My boyfriend already has a request in for the bacon pancakes ;)

This just might be my favorite list thus far. I'm pretty sure I say that every time though... but regardless! My favorite!

maggie said...

this is a fun list! i have two brothers and i think they are impossible to shop for.

Tasha said...

These are great ideas!

Ah, and I thought the umbrella was a romantic 'sharing' one...

cali bird said...

A bearded cap! Get outta town, that's brilliant! Forget the boys, they can grow their own. I need one!

alicia abood said...

joanna, those shark and fit s & p shakers are my favorite! i found them at a cool garden shop here in chicago and have been wanting to go back to buy them for my aunt, uncle and cousins who live in miami and have such a fascination with Shark Week it's ridiculous.

alicia abood said...

shark and fin, oops :)

Joanna Goddard said...

heather, i thought the same thing at first! :)

k_darling said...

Thank you!! The whiskey cologne is perfect for my husband and is something he'll never see coming.

My husband loves the mustache hat- though the website says $77 rather than $135, bringing it nicely under the 100 mark!

Laura Trevey said...

those umbrellas are the GREATEST. A Dutch friend lent me his when I was in very rainy Holland last spring and they really work. I don't understand why they haven't been ripped off my the street vendors yet!

Whiskey cologne, that does sound interesting, and incredibly masculine. I'm curious what it smells like.

kiwi wants to put bacon on literally everything... these pancakes would be right up his alley!

Louise said...

I need to have that pancake mix in my life, yum!

Custom T-shirts said...

Thanks for sharing. If you are looking to promote your brand in a unique way or want to add that special touch to your gifting solutions, an ideal option is to use customized gifts like t-shirts, pens, mugs, bags which have your company logo imprinted on them.
