Hey, I’m Josh!
Here at The Kentucky Gent I share my adventures in the men's fashion and lifestyle world. Take a look around and let me know what you think.

Easter has always been one of my favorite holidays. Not because of the actual day, but because of the copious amounts of candy that always accompanied it. My mom always went overboard on the goodies she’d include, and I enjoyed every single minute of it. After all, I’ve always had one serious sweet tooth. Some things never change!
Some things do though. Back in the day I would have hated getting underwear (or anything practical) in an easter basket. But now? Yes, please. So if you’re like me and waiting until the last minute to prepare an Easter basket for the guys in your life. Then you’re in luck! Cause Walmart is the perfect one stop shop for creating a one-of-a-kind manly easter basket.
The key to nailing a bold, manly Easter basket is knowing what your guy has a hankering for. Because after all, the true way to a guy’s heart is through his stomach. For me, that’s a delicate combo of savory and sweet items. No basket is complete without the requisite Easter candy, but including a 26-pack of Slim Jim really takes it to the next level. That way your guy (and you) have something to snack on, no matter your mood.
Now it’s your turn to join in on the fun! Head over to Walmart to build out your perfect Easter basket for the guys in your life, and then share them on social by tagging with #SlimJimBoldBaskets. And to top it off, that’ll enter you to win a $100 gift card. That’s what you call a win, win in my book.

I get it. Guys are hard to shop for. Most things that we want, we already have. We’re often times more picky than girls (even though the majority of us will never admit that.) And as the days before Christmas quickly dwindle down the heat is on.
But worry not. Today, I’m here to help by rounding up the best gifts for him. Things you know that he needs, but would never buy for himself are a great place to start. Not sure what I mean? Think deodorant, hair styling products, or underwear/socks.
The older I get the more I really, really appreciate gifts of this nature as it means I can spend money on things I actually want, not need. Other than that why not start off his New Year’s resolution off on the right foot with some new workout gear, or add a new tech gift to his arsenal. I’ve rounded up some of my favorite below – keep reading, pull up a chair, and start shopping.
If the guys in your life already use Old Spice, then this would is a no-brainer gift. But even if they’re not Old Spice has been an American icon for nearly 80 years and is the authority on the male grooming experience making them the perfect gift for any guy on your list.
They offer a number of hair stylers – including a pomade, putty and paste – at affordable price-points, making for the perfect stocking stuffer. Their Sweat Defense Anti-Perspirant is the Old Spice gold standard delivering the strongest and longest sweat protection. Trust me when I say there’s no better gift this Christmas than all-day dryness.
Tech gifts are always a win, win in my book. If your man is always running late, then now’s the perfect time to remedy that with a new watch from the Casio EDIFICE collection. The EQB600 is a sure-fire win in my book with its Bluetooth Connectivity and Casio’s Tough Solar Power. Another favorite feature is that it allows you to see the time at home, as well as any city you’re traveling in.
Another tech piece that I’ve had my own for month’s now is the Wearable Wellness Tracker from Spire. It’s the only wearable that increases mindfulness and productivity by tracking breathing patterns reflecting our state of mind. It sends in-the-moment notifications making it easier than ever to be mindful throughout the day. With in-app breathing exercises and guided mini-mediations sessions it takes the guess work out of being in the moment.
It’s a truly one-of-a-kind piece of tech as it learns to anticipate stressful events before they are likely to happen and alerts users on how to best prepare and experience more calm in their life. If you’re ready to try it out for yourself Spire is currently offering $10 off any purchase of the wellness tracker. With that offer might as well snag one for yourself as well, right?
We all know that after Christmas comes the New Year’s resolutions, and if your guy is anything like me new workout gear will help get him out the door and into the gym. 2(X)IST Men’s Activewear collection is designed to support you no matter what life throws your way by featuring moisture wicking fabrics and innovative designs.
