What to buy all the fabulous men in your life? Usually this is the hardest category, but this year there were so many fantastic options. Caitlin Confidential's Christmas Gift Guide kicks off now.
John Varvatos: Rock in Fashion Coffee Table Book ($60)- If you don't have sex and drugs this coffee table book is the next best thing. Leather Jackets and Rock and Roll go hand in hand and this book encapsulates them both in an exploration of how musician's style have affected fashion and pop culture. Beautiful for his at-home office or on the nightstand. (If you're feeling extra generous, give the book with a John Varvato's leather jacket or one of his wool sweaters.)
Sleepy Jones Pajamas- Every man needs a good set of pajamas to tinker, ponder and pontificate. For laying around on Sundays or popping into the corner market (trust me, you WILL want to go out of the house in these), these pj's are made from the crispest cotton and tailored to a tee. These are the Sol Pajama Pant in Red Stripe.
Baxter of California Travel Kit ($50)- Ladies, stop men from using your expensive face cream like its a bottle of Nivea. Gentlemen need their own grooming kit. This one is made up of everything he needs with hair, skin, and shaving products all in a sleek navy wash bag. Sized to TSA regulations, this makes the perfect gift for your worldly traveler.
Nike + Fuelband SE ($169)- For the athlete in your life, the new Nike SE Fuel is the ultimate in gadgets. Give it to him for those few days after New Years when his "get in shape" resolution is still in effect. This tracks the intensity of his workouts in real time, as well as regulates his sleep. I personally am feeling the rose gold, but it comes in a variety of colors.
Tom Ford Lip Balm ($25)- Men carry around three things- wallet, keys, and lip balm. Now is the time to upgrade his drugstore Blistex to the ultimate in luxury lip balm. Made with natural oils and vitamins to smooth and protect, I have a feeling you will be reaching into his pocket for this just as much as he is. (A great stocking stuffer)
Ferrari 30th Anniversary Calendar 2014 ($90)- Guys like cars. Guys like really, really fast cars. That sums up what I know about cars and men for that matter. Only joking (nervous laughter), but in all seriousness, this highly sought after calendar is the ultimate in car porn. These cars are printed on highly glossy 50x70 portrait format paper. Ships from Italy, order soon.
Anker Astro High-Capacity External Battery Pack ($50) This charges an Iphone 6 times, giving him six less excuses of why his phone died when you asked him to pick up the dry cleaning on his way home from work.
Nespresso Citiz Espresso Maker with Aeroccino Plus Automatic Milk Frother ($300)- This gift may be just as much for you because hopefully you will reap the benefits of him learning how to brew the perfect cappuccino.
Apple TV ($99)- Boxed DVD Sets are a thing of a past. Take a bite out of this Apple TV, upgrade and download the last season of Breaking Bad. He'll be so happy he won' t even see that Seasons 1 through 6 of Sex and the City have already been added to the library.
