Chanuka Gift Guide 2012 Part 2: For The Men

I really planned to have this gift guide up sooner but I had such a busy week and just didn't have time for anything. I feel like I'm lucky to have gotten to bed and put some food in my mouth- that's how insane it was. This is the second part of my chanuka gift guide series and this time it's for the hims- your father, brother, nephew, uncle, son, husband and any other male relations. Because I didn't get this up sooner and didn't get around to a post yesterday I will try my best to get part 3: for the children up as soon as possible as well. Like with the women's gift guide many of these items may be a little expensive for some and therefore I've tried my best to include some less costly options too. I just want to repeat what I had stated in that post as well: whatever gift you purchase will definitely be appreciated either way as it should be about the act of giving the person you care about a special gift then the actual price tag, but hey that's just my opinion. And now, here are my gift ideas:

1) Cologne:

This set is bound to impress. It includes 3 items- a 3 ounce cologne spray, a deodorant stick and an all over shampoo. Scents are pretty personal but this one really smells great to me with it's invigorating Italian lemon and mandarin alongside crushed green leaves, fresh lavender and a defiant punch of pink pepper.

2) Mens Jewelry:

This round faced 46 MM watch really stands out in the crowd with it's black textured dial, date window and quartz movement. Plus, it's water resistant up to 50 Meters.

B) Cufflinks- Donald J. Trump Cufflinks, Crystal Center Cufflinks- $28.99 -These rectangular cufflinks with seven crystals arranged in the center row will make a fantastic gift. That dazzling bling will be the perfect addition to any of his dress shirts.

3) Ties:
Ties are always a good choice when shopping for the men. There's colors and styles to suit every taste and they get alot of use out of it. Here are three that I like and can see my husband going for as well.


4) Skin Care & Shave Essentials:
I know skin care sounds funny when we're talking about males but they most likely will want to and should be able to take care of blemishes, dry skin, oily skin etc. so that they can be comfortable with how their face looks all the time. If they have their own fancy kit they most likely will happily use it.
Also with shaving and all they usually will need something to soothe the area before and after so when we're talking about skin care that is also included.
 This set will kick his daily routine up a notch. It includes a face scrub, pre-shave gel, post shave healer and a nice bonus- anti fatigue cooling eye gel.
Another great one by one of my favorite skin care brands. This three-piece kit  consists of a 1 oz Hope In A Jar Oil-Free SPF 30, an 8 oz Razor Sharp Extra-Close Shaving Gel and an 8 oz The Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash.

The Art of Shaving compact and water-resistant Travel Kit & Razor is a necessity for the man on the go. It also makes for a perfect start-up shaving kit. Complete with an elegant Fusion Razor, Pure Badger Travel Shaving Brush, and convenient travel pumps of Pre-Shave Oil (1 oz.), Shaving Cream (1.7 oz.), and After-Shave Balm (1 oz.) His shaving routine will be easy to achieve wherever he travels.
One of the highest rated wet/dry electric shavers with a Jet clean system! Need I say more? I think not.

 5) Accessories & Electronics:

This slim leather wallet has 8 slots. It will make his busy life that much easier and organized.

No more losing battery life when right in the middle of something important. He can now get all of his electronic devices charged up at that same time. This all inclusive charging station from The Sharper Image is an electronic lifesaver for all battery powered needs.

For the man with a fine taste for wine. This sleek, compact wine cellar is great solution for reds, whites and champagnes. By maintaining the ideal storage temperature, it ensures that up to eight bottles of wine preserve their signature bouquet, flavor and body. The brushed stainless steel exterior and softly lit interior make for an elegant, modern display.
I love mini things. This newest one is the latest from Apple and it's everything he loves about iPad in a mini version. It can be conveniently held in one hand!
