Gift Ideas for Dad

He was your first best friend, is always there to offer a helping hand, and gives the best advice (even if he throws in some corny dad humor along the way). A guy this great deserves a gift to match, so this Father’s Day skip the “World’s Greatest Dad” mug and surprise him with something he’ll really love.

gift ideas for dad 1. A shirt from Columbia Sportswear’s PFG line is a no-fail Father’s Day present. Not only will your dad be well-dressed, he’ll also become obsessed with how comfortable and durable these button up shirts are.

2. If he spends weekends out on the green or fishing on the lake, you can’t go wrong with giving him an Under Armour hat this year.

3. Summer days = lake days. Help him prepare for some serious summer fun with a pair of new boardshorts or swim trunks.

4. Buying himself nice clothes might not be at the top of your dad’s to-do list, so take the guesswork out of looking good and surprise him with an 1897 polo!

5. He needs shirts for his off days as well. Try a v-neck tee and help dad elevate his casual style.

6. Our 1897 shorts will be a home run, no matter your dad’s personal style. At only $29.90, these men’s shorts make for an affordable Father’s Day gift your wallet will love just as much as he does.

7. For the guy who already has everything, try a Yeti rambler! These personal drink coolers are tough, hard-wearing, and maintain ice twice as long as plastic tumblers — and it works just as well for hot beverages.

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

“A Mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take”


With Mother’s Day approaching, it’s time to think about what to get the woman who has been there for you since day one.  Forget about flowers since they will only last a week, at most.  Get mom something that she will be able to cherish much longer.

Here are a few Mother’s Day gift ideas that we love:

Love Stitch Fringed Shawl Sweater: love stitch clothing

This is the perfect sweater for a mom who loves a cute layered look. This sweater can easily be styled with a basic cami and simple necklace or worn over a denim shirt for a fashionable look. These fringe sweaters also look cute when worn with either jeans or leggings.  The best part is that it’s crafted with a lightweight fabric and easily transitions from season to season. You can find a wide selection of colors here on our website.

Piko Topspiko tops

Piko tops are undoubtedly one of those most comfortable brand of tops ever made.  They come in so many different styles and colors, so they are super versatile and can be dressed up or down.  Don’t be discouraged about the oversized fit of these tops.  They can be styled in a variety of ways so they are flattering on just about everyone!  Mom definitely needs a few of these in her closet!

Elan Cold Shoulder Tops:

elan_clothing

These are the perfect tops for a mom who is a fashionista!  Cold shoulder tops look great when styled with a pair of skinny jeans and wedges for a more dressy look. She can also pair either of these cute shirts with shorts and a flat sandal for more casual occasions.

Alex and Ani Bracelets:

alex and ani mother's day braceletsIf clothes aren’t necessarily your mom’s thing, jewelry is a great alternative.  Alex and Ani offers a great selection of Mother’s Day bracelets. Choose from the Mom Color Infusion Swarovski Set, the Unbreakable Bond set or a Mom Charm Bangle.  With such sweet meanings, any mom would love to get one of these on her special day.  As an added bonus, there’s no need to worry about what size to buy because these bracelets are one size fits all!

And while we’re sure that your mom would love any of these Mother’s Day gift ideas, we’re equally as sure that she also wants to spend some quality time with you! Presents are wonderful… but presents and dinner are the way to go.

easter_baskets_ideas

Whether you’re shopping for your teenage son/daughter, significant other, or your best friend there’s no age limit on Easter baskets, right? Right.

We have plenty of options at Glik’s to bring a smile to your special someone this holiday and while there’s not a piece of candy or pastel egg in sight, they’re sure to love their grown up Easter basket all the same.

easter_basket_ideas_mens

If you’re shopping for a guy, you can’t go wrong with:

  • An Avid fishing hat. I’ve skipped a bag and opted to use this fishing hat instead.
  • Sanuk flip-flops. While you’re at it, buy a pair for yourself. Seriously, these sandals are heavenly.
  • A Fripp and Folly t-shirt. With southern themed graphics, these comfy tees are great for the outdoors loving guy.
  • A Southern Tide koozie. Warm weather is on the horizon which means so are backyard barbeques and days on the lake. He’ll be happy to have this drink sleeve to keep his beverages cool!
  • A pair of sunglasses. Who doesn’t need a new pair of shades?
  • A Glik’s gift card. Guys are hard to shop for. Take the guesswork out and let him shop for what he really wants.

easter_basket_ideas_womens

If you’re shopping for a young woman, a foolproof assortment includes:

  • A Simply Southern cosmetic case! These preppy bags are cute, practical, and a steal at only $14!
  • Stance Socks. Both comfy and cute, Stance Socks have just as much personality as your favorite chick.
  • A Southern Tide koozie. Because girls need a good koozie just as much as any guy.
  • A Simply Southern t-shirt. She’s guaranteed to love the preppy prints and southern saying on these southern tees.
  • A Simply Southern phone case and car magnet. Preppy accessories are all the rage right now, plus they’ll coordinate perfectly with her new t-shirt. J
  • Sunglasses. Like I said before, who doesn’t need a new pair?

While these gifts are great and I hope this post gives you inspiration, don’t forget the time you spend with the people you love is more valuable and will be cherished more than any present.

Happy Easter and happy shopping!

A Gift Giving Guide for Valentine’s Day

We’re always trying to find the perfect gift to give to our valentine’s and although there are a thousand of ideas out there your just not sure if she will love it! Here is a gift giving guide that will help you pick out the perfect Valentine’s Day gift that she will love!

Alex and Ani

Alex and AniYou won’t go wrong giving your valentine an Alex and Ani bangle this year! And you’re probably thinking there are just way too many bangles to pick out the perfect one that she will love. Well, here is a little guidance for getting her the perfect Alex and Ani bangle!

If she is just starting her collection then I always recommend giving The Path of Life or the Tree of Life bangle. The Path of Life stands for strength, motivation and knowledge. The Tree of Life stands for hope, conservation, and growth. I think these are the two most generic Alex and Ani bangles that would be perfect for just about anyone.

If you don’t think The Path of Life or The Tree of Life are the perfect ones for her then there are plenty of other options. Another one I would recommend is the initials bangles or the birthstone bangles.  These are more personal and you won’t go wrong giving your valentine one of these.Alex and Ani

And the last option I recommend is the Alex and Ani Valentine’s Day Collection. There are many different styles to choose from in this collection. Pictured below is the Love Set of 3 paired with many other Alex and Ani bangles. I personally love this set because it includes the Love Color Infusion Charm Bangle, a metal beaded bangle and a metal and glass beaded bangle all in the Shiney Rose Gold.

Key Chains and Koozies

Natural Life Key ChainsAlthough the Alex and Ani bangles are nice, we have Natural Life key chains and koozies that would also be perfect for your valentine. These cute key chains are a daily reminder to stay positive with quotes like “Don’t look back you’re not going that way” andNatural Life Koozies “I think I’ll just be happy today.” These koozie are always fun and enjoyable. There is a quote on one that I just love and would be perfect for your valentine, “Live by the Sun, love by the Moon.” Evenif your valentine isn’t a girlfriend or wife, these Natural Life accessories would be perfect for either your best friend or sister that could be your valentine this year.

Simply Southern

For your preppy or young valentine, Simply Southern will be the perfect Valentine’s day
gift for her. From several different styles of tees, to accessories, we have the perfect
Simply Southern Valentine’s Day gift that just about any girl will love!

Simply Southern TeeTees

able tees that will be perfect for Valentine’s Day, wearing or gifting. One of my favorites is our brick colored one that has the quote “Do Everything with Love” screen-printed on the back. Another tee that would be perfect for Valentine’s Day would be our coral colored tee that has the quote “Let All That You Do Be Done with Love” screen printed on the back.

Gift Ideas for Last Minute Shoppers

Can you believe there are only a few shopping days left until Christmas?  Me either!  I hate to say it, but I still have a few people to buy for. Nothing like waiting till the last minute I guess. Here are a few last minute gift ideas, for guys and gals, if you procrastinated like I did 🙂

1.  Stance Socks. You may not have liked getting socks for Christmas when you were a kid, but having fun and colorful socks is a must have accessory this holiday season! Stance socks come in a ton of colors and patterns. They have a seamless toe and deep pockets for your heels.  They are the perfect gift for that guy or gal on your list!

5.  Gifts-in-a-jar.  If you are wanting to take the DIY route, gifts-in-a-jar are perfect.  They are simple, inexpensive and fun!  For the gal on your list, you can make a Comfy Cozy gift jar.  Add hot cocoa mix, marshmallows, candy canes and a couple of mugs and you are all set.  You could even add a scarf and gloves to make it even cozier :). For the guy on your list:  a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.  Fill a jar full of all his favorite snack foods:  chips, dip, candy, trail mix and maybe even a few bottles of soda.  I can guarantee any guy would love to receive this gift idea!
