You may recognize Tanner Tolbert, husband and father of two, from the 11th season of The Bachelorette and season 2 of Bachelor in Paradise — where he met his wife, Jade.
As any busy father and husband knows, finding the perfect gift for everyone on the list can be tough, but Tanner shared his picks for his kids, his wife and maybe a few things he’d like to see under the tree with his name on them. Watch the video above for some real “Family Man” holiday-shopping inspiration, then shop below for your must-haves!
This bright pink car is Tanner’s pick for his little girl. “This is my pick for my daughter Emmy, she’s two-years-old now, but to be honest I’m dreading the day she turns 16, so I got her the Barbie Glam Convertible so she can learn how to drive now.” The well-priced toy car screams retro chic, and seats two dolls – or Barbie and her luggage – a gal needs her getaway gear! And, notes Tanner, “She’ll love it, it will keep her busy for hours, which in turn is a great gift for dad too.
With Frozen 2 newly in theaters for the holidays, parents can’t go wrong with anything related to the film. “If your household is like mine, you’ve seen Frozen a thousand times,” laughs Tanner. He’s certain she’ll love this super detailed play castle that lights up and has a moving balcony. And it’s huge! “When I call this thing a castle I’m not kidding, it’s probably bigger than she is. She could live in it and be the princess herself!” How fun is that?
Sometimes it’s best to keep it simple, with a stunning look she’ll love, and Tanner nailed it with this pick. “I got these for my wife Jade,” says Tanner about these sparkly and retro Gucci shades, “Because she likes to look fabulous all the time, and I’ll tell you what: These will do just the trick.”
“Jade loves shoes. She collects shoes. She has tons of shoes. I think she likes shoes more than she likes me,” says Tanner, “Which is why I got her these Hunter rainboots.” Sound familiar? These classic rainboots will keep feet dry in almost any conditions. “Stylish, yet protective,” explains Tanner – and he’s not wrong. Loved by everyone from Queen Elizabeth to Hillary Duff, these are a perennial favorite she’s sure to enjoy.
If you’re planning a trip to warmer weather, or are lucky enough live year-round in pool weather, this is “a great gift for the whole family,” says Tanner. This super soft, thick float allows for comfortable cooling off in the pool, and as Tanner says, “I’m sure you’re family will love it too.”
“These are not a surprise, because I got them for myself,” Tanner says. “I’ve been eyeing these for a long time. Corded headphones? Those are so 2018.” The latest headphones from Apple connect to your phone or iPad via bluetooth and allow for handsfree calls, easier workouts, and more. “These things look like they might fall out, but they don’t. You can do anything in them and they’re staying in your ears!”
