Holiday Gift Guide for the Guys

Okay, friends. It’s go time! I’ve been hard at work behind the scenes, compiling gift ideas for all the special people in our lives, and today I’m sharing my Gift Guide for the Guys.

I’ll be rolling out my holiday gift guides three times a week — on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays — so be sure you’re subscribed to my daily email newsletters so you don’t miss anything!

one // two // three // four // five // six // seven // eight // nine // ten // eleven // twelve // thirteen // fourteen // fifteen // sixteen //seventeen // eighteen // nineteen // twenty // twenty-one // twenty-two // twenty-three // twenty-four // twenty-five // twenty-six // twenty-seven

Yes, the holidays are a couple of months away, but I’m launching my gift guides early this year so we all have plenty of time to shop. Supply chain issues continue to be a thing, so be sure to start your shopping early and allow plenty of time for shipping and delivery.

Holiday Gift Ideas for the Guys

As you may know, I have an assistant named Amy who works with me behind the scenes, and one of her tasks is helping with my holiday gift guides every year. She is my age, she’s married to a guy who works in IT, and she has a son and daughter in college and a younger child still at home. We kind of live parallel lives. Amy and I worked together again this year to come up with this gift guide for the guys, and I hope it’s helpful!

#1.Tile Pro // This was one of the top sellers from my holiday gift guides last year. If you know someone who is constantly misplacing his keys or his phone, he needs the Tile Pro. You can use a smartphone to make the Tile Pro ring when it’s nearby but out of sight, or if you can’t find your phone, just double press the Tile button on your Tile Pro to make your phone ring, even when it’s on silent. The Tile Pro is also compatible with Alexa, so you can even add voice control when combined with an Alexa device.

#2. Freeze Beer Glasses // This set of 2 16 oz. Host Freeze Cooling Pint Glasses keep his beer cold longer, perfect for outdoor gatherings. Plus, the no sweat silicone grips make them easy to hold onto. Freeze for two hours before using.

#3. UGG Slippers // Because men need UGGs too. Both my husband and son love their UGG slippers. They wear them all winter long.

#4.Word Teasers – Dad Jokes // This set of 300 “dad jokes” includes funny, punny, and sometimes groan-worthy prompts for game play –or just reading aloud for a good giggle. This would make a fun stocking stuffer or gift for a White Elephant gift exchange.

#5. Hot Sauce Kit // Another popular item from last year’s gift guides that I thought I would include again. This make your own hot sauce kit includes only 5th generation heirloom peppers and spice blends that are all natural and GMO-free.

#6. Vintage Baseball Park Map Glass // Got a baseball fan in your life? Each of these double old fashioned glasses features an etched overhead rendering of an iconic MLB stadium, and the club’s vintage logo inside its base. And they’re made right here in the USA. I know a certain someone who is getting one of these for Christmas!

#7. Vuori Long-Sleeve Ease Performance Henley // This casual henley long sleeve tee in a moisture-wicking stretch knit is super soft and comfortable, and it even has UPF 30+. Perfect for the casual office or for weekend wear. Comes in navy, charcoal, and light grey.

#8.Dodow – Sleep Aid Device // For the guy who has trouble sleeping, this metronome light system teaches you how to fall asleep naturally, without taking any medicine.

#9. Grill Smoker Gift Set // For the grill master, this kit includes a smoker box with all-natural cherry, hickory, apple chips, hickory-smoked sea salt, and a grilling thermometer. And it’s made in the USA.

#10. Outdoor Popcorn Popper // This would be so fun for camping, or for a backyard bonfire. It makes 3 quarts of popcorn in just 4-5 minutes. The long handle with hardwood grip keeps your hands away from the heat, and the non-stick coating and hinged lid make cleaning super easy — simply wipe down with a paper towel. Plus it folds up nice and compact with a self-storing handle. Pair this popcorn popper with seasoning salts for a fun gift set.

#11. Lexon Wireless Charger & UV Cleaner // How cool is this? You can recharge and sanitize your phone with this sleek and convenient device that uses UV light to eliminate 99.9% of screen germs in 20 minutes. I’m always grossed out by germy cell phones; I’m going to have to get one of these for myself! In fact, I just ordered one while it’s on sale.

#12. Slub Scallop Crew Neck Tee // These are Paul’s new favorite tees. We discovered them during the #NSale, and he now has them in several colors. They’re nice and long, for guys who are tall or long-waisted. They’re 100% cotton and made in the USA, and currently on sale! See also, this Triblend version. It’s 50% polyester/38% cotton/12% rayon, and I just ordered one for Paul to try.

#13. Vuori Ponto Performance Pant // Made of Vuori’s buttery soft DreamKnit fabric, these soft performance sweatpants have a relaxed fit with a tailored leg, and they come in 8 colors. He can wear them to the gym, or around the house on the weekends. They’re also great for travel.

#14. Vuori Strato Button-Down // The softest button-down he’ll ever wear, this shirt is made of anti-odor and moisture-wicking performance stretch knit moss jersey, making it ideal for travel and casual wear. It comes in charcoal and light grey.

#15. RFID Bifold Wallet // This slim, utilitarian bifold wallet has built-in RFID technology to shield his personal information from electronic scanners. It has an interior currency pocket, ID window, and three card slots.

#16. Bombas Ankle Socks // These are the BEST performance socks. They have a cushioned footbed, honeycomb arch support, and a no-blister heel. Plus, for every pair sold, Bombas donates a pair of socks to someone in need. Oh, and they make them for women too!

#17. Washable Merino Crewneck Sweater // A classic washable wool sweater at a great price, every guy needs a few of these. It comes in 7 colors and runs true to size.

#18. On Cloud Running Shoes // I love my On Cloud sneakers, and guys love them too. This is a hybrid running/lifestyle shoe that he can wear on the trail or around town. The knotted elastic laces give him the convenience of a slip-on, and the molded heel and CloudTec sole are supportive and comfortable. They come in a bunch of colors, and be sure to size up half, if ordering.

#19. W&P Porter Ceramic Mug w/ Protective Silicone Sleeve //This chic to-go mug is made of durable ceramic with a matte silicone wrap and a BPA-free press-fit lid, for no metallic aftertaste. It’s microwaveable and dishwasher-safe, and it fits into most cupholders. It comes in tons of gorgeous colors too. (FYI, it is not insulated, so it is not intended to keep drinks warm for long periods of time.)

#20. 68 QT Foosball Patio Cooler // How fun is this? An outdoor cooler with a foosball table top, built-in bottle opener, cap catch tray, and drain spout. It can store up to 60 cans/50 bottles, and it has a convenient bottom shelf for extra storage. The multi-directional rolling wheels (2 wheels with a lock) make it easy to move and stay still when parked. I think we might need one of these…

#21. NHL Game Used Hockey Puck Opener // This was clearly Amy’s pick, lol! This one’s for the ice hockey fans. Pucks retired from their glory days gliding across NHL rinks get another shot as clever bottle openers. The game date and teams names are written on athletic tape, and a unique hologram number verifies game details online. Each puck is officially licensed by the National Hockey League, and they’re hand-assembled in the USA.

#22. Adventure Essentials Survival Kit // For the guy who likes a good outdoor adventure, this military grade aluminum LED flashlight contains an assortment of essential safety supplies — a compass, a wire saw, reflective trail markers, waterproof matches, and water purification tablets. And it’s made in Canada.

#23. Vuori Strato Tee // Can you tell we’re fans of Vuori? This is the best performance tee. It’s made of their softest Strato Tech fabric, with a modern athletic fit, and it has UPF 30+ for extra sun protection. It comes in 9 colors, and it runs true to size.

#24. Mind The Gap // This looks like a fun party game for mixed age groups. The makers of this game said they were tired of not having a trivia game they could play with their 80-year old grandparents and their teenagers… so they made one. Challenge cards make you hum, dance, and act out iconic moments from the different generations, and it supports up to 4 teams of multiple players.

#25. Beard Grooming Set // He can keep his facial hair well-groomed with this 4-piece set that includes a 1.5 oz. Beard Wash, 1.5 oz. Beard Lube Conditioning Shave, 1 oz. Beard Oil, and a travel-friendly Beard Comb.

#26. Survival Beer Opener Credit Card Tool // What a fun stocking stuffer (under $10!) This 11-in-1 military grade multipurpose tactical survival tool fits in his wallet and gives him 24/7 access to a survival knife, bottle opener, flat screwdriver, ruler, various wrenches, saw blade, direction auxiliary indication, and more.

#27. Ember Temperature Control Smart Mug // Well, here’s a gift for the guy who has everything! It’s a bit of a bougie gift, but fun for a guy who takes his coffee seriously. The temperature control mug keeps his drink perfectly hot for up to 1.5 hours on a full charge or all day on the charging coaster. He can even choose the exact temperature he prefers (between 120°F – 145°F) and control it with his smartphone.

And that’s it for the guys! I hope this list is helpful.

  1. Wow! Thank you for putting this out early! I have heard the shipping delays are going to be tough, so, I have definitely started picking up things here and there. I love that you’re so early with this. I have a few things I’m going to purchase. Great suggestions. Thank you.

  2. Thank you for this gift list!! I am ordering many items for my husband for Christmas.

    I also want to say thank you for writing up a paragraph for each item. So many bloggers/influencers post just the photos with links. This holds so much more value. Thank you!

  3. I’m looking for nice knife set with wooden holder that sharpens while in block. I saw one last year on Cyndi Spivey post but she doesn’t remember which one.

  4. Hurried to order the $10 tarte mascara with free shipping to try it. Such a great price for Clean mascara. Now onto look at your gift guide. I soooooo need a man one for sure. I just finished up my grandkids this morning, as Cyndi gave me another great idea. 🙂 I always start shopping in Oct. and sounds like this years its even more important too with all the problems with manufacturers and shipping etc. Thanks so much for all your hard work. Look forward to all the gift guides to come. Have a fun b’day party and friend weekend. Sounds like your date night was great and I’m so happy to hear Paul is doing so well. I’m sure its a load off both of you and perfect timing before the holidays.

  5. This is great! I’m getting the freeze beer glasses for my daughters boyfriend – birthday in a few wks, you saved the day. This is a good list, thank you.

  6. Seriously AMAZING list of gifts for that man in my life who is so hard to buy for. Thank you so much!!

  7. Great guys list. I’ve been looking and trying to figure out what I’m going to order. On the Tile Pro it says discontinued by the manufacturer in the heading. Just concerned to order if the manufacturer discontinued the making. Wonder why? Thanks for so much time and effort to put commentary under each item. It really helps a lot.

    1. Yeah, I noticed that, and I don’t know what it means, lol. I figured since they’re still selling them, they’re fine to purchase, but when they’re gone, they’re gone.

  8. Fun ideas – I just ordered the phone charger/cleaner, they’re now sold out of the navy, still have white on sale, gold & silver for $79 🙂

  9. Thanks for the great list. My sons and sons-in-law are the hardest to find presents for and you had a great suggestion for each one of them. And I’m getting my shopping done early like I like to do. Thanks again. I enjoy your blog and have for many years.

  10. This is a great list that gets me excited to start gift shopping! I never start this early. There are items on here that are perfect for various people I love, not just the hubs. Can’t wait to see the other gift guides. Thank you so much!
