#1 YSL L’Homme | Hands down the best cologne around! It smells SO good – and I never get tired of smelling it. Oh! And it is one that John mutually loves too, lol. 🙂
#2 Burberry Tie | I got John this tie years ago and he wears it for all of his important meetings and presentations for residency. It’s his go-to tie because it’s simple and classy.. and is not a fuss to wear or style. I think this is a staple for his closet.
#3 Vineyard Vines | John actually got this shirt for his graduations this weekend! It is more beautiful in person. It’s so vibrant and the fit is perfect. I
#4 Charger Storage Wrap | How cool is this?! It’s perfect for a guy on the go or who loves to travel. We always joke that chargers, ear buds, etc. are annoying to travel w/bc they get lost or tangled so this is genius.
#5 SWIMS | Okay, if you are doing anything involving water this summer these are a MUST. John got these randomly a year or so ago for a beach trip and he told me that they are his faves to wear ALL the time – not just beach. He got a second pair and even got a pair for his best friend!
#6 Personalized Case | I got this for John this year because we go to Dallas a lot and it’s perfect for throwing in toiletries- but is also manly enough w/the monogram.
#7 VV Golf Tie | John’s getting this for Father’s Day! He likes anything w/golf on it!
#8 Portable Speaker by Bose | No explanation needed here right?! These things are the bomb.com. We have two in our house – one in our room and one in our kitchen. If your guy likes music at all, this is a great gift.
#9 Jack Black Shaving Kit | I got this for my dad this weekend in Dallas. It’s nothing crazy unique but he loves this brand and their products for shaving and hydration. I really like their chapstick, too!
#10 Men’s Clarisonic | LOL. Funny story… Their PR team reached and asked if I wanted one for Father’s Day and I ran it by John and he said “no” and I was like “okay then!” – bc Clarisonics are the best! Well, they sent one anyway and I thought I’d give it to my dad so I left it out in the kitchen and I came home to John using it…. I was like “wait I thought you didn’t like these?!” And he had like 4 excuses as to why he does like them and why he changed his mind, lol! I think it helps that it’s not PINK or called a ‘MIA’! 🙂 It’s got a manly look and is great for guys that have acne or just care about having clean, fresh skin.
Since we are talking about Father’s Day I thought I’d share some sweet photos I found on my phone last night of John w/Luke. Father’s day takes on a whole new meaning having John as a father to Luke (not just Fitz, but he is a great dad to Fitzy too!) These are all grainy iPhone pix but I thought they were really sweet and I wanted to share. I’m fortunate to have John and my dad in my life – my dad has been so helpful w/Luke as well. For the first 5 weeks, every Friday after work my dad would drive in and spend the weekend w/us.
