Tarreyn Land Holiday Gift Guide! PART ONE

That means SO many things, including PRESENT SHOPPING! 

I love giving presents. More specifically, I love giving the perfect present. It's almost at a point of silent competition with myself. 

Last year, I shared with you all a comprehensive Gift Giving Guide filled with over 100 ideas and resources for all of your gift giving needs! It's got present ideas out the wazoo for every different kind of gift! Be sure to check it out! 

I have for you a THREE PART gift giving guide of specific fun stuff I've found in my internet travels! 
I spent A. LOT. of time compiling this, so hopefully it will save YOU guys some time and money in your present searching! 
The next three days will be filled with different gift guides for all the special people in your life, so be sure to tune in! 
Let's get started!


1. Brixton Beanie
It's hard not to look cool in a beanie, and Brixton makes the best! Find one that's perfect for him and keep him stylish and warm. 

2. Breaking Bad complete series
This one's a little pricey (especially if you've already got it Netflix), but for those die-hard Heisenberg fans in your life, this set is pretty bad-ass. (Complete with Los Pollos Hermanos Apron!) Also consider other cool box sets. 

3. Beer of the Month Club
The gift that keeps on giving! He gets a 12 pack of handcrafted beer in the mail every month for as long as you choose! (They also have jerkey, neckties, cigars and so much more!!!)

4. Icons of Men's Style
This book is the BOMB when it comes to masculine fashion inspiration! He'll learn all about the pieces every man should have in his wardrobe, and where and how they became iconic! Just the boost a guy needs sometimes. 

5. A Nixon Watch
Watches are always a great gift, and I have come to love Nixon! Check out their tons of styles and looks! (Great ones for gals too)

6. Desert Boots
An essential for any groovy guy's wardrobe, Clarks is the original and classic brand, and these shoes can go with almost everything.

7. Custom Suit
Keep your guy dapper with a custom suit! Stark Suits takes your style preference and measurements and creates the suit you want at reasonable prices!

7. Ray-Ban Sunglasses
A pair of nice sunglasses can totally change the way you see the world. Pun intended. Another style essential, Jake and I don't go anywhere without our Ray-Bans. I reccomend something classic like these - the wayfarer, aviator or clubmaster

8. Headphones
Everyone needs a good pair of headphones, so why not listen in style? For a more reasonable (and colorful!!!) option, I love Urbanears, but for pricier, higher quality, Grados are supposed to be bomb. 

9. Throwback Video Game 
Bring him back flashes of childhood with something along the lines of this retro gameboy (or sega or nintendo)! Think about other fun stuff from being a kid too! Pogs? Trolls? Skateboard?

10. Backpack
Everyone needs something to carry their swag, and backpacks are an essential. A lot of guys love these from Herschel Supply Co.!

11. Men's Shaving Set
Jake got one of these as a gift a few years ago and loves it! Add a little specialness to his morning routine, and make him feel dapper and sleek!

11. Portable Grill
This one looks fantastic for camping, road trips, and lots of your grilling needs! 

12. DIY Furniture Step-By-Step Guide
A lot of my good guy friends are starting to get really into building their own furniture, and this book looks like a fantastic place to begin.

13. Breakfast Sandwich Maker
This one speaks for itself. Yum.

14. Personalized Leather Catch-All
Women have so many different ways to compartmentalize their things, but give your guy this nice personalized leather catch-all to keep all his man-accessories in one place. 

15. Polaroid Digital Camera
I know this is on MY wish list for this year, but who doesn't love polaroid?! AND it's digital?? Score.

7. A Cambridge Satchel
It's no secret I'm obsessed with this company - I have 2 satchels myself! Get her this classic bag in a huge variety of sizes, colors and looks. And to make it really special, get it embossed in gold or silver with her initials! (they also have groovy ones for guys too!)

8. Wide Brimmed Hat
Every girl needs a groovy wide brimmed hat, like this Brixton Wesley!

9. Classic Oxfords
Along with a stylish hat, I'm of the belief that every girl has to have a perfect pair of oxfords. Check out these classics from Bass

10. A Rocker Sweatshirt or Tee
Like this David Bowie one. Bonus points for actual vintage.

11. Fabric Making Kit
I've never tried this, but it looks super cool! Permanently print your own designs onto fabric with this awesome DIY fabric printing kit that's similar to screen printing! Everything you need to get started is included!

12. A Bicycle!
Get her something functional and fun like this one from public bikes! Every girl loves a beach cruiser and there are a ton of great brands out there right now! OR you can get a fixer-upper and make repairing it a fun thing to do together! 

13. A Getaway
Few things would be more exciting to unwrap than a plane ticket to somewhere she's been wanting to go. It could be a cheap trip up the coast, or something lavish like Hawaii, depending on finances. Consider doing something like this and giving the gift of an experience! 
***Other things to consider: Spa Gift certificates, Adventure Package, Hot Air Balloon, Etc!

14. Gel Nail Kit
Gel manicures are so fantastic but so pricey! Give her the tools to pamper herself at home with this kit!
