If you’re like me, the men in your life are the most difficult to shop for. Seriously though, is it just me or are men ridiculously finicky??!! This year I have decided to build on my Gifting Guide series and share my Top 10 ideas, a mix of classic + trending, on what to give the Him(s) in your life.
1. The Motley All-Stars Kit
Note: This is such a great gift for any man that even cares the littlest bit about his appearance…so basically, any man! 😉 It comes with a selection of some of the bestsellers from The Motley, including a chapped skin remedy, chapped lip remedy, face shave formula, skin renewing face scrub, texturizing hair putty + a pocket comb, all tucked away in a matte blue gift box. The Motley has tons of great, superior products so a box like this is a great introduction to their line.
2. The Homemade Gin Kit
Note: We have all seen the brew your own beer home kits, so here’s a different take on DIY for the gin drinker in your life. The kit contains everything you would need to transform a bottle of vodka into an unique home blended gin. This certainly takes crafting up a level, right?!
3. An acre of land on the moon
Cost: 29.95$ (*starting at)
Note: Right after we were married, my husband had a star named for me, and I was above and beyond smitten! I came across this lunar land site on several other sites, and mentioned in a few of my favorite magazines, and thought it would be a great reciprocation to the star, but more up the alley of my man. There are several different packages you can purchase, but the most basic one will get you 1-acre of lunar land, a lunar deed (with map and Bill of Rights, and Registration with Lunar Embassy.
4. Michael Kors Bradshaw Black Watch
Note: A watch, in and of itself, is such a classic, timeless gift. Since this particular one pictures is my husband’s style, I found myself gravitating towards it. It features brush-blacked stainless steel and can easily be dressed up or down.
5. Amazon Fire Tablet
Available: Best Buy
Note: This 7″ tablet is a great tech gift for even the most low-tech of guy. It’s suitable for playing games, watching movies, surfing the web, reading, and storing photos and music.
6. American Eagle Outfitter’s Reversible Belt
Cost: 29.50$ (currently ON SALE 22.12$)
Available: American Eagle, http://www.ae.com
Note: This one is pretty straightforward! Who couldn’t use another belt?? I like this one from American Eagle because it’s casual and reversible black/brown.
7. Starbucks Black Stainless Steel Tumbler
Available: Starbucks, http://www.starbucks.com
Note: I always, always, include Starbucks tumblers/travelers/mugs in my gift guides. I mean, 9 out of 10 people surely appreciate coffee! I am loving this tumbler in particular for the matte black finish. Plus, it’s double-walked so it’ll keep his morning coffee nice + hot! Don’t forget to partner this one with a Starbucks gift card as a little added bonus!!
8. The Bacon Crate
Note: If you’ve yet to hear of mancrates, let me just say they are totally rad when you need a great man gift! This one here is for the bacon lover in your life. It includes two flavors of bacon jerky, bacon popcorn, bacon salt, bacon peanut brittle and bacon sunflower seeds, all tucked into one of their signature wooden crates. I’m telling you, even if this bacon theme isn’t hitting the mark for you, mancrates has other themed crates to suit your guy!
9. Ted Baker Shoe Shine Kit
Note: Not only am I liking this one for its practicality, but also for that timeless feel it calls to mind. This is definitely geared toward the dapper dude in your life. The kit includes neutral shoe polish, black shoe polish, two shoe brushes, and a soft cleaning cloth, all inside a leather-looking washbag.
10. A+B American Build a Multi-pack of Pepper Sauce
Note: You guys, this one is Oprah approved, and if the guy you’re gifting likes it spicy, I’m sure he will likewise approve. These pepper sauces contain only fresh ingredients, no refined sugars. Pick 3 of these flavors to create your ideal pepper sauce trio: Original Pepper Sauce, More Heat Pepper Sauce, With Garlic Pepper Sauce, Organic Jalapeño Pepper Sauce, or NYC Rooftop Pepper Sauce. Make sure you order by December 15 to have in time for Christmas, and use code OPRAH at checkout to save 20%.
