Gift Guide: For Men

After in-laws, men seem to be the toughest group to shop for. My husband and I usually choose a joint gift or something simple each holiday season, so that makes things a little easier for us. But we agreed to each choose a few small things for each other this year. I’m not sure why men are so hard to shop for, but finding a thoughtful Christmas gift that isn’t a dopp kit or duffel bag can prove challenging. Maybe it’s that we tend to go for the same basics and feel stuck year-after-year? I’m including some of the “basics” but included some unique gift ideas, too. I even enlisted my husband to help with a few picks for the men in your life. So here’s this year’s gift guide for men. 

Gift Guide For Men

Whether you’re shopping for your best friend, boyfriend, partner, or husband, these are my top picks for men this holiday season. I found what I think are some pretty cool gifts for everyone, and left out anything too specific. So no football gifts or gifts for your favorite golfer. If you’re looking for the perfect present for the men in your life for Christmas morning, this one’s for you. 


This stainless steel watch with an adjustable strap is both a stylish and practical gift. A great gift for the well-dressed man. 


A thoughtful gift for the man who loves to grill. Grilling tools are always a popular gift and would be a great addition to this one. 

Jersey Pullover

A new sweater or pullover is always a great gift. And I love this quilted pullover in a classic olive green. 

Toiletry Bag

Leather goods always make a great gift. And toiletry bags are always a good way to go. Bonus: it can be monogrammed. 

Charging Tray

If you’re looking for a personalized gift that might help him stay a bit more organized, this is it. 

Men’s Pajamas

This isn’t one of the most unique gifts, but there’s nothing cozier than slipping into a great pair of pajamas at the end of the day. They come in a few different colors and are the perfect gift. 

Credit Card Case

A timeless and classic place to store credit cards and cash. 

Martini Book

My husband has (and loves) this book. It makes for a great gift. 


For the man who likes to lounge around the house like a dapper gentleman. I’m a big fan of Petite Plume pajamas for men, women, and kids. 

Coffee Subscription

This coffee subscription is a great gift, and if you want to take it to the next level, consider adding a coffee grinder or coffee maker. 

Bluetooth Speaker

This is the perfect size bluetooth speaker, and since it’s Bose, you know the sound quality is great. 

Smokeless Fire Pit

My husband put all our patio furniture away early this year, so I guess that rules out a fire pit. But I really wanted to get this for him (ok, us) and had visions of sledding and cocoa in our yard, ending sitting around a fire. 

Nintendo Entertainment System

Why not get him a classic video game system? I loved my Nintendo when I was a kid – this would be a hit. 


We have this projector for family movie nights – it’s a great way to make indoor or outdoor movie nights a little more fun. 

Merino Sweater

Alex Mill is one of my favorite brands, and this collared sweater is not your average polo. This cold-weather version of Alex Mill’s best selling shirt is fully fashioned in a special merino-cotton knit.


Upgrade his current joggers. And by buying cotton products from J.Crew, you’re supportingtheir investment in Better Cotton’s mission to help cotton communities survive and thrive while protecting and restoring the environment. 

Field Gloves

These leather gloves are touchscreen compatible! 

Ascot Slippers

A smartly designed versatile slipper is shaped from supple suede and grounded by a durable rubber sole for indoor and outdoor wear.


This puffer is priced really well and North Face products usually last forever. 

Decanter Gift Set

A great gift for the whiskey lover in your life. 

Pizza Oven

One of the best gifts for the pizza lover, he will love this pizza oven. 

Plaid Scarf

A classic plaid scarf always makes a great gift.
