Mens Stocking Stuffers

One week until Christmas...

Is this real life?  It is literally one week until Christmas y'all!!! Where on earth has the time gone?  With that being said, I've decided to post an easy guide of potential stocking stuffers for the man in your life. Most everything will be linked throughout the post.

1.  Dress Socks

This year I got my guy two pairs of dress socks to wear with his nicer shoes.  Although I may have caved and already given him one pair...oops! Insert the monkey covering its eyes emoji. (I wasn't sure if he'd like the pattern or not)  I think fun dress socks make an outfit more exciting for a man.  Who wants bland socks for their guy? (NOT ME!) Below are the two pairs I purchased, although the argyle pattern I chose is out of stock.

2.  A gift card 

As I said in my girls gift guide,  who doesn't love a gift card to their favorite place?  They will go there regardless, so why not treat em for a couple of trips.  This year and last year, I got Jake a Chickfila gift card because he is OBSESSED.  Like on an unhealthy level lol.  I bet he goes to Chickfila at least two times a week.  Thus, the best gift card for him.  However, another option for your man could be a Darden gift card, because they have 6 restaurants represented on them that you can choose from.  These can easily be purchased at Walgreens, CVS, Walmart or the actual restaurant.

3.  Gum

I think this one speaks for itself.  Most everyone loves to chew gum, whether it's the fixation, flavor, or because they have bad breath.  Each year I put this in the stocking because it's useful and practical, and lets be honest, if I'm kissing my man, I want him to have nice smelling breath!  I usually get the three pack of orbit.  SO easy to find at any drugstore or connivence store.

4.  Cologne

While this is a pricier option for a stocking stuffer, I definitely think it's worth it.  A benefit to you and your man.  He feels good because he has a nice scent and you get the pleasure of 
a. picking out something you want him to smell like, and 
b. enjoying the scent when you're with him.  
A win win y'all!  A few of my favorites are Ralph Lauren: Polo Double Black, Giorgio Armani: Acqua Di Gio and Jean Paul Gaultier: Le Male (I call this the naked man because of the packaging)  All of these smell amazing to me personally and all have different retail prices.  However, I don't think you could go wrong with either of these 3 options! 

I hope this helped y'all!  If you think none of these would suit your guy then here are a couple more ideas for you!
  1.  Build your own 6-pack at Harris Teeter or Total Wine if he's into beer!
  2. A beard trimmer.  I personally love some scruff but it needs to be maintained
  3. A pocket knife
  4. A pretty tie or bow tie if he works in an office environment
  5. Sunglasses (can't go wrong with oakleys or raybans)!
