Gifts can be HARD – trust me I get it! But Ladies, the more effort you put into them the more impactful they can be (key word EFFORT, does not have to mean $$$). Having an unlimited budget helps make gift buying easier but it is NOT a requirement to show the man/men (don’t forget Dads, Granddads and Brothers like to feel special too 🙂 ) in your life that you put in the extra effort to make them feel loved, cared for and cherished!
I absolutely LOVE giving gifts that leave a lasting impression so I thought I would share my TOP 5 gift ideas for Christmas 2021 with YOU!
#1 – Homemade BACON Whiskey (Cost: $) – yes you read that right! Take his FAVORITE whiskey and ADD BACON! I’ll included my tried and true recipe below! I have used this for Christmas gifts, Birthday presents, at themed parties – men LOVE IT! P.S. BEST bacon in the world to use for this is: Benton’s out of Nashville. Once you try this bacon you won’t go back to anything else! https://shop.bentonscountryham.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=hscb
#2 – ANYTHING Yeti with their NAME on it! (Cost: $$) Customizing a gift is EVERYTHING! I am NOT a believer of giving plain gifts that I just picked up at a store. I love having yetis customized with names or special artwork for the occasion. My go to’s with Yeti are their:
A. 20 oz Tumblers with Magslider Lid – pick their favorite color and have it delivered to your engraver and pick up or have them ship back to you when ready! https://www.yeti.com/en_US/drinkware/tumblers/20oz/21070060018.html#pos=4
B. Panga 28L BackPack with their name lasered on it just above the yeti logo! https://www.yeti.com/en_US/bags/backpacks/panga/28l/26010000003.html
I have an AMAZING engraver who will help you with custom design if needed and ship! Will include contact below 🙂
#3 – Sauvage by Dior (Cost: $$) – this cologne has stood the TEST of time and MANY women for that matter lol The name alone will fire you up, he’ll feel like a beast and you’ll melt whenever he comes around! The scent is Woody, Earthy with notes of Bergamont, Pepper and Amberwood – yummy! You can order online or pick up at most mall locations! To customize have their name etched into the glass and include a sexy little note that puts you on his Naughty List 😉 ***NOTE – I never recommend cologne for men in your life besides your significant other as it is such a personal gift. UNLESS of course it’s for teenagers who need the help and then I like to use more young fun (less expensive because for some reason teenagers never understand 2 to 3 spritzes is ENOUGH lol) scents as stocking suffers.
#4 – The ULTIMATE Cocktail Smoking Box (Cost: $$$) – If you want to take your homemade Bacon Wiskey to the NEXT level and your guy likes to play Mixologist when it comes to ya’lls nightcaps this is sure to be a winner! You can even have his name, logo, a picture etched into the glass to make it customized (my engravers contact will be posted at the end of this blog)! TIP it also makes AMAZING smoked butter for your rolls 😉
#5 – If you want to break the bank and spoil your man rotten nothing says class like a pair of Louboutins! (Cost: $$$$) YES you read that right, Louboutin is for MEN too! I will never forget the first pair I bought my Hubby – he balked at it and himhawed around about how he didn’t need them, and they were “too flashy” until he wore them out and EVERY person we met RAVED about how AWESOME they looked (I’m talking men and women alike!) Needless to say, he doesn’t question my shoe game now 😉 Here are some of my favs!
A. Killa House Shoes – http://us.christianlouboutin.com/us_en/shop/men/navy-coolito-flat-2.html
B. The PERFECT “I’m a BadAss” Casual Shoes: http://us.christianlouboutin.com/us_en/shop/men/louis-orlato-7.html
C. And for Date Night – these can’t be beat! http://us.christianlouboutin.com/us_en/shop/men/dandelion-spikes-flat-veau-velours-gg-veau-velours-1.html
Hopefully these ideas were helpful and give you ladies a little extra bounce in your step knowing that you are SMASHING the gift giving game this year!
