2018 Holiday Gift Guides for Him & Her (and Them, Too!)

His, hers, and theirs gift guides just in time for that last minute holiday shopping.  Let's be honest.  I still haven't started my Christmas shopping.  However, after curating these lists I know exactly what I'm buying.  I guess that's a step in the right direction.

1. Money Soap - a stock stuffer that keeps giving. Money inside every bar ranging from $1-$50.  Cleans AND carries cash.  Pretty special ;)

2.  The Chef's Portable Multi-Tool - this is such a fun little gadget for any guy on your list.  This multi-tool comes equipped with a can opener, zester, paring knife, serrated knife, cheese grater, garlic crusher, peeler, carving fork, stirring spoon, corkscrew, bottle opener, and channel knife.  Everything but the kitchen sink for less than $35.

3.  SipCaddy Portable Cup Holder - have a guy on your list who doesn't like to go anywhere without his drink?!  Well now he doesn't have to. Great for the shower or anywhere else he might need a cup holder.

4.  Casio Black Resin Watch - This water resistant resin watch is lightweight and looks great!  For a watch that's less than $15, this one can't be beat.

5.  Pocket Mini Screwdriver Key - because you never know when they'll need a screwdriver.  I bet MacGuyver would've loved something like this.

6.  Dad Jokes Joke Book - they've all got 'em, so let give 'em more so they don't keep telling the same ones over and over again.

7.  Zippo Refillable Hand Warmer - sign me up for a few of these too, please!

8.  Rapid Car Charger - for the guy who doesn't like to wait, this car charger comes complete with 5 USB ports & delivers the fastest possible charge.  I think they all need one of these.

9.  Survival Kit in a Sardine Can - I love random, practical gifts and this one is just that.  A little emergency kit for any outdoorsman.  And just like sardines, there's A LOT packed inside these little tins!!!

10.  Leather Ear Bud Case - no more tangled cords.  These are especially life changing for the guy who frequently travels!

11.  Stainless Steel Manicure Kit  - I'm hoping this solves the recurring "where are the clippers????" question I seem to get no less than 12 times a week.

12.  Drunk, Stoned, or Stupid - Okay, so this suggestion isn't meant to offend, but I literally laughed out loud when I saw this because I guess I have the humor of a 16-year-old teen.  It's an immature game that's meant to make you laugh, so take that for what it is.  I'm super curious, so this might end up in Mr. Spouse's stocking.  Research purposes, of course ;)

13.  Pocket Ref - this pocket sized reference book has a lot of information about a lot of different things and I can think of several guys on my list who'd love to have something like this on hand.

7.  Leather Travel Duffel Bag - this is a gift that's definitely on the pricier side, but if you're looking for just one "big" gift, this would be a great one...especially if he loves to travel.

8.  Manscaped Perfect Package 2.0 - this perfect package of manscaping tools & products includes a trimmer, shaver, moisturizer, toner, and MORE!  Ahh!
