Hi friends! Is it just me or does today (Tuesday) already feel like Friday? Ever since my folks went back to California, we’ve just been crazy busy with work–all good stuff, but man I’m looking forward to a break! (You should see the mess that is our house right now. Stuff mounds here. Laundry piles there. I’ll get to them at some point…)

Anywho, with Black Friday around the corner and Christmas only a few weeks away, I’ll be posting some gift guides for you in case you need help getting gifts for the special peeps.

To kick off the gift guides, I’ll be giving you some gift ideas for the men in your life (Side note: I did an Instagram poll, and lots of you said you wanted a gift guide for the gents, especially fathers-in-law! If you’re not following me on Instagram, you can do so here). I’ve heard from a number of friends that men can be hard to shop for, and I get it! Clearly, not everyone likes the same things and gift giving isn’t a one-size-fits-all type of situation, but I’m hoping this list gives you some ideas you hadn’t thought about and makes your gift-getting process a little less complicated :D. Be sure to read through the list, so you don’t miss out on the bonus gift ideas!
