Winston’s List | What Men Really Want for Christmas

Finding the perfect gift for that special guy in your life can be a daunting task and one that can really stress a girl out if she doesn’t know where to start. I am not the expert on what men really want, especially not for Christmas, which is why I turned to several of my guy friends who epitomize style, class and the ultimate gentleman. I asked each guy to give me a list of items they are coveting this holiday season.

It’s down to crunch time! Christmas is just around the corner and I still find myself crossing off things on my list. I have three younger brother who all have different tastes, personalities and style. I turned to my friend Winston for his Christmas wish list to find some inspiration for giving fabulous presents on December 25th and he didn’t disappoint. Winston is a Washingtonian about town who works hard and plays hard.  He has a heard of gold is is very passionate about giving back to charities.  He works tirelessly with E.L. Haynes Public Charter School in Washington, DC to provide access to quality education for children in our nation’s capital.  One of the presents he’s hoping for this holiday season is for friends and family to make a donation to support the school.

Winston runs his own public affairs firm so he’s always on the go. He needs a phone that will work as hard as he does and connect him to his clients instantly no matter where he is. He asked Santa for a Windows 7 phone, which has been touted by critics for its speed and intuitiveness.  For play time, he wants the new Xbox 360 Kinect, which brings games and entertainment to life in extraordinary new ways without using a controller.  
Winston lands on best dressed lists year after year so I wasn’t surprised that he wanted some threads to update his closet. He wants some Smathers & Branson needlepoint belts and accessories and Hugh & Crye shirts, which I’ve been hearing some really good things about.  I applaud Winston for shopping locally and thinking globally.  The Hugh & Crye shirts are made locally in Washington, DC.
I hope you find some gift ideas from all the guys who contributed to the Holiday Gift Guide. If all else fails, a Visa gift card is the perfect present to get your favorite guy shopping online for his must have item after the holidays. Who doesn’t love sales? All my guy friends do. Happy Holidays!
