Shopping for my husband isn't really hard, it just takes a little creativity. I always have to find gifts that he normally wouldn't buy himself, but that are practical for his life. If he isn't in uniform then obviously he needs clothing. When he is out in the field I know that he will want to be eating something besides MRE's and he most definitely wants coffee, thats where a jet boil and a portable espresso maker come in handy. When he is off work he loves to be doing some sort of outdoor activity. So I have to factor in all these little details before I can pull the trigger on a gift. One place I decided to look this year was Bonobos, they put together a really cool gift guide for every kind of guy. If nothing else I got a lot of ideas from there.
I am an options person, I need options for just about everything in my life. So now the fun part starts…narrowing it down. Ace says he wants to buy dad "a weally weally small hat". I am on the hunt for a tiny hat now so hopefully I find one that Ace approves of. And I am so excited for the future with the gifts that I will receive from my first born…because who doesn't want a hat that is too small for their head?
