We’re creeping up on the MOST wonderful time of the year, and I absolutely can’t wait. I have always loved giving gifts–not only does it make the other person happy, but it makes me happy giving someone something they need or want. This year, I’ve decided to do a little gift guide wrap up for you all to make your holiday shopping just a bit easier. I’ve always been a huge fan of online shopping (especially if you’re shopping for multiple people) rather than risking your life in the lines at Macy’s, so let’s start shopping! To make it super easy for you all, I’ve linked all of these products right here so they’re just a click away!
Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links, which means that if you choose to take my suggestions and make a purchase, I will make a little money so I can keep up these super cool blog posts. This in no way affects my editorial decisions, which are always genuine recommendations and only products or brands I would, or have, purchased myself.
I’ve always had a hard time shopping for the men in my life, but after doing years of research (plus some trial and error), I’m finally confident enough to give you all some suggestions (that aren’t the basic whiskey stones or wallets)! So, whether you’re shopping for dads, brothers, boyfriends, uncles, teachers or cousins, here are some gift ideas that will make shopping for your dudes easy-peasy.
1. HSTN Celeste Sunglasses (Oakley,
I really love these circular lenses with geometrical frames. They’re the perfect combination of classic and unique, especially in this adorable turquoise color!
2. Men’s Holiday Dress Calf Sock 4-Pack (Bombas, $65)
Bombas is the absolute best sock company because they donate a pair of socks to homeless shelters for each pair purchased! They are SO comfortable, and the patterns of these dress socks are too cute. Plus, it comes with a gift box!
3. Barbour Polarfreeze Rosen Gilet (Orvis, $230)
So, apparently vests are called gilets now? Anyway, this Barbour Rosen Gilet in olive is perfection. The shoulder patches are so adorable and it even has Polarfreeze technology for the outdoorsy dude in your life! I got a Barbour vest for my brother last year, and he loves it because it can be dressed up or dressed down.
4. Fitpulse Muscle Massage Gun (WalMart,
Perfect for the athlete or workout fanatic in your life! This thing comes with 10 massage heads, and is a great option, especially now that it is on sale. 4.9 out of 5 stars says it all.
5. Modern JP Hat Organizer for Baseball Caps (Amazon, $33)
If one of the guys in your life still keeps their hats hanging on tacks on the wall or stuffed on a shelf in their closet, they’ll love these storage boxes that will keep their beloved hats organized, clean, and in good shape. (Plus, I can say from personal experience that these organizers make any closet look beautiful and organized!)
6. Kiehl’s Men’s Grooming On-The-Go 3-Piece Set (Saks Fifth Avenue, $40)
Kiehl’s has always made kick-ass grooming products for men, and this gift set is perfect for the man in your life that needs a little boost in their grooming routine without too many complicated steps.
7. Sunday Flannel Perfect Long-Sleeve Shirt (Madewell, $85 | 30% off with code OHJOY)
This long-sleeve is a best-seller from Madewell for a reason. It comes in 8 super-cute colors (2 plaids!), features Madewell’s signature fit, and all the reviews received 5 stars for soft comfort and high quality.
8. RAINS® Rolltop Rucksack (Madewell, $125 | 30% off with code OHJOY)
This one is for the dude in your life that still carries around a 5-year-old beaten up string backpack. For just over $100 it looks SO high quality and sophisticated–the perfect not-too-trendy backpack option.
9. Courant Case for Airpods Pro-Leather (Madewell, $45 | 30% off with code OHJOY)
Perfect for the guy in your life that doesn’t want to appear too mainstream or on-trend but can’t put down his Apple Airpods. I love the brown leather!
10. UGG Neumel Ghillie Chukka Boots (Zappos,
UGG has made a pretty epic comeback lately with a ton of new trendy, practical styles. These boots are a great men’s shoe that can be dressed up or down, and will keep the guy in your life warm and cozy all winter long!
11. Luxury Mini Votive Candle Set (NEST, $44)
NEST candles are some of the highest-quality candles on the market right now (no joke, I can smell them out in the hallway when they’re lit in my apartment). If you have someone in your life whose living space needs a little freshen up, this gift set is perfect. The matte black is a great neutral for any space, and the set comes with enough for a candle for every room!
