  • Tried & Tested: Gift Guide for Him

     

     

    I spent the first couple years of marriage striking out hard in the gifts department for my guy.

    We're both into giving surprise gifts and not just handing each other a list. But a surprise is only really great if the person likes it, hah! So I'm here to save any of you other surprise gift-givers with some tried and true gifts I've given my husband that he has LOVED.

    1. Eno Hammock

    Whether your guy is a hiker or not, this is such a great gift. My husband hangs it in our backyard during the summer and reads. I love to snag it every once in awhile myself. And we can seriously both comfortably sleep in there, nice and cozy.

     Also if you don't mind it in a different color pattern this one is only $34!

    2. Stanley Heritage Thermos

    This thermos gets so much use. When my guy is headed out for a full day, I love to brew him some coffee and fill it to the brim. It keeps it warm all day for him! Your guy not into coffee? It keeps soups warm all day too!

    3. J.Crew Classic Flannel

    You really cannot beat a guy in a classic flannel. And J.Crew makes the classiest ones around in my opinion. And if you shop the Factory, it's only $29!

    4. Traditional Safety Razor

    My guy is sort of an old soul, so this traditional safety razor is right up his alley. Wanna make it extra special? Get it engraved with something sweet!

    5. Jord Wood Watch

    I swear, I have never seen a man get more compliments than when he wears this watch. I get it though, it really is stunning especially when you realize it's made completely out of wood! This is extra special for my husband because he's a woodworker so it fits him perfectly. 

     

    Also I have a code for you guys to get 25% off ANY Jord wood watch so 

    just follow this link to save dat money!

    6. Pair of Theives Dad + Kid Socks

    I mean, does it get any cuter than matching Dad + Kid stuff?

    7. Stumptown Coffee

    Good coffee is always a good idea.

    8. Herschel Supply Co. Travel Kit

    Whether he's going out of town or just showering after the gym, help your guy travel in style and keep all his things together.

    9. Classic Macalister Boots

    These boots have held up so well for my man and they are so easy to dress up or dress down.

    10. Sudio Wireless Headphones

    These headphones are such great quality and make it so easy to just sync with your phone and listen to music or podcasts. Use code HONEYSUCKLE for 15% off. 

    Maybe a subscription to Apple Music to go with?

    11. Leather Magic Wallet

    This slim wallet was a game changer for my guy. He loves to travel light and this little wallet surprisingly holds a lot!

    12. Camp Style Coffee Mug 

    A manly mug if I ever did see one. He can heat it over the fire or warm it on the stove.

    So there you have it. Some tried and tested gifts by yours truly. 

    Give your man something he won't return this year!

    As this January has had some unseasonably warm weeks, I've been taking full advantage.
    Sneaking in a Spring look a little early for this month's look.
    Currently wearing:
    Handmade
    I might be a tad biased since Kerry is my best friend, but her bags and clutches are my absolute favorite! The black leather in this bag is so soft and quality and paired with gold hardware, I get compliments on it wherever I go.
    I love this little gold bar necklace and I wear it almost everyday. I actually won it
    in a giveaway that Callie Jewelry had and got it initial with G&G on it for my two little boys.
    I've had it over a year and it's held up really beautifully.
    Deal of the Day
    I could not believe it when I saw that these were $13 on Amazon! They looked so much like
    real leather in the picture and I was a huge skeptic, but for $13 I decided to take a chance.
    And I'm so glad I did. Perfectly neutral with a bit of flair, fit true to size and comfortable!
    They're definitely not the quality of real leather, but I'll take a good knock off anyway!
    Secondhand
    I've told you guys about ThredUp before but I just really love everything they do.
    Their customer service and free returns have been so awesome. Since moving to a small town, I've had to depend on online shopping a lot more and it's been nice to be able to find some well priced pieces online since I don't have the resources for clothing thrifting like I once did.

  • Currently Wearing Vol. II

    As spring weather gives way to warm here in the Midwest, I get excited to break out the clothes I haven't seen in awhile.
    Currently wearing:
     
    End of Season Sales
    I like to buy things on major clearance at the end of a season even if I know I'll have to wait awhile to actually wear it. Like this Anthropologie lace up, ruffle top. I had to tuck it away for awhile but I knew my future self would thank me for it. 

    Instagram Closet Sales
    I bought these Madewell skinnies from a friend's Instagram closet sale.
    But I also have several accounts I like to keep an eye on like @pennythrift and @co_reclaimed 

    I'm also shedding a single tear for the end of peony season right now. Until next year, favorite flower.


    Summer slides
    All I wanted this summer was some cute sandals to slide on as I'm running out the door that go with everything. These Blowfish Ginah slides in linen were just the ticket.




    I mean, when the baby is ready for a bike ready, you gotta be ready to go slide something on and go. :)



    Sunday Best
    I was raised that you get dressed up for church and I just can't shake it. I love
    getting out skirts and dresses for me and button downs and suspenders for my boys.

    This Noonday Collection necklace makes me feel fancy no matter what 
    I'm wearing. And I love the mission behind this company. 
    Check it out if you haven't heard of it yet!


    What's a favorite item you're pulling out of your closet these days?
