gift guide: the boys


I know I said that books always make good gifts for guys, but so do things. How and why did guys get such a bad reputation for being difficult to shop for? They have interests and hobbies just like everyone else! They’re normal…ish! And mens stuff really is the most fun. For this post, I tried to imagine what the coolest and nonchalant guys I know would want. Guys like my brother and cousin, though I’m not picking favorites. What would they like? What would they use? Gift giving is a funny thing because on the one hand, you want to get someone something that they’re going to like and use. And on the other hand, this is a great opportunity to get them something that they would never buy themselves, something that’s a little extravagant. With that, here is a smathering of personalized gifts, some go-to favorites, and indulgent extras.
