For your man

Would your guy be totally embarrassed if a huge bouquet of roses showed up at his workplace on Valentine’s Day? Because if he would then you have a moral obligation to make that happen and sign the card with, “Have a wonderful day, Peaches! Love, Mom.”

In addition to that here are a few ideas. My two favorites: one, the coffeegrams from Tonx, such a unique idea from a company that truly understands the process and experience of the morning cup of coffee. I love their enthusiasm and spirit for a daily ritual so many of us share.

Two, when I finished reading Mountains Beyond Mountains, a book about Paul Farmer (doctor, Harvard professor and founder of Partners in Health) I immediately read it again. I feel totally transformed by this man and his mission. The depth of his humanity will knock you over again and again. I want to share this book and dissect it with everyone I know. Is it an odd choice for a male gift guide? No. In fact, when you read it you’ll think it should have been the only thing on here.
