Black Friday Shopping...for the Hubby!

...Good Black Friday morning! I'm sure some of you are waiting in line, hopefully not freezing, waiting for your favorite store to open and find some great deals. While you wait, read today's guest post by Arianna from Arianna Knows Best. Happy shopping! FYI-I'm still in bed, snug as a bug!
Finding the Perfect Gift for Your Husband… and You!
If you are searching for ideas for holiday gifts for your husband this year, why not get him something that you can both benefit from? There are many gifts that fit this idea, so you are sure to find something that will be perfect for him.
If your loved one has been working hard all year and loves to travel, why not surprise him with a trip to somewhere tropical? Whether it’s a fancy trip to Miami or a low-key getaway to Hawaii, there are always deals to be found in the winter for vacations. You can have some quality couple time and can return home after your vacation relaxed and ready for the hustle and bustle of daily life!
Another unique gift idea that will benefit both is a subscription for a wine/beer of the month club. You both can enjoy this gift either during a romantic movie night or dinner at home. From international vineyards to a local winery, this gift will allow you to experience wine in ways you never did before. As a new bottle arrives every month, you may find a new variety that will become your new favorite wine!
Is your husband’s favorite striped tie starting to look a little frayed? Maybe take this as an opportunity to update his wardrobe ! Casually ask him what styles he likes to wear, as well as browse through his closet for inspiration. Buy him a nice suit jacket with a modern silhouette or a trendy, yet comfortable dress shirt. Not only will a new wardrobe give him a powerful ego boost in the office, but it will also spice up his date night looks as well!

If there is a new upscale restaurant in your area that has caught your eye, make reservations and celebrate the holidays with a romantic dinner. If your town has other holiday festivities as well, why not add these into your plans before? Catch an exclusive showing of a holiday play or watch a dazzling holiday lights parade. Not only will your husband enjoy a great steak dinner, but also you will get quality time without having to clean up! Adding in a holiday event before the meal might be a great way to start a holiday tradition that you can continue each year!
If you and your husband haven’t made exercise a priority this year, purchase a gym membership for the two of you. Not only will you both shed a few pounds, it’s a great way to spend extra time together after work or on the weekends. These are generally affordable programs, and many gyms also have extras such as a sauna or hot tub to help you relax after a hard workout!

Whichever option you choose, your husband is sure to appreciate any gift you give him this year. Take into consideration what he likes, then make sure it is something you both can use and appreciate. Ultimately, any chance to spend time together is the best gift of all!
