Gift Guide: for the Men in Your Life

Good morning! I’m back with another gift guide today… this time for the MEN in your life! This is always one of my most requested gift guides, so I wanted to get it up early this year. Whether it’s your dad, brother, boyfriend, husband or uncle, I think men can be pretty hard to shop for. I’ve listed some other fun and more creative ideas (not shown in the image), below, so keep reading for more ideas.

Clemson stadium building block set (more here) // 3-in-1 charging station // Yeti can insulator // monogrammed wireless charging stand // monogramed AirPod case // black beanie // Abercrombie puffer jacket (currently on sale) // Adidas white sneakers // blue light blocking glasses // Champion sweatshirt // no-show socks // LARQ water bottle // bluetooth speaker

Just a few call-outs of Chris’s favorites from the list above:

Chris loves anything by Champion brand – he is constantly wearing Champion hoodies and joggers, so I know that’s always a safe gift option for him. Nordstrom has a big selection, as well as Amazon (and usually Amazon’s prices are better).

He also owns this Clemson stadium building block set and had SO MUCH FUN putting it together (seriously – it was his Friday night “routine” to drink a few beers and work on his Clemson stadium). Just a warning – the pieces are very small – so it does take a long time, but the end result is really cool! Chris keeps it in his home office now so he can appreciate it every day. The brand (Foco) makes a lot of different stadium building sets, seen here.

As far as a winter jacket goes, Chris has this Abercrombie puffer jacket (he’s wearing it in one of the photos at the beginning of this post!) and it’s his absolute favorite jacket. It’s a really high-quality puffer, and the hood can be taken off if you want to wear it without the hood. Chris really liked the one with the tan interior, but it comes in a lot of different colors. He sized up to a large (he’s usually a medium) and it fits him perfectly.

Here are some other creative gift ideas:

More Gift Ideas

A new gaming system // A lot of guys love to game, and would love a new X-Box or gaming console. The new Playstation 5 just came out, and if you’re looking for one, Walmart will have a few coming in stock online for Black Friday on Wednesday, November 25 at 7pm EST so mark your calendars and prepare to shop QUICKLY! Another option is to buy video games for a console that he already owns.

LARQ water bottle // This water bottle is SO NEAT because it’s self-cleaning – it uses UV-C LED light to eliminate up to 99.9999% of bio-contaminants from your water and bottle.

Smart Watch // If an Apple Watch is too expensive, I really love my FitBit Watch and highly recommend it! It does many things that the Apple Watch does, like show your text notifications and track your steps, but the technology is more accurate for heart-rate monitoring.

At-Home Workout Equipment // Since most of us are still working from home, some at-home workout equipment is a great gift idea for Christmas! Consider getting him a weight rack and bench, treadmill, or stationary bike (we love our MYX Fitness bike). Some free weights or a foam roller are both relatively inexpensive and also make a great gift idea.

Steak or Beer of the Month Club // Consider gifting the man in your life a subscription service that brings him a new delivery every month. Some options include a Steak of the Month Club, or a craft beer or wine subscription service like Winc so that he can test different drinks each month. This is a gift that keeps on giving!

Man Cave Accessories // Chris LOVES his “man cave” aka the bonus room in our house, and you can find him there pretty much every weekend. Consider some gifts that would transform a room in your house into a man cave – like a TV or nice surround sound speaker system. You could also get him posters or panoramic pictures of sports games to adorn the walls. And if you want to go the extra mile, an arcade game, pool table or indoor basketball hoops set is an awesome idea.

    Hi Caitlyn,
    Can you please tell me what size Chris is wearing in the joggers? I want to get my husband a pair and think they are similar, but not sure if I should go med. or lg.
    Thank you!

    • Hey Heather, Chris usually wears a medium in most things, but he got a size large in the joggers! I hope that helps!
