Holiday Gift Guide: For Him

3 min read



Once again, we’ve solicited Thomas’s help in curating our men’s gift guide for a much needed male perspective to shopping for the special men in our lives. From clothing, to skin care, to accessories, to gadgets for the home, Thomas not only covers his favorite items this season, but the reasoning behind why he recommends them.

“I’m a man of value. While I typically don’t like to splurge on things for myself (I use a $$$ per use formula to help decide), one area that I’m willing to spend for great quality is my wallet.”

“A neutral color scarf is a great option even for the stubborn non-scarf wearer.”

“I love these two options for gloves: a leather glove for a more dressed up look, and wool blend gloves that are cozy and warm.”

“I’m obsessed with Darn Tough socks. They come in multiple lengths, comfortable, warm and durable. They’re great for outdoor activities like hiking or skiing, as well as with casual work outfits when I wear sneakers.”

“This may sound too simplistic, but a couple years ago Julia got me a really nice comb and I’ve used it everyday since.”

“We love our Yeti coolers, especially the soft styles as they’re so much easier to take everywhere.” 

“I wear a belt everyday and for years I stuck with a smooth black and smooth brown style. But this summer I added a brown woven belt and it’s become my go to.”

“I believe that not enough guys take care of their skin. I’ve used daily moisturizer since I was a kid, but in the past year I’ve upgraded the items in my routine to also include: Face washExfoliating face wash (perfect for pre shave), Shaving CreamAftershaveEvening moisturizerFace maskSunscreen.”

“Every guy I know appreciates a new workout outfit, even if we haven’t been to the gym in months (or longer). This pair (shirt and shorts) is a great fit option for just about any guy, as the shirt isn’t skin tight and the shorts are the optimal length at 9 inches.”
