This year, I enlisted the help of my boyfriend Ed to put together a holiday gift guide for men! I have been super excited to share this with you guys because A) I have NEVER had someone co-write a post on Lilly & Grant before and B) Ed’s style is very classic, so I think his picks will really appeal to guys at a wide age range. Here’s his take on the gift guide for him:
This messenger bag is incredibly versatile and I’ve been wanting it for quite a while. I wear either a suit or slacks/button-up every day so it keeps with being professional, and it’s going to be perfect when I’m not carrying my suede bag.
So this stuff is the elixir of the gods for your face. I bought it for myself because I have pretty dry skin in the winter and it fixed it completely. Jenna and I both use it now, and we’re big fans.
I’m not really a sweater kind of guy, mostly because I’m hot even when it’s snowing and I find them super itchy, but this cardigan is pretty wonderful. It looks great and it doesn’t feel like I’m in a sweat lodge with mosquitos when I wear it.
Kind of weird to have a comb on your wish list, I know. Trust me on this though. There are a ton of scientific reasons why combs made of horns are great for your hair, but the cool factor is astronomical.
We just got an Echo a couple of weeks ago and now neither of us can live without it. It’s a great price and makes life so much nicer by having the ability to control everything with your voice (and automation). We have a few other linked devices like fireTV, lightbulbs, etc. and now we’re in 3017.
Every guy should have a nice PJ set that isn’t a pair of basketball shorts from high school and a t-shirt that’s more hole than shirt. These do the job with an added bonus of making me feel a little Don Draper-y.
I’ve got a real love affair with these sunglasses and I have them in a few colors. They’re classic, timeless, and always look sharp. My latest pairis here and once again, Don Draper-esque.
Finally, these boots had to make the list because they’re on my feet more often than not. They are no doubt the best shoes I’ve ever owned and I can wear them with everything.
One of my favorite things about the holidays is giving friends and family gifts that they will enjoy for years to come. Whether there’s someone in your life that loves to cozy up with a good book and a cup of tea, or you’re looking for a little something for yourself, this guide is for all things cozy at all price points!
Personally, one of my favorite go-to gifts is a soft cardigan that can be worn at home or on a plane. Any gift that’s versatile enough to be used at home or during travel is amazing!
I have heard amazing things about this silk pillowcase. All of the reviews say that it’s perfect for skin and hair. Plus, it looks super luxe! Definitely a splurge-worthy gift.
If you’re looking for gifts under $50, I bought these slippers for myself a few weeks ago and put them on every night when I come home from work. They feel like little clouds on your feet! The design on this travel mug is so pretty and I love the gold detail. This fur pom beanie is the perfect accessory for any cold-weather outfit and comes in 4 colors!
Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Christmas is almost here and I’m determined to finish gift shopping THIS week! I’m sharing my Gift Guide featuring my picks under $50 – If you’re like me, with multiple friends and family members to shop for, these gift guides are life savers! These would make perfect stocking stuffers too.
A few of my favorites include this wool/cashmere blend scarf – it’s one of those accessories that compliment every type of wardrobe. These gummy bears are made with Dom Pérignon Champagne, how cool is that? This would be a perfect hostess gift! There’s also an option made with rosé, which I’m honestly thinking about buying for myself. I use this phone case and get so many compliments – the gold detail on the leaves look even prettier in person! I’m loving this option too. I recently ordered this book that would be perfect for anyone who’s cozy obsessed! It’s filed with recipes, DIY projects, and activities (organized by month) to bring cozy inspiration to the holiday season and every day of the year! Can you tell I’m excited about this book?! It will be the perfect coffee table addition too.
I hope you guys have an amazing week, stay tuned for more gift guides!
