Hi loves! Happy Thursday! I hope that your week has been going great! At our house we are all battling colds…sore throats and the sniffles. Charlie has been home from school for the past two days, and Jordan just got back from a week long business trip overseas. So I am way behind on my holiday gift guide posts. You may have seen on my Instagram stories that we celebrate both Hanukah and Christmas. Hanukah started this week, so our gift giving has already begun! We give the kids one small gift for each of the eight nights of Hanukah. Small toys, race cars, stuffed animals, candy, books, pajamas, slippers, puzzles. Then on Christmas they get their larger (more expensive) gifts.
Jordan and I typically wait until Christmas to give each other our gifts, and keep Hanukkah about the kids. When it comes to finding the perfect gifts for him I like to either upgrade items that he’s owned for years that need to be replaced, freshened up or updated. Think his favorite briefcase, button down and tie, slippers and/or sneakers, watch (I love the gunmetal hue of this one!), or jacket that he uses regularly. Or I like to look to technology and gift him new electronic products; like a fitbit or Nest. I got him Bose headphones a few years ago and he LOVES them, especially when he travels. He is constantly complaining about our energy bills, so the Nest Thermostat is at the top of the list for this year.
Last year I got him a new TV for our front living room, which was a big hit with both him and the kids. He always keeps some business cards in his iPhone case, so this phone case would be perfect for him. And he’s a big whiskey drinker so he loves these whiskey cubes. The whiskey cubes are one of those items that he loves and uses regularly that could use an update/refresh.
In general, I love to find items for him that are classic and timeless. Items that are durable enough to hold up for years to come. Today is the last day to order online and have your orders arrive in time for Christmas using standard shipping. If you don’t want to pay for expedited shipping costs my best tip is place your order online but select in store pick up. Some retailers, like Nordstrom, even have curbside pick up…genius and a total lifesaver!!!
Happy holiday shopping!!
