Gift Guide: For the Fellas
Growing up with two sisters and no brothers, I never really had to think about getting gifts for boys. Let me tell ya... It. Was. Glorious! Then the sistas went on and got married. And this pretty great guy decided he liked me enough to date me so now I've got THREE boys I have to buy Christmas gifts for! (Four if you count the padre, but over the years, gift-buying for him has become super easy) Well, not have to, get to. You see, I LOVE giving gifts, I just never had boys in the mix so I was in unchartered territory for quite a while. However, now that I'm about three years into it, I think I've finally gotten the "boy" gifts down. (At least for the men in my life, I have) In fact, I've even grown to enjoy shopping for those guys! I even started a secret Pinterest board so I can remember items I find throughout the year for birthdays, too. Below, I've put together a round-up of some of my favorite gifts for the boys this year:
**Disclaimer: All items have been "guy approved" by my boyfriend, Hobbs. He insisted on giving my guide a once-over before publication!
