2007 Holiday Gift Guide: For him

Today we kick off the first of our completely editorial Holiday Gift Guide posts- meaning that although the posts are sponsored, the gift selections aren’t. This first post is dedicated to HIM, whether he’s your husband, boyfriend, father, brother, etc. We’ll post the next Gift Guide on Monday. Bookmark this page and come back regularly!

This Holiday Gift Guide is sponsored by Orbit Baby.

The Orbit Infant System,a favorite of jet-setting celebrities, combines sophisticated designwith helpful, ergonomic functionality. The modular, expandable systemis a world-class solution for taking your child on the go – sensibly,safely, and always with style. Have baby, will travel.


Slings were once a "mom thing" but that stigma is changing. We’ve been spotting more and more men opt for this way of toting their tots around and it makes us beam with pride. The Peanut Shell Sling (used by Brooke Shields and and Marcia Cross) offers three basic slings that come in larger sizes and in male-friendly styles like solid cotton and microfleece. Give the Dad or Grandpa in your life an extra pair of hands for Christmas.


The iPhone was the coolest product out, but it has been replaced by the iPod Touch, get most of the cool features of the iPhone without the nuisance of a monthly phone bill (and questionable carrier service) with the iPod Touch. Keep your old cell phone and let your music be your guide, with a 3.5-inch widescreen display and wi-fi browsing, you’re pretty much complete. And don’t even get us started on the super-cool touch screen! (Apple.com is offering free engraving and free shipping on their Gift Guide items.)

If he already has an iPod, stuff his stocking with an iTunes gift card.


The 24 Season 6 DVD Set hits shelves on December 4, just in time for the holiday season. Let him catch up with his favorite show. With the writers on strike it may be the only ’24’ fix he can get for a while!


Give him the gift of the ULTIMATE shave with the Jack Black Pure Performance Luxury Shave Set. Packed in the box are Pure Performance Shave Brush, a 8 oz Supreme Cream Triple Cushion Shave Lather, and a Premium Turkish Shave Towel. The kids will love cuddling close to their Daddy when his prickly stubble is all gone. (Free shipping at SkinStore.com.)


Diaper bags have become beautiful and stylish and men everywhere are groaning. He really doesn’t want to lug around your pretty (and GIRLY) diaper bag when he’s on Dad Duty. So give him a bag like Skip Hop’s Expo in Canvas-Blue Camo that speaks to him! The rugged camo print is manly and yet stylish enough that Mom might even want to use it.


Help him find his way back home easily with a GPS device like the Garmin nüvi 660 Pocket Vehicle GPS Navigator

. Each model comes with it’s own bells and whistles but we like that this one has a super-bright, 4.3-inch widescreen and integrated Bluetooth wireless technology with a mic and speaker lets you make hands-free mobile phone calls. He is sure to be WOWed when he opens this present.


If your man is a gamer, you’re likely to already know all about Halo 3. If your man has been holding out on buying the game though, this game will buy you major brownie points. Just make sure he plays it when the little ones are in bed, as it’s rated M (Mature 17 or Older)!
