The Ultimate Gift Guide for HIM

I'm excited to bring you today's post because I enlisted the help of B to bring you the highly requested
gift guide for men

I feel like men can be SO difficult to shop for, mainly because it's out of my wheelhouse. Clothes, I'm fine with it. Home decor, I've got this. Sports stuff, technology, tools.... um, not my specialty. With help from an expert, B, I'm bringing you some of his favorite gifts & his current wish list for any guy in your life. With that said, I hope y'all understand that this was not a quick process either. It took hours for me to gather some gift ideas from B.

Hope Y'all enjoy . . .

Stocking Stuffers
What guy doesn't love slippers? J.Crew Factory makes a great pair that are affordable and rubber-soled, so he can wear them outside to get the mail or take the trash out. These are a favorite in my house, among B, myself, and my day, so usually, we each get a fresh pair around the holidays. LLBean also makes a similar pair.
Ever spend a Friday evening in Home Depot? Fun, right? Men love to scope out new tools. My dad recently shared this exact tool, a voltage tester, with B, and he's obsessed. This is a great tool to have on hand because if something stops working, like the cable box or light, this voltage tester can tell you whether the object is receiving electricity or not. Both my dad and B were particular about this exact brand because it's not just a voltage tester, but it also has a flashlight and other cool features.

Athletic Wear.
B made a commitment to go to the gym more last year for his New Year's Resolution. And unlike many, he has stuck to that commitment. One thing I admire about B is his ability to keep going. There will be times our lives get busy, and the gym gets put on the back burner for that week; however, he doesn't let that stop him. He just starts over the next week. I need to be more forgiving of myself!

Technology/ Splurge
Echo/ Alexa.
This continues to be a fan favorite in our household. B usually asks for an updated one as needed. For example, the latest echo dot generation has a better speaker and displays the time. The Alexa, or google home, gadgets are also something you can expand or add on too. If someone has an Alexa, they can also get plugs so they can ask, "Alexa, turn on the Christmas tree." You can also use them in more than one room, as they also serve as Bluetooth speakers.
B has the exact drone pictured, and he loves it! This is a splurge gift, but definitely more affordable than some of the high-end drones. B enjoys using his while on vacation, at the beach, park, etc. to explore different perspectives and happenings. You could also use it to check for maintenance on the house. Whoever gets this gift, will need to register theirs with the FFA.
5 in 1 Adapter. 
This is the perfect gift for the jet setter. It is compatible with 150 countries and compact, so easy to fit into your suitcase. I'm thinking about getting this for B, for our upcoming trip abroad.

Holiday Attire.
I love all the new plaids at J.Crew Factory. They are all coordinating this year, so the whole family can be matching. This year, I picked up this tie for B to match my shirt (this year's version) for our upcoming holiday parties.
I got B this flask for hist birthday, and he's definitely a fan. B likes it because it's large, so he doesn't need to carry multiple water bottles to the gym, and it keeps the water cold.
Overnight Bag.
A good overnight bag is a must-have for the man in your life. I'm partial to this one because I love the different textures. The leather straps make such a statement (not really important to most guys, but I like it). Another great feature is the exterior shoe compartment. B really hates having his shoes near his clean clothes, understandably so, and this compartment makes it easy to keep clothes clean and fresh!

Other go-to gifts of mine



  1. An interesting dialogue is price comment. I feel that it is best to write more on this matter, it may not be a taboo topic however usually individuals are not enough to talk on such topics. To the next. Cheers. doktor terli─či
