Men are Hard to Shop For

Happy birthday to the love of my life! No, I'm not talking about Elsa- her birthday is in December. I mean the other love of my life.

Today is Sam's birthday- something I dread every year. Why? Because men are hard to shop for. So stinkin' hard. This year was especially difficult because ever since he got a grown-up job he started just buying everything and wanting for nothing. It's not like he has a diamond ring to be saving for or anything... SO ANYWAYS, I decided to just buy a bunch of random crap, throw it in a box, and call it a birthday care package. That works, right?

A bluetooth shower speaker. Sam will absolutely love this. It's perfect because he always listens to music in the shower, and he loves anything to do with technology. Bonus: since the speaker will be in the shower with him he won't have to turn it up so loud, and I won't be bothered while I'm sleeping in. Win-win!

A whole bunch of their favorite candy. Sam adores Sour Patch Kids, so I get them for him for every holiday and/or occasion. Hopefully he never gets sick of them! This year I got him the regular kids, the Extreme kids, and the new Sour Patch Kids gum.

A polar bear rug for their iPhone. Sam loves his iPhone more than he loves, well, me. When I saw this adorable incredibly masculine charging rug on Etsy I knew he had to have it. It keeps the charger on their night stand instead of lost on their floor, and the faux fur muffles any vibrations from the phone for a disturbance free slumber!

A manly print for their wall. Sam and his roommate are both big Top Gear fans, so I made him this print to hang in his apartment. I'm also sending a gift card to buy a frame- I don't really want to risk putting one in the mail!

Some stuff that smells good. There's nothing wrong with getting a little something for yourself on his birthday!

I hope he likes it! Feel free to use my gift ideas for your boyfriend, and let me know if you have any brilliant ideas of your own; I need to start planning for next year!

  1. The polar bear rug is cute! I actually have that bluetooth shower radio, and I just love it because I can skip songs in the shower!

  2. You are sooooo right. Men are the hardest to shop for because most guys are just simple. Once you buy for one holiday or birthday, it's easy to run out of ideas. You have some great picks though, those speakers are really cool.

  3. These are great ideas! Thanks to you I ordered that shower speaker for my brother and it'll be here tomorrow :-)
