2013 gift guide: for him

From Cup to Cup's 2013 Holiday Gift Guide: We believe that gift-giving should be done out of joy and excitement for the holiday season, and out of love for the recipient of our gifts, rather than the obligatory consumerism that so often plagues this time of year. It is our genuine hope that this guide will be helpful in finding just the right present to bestow upon the special people in your life. 

I don't know about you, but the guys in my life are seriously hard to shop for. There are only so many carabiners (dad) or guitar pedals (husband) that I can buy. Coming up with something that they haven't asked for, but will love, is my yearly Christmas challenge. Here are a few ideas that I'm sure your sweetie, dad, or brothers will be happy to unwrap. 

For the Xbox enthusiast, bookworm or movie buff:

cozy hoodie in a billion colors, $48
Pendleton throw handmade in Oregon, $98
warm slippers to cure cold toes, $45

For the outdoor enthusiast:

Go Pro camera to film his latest stunts, $200
National parks map print to dream about his next adventure, $95

For the gadget guy:

wireless headphones to listen from anywhere in the house, $88
magnetic cord keeper for a cool and tidy desk, $40

For the aspiring photographer:

Printstagram print of his latest Instagram masterpiece, $60
iPhone lens for close-ups and fisheyes,  $70
old school Polaroid camera for nostalgia's sake, $70

For the gourmand:

home brew kit so he can play brewmaster, $40
the obsessive chef cutting board for getting all those juliennes lined up, $26
Beechers famous Mac and cheese kit for a perfect comfort dinner,  $55

What are you planning to get for the guys in your life? Anything on this list? 

happy giving, Katie


  1. Were there supposed to be links attached to these suggestions? Or do we just hunt them down ourselves?

    1. Diana, the text itself is a link- for example, clicking on "a cozy hoodie" or "GoPro camera" takes you to the site. Hope that makes sense!
