Welcome to Metropolitan Mama’s Christmas Gift Guide for Professional Men & Women.
Below you will find clothes, shoes, gear, decor, and organization products that professional men & women are bound to love (and use!) for Christmas 2022.
Several years ago, a dermatologist recommended that my daughters and I wear tinted sunscreen daily and we've since decided that tinted sunscreen is one of our favorite beauty products! It's lightweight and leaves a lovely, natural glow while simultaneously providing sun protection and moisture. Because you don't need to match skin tones precisely, tinted sunscreen makes an excellent gift! Men and women of any age will also appreciate anti-aging moisturizers from a trusted skincare company.
Most of the best gifts are intangible - warm hugs, close friendships, conversations of depth, time in nature, solitude, or a good night's sleep. When we consider that last gift, however, a cooling, comforting, scientifically-designed pillow can make all the difference. Head over to Bedgear, take the PillowID Quiz, and find the perfect pillow for your sleeping personality.
If you have curly hair and are committed to clean products for your hair care routine, Bounce Curl products have the best possible rating on the Think Dirty App and are free of known carcinogens (cancer causing agents), hormone disruptors, and allergens. The founder is a mom and a scientist who has beautiful curly hair so she personally understands the need to find curly hair care products that work.
From cashmere sweaters to sculpting dress slacks to festive party dresses, you'll find these and so much more at sister companies Chico's and White House Black Market. Both brands specialize in professional pieces with modern touches. They walk the line wonderfully between classic and on-trend so you can be sure that the pieces will last in your closet while also putting you squarely in the up-to-the-minute fashionable category.
For the man who craves excellence (in business, literature, food, or footwear), Samuel Hubbard's Tipping Point Brogue Wingtip Shoes will satisfy. Thoughtfully crafted with premium ingredients, these elegant men's dress shoes are as supportive as they are stylish. With built-in arch support and a cushioning sole, he'll be tempted to wear to these everywhere. They are the perfect pick for flights, meetings, and fun times with the family.
A quality pair of sunglasses is on every man or woman's wishlist - and Serengeti offers sophisticated styles with superior sun protection. Consider the Haywood (pictured left) and Hayworth (pictured right) for holiday 2022.
Serengeti's mineral lenses are made with borosilicate optical glass, which is 20% thinner and lighter than traditional lenses. They are also chemically tempered to ensure scratch and impact resistance. An anti-reflective coating is added to the backside of the lens, canceling the scattering light that causes reflective glare.
This one is for photographers, writers, journalists, and family memory recorders! The SanDisk Extreme PRO Portable SSD provides powerful solid state storage. Nearly 2x as fast as the previous generation! This compact drive allows you to easily back up and organize thousands of photos.
Some of the products in the list below were sent to us to try. Other products are ones that we purchased ourselves or were given by family members and friends. Know that I will always provide both the pros and cons of each featured product. You are welcome to send any follow-up questions to me via twitter (I’m @stephsheaffer).
