5 Things You Should Buy For Your Guy This Christmas

This is a sponsored post.  I was compensated for this post with gift cards to spend at the Northwest Arkansas Mall.  The opinions and photos are my own and a representation of my personal experience on a recent shopping trip.

(So, if you are the man in my life....stop reading now!  I mean it...Santa is still watching and I'll take everything back!)

Let's be honest shopping for the guys can be so hard.  If they want something, they already got it for themselves. And if not, then really we just turn around and buy them what we want them to have.  They are so simple but why does buying them gifts always have to be so complicated?

Not this year, I have the perfect list of 5 things you need to buy for the men in your life.  And even better, it can all be found at your local mall!

1. Puffy and Plaid

This year, puffy/quilted vests are all the rage and with the incredible options for plaid you are sure to mix and match his perfect colors.  Whether is flannel, a dress shirt, cotton or a henley, he needs a couple options to piece together and mix and match.  Casual & comfy or pretty & profesh, this is THE MUST HAVE for this Christmas.  There will be many under the tree at our house!

2. Help him cheer on his Razorbacks (or favorite team)!

You just can't live in Northwest Arkansas and not cheer on those HOGS.  Whether it just finding the perfect combination of white and cardinal red.  Locating a coffee mug, dress shirt or tail gate gadgets, every guy needs something that makes him feel like a fan.  At the Northwest Arkansas Mall, you are set because the Razorback Shop is a one stop place.  But, don't be fooled, JC Penny had their own special section and the Houndstooth Co. has the perfect t-shirts for your college guy.  And, if you have a serious sports fanatic, the All American Classics shop has paintings, pictures and sports memorabilia for the guy who already has a drawer full of red shirts!

3. An excuse to use bluetooth

An Apple Watch was on my guys list and I told him he would have to call his other girlfriend to get that!  But seriously, they think of everything and all guys love techy treats.  From accessories for his bike to the GIANT home entertainment speaker, there were gadgets galore (at many stores)!

4. Something for date night

I mean you can't completely forget about yourself.  Its chilly in Northwest Arkansas and with all the fun things to do outside, he needs a coat to bundle up with.  Layered with those things mentioned above he will be stylin for sure.  And you won't complain about being the woman on his arm!

5. Make him feel like a man

You can almost smell the testosterone when you walk into the tool section.  Growing up, we always called the tool store "Dad's Toy Shop."  And I get it.  Men drool over tools and gadgets like we drool over shoes and purses.  Its something we may never understand but when our necklace breaks or we need a light bulb changed, we sure are glad he has them all around.  Now....if you can just figure out how to get him to use them....

BONUS: Stocking Stuffers

Stockings are my favorite.  And, every store has "that section."  Whether its the funny, or should I say pun-ny, guy only gifts, the retro games, the gadgets that seem to make sense but you would never have thought of or the very practical...any of it will work.  And, don't forget to look around while you are standing in line or waiting by the register.  If I've learned anything this year its that good things come in small packages!

Thanks to Cara, my new sis to be for the shopping, ideas and giggles!

Talya Tate Boerner said...

Great list and since I haven't done any shopping yet, this may be just what I need to get it in gear. Plaid is on his list and Razorback anything is always in style!

P.S. I live in Fayetteville.

Arrin Black said...

Love you ideas! I still need to get to the Razorback store for my guy. He loves anything with a hog on it. :) Merry Christmas Keisha!!!

Manly stocking stuffer's are still on my list for hubby! Not only that, but for Christmas his wishlist was full of stuff for our home. I adore this man for his thoughtfulness in being practical, but sometimes one deserves an impracticable gift!! So I am also on the hunt for a gift that lets him just be himself without having to share with anyone else (a.k.a. me!)

We live in Lowell :)

Paige Goodman Wolven said...

I still need stocking stuffers for my boyfriend! This would make them super fabulous!

Jen Mullen said...

I still need to get some Razorback gear for my hubby and my Dad. These are great ideas. We live in Lowell!

Neglected to mention that a bike is on the Mr's list and we live in Rogers.

Nothing's left, I finished up today! Hooray! But he could always use a new Bluetooth! Ha! I live in Rogers, AR! Woot!

Katie Leigh said...

This is a GREAT list! I finished up my Christmas shopping this morning with a few books but I know he would love an Apple Watch

Tanya Coffman said...

Thanks for the gift suggestions! Hubby is always on the road therefore I have no idea what to get him. So far I got him beef jerky but those plaid shirts I'm thinking he would love!

Oh goodness, my list is still very long! Hubby wants a new razorback cap, but I plan to add a few more goodies to that.
