I must admit, I did a fairly large amount of my holiday shopping yesterday and the day before. I had every intention of getting all my gifts early this Christmas and spending lots of time being thoughtful. Instead, just like years past, the holiday totally snuck up on me amidst a frenetic work schedule.
The saying is, ‘Two heads are better than one.’ But what about two start ups? That’s way better! We’ve teamed up with one of our favorite up-and-coming companies, Bonobos, to collaborate on a foolproof men’s gift giving guide. It’s the perfect synergy — they know fashion and we know grooming. Our powers combined created a stellar lineup of ideas for every type of man out there, from the busy traveler to the urban sophisticate. Check back each day this week for more picks and remember: ‘It’s the thought that counts’ is just a load of bologna.
In our opinion, the best part of the holiday season: the parties! Even as a dude, you should know that it’s important to throw down in style. We adore the Bonobos version of the man who knows how to mingle: a pair of preppy-yet-charming Christmas tree cords paired with a casual red henley and some very debonair oxfords. The way to complete this ensemble, of course, is to reach for your high-end Bulgari cologne and add a few sprays. Now you’re ready to work the room.
Check out the rest of the Bonobos holiday gift guide, curated by GQ stylist Brett Fahlgren, here.
‘Tis the season, which can mean only one thing: You are in search of great holiday gifts. Well, look no further. Whether you’re stumped about what to get a co-worker, your dad, or your bestie, we have something for everyone on your list. Check back every day this month for a new dose of gift-giving inspiration — and get ready to deck your halls with much more than holly.
Why this makes a great gift: Ladies love getting gussied up for the holidays, and there’s no faster or prettier way to do that than by adding a girly faux flower to their hair. The best part? This flora never wilts and looks equally snazzy when pinned to a blazer instead.
It’s perfect for: Any woman who loves putting a touch of fancy in her up-do or appreciates a bright pop of color near her collarbone.
Price: $25.00, available on birchbox.com

For Minor Maintenance Miss: Too Faced Primed and Poreless
It might seem a little off-kilter to give someone a primer as a gift, but believe me your friend/sister-in-law/mother/co-worker will love you for this one. If she’s never used primer you’re about to rock her world; if she’s already an addict, well you’ll have created a (well-groomed) monster. This little guy is the quickest way to turn normal skin into smooth, velvety, wow-are-you-carrying-your-own-flattering-lighting skin. The silicone-based formula rubs in completely and leaves your face matte and poreless (hence the name) - follow with makeup or go bare-faced.
