It was a great weekend to shop for Christmas presents. I had a ball picking out gifts for all the guys on my list. The first stop on small business Saturday was to an RC store (Remote Control). My guy wants a gas powered remote control monster truck. There is a race track at a campground we go to and he is envious of all the guys with their trucks racing around. So I thought that is a perfect Christmas gift. I customized the entire truck. From the paint, details, the motor, even custom stators.
I think he will really love it. This is a grown man’s toy that runs on gas. He will be like a kid on Christmas morning. I may have to request that he plays with his new toy outside after awhile I am sure. These trucks are very neat because you can keep rebuilding them and changing out parts. He will have a good clean hobby to keep him busy and can go out can compete with the men at the campground this summer.
Maybe I can build one for myself and we can race each other at the parks, oooh, that sounds like fun!
I realized the other day that there aren’t a ton of men’s equivalents of jewelry boxes for women. Women have access to tons of different kinds of jewelry boxes to hold and organize their earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings.
I came across this wood accessory valet on the Red Envelope website. This is such a nice-looking box with its glass top and real walnut construction. It’s perfect for him to keep his cuff links, sunglasses, and other jewelry organized and easily accessible. I’ve never seen anything like this before and I think it’s a fantastic idea. This can also be personalized and would make a great gift for Christmas, birthday, or even a groom’s gift from the bride before the wedding!
As you can tell, I’m in “stocking stuffer” mode lately. I found that movie that I wrote about in my last post and I’m thinking that I could also put this copper wallet card and his favorite cologne to complete his stocking.
This copper wallet card is available on Etsy and is a perfect way to leave a personalized note that’s durable enough to stay in his wallet for years. He can see it daily when grabbing his ID, debit or credit card, cash, or anything else he may need in there. It’s a great way to brighten up his day and this can be personalized to say whatever you want it to (up to 75 characters). I can’t wait to get this ordered and get yet another gift crossed off my Christmas list to buy.
Have you seen the movie “Now You See Me?”. If you haven’t, it’s definitely worth checking out. I’ve watched this three times since it’s been released on DVD (I rented it from Redbox every time) and it just never gets old. I’m thinking I should just buy it soon and I know a couple of people that like it just as much as I do that are going to be getting it in their Christmas stockings!
Without giving too much away, it’s about four magicians that pull of some AMAZING things. And if you’re a little hesitant about sci fi movies like I am, it’s not like that at all. When I heard “magic” I thought of that, but it’s a really great mystery, action, suspense movie.
DVDs and Blu Rays make GREAT stocking stuffers. Check out some of the new releases before Christmas!
When my guy is having a horrible week at work, it affects me too. This is because I care about him so much that when something isn’t right in his world, it’s not right in my world either. The same goes for him, so it’s a nice feeling that somebody has my back when I’m going through tough times as well.
With the end of the year fast approaching, it’d been really stressful for him at work. The elevator was also out, so that made for a hectic work environment for everybody, especially in a building with twenty-some floors! They got an elevator service company to come in and make the repair so it’s up and running again. I’m really excited for January to get here and things to slow down for both of us again.
