A cactus, about $10, for his desk, since it’s the manliest plant around.

Dude No. 1 Beard Oil to keep his skin soft and make his beard smell spicy and woody, $65.

An awesome Beatles print, $59.99. (Can you spot Yoko?:)

A bike bag, $55, for afternoon adventures together. (You could fit in a hammock!)

A beautiful and timeless book, since he’s now the family photographer. Used from $20.

Pendleton travel mug, $18, to perk up his morning commute.

Lasagna edge pan, $47.95, since you both like the crunchy edges (and what fun for a dinner party!).

A giddy and romantic sunset sail on a schooner in New York City, $50/person. And a kiss.

  5. I love the Beattles print, it´s really nice!!

  6. Joanna, I love your gift guides.

    Over Thanksgiving I was reading the New York Times Holiday Gift Guide. I was flipping savagely through it thinking, “I hate gift guides! I am just not a gift guide person!” Not that it was really that bad or anything, but.

    But then I found your gift guide and it’s SO GREAT.

    I think what makes it so good is that it’s individual/quirky. It has personality!

  7. Your blog is so upbeat. It’s a fun read.

  10. The Beatles print and lasagna pan are totally wicked!!!

  11. the link on the beatles print didn’t work for me. I googled Mr. Dalton and none seem to be active. Any ideas? I’m just dying for this as a gift now!!!

  12. that book looks fabulous- but at a closer look it’s not $9.94…more like $99.00- kind of a big difference!

    (“How to shoot your kids”)

  19. i love these husband gifts! i too am looking for ways to give the boyfriend things that he can actually use along with some whimsical items too…p.s. is it bad of me to wish that yoko wasn’t in the print? i mean, she split up the band! :) no offense yoko, if you’re reading this.
