Luckily, the in-store Black Friday craze seems to be (mostly) a thing of the past, and you can get good deals online this entire weekend through Cyber Monday.

We all know the men in our lives can be the hardest to shop for, with ads always suggesting they only like BBQ gadgets and beard trimmers. So, whether you’re hunting for deals or just want to find that perfect gift for your special someone, father, grandfather, or son, check out some of our picks down below.

 

The Steel Shop –  Franco Link Engravable Bracelet

With varying sizes and finishes in gold, silver, and gunmetal, a personalized bracelet from The Steel Shop is the perfect way to go. For the man in your life that isn’t super flashy, a simple bracelet will spice up any outfit and a meaningful engraving takes the gift to the next level.

 

 

 

MONOGRAM – No.08

What better gift to give than some premium flower? Try some No.08, the first-ever light from MONOGRAM, the cannabis line introduced by Shawn ‘JAY-Z’ Carter.

  • This strain hits quick and has a lighter, more serene feel compared to Monogram’s previous strain launches
  • A particularly pungent strain with strong diesel and earthy notes
  • Relaxing effects that starts with a head calm then smoothly transitions into a tranquil full-body buzz
  • Available in the brand’s Loosies, 2g Flower, and 4g Flower product types

Supervsn – Clothes

Getting the perfect gift for your man while supporting a small, Black-owned business in the process is as good as it gets.

Supervsn is one of the hottest streetwear brands in the game with hats, shorts, pants, and tees that will elevate anyone’s wardrobe with staple, casual pieces.

 

NBA League Pass

There’s nothing worse than sitting down to watch a basketball game and realizing it’s not playing in your area…with NBA League Pass, that guessing game goes out the window.

Whether the man in your life already has a subscription that needs renewing or hasn’t made the purchase yet, an NBA League Pass is the perfect Christmas gift. Plus, it requires no shipping. A season of NBA League Pass starts at $120 to watch live games for a single team, or $200 to watch live games from any team.

 

Nespresso – Vertuo Plus Espresso Machine

If your boyfriend, husband, dad, or grandpa is an avid coffee drinker, you can’t go wrong with a Nespresso machine.

Machines are 25% off on the Nespresso’s website this weekend, giving you the perfect excuse to pull the trigger on what could truly be a life-changing gadget. Whether the man in your life goes into the office or works from home, this will save them time and money for years to come–and  they won’t even miss those trips to the coffee shop.

 

Nike – Blazer Mid ’77 Jumbo

If the man in your life loves sneakers, getting them a fresh pair for the new year is a no-brainer.

While the hyped pairs are hard to come by and can’t casually be purchased any day of the week (well, without paying a premium) there are TONS or simple pairs that can help your man fill a gap in his wardrobe. A pair of Blazers can be dressed up or down, going perfectly with some jeans, cargos, or even a suit.

 

Sephora – Skincare Gift Set

Skincare isn’t just for women–duh–so there’s no better time to get your significant other into game with some more sophisticated products.

For the holidays, Sephora has a number of gift sets from brands like Glow Recipe, Tatcha, and First Aid Beauty to set your man up for success. Whether he’s already a skincare junkie or you just want to stuff his stocking with some goods to get him into it, there’s no better time to try some new products.

 

Teremana – Tequila 

There’s no better time to give the gift of tequila than this holiday season.

It’s been a rough year, and we’re not here to judge anyone’s coping mechanisms. If the man in your life is a seasoned cocktail vet–or even just a casual drinker trying to get more acquainted–a nice bottle of tequila is the perfect token of appreciation.  Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s brand Teremana might be new, but it’s already replacing a lot of consumers’ longtime favorite tequilas.

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’ relationship is like a modern-day fairytale — complete with multiple, lavish weddings! See their entire romance timeline.

Former Disney Channel star Nick Jonas and actress Priyanka Chopra are one of Hollywood’s hottest power couples. The pair, whose love story began when the Jonas Brothers singer slid into her DMs, look more in love every time we see them! With news that they’re now sharing that love with a new baby, we’re looking back at the timeline of their romance!

Talk about modern-day romance! The Camp Rock star made the first move by sending his future wife a Twitter DM, which read, “I’m hearing from a few mutual friends that we should meet,” Nick told Vogue. Priyanka replied the same day, “My team can read this. Why don’t you just text me.” The couple had a mutual friend in Graham Rogers, who starred in Quantico with Priyanka and Careful What You Wish For with Nick. The singer later recalled telling Graham, “Priyanka. Is. Wow.”

The pair had texted back and forth for some time and eventually met for a drink at the Carlyle hotel in New York, they told Vogue. They went back to Priyanka’s apartment, where Nick met her mom for the first time. One week later, the duo walked arm-in-arm up the steps of The Met for the 2017 Met Gala. They both wore Ralph Lauren outfits, with Priyanka turning heads in her trench coat-inspired dress featuring a 20-foot train! Priyanka later explained that they attended under the guise of wearing the same designer — nobody had suspected the pair may have been dating. “We were both wearing Ralph Lauren, and we decided to go together. It was fun,” she said during a Jimmy Kimmel Live! appearance. “We were at the same table. I mean, we know each other, so we were just like, ‘Hey let’s go together,’ and I was like, ‘Okay, let’s go together.’ And it just ended up working out.”

The couple gets engaged

Romance rumors had died down for almost a year, until the couple were spotted out and about in the summer of 2018. In late June, Nick shared his first IG Story of Priyanka, seemingly confirming the relationship, and fans couldn’t get enough! Less than one month later, they revealed some very exciting news: they were engaged! Nick got down on one knee in Crete, Greece on midnight after his future wife’s July 18 birthday. He popped the question with a Tiffany & Co. ring, which he had picked out a few weeks prior when he shut down the London store. “I said: Will you make me the happiest man in the world and marry me?” he later recalled. “No joke—she took about 45 seconds. Forty-five seconds of silence.” Of course, Priyanka said yes, and they were officially engaged!

They wed in a traditional Hindu ceremony

The Jonas-Chopra three-day extravaganza was definitely one for the ages! Their days-long nuptials took place in India at the Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur. The luxe palace, which stretches across 26 acres of land, is the sixth-largest private residence in the world. Celebrations began on November 30 with “pre-wedding rituals” Priyanka explained to Ellen DeGeneres in early 2019. “It was just three days. One Indian ceremony and one Western Christian ceremony and one day of pre-rituals which we have in the Hindu wedding,” she said. “Usually, Indian weddings are like a thousand people, at least. We had only 200, which was mostly family – both of us have giant families. We wanted to keep it super intimate.” For the Hindu ceremony, Priyanka wore a ruby red lehenga designed by Sabyasachi.

As for the Western ceremony, Priyanka wore a hand-beaded and hand-embroidered Ralph Lauren gown which took 1,826 hours to create! To top it off, Priyanka walked down the aisle with a 75-foot long veil. Nick’s tuxedo was also designed by Ralph Lauren to complement his bride, and his father Paul Kevin Jonas Sr. officiated the wedding. Talk about a fairytale romance!

When the Jonas Brothers announced their return to the music scene with their hit song “Sucker”, Nick, Kevin and Joe, joined forces with their leading ladies (Kevin’s wife Danielle Jonas, Joe’s future wife Sophie Turner, and Priyanka) for a colorful music video. “I actually didn’t know much about [The Jonas Brothers],” Priyanka previously told Ellen. “Nick and I both didn’t know much about each other, so we did a show-and-tell after we started dating where we showed each other our work from when we were younger — the embarrassing stuff, like the horrible things. It was great. That’s how we got to know each other’s careers.”

Although they walked the carpet together years prior, 2019 marked the first time Nick and Priyanka attended as a couple. Given the theme of the ball was camp, the brunette beauty wore a grey Dior gown, complete with a cape featuring colorful, floor-gazing feathers. Nick suited up in an all-white look with glittering jeweled accents. Their relationship has truly been going from strength to strength ever since, and we can’t wait to see what they do next!

Almost five years since Nick first slid into Priyanka’s DMs, and three years after they tied the knot, the lovebirds became parents for the first time. The couple revealed they were parents on Jan. 21, 2021. “We are overjoyed to confirm that we have welcomed a baby via surrogate,” the two said in statements posted to their respective Instagram accounts. “We respectfully ask for privacy during this special time as we focus on our family.”

The announcement came after Priyanka said that she and Nick were considering starting a family, but not yet. “They’re a big part of our desire for the future,” Priyanka told Vanity Fair. “By God’s grace, when it happens, it happens.”

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas welcome first child via a surrogate 1

 

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas have welcomed their first child via a surrogate.

The 39-year-old actress and Nick, 29 – who tied the knot in 2018 – have announced the news on Instagram, revealing they’re “overjoyed” to have become parents.

Priyanka wrote on the photo-sharing platform: “We are overjoyed to confirm that we have welcomed a baby via surrogate. We respectfully ask for privacy during this special time as we focus on our family. (sic)”

The actress has previously spoken about her ambition to have children.

Priyanka admitted she’s “very fond of children” and that she planned to have kids within the next decade.

In 2018, she shared: “I am a very ‘live in the today,’ maximum ‘live in the next two months’ kind of person. But [in] ten years, I definitely want to have kids. That is, it’s going to happen in the next ten years. Well, hopefully, earlier than that.

“I’m very fond of children and I want to be able to do that.”

Priyanka and Nick were forced to spend much of 2021 apart, due to COVID-19 travel restrictions.

And the Hollywood star admitted the situation was “tough” for them to deal with at the time.

Priyanka – who filmed the drama series ‘Citadel’ in London while her husband was based in the US – said: “This year has been really tough. It was really, really tough to be away from home for an entire year, especially at a time when you can’t travel to see your family.

“I was just alone.”

Despite this, Priyanka insisted they were both understanding of their long-term career ambitions.

She explained: “We talk all the time. We know each other’s hearts. We prioritise each other in everything that we do.

“We’ve had individual careers and we’re both very clear about never interfering in each other’s professional lives because we’re always partners and assets. We’ll have an opinion on each other’s things, we’ll be each other’s champions. But those decisions are predominantly for both of us to take, because we’ve built our careers by ourselves for such a long time.”
