You might love the gift of clothing, but for him these items fall completely in the category of “need” and not in the category of “want.” For his birthday or a holiday, you should stick with items that your husband wants and that will make him happy. Especially if he isn’t happy with his job, the last thing he wants on a special day is to be reminded of work.
Whether he's new to growing a beard or has proudly nurtured his beard for years, your man will appreciate having all the necessary tools to keep his facial hair soft and trimmed. The Ultimate Beard Care Kit includes a boar hair brush, dual-sided comb, unscented beard oil, citrus-scented beard balm, and scissors to keep things trimmed and neat. The best part: kissing him will feel nicer than ever.
Tired of him hauling a ratty old duffel bag whenever you head out of town for a night or two? This limited-edition leather bag features a garment compartment that holds two suits plus two shoe compartments, so it's perfect for an out-of-town wedding or a work trip. There are also tons of pockets—both inside and out—which make it easy for your man to stash (and find) his toiletries, tablet, and more. (Looking for something a little easier on the wallet? The Herschel Novel Duffel features a sleek design, an interior shoe compartment, and costs just $85 at Bloomingdales!)
The remote-controlled shark is nearly 5 feet long and 3 feet tall. Once inflated with helium (not included, but can be found at party supplies stores), the shark hovers in the air. You can move it around using the remote control, and the durable nylon material will keep the shark from popping when it inevitably bumps into walls and people (we're not all expert pilots right off the bat). You get a full 360-degree range of motion, and you can control it from over 40 feet away.
Rings, cufflinks, and watches made with beautifully polished wood are trending in a big way. This showcase of natural elements has a raw appeal that can be appreciated by the outdoorsy as well as the fashion-conscious husband. Find the perfect accessory for him this holiday season, whether it’s a smooth mahogany ring or a timepiece crafted from sandalwood.
We couldn’t love this any more than we do! This ceramic mug is temperature control that he can choose to control remotely and even choose his own LED color! This one was designed to keep your beverages hot (hello coffee or tea!) from about an hour. He can even have different temperatures pre-set so different drinks can stay hot (or warm) at different temperatures. This one also comes in black too. See color options here!
Still stumped? Don't panic. We've rounded up a list of awesome gifts—from incredibly soft boxers and a motorized grill brush to the coolest TV tool and a truly smart smartwatch—that most men would be thrilled to unwrap. Depending on your guy's interests, he's bound to love one (if not a handful) of these. We found something for everyone in just about every price point, so read on and get ready to cross one more person off your shopping list.
I have two favorites here—the watch band and the growler keg. I own the former and it’s perfect for the football fan who doesn’t like to make a loud statement. The latter’s ideal for the craft beer enthusiast who likes watching games at home. Alternate idea for the Bleacher Creature doll, by the way? Get a player from your most hated rival and stick it in your dog’s stocking.
Comfort starts with the first layer! This Canadian-based brand knows exactly what a man is looking for when it comes to underwear—moisture-wicking, loose fit, breathable fabric, and a silky-like hand against the skin. Chances are these will become his favorite pair, so you might as well buy a two-pack. And if for some reason he’s not totally satisfied, the company will refund your purchase.
Every guy needs a pair of aviators, but if you’re going to get him a pair you might as well get him the best. And the best, hands down, is a pair of Ray-Bans. To kick the style up a notch, go for a pair of the iconic brand’s Highstreet Iridescent frames, which come with a metal bridge and gradient UV-protected frames. Choose from honey or black frames to fit your giftee’s style.
Because he’s been trying to do some handy project around the house and, well, he could use a little extra help! This top-selling compact drill is pretty lightweight (around 2.5 pounds), comes with the drill/driver, Lithium Ion batteries, the charger, and the bag. Plus, we love how it even has an LED light built-in so he can see exactly where he’s trying to drill and you don’t have to stand their with the flashlight.
You really can't go wrong with a high-quality indoor/outdoor fleece jacket that can be layered or worn outside and still keep him warm. If you're on a budget, check out local outlet stores--they carry last year versions or discounted wear that still look great. I spent around $100 on a nice fleece jacket for my husband over four years ago that he still wears to this day. Totally worth it.
Working long hours can leave anyone with puffy eyes and dark circles. This dermatologist-recommended eye cream makes a world of difference by reducing puffiness and moisturizing dry under-eye skin. The formula is lightweight, smooth, and pleasantly cool—even men who have never thought about skincare in their life will enjoy using this cream at night, and they'll be even more pleased at the results.
When it comes to shopping for gifts for husbands (or anyone, really), it's a good idea to start by brainstorming a list of things that he may want but wouldn't necessarily think to buy for himself. That might include practical items that he could use every day, if only he realized they existed or found the time to purchase them: What would make his day-to-day life at home, at work, or on-the-go run just a little bit smoother? Depending on your budget, you might also consider pricier items that he wouldn't feel justified shelling out the money for himself, but you think he deserves to own.
This is a must-have and best-seller as far as portable coolers go. It’s pretty light so he can bring it just about anywhere. It can hold up to 16 cans of your favorite beer, soda, or seltzer water (but, who are we kidding, it’ll be 16 beers). This makes it perfect to take out with you to the park, on the boat, or just to that BBQ you’ve been dragged to. This one is 100% leakproof, waterproof, and is resistant to gross mildew.
