Vineyard Vines is one of our favorite brands for great clothing. Although known for their signature East Coast summery nautical vibes, you can find extraordinary winter apparel from them, as well. Looking for something particularly festive for your favorite guy? We love their iconic ties, available in a fun assortment of patterns. This Christmas, pick him up a Mistletoe Woven Kennedy Tie. These ties are beautifully done and will become a fun Christmas tradition to wear each holiday season. We love their uber-comfortable plaid flannel lounge pants for Christmas Eve and opening presents. For cold winter days, we adore their sweaters, like their Wool Snap Placket Shep Sweater, made of 100% Merino wool, stretchy and moisture wicking for ultimate comfort. We also love layering wardrobe must-haves like the Dorset Quilted Vest. This is a very handsome and versatile vest that he will love to wear during the cooler months of the year. No matter what you choose from Vineyard Vines, he is sure to fall in love with their high quality and comfortable clothes.
Give him the gift of great sound for the gym, conference calls, or enjoying his favorite hobbies by gifting him a pair of JBL Wireless Harman Live 300 TWS. These truly wireless bluetooth earbuds have incredible sound quality and a great app that allows you to customize your sound experience, optimizing the earbuds capability. These are a very affordable option with an expensive sound that sit comfortably in your ears, regardless of the activity you are using them for.
Whether it is clothing for everyday wear, exercise or lounging, 32 Degrees is a great store to have on your radar this holiday season. Check out this cotton terry pullover crew and jogger set, a must-have for every guy. Ultimate comfort that can easily be worn with other 32 Degrees products, like the lightweight recycled poly-filled packable vest, which is the perfect vest to take with you wherever you go. You can actually stuff it in a bag that comes with it so it doesn’t take up a lot of space, and then when you need it, pull it out and it is the perfect weight for some added warmth. Speaking of packable, I love that they have an entire line of packable winter jackets. These are comparable to some very expensive brands that are out there, for sure. They are available in a variety of fills and colors, with or without hoods and they are the perfect winter jackets to have. You can take them anywhere and pull them out of their stuff sacks when needed. Stash them in a briefcase or backpack or keep them in your car so you are always prepared for any weather you may face.
The most beloved piece from 32 Degrees is their men’s tech fleece full zip hoodie. This hoodie looks and feels amazing. You will want to pick up one in every color as it is simply the best hoodie ever. 32 Degrees has very high quality clothing for incredible prices. You can find everything here to set you up for base layers and outdoor wear. Be sure to check them out, they are a favorite of mine!
When it’s time to go out and exercise, I absolutely adore base layers from Smartwool. Available in various patterns for both men and women, they have you covered from the cold when it’s necessary to be outside. Their Merino 250 base layer hoodie is the perfect weight. The 100% wool fabric feels amazingly soft and comfortable and allows you to stay toasty, while moving sweat away from your body. It’s also a plus that it is colored with eco-concious plant-based dyes. This is something that everyone can use and love!
For the guy that loves to go to the gym, we love new products from BlenderBottle! The Vooray x BlenderBottle Gym Bag is such a great design, with compartments for everything. Separate zippable shoe compartment, place for your cell phone, roomy main area for your clothes, and of course, the perfect sized pocket for your favorite BlenderBottle for pre or post workout drinks. It’s sleek profile and blast of inner color makes it the perfect gym bag. Speaking of your favorite BlenderBottle, you will want to see all the great varieties of bottles now available. There is a different style for everyone–guys, gals, teens, you name it! I love the Marvel Hero Elite Series Stainless Steel shakers, perfect for the one that is partial to a particular super hero. The Captain America stainless shaker is off the charts! I also love the limited edition Strada Insulated Stainless Steel in the USA Red. Show your love of the USA and keep your drinks cold 24 hours a day!
Give him some great new colognes this Christmas for an absolute steal. Such a great price, in fact, that you can pick up several varieties. FragranceNet is the perfect place to find every spectacular fragrance you could ever want! Buy full sized bottles like Ralph Lauren Red Extreme, gift sets like Ralph Lauren Variety 4 Piece Mini, which has not one, but four, varieties of favorite Ralph Lauren eau de toilettes like Polo, or the Calvin Klein Variety loaded with five different popular scents. You can also load up on miniature sizes of colognes for stockings, too. We love the Gucci Guilty Eau Pour Homme! You can find so many different well loved brands here, be sure to check them out!
Shoes are super important. We spend so much time in them, you want them to be very comfortable, yet really nice looking, too. Some versatility is great. Being able to wear them in nicer settings, to work, and out is always a plus. When you can get a pair of shoes that allows for all of that to happen at once, you clearly have a pair of Rothy’s on your feet. Available in a wide array of colors and patterns, these shoes can be worn with or without socks, year round. They look and feel fantastic. I highly recommend gifting your favorite guy a pair of Rothy’s RS01 Sneakers this holiday season. My favorite guy loves them in the Olive and Hudson colors. They can be worn with very casual attire, yet they are very well tailored. Wearing them upgrades your look instantly. They also have great options in loafers and boots!
Would you guess they are good for the environment, too? That’s right, the signature material used in Rothy’s incredible shoes is made up of used water bottles! Unbelievable! The other unbelievable thing about these shoes is that when they get dirty, you can toss them in the washing machine and have them come out looking and smelling brand new! Whether you want a pair of shoes for everyday wear or for dressier occasions, there is something for everyone.
Birkenstocks were all the rage when I was in high school. Super comfortable sandals were the hot item everyone had to have. Fast forward 25 years (wow–time flies!) and nothing has changed. Except that truly they have. Birkenstocks are still so hip to own, but the styles have been enhanced. So many new options beyond the classic sandal design exist now and they are all spectacular. I love the clogs that can be worn all year long and the slippers, like the Zermatt Shearling, made of a smooth wool felt and lined with lush shearling in the footbed, that you can’t wait to slip your feet into at the end of the day. And for the ultimate gift for someone who is on their feet a lot, I highly recommend the Zermatt Premium Shearling. Once he puts these on his feet, he’ll never want to take them off. Velvety soft suede leather, luxurious shearling lining in the footbed and around the ankle, plus the ultra comfortable and supportive sole that can be worn both indoors and out. That is the gift that keeps on giving!
The gift of feeling healthy is certainly the gift that keeps on giving. I love Vous Vitamin just for that reason. This is the coolest service.

No worries, take the test and have a trial sent your way. You will love this!
For the guy that likes techy gadgets, let me introduce you to Glowstone. If you want to start the day with a cup of something hot but find yourself not able to really immediately sit and enjoy it, the Glowstone Smart mug is a must have! This fine bone china self heating mug keeps your drink hot and tasting great far longer than you’d think would be possible (it will continually heat it for an hour!). In fact, it keeps it at an optimal 145 degrees fahrenheit! If you see it glowing, you know it’s working. The wireless charger on it means that you can even wash it safely in the dishwasher and the battery life is designed to have 4000-6000 charges.
But, self-heating mugs are not all this company has, they boast having some ultra versatile rechargeable flashlights that should definitely be on your wishlist this year. Water proof, wearable, wireless, and virtually indestructable, this LED flashlight can last for 50 hours before needing to be recharged again. When it is time to recharge it, simply use the same charger that works with the Smart mug!
For beautifully crafted gifts made in the USA, be sure to check out Etsy shop HighBarJ. The Herman Oaks Harness Leather belt is absolutely stunning! This is an incredibly made leather belt that will last a lifetime and more. I love the craftsmanship of the belt, made from very thick old world harness leather. This belt won’t crack and fall apart. It’s a very masculine gift that he will love for a long time to come. Be sure to visit his store for custom gifts that every member of the family will enjoy, whether it be holsters, seriously cool light sabres, or gorgeous purses. This is a favorite store you won’t want to miss!

Throw on a pair of the Cozy Vibe Lows from Sanuk and your feet will thank you! These sweet (they are made from bio-based sugar cane EVO foam) are eco-friendly, ultra soft and have a collapsible heel. You can wear them indoors or out. I love the moisture-wicking materials that keep your feet comfortable when they get really toasty. They are so comfortable and lightweight you won’t want to take them off!
