Gifts For Him

Daniel Wellington Classic St. Andrews Watch (Save 15% with code holiday_apreppystateofmind
Daniel Wellington Classic Cambridge Watch (Save 15% with code holiday_apreppystateofmind
Elbow Patch Sweater (Save 40% with code give this)
Buffalo Plaid Sweater (Save 40% with code givethis)
Desk Trays (Save 30% with code givethis)

In my opinion, the guys are the most difficult to buy for.  So, I've created a little roundup of some great "Gifts For Him."  A Barbour Jacket is the ultimate gift, one he will never get tired of and will enjoy for a very long time.  

It's the same thing with Daniel Wellington Watches!  He will enjoy them day after day, year after year.  You can save 15% off your Daniel Wellington purchase by entering the code holiday_apreppystateofmind at checkout.  All orders placed by December 17th will arrive in time for Christmas, and when purchasing an extra strap, free worldwide shipping and gift wrapping will be honored. 

And how perfect are these desk trays from J.Crew?  I loveee them.

What are you gifting the well-dressed man on your list this year?

Stay Tuned!
