Cozy in Gingham

Wrap: Aerie (similar) // Dress: Tobi  // Earrings: Blue Nile
Boots: Browns

Happy Monday everyone! Good luck to everyone writing finals!

Right now, the only thing standing between me and Christmas break is my Biostatistics exam. I'm so excited to be nearly done my first semester of grad school! This weekend I'm headed to Niagara-on-the-Lake with my boyfriend for some winery tours to celebrate. In between studying, I've been planning my outfits to avoid frantic last minute packing. A turtleneck dress paired with boots is super easy to throw together and comfortable, yet still chic, so I will definitely be packing this with me (Tobi has lots of cute dress options!).

Holiday Gift Guide: Boyfriends

Let me start off by saying that boyfriends are the hardest people to shop for!! I get so stressed out trying to figure out birthday and Christmas gifts for my boyfriend. He always buys me beautiful gifts like jewelry and perfume straight from my Pinterest board, but when I ask him what he wants he never has any ideas. He's not into fashion, coffee, beer, or men's care products so that rules out a lot of gift options. I tried to include some more unique gifts options that don't fall into these categories.

Patagonia Quarter-Zip // This is a great option for your guy, even if he's not that into clothes because it's practical. My boyfriend is not in to fashion at all but he loves this sweater because it's so warm and cozy.

Monogram Leather Wallet // Everyone uses a wallet, so why not upgrade your boyfriend to a nice, adult wallet. The personalization is a nice added touch. Mark & Graham has a matching grooming kit, briefcase, and overnight bag.

Monogram Flask //

Cards Against Humanity // This is one of the gifts that I'm getting my boyfriend this year. It's a huge crowd pleaser at get togethers and I know it's something that he will get a lot of enjoyment out of with his friends.

Birchbox Man Subscription // If your boyfriend is into grooming products, this is a great way to introduce him to new products and brands. Boxes include hair, body, and skin care items. Subscriptions are currently 20% off!

Concert or Sportsgame Tickets // Take your bf to see his favorite team or band. This is a great gift idea because it's an experience that you two can enjoy together. This is the first gift option that I look in to for my bf's birthday or Christmas gift.

Bitcoin // Why not invest in some Bitcoin for your boyfriend! My boyfriend's bff suggested this so I know it's guy approved. Use the Quadriga platform to purchase Bitcoins.

Magazine Subscription // I like this idea because you can tailor it to your boyfriend's interests like fitness, sports, style etc. My boyfriend is into entrepreneurship, so I got him subscriptions to Entrepeneur and Fast Company, which are business magazines.

Needlepoint Hat // Smathers & Branson have plenty of nice needlepoint baseball hats to choose from with symbols like the flag, lacrosse sticks, boats, anchors, birds, dogs, golf carts etc.

Photo Album // If you are looking for a more inexpensive or sentimental gift, get your boyfriend a photo album and fill it with pictures of you two. I got this for my boyfriend one year and I print out pictures every so often to add to the album.
