Christmas Gift Guide: Top 10 Gifts For Him

It's already December, so we need to get shopping for holiday gifts! As much as I love shopping for myself, I love shopping for others even more. There's something rewarding about finding gifts for people you love... and knowing they'll love what you're picking out for them! Men are the hardest to shop for. They say they don't care what you get them... but they do! So, what do you get the man you love? I pulled together a few of my favorite things. They are all in a masculine color tone and they're pretty "manly" too! Robin's gift guide: For Him! 1. Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman This classic piece was designed by Charles & Ray Eames, and introduced in 1956. The couple's gorgeous designs have stood the test of time, and this chair still looks fresh and current today! If you want to FAB up the chair a bit, you can upholster it in your own leather. Use your imagination, create your own fabulous! Robin's gift guide: For Him!

2. Orrefors "Street" Barware Everyman needs a FAB barware set, you know... to sip his whiskey. A man with his whiskey is SO sexy! This Jan Johansson designed set has a hand-cut grid pattern, resembling the Manhattan streets. The square black stopper is like the icing on the cake. Just gorgeous! Robin's gift guide: For Him!

3. The Beatles

Oh I just adore the Beatles! And this is the cutest picture of the gang, having the time of their lives! Black and white photography works in every room, and EVERY man will want this print in their man-cave.

5. Five Beacons Table Lamp

As I always say, well-lit rooms feel happier. I would light your man's man-cave with this table lamp, made of aged steel. The rough material is shaped in a soft, circular shape, creating the perfect balance of masculine and feminine. Each of the 5 globe bulbs are at 5 different heights, creating so much interest!

Light all four corners of a room. A well-lit room feels happier!

Evenly distributed light means fewer dark corners and shadows in the room.
