It was our turn, ladies, earlier this week, but I actually really enjoy putting together gift guides for guys. It’s a little refreshing to do something different- plus I love shopping for other people and this year I get to shop for my own guy.

I’m also thinking that because I’ve never pulled a male in my office Secret Santa, this might be the year and I should be prepared. Like my gift guide/ stocking stuffers for her, these goodies for him are all under $25, so they could be perfect for those office gift exchanges with a spending cap!

Stockings are HUGE in the Downing household. Literally. My grandma knitted giant, personalized stockings for most of the family, and my mom has found a few places over the years that make similar ones for family members who don’t have the originals. They’re such a big part of our Christmas morning routine, too. Wake up, tea + coffee, stockings, breakfast, the rest of the presents, and then we’ve recently started a tradition of a Christmas day movie and sushi. I love it. My dad and I fight over the real estate in my mom’s stocking, and last year he “forgot” to sneak in the gifts I got her. Yea, right, Daddy! My mom is the stocking expert though- it’s usually a nice mix of practical and little fun gifts, leaving the stockings overflowing onto our brick hearth. I’ll be sure to take a picture of the absurdly idyllic scene this year because it honestly just warms my heart that we have such a strong tradition.

My department at work also has a really nice tradition- we do a Secret Santa for whoever wants to be involved and then we go out for a lunch together. The gifts are all supposed to be capped at $25, and people are supposed to fill out a wishlist to help coworkers who aren’t sure what to get. Like my family, the small gifts tend to be a mix of sweet an practical.

Disclaimer: this may or may not be my submission for the accounting department’s Secret Santa wishlist. hehehe
