holiday gift guide: for him

If you've already caught yourself pondering "What should I get my boyfriend/fiance/husband/father/brother for Christmas?" you are not alone. I've see variations of this question floating around social media for weeks now, and I've even been asked what kind of gifts I buy Jason. My answer to both of those questions is simple: Things he likes!

More than anything I try to make mental notes of things he mentions that he would like to have, or that he needs, in the months leading into the holidays. If I find myself coming up short, I ask him to give me a few ideas, or I creep his wish lists on various sites. (I highly suggest creating wish lists for any and every one.) It's so much more fun to gift people things you know they want.

Now, if you're clueless on what to buy any of the men in your life, if you're coming up short on ideas, or maybe you just want a fresh perspective, more possibilities I have something to share - my Holiday Gift Guide for Him! I am sharing a few variations of things Jason is getting, a few things he's noted as being good gift options, and more in hopes that it will help someone out with this holiday madness. Enjoy!
