Holiday Gift Guide- MJD’s Favorite Things


In the spirit of my gift guide for the ladies that I posted last week, for my gift guide for the guys, I’m sharing some of MJD’s favorite things. These are gifts I’ve given him over the years and some that I repeat every year because they are just that good (the Kiehls Shave cream is always a stocking stuffer!). Like my favorite things, these items are tried and tested and the best gifts for the men in your life!

One. Barbour duffel bag– This is MJD’s go-to for a weekend get away. It looks awesome and fits what you need for a weekend perfectly. Great for the guy that likes to go on road trips with you.

Two. L.L. Bean Bean Boots– A necessity for any guy that lives in a colder climate. Both M and I love these. They are great for snow days especially in the city because you can trek through all the slush/gross dirty snow with no problem!

Three. Ugg Slippers– Another winter must have and one I am sure your guy wouldn’t treat himself to. MJD changes into his every night as soon as he gets home.

Four. Shinola Watch– This is for sure a splurge item, but Shinola watches make a great special gift if you are looking for something bigger to give this holiday. I love the blue face on this one that makes it fun for weekends, but nice enough to wear to work everyday too.

Five. Barbour Scarf– A good looking scarf with two patterns that can be worn either way- love this as a gift for anyone from a boyfriend to brother to father in law.

Six. Herschel Backpack– M recently treated himself to this bag before a big trip where he wanted a backpack that fit his laptop. He said it fits a bunch of other items too! Good gift for commuters!

Seven. Kiehl’s Close Shaver Shaving Cream– I always list this on my men’s gift guide, but I started putting this in MJD’s stocking several years ago and now it is the only shaving cream he uses. It is a go-to stocking stuffer every Christmas.

Eight. Riedel Whisky Decanter– If your gift recipient likes whisky, treat them to a bottle of the good stuff and this gorgeous decanter! I love it too because it looks nice on our bar 🙂

Nine. Coravin Wine System– We saw this during our most recent trip to Sonoma and knew we had to try it. With the Coravin Wine System, you can open wine without removing the cork so you can save the rest for another night. Perfect if you want to open a nice bottle but can’t commit to finishing!

Ten. Ice Rocks Mold– A stocking stuffer or add on gift for the whisky lover- this mold makes circular ice, for the gentleman who has his drink on the rocks.

Eleven. Yeti Colster– Huge Yeti fans in our house. This is their version of a coozie and it keeps your beer can cold while keeping your hand comfortable. M has one in his golf bag, one at home and one at my parent’s Cape House.

Twelve. Lululemon Tech Hoodie– M wears this all the time- heading to the gym, hanging out at home, sometimes even with jeans. It’s comfortable, but also functional for working out.

Thirteen. Lululemon ABC pants– A favorite of not only MJD’s, but my brother and dad too. They all say these are the best and most comfortable pants. Seem like a must have!

Fourteen. Barbour Waxed Jacket– A New England must have. The waxed Barbour jacket is a classic and I think everyone who wears one looks super handsome in it. Just one reason to gift it this holiday season!

Who are the men in your life that you are shopping for? Happy shopping!

xoxo, Jenna
