Holiday Gift Guide: What to Buy Your Guy This Season
December 1, 2010 1 Comment
Now that December has finally arrived, and the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree is lit, it is finally time to start worrying about what to get the man in your life. It can sometimes be a bit difficult finding the right gift, so I have compiled a few haute looks to create a HAUTE NYC holiday gift guide. Holiday budgets may be tight, but your gifts don’t have to look cheap! Here are some great gift ideas that won’t break the bank.
1. Razor Pit
This May, while working as the Fashion Assistant at MAXIM Magazine, I had written an article for MAXIM.com’s Grooming Guide entitled Revolution Razor, which can be seen here. When thinking of holiday gift ideas, I instantly remembered this article. The Razor Pit is a great stocking stuffer for any man this season. Typical razor blades can only be used a couple of times. The awesome guys at Grooming Lounge have come up with a product that’ll keep your shave smooth and your wallet full. The Razor Pit removes all the soap, hair, and general grime from your razor. It promises to extend your blade’s life up to 100 shaves and works with any razor blade you already own. Grooming Lounge refers to it as a way to “recession-proof your razor” and we couldn’t agree more.
Not only does the Razor Pit clean your razor, it also enhances smoothness no matter where you use it. For guys, your face is one of your most important assets. Give it the attention it deserves by using Razor Pit. Still confused on how it actually works? Watch the video below to find out just how easy it really is! Razor Pit is available for only $25 exclusively at Grooming Lounge locations or www.groominglounge.com.
2. iPad Cover
For the one who’s tech savvy, pick him up a stylish iPad cover. There are literally tons of different designs and fabrics online to cater to anyone’s sense of style. Amazon.com offers a sharp leather cases available in brown, black, and red for a great low price of only $19.95.
SkoobaDesign.com offers one of the most unique iPad cases that I have seen so far. The SkoobaWrap doesn’t only hold an iPad. It comes in three different styles allowing you to use it for an iPad, a digital camera, a laptop computer, and pretty much anything else you want to wrap up. This functional & versatile item is on sale through the website for only $14.95.
3. Marc Jacobs BANG
Let your man bring in the new year with a BANG. The new scent for men by Marc Jacobs is a mixture of masculine woods and peppercorns, with a hint of white moss and patchouli for a sensual scent that will make you swoon. You can have him smelling BANG-able for as little as $55 on Sephora.com.
4. The Music Man
Dress up the musicial man in your life, and yes, in this case air guitar DOES count. Rocking a t-shirt with his favorite band or singer is nothing we haven’t seen before. You can head over to almost any store and buy a one but the new t-shirt line from Archive 1887 goes above and beyond your average rocker tee. Archive 1887 is a collaboration brand between The Thread Shop and Sony Music. They pride themselves on being built on music history going back all the way to 1887. What’s really awesome about this brand is that they use never-before-seen relics and photographs from Sony Music archives. These tees include some pretty sweet photos of the biggest names in music history such as Miles Davis, Sly and the Family Stone, David Bowie, Bob Dylan, and more.
Archive 1887 takes wearing a piece of history to new levels. Shirts cost around $58, but every piece of merchandise purchased comes with an online code to bring to their website, unlocking some killer playlists by the artist. The code also provides the customer with history about the artist’s career as well as a key that could be worn as a necklace to represent their “All Access” online vault. Buy Archive 1887 on www.archive1887.com, at Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman, and other specialty boutiques.
