Advent Calendar for Men

Advent Calendar for Men

Sometimes it isn’t always easy to buy for the men in our lives. I hope these simple ideas help get your wheels turning. For the last few years I have made my husband an advent calendar. It has evolved from little notes each day in December to this shoe-hanger-turned-gift-giver. Below is a list of some of the items that I have included in his calendar in the past.

Some general tips:

  • Check Groupon - they have a great day ideas at super discounted prices.

  • Get creative with Amazon prime. You can order quite a few little stocking stuffer’s and not have to pay shipping.

  • I have good luck at our local CVS or Walgreens for snacks and little gifts.

  • Investing in gift sets such as Counterman go a long way (divide it up and you can knock out 4 days of gifts!)

  • It helps if you pick items up throughout the year so that you don’t have to scramble at the end of the year.
