Looking for a present for the man who has everything? Don't fret, we've got you covered with great gifts for any type of guy this year.
You know him better than anyone else, so why is so hard to figure out what he wants for the holidays?! Never fear; let us be your personal shoppers. We've zeroed in on nine of the most specific types of guys — from sports fans to sartorialists — and picked presents that will bring joy to your boyfriend's world, whether he's been naughty or nice.
While all of the cheer and good will can be exciting, the holiday season can certainly be stressful, too. Between the exhausting schedule of holiday parties and the confusion of gift-giving etiquette, December festivities can feel like quite a burden. Add to that a new relationship, and you can easily find yourself screaming “BAH HUMBUG” instead of humming along to “It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year.”
The holidays are upon us! I can guarantee you we aren't the only parents bracing ourselves to be buried in plastic, battery-sucking toys with flashing lights and other items that our 19-month-old daughter will play with a few times and then abandon.
It's the holiday season (yay! This girl *me* loves some pink holiday corporate cocktails!), and you are probably thinking a few things: 1. I should be paid more - will I get a bonus? 2. I can just sort-of ... slide downhill. Take some calls, avoid some clients, and focus on the holidays parties (and avoiding my family). Now is the time to online shoe shop! 3. I'm too busy to think about my next career move! (But reviews are kind of stressing me out - I need that bonus!)
Shopping for holiday gifts is notoriously stressful, especially when (like most people) you save it all for post-Thanksgiving. That’s where Cyber Monday comes in: you can take advantage of all the deals Black Friday has to offer, with none of the frustration of unruly crowds and the impossible quest for a parking spot. On the Monday after Thanksgiving, e-commerce sites offer some of their best discounts of the year (free shipping in time for the holidays often sweetens the deal), making it simple and painless to find a gift your significant other will actually love instead of settling for something second-rate just so you can escape the mall and call it a day. We pre-scoured this year's Cyber Monday offerings to help you narrow down your choices and get him something that will score you a mistletoe-worthy smooch this year.
The year-end holidays are around the corner. November and December are stressful months as families prepare for feasting, exchanging presents and celebrating another year. For many singles, however, family gatherings can be painful — especially if parents, siblings or well-meaning relatives wonder why you're not "with someone."
Planning on venturing out with your partner on Black Friday to make a dent in your holiday shopping? Congratulations: you're braver than me. Shopping with your significant other can be a difficult task even in the best of times; holiday shopping under pressure — with frantic shoppers shoving you aside to nab the last $2 countertop appliance — can be a recipe for a relationship disaster. Have you seen Walmart at midnight on Black Friday? It's enough to drive even the most loving, centered couple to the brink of bitter, nasty bickering.
