Gift Ideas For Guys + Giveaway

The Boy can be THE MOST difficult person to buy a gift for. He’s not fussy. Nor is he picky. And he rarely says, “I need that.” On the rare occasion he does utter those words, he just buys it. Sooooo frustrating. I’ve always bought him a cookbook for Christmas (that’s kind of our thing), and a good standby is a bottle of cologne (booooring). He’s a sweatshirt and jeans kinda guy. No wool sweaters, no fancy ties. As the holidays draw nearer, my anxiety for gift ideas gets greater and greater.

West Elm Wants

West Elm is one of my favorite home furnishing stores, and they have been killing it lately. They have such a clean, modern look that really fits my decor of mixing old and new with a twist of Mid Century Modern.

For today’s post, I decided to pull together a few of my absolute favorites. Managing to restrain myself and keep it to a Top 10 list. Soooo difficult! Seriously you guys, I swear I could buy every single item in this store. But alas, I cannot. The Boy might string me up by my toes and have me publicly shamed if I did so.

However, if you are looking for something sweet for mom, dad, sister, brother, BFF, or just for yourself (which OMG, there’s only 7 more Fridays until Christmas…yikes! Get on that already!) I thought this little list might help ya out. Give you some gift giving ideas. So let’s get on with it, shall we? BTW, ALL images below are from West Elm.
