We’ve all been there — you’re shopping for a man who claims he wants nothing (or doesn’t really need/get excited about anything) and you’re completely out of ideas. And honestly, it can be somewhat of a snooze to buy gifts for guys.
Lucky for you, I’ve put together a ton of unique yet useful gift ideas for men to make your life infinitely easier. Bonus: I’ve included a variety of price points on this list so you can stick to a reasonable budget.
From tech gifts to affordable luxury items, these ideas will solve all of your holiday present woes. (Oh, and if you need gift ideas for your impossible-to-shop-for dad? We’ve got you covered there too.)
50+ Great Gifts for Men
Beckham Hotel Collection Pillows
These best-selling pillows are ideal for the hardworking guy who needs a comfy place to unwind each day. They have over 210,000 nearly perfect reviews on Amazon.
Kubb Yard Game
The yard game that will make him the most popular person at backyard barbecues and tailgates.
UGG Men's Tasman Slipper
Guys want slippers too! These are the go-to slippers for men this year. They're so comfy he won't want to take them off.
Lululemon ABC Joggers
The #SilbSquad highly recommends Lululemon joggers for the dudes in your life. I'll let the squad reviews speak for themselves:
"He wouldn’t buy them for himself because of the price but wears them all the time for walks and hikes when it’s chilly."
"My hubby discovered lulu joggers this summer and has been OBSESSED! I think he has as many pairs as I do."
"My husband also loves the Lulu pants! He is more bougie than me though—I own zero and he buys them for himself."
Solo Stove Bonfire 2.0
This was another highly recommended item in my Facebook group. "I got this for my husband for Father’s Day one year—we use it all summer and fall."
Vinyl Turntable Record Player
For a unique and meaningful gift, consider a turntable. Gift your guy a record throughout the year for each holiday or birthday to make it the gift that keeps on giving.
Blackstone Flat Top Gas Grill
This grill has over 9,000 nearly perfect reviews and is under $300!
Meater Plus Thermometer
"I got my brother this meat thermometer last year and he RAVES about it." - #SilbSquad member
ORORO Men's Lightweight Heated Vest
If you live in a cooler climate, this heated vest is perfect to wear while working outside.
Leather Personalized Dopp Kit
"I got my dad this personalized toiletry bag last year, and am planning to get one for my boyfriend who uses a plastic bag at the moment." - #SilbSquad member
If you're really looking to splurge (or go in on a gift with someone), this grill is highly loved. One woman in my Facebook group said, "My husband is OBSESSED, like smoking meats is now his whole personality."
I've been using this massager religiously, and it's been a dream for sore muscles, neck aches, back pain etc.
Plus, at under $200, it's a steal compared to the Theragun, and it looks sleek too. Mark my words: this will be the gift guide best-seller this year.
Men's Pouration" Rain Jacket
Perfect for the adventurous guy, Columbia rain gear was mentioned as a good go-to gift in my Facebook group. Whether he' a golfer or a surfer, this rain jacket will certainly come in handy throughout the year.
The Ridge Metal Aluminum Cash Strap
A high-quality metal card case is ideal for the guy that's hard on things. The wallet can hold up to 12 cards and has RFID shielding to protect personal information.
Ember Temperature Control Smart Mug
I got one of these as a gift and was originally thought “I’ll never use this.”
Then I tried it — and it’s been part of my daily routine ever since. I love keeping it plugged in at my desk so I can enjoy my coffee without worrying about whether it’ll get cold.
Corkcicle Insulated Stainless Steel Coffee Mug
For a slightly more budget-friendly option, I love my Corkcicle insulated mug. Great for when I'm on-the-go or walking my dog in the morning.
Keeps my coffee hot for hours (and works for cold beverages as well.)
Beyond the Rocks: How to Whiskey
If you'd rather gift an experience, consider signing your guy up for a fun class that he can enjoy from the comfort of home. Uncommon Goods has a variety of virtual classes ranging from whiskey tastings to art classes—and they're all super affordable!
Fjallraven Buck Fleece Jacket
The perfect winter fleece jacket exists—and this is it. It's a fleece, a sweater, and a jacket all wrapped into one.

Lindsay's dad is notoriously hard to shop for, and when we saw this book we knew it was absolutely perfect for him. (Hopefully he isn't reading this.)
A thoughtful, nostalgic book for any baseball-loving guy.
Gray Malin La Montagne Top Of Aspen Mountain Print
Gift your guy a Gray Malin print that shows off a destination or activity that they love.
Lululemon Pace Breaker Short 7"
These 2-in-1 shorts are a go-to for all my workouts. They have a built-in boxer brief lining for extra support and comfort.
Why dirty two items of clothing?! I'm 5'10" and the 7" length falls just above my knees. (I wear a medium.)
Hotel Lobby Cabin Candle
If he’s outdoorsy & enjoys the smell of a bonfire, campfire, or a fireplace… the new limited edition cabin candle is the gift he never knew he needed.
I can’t tell you how many times we've heard “my husband hates candles but he loves the ones from HLC.”
Coming late October
$75 Cashmere Sweater
This cashmere sweater from Naadam is so comfortable you'd think it would set you back hundreds of dollars but it's actually only $75. The quality is great too.
Le Labo Beard Oil
Shockingly, this Le Labo beard oil has been one of the best sellers of my men’s gift guides for the past two years, so I couldn’t help but include it again.
It's the kind of small luxury a guy wouldn't necessarily buy for himself, but that he'll absolutely love.
ELEMIS Daily Moisture Boost for Men Lightweight Post-Shave Day Lotion
Lindsay has gotten me into good skincare products, and I'm a big fan of Elemis. This facial lotion is really lightweight and feels great the day after shaving.
NikeCourt Perforated Dri-FIT Baseball Cap
I wear this hat to play tennis several times a week and would highly recommend it to other guys. Breathable, comfortable, easy to wash and reasonably priced.
Windproof Travel Umbrella
It’s surprisingly hard to find a good quality umbrella at a decent price. I bought a bunch of these and have been very impressed. I keep two in my car at all times.
TRUFF Hot Sauce with Ripe Chili Peppers & Black Truffle Oil
A favorite fancy hot sauce in our household. It also comes in a "hotter" version (although this one is pretty hot already.)
Malin + Goetz Eucalyptus Hand + Body Wash
I've traditionally been a Dove Body Wash kinda guy, but Lindsay bought this for me and I liked it so much, I've since repurchased on Amazon twice.
This is a classic "your guy won't realize how much he likes it until he uses it" gift.
Adjustable Cell Phone Stand
I keep this cell phone stand at my desk and it's been a game changer for calls, Facetimes, reading emails, watching videos etc.
Not the priciest gift, but a useful one. A great stocking stuffer option for the guy in your life.
Adjustable Ergonomic Laptop Holder
Lindsay & I got these stands when we noticed we were hunching at our desks and they've made a world of difference.
Another work-from-home must-have for me. This could be a good gift to pair with the cell phone stand above.
These white sneakers are one of my top finds of the past year. They are super lightweight and comfortable (I love wearing with without socks) and clean easily with soap & water or shoe cleaner.
Bonus: They're only $79.
Tumi Alpha 3 Split Travel Kit
This travel kit holds every travel size item he might need on the road in an organized way—which is why I consider it one of my absolute must-have travel essentials for men.
Bose Soundlink Micro Bluetooth Speaker
The most perfect “safe” gift when you have no clue what to buy for a guy, and the perfect price point.
He likely wouldn’t buy something like this for himself, and there’s no way he wouldn’t find a use for it. Great for both outdoors & indoors.
Ankle Socks 4-Pack
These ankle socks from Bombas are the absolute best. They even donate a pair for every pair you buy.

Get all of your or his stuff in order and store them all in one space.
This Leather Accessories Tray from Leatherology is great to have on a nightstand or a desk, and it comes in so many different colors.
Ninja Air Fryer
If you or your man doesn't have an air fryer yet you're doing yourself or him a serious disservice.

These classic blue jeans from Everlane are comfortable, flexible, sustainable, and very high quality for the price.
Mixology Bartender Kit
He'll be the life of your next party with this 10 piece bartender kit.

It's the Bose headphone we've all been waiting for; the in-ear noise cancelling headphone.
Great for working out, flying, or taking work calls when you're trying to drown out any background noise.
Equilibria Relief+ CBD Bundle
Your man needs to chill out!
This kit from Equilibria includes a balm that works miracles for sore muscles, as well as soft gels and a tincture that'll help him to relax.
Bonobos Soft Every Day Long Sleeve Tee
If he's working from home but wants to upgrade from dingy PJs, this extremely soft "everyday long sleeve tee" is the perfect ($45!) gift.
Monogrammed Loungewear Socks
These customized socks from Nice Laundry make the perfect gift or stocking stuffer for every man in your life.
Jason Markk Shoe Cleaner Kit
I swear by this shoe cleaner by Jason Markk. I've been using it for years to keep my kicks clean and its never let me down.
Nespresso Vertuo Plus Coffee and Espresso Machine by De'Longhi
Give the gift of great coffee. I would literally be dead without my Nespresso machine. Don't pay $5-6 a cup at high-end coffee shops when you can have the same quality beans for a fraction of the price...at home.
This is a great luxury gift for the man who has everything, at an affordable price point.
Family Matters Book
If you’ve ever found yourself engaged in divisive political conversations with your dad and you’re looking for a way to see one another’s perspective, this book is the answer.
Brightland Olive Oil Duo
For the guy who loves to cook — or loves to eat. Truly the best, tastiest olive oil he’ll ever try (and the kind of thing he probably wouldn’t splurge on himself.)
They also have a spicy version is great for guys who like a kick.
Garmin Approach GPS Golf Watch
Now you don't have to guess the distance between your ball and the flag. Lower your score and live a happier life!
Adidas 3 Stripe Joggers
These are a favorite among all the men I know, and they're great for all ages.
I own a pair, and so does my brother-in-law, father, and father-in-law. (Need dad gift ideas? We've got you covered.)
Yeti Roadie Cooler
Whether he's a beach guy, a golf guy, a sit-out-on-the-deck-and-BBQ guy... this Yeti cooler will change his life.
It holds up to 18 cans at a time. Amazon seems to have the fastest shipping out of everywhere that sells these.
Bumble & Bumble Sumotech Hair Wax
I made the switch from American Crew Fiber to B&B hair wax not too long ago. The hold is the same but much lighter weight and so much easier to wash out of hair and off of hands.
Leather Passport Cover & Luggage Tag
This monogrammable passport case & luugage tag are great for any world traveler.

Koio Kapri Triple White Leather Sneaker
