Gift Guide-For the Guys

I’ve been sharing Gift Guides around here but please know I’m only recommending things we have and love or items on our lists this year.   Today, I have a really special gift guide for you that was all Tab inspired.  You should know a couple things about my hubby before checking it out…

1.  Gifts are NOT his love language.  
2.  He’s super practical.

Most years I still get him a few things and out of all the gifts he’s gotten, this is the one he remembers.  And for a post like this when I asked for his thoughts, this is what he gave me.

Yeti Backpack Cooler-This is his hands-down his favorite gift ever and the only thing he wanted me to recommend for you!  Tab uses his at every baseball tournament-so much easier than dragging a cooler to a baseball field.  He throws this on his back and goes.  He also uses this at the beach.  We loaded the cooler down with drinks and snacks, threw it on Tab’s back, and were set!  And any other event you can think of.  We highly recommend it for the man in your life!  BEST GIFT EVER!

This year we’re opting out of gifts for each other and are gonna fit in an extra vacation in 2020.  But if you have a tried and true gift idea for the guys, please share!  What are you getting your man?

*Edited-So sorry this post was late…my picture was making the words disappear this morning.*
And I got a few e-mails with items you guys are gifting the men in your life, so I added those to the post…

Thanks for reading today, friends!

    Chris has a couple of different Yetis in different sizes, and he loves them both so much!

    Every time I see Tab with that backpack, I think Andrew needs one too!

    My husband loves his Yeti gear as well. We have the backpack and the 36 ounce tumbler. He takes the water bottle to work everyday.

    This is a great gift idea for sure! I've purchased a cooler for my hubby as well, he asked for one with a strap, but wonder if he would have preferred a backpack version?
    Another item he's getting is one of those hydro flask bottles.

    Thanks for sharing the gift guides. It's always great to get new ideas!

    We are opting out of gifts this year too! We are giving each other our gym membership and a trip to Aruba. I think my husbands favorite gifts are things he needs but refuses to replace – new goggles for swimming, charging cables, etc. – and they are usually good stocking stuffers. Have a super day!

    Hi Christina..I guess my sense of humor wasn’t easily portrayed through this post? It was supposed to be kind of funny and basically this is the one gift my husband has received that he loves and raves about. So buy nothing else but this backpack cooler for the guys in your life.

    So funny. My husband would probably say the same thing. He has a similar backpack cooler that isn't Yeti but the style is almost identical. He brings it to the pool, walking around the neighborhood saying hi to his friends, games, family parties, anywhere really. I like it because its tall enough to fit a bottle of wine in also!

    Come on Tab! You can do better than this! Stocking stuffers perhaps? Thanks Erika!
