When it comes to men’s wedding attire, start with a full suit and work your way up or down depending on the formality of the occasion.
| DRESSING UP | : Always bring a suit coat and tie along for a more formal ceremony or reception (silk ties tend to read more formal than knit, so choose according to the occasion). A button down and slacks might be all a less formal or outdoor wedding calls for.
| DRESSING DOWN | : Just loosen (or lose) the tie and jacket as the nights heats up for a more relaxed vibe but still wedding-appropriate.
Watches are my weakness. Guys can never have too many watches, in my opinion. There is so much variety – from digital to analog, metallic to silicone, and sleek to statement – that no two watches are the same. Below are some great options, all under $300.
Not to excuse procrastinating buying gifts for Mother’s Day until the last minute, but if you end up in that situation you still have time to pull something together. Here are a few ideas:
Get it on camera: Film each of the kids saying something they love about her and throw it together in a video clip with a basic smart phone app. Add some music or other effects to make it something she’ll always remember.
Crafts: Help the kids make a gift from scratch. Think of something she is likely to use a lot and let the kids make it their own. Decorating a mug like this one is a fool-proof gift.
Family photo: Frame one of her favorite family photos in a cool picture frame.
Splurge: People spend a third of their lives in bed so splurge on that new bed she has had her eye on. (Or in Christine’s case, the other half of the bed she meant to order.)
