Welcome to the one post that I dread writing most every year. Stuff B Wants is like pulling teeth. You can see the post from last year that I said pretty much the same thing. Oh you can also see from last year that many of these gifts are repeats. Because 1)boys are boring and 2)B never gets anything for himself. One of those is sad. Feel free to buy something for B and make the sad face go away.
Here is my annual disclaimer if you are looking for a gift for your man person and found yourself here (I’m sorry). B likes sports, beer and man things. He does not know what AG jeans are. He does not wear any sort of wrist decoration. His “fancy” sunglasses are Oakley and you will not find him in da club. Like ever. If that sounds like your man person, let’s do this.
What do you know. A drill. Is it the same drill from last year’s list? Almost. It’s just the newer model. Every time I ask B what he wants, this is the first thing he says. I don’t know WHAT on earth he is drilling (that’s what she said). But apparently it’s something that is very far away from outlets. It MUST be wireless he says. So if your male has a drill and it has a wire, maybe he wants this? B says so.
Ok this one is being posted by popular request. Many of you have actually told me that this underwear changed your male’s life (sounds like I’m talking about a cat when I keep saying male). B is very proud of this fact. This underwear comes in a plastic package and you can get it at walmart. Probably even the grocery store. We roll fancy around here. We also never say roll. I also sort of just wanted to post this picture.
B is 6’4” and broad. Nothing fits him. NOTHING. It drives everyone crazy who tries to buy him something ever. Either the sleeves are too short or the length shrinks or the arm holes are too narrow. Whatever. It’s a pain. J.Crew tall seems to be the only one that gets it right. Because B is not really BIG and tall. Just tall. This is getting uncomfortable. Whatever. J.Crew does the job.
I know, you’re like…”please MODG. B? Wants a slow cooker?” Let me tell you something. Without said slow cooker (and without said Pinterest) B would not eat. So yes, B wants a slow cooker. The problem with ours is that on the lowest setting it cooks very hot. This one you can set the temperature manually and check the temperature of your meat with the included thermometer. Or it can just shut off at the right temp. It’s genius and not that expensive. We …I mean B, wants this.
OMG, if I have to hear about the Nest thermostat one more time. B says, Nest is advertising on ESPN! B says, Lowes is having a super special on Nest. B says, Nest is really everywhere. This is probably his number 1 gift. Why? It saves you money. And that my friends, is all any regular dude wants. To save money. For those of you who don’t know, this thermostat is made by the smarties from Apple. It learns your behavior in a creepy cool robot sort of way and adjusts temperature to your behavior. It prints our reports, it makes suggestions, it wipes your butt. It’s awesome, I have to agree. NEST NEST NEST for president!
B wants ….ok I can’t do it this time. I want an immersion blender and forgot to put it on my list. It comes in pink. Enough said.
B got a Sonicare toothbrush from his dentist friend when we first started dating. Um, like 10 years ago. It’s probably his number 1 favorite gift ever. B has good teeth though so maybe he’s on to something. Finally he needs a new one. Probably because he changed the brush head like twice in 2 years. Apparently they are “pricey”.
Ok you sold us. MANY of you told us to tell our Magic Bullet to beat it and get on board with the NINJA! HI YA! I’ll be honest, things with the name ninja always get me. B makes a smoothie like daily and he’s on board too. NINJA FOR THE WIN
Ok this is almost 300 dollars. B doesn’t know he wants it, which is good since he’s not getting it. But I promise you, he wants it. It’s the whiskey advent calendar! For your favorite drunk! Shoot down a bottle of whiskey every day until Christmas to erase the pain of your life. Happy holidays!
and there you have it. Love it or hate it, this is really B’s list. I don’t try and get all creative and fancy with these lists, I just show you what we actually want or are giving. I hope this helps make your holidays a little less stabby this year.
Operation WANA is SO close. Hang tight everyone.
Your man gift referral list was brought to you by the awesome geniuses at Turning Art. This is seriously the coolest gift that I would LOVE to get. Can I tell you how many times I’ve gone to buy art for my house and had to get it framed for a billion dollars or go buy a dumb Ikea frame that fits nothing and 3 months later hang it only to hate it? This service starts at 10 bucks a month and let’s you rotate REAL grownup art in your house ..FRAMED! When you find something you like you can buy it at a discount. Or you can keep switching it up. I’m giving this as a gift to someone for 3 months (30 dollars total). It’s so creative. And shipping is free. Have I said I love this yet?
