It’s still a couple days left till Christmas, so for all you guys who haven’t gotten that last gift on your list for someone, here’s some choices! Now shopping for men might be harder than shopping for women, because as women we generally gravitate towards ‘nice’ things such as perfume, jewelry, clothes, bags and shoes. Now a guy might gravitate towards these types of things as well but not as much as we do, TIP: Don’t get the male on your wishlist jewelry such as chains/necklaces. 1. He might never wear them or 2. He might wear them and end up looking like 2Chainz. LOL I kid. But now onto more serious matters.
From what I’ve learned, unless you’re shopping for a male who’s really likes reading or exploring interesting things, then books are cool as a gift. If he’s the type to prefer Madden NFL ’13 over reading Tolstoy, chances are he might not dig a novel as a present. I know personally, unless I’ve stated that I really want to read such and such novel/series, books are completely off the list for me. Or unless someone is up for buying all of next semester’s textbooks; then go right ahead. 😀
You cannot go wrong with one of these…unless he doesn’t own the console, like the sport or already has the game. LOL but, if he’s an avid basketball, football or soccer fan then NBA2k13, Madden 13 and Fifa 13 is a good choice. If he likes shooter games then Far Cry 3 and Halo 4, are great. Fifa 13 and Madden 13, Halo 4 are $39.99 each for XBOX 360. NBA 2k13 is $49.99 for XBOX and Far Cry 3 is $59.99.
From left to right: Acqua di Gio by Giorgio Armani, Burberry Brit for men, La Nuit De L’Homme by YSL.
Acqua di Gio is the epitome of an aquatic scent, it just smells like it belongs on a nice sandy breezy beach tucked away in the Caribbean. It is a masculine scent yet light and non overpowering. Totally fresh and light. Burberry Brit (for men) is the male version of the Burberry Brit, which smells fantastic. It’s a oriental woody fragrance with notes of bergamot, green mandarin, cedarwood, and more. All in all, this smells fantastic. La Nuit is a cologne that I’ve heard a lot of good things about. It is more of an evening scent, and it is very long wearing and doesn’t overpower. It contains notes of cardamon cedar and coumarin, which creates a very sexy scent. The Burberry Brit 3.4 oz EDT is available at Macys for $73. The Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gio giftset is $102 at Macys included is a 6.7 oz EDT and a Armani scarf. La Nuit de L’Homme is available at Sephora for $78 for a 3.3 oz EDT bottle.
I seem to have developed a liking for Express watches. With good reason of course; Express carries very classy looking watches at half the price of Michael Kors watches. These are the chronograph bracelet watches in black, gold and silver. They’re on sale for $88.80 at Express.com.
Roku Streaming TV/Netflix etc. $50. You can stream loads of channels, Hulu, Netflix and whatnot on your TV without having to connect a cable box to your TV. There are even some free stations included in there as well. $50.
Here’s a small electronic device that most people wouldn’t turn down. For at half the price of an iPAD the Kindle Fire allows you to read books from the Kindle Bookstore, play games, watch movies and TV shows, listen to music and browse the web. It’s easy to fit into a bag and fits right in the palm of your hand. $159 at Amazon.com
Of course, nothing beats just asking the person what they want for Christmas!
