Some of you said you like the new gift guide template, but you missed the graphic at the top. The thing about the gift guide templates is, there is no sidebar, so everything is wider… and that makes that graphic HUGE! Maybe I need to make a horizontal one next time.
Holiday Gift Ideas for the Guys
Yes, Christmas is still 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.
These are gift ideas for the men in your life, and I have another one coming with smaller gifts and stocking stuffers, so stay tuned for that!
Also, there are more gifts in the list below than we were able to fit in the graphic, and the numbers do not correspond to the graphic either, so don’t let that throw you off! You can click through on the images below to shop.
An old, worn out looking belt is not a polished look, but some men don't notice that sort of thing. If your guy needs to update his belt, I really like this one for casual wear.
This game is great for anyone-ages 10 to 100. You answer pop culture questions and challenge cards make you hum, dance, and act out iconic moments from the different generations. It's fun for the whole family.
If your guy is a bit of a science nerd and also loves to cook, this set of 12 spice blends and rubs featuring flavors ranging from Korean BBQ to Pink Peppercorn Lemon Thyme is a gift the whole family can enjoy.
I definitely need to get this for Paul this year! He can go from standing still to full body motion with this desk balance board. It provides just the right amount of motion to keep him a bit active while he's working.
Wow, I feel like it's been a while since I posted one of these! I guess that's because I did a separate What I Wore Lately for Nashville. These pictures actually start the week before that trip, but it's still basically two weeks of everyday outfits.
Evidently we're doing Amazon Prime Day again this year, except they're calling it Prime Early Access... don't ask me why. Whatever you call it, you'll save big on everything from fashion and beauty to home and electronics... just in time for holiday shopping!

Thank you Jo-Lynne. Lots of good ideas here. I see you both worked very hard on this list.
You do the best gift guides for the guys! Thanks for posting early. Any recommendations for a nice ski beanie for mature men?
Thank you! We put a lot of work into them. I like Backcountry for that sort of thing. They have a few options: https://shopstyle.it/l/bMT7R
Or Fjällräven does a nice one: https://shopstyle.it/l/bMT7Z
And this AllSaints one is a little more luxe/chic: https://shopstyle.it/l/bMT71
PS That is neat that Caroline is able to come home for a small break before the holidays. Don’t the months go so fast? When you first take your child off to college, you think you won’t see them much, but before you know it the holidays are here, then Spring break, then Summer again. Time flies. What is Caroline majoring in? Does she ever say if she plans to settle near you once graduated or likes the Boston area to remain living? Its always so different once you graduate and all your friends disperse all over the place with their new jobs. Enjoy her.
So true! 🙂 She wants to major in French, but we are waiting to see if they are going to offer that. Right now, that’s her minor. She would love to live abroad, and she also likes Boston, so we’ll see but I have a feeling she won’t end up back at home.
The spike ball set is a great gift for tween boys too. I just ordered one for S for Christmas. Perfect for down the shore!
Yes, I usually put it on that guide too, lol! Good idea to keep one at the shore.
I am not much for “gift guide/idea” posts. One to two is plenty for me. I prefer all your other posts.
I think, too, the dynamic of buying for one’s husband or bf is always awkward because it’s like(?): the things they’d be interested in would; either detract from the time both of you spend together or it would involve buying some uncomfortably stereotypical “guy thing” you couldn’t care less about (and: hope your significant other was a better man than the type acting like a spoiled child over a gift, lol).
Love your gift guides as I’m always looking for ideas but I didn’t get anything from this one. Sorry. Hopefully you’ll have another guide for the guys.
Thank you so much for this and for posting it so early – there are some great ideas here and even if I don’t end up getting any of these exact items you certainly get my thought processes going. I love finding the perfect gifts for the special people in my life and sometimes I need a wee bit of inspiration for something new and different I know they’ll be delighted to receive.
So glad to hear it’s helpful! 🙂
