ANM Gift Guide: Gifts for Guys post image

As a guy, I can admit that we can be pretty tricky to shop for. In the past, I have felt really bad for the girlfriends who got me gifts that I didn’t really like, or had no need for, and felt really impressed by the ones who got it right.

Back in November, Sabrina asked me to start thinking about a list of great gifts for guys and told me that she had done gift guides for guys during previous holiday seasons but never really felt like she knew what she was talking about. When it comes to the holidays and gift-giving, I really don’t need much. Most of the time I would prefer that the girl I’m going out with doesn’t even get me a gift – I’d rather she just save her money than blow it on something I don’t need (that I would have to pretend to like).

As I started to think about gifts for guys, I realized how hard it is to shop for something I would actually appreciate and want if it were given to me. After several weeks of deliberation (right up to the deadline), I finally came up with my picks for great gifts that virtually every guy would appreciate.

Holiday Gift Ideas Part 1: For the Party Hostess post image

The holidays are a great time of year, but there’s always the daunting task of trying to find the perfect gift for all of the beautiful people in your life. I LOVE coming up with gift ideas, but if you’re like 98% of my friends and family the thought of gift shopping stops you dead in your tracks.  So here I am to share with you some ideas to help get you through the process with ease and to find the perfect gift for that someone special.

We’re going to kick things off with the party hostess.  One of the best parts about the holiday season is the parties.

Here are some gifting ideas to really flatter the party planners in your life:
