I find that I’m a pretty good gift buyer. I take people’s tastes into consideration, get awesome gifts for my nephews, and thoughtful gifts for the women in my life. But, when it comes to my Hubby, I always fall short. He is absolutely the HARDEST person to buy for. Am I alone in this? I feel like men don’t tell us what they want, and I’m the opposite. I’m always giving my Hubbs gift hints. So, I compiled a list of great gifts for men, whether your Spouse, Boyfriend, Uncle, Cousin, Grandpa, whatever. I hope it makes your gift buying a little simpler this year.

1.) I’ve talked about this company before, but I think they’re doing awesome things by taking bottles headed to the garbage and recycling them into all kinds of awesome things. Bottles and Wood takes all sorts of glasses and makes them into  drinking glasses. You can choose from a bunch of different bottles, some beer, wine, or even IBC root beer bottles. They package them in these awesome wooden cases, and they look super nice- no reason to even have to wrap them up. Just stick a bow on them and you’re good to go. They sent me a set for my Hubbs made from a local IPA and the quality is great. A gift that’ll be a great conversation piece and is perfect for your man. Check out all of their Woodenware as well- great quality and good for the environment.

2.) If you’re looking for a sentimental gift for your man, and he also happens to be handy around the house, check out Marked Moments Keepsakes. They sent me a hammer for my man engraved with “Building a Life Together Since 2007”, which is the year we were married. I love being able to customize anything, it makes the gift that much more personal. Hammers aren’t the only thing they do, you can also get customized Knives and Keychains, Business Card Holders, and more. So for personalized gifts for all the men in your life, check them out!

3.) Have a man who’s always on his laptop/tablet. Working the grind or surfing the web? Then he definitely needs one of these lap desks from iSkelter. You can get them sized for big laptops, and even add extra work room. I love that it also has holes so that your computer doesn’t get too hot. They’re handmade in America by a small team, so you’re supporting a small business as well. They also make Apple Accessories and Workspaces among other things. (Including these Beauty Stations that I think *I* need). For techy men {and women} everywhere, you’re welcome.

4.) Know a guy who loves spending time in the kitchen? Perfecting his steak or rib recipe? Grab him up this Rub Set from Williams-Sonoma. My hubby loves trying new recipes on the grill, and spends most of his cooking time outside. If you have a fella in your life that does the same, grab him up a set like this. You can find them just about everywhere, and they’re a great gift for any foodie.

5.) Every year I get my Hubby a silly Graphic Tee. He’s a video-game geek, so it’s usually game-related. This year  think I’ll get him this one, because it’s equally geeky and hilarious. This particular one’s from Knock Out Tees– but there are graphic tees everywhere, so find one that suits your man’s interests, and go with it. Like I’ve said before, you can’t go wrong with a comfy tee!

6.) My Guy can never find his belt, and when he finally does, it usually doesn’t fit. He’s super skinny and I’ve seen him actually cutting extra holes in his belt so it will fit. Mission Belt has solved that problem. It’s a no-holes, adjustable belt, made of high quality leather that won’t crack. They come in an array of colors with a lot of different buckles to choose from. So, you can find one that fits your guy’s tastes. And even better- “a dollar from every belt goes to fight hunger and poverty worldwide through micro-lending. There are millions of industrious, motivated people striving and fighting for a better life and sometimes the only thing holding them back is a little capital to get started.” I love a company that makes a difference, so you’re getting a gift and giving one as well.

7.) My Hubby has super sensitive skin like me- we make quite the pair. And if your man is anything like mine, getting him to start a skincare routine is like pulling teeth. Most men just want to wash their face in the shower and be done. And asking them to use a moisturizer- oh my! But, finally my Hubbs gave in when I showed him this: The  Real Shaving Company line- because it’s safe for sensitive skin. Once he used it once he was hooked! The Scrub made his skin smoother than it has ever been, and helped his pores look noticeably smaller. He loved the lather from the Sensitive Shave Cream, and it didn’t irritate his skin at all. And the Sensitive Moisturizer left his skin so soft, and it smells amazing. Like I can’t stop smelling his face- and every man wants his lady to want to sit a little closer, if ya know what I mean. Right now they’re based in the UK, but you can still order from their website. They’re working on a U.S. website right now. You can usually find them locally at T.J. Maxx or on Amazon. If you want to ease your man into a skincare routine, or he’s hard to buy for, this is the perfect gift.

8.) Don’t forget a stocking stuffer. This is one that I put in my Hubby’s stocking every year, because a lot of his job is spent outside and it can get cold, cold, cold here in the winter. If your man spends a lot of time in the winter outside doing anything- gift him some Hot Hands and keep his hands and feet from freezing. And since we love our men, and don’t want them to freeze, they make great little extra gifts.


I hope this list gave you some ideas for the men that you love…what else are you getting your guys for the Holidays?
