Happy Tuesday, friends!
It feels kind of funny to have two consecutive posts about gifts (see my Women’s Gift Guide here!), but tis the season! Your poll answers on Instagram a few weeks ago totally inspired me to get ahead of these… and not only am I more organized this year for YOU, but I feel in control of my own shopping lists, too! Yet another reason to be thankful for you ?
As I’ve mentioned, I have a bunch of more specific gift guides coming, but these first ones are meant to cover a lot of general ground. Whether it’s your Dad, Uncle, brother, significant other, or anyone else on your list. Hopefully, this guide helps you out!
Gift Guide for Men
For the guy who needs more accessories
Even if your Dad or brother needs a tie, that gift can feel kind of lame on it’s own. Luckily, The Tie Bar has awesome gift boxes – full of ties, socks, and pocket squares. I also think scarves and gloves are underrated gifts. Would you boyfriend really buy himself a cashmere scarf? Probably not. Would he love it? Ummm YEAH! Same goes for nice sleek leather gloves, especially with touch screen finger tips!
For the business man
Not everyone needs to dress up for work, but for those that do – these Brooks Brothers Non-Iron shirts are the best. Well, according to my Dad and my brother, they’re the best ?
For the active guys
While we were hiking in Arizona last weekend, we kept talking about how we need to get my parents a Camelbak Hydration Pack. If you have someone on your list (male or female!) who loves to be active outdoors, this is a GREAT gift. It’s also great for your music festival loving boyfriend or brother, too!
And since we’re talking about being active, wireless headphones are on SO many mens lists right now. They’re great for the gym, travel, and commuting on public transit if they live in a city!
For the sports lover
I’ll admit, I usually think sports-related gifts are kind of silly. But I found some GREAT options this year! First up, these blueprints of famous baseball stadiums. I don’t know about you, but I’d be happy hanging that anywhere in my apartment.
But if you think they’d like something a little less subtle, you can’t go wrong with a jersey! If they live in Chicago, this is the perfect year to get him a Mitch Trubisky Bears jersey. Maybe throw a yeti cooler in there for tailgating, too!
And one more idea! We got my Dad personalized golf balls for his birthday. Definitely silly, but such a fun extra gift!
For the whiskey lover
Every whiskey lover should have a decanter and nice glasses. But if they already have those things, you can still have a ton of fun with gifts! I love these city map glasses, or these bike map glasses if he’s a cyclist! I also think these baseball chillers are a really fun alternative to the classic whiskey stones. Those + the Wrigley Field blueprint? Killer gift right there.
For the fun guy
So, not every guys would want pizza printed pajama pants… but you might know someone who would LOVE them! ? This guy might also like a new game for game night or nerd out over this Hodor door stop. And if he has a record player, you should probably take him to see Bohemian Rhapsody and then get him Queen’s Greatest Hits on vinyl so you can have a serious dance party. (But really, that movie was SO good!)
I know I include the Patagonia Better Sweater in every gift guide ever… but it’s always there for a reason. Adam wears his quarter zip or full zip versions literally every day. If your guy doesn’t already have one, this gift is a home run. Maybe throw in Adam’s favorite shoes if he needs an update, too!
Adam is also a big fan of Herschel Supply Co. for travel bags. He brings their duffel bag and backpack on pretty much every weekend trip we go on. They are super durable and a great price point. He also never goes anywhere without his leather travel pouch – and you can monogram this one!
