I love Christmas and everything that comes with it. The only challenge I seem to run into each year, is finding the perfect gift for that special someone. My mom used to be the hardest person to buy for, but for the past couple of years, she has been creating a Dropbox and updating with ideas regularly – this makes things so much easier. Now the person most difficult to buy for is Steve. What does he need versus what does he want. Here are a few gift ideas for the special guy in your life!
Amazeballs $24.50 – Indigo
Two times the power of square drink stones, they will keep your drink colder for longer. Made from food safe stainless steel, filled with a specially formulated food-safe glycerin gel that freezes without diluting your drink. Freeze for four hours and keep your drink cool for up to 45 minutes.
Nike + Fuelband SE $99.99 – SportChek
This device is designed to track the intensity of workouts, counts steps, tell time, display your progress in real time, sync with your iOS or Android device, and it has Bluetooth. What a great way to track your activity – a great gift to go along with a New Year’s resolution.
The Nest Learning Thermostat $249.99 – Best Buy
This fancy gadget is a sleek and intelligent heating and cooling system. This handy gadget quickly learns your habits in approximately one week, programming itself based on your schedule and preferred temperature settings – glowing blue for air conditioning, red for heat, and black if it is off. It has Wi-Fi Connectivity which allows you to access it from your laptop, smartphone or tablet to change the temperature, view whether or not you are saving energy and more! While connected to Wi-Fi, it can also monitor the weather to understand how the temperature affects your energy use. It is a little pricey but it is designed to save you in energy costs in the long run.
Lambswool Mockneck Sweater in “Oatmeal heather” $69.95 – The Gap
I love this sweater. I had to include the photo of it on the model, because the photo of the sweater alone did not do it justice. It is 55% lambswool and 45% Nylon and is also available in a navy blue colour.
The North Face Etip Glove $45 – The North Face
These warm, four-way-stretch fleece gloves are perfect for the chilly temperatures. They will not only keep his hands warm, they also feature a silicone gripper palm pattern to provide superior grip, allowing him to swipe and use his touchscreen device without exposing his hands to the cold. I love this idea!
Hopefully these ideas help with the shopping for the guy(s) in your life. Only 17 shopping days left until Christmas!
