Valentine’s for HIM

Okay ladies, you have one week to find your man the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day. If you’re anything like us… You probably forgot all about Valentine’s Day until today. But don’t you worry.

Here are some inexpensive yet oh-so thoughtful gifts that your man will love!

Valentine's For HIM

  1. Harry’s Truman Foaming Gel Set from Onward Reserve ($20) – Every man loves a good shaving set to make him feel extra fancy while he’s grooming. This set is sleek and includes all your man would need to look clean-cut for a month. 3 blades are included! That’s awesome. Plus, Onward is having a 50% off sale through midnight tonight (2/8/15) with the code FALL50… So you just cannot beat the price for the quality!
  2. Dress Gordon Wool Tartan bow tie from Res Ipsa ($85) – You cannot go wrong with a classy tartan bow tie, especially during the winter months. Res Ipsa has the coolest story too! My law-minded man immediately identified with the brand name and then loved their story (the founders are two Georgia lawyers that wear bow ties… just like my guy!)
  3. Classic Vacuum Camp Mug from Stanley ($25) – Every man loves their coffee. And if your house is like mine, 99% of your mugs are very cutesy & girly. This travel mug says manly all over it, AND it will keep their coffee piping hot for hours and hours because of the vacuum seal.
  4. Eyebobs Total Wit Reading Glasses from Sid Mashburn ($80) – I love a smart man. I also love a man that looks smarter simply because he wears glasses. Yes, that’s shallow. But it’s honest. Will wears glasses sometimes and it gives him that “I’m reeeeeeeeally smart” edge. Obviously, we all already know he is though.. but the glasses are a bonus. These Eyebobs are gorgeous and bring back old school classic look that is oh-so stylish.
  5. Tickets to the Tour de Compadres show in your town! ($45/ ticket) – Whether you catch leg one or leg two, this tour is one you and your guy cannot miss! With Needtobreathe headlining and special guests like Switchfoot, Ben Rector, Drew Holcomb & Colony House, this is a concert that your man can get excited about and look forward to until this summer!! And we all know that the best gifts are the ones that you get to benefit from too! 🙂

Happy shopping for the man in your life!! Tomorrow I’ll post some hints for the fellas (aka. things for you to casually bring up in the next week and pray that he surprises you with next Saturday :))

FriYAY Faves (Black Friday Edition)

Braving Black Friday has never been my thing. The crowds. The “deals”. The staying awake after turkey. I just can’t.

But one thing I most definitely can do is some online shopping in my pjs, with leftover pie for breakfast, and Christmas movies on replay. I can do that. Here are some of my favorite things that I’ve found this week, and HOORAY!! They all include Black Friday (through Cyber Monday) specials!!

FriYAY Faves - black friday

1. “Cheers My Dears” Coaster Set from Ancesserie ($14) – Letterpress. If I could develop one skill and one skill only, it would be letterpress. We met Lydia of Ancesserie last year at the Plantation Wildlife Arts Festival in Thomasville. She shared their family’s story of letterpress with us, and I immediately fell in love with her style, passion, and skill for letterpress. With the holiday season upon us, we all need to protect our beloved surfaces with some fancy coasters. The “Cheers” set is only one of the many coaster sets that Ancesserie offers to hostesses with style. They also offer card sets, personalized items, and prints! Enjoy 20% off storewide now through Sunday the 30th!

2. USA Map print (State Flower Collection) from Thimble Press ($55) – This AWESOME map of the USA features each state’s flower. Two favorite things… flowers and the good ol’ USA. Kristen’s entire shop is lovely and includes cards, prints, CONFETTI… Yep, I said confetti. And she is offering 30% off everything now through Cyber Monday with the code THIMBLETHANKS!

3. Otis & Eleanor Navy Stripe Bongo Speaker from Onward Reserve ($140) – Will & I have looked at this speaker over and over. It’s sleek, portable, and can be connected to your devices via Bluetooth. And Onward is having a 20% off EVERYTHING sale using the code BLACKFRIDAY! But shop now… It’s today only.

4. Park Floral Studs from Kate Spade ($78) – Typically I wouldn’t put an expensive pair of studs on my faves… But Kate is having a SURPRISE SALE now through tomorrow (Saturday the 29th) and these pretties are only $25!!! You should check out everything in the surprise sale because most items are 75% off. All you have to do is click the surprise sale link, enter your email, and BOOM! You’re in 🙂

5. Rock & Candy Spraypaint Combat Booties in Tan from Macy’s ($59) – I know… more boots. Now that I have my ankle boots (that I loooooooove), I’m on the hunt for some combat boots. These are so cute and I love the plaid on the inside that you can turn down for a casual look. Plus, Macy’s is doing is right for Black Friday. 10% off with the code THANKS! But I may even wait until Cyber Monday… that’s when the major department stores will really do their online sales.

Shopping galore!! And there were so many goodies that I already have my line-up for next week ready 🙂

Happy Black FriYAY!
