For the Boys (See Jane Gift)

Shopping for men is never easy.  I know there are a million other gift guides out there (and they're all awesome and great for ideas) but I thought I'd make one for the guys--they're a tough bunch!  And seeing as I work in in industry that caters to them, I thought I'd add some of my expertise.


1. Trunk Club gift card - Give the gift of style AND work directly with me--what a win-win situation!*
2. Beer glasses - Apparently Eric is too good to drink his craft beers out of my stemless wine glasses.
3. Club Monaco Pocket Square - Pocket squares for men are like necklaces for women--a great way to add some personality to any outfit (or blazer).
4. J. Crew Leather Dopp Kit - Because the toothpaste-stained nylon one he owns embarrasses you every time at the airport.
5. Mossimo socks - We sell fun socks at Trunk Club and well, guys just love 'em.
6. Leatherman Pocket Tool - My dad never leaves home without his Leatherman, which is a solid endorsement if I've ever heard of one.
7. Mr. Bar-B-Q Grill Set - Time to man the grill, man.
8. J. Crew Leather iPhone Case - For those prone to dropping/shattering.
9. Mougin & Piquard x J. Crew watch - A stylish yet relatively inexpensive watch says, 'I care, but not enough to get you a Rolex."
10. 'How to Raise a Gentleman' - In case he's not sure (hey, we could all use some tips)...

*If you want to be sure the man (and you) in your life works with me, please reference my blog or name (Anna Jane) when you sign up.  Or email me directly: anna@trunkclub.com

Can't wait to have a man so I can sign him up for Trunk Club! And I just love that little CM pocket square.

I love that watch. But the funny part is that I actually love it more for myself!

This is so great. Let's hear it for the boys! :) They are hard to shop for but these suggestions are so fun and things that I like also which is always a plus!

Men are so hard to shop for. Thankfully my boyfriend has been hinting for months at what he wants! Otherwise, I'd definitely take your advice and go with something on this list.

One of the best gift guides I've seen yet, Jane! Love all your suggestions, especially the fun socks - my husband is not a very fashion-forward kind of guy but even he is jumping on the fun sock trend! I bet you have so much fun making guys look and feel good - what a great job!

Great ideas! It's guys that are often hardest to shop for. Love those socks! And that grill set would get used often in my household.

Katherine said...

ok...you got me. after all the blog gift guides i've seen so far, nothing has stuck out to me for a gift for my husband until now. he's been complaining for months about all the new clothes he's in need of and how he has zero time to go shopping. trunk club gift card it is!!

Pam said...

Love the phone case!!! Has anyone seen this in person? Just wondering if it is bulky?? Thanks!
