It's the Grad Life: A Gift Guide for Men on a Budget

Hey Friends!

It's the Grad Life Christmas gift guide

This post has been so fun to put together. I mentioned last week in my Gift Guide for Her post (here) that I wanted to complete shopping before December 11th. I am realizing that it was a lofty goal! The men in my life are the hardest to shop for. Dad & Zack always end up being the last people on my shopping list. Therefore, I decided to make this shopping guide to help me & others :)

This guide includes several gifts perfect for all budgets. As a college student, money is tight. When deciding on my spending limit, I plan for one "big" present and a few little presents. 

It's the Grad Life, Gift Guide for Him Christmas 2015

Over the years (this will be our 8th Christmas together!) I have invested in "classic" gifts for Zack. 

Last year, I bought him a G-Shock watch at Nordstrom Rack. I had to sneak it into the car because we were out of town for a concert :) I was so proud about how I saved ,more than I spent, that it took all I had not to ruin the surprise!
So far I have bought a few items on my gift guide, but I can't say which ;)
