This year, I feel like the holidays have been impossibly busy, and I am doing my best to make sure that everything is as stress-free as possible. One thing that I plan to do is make my holiday shopping list as streamlined as possible but still make sure I give thoughtful presents too! One way I'm doing this is with COTY Holiday Gift Sets, because there are so many options to fit everyone from my niece, to my boyfriend, and everyone in between!
In particular for my boyfriend, I knew that I was going to get him a fragrance right away for the holidays. For one thing, he's a guy who likes to "suit up." He can kick back with the best of them, but when he's in professional mode, he has his whole set-up on lock-down: tailored suit, pocket square, and a manly fragrance. It's pretty dashing if you ask me. :)
In fact, his scent is one of the first things I remember for our first date. We had texted, talked on the phone for hours, and I had met up with his friends and him, but we hadn't spent any time alone together yet. Maybe it's crazy, but we decided to go to a beer festival TWO HOURS away from where I lived. When he picked me up, I remember stepping into his car, and it had the scent that I now associate with him, in the good way for sure. :) It was easily the longest first date I've ever been on, which turned out to be a very good thing!
So for the big, strong man in my life, I bought one of the manliest scents I could think of: Stetson! [ By the way, he didn't ask me to say that... I really do think of him as my own personal cowboy protector :) ] I decided to give him the gift set of the Cologne and After Shave, which I thought was an even better present. Besides, I love the scent and he wears it so well. :)
Once I added the Stetson gift set to my shopping list, I knew I could find it at Walgreen's in the fragrance aisle during one of my errand runs. I found it on the highest rack, so it's literally top shelf! However, it doesn't have a top shelf price, and I even have a link where you can find a coupon to save even more. Score!
I actually could not wait to give him the present, so we had an early gift exchange! Lucky for me, he brought it up because he was just as antsy to give me my present. :) I'm so happy I could sneak him a present before our family celebrations. Also, I am treated to the scent all month long, so there's no complaining from me... :)
