Summary: Learn how to buy bedding for young men in high school or college.
Teen bedding is one of the hardest gifts to buy. Teens want to spend time in their bedrooms, but seem to be indifferent about the state of those rooms. This is a headache for parents, and they are often forced to take the lead on designing the bedrooms for boys and young men. Still, the process doesn’t have to be so challenging. If you follow these simple tips, you’ll help your growing men develop a sense of style and take pride in the state of their living spaces.
Men tend to like neutral colors. Blacks, grays and earth tones are all winners for the most part. Although exceptions do exist, bedding collections with a simple color palette will make you run into fewer obstacles. As cute as themed gifts are, adolescent males probably want to keep things simple. If you do opt for a themed gift, keep it understated, like buying a pillow case with the logo of their favorite sports team.
Young men probably won’t dry clean, even if the instructions clearly tell them to do so. Especially in college, where most people are still getting the hang of budgeting. As a result, some of the more delicate luxury bedding sets might be wasted on a high school male. Try to keep the maintenance as simple as possible, and make sure they can toss it into the washing machine and move along with their day.

Do you own vintage jewellery? While vintage jewellery is meant to be worn and enjoyed, there are a few do’s and don’ts to wearing high-quality pieces from your grandmother’s jewelry box. Here are a few things you should and shouldn’t do while wearing vintage jewellery.
Do wear it on a special occasion. Are you going to a formal event? There’s no better place to flaunt your vintage jewellery than on a special occasion or during a formal event, such as a museum gala, a wedding, or a formal engagement dinner. Vintage jewellery is usually fancy in nature, which means it will be the perfect addition to your outfit.
Don’t wear it while cleaning. While it might seem obvious, many people wear their vintage jewellery on a daily basis and forget to take it off while doing regular chores such as cleaning and washing dishes. To avoid destroying antique rings, store them properly in between formal events and special occasions.
Don’t wear it while travelling. Once again, it might seem like common sense, but many people wear their precious vintage pieces while travelling via plane, train, and even boat. However, losing your vintage ring on a plane or in a city abroad isn’t fun. To avoid losing your precious gems, keep them at home when you go on vacation.
