Welcome to my 2017 Holiday Video Gift Guide for Men!
I thought a video demo would be the best way to bring my favorite products to you in person. This gift guide is NOT sponsored- no one has paid me to recommend products. I did receive a few samples for review purposes, but many did not even make the cut. These are all products I would purchase/have purchased for friends/family. Happy gifting!
One of my favorite gifts to give this year! This subtle, portable, travel-friendly solid cologne won’t overpower your guy (or you). The tin makes on the go scent touch-ups easy, and I can honestly say I adore each version. My husband is very sensitive to smells and doesn’t often wear cologne but now wears this EVERY day. At $24 it is a steal, lasting 150-200 applications depending upon use.
Explorer- A blend of bergamot, jasmine, Japanese grapefruit and a hint of peppermint, producing a masculine, worldly scent.
Drifter- A lightly sweet blend of cardamom and mandarin overpowering the subtle sandalwood, clove and leather undertones.
Aviator- Unique blend of bergamot, neroli, tangerine and patchouli yield a lightly sweet, fresh, and complex finish.
Did you know guys buy new underwear only every 7 years on average? Mr.+Muse found that women are a major influence (muse) on their partner’s underwear purchases, hence the name Mr. and Muse. Update your gentleman’s stash with these incredibly soft and comfortable boxer briefs. There are two types- Sport Style, which is made from MicroModal, and Fly Style, which is a bamboo blend. Both have a seamless waistband and no itchy tags.
The best part? You can build a gift box with a sexy or sweet note….my fave?

Sneaker Cleaning Kit
My husband and I both have an extensive collection of sneakers. Since Athleisure tends to be our life on the weekends, these kicks get scuffed. This sneaker cleaning kit contains everything you need for a quick checkup before you leave the house or on the go!
Common Sense Skin
Does your guy sport some scruff? How about a full-on face of hair? Every face needs attention, and those with a beard are no exception. Common Sense Skin in Plainfield offers a Beard Facial. Choose between the Big Beard and the Deluxe Beard- both include an exfoliating treatment and facial massage.
Men’s Face Masks
Although these are unisex facial masks, Farmhouse Fresh makes scents that don’t deter men from slathering these on. With varieties like Guac Star and Peat Perfection, they won’t end up smelling like a flower garden. These masks are almost 100% natural, and all are paraben and sulfate free. Grab a sampler!
Mix Gift Box
My husband has to wear a suit every day to work, so socks and ties are basically the only ways he can mix it up. Happy Socks are incredibly high quality and have designs that range from trendy to whimsical, basic to bold.
Head to Toe Balm
Stocking stuffer must: rough hands, flyaways, chapped lips this balm takes care of it all. It is compact, won’t leak and it has a neutral smell.
Grand Crosscourt II Sneaker
Does your guy wear his New Balance to the bar? Want to keep him comfy but stylish? I love the look of the Cole Haan Grand Crosscourt II Sneaker. It comes in 10 styles- from cognac leather to holiday plaid, you are sure to find something that will spark his interest.
Tattoo Renewing Wipes
If your guy is inked, Tat Towels make a superb stocking stuffer. These non-greasy wipes instantly refresh your tattoo, moisturizing and making the colors more vibrant.
100% Waterproof Speaker
I purchased a Fugoo speaker a few years ago because my kids basically break everything. This is waterproof, snow-proof, sand-proof and we have drop-kicked it across the room without incident. They recently came out with the GO version, which is more compact and less expensive.
Men’s Square Watch
I am not a fan of big, blingy Rolex-style watches on men. Understated, elegant, timeless (no pun intended) are more my speed. This is an incredible value for a watch- on sale at Nordstrom right now! Comes in 4 colors.
Big Game Air
Trip to their favorite sporting event
Some of you might have a litttttle more money to spend on your significant others. My dream is to travel everywhere via private jet- no, I haven’t ever been on one but I can just imagine!!! Big Game Air just launched in Chicago and provides luxury game day travel. With packages for sporting events such as the Super Bowl, Kentucky Derby, or Masters Tournament, Big Game Air is revolutionizing the way people can be ballers for a day.
I suck at electronics. You would never know that I started my professional career hawking them at CDW….no wonder I lasted 6 months. I am a devout ABT shopper- they are the largest single-store retailer in the country for electronics and appliances and we have purchased every single piece of electronic equipment there in our home for the past 10 years. They have it all, and the experts to tell you about it…plus- Dylan’s Candy Bar. Here is the ABT Holiday Top 10 Gift Guide!
Thanks for watching!! Happy gifting!
