What does one get the gay teen and LGBTQ youth in their life for Christmas? Whether they are your sibling, bestie, child, friend or even stranger, the best presents are the original ones that they can truly use and come from serious thought about who you’re buying for. When I was a young G of Music City’s LGBTQ, I was actually more like the Q, if Q means “questioning” to you. If it means queer, that works too. I just didn’t know it.
I had people tell me that I was gay but I repressed all of that deep inside until I busted through the closet doors at eighteen. Back in the day, the wasn’t Internet yet so there was no researching what to buy someone special. The gifts I got for Christmas were as varied as a generic hairdryer (Thanks, Dad!) or the various gifts mom would get me that I would open under the tree Xmas morning and shamelessly would ask if she had saved the receipts. Plural. I loved returning gifts the day after Christmas for the cash and credit to buy what I really wanted.
Check out these great ideas for the LGBTQ teens in your life! Remember that they are FABULOUS and need to be not only unique but current. And gay dance music ALWAYS WHURQZ!
What do fabulous gay men want for Christmas or a late Hanukah gift for that matter? Here are some great ideas to create fierce moments under the mistletoe this holiday season. I’ve opted not to buy gifts this year since we’re heading to Las Vegas and need our coins for the Slots. Sorry, people. Next year. Go talk to Santa! However, I do know a thing or two about what to get the gay man that has everything. Holidays are so damn joyful. Let’s go shopping! Grab your new iPod filled with the Ultimate Christmas Holiday music before reaching in the fridge for some yummy eggnog to really spice things up!
HAPPY HOLIDAYS and BEST NEW YEAR! xoSM
When it comes to buying holiday presents, what do gay men want for Christmas? Well, any trendy and happening queer must have the hottest things out there! Be it the new Apple iPhone 5 or the fiercest Kindle Fire, a gay man finds himself drawn to these hot items for the holidays. Santa Baby, drop these fabulous presents down the chimney tonight! I’ve been an awful good boy. Grab your quill and ink! Let’s get shopping.
So if you’re not an Apple man (I joke were all together in the cult Steve Jobs created!) then you must love your PC. Have Windows 8 yet? Why not upgrade and discover this 15.6″ of touch screen realness! If I didn’t simply adore my Apple MacBook Pro in such a worshiping way, I’d really dig this. I have an Acer that’s a few years old and can attest that they make great computers.
TOUCH SCREEN REALNESS!
THIS IS ONE FIERCE PC
Wanna be noticed on the slopes? What better way than to find the brightest color to stand out against the white snow? Here’s is one hot hue perfect for any rebel snowboarder or graceful skier! I love this jacket so much! Wish we had more opportunity to wear our ski clothes! Maybe this winter…
THIS COLOR IS HOT
What time is it? It’s time to showcase those stunning watches and keep the dust off the gorgeous pieces. I’ve always wanted one of these. This is a perfect gift for the man who likes nice things in his world! By him one and grab an extra for yourself!
GOT GORGEOUS WATCHES?
SHOW THEM OFF!
Need the fiercest song of the year to carry you into 2013? Ring in Happy New Year’s Eve with this jamming pump and dance floor filler. Ne-Yo is one of the hottest artists around today. I LOVE this damn song. Simple but sick!
L-U-V THIS SONG
Out of ideas? Can’t decide? Let your man decide for himself. As cliche as they can be, gift cards are a welcomed change from the wrong choice and waste of money. I love receiving them and have no problem giving them as great gifts, too. Try it. He may like it!
ALWAYS IN STYLE
LET HIM SHOP!
Smile and the world smiles with you, right?! Well, these toothbrushes are wonderful at what they do. A dear friend gave us a set years ago and we love them still! Simply run the vibration across your teeth and let the brushes do the work. And a dab of peroxide on your bristles afterward can gently remove stains.
EVERYONE NEEDS THIS
Oh, I’m still catching up from the holidays that brought me joyful feelings and good will towards (and from) men, and Santa. Unexpected treasures came my way for both my birthday and Christmas. A juicy gift card here. Some delicious cologne there. And some MMA fighter drag that I’m rocking around the house waiting for a grappling match. Now where is Rich Franklin?! I’ve been waiting for some time now…
A new friend and hunky confidant Roman Troy just dropped a few pieces of his original line Roman Fight Gear off to me at World Gym and wanted me to rock the hell out of it. This is the real F! deal. Professional grade and durable, competition rated, IBJJF approved, MMA fighting wear and body gear equipment. I really look sleek in the Rash Guard sleeved shirt made of a a nice lycra spandex that fits my chest like a piece of armor. It will be great for a day of skiing up at Big Bear when I’m not in the octagon discussing things with Dana White. To see Roman in person (see below) would to also want him across your ass, be it with a slap of his open hand or his embroidered logo over the yellow and black shorts I wore to the gym on Saturday. All eyes on me, please. A walking billboard.
Roman also has X GEAR NYC for darker fetish wear with extremely sexy and scorching photos doused by hot masculine men in compromising encounters taken by famed photographer Inked Kenny. These images are raw and real with the presentation of the true heart of the contact sport given to you in your face without compromise nor excuse. Just pride. Check out his clothing and gear while possibly finding a side to yourself you may want to explore more often.
All this mention makes me want to watch a UFC match; aggressive men drilling knees, bare feet flying in the air and muscular arms wrapped around other shirtless men tight and strong pulling air out of each other. Whew! Is it getting hot in here or is the fireplace I’m sitting next to?! Maybe I should take something off… Oh, Steven. Stop it. You’re being silly. Or am I?! “Let’s get it on!”
Thanks Roman for the use and permission of the amazing images and to Inked Kenny for the visions. They are truly stunning! X

Somebody stop me! I’m a shopping fool. Not only have I found myself in the mall on my last trip to Nashville but again yesterday The Husband and I pressed it to Palm Desert Mall and braved the crowds and strollers. I have found online shopping becoming my fast new best friend. Eww, the shopping mall! OK, anyhow… Need that last minute Christmas gift idea? Wanna buy something for yourself instead? You’ve come to the right place. So get to shopping. We’re in the home stretch to the Day of Santa!
I can’t start my day without my coffee. End of discussion. Well, let;s just say it’s damn hard. I’ve been checking into the Keurig Gourmet Single-Cup Home Brewing System which is ultra popular this holiday season. Just need that one cup?! No muss, little fuss. YUM.
Baby, it’s cold outside. Yes, indeed. The North Face Mens Black Denali Jacket is warm as hell and deflates for a safe tucking away into your luggage or bag. Is snow on the ground?! Will it be soon enough? You need this jacket! I have one. I love it.
So you’ve gotten the new Apple iPhone 4 16GB Smartphone or your iPod is desperate for a place to call home. The Logitech S715i Rechargeable Speaker for iPod and iPhone is fierce. We saw them in the stores but the line was so long we said something explicative and walked out. We found it here on Amazon.
I like a man who smells good. Hey, screw that! I love a man who smells great! I enjoy smelling tasty, myself. Tom Ford by Tom Ford for Men. Eau De Toilette Spray is delicious and anything he does and sells, I’m buying.
He wears the butch shirts and you’ve always wanted to know where he got them. Well, I’m here to help! Xtreme Couture Randy Couture has the hottest t-shirts with bling or without, bright colors or dark and sinister like your wild side. And by the way, I wear a large. Just saying… HO-HO-HO!
