One of the most asked questions during the holiday season is “What should I get for my Father/ Father in Law/ Brother / Boyfriend / Husband/ etc.” Some men can be challenging to shop for. I find the men in my life live very simply and are not interested in most of the latest trends. I like to pay close attention in conversations to see if there is something they mention, or I try to get them something to make their daily life easier. If they are a person who travels a lot there’s so many great items that would help with that. If they have a hobby it’s always great to encourage that. New socks or daily items are always nice too!
Here’s what I have come up with for gift ideas for the men in your life:
1. Yeti Rambler 20oz. $30
I purchased this for my boyfriend before he deployed and he has been using it almost every day since. It’s in great condition, washes well, and really keeps drinks the desired temperature for hours and hours. They are durable and come in many colors. 20oz. is a perfect size too, not too big, not too small.
2. Chuck Taylor® High Top Sneaker $55
Fresh white or black sneakers are always a great gift. Converse is super classic!
3. Patagonia Better Sweater® Performance Slim Fit Zip Jacket $149
Patagonia is such a great brand and provides amazing quality and comfort. This is a piece that will last through countless washes and years. Quality over quantity, always.
4. Sephora Favorites – Cologne Sampler $65
I. LOVE. THIS. IDEA. This is an amazing gift for a guy who wants new cologne. Not only does he get 10 samples of cologne in this gift, once he selects he’s favorite out of the 10 he can go to Sephora and redeem the included scent certificate for a full size fragrance!
5. Dewalt DCK240C2 20v Lithium Drill Driver/ Impact Combo Kit $149
Buy quality tools and you’ll never have to replace them. While I’m not a tool expert, I have heard this is a good drill that lasts. It’s a must have for new home owners, we used our drill for so much!
6. Herschel Novel Duffel Bag $85 (This grey one is on sale right now for $68!)
A duffel bag is so great for quick weekend trips, or even a gym bag. Herschel is a great brand and has so many color options.
7. American Crew Daily Shampoo and Conditioner 15.2 Fl. oz. $23
I can’t say I know from experience that this is a great shampoo and conditioner but I do know several men who do use these products and love them.
8. Concert/Event Tickets $-$$$

9. NES Classic Edition $60
This is a great nostalgic gift that will bring back so many fun memories! It is preloaded with a ton of games as well.
10. Apple Silicone Case $35
Let’s be honest, phone cases get disgusting!!! They really should be cleaned/replaced every 6 months or so. How is his case looking? This is simple case that provides a good grip without get stuck to pockets. It’s very thin and has a faint apple logo on the back. Great quality that will last.
11. Rustic Wall Mounted Wooden Beer Bottle Opener With Cap Catcher $27
Every time I go to a party and they have one of these it makes the experience of “cracking a beer” more enjoyable! It’s a fun thing to add to the wall and this one is rustic! A nice touch to any man cave!

15. Saturdays NYC Ditch Aperitif Logo Hoodie $125

16. Saint Laurent Classic Leather Card Case $275
