a.k.a. also our ‘excuse’ of a blog post to support our irresponsible decision to raid MR PORTER’s 30% OFF SALE and Holiday Gift Guide for ourselves.
We’re only looking out for our fellow boys out there — forget the pack of Hanes socks and give a gift that doesn’t suck (we think). Consider this our “What To Buy on MR PORTER” manifesto, just in time for Cyber Monday. May the odds be ever in your favor.
(it’s also VERY important to note that when MR PORTER has a sale, YOU JUMP ON IT)
Here’s our quick and easy guide on what to buy for all of the different types of guys in your life:
for the ‘OMG, YOU’RE SO SMART’ guy (the techie)
Personal idols include Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg and the guys who created Instagram, whatever their names are. Loves B&O headphones, Leica cameras, and talking about Uber.
for the ‘OMG, YOU’RE SO PRETTY’ guy (the grooming guru)
Hobbies include using sheet masks on the daily, accruing Beauty Insider points at Sephora, and talking about how he only washes his hair once a week. BONUS: smells like a bed of roses with the tiniest scent of musk — scrumptious!
for the ‘OMG, YOU’RE SO SPORTY’ guy (the athleisure obsessee)
Wears joggers more often than jeans, has a definite opinion on Kaepernick as a quarterback, and treats his Equinox membership as a religion. BONUS: his entire closet consists of Nike apparel.
for the ‘OMG, YOU’RE SO ARTSY’ guy (the creative)
Takes a perfect Instagram photo EVERY SINGLE TIME — HOW DOES HE DO IT?! — reads The New Yorker, and draws the best doodles on Snapchat when under the influence. NOTE: significant overlap with the “OMG, YOU’RE SO SMART” guy.
for the ‘OMG, YOU’RE SO HARD TO SHOP FOR’ guy (a.k.a. the guy who already has everything)
How to spot? Always has the newest iPhone. Also probably owns or talks about owning a Tesla one day.
For every other guy that we left out, sucks for them. JUST KIDDING! We’re just too tired right now and can’t fathom writing much more, so here’s a better option… buy them something on sale! HURRAY! WE LOVE SALES!
Happy Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Cyber Week! LET’S GO SHOPPING.
