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.

Jhumka earrings are a type of traditional Indian earring that are typically bell-shaped and feature a dangling design. The earrings are often made of gold or silver and may be adorned with gemstones, beads, or other decorative elements.

The name “jhumka” comes from the jingling sound the earrings make when they move, similar to the sound of a bell.

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.

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… let’s get those guys clothed!

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!

Two men exchange gifts, happily opening each one.
Receiving the letter J inspired gift can leave you pleasantly surprised!

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!

  • Athletic fit jeans
  • Loose fit jeans for men
  • Relaxed fit jeans for men
  • Everlane 4-way Stretch Organic (Vic’s pick) for comfort and quality.
  • Ambercrombie & Fitch Athletic Skinny Jeans (Vic’s pick)
  • American Eagle + Athletic Fit Jean (Vic’s pick)

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.”

Jeans for men with no butt

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?!?

Best jeans for short men

The website Under510.com offers jeans 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.
