The Best Gifts For Your Guy

December 16, 2019


Erin Schrader

Disclosure: Thank you to Backcountry and ShopStyle for sponsoring today’s post. All items were chosen by yours truly [and her man ;)]

They continue to be one of the hardest people to shop for thanks to their favorite line of “I don’t need anything” when the question is asked what they want for gifts under the tree. Well, you may not NEED anything but you better believe your girl is going to buy you something. Have I ever mentioned how gifts are my love language and I believe strongly in showering those I love with all of the things? Shawn being at the top of the list. Thankfully, there’s Backcountry to help me with that.

If you’re still looking for gifts for your guy, there is still time thanks to their fast FREE 2-day shipping over $50! Right now you can use code YELLOW15 for 15% off your first order at Backcountry.com (exclusions apply)! I love turning to Backcountry because they carry a wide variety of brands I trust and love while offering the best customer service I’ve ever experienced personally. They also cater to a variety of interests and activities so whether your guy loves hiking, skiing, fishing, or just staying warm and looking even hotter when out and about, this is the place for you.

Here are some tried & true combined with new and exciting gifts to give your guy this holiday season! 

Let’s start with some pieces of this outfit you see below – awesome given separately or together as one big gift!First up, this The North Face Aconcagua Down Vest which is the perfect vest for your man. Not too bulky while still plenty warm! It comes in a variety of colors and is under $100! If you need a great layering tee to pair with it, Shawn loved this The North Face Terry Long-Sleeve Crew! Top it off with a great pair of waterproof boots like these Sorel Madson 6in WP Boot and he’ll be dressed from head to toe, ready to tackle the winter weather!

If you’re looking for a little less fashion and a little more accessories and items he’ll use on a regular basis, I’ve got you. Here are three under $50 items for you to give that I know he we will love [I know, because this guy loved ’em]. First up, this always reliable YETI Rambler Lowball. Whether he uses it for coffee on the go, a cold cocktail while tailgating, this covered YETI will keep his drink smokin’ hot or colder than cold. This is an awesome under $20 gift! Next up, the biggest star of the show when he opened these items — these The North Face Etip Gloves. They work so incredibly well with technology meaning his hands can stay warm while he stays connected. Shawn was very pleasantly surprised by how warm they were [but most surprised with how well they worked on his phone]! Last but certainly not least on the gifts under $50, this NRS Pilot Knife. Shawn always has a knife on him [something about his wife ordering a million packages that always need opened] so he was pumped to get a new one. Whether he’s using it to open your boxes or on a little more manly things uut in the wild, it’s a gift he’ll use on repeat.

And now for the big shabang — the jaw dropper gift, the “I WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER” statement maker, this YETI Roadie 20 Cooler. While you may melt his heart with this one, you won’t be melting ice [literally, it holds ice for DAYS]. This is the perfect size to pack up and go on your next outing!

There you have it ladies — several ideas that are sure to put a smile on his face this holiday season! Oh and hey, don’t forget about yourself while shopping for him “One for you, two for me…” 😉 My outfit in today’s post is also from Backcountry and consists of two items I L-O-V-E: Lole Gisele Original Down Jacket [size up if in between, wearing in small] and these Sorel Womens Lexie Wedge Boot [true to size].

As much as I love shorts season [aka summer] I sometimes despise the actual “denim shorts season” itself. Shorts can be tricky. Sometimes they are too tight, too short, too loose and the list of all of the discomforts of shorts goes on. Today, we’re here to put some of those discomforts to rest and […]

If there’s one trend I’m happily hopping on board with, it’s the white sneaker rage. Maybe they never went out of style, maybe it’s more socially acceptable than ever to wear tennies with every. single. outfit. Either way, I’m here for it.

If there is one thing I have learned over the past year of life it is that 30 minutes on a bike can change your life in the best way possible. After years of hearing how great a workout on a stationary bike can be, Shawn & I finally decided to put the pedal to […]
