Aah yes. It’s getting close to the holiday season, and you have zero ideas of what to get for your manly man this year. It’s a very, very common situation.
If you’ve been hanging out with us for any amount of time, you probably noticed that gift posts are kind of our thing here at L&L. We love to shop, especially if there’s a good challenge involved. Case in point, trying to find awesome gifts for guys who seem to have just about everything.
So, without further ado, here is our gift guide:
Guy Giftstravaganza – Gifts Under $25
We’re gonna go ahead and break down some price points here to make your life easier. Ready? Here we go.
1. Concert Poster
Who doesn’t love a good art nouveau style poster? Perfect for his man cave, or wherever you want to display it for the ultimate compliment reception.
2. Custom Leather Journal
In this age of Alexa lists, online journals, and Google calendars, everyone should keep a journal and write stuff in it. You know, pen on paper and all that jazz.
This luxe leather journal is personalizable with his name or initials and comes in three sizes with lined or blank pages so he can use it however he pleases. So masculine, so darn useful.
3. Beard Oil
If the man in your life is like most, he’s either sporting a beard or is thinking of growing one. If he loves his face locks, he’s going to adore this beard oil. Nourishing ingredients like argan oil, vitamin E, jojoba oil, avocado oil, and scented essential oils keep his whiskers kempt, moisturized, and smelling delightful. And that’s a win for you too!
4. Professional Stainless Steel Travel and Grooming Kit
Looking your best goes beyond washing your hair and brushing your teeth, amirite?
Well, the man in your life is no exception to that rule! This grooming kit has everything he needs to keep his hands, feet, and face on point and handsome.
5. Manly Indulgence Dark Forest Candle
So, Manly Indulgence offers plenty of masculine candle scents, but we chose this one because we think it’s ridiculously sexy without coming on too strong. Sounds perfect, no?
6. Ultimate Golf Umbrella
Yes! An umbrella doesn’t sound so fancy on the surface, but when you gift one of these super-quality oversized numbers, it will seriously elevate his appreciation for umbrellas.
7. Outdoor Popcorn Popper
If snacking over a campfire is one of his favorite pastimes, this is just the thing! S’mores, weenies, and now popcorn. Allll the food groups.
8. Smartwool Hiking Socks
Anyone who says socks aren’t a great gift has never received a pair of these Smartwool ones before. They’re nice and toasty without being too thick, really breathable, and super comfortable.
Also, everyone knows socks are a great stocking stuffer. Think about that for a sec. Kind of ironic, isn’t it?
9. Firestarter Kit
This is such a practical gift, we kind of think it should be on everyone’s list. He can keep it in his glove box for emergencies, or you can get him two – one for the car and one for the house.
At any rate, he’ll definitely want to test it out right away! Probably on lots of stuff. This is yet another gift where we recommend you keep the fire extinguisher nearby after he opens it. Safety first.
10. Tactical Knife
by Grand Way
A folding pocket knife is always useful. If you’ve never carried one around, try it for a couple of days, and we guarantee you’ll see what we’re talking about.
This one is stainless steel with a spring-assisted blade, so it’s easy (and safer) to open and close, and it’ll last him forever!
11. Mini Arcade Classics
by Basic Fun
Goodness, these are cute! Take him back to ‘82 with one of these tiny retro handheld games. It’ll definitely put a smile on his face.
12. Back-in-the-Day Tapes Travel Mug
Alright, so he’s a little young for the eighties? How about taking him back to ‘92?!
This practical–yet-unique travel mug with cassette inserts from the likes of Wu-Tang Clan, Ice-T, and De La Soul will make him want to dig out his old tapes. Good luck finding a cassette player anywhere.
13. Steve Jobs Biography
You may not have heard of him, but apparently this Steve Jobs guy is pretty interesting and knows how to make a buck or two. If you’re man has an entrepreneurial spirit, this biography of the man who built Apple could be an inspiring read!
If he’s not a Steve Jobs fan, it’s all good. There are so many options available in the Amazon bookstore that there’s bound (ha, get it?! books! bound?!) to be something there to pique his interest.
14. Leather Catchall Valet Tray
Personalize this beautiful tray with his initials or a special message from you, and he’ll feel good every time he empties his pockets after a long day’s work. The perfect gift for the man who likes the everyday finer things in life.
Manly Gifts Under $50
15. Love and Victory Resist & Persist Glass Set
by West Elm
These glasses are so unique; we love the tattoo-inspired typography! Perfect for raising a toast.
16. Monogram Steak Branding Iron
Nothing says MANLY like a branding iron!
He can sear his initials into all kinds of stuff with this one – wood, leather, meat, whatever he wants to claim forever. Find a good hiding spot and keep a fire extinguisher with you when he fires it up though. You know, for personal safety.
17. Beer Soaps Set
He’ll want to kick the Old Spice body wash to the curb when he tries these handmade soaps. They smell amazing, and they vary from exfoliating soaps to gentle, skin-nourishing blends, all made of different styles of beer!
18. Global Hot Sauce Gift Box
Oh hot sauce, how we love you. What’s better than hot sauce? Hot sauce from ALL OVER THE WORLD, of course!
If your guy is into spicy condiments, he’s going to love this gift box. If he isn’t, well, that’s his problem. Just kidding, spice-avoiders are people too.
19. Peugeot Whiskey Tasting Set
You may have noticed we like to include whiskey gifts in our lists. The reason for this is simple: more than a couple of us here at L&L love us some whiskey. So really we’re just shopping for ourselves, truth be told.
This beautiful whiskey set features a metal cooling base to keep your drink cold without watering it down with ice. Because that’s a waste of good whiskey.
20. Himalayan Salt BBQ Plank
This is such an original gift, it just had to make our list!
Who knew you could cook on thick blocks of Himalayan salt?!? It’s easy to care for, enhances the flavors of your food, and you can chill it to serve cold dishes.
21. BBQ Tools to Go
These barbeque tools look so sleek and modern; we loved them even before we discovered the cool carrying bag they come with. BBQing elsewhere? This set is perfect for the nomadic grillmaster!
22. IPA Brewing Kit
If there’s anything good that has come from this COVID-19 mess, it’s that people are baking bread and brewing beer at home!
Give your beer lover this IPA kit and watch him transform into a master brewer. Be sure to stick around, he’s gonna need a taster!
23. Casino Poker Set
There’s nothing like pizza, beer, and poker night! Give him the gift of quality time with his loved ones as you all gather around for a lively game of poker. Then sit by helplessly as he hustles everyone at the table.
by Hydro Flask
You know it, you love it, you probably use the heck out of it. So, why not get your dude a Hydroflask so that he too can enjoy super cool water all day long!
25. Dual Lock Camping Chair
Simple yet sturdy, he’s gonna love his new camping chair. It’ll stand up to the heaviest of dudes and features two cup holders and plenty of zipper pouches for storing his stuff. Oh, and the mesh back is a life-saver on a hot and sweaty day!
26. Personalized Leather Toiletry Bag
This leather toiletry bag looks so expensive. He’ll probably assume you spent a bunch of money on it, especially if you get it monogrammed with his initials. Oh and comes in 3 handsome colors for your handsome guy.
27. Roll-Up Bar Tool Set
by West Elm
This nine piece set has everything he could need to play bartender at your next cocktail party. The best part is, it all rolls up inside a neat canvas bag to store away or take on the go.
28. Italian Herb Mini-Rub Set
Rubs for fish, poultry, beef, lamb, or whatever he wants to throw on the grill or in the broiler. Four very different blends ensure that no matter what he chooses to make for dinner, it’ll be great.
29. Acorn Moc Slippers
Toasty toes are essential for keeping your dude (or anyone, for that matter) in a good mood. With a snuggly, soft upper and cushioned sole, he’ll be happy to go outside and grab the firewood so you don’t have to.
30. Seasoned Cast Iron Skillet
Anyone who spends a lot of time cooking knows a good, seasoned cast iron skillet is an indispensable part of a well-stocked kitchen. We like the long handle and short handle combo – so useful!
31. Personalized Leather Wallet
A leather monogrammed wallet is such a classic gift, you really can’t go wrong. Even if he already has a wallet, we guarantee he’ll ditch it for this one. It can be laser engraved with his initials, name, or even a quote in a variety of different fonts.
32. Coleman Rolling Cooler
This huge-capacity cooler will keep his ice frozen up to five days – that’s a lot of time to drink those 84 cans it can hold. He may need some help from you and the gang though. Pack it up, hop in the car, and have yourself a camping weekend!
33. Ceramic Mug Shave Set
We’ve noticed that when a man uses a proper shave set, he stands a little straighter for the rest of the day. This one features a ceramic mug, luxe brush, and soap that feels as amazing as it smells to remind him who is in charge. (Ok, true, it’s you that’s in charge, but he can dream otherwise!)
Manly Gifts Under $100
34. Soundwave Art Wall Canvas
by Canvas Vows
This is a great idea! Pick your size, provide the song and any lyrics you want written on the canvas, and you’ve got an amazingly meaningful gift for him.
35. Maglite Flashlight
A sturdy, heavy flashlight is a must-have in every house and/or glovebox!
Maglite is one of the biggest names in flashlights, so you can be sure he’s getting a quality product. It has a bunch of helpful features and has a runtime of 16 hours at its highest setting.
36. Wireless Charging Station with Built-in UV Sanitizer
The perfect gift for right now (or any time he wants to stay cootie-free), this phone charger does double duty as a sanitizer. You have heard that our phones are the dirtiest things we touch, right?
37. Garmin GPS Running Watch
There are plenty of smartwatches out there, if your favorite guy is a runner, this is tailored specifically to his needs. It tracks how far, how fast, and the path he’s taken on his run. It also measures heart rate, intensity, calories – all that good stuff.
38. Prada Luna Rossa Cologne
Scented with citrus and bergamot, this is a singularly masculine fragrance. He’ll smell downright irresistible.
39. Outdoor Beer Table
Have you ever gone on a picnic and set your beer on the ground so you can get in that hacky-sack game only to watch helplessly as it tips over because the grass isn’t cooperative? Yep, that’s why he needs this. Heck, that’s why we all need this.
40. Schmidt Bros. Steak Knives
Simple, high-quality, and ultra-useful, these steak knives will be a hit for sure. The gorgeous decorative box they come in makes them extraspecial.
41. Bose Soundlink Micro Bluetooth Speaker
We were blown away by how tiny this speaker is. We were even more blown away with how much sound it cranks out. It’s waterproof, rugged, and practically dent-proof. What more could you ask for?
42. Peugeot Electric Wine Opener
No more struggling with stubborn corks. This electric wine opener makes getting that bottle open effortless. We were skeptical of the electric wine bottle opener, until we tried one out ourselves. So. Much. Easier.
43. Cotton Fleece Robe
Mmmmm, luxurious and fluffy cotton right out of the shower. Everyone needs a good bathrobe. Monogram it with his initials, and he’ll feel like every day is an exercise in relaxation.
44. Victrola Bluetooth Record Player
LPs are making a comeback, so picking up a sleek and stylish player for all those records he’s had in storage is an awesome gift.
45. Noise Cancelling Headphones
A good pair of noise-canceling headphones comes in handy in all kinds of places: on a run, trying to focus at work, watching a good movie, listening to tunes, trying to tune everyone else out. The list goes on and on.
46. KastKing Perigee Fishing Rods
If the man in your life is a fisherman or is thinking about taking it up as a hobby, these rods are excellent quality for the money. They’re lightweight yet sturdy enough to last a whole day on the lake.
47. Snaptain Drone With Live Camera and Intelligent Voice Controls
Encourage his inner kid to come out and play with a cool drone! The drones available these days can do so much more than those from a couple of years ago, and we were blown away by the features this one has for the price.
48. Metal Cash Strap
Holds up to 12 credit cards, yet stays nice and flat. A regular wallet can’t do that and keep your cash strapped securely in. It features an RFID shield to keep people from snooping around his credit card numbers.
49. Longboard Skateboard
Another fun gift to appeal to his inner kid! Gliding around the park on his longboard will bring back those carefree feelings of his youth. You know, before spouses and kids and pets and mortgages and things.
50. Cuisinart Vertical Charcoal Smoker
The vertical shape and design of this smoker maintains a consistent temperature and is a great space saver. Perfect for all that stuff he likes to smoke and fantastic for a Thanksgiving turkey. Just sayin’.
51. Personalized Duffle Bag
This is such a beautiful, quality-made duffel bag, it looks waaaay more expensive than it actually is. Which means you’ll probably get a lot of “Oh wow! You didn’t have to spend that much on me!” kind of nonsense. Just tell him he’s worth it.
Celebrate The Man You Love With Swag
Giving a great, well-thought-out gift can be one of the most rewarding things about the holidays or any special occasion. Especially if it’s for someone who takes great care of you, and is always there to open a jar or reach a high shelf.
Here’s to the man in your life, whether it’s your boyfriend, husband, brother, dad, or friend. May all his gifts be awesome!
