Gifts for Him: Etsy Finds #etsy #giftsforhim #giftguide

In addition to my gift guide this year, I'm doing a few roundups of my favorite Etsy finds for Him, Her and the kiddos! Today is the Gifts for Him: Etsy Finds edition!

Dell Cove Spices is a shop on Etsy that I found a few years ago, and I order something from them every year for my husbands stocking. Last year, I ordered popcorn seasonings and we loved them!

Coffee mugs are always an easy gift idea, but finding ones that are whimsical or hip can be a challenge. I love this one from Lenny Mud.


Every few years, my husbands wallet looks a little worn. I have so many of them in my favorites on Etsy, but this one from Sewlutions by Amo stands out. It is intricately and expertly crafted, and beautiful in its design.

Funky tshirts are something that always get rolled up and put in my husbands stocking. Banyan Tree Clothing has great options, including this vintage ship tee.

And, while my husband has yet to come over to the dark side of technology and embrace the wonderful iPhone, I love unique docking stations. This concrete iPhone docking station by fmcdesign is minimalist and pure.

In the past, I've found lovely pocket squares and handmade ties, as well as edibles for my husband for Christmas. Etsy is such a wonderful place to shop, where you know the items are handmade with care, and an extreme amount of attention to detail paid.

Sixth Wedding Anniversary Gifts for Him #giftguide

Each year, I am tasked with finding something really cool to give my husband for our wedding anniversary. Last year it was a hand stamped wooden box (5th anniversary traditional: wood) with a silver mechanical watch (modern: silver).

This year for our sixth wedding anniversary the themes are iron and candy. Finally, an easy one!


When it comes to iron options for Him, I really love the titanium ring with ironwood inner band on the top right. It's absolutely gorgeous, and I'm definitely drawn to it much like the ebony wood with turquoise inlay.

Tiger iron cufflinks are another chic option for him, especially if he's a business man. I love giving him cufflinks so this is definitely a great option.

For something vintage, there are tonnes of iron bottle openers on Etsy. I remember my Dad had one of these in our basement, a Coca-Cola one actually, and I always thought it was a really charming fixture. It was never used, but it was just a neat piece of unique wall art.

And...if your husband is a golfer, a new iron might be in the books. This has definitely been a front runner in terms of ideas over the past few months, but really...what do I know about buying him a golf club!?

In terms of candy, clearly you've got to give him his favorites and for my husband that is hands down fuzzy peaches. I always put a bag of them in his Christmas stocking and last year, he made the mistake of sharing with Owen...who now loves "Daddy's special candy." Whoops!

The Hubs Turns 30, gift guide for Him

Turing 30 is kind of a big deal, right? Well, if my husband had his way, we wouldn't even be celebrating, but let's be serious here...who do you think makes the party decisions in our house? {bingo! Me!}

Part of the fun is choosing the perfect gift for the birthday boy. And when I say fun, I really mean months of agonizing over what would be good, what just won't work and then sometimes finding out that he already went out and bought it for himself. He's seriously difficult to buy for, so this year I've created a top 5 list of choices and hopefully one of them will be the right one!

A friend pinned this idea for 60 letters for a 60th birthday when she was planning her husband's party earlier this year and I thought it was really lovely. While I don't have 30 years of memories with my husband, this would be a great group project to involve his parents, brother, cousins, aunts and uncles, grandparents.

Cufflinks are my typical go-to gift for my husband, however now that he works for himself he rarely wears a french cuff. I'd love for him to get back to it, and these mother of pearl inlay wooden cufflinks are beautiful.

When I was looking at stocking stuffers last Christmas, I had the brilliant idea of getting him scotch accessories since that is his drink. I really love the idea of these stones by Polar Stones, though I think Hubs likes it when the ice melts and dilutes his scotch a little.

He is my only, and certainly my favorite. This card is intended to be a Valentine's Card, however I think it is cheeky and whimsical and perfect for a special birthday.

And lastly, a vintage .5L scotch decanter. I really love this one and all of the cut glass. Right now, Hubs just keeps his scotch in the original bottle in the cupboard, but I love the idea of having a bar cart or shelf, and having his scotch displayed in a decanter like this one.
