Tori Richard Boat Day Print Aloha Shirt

Spring is just around the corner! I'm ready to say "adios" to winter, snow, cold, and ice and I'm more than ready to say "hola" to spring, being outside, grilling, and so much more! Most of all: SUNSHINE!! :)
I found the perfect gift to get ready for this upcoming season change. This Boat Day Print Aloha Shirt by Tori Richard is composed of early 20th century artwork by Hawaiian artists. It's original, unique, and one of a kind. This is a 100% cotton shirt that's lightweight, relaxed and perfect for Spring and Summer.
I can't wait to see this great shirt in person--and if you want to as well you'll have to act fast! A few of the sizes are already sold out. Luckily, sizes medium, large, and extra large are still available!

Floating Beer Pong

I hope you all had a great weekend! I sure did. I did a lot of relaxing--it was much needed!
My boyfriend has a bachelor party next weekend and he wants to get a great gift for his friend. He is excited to celebrate his friend's last few weekends being single! I have one rule, and that is that I really don't want to know what they get themselves into! Boys will be boys.
Since we are getting them a nice wedding gift he wants to get a light-hearted, fun gift for a bachelor party gift. This is a unique gift that is sure to get some laughs! It's a floating beer pong table. This is great because they have a pool that they can use this in when they entertain over the summer.

Blue Print Storage

My dad is an architect. He is great at his job and has many clients that love his work! However, and this stays between us, but the man (I love him dearly) is not organized!! I always harp on him saying that he needs some sort of organization for his business. It will help him be more efficient and productive.
I found a great site that I'm going to show him. I feel like I hit the jackpot when I found blue print storage, rolled document storage, blue print file organizers, blue print plan organizers, upright wire bin roll files, poster storage display, and blue print storage boxes. This is great! Everything that he could possibly need to make his business successful, since he already has the talent and brains. There are all different sizes and shapes that he can choose from to accommodate his needs. I have a feeling that he will want everything on this great site, the selection is outstanding.

Men's Jewelry

Jewelry is a great gift for men. They often don't buy it for themselves, so the gift is useful and thoughtful. The men's jewelry on this site is great, with a huge selection available to choose from with great prices.
Some of the materials available in which the jewelry comes in include: tungsten carbide, titanium, palladium, and cobalt chrome. They have rings, lighters, necklaces, bracelets, flasks, key rings, money clips, cuff links and more!
No matter what his style is, or what is lifestyle is like--you will find something that makes the perfect gift!

Thank You Gift

Sometimes it's great to give a gift of thanks and appreciation. It's a small gesture, but an important one.
I love this deluxe botanical garden. It's made up of succulent plants that are sturdy, modern, lush, and unique. These are low maintenance to take care of, so it's not a huge concern to take care of perfectly if you don't possess a green thumb! These make any room pop with life and color. They look great in offices, dens, living rooms, etc. They also come planted in this eye popping back zinc container. Check out this low maintenance arrangement of gorgeous plants and give a man in your life a thank you gift!

Mens Titanium Wedding Bands

My husband isn't a fussy type of guy. All he really cares about is quality. We were looking at rings in a normal jewelry place and he just sort of shook his head everytime he was one. I though they were fine, but once we left he would say at my job that would brake just walking in the doors. Well I could understand that he does have a tough job, do the ring will have to last his as well. We ended but kind of giving up until we saw these mens titanium wedding bands. We read about them and fell in love. They are perfect for him and his job. Not only that but we can get a matching set for him and I!!

Unique Titanium Bracelets

My husband and is partners at work received these titanium bracelets for a gift of 5 years. I think it is just a gorgeous bracelet. I was scared he wasn't going to wear it very often, because of all his other jewelry I got him, but he wears it fairly often and I'm glad. My father loves the bracelet that he got and I think he wants it! It's a gorgeous piece of jewelry and I think it is just something simple, unique and can dress up your outfit anytime.

I had to ask where he got the bracelet, because I love the design and the black diamonds in it. I thought that was so unique and now I want to find something with black diamonds. You don't see many pieces of jewelery with them in it and I want to find something unique and beautiful. I'm trying to hint that to my husband for my birthday coming up in a month! Hopefully he will catch on, but half the time I have to write it out for him, or just tell him what I want. I love him anyways.

Amp Style Retro Speaker

Most of the men I know in this world love gadgets and electronics. I recently found this speaker and I love it! It's such a fun, creative, and unique product. It's an amp style retro speaker.
This is modeled after real guitar amps and even has functional volume, treble, and bass knobs. It works for iPhones, iPods, or any portable audio devices with an AUX port. There's a cradle on top of the audio box to cradle your device. It can be powered by a USB cable or AA batteries.
I love that this great product is portable because of it's convenient size! It would be great at small gatherings, on decks during grill outs, camping, in dens, etc. I'm thinking of ordering one for myself, too!

CDs make great gifts! They're great because they can be played in most cars, in houses, and brought on trips or to different places. They can also put downloaded on computers to be put on iPods, mp3 players, etc. CDs also aren't overly expensive (about $15) and there is a huge variety out there (you can get CDs in all different genres!)
I like this CD website because you can see different genres on the side of the homepage and all different CDs come up when you click on the genre you want.
Giving CDs to the man in your life shows him that you care about his taste in music.

If you've never seen the HBO series "Entourage", it's a must-watch! This show is fantastic. A quick synapsis: This show is about 4 men, all of them friends, living in Hollywood, in a true American dream. It's a comedy-drama series and lasted for 8 seasons. It's produced by Mark Wahlberg and stars Kevin Connoly, Adrian Grenier, Kevin Dillon, and Jerry Ferrera.
I watched a few episodes with Alex last year, and I'm hooked! We rented a lot of the seasons at our local movie store, but I think that for his birthday this year, I'm going to be buying some of the seasons for him. It's a series that you can watch over and over again. You start feeling like you're a part of the group!

Shoes for the Social Media Lover

I came across these today and fell in love! Granted, the blog that I saw them on was in Spanish, so I have no idea where to get them, but I love them nonetheless.
These shoes would be great for a guy that loves the internet, is into social media, IT, computers, etc. The list can really go on and on!
You have to check them out--they come in "facebook", "twitter", "flickr", "google", and "wikipedia". These are six very popular sites on the internet, and these shoes would definitely be recognized.
It looks like the designer took plain Ked shoes and gave them some oomph! If you're unfamiliar with Ked shoes, they're pretty plain run-of-the-mill canvas shoes. You can also get them in leather I believe!

Shirts for Men

I feel like clothing is a great gift for men. Most men (at least all the ones that I know) don't often go out of their way to buy clothes for themselves. Unlike me, who uses retail as therapy when I've had a crappy day, my boyfriend prefers to turn to an evening with a 6 pack of beer, watching sports on TV. I could spend hours upon hours in a mall (and sometimes do) while he would rather have a root canal.
I found a fun and unique men's clothing website. The brand is called Wrath Arcane. The clothes they carry are not like any style I typically see in stores which I love! This shirt with a unique wrap collar.
Take a look around and see if there's something on there that you could give as a gift to a man in your life.

Blue Print Storage

My dad is an architect. He always has so many blueprints and supplies everywhere. His job is very busy and hectic and he needs some organization!
I found a great solution for him: blueprint storage. They have so many solutions available to store blueprint files, organize them, and plan them. There are many options in which you can go with this. There's rolled blueprint storage made of different materials such as wire, wood, or plastic.
His birthday isn't until April, and Father's Day isn't until June, so I think I'm just going to order some supplies as an appreciation for all he does for me! I can't wait to see how much he and his business benefits from these great storage solutions.

Phone Cover/Wallet

Is this a phone cover? Is it a wallet? With this fantastic product from Hex, you don't have to decide! It's a phone cover & a wallet! I love this product, which fits the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S both.
I'm ordering this ASAP to give as a gift for my Dad. He has an iPhone (that just so happens to be without a case) and usually goes for the simple black ones. He hates carrying a wallet around because he says is so uncomfortable to sit down with a wallet in his back pocket. He loves things that are versatile and functional because it can hold cash and cards in the back.
This particular product is made with genuine leather and is super sturdy--exactly what you want in a phone case! This is a fashionable way to protect your phone and carry your things.

Titanium Wedding Bands

I'm in charge of helping my friend pick out a ring for her future husband for their upcoming wedding. After all, it is my duty as her maid of honor to help out in any way possible!
She is struggling with picking out the perfect ring for him. He is a very down-to-earth, simple living man. He is not picky but has sensitive skin and a busy lifestyle working construction.
We found the perfect ring. It's a titanium wedding band. This material is lightweight, hypoallergenic, and very durable. Titanium is the hottest trend in material for jewelry right now.
Titanium Jewelry has an amazing line of titanium jewelry and has great selection and outstanding prices.

Beer Holster

I came across this beer holster while browsing the internet this morning and I laughed. This product is so funny! Yet it's practical enough to actually be used. There's to men in my life that would appreciate this and they are my significant other, Alex, and my dad.
I could see them using it while grilling or working on things outside where there's not a great place to set their beer on.
This product is genuine leather, it has a holster for a beer bottle and a bottle opener as well. It's sturdy and durable. It attaches to any standard belt and provides a sizable nylon strap to fit around the thigh for added comfort and support. There's also an option for personalization for an extra $10.

The Gift of Food

So we ladies know that a way to a man's heart is definitely through his stomach. That's just plain common knowledge and common sense.
I am making this recipe (I call them yummy chicken "packets", I really don't know any other creative names for them) tonight for Alex as a surprise "gift" to him when he gets done with work.
Here is the recipe:
You will need 1-2 cooked chicken breasts, cut up. 1 can of cream of chicken soup. 1 cup of milk, 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese. 1 can of crescent rolls. (These can also be prepared homemade).
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Unroll the crescent rolls into a 9 x 13 glass dish. Put chicken and cheese in each triangle and close it as much as possible. There's no need to try and roll it. Just fold the corners and try to get them to stick together. Prepare the soup on the stove, adding the can of condensed cream of chicken with the milk. Pour the soup over the chicken "packets." I usually add the extra cheese and soup at this point as well on top. Bake for 30 minutes and you will have an amazing meal and "gift" for the man in your life.

MX vs. ATV-Alive

I was looking for a great gift to give my significant other, Alex, for Christmas this past year. I ended up getting him this video game for his Play Station 3 from Best Buy. It's called MX vs. ATV Alive. It's a racing game where you ride dirt bikes. He plays it all the time, which really is a win win situation. (And aren't those the BEST kinds of situations??) :)
With him playing his game all the time, there is so much time for me to blog (one of my favorite pastimes), take baths, study, and watch my movies. All of that without feeling guilty.
Anyway, enough about me. I never thought I would say this but I enjoy the game as well. So much that Alex bought me a pink PS3 controller to play with him! I've gotten quite good. When in doubt with what to get a man, go with a video game. It's a guaranteed successful gift that he'll love!

Mens Rings He Won't Stop Thanking You For!

My best guy friend loves jewelry. It was his birthday a week ago and I really wanted to get him something he would really love. I was looking at mens rings and found the perfect ring for him. There were so many different designs to pick from. When he opened it up he was in shock! He wouldn't stop telling me how much he loved it like the rest of the night!
