What I Bought The Boy: Gift Ideas For Your Guy


The one (mini) mistake that J and I made (without realizing) was putting our wedding in late October. I was obsessed with being married in October and wouldn't consider another month…my bad. While it was the perfect time of year to be married, we neglected to think about the fact that my birthday was two weeks later (Nov 7) and then Jeremy's 4 days later on the 11th. Couple the anniversary and birthdays with all of the holiday celebrations and we have set ourselves up for empty bank accounts and overall end-of-year exhaustion. Don't get me wrong it's all great fun, but not gonna lie, it's a lot to pack into a few weeks! 

I'm thinking next year we do one big trip to celebrate it all!

I thought I'd compile a list of some of the gifts I have bought for J over the years as a sort of gift-guide for the special boy in your life (boyfriend, husband, brother, dad…). Hint: I find that clothing, booze, and electronics are never misses. 

For his birthday yesterday I got him this and then those Artemis kilim loafers (pictured above). The shoes are so cool as each pair is one of a kind, with materials cut from Turkish carpets. They have amaaaazing women's shoes too!

The needlepoint life belt I made him years ago is also one of his favorites that he still loves and wears all the time, though I need to make him a new one as we have a new anniversary date and some new milestones to add!

What are some great gifts you have bought for your favorite guys?

PS4 (I bought him PS3 a few years ago - worst idea, we basically didn't talk for days while he played…
