This is also relevant for Husbands, Brothers, and Male Colleagues.

Plus, this is what I would 100% use for MYSELF too because if I’m buying for my husband, I get to use it too!

To be honest, I will ask them what practical things they really need and if it’s within my budget, I will get it for them. Daryl got me an Air Purifier and it is the best gift in my living room.

Here are some useful but aesthetically pleasing home items from Hip Van!
