Gift Guide: For Him!


Welcome to my second gift guide this year, and it's all about the men!  I hope you enjoyed the first one for travel bugs, because I enjoyed putting it together for you.  I admit that this time, I had just a bit of help from my man with some of these gifts.  For the most part, I picked out items myself and got a stamp of approval, so I know there will be something that the guy in your life would love to receive!

Like the previous gift guide, I included a bunch of Shop Small Saturday Showcase features, as well as a few that I hope to write about in the future!  All in all, I handpicked thirty items to add to your holiday shopping list.

Now, let's get to the gift guide!

Eat It

Holiday Gift Guide: For Him on Diane's Vintage Zest!

  1. Habanero Chili Sauce from All Good Sauce $8 : This spicy-sweet sauce is actually made in conjunction with M. Greenwood Jams below. This vibrant sauce is flavorful, but not for the feint of heart!

  3. Jalapeño Lime Jelly from Preservation Society $10 : The jalapeño lime jelly from Preservation Society is so many tastes rolled into one: spicy, sweet, and sour. A great mix of flavors and it looks like a rainbow in a jar.  Pretty!
  4. Chimichurri Sauce from Elvio's $14 : Known as the "ketchup of Argentina", a good chimichurri sauce in a bottle is actually impossible to find.  No longer!  This chimichurri great on meats, vegetables, and even with chips.

  6. "Classic" 4-Pack of Infinity Sauces $23.20 : I taste-tested every single sauce from Infinity Sauces, so I know the way to go is the four pack of classics.  The unique flavors are also available individually, if you want to get the whole spread!
  7. Bourbon Mustard from M. Greenwood Jams $9 : This bourbon mustard is ah-maz-ing.  In addition to the jams they make, M. Greenwood makes some mustards, which I had the opportunity to taste test as well.  Delicious!


And that's all for now!  I hope you found something for the manly man on your list, or perhaps yourself.


What will the man on your list be receiving this year?  (I promise, I won't tell!)
