NEW YEARS EVE: a style guide

NEW YEARS EVE: a style guide

A night of celebration and memories, New Year's Eve is a time when we look at the past year and reflect upon what we have accomplished and what we have learned. It's also a time to Party like there is no tomorrow! NYE is your absolute last chance to dress up and do it big in 2011, so leave the tee shirts and cargo pants at home boys! Break out your finest, grab a bottle of bubbly and raise your glass to say good bye to 2011 and shout hello to 2012!

Naughty or Nice

Naughty or Nice

Jingle Bell Blues? Don't worry...grab yourself a peppermint mocha and perk up! I come from a large family and have an even larger extended family, so trust me, I know a little something about shopping! I came up with a fun way of shopping for the holidays that is both fun and practical. First you will need to divide your list into Naughty and Nice (Now, just a warning on my list Naughty means something entirely different . . . don't judge), then you must check it twice (ok so I may be a little OCD).

As a rule I only buy for the main members of my family (sorry Uncle George's 2nd cousin on his moms side. . .) this way I don't spread my budget too thin, but If it's a family gathering and I don't want to feel guilty I always bake holiday cookies and hand them out as a holiday token of my cheer and goodwill (Ok, so I don't actually bake, but if you put chips-a-hoy in the microwave for 20 seconds no one will tell the difference). Now back to the list, I like to keep it light and fun, unless you are engaged to the person or they recently have given you some vital organ there is no need racking your brain for that "perfect gift". Below are some of my favorite gifts to give this season for the people who I have come to think of as Naughty and Nice this holiday season!

Note: Probably not appropriate for your Dad or Gramps, If you've made it on the Naughty list you can expect to get more than a lump of coal from me this year. I love the Toddland Santa Briefs; a gift that's bound to cause a giggle. The Pipe College Jock is a fun cheeky gift…great stocking stuffer! This one is surely meant for the naughtiest of all, the Pipe Commando jock. . .the picture says it all. True Religions Drifter Gift set everything Santa's Naughty little help could want
If you've been a good boy this year you are in for a treat! Archipelago's Parfum Noir Silver Candle tin & 2 votive boxed gift sets make wonderful gifts for practically anyone. A great gift for the man about town, the Kenneth Cole Leather card case, is a thoughtful and useful gift. Travel in style with the Molten Brown Kaleidoscope gift set.
