The best gift-giving advice we ever heard:
Instead of buying men gifts you think they'll like because you do,
buy them something they'll actually use in their day-to-day lives.
Brilliant. We highly recommend you use this blog as a gift-giving manifesto. And if that means sharing it with someone who buys the worst gifts for you, so be it.
Let's answer a few questions first:
Who is the gift for? Is it a friend, a significant other, a wanna-be significant other, your dad, your boss, your son? Yourself?
How much do you want to spend? Obviously, you'll spend a little more on a significant other (or yourself) than you will your boss-unless your bucking for a promotion. So set limits and stick to them. The good news is-we've designed holiday sets that can meet your budget and make you look like a hero.
What might this person use in his everyday life? That's the million-dollar question. Does he have a beard? Is he in college or soon to be starting out into the world? Is he one of those guys whose skin could use some TLC but he'd never buy it for himself? Does he work out, does he have expensive taste, does he seem like the man who already has everything?
Ok, now you're ready to shop.
The Jack Black® holiday kits are pretty genius. As a matter of fact, you may find yourself tempted to buy one for someone else, one for you. That's one option-the other is to make sure everyone who might buy you a gift knows about Jack Black.
