We asked fellow industry insider, mother of 2 boys and new blogger Ridgely Brode to guest edit a men’s gift guide for KiC. At work, Ridgely is a partner and co founder of the p.r. powerhouse Paul Wilmot Communications. But off duty, this working mother is all about her family. I spied a guy’s gift post on her blog Ridgely’s Radar and begged her to do one for us too.
Let’s face it, shopping for the men/boys in our lives can be difficult. Ties and sweaters are a big yawn and our men don’t want fancy doodads either. A chain saw? Hot Sauce? You bet! My husband wants everything on this list.
Thank you Ridgely!
Cool watch by Doxa.

The chainsaw is for mid-range use. I know my husband wants this even though he has a chain saw.. he would be so psyched if it was under our tree!
