Holiday Survival Guide + Man Crates

When it comes to the holidays, there’s just certain things I NEED by my side. All the time. No questions asked. Every year. Because when it comes to surviving the holidays, it’s best to always keep your ‘ole faithfuls around. At least that’s the way I see it!

Today I’m sharing some of my MUST HAVES for the holiday season, and would love to hear what your must haves are as well!

My survival guide includes both items I have already have and use every year around this time, as well as items that are always great gift ideas, time and time again. A new sweater? You bet. Flannel pajama pants? Can’t go wrong there!

Shopping for girls is always so easy it seems. Find something shiny, plaid, or just “cute”, and you’re good to go. But shopping for a guy? Woof. That’s always enough to put a damper on my shopping experience because I always have the hardest time thinking of something! Men seem to “survive” differently than we do. Do any of your husbands/dads/brothers always say, “I don’t want anything. Just get me cash.” *Insert eye roll*.

Thankfully, I think I’ve found the solution! Enter: Man Crates. I had never heard of them until just recently and I think they are absolutely hilarious! Disclaimer: I was not compensated to write this, or given free product – they simply asked to team up for a fun post idea, and I loved their product so much I was super excited to share it with you!

Man Crates is exactly what it sounds like – a specifically themed crate full of cool gifts for men. And here’s the kicker – you have to open them with an attached crowbar! As an example, here are 3 I think are brilliant:

1. The Zombie Suppression Crate

1

2. Retro Gamer Crate

2

3. Exotic Meats Crate

Aren’t those so fun? There are tons to choose from, so go take a peek around!

What would you put in your holiday survival guide? Which man crate would you love to get someone? Have you ever heard of Man Crates? What’s something on your Christmas list?

    Man Crates- that’s so funny! I totally agree– guys are impossible to shop for. I had my Christmas shopping for my mom, sister, and girlfriends done a long time ago, but have yet to find anything for my dad, brother, or guy friends!

      Guys are tough to buy for, I feel like they either don’t “want anything” or what they do want, is some super expensive gadget πŸ™‚
