Mamanista’s Gift Guide for Grownups

Let’s not forget the grown ups!! We like presents too, right? Besides, we firmly believe that you are never too old for toys.


1. A little bling from Stella and Dot

Who wouldn’t want to don this gorgeous Olivia Bib Necklace at this year’s New Years Party? Classy and a fab splash of color.

2. Fabulous handbag

I’m not sure I know any girl who would pass this up! For the best deals on handbags, head to Gilt. This Kate Spade GORGEOUS little beauty was originally $398 – but on Gilt its only $198! Those are the kind of deals you’ll find. (You can score killer deals on watches as well!)

3. InStyle & People Style Watch

What better way to keep her updated on all the up-to-date fashion news than a subscription to Instyle Magazine and People Style Watch? They have a special: 5 issues for only $1 each!!  It’s literally the gift that keeps on giving.

4. Make-up Kit

Having the Ultimate Beauty Kit from Pixi Beauty is the equivalent to a stocked toolbox. Any girl who gets this will be set for the year.

5. Perfume

There is nothing better than showing up at a party, and everyone exclaiming, “You smell SO good! WHAT are you wearing?” This eau de Taylor Swift is particularly sweet.

6. Cooking Light and All You Magazines

For the foodie in your life – get issues of All You  and Cooking Light for $1 per issue!

7. Wrist Candy

Sure, it helps you know what time it is. But it’s just so pretty


1. Wine Vacuum

One of the few instances he’ll actually take you up on requests to use the vacuum. This makes a great gift: it works great, is a recognized brand and it is pretty inexpensive!

2. Bond 50

It’s, like, every Bond. Ever. And you’ll have the added benefit of watching it over and over with him. :) Hello, Mr. Bond.

3. Radio controlled anything

Just trust us. If it has a remote control? He’ll love it.

4. Olympus tg-1 camera

This is a great camera. And the best part? It’s waterproof, bump-proof, drop-proof and basically indestructible! So even if the kids borrow it or he decides to take it rock climbing, you can relax.

5. Happy Socks

How fun is this Happy Socks gift set? Don’t forget GiltMan for shopping! This set – normally $45 – is only $25 on Gilt!

6. Vintage Nikes from J. Crew

These are just plain cool! No matter what your guy’s personality is, it would be hard to resist these babies!

7. Soapstone Whiskey Stones

A classy way to keep your (holiday) spirits cool without diluting the taste of the drink.

BONUS:  iPad Mini

Guys need the latest gadgets…. and so do girls!! And this one is so little and cute (shhh – don’t tell him we said that)!
