Como estan my fashionable friends!? I hope everyone had a great few months off of the blog, like I did. Time to get back in the saddle!!
‘Tis the season for presents, my birthday, and layers. Which means…it is my favorite time of year! Today’s post is all about HOLIDAY PRESENT IDEAS. For the guy who is having a hard time thinking of what he wants, or the lady who is scrambling to think of present ideas for her man, I have got you covered. Good for any budget, I will cover the spectrum of men’s stylish gifts for this holiday giving [and receiving] season.
Enjoy the weather, football, Hanukkah gelt, and Christmas cookies. Leave me feedback, comments, and questions if you have any! Happy present shopping
Be balanced from Lokai
One of my favorite, and least expensive gifts. With mud from the dead sea and water from Mt. Everest, the metaphor of balance, should always be on your person. With their ‘classic’ clear bracelet always on sale, every few months they come out with a special limited edition to support a good cause. So, not only are being fashionable, you are supporting a great cause as well!
To Infinity and beyond!
One would say the infinity scarf is only for the female fashionista. I say, no way Jose! It is very much scarf season right now, which is the perfect reason to pick up an inexpensive addition to a great outfit. The infinity scarf doesn’t have to be learned how to fold it around your neck. Put it on, swoop it around your head, and you’re done. Pick one up at H&M, and thank me later!
There are a number of websites that offer a number of men’s accessories. Buy one, or many. My top choices: lapel pin, cuff links, pocket square.
If you really want to pretend to be thoughtful, buy him a subscription from one of the many services that will send him a box of accessories every month. My top spot – Harrison Blake.
Slipper Mocs from Rancourt & Co.
Try these from Rancourt & Co. I was told about these from my dude Dan via Instagram. Said they are the most comfy and warm moccasin slippers on the market! Yes, better than UGG…that’s right…I said it! What better way to roam around your house, or run to the grocery store in warm style, than some dope slippers!
MA-1 Bomber Jacket from Alpha Industries
Basically, if you don’t have a bomber jacket, at least by 2017, then you are severely hurting your “fashionable” status. Not only are they the hottest thing in the men’s style world right now, but they really are both functional and fashionable. Bring back the inner Maverick in you, and get pick something up from Alpha Industries!
High-top Chucks from Converse
#Classics These bad boys are a great multi-seasonal shoe, that can be worn with almost any outfit. There is not much that hasn’t already been said about these shoes. So, basically, if you don’t already have them, you should get them, NOW!
Can’t get Yeezy’s. Don’t want any more Roshe’s. Get these boys…in “Trace Cargo” color (forest green IMO). They serve dual purpose, great with casual night out (would also go with above mentioned joggers), great for gym swag.
Yes, a $10 belt from Target accomplishes the same goal – it holds your pants up. But, for the sake of fashion, spruce it up. Statement belts are all in the buckle. They also can cost between $200-$1000. But they say something about the man that is wearing it, ergo, statement belt. My love is for Salvatore Ferragamo, and his belts. However, if you have a favorite designer or pattern you are looking for, splurge a little on something fun!
