Gift Guide: For the Guys

shaving kit // Bose headphones (really nice quality!)

You know what I've figured out about men? If you put a little bit of thought into their gift, they will love it no matter what. Seriously! Men are so easy to please (unlike us women!) so gift shopping for them is a lot easier than you may think. I've rounded up my top picks above of all the "classic" items that every man would love, whether it's your boyfriend, husband, dad or brother. If they're a tech guy, they will love nice speakers or nice headphones. If your guy is a beer lover, he may love the personalized craft beer holder. I think Johnnie Walker Blue Label whiskey is a great gift because you can get the bottle engraved! The whiskey plus some nice glasses makes an awesome present (that no guy would spend money on for themselves). He is sure to be impressed ;)

- Tickets to his favorite sporting team game
- A 6-pack of his favorite beer
- A portable phone charger he can keep in his car
- iPad/tablet or Kindle
- A "movie kit" with DVDs of his favorite movies, favorite candy and movie theater gift card
- Boxers or nice socks (socks he can wear to work and also athletic socks)
- Video game console
- A nice winter coat
- Leather duffle bag
- A tool kit for around the house

What are you ideas for the men in your life? I'd love to hear!



  1. These are awesome ideas! I love the beer caddy! Another great gift for a beer lover is a "brew at home" kit. There are many affordable options that range in size and difficulty depending on your brewer's place and experience! Thanks for sharing! :-)

  2. this is so incredibly helpful. shopping for my dad is the most daunting task each and every year, so this should really help!

  4. Thank you so much. I always forget what kinds of things guys would like. I'll save this list for future Christmases, Valentine's Days and birthdays. Thank you x

  5. Love the boots they were on my list already.

  6. Such a great guide! Thanks for the ideas:)

  7. I especially love the shaving kit from this list! I think guys would actually be harder to shop for since the men I know seem to want less so they won't ask for anything, making it harder on me to guess!

  8. Thanks for these ideas! Buying for guys is always so tough

  9. The personalized craft beer holder is awesome ... what man wouldn't get a kick out of that?!

  10. I love buying my boyfriend shoes! I also made a little basket of products that he likes but refuses to buy himself like Aveda sculpting gel, Kiehls shaving products, and Redken Shampoo for men!

  11. This is such a great gift guide! Guys can be so hard to shop for.


  12. it is so hard to buy for my boyfriend! He already frequents art of shaving and has those adorable bean boots. The gloves are a great idea though because he can text with them!

    Thanks for sharing :)


  13. A yeti cooler is another great gift and they have collegiate ones that are perfect for tailgaiting.
