Holiday Gifts for Men (and a $100 Red Envelope Giveaway)

by Lisa Thompson on November 20, 2011 · 97 comments

in Christmas Deals,GIVE AWAYS,Uncategorized

I think most of us have a few people on our list every year who are hard to shop for.  For me, that person is my dad.  Part of the problem is that I’m not great at shopping for gifts for men.  The other problem is that my dad has everything!

Thankfully, I’ve found the perfect place to find gifts for hard to shop for people:  Red Envelope.

Red Envelope has a variety of exclusive, unique, high-quality gifts for everyone on your list…many of which can be personalized!  After perusing the site, I found some leather gift ideas that would be perfect for my dad!  The only difficult part was narrowing it down to just 1!

After much debate, I decided to go with this Leather Excursion Messenger Bag and it is absolutely perfect!


The Leather Excursion Messenger bag was inspired by wartime cavalry bags and map satchels and is crafted from the finest quality top grain leather.

This bag is canvas lined and has a roomy interior with pockets to keep things organized.  This bag also has exterior pockets for things you want to keep handy.  The bag has antiqued bronze hardware and it latches very securely so you don’t have to worry about losing anything important.  And the leather is absolutely divine!

RedEnvelope has something for everyone on your list!  And one lucky readers is going to win a $100 RedEnvelope Gift Certificate!

I have a few people that are very hard to buy for. Mostly, my Dad and my Father in Law. It’s so hard to come up with ideas of gifts that they could use and would really enjoy.
Thanks so much.
