Kate says . . .Christmas Gift Guide for Men

It’s that time of year when we get to spend time with family and friends and eat lots of yummy food and treats. As we focus on celebrating our Savior’s birth, we also have the unique opportunity to celebrate Christmas with your hubby, and at the same time to love on him in a special way. Here is this year’s Christmas gift guide that will knock your man’s socks off and just bless him too!

Laugh Together

It has been said that laughter is the best medicine. I agree! There is nothing quite like when Brad and I start laughing about something and then we just can’t stop. Sometimes you laugh so hard it hurts physically, but you feel so good emotionally. Laughter even leaves you feeling connected.


What are things you two love to do that bring you laughter and joy? Think on it this year and find a way to bring laughter to your holidays. Perhaps it’s one of your favorite funny movies or taking a trip down memory lane. One of our favorite things to do is to watch our family favorite comedian, Tim Hawkins. He is so real and just makes you laugh. His Greatest Hits & Greatest Bits DVD is fantastic, or you could go see him in person. It’s sure to bring tears to your eyes-but totally in a fun way!
