DownEast Basics: When your just not sure what clothes to buy that special women in your life or sister, mom, ect.....you always want to get her a gift card. Well that's great but make it super cute stuffed inside some cute soft slippers and funky polka dot hat. Sometimes these are items women don't always buy for themselves but are thankful when they have them. I feel like mostly moms don't buy themselves slippers all the time, I am sure some often do but we mostly buy things for our kids. So buy the gift card at Downeast then some yummy slippers and slip the card in those slippers. There so cute and warm and so soft inside. I wear mine every night for the past week. Great gift.

#1 PICK Stance Socks: Yes for men it's all about their socks.

Tired of belts that wear out before they wear out their usefulness? Switch belts won't warp or fray, giving you a durable alternative to the same ol' boring leather belts. Men need some fun in their wardrobe too and these belts really set a tone of unique style. Best gift idea right here. Love these for stocking stuffers. Switch is bio-degradable. It is made of a thermoplastic resin, which is one of the most eco-friendly plastics available. Coolest thing you can switch it up....meaning you can switch out the buckle with different colors of belts and buckles. Change you shoes...change your buckle. Save some sweet money while you're looking so GQ. Feel up those stocking this season with some cool guy fashion.
Beacon Speakers : Now we all know men love their electronics and mostly speakers. OMG they think they are so cool. So of course wouldn't be a good christmas without some sort of electronic. I love this company! Super fresh and a must have on your list this year. One of the speakers I think you need to get this year for that special man is the Phoenix! Why? Well first off I think it's rad how it's a portable bluetooth speaker. Boasting an 8 hour battery life on a single charge, cable-free syncing with almost any Bluetooth device, and ability to blast huge sound from a small package, the Phoenix is the ultimate take-with-you-anywhere speaker. Weighing in at only 200 grams, with a reach of up to 40 feet via Bluetooth, the Phoenix is sure to knock out the competition. It comes in many different fun colors and makes those dance offs that more entertaining.
1face watch: What man dosen't love a watch? They love them! But this one is stylish and is changing the world one day at a time. What is more handsome then a man in a amazing watch that is giving back. Deets? 1:FaCe Watch, a project founded on the principle that the power of Consumers can be used to benefit the World. lt’s goal is to combat many of the issues that currently affect mankind; be it Cancer, Breast Cancer, AlDS, the Environment, Water, or World Hunger.

The modern consumer not only wants to purchase a product that benefits them, they want a product that can benefit others as well. So why not?

Speck IPhone/IPad Cover: Again if your man is like mine he loves his iphone almost more than me....jk but really to protect his phone is like a gold moment. So another great gift for any man is a cover that is sleek, functional, and practical. Speck Iphone cases do just that. I love the one where he can carry his money and cards in his phone case. Men don't have big purses and hate to carry around wallets everywhere so I love this idea.
