Howdy Y’all! Johnny here. I’m back for my third year in a row of writing a gift guide for all the men in your life. You’ll find gifts for the readers, travelers, businessmen, sports fanatics, and more here that I’m sure will delight. This guide will be ideal for significant others, Dads, brothers, cousins, uncles, male coworkers, friends… oh! And the person you may have a crush on 😉 This gift guide for men is broken up into six parts. I hope you enjoy and find this useful! Happy shopping!
Johnny and I are at the age where a lot of our friends are still spread out across the country. Of course, I’ve been living away from home for the past four years, which has been hard. Sending out Christmas cards is a fun way for us to stay in touch with our friends and let them know what we’re up to. Similar to last year’s cards, we love to base the look and feel with how we decorate our Christmas tree. This year’s tree has blue decorations. The first Christmas tree I decorated when I moved far away from home had blue, so I felt it was fitting to have blue for my last year away from family.
What a whirlwind week it has been! I know with December creeping around the corner, there are holiday gatherings on almost everyone’s schedule. I know when I did a poll on Instagram, many of you wanted an office holiday party outfit idea. I’ll admit, this can be a tricky one, especially if it’s a party taking place at the office or place of work. Y’all know I’m a fan of versatile pieces and this Gal Meets Glam Nell dress and jacket is no exception. Julie Engel is such an inspiration and I’m more than happy to support her by purchasing something from her collection. This outfit makes me feel bold, confident and powerful. When I got this in the mail, I literally couldn’t wait to try it on!
I’m a big believer in giving gifts people will use. After all, you’re spending your hard-earned money so you don’t want it to go to waste! I’m partnering with Mark & Graham to share practical gifts for him and her. One reason I love Mark & Graham is you can personalize every gift. Adding a monogram is the extra touch and can make a gift truly unique and memorable. Plus, you can shop for anyone there, whether it’s a significant other, parent, best friend or coworker. My photographer who took these photos is actually looking at items to gift her bridesmaids from Mark & Graham. I’m breaking this post into gifts for him and gifts for her. If you’re an early shopper, grab some coffee or warm tea and settle in! I’ve got plenty of great gift ideas for you! Plus, Mark & Graham wrap all gifts in their signature gift wrap, so you don’t even have to do anything. Once they arrive, tuck them under the tree and you are all set.
Merry Christmas Y’all! I hope you are having a lovely holiday with your loved ones. As this year comes to a close, I want to say thank you to every single one of you. Thank you for reading my blog, this little piece of the internet. Thank you for your support. And thank you for coming here when you need a little inspiration when it comes to fashion, food, travel or lifestyle. If it wasn’t for each and every one of you, Color & Chic wouldn’t be where it is today without you. I also appreciate each of you for the love and friendship through this extremely hard year for me and my family…
