Gifts For The Guy That Has Everything

I always tell the Husband that I'm a dream to shop for. I'm usually swooning over something and (lucky for him) I'm pretty vocal about it. This gives him plenty of ideas when it comes to picking out gifts. He, on the other hand, is extremely difficult to shop for. If he wants it he buys it and if not he never mentions it. Picking out the perfect gift has always been a game of texting his friends mixed with some serious sleuthing. The gifts below are perfect for almost any guy on your list when you need a gift in a pinch. My personal fave is No. 3: Mr. Smith's curated spirits subscription. Think of it as Birchbox for guys but with hand-picked, award winning and special release spirits.
Happy Shopping!

1. Ugg Ascot Slipper / 2. Vintage Speaker / 3. Mr. Smith's Curated Spirits / 4. Bols Barrel Aged Genever
5. Cloche Table Lamp / 6. Transatlantic Travel Carryon / 7. Limited Edition Bose Headphones
8. Cashmere Lined Smartphone Gloves / 9. IL Ceppo Travel Shaving Kit

Collabaholic - L'Wren Scott for Banana Republic


This is it. All my Christmas wishes have come true and they're all priced under $200. Behold...the L'Wren Scott for Banana Republic collection. Available in stores and online now. I can't remember a collaboration where I literally wanted every single piece. Perfect for the holiday season, there is fur, sequins, brocade and the most fun, wearable print that I'm pretty much obsessed with. She killed it.

It was hard to narrow it down but these are my top looks.

Stock Your Sleigh with Tiffany & Co

Tiffany & Co holiday window 2013
I still remember my first blue box. It was at Christmas many, many years ago and there I was, in my pajamas in the living room, sobbing. "Well, are you going to open it?", my mother asked. I couldn't get past the mere magic of the box itself with its perfect ribbon, let alone open it. It wasn't just a gift. It was a moment. Many years and boxes later and that little blue box still sends butterflies through my heart.


This year, why not turn those holiday gifts into magical moments for the loved ones on your list? Tiffany & Co at Eton Chagrin Boulevard opened a few months ago and the staff is gracious and simply a joy to work with. Come in with your budget in mind and they can curate a collection for you to shop from. Here are a few of my favorite things for all the good girls and boys on your list.

Fifth Avenue Mug / Woven Vase / Champagne Flute / Plaid Bowl
Martini Glass / T-Clip Pen  / Thumbprint Brandy Snifter / Champagne Ornament

Key Ring / Arrow Pendant / Birth Record Frame / Purse Pen / Atlas Pendant
Bookmark / Desk Diary / Olive Leaf Band Ring / Crosby Tote

Key Ring / Money Clip / Tablet Cover / Decanter
Cuff Links / Zip Billfold / Passport Cover

Snowflake Ornament / Gemea Watch / Atlas Hinged Bangle / Quinn Top Handle Bag
Olive Leaf Band Ring / ID Ring / Cat Eye Sunglasses

The benefit of having our very own Tiffany & Co in Cleveland is that you can swing by and visit the pretties any time you like. Anything not in stock can be ordered and shipped free to your door. Have a few things that you need to see in person before taking the plunge? No problem. They can order them in and have them ready in store for viewing with no obligation whatsoever. Happy Shopping!

::Disclosure - I was invited to attend a grand opening VIP event and private store tour where I received this little piece of heaven. All musings, as always, are my own::
