Gift Guide: For The Guys! (and a giveaway!)

Is it just me or are guys the hardest to buy for? Whether its my dad, brother or husband, I really have to think about a gift that they will actually like, use or wear. I honestly think I've rounded up some great ideas this year - all of these gifts are either on my list or something we own and love! Take a peek and be sure to make it to the end of this post for a huge giveaway!

1. Knife
The one thing Justin cared about when we were registering for our wedding was the whole knife situation - which set, which block, which specialty knives - I honestly had no idea he cared but he was into it. Fast forward five years and guess what was lost in our last move? Yep, one single box that contained our knife block and cereal bowls. We'll be slowly replacing our knives and I'm loving this one as our first replacement.

Justin is always talking about how there is no guy version of leggings - well buddy, meet the jogger pant. Soft, somewhat put together with a half zip and off we go to donuts in the morning. 

My guy isn't bearded but I know a lot of you are coming off of a no-shave November and your men could use some grooming. This beard comb feels super luxe (for a manly man, of course) and the beard oil is full of five star reviews. 

Ok, I found these the other day on Etsy and I am so disappointed they don't currently make a Clemson one! I think this is just such a unique gift for a college sports loving guy - and the aesthetic is really clean, which is hard to find in college memorabilia (trust me). This is an overhead shot of the Duke basketball area and most major college basketball programs are represented. 

I talked about this little baby on my Insta stories the other day but if you have a wine lover in your life, this is the gift for them. Justin was given this version from my parents a few years ago and he loves any excuse to use it. The science behind it is really cool and it allows you to pour a glass of wine without actually uncorking the bottle. Seriously, go check it out, we love ours. 

Work or play, I honestly love Justin in a blue check button down. I think I give him one every Christmas, sorry not sorry.

Perfect for chilling any liquor drink to the correct temp (not just whiskey!), these are perfect stocking stuffers (we own two sets!).

Ok, does anyone else get asked to hold random things for your husband in your purse? Like my purse doesn't weigh enough toting all of the things our offspring require...Anyway! I'm thinking this phone case may be the answer - it's leather, can be monogrammed and holds the important cards and ID's all in one spot. Bonus: it's under $25! 

I've had my eye on these gorgeous handcrafted, magnetic bottle openers for a while because I follow the makers on Instagram - they make each piece as a family and I think their woodworking is stunning. I honestly wouldn't mind displaying this bottle opener in my home but it's perfect for a man cave! 

Just a cute little stocking stuffer for $5, these vintage style hotel room key chains come in a ton of different collegiate colors (especially southern schools). 

Justin is constantly unraveling cords, chargers and headphone wires from his backpack when we are traveling and it drives me nuts when we're squished together in little airplane seats. Problem. Solved. 

Perfect for the bedside table, which in our house, never seems to look like anything but a catch all spot! 

Structured, neutral, comfortable and durable. These will be under the tree this year!
