Holiday Gift Ideas for Him


A beanie might be one of those things that he might not be so great at replacing when it’s time because he really loves the one he has. He’ll love this knit beanie because it’s incredibly soft and won’t irritate his scalp.

Massage Gun

This massage gun will make his recovery from gym days easier. Even if he’s not a gym guy it will help relive pain and soreness.

Dart Board & Wall Protector

This is a gift to anyone who cares about their walls. If he already has a dartboard, but hasn’t used it because he doesn’t want to risk ruining his drywall with errant throws, a dartboard wall protector is the perfect gift. We got a dartboard as a housewarming gift and I couldn’t order this fast enough. The Mister™is pretty good at darts. His guests might not be.

Bomber Jacket

My guy loves a good bomber jacket. In his words, “It just looks cool.” What guys doesn’t want to look cool? This one is vegan suede and might be on the pricier side of gifts, but it will last for years and years.

Leather Weekender Bag

For quick weekend trips a medium suitcase feels like overkill, but a rolling carry on alone might not be enough to fit everything he needs. A leather weekender bag will give him the extra packing space he needs to have all of his essentials without added bulk.

Cologne Discovery Set

If you know him well enough to know what he wants to smell like go for that (it seems like EVERY man loves Dior Sauvage), but if you don’t a discovery set will get the ball rolling.

Chess Set

If the guy in your life likes strategy and war games it’s safe to say he likes chess. Upgrade his current plastic or set to a nicer chess set made of resin, walnut, and brass set that can be customized.

Wallet or Cardholder

Because every place doesn’t accept Apple Pay, he still needs to carry a wallet with his most used cards in it. He’ll love this one because it’s not bulky, but can easily carry his necessities. It also has RFID protection, room for cash, and comes in seven color options.

Travel Tool Set

If your guy is handy in any way, people are going to ask for his help tinkering with and fixing things. So he’ll always have a basic set of tools on hand, a travel tool set will help him always be prepared to help others without having his entire tool collection in his truck.

Espresso Machine

Transform his coffee game by introducing him to the joy of Nespresso. This gift is a bit of a commitment so you might want to make sure he like rich, robust coffee before getting this. If he like’s good coffee he’ll love this easy espresso maker. No coffee grinder or measuring cups necessary.
