Finding fun, useful & one-of-a-kind gifts for my sweet fam is one of my FAVORITE parts of the holiday season! Even though I’m not a big shopper— when it comes to the holidays, I always aim to get my family & friends things that they’ll genuinely love and use for years. And that often requires some digging! So I always say, if I’m going to be searching high and low for it anyway, I might as well share my findings with you. 😉 The more the merrier, right?
This year, we’re breaking up our annual gift guide into three separate posts: this one for families (husbands, kids and babies), one for the women in your life and one for homebodies & health lovers to make browsing & picking gifts for your favorite people even easier.
Gifts for healthy men:
2. PP Charcoal deodorant : this one specifically is the BEST, and truly works and is great for guys or girls honestly (I use it too, especially in the postpartum year)!
