Gift Guide Men


Buying a gift for my husband and father is always the hardest part of gift-buying season for me. They both have EVERYTHING that a man could possibly want so I’m forced to either get super creative or just stick to the basics: oxford, polo shirts, and golf gear.


This year, there seem to be a lot more man-gift ideas out there. I’m a big fan of Harry’s products and packaging so this shaving kit is the perfect pressy for hip dudes. Anel and I love our Swell bottles because they keep water cold literally all day long. This black matte version is super manly. Of course I couldn’t make a gift guide without a Daniel Wellington watch. Their watches are classic, sleek, and sell for a great price.


Don’t forget, all of my holiday gift guide picks (plus more!) can be found on this Pinterest board. Keep an eye on it because I add new pieces every day.

Just looking at these photos is making me cold. I wore this cozy outfit last weekend to a double date lunch at Harlan Social with Lauren and her boyfriend Mike. It was a freezing cold day but getting out of the house was definitely good for us. Anel and I are slowly making friends in the ‘burbs. It’s a hard and slow process but we’re getting there!


I was shocked (shocked I tell you!) when I found this chic faux-fur black vest at Target last Saturday. It’s $34 but looks high-end and feels even better. I paired it with this buffalo check flannel shirt that I borrowed from my sister. She comes over on Sunday nights and we have a ritual where we swap clothes for the week. I’ll lend her a scarf and she’ll give me a shirt and it’s like we have double the wardrobe.


Her style is very different than mine. She is a true New Yorker in that she’s in to dark colors and edgier cuts. We tend to wear the same pieces very differently. She would probably wear this shirt to work under a sheath dress with heels. I tend to have a more casual vibe.


In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I could rattle off a million reasons why I’m thankful (and I will, that’s coming) but having a sister who is the same size as I am with impeccable taste is pretty great!

Holy gift guide overload! I take back what I said last week. I keep finding such great gift ideas that I just HAD to share them with you. Having just moved to a much bigger space (It wasn’t hard as our Manhattan apartment was essentially a walk-in closet), all thing home are on my mind. My Christmas list this year is full of home-goods.


Of course there are ginger jars galore along with other decorative accents like agate book ends and a monogrammed tray. I’m also quite into the Faribault for Target collaboration. This plaid throw is under $80 but belongs in a high-end New England ski house.

I have always loved a good fair aisle sweater but this one really takes the cakes because of the cute little anchor slash snowflake pattern, cowl neck, and flattering cut. It hugs the right places and fits well over other shirts. I’ll definitely be pulling it out again for tree-trimming and holiday cookie-baking.


I wore it over the weekend when Anel and I hit up the Christmas section of Target. OMG. That alone is a reason to move to the suburbs, you guys! Of course we went in to buy toothpaste and laundry detergent and left with lights, wrapping paper, garlands, wreaths, and so much more. It was magical!


That same night we decided to explore a nearby town, Westport. We went to The Whelk for dinner which, if you live in the area, is a must-try! Think fresh clams, deviled eggs with fried oysters and pickled onions, and squid ink cavatelli all served in a cozy candle-lit rustic space on the water. It might just be our new go-to for date night. We have yet to find “our spot” out in the ‘burbs but exploring is certainly an adventure.
