New England Guide To Shopping For Him | The Coastal Confidence by Aubrey Yandow



Christmas shopping for Matt is difficult! He is very picky and never gives me any hints on what he might want. So, I’ve pulled together a list of items he has and loves in case you’re stuck on what to purchase for the equally hard to shop for men in your life!

Waxed Canvas Jacket 

Matt has worn this jacket countless times since receiving it for a Brooks Brothers shoot a few months back – as you can see here. Since sporting it around town he’s not only gotten countless compliments but also a lot of inquiries from friends asking where to purchase this stunner. Truthfully, whether you’re shopping for an adult male or college-aged gentlemen – this jacket will be a winner. 

Jersey Shadowbox

Matt and I hope to finish our basement in 2020! In fact, he’s already picked out a few things for his soon-to-be mancave. He wants to show off his jersey collection in these cherry wood shadowboxes. The gold hardware clasps make these boxes unique – and they’re shockingly affordable! Jersey shadowboxes are great for any male sports fan with a growing jersey collection.  


Matt lives in his joggers from Vineyard Vines. So, this year I’m upping his jogger game with a pair of Talentless Sweatpants. Talentless is a brand of leisurewear by Scott Disick that has rave reviews. Matt loves his joggers so this higher ticket pair is worth the investment. 


One of Matt’s favorite gifts he has received is his airpods! He grabs them whether he’s going to the gym or going out to mow the lawn – they’re always in his ears. According to Matt, any guy would love these –  no questions asked!

Leather Toiletry Bag

If you’re having trouble finding a gift for your Dad, brother, or male significant other – this is the gift suggestion for you. Not only does the monogram detail make it extra thoughtful – the bag is also wicked practical! Plus, this may not be a gift a guy would typically buy for himself.

Courant Wireless Charger

Since I’m always forgetting to charge my phone at night, I’m getting one of these Courant Wireless Chargers for both myself and Matt this holiday! These chargers will give each of us a designated place to charge our phones all while keeping the nightstand clean and organized. 

Away Luggage

Matt and I desperately need new luggage. We’ve traveled mostly by car for quick weekend trips lately with our duffle bags in tow. But, duffle bags don’t do the best job of keeping your clothes organized in transit.

Leather Loafers

New England is notoriously hard on shoes, so I always recommend updating your shoe collection this time of year. Whether you’re gifting him a new pair of Leather Loafers or a classic pair of leather boots you can’t go wrong!
