welcome to the space between



Only two full weeks til Christmas and I’m in a bit of a panic over here! Let’s be real - our guys are impossible to shop for any day of the year but with a hubby whose birthday falls just before the holiday (hi boo, happy birthday today!) it can be so hard to find gifts he’ll actually love for both occasions. While scouring the internet for the perfect something(s) I actually found quite a few solid ideas and thought I’d share them with you guys!

Check out my Top 10 picks for the hard-to-buy-for dudes in your life - bonus that everything on this list should arrive by 12/24! Follow the links below to grab ‘em.


// 1. YETI Sidekick Dry Bag -- $49 Perfect for the outdoorsy type - this bag will keep his phone, keys, wallet, etc. totally dry and secure during all of his adventures.

// 2. Patagonia Better Sweater Quarter Zip Pullover -- $99 Spendy little shell but the reviews are proof it’s worth the splurge. This super cozy bulk-free pullover with a soft fleece interior will keep him nice and warm this winter - and lookin’ cute, too!

// 3. Ember Temperature Control Ceramic Mug -- $79 Okay, this is SO cool I might need one for myself. The mug is controlled by an app on your phone and, when fully charged, keeps your coffee at the perfect temp for about an hour. Or all day long with the charging coaster! What?!

// 4. Google Home Base -- $40 We love our Google home and use it every day to have kitchen dance parties - if you don’t already have one, grab one here (20% off right now!) and you won’t be disappointed. This interchangeable base allows you to customize the look of your Google Home and I just love this copper color!

// 5. Picnic at Ascot Golf Trunk Organizer -- $46 This random find is pretty genius if you ask me. No more messy golf shoes and loose balls/tees rolling around in the back of his car. Perfect little compartment to keep his trunk clutter free - also a plus for when you use the car to go shopping and need all the trunk space you can get LOL

// 6. Enso Ultralite Silicone Ring -- $19 If your guy is as picky as mine when it comes to wearing “accessories”, he’ll probably get a kick out of these silicone rings which are way more comfortable to wear either to the gym, to work, on a hike, or even on the daily.

// 7. Bose Noise-Masking SleepBuds -- $259 Go ahead and file these under things I also need for myself. These sleepbuds block out snoring, traffic, your dog licking his feet, or whatever else keeps him up at night. (but you don’t snore so that couldn’t possibly be it…) Instead of music, they deliver soothing sounds to help him fall asleep and stay asleep. Sounds like something I need for my mid-Sunday naps!

// 8. Corkcicle Whiskey Wedge (Double Old-Fashioned Glass + Silicone Ice Form) -- $17 For the perfectly chilled, not quickly watered down spirit. Simply freeze water in the glass with the silicone form inserted and ice freezes in the shape of a wedge on one side of the glass. Snag a pair of these for him to share a drink with a buddy (or you!) after a long day.

// 9. Herschel Supply Co. Chapter Travel Kit -- $30 Kyle actually has this and it’s the perfect size for all his toiletries if/when we travel. It’s made from durable canvas and even has a waterproof zipper.

// 10. Herschel Supply Co. Novel Duffle Bag -- $85 Another thing I’ve bought for Kyle recently. I love the size of this duffel - it seriously fits a ton. Not to mention it’s got a sweet hidden compartment on the side that comfortably fits a pair of men’s shoes.

Happy Gifting!
