for the weekend”. A beanie can be worn all winter long to keep his noggin warm

TOUCHSCREEN GLOVES – Same with the gloves and these are made so he can still use his phone

CORKSCREW – Wine lover? How about a new corkscrew.

DOPP/SHAVING KIT – Travel is coming back and that means it’s time to replace travel items. This is a nice little bag for toiletries

DRI-FIT BOXER BRIEFS – And lastly, boxer briefs…this will go great under the joggers below.

FLEECE VEST – These vests look good with so many things from joggers to jeans to cotton pants. Perfect for warmer winter days or temperate climates

ROBE – Kent loves his robes. They are great for keeping warm in winter, getting out of the shower or even when you have guests.

BACKPACK – He also loves his backpack and carries it when we travel to hold his computer and misc things.

SLIPPERS – Another big hit with him has been slippers. I even got him a second pair to keep at the Nashville house.

VANS SNEAKERS – Benny likes Vans and I know a lot men do these days. They’ve been making a big resurgence and are very on trend

WALLET – Great for the guy who has everything

JOGGERS – Joggers are such a great alternative to sweats for men. Much more stylish but still comfortable

BLANKET – Why not give him his very own blanket. Even college age guys might like these for the dorm

COLOGNE – Just like us they like to smell good.

DUFFLE – This is a good looking duffle for weekend trips or even going to the gym.

Have you started shopping yet? I’ve picked up a few things, but I think it’s time to get serious. I feel like this is the year to be proactive based on the way it sounding.

Are there certain gift guides you’d like to see? Let me know in the comments. As time goes by, I’ll be continuing to work on more gift guides and share them soon.

    It’s really never too early to share gift guides, I wish bloggers would start sooner! We’re already done buying for my son (he’s 5) and we decided only to do a few gifts for each other. One from Santa to keep the Santa magic alive, one that our son picks out for us (with a little guidance!), and stockings, of course.

    Honestly, as soon as I saw the first article about toy shortages, higher prices, and shipping delays, I made a list and was finished the next week.
