gift guide 2012: husband edition

 

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5

I don’t know about you, but the man in my life is rather hard to shop for. He buys classic things that last and don’t need replacing very often, which over time means that the list of things he “needs” gets pretty slim. And what’s worse, he already has most of the things on this list (1-3) so my own gift guide doesn’t help me much, but hopefully it will help you!

I can’t recommend the Red Wing boots enough… they’re classic, and of impeccable quality. And the lip balm is one of the few products I can get Jared to use on a regular basis. Now let’s chat about #5, since I know this one is probably a little controversial… but there isn’t a man alive that wouldn’t want photos like this of his wife! The trick is to find a really high quality photographer who specializes in this type of photography. I haven’t done a boudoir shoot, but I think I would someday… I think it would be fun to get my hair and makeup all done up and pretend I’m a Victorias Secret model for an afternoon. You know, a VS model who has barely worked out since she had a baby and shows only the teensiest bit of skin. Hot! But seriously, you should go for it. I’ve heard from several women who said it was a huge ego boost. And I’m guessing it would be your husband’s favorite gift ever. :)

Stay tuned for next week’s gift guide for your BFF!

    $300+ for boudoir photos is outrageous. Have you never heard of Craigslist?!

    I love that you included the boudoir shoot. :) … Ironically I was thinking, “Wow, $300 is low.” :)

      Ha, agreed. I actually had $500 in there at first, but thought that might scare some people off. I figured they might be able to find a session fee for around $300 that doesn’t include any prints, so it wasn’t terribly misleading. :)
