Christmas Shopping for a Dapper Gentleman

Hello Handsome

1 // A sharp jacket. Elbow patches make me weak in the knees, boy howdy. A blazer like this is perfect for a date night out to a fancy restaurant or a simple movie. I think every gentleman needs a nice jacket in his closet. It's a necessity! It's a handsome, delicious necessity!

2 // Wooden lapel flowers. With the Fancy-Dress Party season upon us, why not buy him something unique and fabulous that he can add to his suit for some debonair flavour-flave? ( read that right...I'm a dork remember?!) Heck, I kind of want one of these for myself!

3 // Sweet Vinyl. Yes, I know it is very hipster of me to suggest buying a record album, but shuttup! Records are awesome! And Beck is even more awesome...yesiree.

4 // Ummm....yep! Yes, I realize I have a pic of some sassy underpants up there, but hear me out. These underpants aren't your regular, run-of-the-mill ones. They are fancy and have technology and we all know how much guys love their technology. They think it's romantic to buy you nice underpants, so why not return the favour? Please note: this gift is probably not appropriate for your Dad, Grandpa, Brother or Uncle(s). Unless it is, and then who am I to judge?!

5 // A knife. We got a fancy knife earlier this year, and while I made fun of it (who knew one knife could cost so much?!) I absolutely adore it now and never cut anything without it. Even if your guy isn't a whiz in the kitchen, a sharp chef's knife may at least get him eating more vegetables or helping out a little!

6 // Alcohol...not pictured, but you can imagine... Yes, I realize that not every gentleman is a drinker, but most enjoy imbibing in the spirits every now and again. Is he a scotch drinker who might like to try something new? Or a beer man, who likes craft brews and keeps a bottle collection of his recent favourites? Whichever he is, I am sure he would appreciate a bottle of something under the tree. And if you're not sure which direction to take, ask the experts for a suggestion at your local fancy liquor store.

This list could go on and on. And on and on! But I will leave you there. I hope you spoil the Dapper Gentleman in your life this Christmas. And that he spoils you in return!

later loves


  1. I like your ideas! And your underpants suggestion made me laugh - definitely not getting any for my dad!

  2. Is it weird for me to say my fiance loves SAXX? Haha, they would make a great gift.
