Christmas Gifts for Men

We were introduced to Mustardseed & Moonshine botanical ceramics in South Africa.  This handmade collection of over 300 pieces is botanically correct in every way.  These ceramics are delicate and absolutely beautiful.  Perfect for the nature lover!

The Tivoli Audio iPal Portable Audio Laboratory AM/FM Radio gets five stars from everyone who’s heard it.  We love its retro look, and the sound is fantastic.  It is small (3” x 6”), with a rechargeable battery that has 16 hours of play.  There is a mini-cable to connect an iPod.  $219.99.

Like things up close and personal?  This cool little bird feeder sticks to your window so you get a bird’s eye view!  It has a double-sided suction cup and the recyclable plastic will withstand extreme temperatures and UV rays.  There is a drainage hole at the bottom of the base.  Because it is designed for small birds, larger ones, like pigeons, are not able to get at the food.  Squirrels?  Ha!  They’d have to be able to climb up glass to get to it.  $19.50.

Stephanie Johnson designs travel bags.  She has 36 different shapes and sizes of make-up cases, iPad cases, jewelry rolls – any kind of travel bag you can think of.  Choose your shape, then choose among 38 fabrics. Prices range from $30 – $82.

These charming sterling silver necklaces are delicate chains with a tassel at one end and a vintage charm at the other.  Choose a turtle, owl or fish charm.  $95 each.

This is a wonderful site – worth browsing for gift ideas.  Design stationary for everyone on your gift list.  There are over 240 icons, borders and other designs to choose from. 20 cards for $78.00.

These mini rechargeable magnetic iHome speakers work for any audio source with a 3.5mm headphone jack – laptops, iPads, iPhones, MP3 players, cellphones etc.  They are portable, have fantastic sound, have a long lasting lithium battery and a magnetic base which keeps the speakers together for travel.  They come in a travel pouch. $44.97.

When Parents Text by Lauren Kaelin & Sophia Fraioli is a collection of the ‘best’ from my FAVORITE website.  Read our earlier article about this hilarious website that pokes fun at us poor parents with poor texting abilities.  $9.00.

This one happens to be my personal favorite!  $10.50.

We love this “pill” carafe from Z Gallerie.  The blue is our favorite, the price is excellent, and the best part – it holds a 16 oz water bottle perfectly!  This is great for a bedside table in a guest room, or your bedroom. $7.95.

Three sizes of monogrammed and color coordinated zipper cases make great gifts.  They are hand-blocked and have a water-resistant lining.  They can be used for everything from cosmetics to art supplies. The stripes and Indian print fabrics are lovely.  Choose your own monogram font and thread color. $7.00 – $12.00.

Dabney Lee’s custom paper placemats are $40 for 25.  Choose from over 60 designs and add a monogram or name.  They are delightful.  Extend their lifespan by having them laminated.

Custom heavy paperboard coasters are $45 for 100 coasters.  Choose from a variety of monograms and motifs. They offer both round and square coasters.

For the man in your life, these shark socks are great!  $9.00 a pair.

Call me crazy but I love this lollipop holder by Jonathan Adler.  I would use it to serve anything on a stick – hors d’oeuvres, cake pops, fruit, and my favorite, candy! $98.00.

Know a fella who loves wildlife?  This stapler is for him. Crocodile stapler $85.00.

We love this monogram acrylic necklace. It comes in three sizes, small (1”), medium (1.25”) and large (1 5/8”).  The large is their biggest seller.  Choose among eleven colors, and script or block.  It comes on a sterling silver chain that is 16” – 19” with extender.  They also offer a gold-filled chain for the same price upon request. $58.00 Please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery.

Give the gift of flowers.  Just pop open this little can, add some water and sunshine and soon you’ll see flowers. The can is 3.5” tall and $14.00.

Is there a traveler on your list who is in a tangle with all their ‘stuff’?  Give them a Grid-it.  It’s an organizing board that really works.  It comes in five colors.  $14.95.

They also have an iPad case with a board to hold all its accessories and more.  There are so many slots that for travel, add your vitamin bottle, exercise watch, business cards, whatever.  It comes in black, grey or red at $24.99
