Holiday Gift Guide 2017 | Gifts for Guys

Hello everyone! Welcome back to my Holiday Gift Guide series! Last week I posted my Gift Guide for Moms, which I hope you all enjoyed.

I tried to incorporate gifts for all men of varying interests. Of course, I am tainted by my own husband and his interests so I have included a lot of things that I think Daniel would like. For more inspiration check out last years Gift Guide for Dads.

I would love to hear your thoughts and hear about the gifts you are planning on giving your guys! Be sure to comment down below =)

Gift Guide for Men

1. Portable Wireless Speaker

The JBL portable Bluetooth speaker connects to up to three smartphones or tablets and has a battery life of 10 hours! We got one of these speakers for my father-in-law for his birthday and the sound is incredible!

2. Electric Shaver

The Braun Series 9 electric shaver is the best shaver on the market! It has two specialized trimmers and has been proven to be effective on even the scruffiest beards!

3. Ugly Christmas Sweater with smartphone Flame

This Christmas Sweater allows you to attach your smartphone inside the sweater and a real fire brings the sweater to life! Not to mention it is a great conversation starter and is sure to be a hit at every Christmas Party!

4. Mens Designer Briefcase

This is on my list for Daniel this year as he needs a nice bag to take to work with him (instead of just toting around his laptop around along with all of his chargers, phone, wallet, etc!) I think this case from Ted Baker looks modern and stylish without being too stuffy!

5. NFL Team Toaster

The ultimate gift for the ultimate NFL fan! This toaster toasts the symbol of any NFL right on your piece of toast!

6. Leatherman Multitool

Daniel has one of these and he is obsessed with it. He always has it in his pocket and he uses it for pretty much everything. Not only is it a pocket knife but it has 21 other tools including 2 screwdrivers, pliers, wire cutters, a metal file and so much more. It is the ultimate tool for any handyman!

7. Fun Socks

I get Daniel socks for every occasion! Chrismas, Fathers Day, His Birthday, he always gets socks and he loves it! I think no Chrismas is complete without the gift of socks!

8. Bluetooth Headphones

These noise-isolating headphones from Wearhous connect to any smartphone for great clear sound. I know Daniel will love these as he sometimes needs to concentrate on his work without hearing all of the noise from me and Fé around the house!

9. Master Bluetooth Padlock

This padlock is so cool! You can use an app on your smartphone to unlock this padlock! You can even add others to the lock temporarily so they can open it as well! No there is no need to remember a code or carry around a key!

10. Stanley 210-Piece Tool Set

No home is complete without a great tool set! This toolkit from Stanley has every piece you would ever need for fixing things around the house or DIY!

11. Masterbuilt Digital Electric Smoker

Every avid Barbequer will love this 30″ Electric smoker. Perfect for the seasoned pro or a smoking beginner. Guaranteed to have great results every time!

12. Cryptocurrency Gifts

Bitcoin T-shirt

If your guy is into anything related to cryptocurrencies or bitcoin get him one of these awesome Tshirts from a new women-owned webshop called

Holiday Gift Guide 2017 | Gifts for Her

Hello Everyone! The Holidays are just around the corner and I could not be more excited!! e are spending Christmas in The Netherlands with Daniels family before we move back to California in January! It will be Fé’s second Christmas but she will actually be able to enjoy and participate in Christmas a little bit more this year than last year. Last year I was so stressed out about having a newborn I hardly had time to enjoy the holiday season. But I am making up for it this year as I have been in the Chrismas spirit since the beginning of November!

I think that it is never too early to get your Christmas shopping done (ps. it cuts down on lots of stress!) so without further adieus, here is this year’s gift guide for busy moms!

Ps. Check out my gift guides from last year!

1. Embroidered Jewellery

There is nothing more special and meaningful than jewelry embroidered with messages from your loved ones. Monica Vinader has a collection of STUNNING fine jewelry with complimentary engraving. I am absolutely OBSESSED with her signature bangle, which is on my Christmas list this year!

2. Polaroid Camera

 Fujifilm Polaroid Camera is a great gift for all those mamas who love having photo print-outs but have no time to get photos printed. It is small enough to pop in a diaper bag and so cute you will want to take it out and snap pics everywhere you go!

3. Stylish Diaper Bag

I am absolutely OBSESSED with my Petunia Pickle Bottom Diaper Bag (check out what is in my diaper bag here). Petunia Pickle Bottom bags are not only stylish but oh so practical. Any mom would love toting around one of these super cute bags!

4. Echo hands-free speaker 

Turn your home into a smart home with Amazon’s Alexa technology. The Amazon Echo is a ‘smart home hub’ that allows you to play music, ask questions, make calls, provide information, news, sports scores, weather, and more by just asking “Alexa!”

4. Luxurious bathrobe

Every mom deserves a luxurious bathrobe. This Ralph Lauren bathrobe will keep her warm and cozy all winter long!

5. Christmas Candle

We all want our house to smell like a cozy winter wonderland, but with a group of little ones running around, that may not be possible. Bring your home one step closer to that wonderland with this Woodwick Christmas Classic Candle!

6. Standing Mixer

For the mom who loves to cook, get her a KitchenAid Standing Mixer! These mixers make the perfect addition to any home. With tons of different attachments, the mixer allows you to make anything from pasta and bread to ice cream! The KitchenAid is also known to be the most durable and last for years and years.

7. Slippers

Comfy slippers are a favorite of mine. As a stay at home mom who spends a lot of time at home, my slippers get a ton of daily use. Any mom will definitely appreciate nice quality durable slippers such as these Ugg Scuffette II slippers. Not only are they warm, they are great quality, super stylish, comfy!

8. Essential Oil Diffuser

My mom bought me an essential oil diffuser a few months ago and absolutely LOVE it! It is a great natural way to freshen up your home and essential oils have so many different benefits. Diffusing essential oils can help with relaxation, sleep, boost your mood, help with colds and other illnesses, ward off insects, improve cognitive function, and so much more! There are endless amounts of oil combinations that provide different benefits and you can have so much fun experimenting with different recipes!

This oil diffuser is not only sleek and beautiful but has a number of different settings that make it the perfect addition to any home!

9. Clarisonic Mia 2 Cleansing Brush

Any beauty or skincare addict will love to pamper herself the new Mia 2 from Clarisonic. It is a facial cleansing brush recommended by dermatologists that gets your skin 6x cleaner than washing your face manually! As soon as I started using mine (which I have had for years!) my skin was noticeably softer, smoother, and more clear!

10. iRobot Roomba 980 Vacuum robot

Keep your home clean without lifting a finger? That sounds like a dream! With the Roomba 980 Vacum Robot, you can have a perpetually clean home without ever having to vacuum yourself. The Roomba features advanced dirt detection technology so it will never miss a spot. IT is also able to go on multiple surfaces, has visual navigation, and can even be used with Amazon Alexa or controlled from your phone using their iRobot app!
