Gift Guide: Neal’s Favorite Things + Gifts For Him!

(Old photo, so can’t link, sorry! But everything I’m wearing is from Bonobos, and there are lots of similar items linked below!) 

Hi everyone!

Neal here.  Excited to be hitting publish on our 2021 “For the Guys” gift guide. If you’ve been around here for a while (thank you) you’ll recognize this same format from years past. Just like “Jess’ Favorite Things” guide, we bring you “Neal’s Favorite Things” today. We put a lot of time and effort into it (and had fun doing it!) because 1. I feel like every guy is hard to buy for and 2. if my name is on anything on this blog, I’m not half-assing it!

Whether you’re shopping for your significant other, father, father in law, grandpa, brother, friend, coworker, whoever–I think you’ll find some great ideas here! Every single item you’ll find here is either something I already own or something I really want. From small businesses to my favorite larger retailers, you’ll find a little bit of everything below.

We’ve made this easy and broken the post up into quick-shop categories. Just click the category you want to peruse first, and you’ll be taken straight there.

I realize that this is a list of material items recommended for purchase (stay tuned for our “experience” gift guide coming soon), but I truly hope that a few of these ideas can help you spread a little love and make someone feel special this holiday season.

Thank you for following along and making the GG possible.  Your support of my wife means more than you know.  Happy Holidays! (And happy holiday shopping.)
