Every year I struggle with brainstorming gift ideas for my husband – whenever I ask him what he wants, the answer is usually “Nothing” or “I don’t need anything”. Yet I know if I do exactly that he’d be disappointed. So while I struggle with finding gifts for him for this Christmas, I thought I’d share with you some of the things I (or others) have purchased for him in the past that he actually liked (and I liked too!). And perhaps a few things I may be considering for him this year!
- Lucky Brand Graphic Tee ($39.50)
We are both fans of Lucky Brand’s tees. They’re always super soft and pre-shrunk so you don’t have to worry about them shrinking in the wash. Plus they always have a sale on so you can stock up and get a few fun shirts for a great price!
- Final Touch Mini Beer Boot with Handle ($19.50)
Not much to say about this except I guess there’s some novelty associated with drinking your beer out of a glass boot? I don’t understand it but I know this would go over well.
- New Era Baseball Cap ($50.21 CAD)
I’m married a huge NFL fan so I had to throw one of these in here. This monochromatic one is pretty unique – almost bordering on classy (almost!).
- Jack Black Jet Set Traveller ($33 CAD)
I think the majority of men do nothing to their skin other than shave and wash their face in the shower. This set offers a gentle introduction to men’s skin care and includes a cleanser, shave lather and moisturizer.
- Munch Better Monthly Subscription Box ($84 CAD for a 3 month subscription – ships to Canada only)
I did a lot of research on subscription boxes that would appeal to men and this one came out on top. Because food. And its Canadian. But let’s be honest, come January almost everyone usually on a health kick and is attempting to eat better; having healthy snacks delivered once a month that you can just grab and throw in your briefcase/lunch bag makes it all the easier. Plus isn’t it fun to receive something other than bills in the mail?
- Apple TV – 3rd Generation ($89.00)
We received one of these as a gift a few years ago and love it. This makes it so easy to watch Netflix or anything from iTunes. I believe you can also watch YouTube and live sports in HD as well. A great gift for couch potatoes!
- Legend – Montblanc Cologne ($65 CAD for 1.7 oz)
I purchased this cologne as a gift last year for Christmas and I lurrrrrve it. It smells so good. In my opinion it’s just the perfect men’s fragrance – masculine, woodsy and the slightest bit sweet but not at all overpowering. If you need further convincing (or a laugh!) go read the reviews on Sephora’s website.
- Herschel Supply Co. ‘Chapter’ Travel Kit ($36.01 CAD)
This is the gift for him and you! I don’t like sharing my toiletry bags (not that there’s often any room left anyway!) so why not get him his own? This one is a good size and made of water-resistant canvas.
- Ugg Scruff Slippers ($110 CAD)
There are two types of guys in the world – slipper wearers and non-slipper wearers. If yours is a slipper-wearer, I can’t recommend a pair of Uggs enough. They may be pricey but their quality and comfort can’t be matched. Love the simple, classic style of these too!
- Fossil Money Clip ($43.04 CAD)
I can’t imagine walking around with my wallet in my back pocket (can you say uncomfortable?). My husband has always liked thinner wallets and lately he’s been loving ones with money clips. This one provides enough room for a couple essential cards and the leather is soft and smooth.
- iHome Mini Wireless Speaker ($69.00 CAD)
I love mini speakers – they’re great for at home, at the office, out in the garage, on the deck, etc. This one is wireless too which is even better!
- Gillette Mac3 Sensitive Power Razor ($14.99 CAD)
Not every guy is into electric razors, so I feel this battery-powered option is a step up from a disposable but cheaper than an electric! Plus its made for sensitive skin!
- Beats Solo 2 Headphones ($219.95 CAD)
These are obviously a splurge but if you’re looking to spoil a music lover, you can’t beat (haha!) these! The sound quality is incredible and they fold up easily for travel.
- SKITS Smart Tech Case ($71.95 CAD)
For the organized (or wanna-be organized) traveler! This little case has a bunch of zippered compartments to store chargers, headphones, cords and other tech accessories. When we travel we typically have all of our techy things mixed in with everything else so it’d be nice to have one place for it all!
- Sriracha Popcorn ($4.99 CAD)
For that sriracha/hot sauce obsessed man in your life.
If you left your shopping to the last minute I hope this gift guide generated some ideas for you!
