Why is it that guys are always the hardest to shop for? There's either nothing they want, nothing they need and you just don't feel like the basic "I buy this for you once a year" necessities -- socks, boxers, etc. -- are enough. (Remind me again why they say we're the more complicated ones?) I've found that keeping a note in my phone helps in case someone randomly mentions something they want throughout the year and I'll quickly jot it down. But that doesn't always happen, and when it doesn't I'm left up to my own creative devices.
Don't get me wrong, the basics are great...and necessary! A classic sweatshirt or new tees are always awesome gifts. And you can never go wrong with a watch that goes with everything. My husband swears that a brown leather watch is a must, which is why I love this one by Daniel Wellington (use code ALLYCOG for 15% off!).
But if you're looking to kick it up a notch, I love something like the Ninja Coffee Bar if a guy in your life is into a good cup of morning joe (and who isn't, really?). You'll likely benefit as well when he starts thinking he's a barista, so it's totally worth the splurge ;) I also love the idea of a new piece of technology, like these wireless headphones that run off of Bluetooth.
What do you get the men in your life? I'm always looking for new ideas so please feel free to share!
