Hello again, my friends. We’re back with another gift guide, and this time per your request – it’s for all of the men in your life! Much like Monday’s post that was targeted towards the women, this gift guide offers an array of options from tech, to grooming to style and a few things in between. The price point, per your request, ranges from ~$50 up to the $200 mark, so I’m hopeful there’s something for everyone within this guide!
Let’s jump in:
2018 HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE • FOR HIM
Not that this is necessary only for the men (huge espresso fan over here!), but when I was floating through ideas, this instantly held my attention as the perfect gift for ANY man in your life. It’s not necessarily romantic, therefore it could be for your brother, cousin, uncle, dad, etc. You catch my drift :)
Just an extra little something, something to go along with the machine! It’s one less thing for them to have to buy once you gift them their life-changing espresso maker.
The perfect structured, yet still casual carry on. What I love most about this is that it can transform from a duffle to a carry on with wheels, making it the perfect weekend road trip bag OR the perfect suitcase for a trip to the airport.
One of my favorite masculine scents by this addicting candle company. I love how their branding is unisex, too.
An awesome coffee table book that I actually own myself. If you have someone in your life who’s flirting with the idea, has taken the plunge, or just loves reading about business and other people in the world doing really cool things, this book is a must.
I love the color and the partial zip up of this pullover. It’s casual, yet can be dressed up in an instant.
Every man should have a simple, yet good quality wallet (I’ve seen way too many using paper clips or rubber bands.. what’s with that?!) This Rag & Bone leather wallet is perfect.
Another staple that every human should have (I listened the white one in the women’s gift guide on Monday!) These insulated tumblers are completely worth the hype. I’ve had mine for over a year now and I not only drink from it while I’m at home, but it comes with me on the go, too.
Quite honesty, I just loved that this bluetooth speaker was navy blue :) But in my opinion you can never have too many of these lying around in different areas of your house (I have one in my bathroom for when I’m showering or taking a bath, and another in the living area!)
I absolutely LOVE these and want all of you to buy them for a man in your life. I have a sneaky suspicion they’ll thank you for it.
So this is also something that I have, and it’s been a total game changer. The bag is so sleek, has a lifetime guarantee (so if it rips or breaks, they’ll replace it for free), and you can fit an obscene amount of stuff in this duffle.
Have you heard of these? They’ve been around for a long time, but I consider this another staple. You can link it to your keys, put one in your car, your laptop bag, your luggage when you’re traveling, etc. Never again will he be turning to you to ask where he placed his keys…
I love everything about these joggers. Nike nailed it. Enough said.
Flashy watches aren’t for everyone (I have nothing against them!), so I loved coming across this simple, minimalist matte black watch. Whether you’re dressed up or dressed down, it just works.
Everyone needs a good pair of sunglasses, and in my opinion you can’t go wrong with Ray Bans OR aviators. So it’s a win/win. (Something about a man in aviators… is it a Top Gun thing? I just don’t know)
A must read for.. well.. anyone. But it’s a book that your man will no doubt appreciate a well. This author breaks down work/life balance in such an appealing way, and reminds you, him, US that life is meant to be lived and that having boundaries is the best gift we can give ourselves.
Skin care and SELF care isn’t just for the ladies ;) I LOVE that La Mer came out with a men’s line! Pamper your man this year with this sweet little face kit.
Whether it’s for his office or his home, this is a gift every human can appreciate. Once you hear vinyl crackling on the record player, it’s hard to go back to just listening on your phone.. :)
For the whiskey lover and travel enthusiast, I’m such a fan of this decanter. Quite the conversation starter, too.
If your guy is active, this FitBit is a must. I love it for so many visual reasons, but it’ll make staying in shape a breeze for the men in your life.
A simple pair of sneakers never hurt anybody. I love these mainly for the white soles, and picture these as an every day shoe.
When winter strikes there’s really nothing better than a solid pair of warm gloves that still allow you to do the things you need to do (like update your Instagram, text your mom back, etc. ;)
Personally, I firmly believe that every man should own a good cashmere sweater. This one comes in an array of colors, and the price tag can’t be beat.
Another staple! Do you see a theme here? Noise cancelling headphones are such a game changer, especially if the men in your life travel on a regular basis or work from coffee shops, in a cubicle, etc. Once you use a pair of these, you’ll never look at ear buds the same.
Swell does it again. I love the half sized version of this guy, and the wood makes it so perfect for the guys. (although I kind of love it, too..)
