The Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide for Him

Men. Why are they the hardest people on this planet to shop for? If you ask my husband or my father they will say “it’s not difficult, I don’t want anything”. But you are being difficult dad. So I’ve rounded up some of my favorite gift ideas for the guys that they are sure to love.

Here are some practical, techy, and fun gifts that are sure to beat socks or another jar of nuts.

(Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links)

1.) Mytagalongs charger case

This was one of Oprah’s favorite things this year. This case keeps all of his chargers, earbuds and cables all in one place without getting tangled.

2.) Ugg’s slippers

Because who doesn’t want a cozy, warm pair of slippers that will last forever?

3.) Yeti Roadie cooler

As Amazon puts it, “Yeti coolers are the stuff of legends”.  Therefore, he needs this. He can BYOB on any terrain.

4.) Breakfast sandwich maker

I feel like making a mean breakfast should be a requirement when picking out your husband. Now he can make you the best breakfast sandwich and serve it to you in bed any time you want for $18.99. You’re welcome.

5.) Garmin Striker

For the guy who likes fishing.

6.) Bottle opener flip flops

Flip flops that have a bottle opener installed on them so he can crack a cold one wherever he is. You are sure to be wife or daughter of the year.

7.) Travel french press

Now he can brew his coffee and drink it on the go.

8.) Oculus Go

Now he can have a front seat to the best concerts and games with this Virtual Reality device.

 

 

So there you have it. You can also check out my Christmas gift guide for kids or my gift guide for her.

Happy Holidays!

Homemade Irish Cream Recipe

This homemade Irish cream is a favorite among family and friends! It tastes really yummy, makes you feel all warm and toasty inside and makes great homemade gifts. (For more homemade gift ideas check out my etsy shop.)

I’m sharing my Homemade Irish Cream Recipe below

 

 

I make this homemade Irish cream every year.  It’s something I look forward to every holiday season and my family and friends do too! In just under 5 minutes you can have your own homemade Irish cream to drink on its own or add a splash to your coffee. Plus, add a cute ribbon and you have your own homemade hostess gift.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cups of whiskey
  • 14 oz of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup chocolate syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract (optional – you can also use coconut extract instead, either way both are delish!)

Directions:

  • Pour all ingredients into a mixing bowl.
  • Using an immersion blender, mix together all ingredients for about 30 seconds. (You can also blend together in a blender). Just be careful not to overmix so as not to whip the cream.
  • Pour into a glass bottle or mason jar. Keep refrigerated.
