Gift Ideas For Men (From a Man’s Perspective) Part 1

By

Let’s begin this year with my number one rule when buying for men. We are simple creatures, we are not complicated, trying to buy us elaborate or complicated gifts rarely works. Trying to buy us clothing that is out of our personality range rarely works. Most of us enjoy tradition, simplicity, experience, and quality. A grandfather or father probably passed those values down to us so it’s usually somewhere inside, even if it’s buried beneath a love for video games or other materialistic bologna. This list is built around that concept. I didn’t include very many electronics or high tech gadgets because those are too easy. Everybody wants an iPad, PS3, LCD TV, GPS, blah, blah, blah.

By

Gang, I’m back!! Sort of. Sleep deprived, yes. Living in a fog…um, yeah…that too. But the happy mum of two adorable boys. And if that weren’t enough (although it is, really)…it’s the holiday season! After nine long months or pregnancy, and after too many sleepless nights, I’m in the mood to be pampered. I’ll bet many of you are too. So forward this on to your gentlemen or partners to help point them in the right direction, gift-wise.

When You Can’t Get a Good Family Pic: Tiny Print’s Holiday Cards to the Rescue!

By

I love holiday cards. I mean…I loooove holiday cards. My mom started this tradition. Each year, my mom would sit down and do holiday cards (well in advance – unlike myself, she is insanely organized) with a pot of tea, and a few slices of fruitcake. In addition to a printed Christmas newsletter, my mom would also include with each card a hand-written note. All one hundred of them. Now that’s dedication to a holiday card tradition.
While I fully intend to someday emulate my mom (really, her manners are perfection)…I don’t.

PB065411 In our last Style Rules for Moms article, many readers either commented (or wrote in) wondering how tall a boot must be to qualify as a “tall boot”….J solved this problem perfectly by going for a pair of Frye Harness boots (in a gorgeous charcoal color).

Go Buy Now: Fine Glitter Headband For Upcoming Holiday Parties (or for those who secretly want a tiara)

By

There’s a part of me that would like to wear a tiara. Yes, on my head. And yes – out of the house. You know…princess-like.
I do realize that it doesn’t quite match 30-something wrinkles. But still.
So this past summer, when the Fine Glitter headband sparkled out at me from the J. Crew display, I was hooked. It’s pretty. It’s sparkly. It’s tiara-like. And…it’s subtle enough to not be mistaken for an actual tiara. Or a blatant channeling of Blair Waldorf.
