I always look forward to the holiday season but this year more than most. This has been such a hard year for many people that I think some joy and time together with family will be very welcome. Seeing the holidays through my grandson’s eyes is especially magical and just what I need.
Just like last year, we’ll be sharing some of our picks for Gift Guides this year to help with your shopping! I would love to hear in the comments if there are any specific people or gift guides on your list this year!
I always struggle to find clever gift ideas for the men in my life, but most especially their stockings. Several of you have asked me for stocking stuffer ideas for the men in your life so here are a few.
Nothing says getting cozy quite like a new pair of slippers. I love the look of these Ugg Slippers – and I know they’re super warm and comfy. I got my husband a similar pair last year and they’re a huge hit! He wears a size 14 shoe so they were a hard squeeze for the stocking, but he sure loves them:)
Wow! What a cool concept. This wireless charger will charge AND clean them using UV technology. I read an article last year about how many germs are on our phones (Spoiler alert: it is really gross!) I like the idea of a dual-purpose cleaner and charger.
Cozy hats are always a favorite around my house. I’m not able to do any knitting this year due to my hand surgery so I’m glad to be able to find lots of snuggly options. This classic beanie is great for men to be able to tuck into a jacket pocket or keep in their car for cold snaps.
Now, for those who are looking for an investment item! My kids absolutely love their Apple Watches. It’s pretty incredible what they can do – both in terms of the applications you can run and the fitness tracking. There are so many options, it boggles the mind! They’re great for the older and younger men in your life. This one comes in lots of colors to suit everyone.
With all of us in close proximity these days, we’ve found noise-canceling air buds invaluable!! We can all listen to our heart’s content without annoying other people in the room:)
In my household, masks are a permanent staple when we go outside. Our faces are not all the same size and it’s important you have the proper fit to be comfortable. My masks don’t come anywhere near close to covering my husband’s face so he needs ones like these, which fit, look good, and are highly rated.
Last but not least, for the wine lovers in your life. A new aerator and bottle opener is the perfect stocking stuffer!
Actually, I did save the least for last. I like to include a mind-bending puzzle of some sort in everyone’s stocking. We have fun laughing about who can and cannot figure them out plus it keeps people busy while they’re recovering from the gift opening excitement.
