Summertime Slumber

Last week was sweltering. I could barely keep the covers on even with the air conditioning on. This week I’ve finally been catching up on sleep with the cooler nights but I’m thinking about switching out my light comforter and duvet for a handsome quilt set.

It’s the perfect weight and color for summer sleep. Here are some of my top choices but I’m still trying to figure out which sets I’ll mix and match. And with the custom embroidery options, I might give one as a wedding gift this summer too. Which one’s your favorite?

Gifts For: The Beer Lover

Lager, pilsner or stout? Do you know the difference and which glass it should be served in? My husband is quite the beer connoisseur. I’ve definitely grown my taste for it over the years and find wheats to be my favorite. If you have a beer lover in your life, there’s certain to be a brew that’s just perfect for summer-gifting.

For someone that loves them all, give them a beer flight set to show off at home. It comes with a wooden display and notches for all four beers. It’ll knock their socks off! Beer flight sampler, $49

For the groomsman that loves a good draft beer, the traditional beer mug can be frozen to give you a frosty taste at home. Personalize it with monogram or name ($4 extra), Beer mug, $15

The pilsner is a light form of lager and has been enjoyed since the early 1800s. A custom glassware set is sure to please the pilsner lover. Pilsner glass, set of 4, $31.50

It’s a no-brainer to order up a pint. Now offer the same bar staple at home with this handsome set of four pint glasses, customized with your monogram or name ($4 extra). Perfect with a crisp wheat beer and a slice of citrus on the side. Pint glass, set of 4, $20

Father’s Day: Three awesome gifts for the dad that has everything

My dad is super easygoing on just about anything. You can talk him into seeing what ever you movie you want, eating anything, trying anything – he’s pretty fun to hang out with! Thing is, he’s pretty particular when it comes to clothes. He won’t wear a turtleneck or scarf in the winter, he says it “bothers my neck.” And we could be hiking through a horrendous snowstorm be he won’t wear a sweater because “they’re itchy.” Even if it gets freakishly cold out in let’s say, June, he’ll refuse to put on a long sleeved shirt. He’s just weird like that sometimes.

Is your dad hard to buy for? Maybe he has everything he needs but does he have everything he wants? Here are three unique ideas that might just surprise you – and him! While you’re shopping at Tenereze, you receive an automatic 15% off purchases $50 or over. No code needed. **And don’t forget to enter the contest to win a $75 gift certificate.

Fancy That: Ties, Bow Ties and Pins

I love a good, sturdy tie. Even if I can’t wear one, I enjoy going through the myriad of styles, fabrics and prints that men get to choose. It’s their best accessory, I’d say. What’s your man’s tie style? What about your dad’s? Or perhaps he has all the ties he needs already. Why not step it up a notch and gift him a monogrammed tie clip (#6)? He’ll love it.

What to Get the Husband for an Anniversary

In one week my husband and I will be celebrating our third wedding anniversary…and I have yet to get his gift. There are exactly three things that I know about our gift-giving rituals to be true.

1. We can never wait until the day of. I’m overly excitable and he knows it. For my birthday this year he pulled out the aquarium (I’d been wanting fish) and put the pair of earrings in a box, in the bottom of it. There was no water in yet, of course. I practically screamed when I walked into the room. Overly excitable, I told you.

2. We’re very practical. There was no use in trying to hide a five foot tall box, so his parents had to bring out the Dyson vacuum I’d been wanting. (Yes, you read that right). I am in love  with great design, industrial design, to be exact, and Dyson created incredibly functional and gorgeous products. Ours is aptly named “Mike Dyson.” Get it??

3. I’m pretty certain we were both born in the wrong era. He would’ve loved the heyday of the ’70s, the music, the vibe, the revolution. I would’ve loved living in the ’50s, or so I think. Who cares that I have to wear a Maidenform pointy bra or that I fetch the whiskey? There’s something really romantic about stepping into a scene of Mad Men with their exact designs and succinct roles – albeit sexist…Ok, maybe not.  That said, my husband has very classic tastes. I’ve narrowed it down to this short list of items to get him. What would you get your husband for your anniversary?

Left to right: You can’t go wrong with a frosty mug. Whether he’s a root beer or Belgian ale drinker, he’ll love this gift. Beer Mug (personalization options), $15 | My hubby’s a huge fan of this Canadian brewery. Potent and Belgian style, these are tasty beers for the connoisseur. Unibroue High Gravity Set, $10.99 | Keepin’ it old school, monogram or have them embroidered with his name. Men’s handkerchief (monogram options), $24
