He’s your rock. Yet when it’s time to get him a gift, the question always begs to be answered – “What in the world do I get him?” Look past the obvious when shopping for him this year. Below you’ll find six gifts that have actually been approved by my husband, including one of this all-time favorites.


For the Coffee Connoisseur
KickAssCoffee The name alone is reason enough to order a can of Kicking Horse Kick Ass Coffee. This dark roast is sweet, smoky and full-bodied and will kick some sleepy man butt. Comes in whole bean, so be sure you have a grinder on hand.

For the Cook
Food safety is on top of mind of any chef. I picked up the Joseph Joseph® POP 3-Piece Chopping Mat Set on RueLaLa the other day to keep chopping veggies and meat separate. We love the ease of cleaning these and the easy storage.

For the Sports Buff
Does your man tailgate? Personalize a portable grill and customize it with his team’s colors. Pick up some paint at Walmart and use painters tape to make the helmet stripes.
Price: $29.99 + paint & time

For your HS Sweetheart
Bring back the memories of the day you met with the cologne he wore. Curve for Men was what my husband wore in high school and every time I smell it, I’m transported back in time.

For the Guy with Dry Skin
I hear a close shave is hard to achieve. Udderly Smooth Hand & Body Moisturizing Lotion for Dry Skin can be used as shaving “cream” to get that close shave and leave the skin silky smooth (and super kissable!).
Price: $5.75

For the Grill Master
Sear, Sauce & Serve was under the tree last year and has been one of my husband’s favorite cookbooks this year. The recipes in the cookbook are easy to understand and can turn even the novice cook into a gourmet chef.

Ashley traded Prada for pacis in 2012 when she became a member of the elite club of motherhood. She is married to her high school sweetheart of nearly 15 years and together they have two toddlers - "Bear" and "Little Man." She spends her days as a marketing professional and nights writing this blog. In her [not so] spare time, she enjoys reading trashy tabloids, large glasses of buttery chardonnay, and shopping clearance racks.
