Gift Guide: Him

Gift-Guide-Him-poorandpretty

Is it just me, or is it really hard to shop for guys? If you’re having trouble too, here are a few things I’ve found across the interwebs for the dude(s) in your life!

1. Beer Making Kits from Brooklyn Brewshop. 2. The Gentlemen’s Deck via Cool Material — so he can play cards and learn how to tie a windsor knot and spit-shine his shoes at the same time! 3. Toy Soldier Bookends via Urban Outfitters. 4. Chef Salts via Fab — to spice up his grilling (or give him the hint that it’s his turn to cook ;). 5. All-natural After Shave Lotion by Sam’s Natural; Stan loves this stuff because it moisturizes and doesn’t burn. 6. 3-Pack Men’s Socks by PACT Apparel — made with organic cotton and without sweatshops. 7. Capsul Wallet by Capsul/Toboggan Design — this is a fantastically durable, minimalistic wallet made from recyclable & non-toxic polypropylene. I have one that I use for business cards! 8. Kitten Brains Skinny Tie by sugarplum USA. If your man isn’t man enough to wear this kitty tie, he isn’t man enough for you.

Guest Post: Stan on what to get your guy for Valentine’s Day

Hello readers! Stan here, with a few ideas about what to get your male significant other for the upcoming holiday of looove. It’s only 10 days away!

stan's valentine gifts for your guy - poor & pretty

1. Sam’s Natural bath & body products. Sami gifted me the Simple Start Hygiene Bundle from Sam’s Natural, and I use it regularly, especially the Slick Shave Soap and After Shave. They provide a much more comfortable shave than any store products I’ve tried, and the aftershave smells great and moisturizes well. It’s nice to receive a gift that I enjoy using. Plus, they use all-natural ingredients, so I know I’m not putting garbage into my body.

2. Dollar Shave Club membership. Dollar Shave Club allows your guy to receive a fresh shipment of shaving razors every month so he doesn’t have to spend a fortune on them in-store. There are several blade types to choose from and you get a free handle with your first shipment. To top it off, he’ll get an ego-boosting postcard with each month’s razors. Also, their ad is hilarious:

3. Sun Jar. A sun jar is a frosted glass jar with a light inside of it. It’s powered by a battery connected to a solar panel. During the day, you leave it in bright sunlight to charge up and at night, it produces hours of soft lighting. It makes for a less practical gift but is interesting, inexpensive, and unusual.

4. iPad smart case. If your guy has an iPad and hasn’t tried out the Apple Smart Case for it, I strongly recommend it. The “Smart Cover” only protects the front and leaves you carefully placing your iPad down to avoid scratches. The Smart Case lets you close it up like a book and toss it in the passenger seat or in a backpack and not worry about it.

5. Electric tea kettle. These will boil a cup or two of water in about a minute — great if he’s just looking to drink some tea and not engage in a lengthy ritual every time. As a guy who enjoys hot beverages, I was very happy to receive one of these as a gift!
