I feel like the guys in my life are ALWAYS the hardest to shop for…why can’t they make it easier?! I mean, women are easy right?? A good pair of shoes or something sparkly and we are happy! Ha! I’ve rounded up some of Matt’s favorites – and a few extras that he may or may not be getting for Christmas this year. So Ladies and Gents, sit back on your couch, relax and get that Christmas shopping done early online!
Muskox Flannel Shirt: Flannel and holidays go hand in hand. The Muskox Grand Flannel comes in several color options, is heavy weight, soft, and super warm. Great for layering and hiking in the outdoors and transitions perfectly for a casual day at the office or dinner with friends. The perfect shirt for the adventurous man in your life.
Skif Knife: Skif Knives make great gifts for the outdoorsmen! Matt carries a Skif Knife with him everyday. There are many options to choose from, making it easy to stock up on several for stocking stuffers. These are great for the guy that has everything – no one ever has too many knives!
Armani Code: A good smelling man is the gift that everyone will thank you for. Armani Code is seriously the best smelling cologne – Matt’s worn it for years and I’m obsessed. Smells of citrus and woods, it’s perfect for the love in your life. Ladies, you can thank me later! 🙂
Overnight Bag: Travel in style! Whether he travels often or not, a leather weekender is a great go-to overnight bag. The genuine quality and sleek look of this bag are well worth the purchase. This duffle is perfect in size and can be used as an airplane carry-on bag too!
Rugged Waterproof Boot: These boots were made for all weather in mind. Rugged and 100% leather, these Rockport Rugged Bucks boots have a suede-like waterproof material keeping the moisture out. The great thing about these is that they can easily be worn as a casual everyday shoe or a boot for an active, adventure seeker! Stylish, comfortable and practical all in one.
Muskox Mountain Henley: This thermal knit shirt is simple, soft, and stylish. The Mountain Henley pullover by Muskox is great for layering under the Muskox Grand Flannel or wearing alone. I love finding shirts that Matt doesn’t feel like he’s dressed up in – but also look nice for a casual night out, a family function or even church…because let’s be honest, this is about as dressed up as Matt gets! Definitely replacing some of his decade old tshirts with these!
Muskox Canyon Quarter Zip: Keeping with the Muskox trend here, I am loving the look of this Canyon Quarter Zip. The best features of this pullover are the front pocket zipper and thumbholes. Athletic and practical!
Ariat Boots: Every man needs a good pair of boots. Matt’s favorite boots are the Plano Western Boot by Ariat. Ariats are notoriously comfortable and and hold up so well. Whether it’s his first pair
of boots or his fifth pair, he will love the comfort, support, and compliments.
Amazon Alexa Show: This is a great gift for the man in your life, but what I really love is how awesome it is for the whole family. We have one in our kitchen and LOVE IT. From music playing when we are cooking, to easily being able to ask “Alexa, what’s the weather like today?” as we are rushing to get kids ready for school! All the times you need to look up something on your phone while in the middle of cooking with stuff on your hands? Alexa saves the day! It’s perfect for tech lovers who want to convert their whole home to a smart home and user friendly enough for those not so tech savvy.
10 & 11. Garmin Fenix 5S or Forerunner 235: One of the #1 questions I get is “what running watch do you use?” Well, this is it! I have a Garmin Fenix5S and LOVE IT! The Fenix is a multi-sport watch designed to easily track running, swimming and biking stats. I got this watch a couple years ago when I attempted the whole multi-sport thing (which ended up not really being my jam). I love the look of this watch, but it is a little over kill (and pricey) if you are just looking for a running watch. If you’re looking for something more simple (and afforable) check out the Garmin Forerunner 235. I used this one for years and loved it too!
Asics Gel Kayano: RUNNING SHOES! These are by far my favorite distance running shoes I’ve owned. I’m on my 3rd pair of the same shoe because they are that good! They’re light and breathable, but provide great support and cushion for when you are really putting in the miles and pounding the pavement.
Adidas ¼ zip: Let’s be honest, this brand never disappoints. The Adidas Quarter Zip Top is such great quality. This is the perfect pullover top for any outdoor activity, but those early morning, cold runs really call for it!
Portable Charger: For the guy that’s always on the go, a portable phone charger is the perfect stocking stuffer! Matt and I use these all the time when we travel (which means getting a lot of work done from our phones) and don’t have access to a charger throughout the day!
With one month left until Christmas, I hope this little guide helping in finding the perfect gift and calming some of the Christmas craziness! Wishing everyone a great week!!
