Additionally, some experts have expressed skepticism about the product and its claims. It’s important to note that individual results may vary and that Jawzrsize should be used in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise regimen for best results. (source: GQShape)

Gifts that start with J for Her

If you’re looking for a gift for a special woman in your life, jewelry is always a great option. Here are some J-themed jewelry gifts that she is sure to love:

Jean Paul Gaultier dress

This is a bit of a cheat – the link goes to Jean Paul Gaultier knock-offs. I’m not into fashion, but admittedly fascinted by Jean Paul Gaultier’s creations. Jean Paul’s use of graphic printed dresses hinges on the bizaare.

Jean Paul Gaultier’s fashions are known for their unique and bold designs that often challenge traditional gender norms and cultural stereotypes. Gaultier’s collections often blend elements of streetwear and haute couture, creating a distinctive and edgy style.

Jean Paul Gaultier inspired dresses:

He is also known for his use of unconventional materials, such as metal, leather, and PVC, in his designs. Gaultier’s designs frequently incorporate elements of pop culture, music, and art, and he has collaborated with a wide range of artists and performers throughout his career.

Additionally, Gaultier has been a vocal advocate for diversity and inclusivity in the fashion industry, using his platform to challenge beauty standards and promote body positivity. Overall, Gaultier’s fashion designs are known for their creativity, innovation, and boundary-pushing approach to style. (source: Vogue)

Jojoba Oil

If you are looking for a unique and thoughtful gift that starts with J, consider giving Jojoba Oil. Jojoba Oil is a natural oil that is derived from the seeds of the Jojoba plant. It is a popular ingredient in skincare products due to its many benefits.

One of the main benefits of Jojoba Oil is that it is an excellent moisturizer. It is similar in structure to the natural oils produced by our skin, which means it is easily absorbed and doesn’t leave a greasy residue. This makes it a great choice for people with dry or sensitive skin.

In addition to its moisturizing properties, Jojoba Oil also has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. This makes it a great choice for people with acne-prone skin or those who suffer from skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis.

Gifts that start with J for Him

J is for jeans… and Jean Paul Gaultier (maybe not in the same sentence!) Either way, let’s get those guys clothed.

Jeans for men

In honor of the jeans theme, I thought I would pay homage to three jean challenges: jeans for men with big thighs, jeans for men with no butt, and jeans for short men.

If all guys were the same size, it wouldn’t be a problem, would it? Honesty time, I see some of the body types in their jeans, and I really do wonder where they found their jeans. Think of the challenge!

Jeans for men with big thighs

The guys in my family have big thighs, it’s just genetic. It’s been a challenge to always find jeans that can accomodate their range of activity without ripping out – the challenge is real!

The Youtuber Viks Hauls made a video reviewing jeans for guys with big thighs. His budget favorite: Wrangler Regular Tapered Jean made of 90% cotton and 2% spandex. Watch Viks’ video to see which jeans he didn’t like. He also tells you the material percentages of each jean. Good job, Viks!

Stretch jeans are a must for guys with big thighs, but still want to wear the fashionable “skinny jeans”.

Other good advice for guys with big thighs is to size up, but then the concern is heading into “frumpy land.”

Best suggestion is to try different jeans to find the right fit for you.

Jeans for men with no butt

I see a twig of a guy with no butt wearing his jeans like everyone else, and I wonder where does he find his jeans? What a challenge it would be!

I’ve scoured the Internet to get the best advice for jeans for men with no butt. All I can say is that my eyes have been opened! There is such a thing as men’s padded bum underwear. Men’s added underwear for the butt can be a vanity angle, but how about the guys who really have no butt?!?

For you men (and you know who you are) go find yourself some male butt enhancing underwear!

Best jeans for short men

I have a short daughter – lucky for her that I sew and can hem all of her pants up. In the women’s world of clothing, “petite” options open the door to more off-the-shelf fits for short people.

The website does that for short men. Quoting from their website: “We are not clothing designers. We are problem solvers.” They make make jeans, joggers, sweatpants, chinos, dress pants, golf pants, shorts, swimwear, and bathing suits for short men. 

Other resourceful options are jean shopping in the teen section (especially of the GAP store) or trying men’s Levi’s jeans that offer extensive size offerings.

Jean Paul Gaultier for men

Product description: Since Jean Paul Gaultier’s first men’s collection, he has shown men that they can indulge in the forbidden, and that a kilt or dress can be worn with virility. A reminder to them that nothing in life is totally black or white but always a blend.

Just as he made the woman in a corset as the symbol and bottle of his feminine fragrance, Jean Paul Gaultier now transforms the man in a sailor’s T-shirt into both the symbol and bottle of Le Male. Notes include Wormwood, Bergamot, Cardamom, Lavender, Orange Blossom, Cinnamon, Cumin, Wood, Musk, Amber, Vanilla, Tonka Bean.

What could I possibly add to that?
