I’ve always had the toughest time trying to find gifts for guys. I pride myself in my gift-giving abilities, and I would rather think for several weeks to try and find the perfect gift rather than giving someone something mediocre. Finding a gift for the men in my life has always proven to be a little extra difficult though. I’m a big lover of homemade gifts, but most of the guys I know aren’t nearly as sentimental as I am. So instead of a framed photo of you and your boyfriend or a jar full of date ideas, try one of these gift ideas on the hard-to-buy-for guys in your life.
//SOUNDBOT BLUETOOTH BEANIE
The other day, my boyfriend said to me, “I wish there could be Christmas music playing all the time.” Then I told him about this beanie. It eliminates the need for headphones because the music plays directly from the hat, and it’s Bluetooth, so it can connect straight to your phone. Plus, with the weather getting cooler, they’re going to want to cover up their ears to stay warm anyway, so this hat is double-y awesome.
//BEER MAKING KIT
If your guy is a fan of craft beer, he’ll love this kit to brew his own beer at home. It’s the perfect combination of enjoying a cold brew and having the satisfaction of doing a job well done (assuming that the beer turns out okay).
The more technology that enters our lives, the more we like to be as hands-free as possible. The Echo Dot allows you to do that without having the larger (more invasive?) version of the Echo. With Alexa, you can play music, make and answer calls, control lights, fans, locks, TVs, garage doors, etc. It’s pretty awesome, and your technology-loving man is sure to be impressed by this little gift. Plus, they’ve got a pretty awesome deal happening on Amazon right now, so you can even get him a couple if you think he’ll want to use it in multiple rooms.
Because everyone needs a tool set for some reason or another.
//GLOBE WHISKEY DECANTER SET
This gift is perfect for any guy who’s a fan of whiskey. It’s even more perfect for him if he also happens to love traveling. This set comes with a stand that makes the decanter look like a legit globe. Plus it comes with two travel-themed glasses, a set of whiskey stones, a funnel and a glass stopper.
//BLUETOOTH TRACKING DEVICE
If your guy is known for losing his keys, his phone, the remote or anything of the sort on a regular basis, this gift is perfect for him. You can attach it to anything, and it’s so lightweight and small that it’s pretty non-invasive. The device uses the TrackR app to find whatever you may have lost, and you can even use Alexa to find your phone if you happen to lose that. What’s even more awesome is that if the battery on your tracker is running low, you can order replacement batteries fo’ FREE! Through the link, you can get five for the price of three!
//MINI PORTABLE PROJECTOR
I’m such a fan of projectors because it eliminates the need to buy a large TV, depending on what you’re using it for. Plus, many of my guys friends don’t have too much on their walls anyway, so if they have a blank space on their wall at home, they can easily say it’s the projector wall, thus eliminating the need to hang anything up. Plus, this one is small, so if he travels, he can take it with him to use in hotel rooms or even over to a friend’s house to watch the big game or play music videos at a party (think Smart House. This was my dream!).
If your guy is a fan of wine, this wine cooler is perfect. It’s a tabletop cooler that holds six bottles (because who needs to hold more than that? If you have more than six bottles of white wine, you need to drink them faster #amiright?). Plus, this one is super affordable, so you could also get him a couple bottles to start him off.
Dart boards are the perfect addition to any guy’s man cave, game room, office or even their bedroom. Darts are such a fun way to relieve stress, and really just fun in general. Plus, they’re at most bars, so having one at home will allow him to polish his skills and impress people while he’s out on the town. This one looks nice with a dark cherry finish, and the cabinets fold out to reveal multiple scoreboards.
What guy doesn’t like French fries? Even if your guy is a health nut, this fryer uses a tiny fraction of the amount of oil usually needed to make fries. Plus, it also grills, bakes and roasts food. What’s even better is that it’s dishwasher safe, so if your guy isn’t a big fan of hand-washing, he can just throw this sucker in the dishwasher. The particular deal that’s linked also includes two cookbooks, one physical copy and an e-book.
What are you getting the guys in your life for Christmas?
