Holiday Gift Guide: the Manliest of Men

Happy Wednesday!

Are you guys still so excited about our 1st Annual Momtourage GIVE Event?  I am!  There are even more raffle prizes rolling in!  Super fun!

Here is our 4th installation of the 2013 Holiday gift guide.  I collaborated with the Gift Whisperer (AKA my hubby) to find out what men really want.  I came up with most of the gifts and he came up with witty replies.  I hope you enjoy and I truly hope you find a gift for the men in your lives.  It’s so hard to shop for them!!!!

Stocking Stuffers

pocket pint


Mama Momoturage: For the man on the go…that likes his drinks to go too.  Or maybe for the optimist that always thinks he will come across a kegger.

Gift Whisperer: Not to mention, late into the night it doubles as a looking glass.  Who needs beer goggles? You can spot a lady from afar…AAARGHHH!!  (Disclaimer:  I do not practice such behavior because I am a happily married man.  Just saying.)

survival kit


Mama Momoturage: Doesn’t every man always want to save the day…..

Gift Whisperer: Every guy wants to be MacGuyver and if they won’t admit they’re lying.

Whiskey Stones

Mason Shaker Whisky Stones $17.00

Mama Momoturage: My man doesn’t drink whiskey, but I like to think that Tom Selleck does.  And wouldn’t he need something like this.  Did I mention that I really loooove Tom Selleck??

Gift Whisperer: WTF is a whiskey stone?  Magnum PI would never use these…



Mama Momoturage: We have some serious golfers in our family, and I think this could come in handy!  Plus, ladies, have you ever wanted to emboss your initials or maybe a special message on your man’s balls?  (Sorry, the joke was too easy!)

Gift Whisperer: You’re man can finally personalize his PRO V-1s with his nickname, “Big Hitter” or “Fore!”


Ad-N-Art Brew2Go Insulated Tumbler $18.00

Mama Momoturage: For the man on the go that spills a little bit, or maybe for the tipsy man?  Wait, maybe for the dude that rides his bike a lot….

Gift Whisperer: No more party fouls for guys…”I didn’t bill my speer…Blaaaaghhhh!!.  Hey you’re pretty.”  (Disclaimer:  I do not practice such behavior because I am a happily married man.  Just saying.)

bike lights


Mama Momoturage: Really could have used these over the summer.  These look awesome!

Gift Whisperer: What good are lights that shine out the side of my handlebars…Shouldn’t “safety” lights safely light the road in front of me?  On the upside cars won’t hit you.

Folding speaker

Kikkerland USB Accordion Speaker $20.00

Mama Momoturage: For the man that loves his tunes.

Gift Whisperer: Now your man can pull a speaker out of his pocket  and serenade you with the sweet sultry sounds of Whitesnake, Sister Christian or Styx

Gift Guide

35mm camera

Lemography ‘Fisheye All Black’ Camera $55.00

Mama Momoturage: It’s a 35mm camera, so maybe for the hipster?

Gift Whisperer: I’m starting a movement.  Lets take vintage photography back from those skinny jean, knit cap posers.    BTW, why do they ride those stupid multi-color ten-speeds with no brakes? I don’t get it.

luggage tags

A Pair of Custom Smoke Grey Leather Luggage Tags $81.00

Mama Momoturage: For the world traveler..

Gift Whisperer:  These are awesome.  You can…uh…you can…uh…put them on your luggage



Mama Momoturage: I know my hubby will hate this, but I kinda love this.  They are tuxedo shorts.  Chubbies is a company that has some seriously hilarious advertisements. They’re motto is “Sky’s out thighs out!”.  How could somebody not chuckle at that???

Gift Whisper:  I’ll endorse these for the simple fact that the company puts out some of the funniest ads around.  If you don’t like their FB page you are missing out.

reebok shoes

Reebok CrossFit Nano 3.0 $119.99

Mama Momoturage: If you recall, my hubby is a crossfit coach at Folsom City CrossFit and he helped me with this Workout Wednesday post.  Well, he loves these shoes.  So, if your man is into crossfit you totally need to get him these.

Gift Whisperer: Ok so these will only be good for a CFers but they are my personal favorites.  BTW you don’t have to be a meat head to wear them.

G Shock

G-Shock X-Large Big Combi Watch, 55mm x 51mm $150.00

Mama Momtourage: I personally don’t see the allure, but the hubster peeked over my shoulder when I was surfing the world-wide-web for fab gift ideas for the men in all our lives and he went a little cray.  So I had to include it…

Gift Whisperer: I don’t know why she doesn’t get the allure…It doubles as a “stunner” watch and a watch for the tri-athlete.  Basically its what Kanye or Jay-Z would wear if they were competing in the IronMan.

Mama Momtourage: Babe, no one like Kanye anymore, he’s kinda a joke now.  And let’s be real: Hova is not engaging in anything athletic right now.  Have you seen him lately???

Bose minis

Bose SoundLink® Mini Bluetooth® speaker $199.99

Mama Momtourage: Bose is definitely BOSS in the sound world, and this is mini, so I guess that makes it supa dupa fly!

Gift Whisperer: I mean I’m not saying that it will bump like the woofer you used to have in a box in your trunk, but its pretty awesome.

bonobos sweater

Bonobos The Portofino Italian Cashmere Hoodie – Grey $238.00

Mama Momtourage: I love a dude in something soft, and this is a hoodie which rocks.  It says to me, “I like luxurious fabrics, but like to fly below the radar.  Come over here and feel how soft this Italian cashmere is…”.

Gift Whisperer:  Ladies don’t dress your men…that is all



Mama Momtourage: Alright, alright, I kinda want this for just me….but I’m sure there’s a man out there that digs it too.

Gift Whisperer:  Old school meets new school…its pretty cool.

Mama Momtourage: See!!!


Burberry Giant Check Cashmere Scarf  $395.00

Mama Momoturage: A classic Burberry scarf in another soft fabric.  I love a man in a scarf!

Gift Whisperer: See Cashmere Hoodie

Mama Momoturage: You wear scarves…..

I hope you’ve enjoyed our take on gifts for him.  Now I have to go return some things…..

  1. Lol. Great to have Nicks perspective on things. I know sometimes us girls think we know EVERYTHING, and for the most part we do… but occasionally we are a bit off. Some great ideas! Thanks guys!
