The men’s gift guide… my biggest challenge every holiday season and always one of my favorite guides. This year, I got some help from Anel and our friend Jesse, two men with great taste, who gave their input and final approval on the list. Whether you’re shopping for your dad, father-in-law, husband, brother, or pal, there should be a little something on this list for everyone.
Xtratuf Boots, $94: Anel insisted on me including these boots in my guide so here they are in the number one slot! After posting them on my IG stories a few weeks ago, I got flooded with messages saying that your significant others love them too. I guess they were originally fishing boots so they have a really strong non-slip bottom.
Carhartt Hat, $25: A staple for every man, woman, and child where I come from in New Hampshire, Carhartt hats are now trendy and I’m into it. They’re the warmest hats out there. No muss, no fuss, sleek design. They also make a great gift and under $30.
Temperature Controlled Mug, $99: The Ember temperature-controlled mug lets you set your drink to whatever temperature you want, and then maintains that temperature for an hour.
Bitters Bar Set, $34: A fun stocking stuffer for guys (or gals) who love a good cocktail.
LL Bean Shirt, $69: Jesse and Anel both vouched for this LL Bean shirt. Its thick fabric and simple slim fit look good on any man.
Ooni Gas-Powered Pizza Oven, $399: This is a great gift for a husband, partner, or roommate because you get the goods when the pizza is cooked! But seriously, these pizza ovens are amazing and it would be so awesome as a gift.
Hyperice Vibrating Foam Roller,
$199 $149: If he has any IT band issues or works out a lot, this vibrating foam roller is pretty incredible. We are a big Hyperice family and trust all of their products.
Tommy John Underwear, 3-pack for
$102 $92: I’ve never had a men’s gift guide without these undies. They’re unbeatable. Period.
$349 $224: I feel like I haven’t shut up about the Solo Stove but I bought it for Anel on sale for our anniversary and we love it. It is a fire pit with real logs and real fire but the design is such that there isn’t smoke. It’s on sale again now!
Golf Ball Whiskey Chillers, $30: Another good stocking stuffer for the guy who has everything.
Personalized Golf Towel, $39: Anel is a big golfer so many of the gifts I buy him are golf (or garden) related. This is a classic gift that any golfer will use time and again.
Trade Coffee Subscription, $60: I did a partnership with Trade a few months back and ended up buying a subscription for my brother-in-law for his birthday last month. It’s a cool and different gift idea that supports small businesses. The service asks the recipient a bunch of questions about how they drink their coffee and their taste preferences then sends three bags (ground or whole bean) from a small-batch coffee maker.
Leather BBQ Gloves, $69: For any self-proclaimed grill-master.
Truff Hot Sauce, $17: Anel basically drinks this stuff and orders it in bulk. I originally had a Polaroid in this slot because who wouldn’t want a little throw-back camera? But Anel insisted that his favorite hot sauce was a better gift so here we are! It is actually super delicious and has black truffle oil mixed into the sauce.
Rothy’s Driving Loafers, $185: You know I love a Rothy shoe and the men’s styles have come a long way in the last two years. These loafers are classy, comfy, washable, and sustainable.
