If you’re anything like me, you struggle to buy gifts for him. Guys are incredibly difficult to shop for, and I can only give him so many nice sweaters before he starts to notice.

Every man needs a good quality wallet. And there’s always a good way to give a wallet as a present. You can stuff the inside with either gift card to his favorite restaurant and of course he would have to take you with him or you could stuff it with cute little coupon vouchers for different things you know he likes. A cool way to do this, is if you have a bad habit he doesn’t like, give him vouchers for that. Maybe a movie night where you can’t talk or interrupt. Or a special dinner cooked at home just by you. May be you where his favorite lingerie for a night free of interruptions. The possibilities are endless.
For our long distance couples on a budget (shoutout to those college struggles), a very cute thing to do is reasons why I love you or open when letters. It’s a creative way to show him how much he means to you even though you can’t be there with him. The longer you’ve been dating, the easier they are to write. Being able to gauge his reaction, you can write one for when:
-when he misses you
-when you aren’t answering the phone
-when you are mad
-when you are sad
-when you are bored
-when you’ve had a rough day
-when someone pissed you off at work
-when he wishes you were there
-when you’re mad at him
-when he is mad at you
-when you’re stressed
-when you’re sick
-when you need to know why I love you
And I like to add little things in mine. So for the rough day, maybe add a little piece of candy to make his day better. When he misses you, maybe include something with your perfume on it. When sick, include some cough drops. Adding a little something extra will make his day just a touch better when you can’t be there with him.
A must-have for any guy. If he isn’t fashionable, then we need to make him fashionable. Real relationships have passes the time of constantly wearing sneakers. It is now time to invest in real shoes, and let’s face it, the shoes are always nicer when we are the ones picking them. Here are some nice boot ideas and maybe pair it with a nice watch to make your man leave the house in style. Also, if you throw in a nice pair of sunglasses you might have to watch out because he is going to be so fly that all of the girls are going to want him, and you’ll win the best girlfriend ever award.
There are two things I am obsessed with and that is stylish men and traveling. If you put those two together, there is literally nothing better – unless you add me to the mix. Haha. A must-have for all men is a nice travel bag that looks good and can stand up to constant travel, because we all want a life that includes constant travel. (If you don’t, there is something wrong with you). So this bag is beautiful and I love it!
