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!

Apple AirPods, $139

To be honest I hardly remember what my husband looks like without these in all the time. 😉



23andMe DNA test, $99

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.

Etsy custom needlepoint belt canvas, $82

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 luxury gift for any guy on the extra nice list this year.

Juniper Books Harry Potter Ravenclaw collection, $275

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?
