Holiday Gift Guide - for the Boys

It's Pour L'amour's first holiday season! and I am super excited to debut the first of a week-long series of holiday gift guides, full of ideas for all of those on your gift-giving list.

I am one of those who goes craazy for Christmas, and I especially love picking out and putting together perfect gifts for my loved ones. In my family, as the resident shopping-lover, I tend to do the bulk of it (no complaints here), I've also done my share of personal shopping (buying gifts on anothers' behalf), and worked for years in retail (I'm also a gift-wrap expert, haha), leaving me pretty good at picking out gifts for all sort of people.  Today's guide is geared towards the Boyfriend/Brother:

Details...  I've found an excellent way to get your guy to dress the way you like is to buy him clothes! apparently I like a little prep? Banana Republic sweaters. BR, GAP and Old Navy always have excellent deals at the holidays.
  A watch is a great gift for someone special. I love Michael Kors mens timepieces; a couple years ago I chose one similar to this as the first major gift I ever got my bf, I still really love it and steal borrow it all the time. Michael Kors stainless steel chronograph watch.  A lot of the guys I know are for the first time living on their own or with a partner, away from a roommate situation into a more grown-up space - gifts for the home are a great choice in this case.  The Breville Panini press has garnered great reviews.  The DuraClear Margarita glass set is shatter-resistant, dishwasher safe and great for outdoor entertaining. Album covers make for great and personal wall art.  These inexpensive frames up their sophistication significantly - LP Album frame.  For the boy who likes hip-hop and reading... Decoded, by Jay-Z. I've actually heard this is quite good (Yes, Oprah approves) and would like to read it myself. Boys wear belts out! a new one is always appreciated.  BR Versatile harness belt. Cozy slippers are always welcome in the wintertime. And no matter how much we kinda hate them - let's admit it, we all love our UGGs.  UGG 'Ascot' slipper, and BR 'Santa Girl' Boxers.

Make sure you check in tomorrow for more great gift ideas! xo Caitlin
