On the heels of last week’s 65 gift ideas for her, here are my favorite gifts for the men in your life! I’ve found myself gifting the same items to my husband, dad, brothers, father-in-law, etc. over the years so I consider this list the best of the best. Many of these will be on sale come Black Friday and Cyber Monday (if they aren’t already!) so bookmark this post for when you start shopping later this week. My goal is to have our holiday shopping just about finished this time next week but we shall see!
To be honest I hardly remember what my husband looks like without these in all the time. 😉
Will and I just did the 23andMe health and ancestry tests and the results were fascinating! Now I’m dying for the rest of my family to do them so we can compare results.
A cute baseball cap on and off the court.
Exactly the kind of investment piece I love to score during a sitewide sale. 🙌🏼
Will desperately needs a new briefcase — how handsome is this one?
Workout motivation for the year ahead.
Will and my brothers are obsessed with bringing this game to the beach on Nantucket. We even have a photo of them playing the morning of our wedding!
A classic style that looks great on guys of all ages.
My dad, brothers, and husband all wear these — I swear they’re flattering on everyone!
The ultimate cooler for beach days, tailgates, and beyond.
An upgrade for his car keys.
I gave this to Will a couple years ago and it’s held up beautifully.
Comfy, moisture-wicking, and machine-washable.
The best splurge-worthy sweater, ideally in a color you’ll want to steal. 😉
A personalized piece he’ll use for years.
Will just got an Apple watch and is obsessed with using it to track activity and sleep. I like this brown leather band way better than the black rubber!
A good-looking dopp kit that won’t break the bank. I ordered the green for my brother Camden!
A luxe gift any dad or father-in-law will appreciate.
One of our family’s go-to games and a winning pick for secret Santa or yankee swap.
So comfy he’ll want to change on Christmas morning.
How Will drinks coffee on his commute.
A welcome addition to his winter wardrobe.
The shirt Will and my brothers wore on our wedding day!
A handsome timepiece that looks pricier than it is.
A must in any fitness regimen.
A good gift for anyone with a warm weather trip on the horizon.
Will’s preferred weekend kicks.
My new favorite water bottle, perfect for commutes and workouts alike.
A soon-to-be everyday staple.
My dad or either of my brothers would be thrilled with a new bike for Nantucket.
A genius gift for anyone who’s constantly losing their wallet.
An easy layering piece in a fun color combo.
Will installed Nest in our house in Dallas a few years back and has been dying to get them set up in our new house so he would be thrilled to open this on Christmas morning. Apparently the technology has gotten even more impressive since we last had them!
I finally finished Will’s needlepoint belt (I need to photograph the finished product but you can see it in progress here!) and it’s hands down the best gift I’ve ever given him (even if it took me over a year from start to finish, oops!). I would love to make one for my dad at some point! This shop is great at customizing canvases to your exact specifications — they even took a photo of our dog Rory and painted it onto the canvas so it would look exactly like him!
A classic pick if you’re not up for making your own.
A gift any coffee drinker will appreciate.
We use ours daily to get the weather, play music, and listen to audio books.
I ordered the red and blue version for the Fourth of July last year and it was a big hit.
Will’s everyday commuter shoe. You can’t beat this price!
A sweater he’ll hold onto for years.
I’m not one to get excited about a TV, but I’m kind of obsessed with the custom white frame option on this one. Perhaps a worthy splurge when we redo our kitchen/family room next year?
A luxury gift for any guy on the extra nice list this year.
Will and I are almost finished with the sixth Harry Potter audiobook (they are a dream if you haven’t listened yet!) and he would flip for these special edition book sets. Wouldn’t they be amazing in his new office?
Because classics are classics for a reason.
The kind of thing he’s happy to have and wouldn’t buy himself.
Will’s parents gave us a Roomba several Christmases ago and I don’t know how we ever lived without it.
Every guy should own at least one.
A gift that looks equally good on your grandfather and your little brother.
