CHRISTMAS, GIFT GUIDES, LIFEstyle

Mens Gift Guide

I’m so excited for today’s post! Every year I search for gift guides on blogs or pinterest. They are my favorite to look at so I figured I would try my hand at making them. I’m working on a couple different categories that I’ll post over the next couple weeks!

 

Bag / Backpack / Duffle – 

WEEKENDER // BACKPACK // DUFFLE

I think a new bag works for any guy. There’s always a need for a new bag, gym, traveling, work, school. The first one is a weekender bag from H&M perfect for traveling and only $50! The next two are a brand that I really like, and have great reviews. I find them at Nordstrom, but I’ve seen them at Marshalls and TJ Maxx a time or two. The duffle makes a really good gym bag!

 

Shaving Kit 

$30 TRIAL KIT // $40 HARRY’S KIT // $95 FULL SIZE KIT

I love these, I don’t know why but the art of shaving seems so gentleman-like. If you know a guy that shaves every day, one of these kits could make a mundane task a little more luxurious.

 

Cologne

BATH & BODY NOIR // VERSACE MAN (my fave!) // BLEU DE CHANEL

Something I like to buy for the men in my life because I know they won’t buy it for themselves, but love having it. I’ve bought the bath and body works ones before and they work great, but my all time favorite is the Versace Man. I found it online for only $32! I normally can find it at Nordstrom Rack too!

 

Watch

 

 BROWN FOSSIL // WHITE G SHOCK // BLACK NIXON

This one was Robs idea. He said watches are like earrings, you need different ones for all different occasions and outfits. His excuse to buy more… eyeroll. However, I do think they make a really good gift. I tried to include different styles (for different outfits, right Rob? 😉 He has a g shock that he’s had for a couple years. These are all under $100!

 

Shoes

 

GREY CHUKKA BOOTS // VANS // NIKE ROSHE FLYKNITS // MOCCASIN SLIPPERS // SLIDES 

Another thing I know guys, especially mine, love getting as gifts. For me, shoes are always hard to buy for other people, but these picks have never done me wrong. Everyone loves slippers, and slides and they both wear out really quick. I love the chukka boots, and these grey ones are from the new Target men’s line, only $45! And you can never go wrong with tennis shoes or classic vans.

 

Winter Gear 

SLOUCHY BEANIE // KNIT BEANIE // CAMO SCARF // E-TIP GLOVES // E-TIP KNIT GLOVES

Winter accessories make such good gifts because you know they’ll be put to good use this season. Everyone needs a good pair of e-tip gloves. They also have some at Costco so check there if you’re in the market! I love beanies on girls and guys. The navy blue slouchy one that I linked comes in a couple other colors, and its cashmere. So comfy and only $40! None of the guys I shop for are scarf – wearers, but I loved that one from Target.

 

Headphones 

WIRELESS EARBUDS // WIRELESS HEADPHONES

Definitely the most expensive thing on this gift guide, but even I want these. They make a perfect gift for just about anyone. These bose ones get amazing reviews. I also found these ones from Target, only $60!

 

 Personal Gifts

CIGAR BOX // POKER SET

Personalized gifts are perfect because they are so customizable based on the person you’re shopping for. I got the cigar box for my dad for our wedding, and it was so nice. Such good quality and not very expensive for something monogrammed. I also think a poker set like the one above would be awesome. The “groomsmen gift” section on Etsy has tons of ideas.

 

Car Detailing Kit

This one is $79.99, but they have tons of other ones on their website, even for boats. (and pink sets for the ladies!)

 

Good luck shopping! 🙂

Until next time,
