A VERY LATE AND LAST MINUTE HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE FOR THE LONG TERM CITY BOY/HUBBY IN YOUR LIFE 2019

I created a gift guide for women in my last post. I held on to this one nice and tight because I didn’t want to be called a pick me (yes, I do care about what my girls think), but the reception I received gave me the courage to go ahead and let this one go. I’m a perfectionist and that often leads to a more expensive, thoughtful gift. Ladies, I advise you to be discerning in your Christmas shopping this year. If you haven’t bought his gift already, you’re still on the fence about something. That ain’t none of my business though…

If your man is more than deserving and you’re just a procrastinating ole heifer, below are some gift ideas based on what your boothang likes to do. All of these products can be bought in-store.

HE LIKES TO DRANK…

COOPER & THIEF RED BLEND ($19)

This was recommended by my cousin, Courtney. She is pretty serious about her wine. Follow her on IG @cupofconsuella or on her blog (click the link). This is red wine and bourbon combined.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for Nintendo Switch ($60) If he doesn’t have the system already, this gift is a dub. This is also not the year to do a 2 in 1.

HE LIKES STUFF THAT NOT TOO MANY OTHER MEN LIKE…

The Water Dancer by Ta-Nehisi Coates($15)

HE LIKES TO LOOK FLY…

We’re not buying shoes over here. Accessories are equally as drippy.

iPhone 11 Pro Max Leather Case ($50), silicone version ($40) here, Amazon version ($12) for my frugal queens below.

Saint Laurent Pebble Grain Leather Wallet ($385) or a cheaper Zara ($20) version below because I know y’all thought I lost my mind. Don’t let him put anything in your big purse he was just talking shit about, there’s not a shortage of wallets.

TOM FORD Oud Wood ($150), Paco Rabanne’s 1 Million ($70) is for your man who wants to smell good but hasn’t fully tapped into his grown man yet. I had an ex that wore this often, and I would stare at him all night.

I was serious about discernment earlier. I don’t want to be too preachy, but Christmas is the holiday most of us go above and beyond for some crusty asshole who hasn’t earned it. I too have been a clown on the gift giving tip *hold hands with you in solidarity*. However, there’s no reason to keep your dollars and pennies to yourself with a man in your life that is reciprocating or contributing when and where he can. If that’s what you have at home, insert that chip in and throw away the receipt boo.

When or if you buy anything on this list, please take a picture or record his reaction and tag me. I love to see men happy!
