This time of year everyone is very busy running around trying to keep up and get things done. So we thought we would put together a few suggestions and created a few gift guides that we will be posting here on the blog each week for the month of December.

So, by now you have probably taken care of the “big” gift. But what about the stockings? “Oh, the stockings!”, you say. You know, the thing you forgot to plan for, that has you running to your nearest drugstore, frantically looking for something that doesn’t look like you bought it at the drugstore? No? Never happens to you? Right, not us either. *blush*

Well, just in case you are looking for something thoughtful and unique, we at re-souL have some great ideas; paper goods, socks, wallets, shoe care products are just to name a few. See you soon!

Still stumped? Here’s some more gift ideas for you.

This time of year everyone is very busy running around trying to keep up and get things done. So we thought we would put together a few suggestions and created a few gift guides that we will be posting here on the blog each week for the month of December.

This week we focus on the guys. Besides an exquisite pair of new shoes, we think accessories are key! Because most men like to wear their things to the ground before replacing them, we are suggesting some great looking personal items for your favorite guy on your shopping list. Whether it’s a brand new watch, an oiled canvas backpack, a handsome leather wallet or just some really fun socks, we got you covered. See you soon?

Have a great rest of the week!

Holiday Gifts for Him

Because sometimes it’s harder to come up with gifts for the gentlemen in your life, we have come up with a holiday gift guide just for the dudes.

GUYS HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE

> When looking at your phone to get the time is not quite good enough, may we suggest a stylish modern time piece from Alessi? Their watches are well designed and make a smart looking accessory.

> Speaking of smart, how about a smart looking tote to haul all of his stuff? Winter Session totes are produced and made here in the USA, Denver to be exact. Their mission is to “design and produce thoughtful, well-made things in a responsible manner.” You can’t argue with that philosophy.

> Is it time for a new wallet?  When an old boring billfold will just not do, a Jfold wallet will make a strong impression. When it comes out of  his pocket it will  say, ” Yeah, I’m cool.”

> Have a mountain man in your life? Okay, maybe he just likes to act like one?  Wolverine boots are good looking and can withstand a 1000 miles. For reals, it says so right on the boots.

> Here is a great stocking stuffer!  A shoe care kit by Otterwax will keep his shoe collection looking like new. No more excuses!

> Did he play with a Rubix as a kid? The Cubebot from Areaware will keep him entertained at his desk for at least an hour. Time him as he tries to get the robot back into a cube. You may giggle at his expense, just a little.

> A busy business man needs a handsome bag to tote his laptop and files in style. We love this bag from Will Leather Goods.  It’s made to take a beating and will only get better with age.

> We have a manly collection of cuffs from In God We Trust, sans the skulls and spikes. (Not that there is anything wrong with that, of course.)

We hope your holiday season is going well, stay warm everybody!

Holiday Gifts: Stocking Stuffers

I don’t know about you, but when it comes to gift giving I usually do okay with the “big gift” during the holidays. Not so much when it comes to the stockings. I mean how many oranges, apples and nuts can one person get? (Atleast that’s what we used to get in ours when we were kids.)

Lucky for you we have some great ideas for filling your loved one’s stocking with some fun and useful gifts. All these gifts are under $25.00 which will make it easier on your wallet too. Click the orange links below for more information.

Holiday Gifts: Stocking Stuffers

1. Speaking of wallets, Mywalit makes a great ID version that comes in a variety of color combinations. He or she will never have to use that rubber band again. $22

2. For the person who wishes to have their shoes in tip-top shape, we recommend the great smelling all natural products from Otterwax. Their saddle soap and leather salve will make their shoes look like new again. $16 -$17

3. Do you have someone who needs a little motivation? The Daruma Wish Doll is the perfect gift for someone who is trying to attain their goal. Color in one eye to set your goal and Daruma will serve as your helpful reminder as they keep a watchful eye on you. Color in the second eye when you achieve your goal to remind you of how awesome you are. $8

4. Iris Guy Stacking Rings are for the ladies who love to layer their jewelry. These “pea” rings are a delicate oxidized sterling silver. They would look great with other stacking rings in her collection or just on their own. $22 each

5. Who doesn’t love socks? If you plan on giving them they might as well be fun. We love Hansel and Basel socks for their colorful patterns and textures. $12 -$15

6. The perfect fridge magnet! Super strong to hold up a dish towel or a massive 11×8 picture of you. This Areaware  Horsehoe magnet is so cool and it comes in green, yellow and white too. $14 each

7. Who doesn’t love a diamond? Even if it’s just a box, it’s the thought that counts, right? Besides, good things come in small packages. Okay, enough with the cheesy witty remarks, the Areaware Diamond Box would make a cute gift. $15 each
