The Ultimate Gift Guide For Your Special Guy

Here's the Ultimate Gift Guide for that extra special guy in your life!


Christmas shopping for guys is about as hard as trying to find the perfect Major in college.

Every year, I always go through the last minute struggle of trying to figure out what to give my boyfriend or my guy friends for Christmas.

Shopping for guys is already hard enough and with the added pressure of it being Christmas, it seems impossible to give them a gift that they will actually appreciate and use.

After my countless years of struggling to buy my boyfriend gifts, I created the Ultimate Gift Guide for the special guy in your life. This Gift Guide is just a general overview of the kinds of gifts guys would like, so feel free to adjust it based on your boyfriend's or friend's personality and hobbies!

1. Wallet

The most basic gift you can give any guy is a new wallet. This is always my go-to gift for guys when I'm exactly sure what to get them!

2. Cologne

This is also another one of my go-to gifts for my boyfriend! I'm super picky about the scents he wears, so just to make his life a little easier, I usually get him a bottle of my favorite cologne! If you're not exactly sure what scent to get, I would recommend buying a gift set of cologne.

3. Whiskey Lovers Kit

If you're 21+, a Whiskey Lover Kit is another go-to gift for a boyfriend, father or grandfather.

4. Watch

A watch is always my last resort gift for a guy. This gift takes a little more thought about what sense of style they have and how often they where watches.

5. Socks

When I'm in the last minute panic about buying Christmas gifts, socks are always my first option.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
