Holiday Gift Guide Part III – The Finale

By November 26, 2015 Gifts, Holiday No Comments

Here it is – the grand finale of my Holiday Gift Guide series. I’m warning you – it’s a little anticlimactic. We’re finishing up with the men and if I’m being honest here – this last post was a bit of an afterthought. But you know, after I started looking around the store, I realized that while gifts for men aren’t necessarily top of mind when you decide to shop at Hatchlings & Hens, we do have some pretty darn good finds that even the most masculine of men would appreciate. Most of them come from our collection of vintage finds, however, there are a few handmade goodies in the list too.

As mentioned in previous posts, please think about shopping small and shopping local this holiday season. I’ve recently seen an advertisement circulating that’s the honest truth. When you decide to shop small and shop local, you’re not just supporting a small business, you’re also paying for a little girl’s dance lessons, a young boys soccer equipment or a once-in-a-blue-moon vacation for a deserving couple. Now doesn’t that feel better than stuffing the pockets of corporate America?!

If you missed my previous posts, you can find the Holiday Gift Guide for Children here and the Holiday Gift Guide for Women here. This last hurrah is short but sweet. So without further ado, the 2015 Holiday Gift Guide…for Men…
