Top Ten Gifts for Him
Last week’s blog post featured my list of this season’s top ten gift ideas for her, which leaves no doubt this week is all about the men! I have searched high and low for a versatile list that, in no particular order of importance, is sure to have something for each of the top men in your lives, be it friend, family, or coworker. Plus, 6 out of the ten are under $50! Let’s get started, shall we?
1. Tile App
First on the list is for those of us who happen to know of someone who seems to lose their keys, wallet, the TV remote, coat or what have you, on a daily basis. The makers of the Tile App are sure on to something with their small, tile looking gadget made to attach on practically anything. The tiles are powered by Bluetooth and then tracked through the downloadable app for your Apple or Android phone—plus the batteries are built to last 1 whole year with no charging necessary. One tile app is $25, or you can buy them in groups of 4, 8 or 12 for $70-$180.
2. The Big Bad Book of Bill Murray
It’s not hard to find a book worm in the group of men you know, and even if it is, it isn’t hard to find one that’s a fan of Bill Murray. Released September 15th of this year, The Big Bad Book of Bill Murray is
“Part biography, part critical appreciation, part love letter, and all fun, this enormous full-color volume, packed with color film stills and behind-the-scenes photography, chronicles every Murray performance in loving detail, recounting all the milestones, legendary “Murray stories,” and controversies in the life of this enigmatic performer.”

Next on the list is for those who are with the times in terms of technology and behind the times in terms of winter accessories. Sure you can purchase gloves with the touch screen phone friendly capability, but what about all the beloved gloves and mittens that have been used over the years they refuse to separate from? Introducing Nanotips, the touch screen solution to your ancient glove problems. Simply paint this solution onto the tips of the pointer finger and thumb finger of the gloves, let dry, and text away! Available for only $13 in Black for your leather and rubber gloves and Blue for your fabric and fleece gloves.
