I've got Christmas shopping for my boyfriend on the brain, and I thought I'd put together a gift guide of what I'm eyeing this year. When I finished, I realized every item was either booze or health related, which is admittedly a little odd, but hey, they still make for great gifts!
1 ~ Jawbone: UP by Jawbone tracks how you exercise, eat, sleep and more, all for the sake of living healthier and feeling your best. I personally find the smart alarm feature interesting—the device knows when you fall asleep, and can wake you up in the morning at the optimal point of your sleep cycle so you wake up feeling refreshed.
2 ~ Whiskey Stones: Even guys who aren't whiskey connoisseurs like to have whiskey stones. I think it helps them feel bougie and like they are really knowledgeable at whiskey drinking.
3 ~ 2 Liter Growler: My mom is actually getting this for my boyfriend this Christmas, and he's pretty stoked on it. You can package up your homebrew, or have breweries like Russian River fill 'er up for you to take home.
4 ~ Beer Brewing Kit: Making beer at home has become really trendy, and I feel like every guy just has to try it.
5 ~ Moustache Flask: Because guys like to booze on the go.
6 ~ Game of Thrones Shot Glass Set: So epic. Winter is coming.
7 ~ Ergotron Stand Workstation:Ok, I'm the first to admit this is the least sexy/hipster option on my gift guide, but hear me out. I read a new study every week about how sitting all day is awful for you, and that standing at your desk instead can increase your lifespan by two years. Despite this, not every company is keen on spending a grand per employee for a standing desk. And some will require a doctor's note if you do ask for one. I don't know about your man, but mine barely goes to the doctor when something is wrong, let alone just to get a silly note to get a standing desk. Get him this ergo workspace option and he'll be standing in no time.
