Ok so the title says “men” because obviously we buy presents for men other than our husbands or significant others from time to time. However, this particular go around I was buying for my husband. So here goes…
Our 4th wedding anniversary is coming up on Thanksgiving this year! Usually I always order something he sends me a specific link for, but I’m a little tired of always giving the cheaper/less original gift. He’s really a very picky individual that collects very specific objects. For example, he collects high quality knives. All kinds. They’re freaking everywhere at my house! He also smokes a tobacco pipe. So now we have that collection clutter on my shelves. He also likes hats and John Muir quotes.
Clearly, I’m married to a “hipster” lol. It’s cool, he’s honestly a pretty rad dude and I love him dearly (most days). So I really wanted to go above and beyond my usual Amazon order. So here’s a short list of the ideas I brainstormed.
- A new pipe and collection of new tobacco
- A beard grooming gift set
- Concert tickets
- Rocking chair (for front porch sittin’)
- Stranger Things collectibles
- Suspenders and a few outfits to go with them
- Record player and some vinyls
Okay so this isn’t the most extensive list but you have to know my guy. I really just wanted to give you a scaffold of ideas to branch off of when you’re doing your own shopping. I went with the record player and a Chris Stapleton vinyl by the way. First time EVER that I have his gift before he has mine. I think that means I win this year lol. I ended up with a Crosley Cruiser from Target (yes, I scored this on a Target run lol). They have Vinyl now so I picked that up at Target also. Right now they have the black Crosley for $59.99! I spent about $80 total and I know it’s a gift he’ll use time and time again. Also, the helpful guy in electronics let me know that there wasn’t a huge difference between the Cruiser and the more expensive options so snaps for him and thank you little buddy! 👏🏼🙌🏼 If you’ve managed to scroll to the end, thanks for reading! I’ll be sure to check in and let you know what he thinks and where we score some amazing new records.
