Fountain of 30

December 5, 2012 • Fashion Blog, Holiday

Let’s hear it for the boy….shall we? Now, I don’t know about you, but my man is IMPOSSIBLE to shop for. I mean completely impossible. He is picky and claims he is hard to fir. So I usually ask him to be really specific…as in just send me a link to what you want! However, I searched long and hard to find these gifts that I think any man in your life would be happy to receive. Including mine!

1. John Varvatos Classic Navigator Sunglass With Guitar Head Detail, $220

These are some cool shades. And with some guitar head details? No air-drums necessary.
