Holiday Gift Guide for the Men

I’m not sure about you guys, but I always have the hardest time finding the perfect present for the men in my life.  Lucky for me, I only have to buy two presents for guys - something for my step-dad and my BF.  My stepfather has always says that he doesn’t need anything for his birthday or for Christmas.  He’s a pretty easygoing guy that just likes it when you spend time with him.  And my BF always says that I don’t need to buy him anything because his family didn’t exchange presents when he was younger.  He’s just happy spending time with his loved ones.  So, now you see my dilemma.  I try to honor their wishes, but I really enjoy buying gifts for others and seeing the recipient’s face light up with delight.  Anyways, I just recently finished my Christmas shopping, but wanted to provide a list for anyone else that struggles with finding the perfect gift for the men in your life.  For this week Fresh Picks to Follow, here’s my top 10 gift ideas for the man who has everything he needs and claims he doesn’t want anything for Christmas.  Let me know if you have any additional suggestions for this gift guide.

Holiday Gift Guide for the Hostess

How many of you have gone to someone’s house for a dinner or housewarming party with the traditional bottle of wine, candle or a small houseplant?  I know that I'm totally guilty of doing this myself.  Giving a host or hostess a gift is a great way to show a little token of gratitude.  I’ve always been taught that you shouldn’t go to someone’s house empty handed.  Now I don’t bring a gift every time I visit a friends’ home, but I definitely try to follow Emily Posts etiquette rule during special occasions. These days, there are so many options for a hostess gift beside the traditional bottle of wine or a candle. Here are my top 10 ways to show the hostess with the mostest that you appreciate their hospitality.  Do you normally give the hostess a little something extra during a visit to their home?  Let me know in the comments and let me know if you have any additional suggestions for this gift guide.

1. Nostalgia Electrics - Ice Shaver…$20.00
2. Stonewall Kitchen - Our Blueberry Breakfast Gift…$39.95
3. Jonathan Adler - Zebra Coasters…$48.00

Holiday Gift Guide for the Secret Santa

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m a little behind in my holiday shopping this year.  I’ve picked up a few things here and there throughout the year, but I’m nowhere close to being finished.  Yesterday morning I finally wrote out my Christmas list and I tried to come up with gift ideas for everyone. I had an idea for most of the people on my list, but there were a few that left me completely stumped.  So, I decided to put together another holiday gift guide in the attempt to come up with some ideas for myself and anyone else that may need it. 

For this edition of Fresh Picks to Follow, I picked out a few gifts that are affordable and shouldn’t break the budget.  And the best thing about this guide is that all of these picks are under $25.00.  I hope that this guide will be helpful for anybody that needs help figuring out what to buy for a Secret Santa gift exchange, for a friendly coworker or a last minute gift. Let me know if you have any additional suggestions for this gift guide.
