Nikki M: My husband and I do “found gifts” for one another. The idea is to give a gift that is something you already have, most likely with no real monetary value. You include a letter explaining the significance. The first year we did this, I gave him a rock I painted on vacation when I was a little girl because he is my rock and I always dreamed of finding my Prince Charming, which he really is for me. Last year, I have him an old key to our first house together, which we bought shortly after getting married, and which saw our oldest child come home from the hospital. It’s nice to do something without expense.
Stumped on when to gift the men in your life for the upcoming holiday season? You’re not alone. If the guy you know has everything it just might be time for a gift upgrade. One of the best things about gifting for someone else is that they’ll typically never buy any of this stuff for themselves, so it’s a great way to sneak in what you really want them wearing or trying out to help ‘better’ themselves. Plus, according to a recent poll, men are more likely to spend more on you than you’re likely to spend on them so, well, game on! Don’t let him outspend you! Isn’t that what the holidays are all about after all?
Details: If he's the kind of guy who looks good in scarves, this is a gift he'll definitely love. The material is Viscose, a type of artificial rayon similar to silk. It feels as soft as cashmere, but it's significantly cheaper. The scarf offers good warmth in the winter, and it will keep his neck toasty warm. Though it's lightweight and thin, the fabric is surprisingly good at keeping body heat trapped close to the skin.
Celebrate another trip around the sun in style with creative birthday gifts for your husband. Throw him a brewery-themed bash and grab some personalized beer glasses as party favors for all his buds. You can play a beer tasting party game and even infuse the cake with a nice chocolate stout. If your hubby appreciates the finer things in life, monogram his name into a Five-Star Plush Robe. Keep the party more intimate with an at-home spa day where you give him a massage and relax in the hot tub together. Finding the perfect gift for your husband has never been so easy.
