Simone is a public relations and marketing pro who knows how to find the perfect gift, for the perfect budget. She’s been blogging about gift-giving since 2008. Find her insights and ideas on her blog, http://honeebeegifts.blogspot.com. When she isn’t blogging or finding the perfect gift, you can find her enjoying the arts, good food, and working with several community nonprofits.
The HoneeBee Gift Guide is here to help you pick out the perfect gift for everyone on your list. This sweet guide will include a few gift ideas for your mother, your hubby, the little ones and everyone in between.For himThis leather money clip by Bosca is simple yet elegant. It fulfills its purpose in a sophisticated way. Enough said. This cashmere sweater by J CREW is an investment piece and will look great year after year. It comes in various colors including "the basics" like black, gray and navy but extends its color palette with surprising options like heather peacock (shown above).
Nike has done it again with LunarGuide+ 3. The site speaks of its plush cushioning and enhanced support and reviews seem to support its claims. This would be great for an active guy.
There's something about the right timepiece on a man, isn't it? This stainless steel stunner is from the Invicta Men's II Collection and can match a suit with ease...and shake up any casual look too.If food is the way to a man's heart, I think music comes close behind. Give your guy the gift of music with iTunes but don't stop at a gift card. Take it old school, with a modern tech twist by creating your own playlist for your him. Just go to iTunes, purchase a gift, pick your songs and iTunes will send him an email alert about the gift, which then allows him to download the music to his very own device or an iTunes library.Bzzz: I'd like to give a special thanks to all my guy friends that helped me out on this one. I wanted to be sure I was going in the right direction:) I must say that guys are so easy going when it comes to gifts!
