Men’s Gift Guide 2016

It’s the week of gift guides here at C. Style! Things seem to be happening earlier and earlier this year, or I might just be really behind- ha! For this reason, I’m going to front load this week with gift guides on M/T/W, so keep checking back. That way we can order in plenty of time for Christmas! Whether you only have stocking stuffers left to buy for the men in your life or you haven’t shopped at all (like me), this gift guide has got you covered. I only picked the best of the best, and I give you all my reasoning behind why it would make the best gift! Because as your personal, very studious shopper, I don’t want you to waste your money. That’s why I take my gift guides very seriously (maybe a little too seriously- ha!).

Herschel Supply Co. Winlaw Backpack

Herschel Backpack

I have to admit, this is somewhat of a secret, selfish mission of mine. My husband carries this huge carryon around when we travel, and this backpack just seems like it would make more sense. Plus, it’s way more stylish, right?! Don’t you think maybe I’m saving his arm? So maybe this isn’t selfish after all- ha! This would be perfect for any guy, especially for travel, the gym, or if he’s really hip, work. Plus, Herschel Supply Co. is super hip!

S'well 'Silver Lining' Stainless Steel Water Bottle

S’well Water Bottle 

Have you ever seen a more perfect stocking stuffer? I think we all know how great S’well Water Bottles are; they keep your water cold for 24 hours or your coffee hot for 12 hours. Plus, they have a wide mouth that’s easy to put ice in, and they fit into standard car cup holders. Now they make the stainless steel one in different sizes! You can fit an entire wine bottle into the new 25 oz. size. Ha! Also, they have lots of different colors.

 

UGG® Scuff Slipper (Men)

UGG Slippers

This is one of those items that guys don’t really talk about wearing, but in the colder months, it becomes a necessity. I specifically like these slippers because they have an open back, which allows them to be taken on and off easily when his foot gets too warm. These seem like the most manly slippers on the market, and who doesnt like UGG?

GustBuster Classic 48-Inch Automatic Golf Umbrella

GustBuster Umbrella

What guy wouldn’t want a nice, manly umbrella? It sure does beat the colorful one he ends up grabbing of yours. It’s an umbrella all his own. My husband has one and he sure does look nice walking the kids to the bus stop in his suit.

Bushnell Tour V3 Rangefinders

Bushnell Tour V3 Rangefinders

Bushnell Rangefinder

I was recently at lunch with a few of my girlfriends, and we started discussing what we were getting our husbands for Christmas. My friend mentioned that her husband asked for a rangefinder for hunting, and I thought that was a great gift idea. My husband bought this one for himself for golfing one Christmas ago. So whether your husband likes to play golf like mine, or hunt like her’s, a rangefinder is a sure bet.

Daniel Buchler Peruvian Pima Cotton Robe

Daniel Buchler Robe

At the same lunch with my girlfriends, on of my friends mentioned she was trying to find a  nice robe for her husband. Then we all decided that robes are another one of those things men don’t talk about but all wear. Well, I searched high and low and really liked this one. It seems lightweight enough to be able to wear year round, and, to me, it looked manly and stylish.

Anker PowerCore 20100

Anker Battery Pack

The faster something charges my Kindle, my phone, or my kids iPad, the better! My husband uses his battery pack all the time, especially when we travel. It’s also perfect for when my son wants to charge his iPad, so he can sit on the couch and play while it’s charging. You don’t have to be tethered to a power outlet anymore! Plus, this battery pack has high speed charging! Maybe this is just a gift for everyone- ha! My husband has the older version of this one. Maybe he needs an upgrade. I personally want this girly one.

Powerbeats3 Wireless In-Ear Headphone - Black

Powerbeats Wireless Earphones 

Did you guys know that the new iPhone 7 doesn’t have a headphone jack? I know! So annoying, right?! So it looks like we will be needing wireless headphones more and more in the future. I have these wireless Beats headphones, and I abolustely love them. They have different ear attachments that you can change out depending on the shape of your ear, and they actually stay put because of the ear arm. But the best part is the excellent sound quality!

 

BEAM LABS Beam Smart Projector

Beam Labs Smart Projector

This projector would make the perfect gift for the sports enthusiast who loves to watch sports 24/7. This way, no matter where he is, he can turn any flat surface into his personal ESPN. This would be nice to use when we have friends over. We could even have a pool party and watch sports projected on our fence!

Peter Millar

Peter Millar Shirts here and here

If you’re thinking about buying the men in your life clothing items, like a shirt, for Christmas, look no further than Peter Millar. Of all the brands my husband and his friends purchase, this is by far the one that fits the majority best. It’s very good quality and has an updated look that is versatile for many occasions. Whether he’s going on the golf course, to church, wears it to work on casual Friday, or out for an evening dinner, these two styles of shirts work well. If your man is already a fan of Peter Millar, this is your chance to get a pattern that you would like for him!

Don’t forget about the “Best Casual Pants for Men” on the market! I know these would be a sure bet!

 

3 Sure Bet Gifts for Father’s Day

If you are like me, Father’s Day usually sneaks up on you, so you just end up giving your husband a sweet card and no gift. Maybe it’s just me… Ha! Well, this year I’m golden and you are, too! I have 3 sure bet gifts for your husband (as confirmed by my girlfriends and their husbands). These are tried and true items that are sure to please even the pickiest of fathers (like my husband- ha!).
Powerbeats Wireless

How about wireless, Bluetooth headphones?! GENIUS! Now he (we) can workout with his cellphone in his pocket or walk around his office while on the phone without having to hold his phone. They have approximately a 30 foot range, and I like that they go around the ear, so they won’t fall out. If your guy is really into sound quality, check out these Beats. If not, here is another less expensive option.
Screen Shot 2016-05-31 at 5.04.04 PMI think it goes without saying, but swimsuits (just like for women) are hard to find for guys. These are great, because they aren’t too tight, they aren’t too short, and they are high on style. Done!Screen Shot 2016-05-31 at 1.42.24 PM

I posted about Swims, aka water shoes, about two years ago, and my friend’s husbands that have them, love them! My husband loves them, too! He has a navy pair and a grey pair. They are perfect for the pool, beach, and boat. Move over flip flops and Sperry’s, there is a new fully submergible, high on style penny loafer in town!
