gift guide for guys

After gifts for me (and all you ladies) and gifts for the kiddos, I’m finishing  up the week with a list of things you might consider for the man on your list: Some practical things, some grooming things, some libations and some gadgets that he’ll love playing with. My husband lives in the blue track suit below (it’s THE softest thing you have ever felt) and those Chelsea boots look chic yet furry enough for a romp through the snow.
