When I think of women and what to buy them, I usually get a large amount of ideas depending on their age, likes, dislikes and of course my budget. However, I have an extremely hard time trying to come up with any sort of gift idea, for my now fiance Jose and/or men in general, that doesn't look like it's from his mother (the basics-t-shirts, undies, and/or deodorant).

So I was inspired by Kallie from But, first Coffee. She has a series on her blog, where every week she searches for the help of people she knows for things that they would personally want to receive. Check out her blog here, she also has a YouTube channel, see that here, and let her know VeroSays! sent you! 

I enlisted the help of Jose, who was loads of help. When I ask him what would he like for a Christmas gift he goes on and on about how he doesn't need anything and he is fine with a Christmas card from me- Lame! ;) I switched it up and asked him to help me with this post and he had tons of ideas, thank you Jose! 

Of course, you should only purchase products if you think the person you are buying for would like them, and it needs to be in your budget. With Jose's help I have come up with a few ideas all in different price ranges to fit everyone's budget.  

*Pictures for this blog post were found through the APP Polyvore. Also, the prices shown are not the best available prices, they are the prices provided by the APP. 


All very nice, left to right from least expensive to most expensive.

2. Bulova BVA Series 120 Stainless Steel

3. Movado Men's Circa Watch, 40mm

Both great tablets, this needs to be personalized according to the man's likes as far as technology is concerned. Is he an Apple kind of guy or a Droid? Personally, I would get my fiancé the iPad! 

1. Apple- iPad Air
$499 at Apple

2. Samsung Galaxy 10.1 Tablet 
$430 at Best Buy

Headphones for the Sporty guy: 

These are great for the guy who loves to run or spends a lot of time at the gym. 

1. Sony Clip-On Earphones

2. Bose Sport 

Headphones for the music lover: 

Noise cancellation headphones for the music lover in your life, these are definitely worth the money if used often. 

Studio Headphones | Beats Studio 
$300 at Beatsbydre

According to Jose, you can't go wrong with cologne, some of his favorites are Chrome United, Armani Aqua Digio, and Dolce and Gabbana. 

Don't forget to stock up his basics drawer!! He'll always need t-shirts, underwear and socks!
