I asked Matthew to help me by putting together a holiday gift guide for the guys in your life. It’s also my sneaky little way of seeing what he wants! Two birds, my friends! Here’s what he has to say about his picks:
SWEATERS are always a good go-to. They’re comfortable, warm, and can be worn to work when you don’t feel like ironing that shirt underneath! When your guy did remember to pick up his dry cleaning, he’ll be glad to throw on either of these button ups (X or Y). Button ups are the modern man’s uniform after all. Pair it with a good TIE like this, and you’ll impress the boss AND the Mrs. I love this JOGGER CHINO THING going on these days. Pants haven’t been this comfortable and stylish since 1984 when I was a baby. If it gets really cold and he needs some extra neck protection, give him this SCARF – it will do him good. Cologne and a NICE WATCH are two of the few essentials that can really make a guy feel spiffy, or at least help him be on time and smell a bit better. If your guy is still wearing flashy Lady Gaga sunnies with huge gold G’s on the sides, do him a solid and update his eye protection. When he’s ready for the great outdoors, you’ll want to hook him up with a DURABLE SWEATSHIRT, an excellent PACK/WEEKENDER BAG, a HIGH QUALITY HATCHET for wood chopping, and most importantly a way to safely drink that dirty stream water he found. Lastly, let the poor bloke wear a BEANIE every now and then. Beanies are awesome.
Welcome to M Loves M! My name is Mara and I created this lifestyle site in 2009 as a place to share my love of fashion, beauty, food and entertaining. I moved from Southern California to Idaho and love adventuring with my husband Matthew, our two children, and our dog Ginger. We're also pregnant with baby #3, due this autumn! I strive to create a site that’s relatable to women, while also being inspirational. I’m so glad you stopped by!
