2017 Gift Guide Series – For The Boys
0

Picking out gifts for men is quite easy! Whether you’re shopping for your dad, brother, boyfriend or hubby, today I’ve rounded up some of my favorite christmas present ideas for all of the men in your life. Some of my favorite go-to brands to shop for men each and every Christmas include Tumi, Burberry, Sonos, J.Crew, East Dane, Mark and Graham and Keihls.

You can’t go wrong with a classic Barbour jacket, cologne, or a Patagonia pop over. My boyfriend has these APL sneakers and loves them! I also want to get him these Ralph Lauren Velvet slippers for all of the black tie weddings we have to attend next year. This bluetooth Sonos speaker is a great gift for any guy and comes in at a great price point – under $200 dollars! If you have a big golfer in the family, I always get my dad these Titleist golf balls each year which are a great stocking stuffer or secret santa present with a $50 dollar price tag. Last but not least, weekender bags are always a great gift – I love this weekend garment bag or this  brown leather monogrammed Mark and Graham weekender.

Don’t forget to shop some my entire gift guide series! I’ve linked to all of the posts below. Have a great Thanksgiving week, friends! Xo. Lauren

Happy New Years: The Ultimate Bar Checklist
0

new-years-eve-champagne-party-ideas

Happy New Years Eve, party people!

I cannot believe 2017 officially begins tomorrow, can you? In case you missed it, I rounded up some of my favorite moments from 2016 and oh, what a good year it was!

In honor of New Years Eve I thought it would be fun to put together the ultimate New Years Eve bar checklist. What’s great about this checklist is that you can use it for your party tonight and beyond!

Ever since I moved to the UES, I’ve been dying for a new bar cart. I’ve had my eye on this Williams-Sonoma silver bar cart for quite some time and I think I may just pull the trigger. Other bar cart must-haves: bubbles (Veueve, of course!), Mixers (Vermouth for dirty martinis, bitters and citrus mixers!

Bubbles + More

Must have stocked: Vodka, Scotch, Bourbon, Tequila, Gin, Rum, Orange Liquor, Campari, Grand Marnier and champagne!

Mixers

Vermouth, Bitters, citrus mixers, craft syrups. Let’s not forget the soda water and tonic.

Bar Tools

Shaker, ice bucket + tongsstrainer, jigger, stirrer, vintage coasters, wine and beer opener.

Garnishes

Green olives, fresh berries, herb sprigs, citrus slices, sugars, salts and lots of ice! Adding fresh berries to champagne is one of my go-to moves whenever I host a party. <3

Barware

One should always have on hand: Highballs, tumblerswine glasses and champagne flutes.

Extra Details

It’s all in the details! Don’t forget: fresh flowers (duh), gold striped straws, fun cocktail napkins, a rattan tray and a marble ice bucket!
