Let’s hear it for the boys! We received such a great response from our Girlfriend’s Guide To Gifting we knew we had to turn the tables and tackle Man-Gifting next. We ❤️our guys! Brothers, baes, dads, coworkers, coconspirators and exes who slid into the friend-zone: you are on our Christmas list. We are celebrating the strong, inspiring, smart, funny, goofy, dad-jean-wearing men in our lives with our Elum Guide To Man-Gifting. Read on to discover what we’re giving our guy crew this Holiday Season.
I’m With The Band
He played in a band in college, brings his guitar to backyard bbqs, and has held onto his vinyl record collection for so long that it’s now hip again. He’s our I’m With The Band guy and we love him because he’s a musician and a dreamer and the last of the mix tape makers. We’re giving our music man a Crosley Portable Record Player so he can take the party with him wherever he goes, the gorgeous 10th Anniversary Edition of Led Zeppelin When Giants Walked The Earth, and a little gold dust with our very own California Foil Letterpress Art Print. #LetTheMusicPlay
The Honey Do-er
We all need a Honey Do-er in our lives. Who else is going to help us put up the bathroom shelves, switch out the fan belt in our car and haul eighty pounds of Saltillo tiles from the hardware store? We may know our way around a fuse box here at Elum but it doesn’t stop us appreciating the Honey Do-ers in our lives. This year we’re giving them the Find Your Lost Keys Bluetooth Keychain, our Naughty But Nice Big Stick Note Bar and a Magnogrip Magnetic Wristband. He’ll never lose a key, an idea or screw ever again! #TripleWin
We love our Chef because he feeds us! Sunday morning will find him at the farmer’s market talking hot sauce with local producers. Sunday evening will find him putting that hot sauce to good use in his made-from-scratch chili rellenos. The Chef knows that eggplant is called aubergine in England and the real way to a girl’s heart is through her taste buds. This year we are gifting our Chef with a bar of steel soap (to remove the smell of chopped onions from his hands), his very own Nanopresso Portable Expresso Maker and our Hello Sunshine Mug. What’s for dinner, hon?
Cause the player’s gonna play…his Xbox. Or Sony Playstation or Nintendo Switch. We all know a Player, right? It’s the weekend and he’s on the couch. Family size bag of Cheetos, comfy pants, Call of Duty on the console: the Player is in the zone. We love our Player because we always know where he is on Friday nights and if we ever get lost in an underground maze he’s the one who will find the way out! We are lighting up our Players this Christmas with the Pac-Man Ghost Lamp. And we are on top of our Player’s birthday in 2020 when we plan on giving him the amazing hand-cranked handheld Playdate accompanied by our adorable Gamer Birthday Card. #LeveledUp
Is there premium brand moisturizer in his bathroom cabinet? Is that bathroom cabinet located in a chic downtown loft? If you answer yes to both questions chances are you have a Metro Man on your hands. We love our Metro Men because they always know the hottest rez for cocktails and apps, appreciate us in our little black dresses, and can talk about anything from European economic policy to the best strain of hops for IPAs. Man smells good, looks good and talks good. We’re gifting him with one of our Greeting Card Subscriptions because you know he likes to keep on top of birthdays and celebrations, a bottle of ten year Talisker Whiskey because single malt is where it’s at, baby, and an ultra cool urban backpack.
No one loves you like your Dad. He cheered you through all your soccer matches and gave the world’s most effective stink eye to your prom date. You’ll always be his princess and he’ll always be your dad. We know if we ask Dad what he wants for Christmas or Hanukkah he’ll say, “Nothing. You being here is enough.” but we’re rolling the ball anyway! We’re keeping it simple, delicious and heartfelt. We’re giving him Goldbelly’s famous BBQ Box Subscription so he can have his #1 favorite food throughout the year, a monthly membership to the Beer Club and our Louie Award Winning You’re All That Card because Dad. Is. All. That. #LoveYouPops
