Happy December, everyone! The season of gifting is upon us, so I’m here to help. For those of you who find shopping a challenge, I’ll be putting together gift guides this month just for you. Guides for him, for her, for kids—you name it. There will be something here for everyone on your list!
This week? I’m going with the guys. For some reason, shopping for men has always been a challenge for me. My Dad was impossible to shop for. My brother, the same. Now, with a husband, I’ve had to sharpen my gifting skills and devise a plan for these gifts for guys. Maybe it’s because what I want isn’t quite what they want (you mean you don’t want this faux fur scarf in teal?). It’s a bit of guessing game.
But! I like to think I’ve gotten better over the years. So, here’s my list to help you too shop for the guys in your life. Good luck to us all!

For the hat lover—Goorin Brother’s rocks the greatest selection of hats for the man who can’t stand to leave his head naked. From and to and (that’s right), there’s something here for every guy you know.
For the beer aficionado—Pasadena is home to one of the greatest little beer secrets: the . It may be small, but the beers they serve are bold and boozy. Even greater? They sell growlers, awesome containers that allow you to return for refills, over and over again. It’s the gift that keeps on giving!
