The Elegant Gift Guide for him!

By him, I'm not talking about your significant other, partner, husband, or even boyfriend. I trust that you already know exactly what to buy for that very special person in your life.

This gift guide is more for the people you might know or see a little less, whether is your father or brother in law, your boss who invited you to his private Christmas party, a friend, or even a neighbor.

The holiday season this year promises to be a little different and we'll probably have way fewer holiday parties, but this little guide is really timeless and I can see these gifts still being big hits 5 years from now.

Never buy random gift cards to offer someone again, today I'll show you a selection of thoughtful, elegant gifts with a wide variety of price points to make the best impression. Some might even sound a little surprising to you (looking at you, number 9)!

My bonus gift for any Secret Santa/White elephant party would be this genius and budget-friendly Electric Wine Bottle Opener

And remember you can never go wrong with a very nice bottle of wine (get help from your local winery or store to select the perfect one) or a nice bottle of champagne (don't buy Asti, Prosseco, or sparkling wine, if you don't want to spend on real champagne, select some wine instead)

As always, avoid everything cheap looking, poor quality, or poor fabric.

Quality over quantity, always. And remember to carefully select your wrapping, it makes a world of difference!

Last little tip: When you find THE perfect gift to offer, buy it in bulk and offer it around.

I personally like having a little gifts reserve for both men and women at home, just in case something pops up.

It can be 6 bottles of Veuve Cliquot ready to offer, or cashmere socks that always make everyone happy.

I also buy my gifts throughout the year, it helps me avoid the holiday rush, the pressure to find the right gift in one single shopping session, items shipped too late, etc...

"Failing to plan is planning to fail", sounds familiar? Try giving your mother in law an Amazon Gift Card because the grocery store was the last place opened by the time you remember her birthday :)

And there you have it!

Stay tuned for The Elegant Gift Guide for her!
