Three Stocking Stuffers for Men in 2016 + Giveaway

November 11, 2016
love you more too north dallas blogger lifestyle blogger Gifts for men JORD

I have to be honest about something… When Jess asks me to do this from time to time, my initial reaction probably isn’t what it should be. Rather than “Yeah, sure sweetie!” it’s more of a “Why?”.

Not that I don’t enjoy it, because I really do. But I feel I’m basically the exact opposite of the typical reader. I don’t really eat all that healthy. My workouts mainly take place around the ping pong table or at weddings we’re shooting. I don’t dress cute. I do enjoy some good food but… I mean, who doesn’t?

So, what could I possibly have to offer?!

But then, I thought about all of the readers that could be with a person like me (shout out), and how it might be difficult for them to buy a gift for this person from time to time. I have heard Jess say I’m hard to buy for.

So, with Christmas quickly approaching, here are 3 Stocking Stuffers for Dudes That Don’t Work Out, Eat Healthy or Dress Cute (too long?).  Don’t forget to enter the giveaway before you leave!

JORD “Frankie” Wooden Watch

I don’t really dress nice very often. We’ve established this. No collar, no buttons, no bracelets, necklaces, rings… Well, one ring. But overall I’m a pretty basic dude.

However!

I do love watches. The only problem is I can NEVER remember to put one on. And on the slim chance I do, it’s so itchy/heavy/irritating/annoying that I end up just slipping it into my pocket.

Side note: Another reason I want to start wearing a watch is to keep myself from pulling out my phone to look at the time so often. Because, as we all know, once your phone is out you might as well check Facebook, emails, texts, etc. So, in an attempt to be more intentional with my time with Jess and, honestly, just get my nose out of my phone all the time, I want to start wearing a watch more regularly.

The trick was finding one that I liked enough to remember to put on, but wouldn’t get on my nerves. So I copied Jessica and got the same one she has (but in a much more manly color).

It’s the Frankie by JORD, and it’s made of a lightweight wood so I can barely even tell I’m wearing it. Plus, it comes in a sweet wooden box with a magnetic top and a little drawer at the bottom. Score!

I love this thing.

Dude Sweet Chocolate Hanoi Fudge

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

After going out for a “Last Wedding of the Year” celebration in downtown Plano, Jess and I moseyed into Dude Sweet with, honestly… no other intention than to just grab a few bites of free chocolate and walk out.

Then came Hanoi.

The guy said, “We’ve got this pretty good Ethiopian Dark Roast Coffee Fudge. Want to try some?” so nonchalantly, as if to deliberately set our expectations low and watch our faces light up once we tasted it.

Jerk.

So I bought some, had a few bites, Jessica’s “lady time” came around (am I allowed to say that?), and the empty box has been floating around the house taunting me ever since.

Clyde May’s Alabama Style Whiskey

Just think about all the time you’ve spent working out that could’ve been spent drinking whiskey… Yeah… Let that sink in for a second.

I have a habit of judging my alcohol purchases by how cool the label looks. I figure… If they put that kind of time into the branding, they’ve put some time into the beverage as well. And for that reason, Clyde May’s wins. It tastes just as good as it looks. But if you can’t find Clyde May’s, just remember: You can’t go wrong with whiskey. Period.

    One Awesome Momma

    • Jessica November 11, 2016 at 11:14 am

      Thanks, girl. The chocolate is SO good. I love the JORD watches. I hope you entered the giveaway!

  • Rebecca Hicks November 11, 2016 at 10:49 am

    That fudge has my (I mean my husband’s??) name written all over it! Good thing about the chocolate is that if I gave it to him, I would get to eat it, since he’s not a big fan of sweets. Win-win. 😉

    • Jessica November 11, 2016 at 11:13 am

      haha. Right? I wish Colton didn’t like it. He was so disappointed when I ate all of them. It just means I have to go back and get some more. haha.

  • Sarah Jean Althouse November 11, 2016 at 12:08 pm

    Oooh the whiskey. That is a great male gift!

    • Jessica November 11, 2016 at 7:11 pm

      Haha. Right? My husband is a simple man when it comes to drinks. A good whiskey with a cool label. haha.

  • Rachel November 11, 2016 at 12:22 pm

    Great ideas! You can’t go wrong with the whiskey!

    • Jessica November 11, 2016 at 7:14 pm

      Right? Never. Haha.

  • Kim November 11, 2016 at 1:07 pm

    To all of my non-kale eating, non-crossfitting and non-stylish peeps out there… HAHAHAHA. Thats a super cool watch. Not my hubbys style but I do know a few men who would love one! Whiskey though, everyone likes that right 🙂

    • Jessica November 11, 2016 at 7:17 pm

      He’s a ham, that Colton. 🙂 They have more styles of watches (unless wood isn’t his thing). Enter the giveaway for yourself. haha

  • Mary Barham November 11, 2016 at 2:14 pm

    these are GREAT ideas for my husband.. it is always hard to fill his stalking up

    • Jessica November 11, 2016 at 7:21 pm

      Right?! I wish he didn’t already have them or I would know what to fill his up with. haha.

  • Nellwyn November 11, 2016 at 3:25 pm

    I also sometimes pick alcohol based on how much I like the bottle! It’s true that branding can make a big difference

    • Jessica November 11, 2016 at 7:23 pm

      It absolutely can! Even restaurants with great branding do so much better.

  • Kaley November 11, 2016 at 4:13 pm

    If only my fiancé wasn’t allergic to chocolate, liked whiskey, and liked the wood style 😣 He’s super hard to shop for, as you can imagine.

  • dixya @food, pleasure, and health November 11, 2016 at 6:09 pm

    you sound so much like my boyfriend..he would definitely love that watch!!!!! i believe there is a dude’s chocolate, which i need to visit!

    • Jessica November 11, 2016 at 7:31 pm

      There’s a few in Dallas. We live dangerously close to the Plano one. haha. I hope you entered the giveaway! Maybe you can get him a watch for Christmas.

  • Katie @ Talk Less, Say More November 11, 2016 at 7:43 pm

    I think he’s allowed to say your “lady time” <- that totally cracked me up!

    • Jessica November 11, 2016 at 7:51 pm

      Haha. Oh, absolutely. 🙂 I cracked up when I read that.

  • Jessy November 11, 2016 at 8:14 pm

    Love my JORD watch! Such unique pieces!

    xo, Jessy | http://www.currentbliss.com

    • Jessica November 11, 2016 at 9:21 pm

  • Jessica Sheppard November 11, 2016 at 9:01 pm
