32 Gifts for Men That Will Make You a Look Like a Hero
There isn’t a single boring tie on our list of the best gifts for men—just the fun, practical, and drool-worthy stuff they really want!
Something that inspires his best work
This Graphic Image 2019 Desk Diary, Organizer, and Appointment Book is crafted from rich, genuine calfskin leather to make him look and feel like the powerful professional you know he is. Sure, he could use an app on his phone, but there’s something special about actually putting pen to paper that could make his biggest dreams, ambitions, and meetings so much more tangible. If you like this idea, be sure to check out our list of great Amazon Prime gifts too.
An out-of-this-world shave
This Philips Norelco Special Edition Star Wars Poe Wet & Dry Electric Shaver is the razor he’s been secretly swooning over. As a bonus gift, impress him with your mastery of these mind-blowing Star Wars facts. He may be old enough to shave, but he’s still young at heart.
Something for him to relax in
Whether it’s providing a break from running errands in the summer or a moment’s escape from home office paper work, this Wise Owl Outfitters Hammock will quickly become his favorite non-essential gift. It’s that little luxury he didn’t know he needed—and it’s a total cinch to hang.
He’ll control your home tech from afar, like a magician
A plug doesn’t seem like a fancy gift, but the Amazon Smart Plug is different. When used with an Alexa app, it allows your guy to control any outlet remotely. That means he can flip on and off lights, fans, and appliances—right from his phone. Perfect for making it look like you’re home when you’re away, and for adjusting your environment without ever having to leave the couch.
He’ll walk like he’s on a cloud in these
The Vivobarefoot Men’s Gobi II Leather Walking Shoe is the daily-use shoe he’s been dreaming of, thanks to their comfortable soles and rubber bottoms and the cool, modern styling you’ve been dreaming of getting him into.
A full grooming set
If the guy in your life isn’t into oodles of grooming products, he’ll love this back to basics Art of Sport Athlete Collection, packed with essentials like deodorant, soap so good he won’t want to share, and an invigorating hair and body wash. It’ll be everything he needs for the gym locker and more, thanks to the gentle masculine scent, and the clean packaging will class up his side of the medicine cabinet. (These are the little hygiene rules all men should live by.)
When does pizza “burn” calories? When it comes in the form of a snow tube. He’ll have a blast playing around on this Big Mouth Inc Supreme Pizza Snow Tube. And just imagine all the great pics you’ll snap! (Just don’t eat fresh snow—here’s why.)
The comfiest lounge pants
He’ll appreciate your show of support for his streaming habit (Netflix is actually addictive, but you probably already knew that) with this gift of complete lounging comfort. And he probably won’t say no to a back-up pair of these Original Penguin French Terry Lounge Pants next year too.
A warm, winter day piece
He can layer this Goodwear S Curve Full Zip Hoodie in Looped French Terry, wear it alone, or just snap selfies in it all day long. It’s flattering, easily-matched, and super comfortable—his favorite style.
Stuff his stockings with more… stockings
If the guy in your life is always losing socks, complaining of cold toes, or spending a lot of time on his feet, he probably needs new socks. These Basic Outfitters Men’s Fun Patterned Novelty Dress Socks are reinforced (because life is complicated), affordable, and they make a great stocking stuffer. Plus, it turns out sleeping with socks may actually be a healthy thing, making this one of the most practical Christmas gifts he’ll get.
For the top chef at home
If he’s constantly cooking up the best chicken marsala and other delicious dishes, he’ll revel in this Copper Chef Deep Square Pan Set. It’s deep enough to cook especially saucy dishes (add an extra pour of marsala wine, will ya?), easy to clean thanks to a nonstick surface, and looks like a trendy dream in any kitchen.
For the tech wiz in your life
Did you know SanDisk iXpand Flash Drive delivers a simple way to back up his camera roll automatically? It plugs right into his iPhone and iPad and transfers all his best pictures and videos in minutes. It’s compact size makes it an ideal stocking stuffer.
A little something to simplify his life
The Chamberlain MyQ Smart Garage Door Opener is a wireless and wifi-controlled garage door opening that works from a smartphone app. That means he’ll be able to open the door for the neighbor who wants to borrow the lawnmower while he’s out of town, let contractors and dog walkers come and go, or just about anything else he may want to open the garage door for (even if he’s just watching the game on the sofa).
The best sleep of his life
Sheets may not seem that exciting, but a new set of Boll & Branch organic cotton sheets can help ensure that the guy in your life is sleeping properly, and that’s priceless. Pairing them with these relaxation techniques will give him a sleep slam dunk.
The path to delicious meals and cool crafts
Give him the one thing he’ll need to make the coolest smoked cocktails and aged, distressed wood furniture all at once—the Bernzomatic TS4000 Trigger Start Torch. It’ll char meats, sear in tataki-style flavor on his favorite salmon, help give those generic side tables a bit of old world flair, and even add that smokey taste that’s so popular in modern cocktails.
For the outdoorsy on-the-go guy
Not all water bottles are created equal, which is why the Contigo Thermalock Matterhorn Stainless Steel Water Bottle will be a hit with the man in your life. It’s rugged, sturdy, and easily clips to his favorite bag or backpack.
His TV will get an upgrade
Turn any television into a smart hub with the Amazon Fire Stick. This streaming media stick plugs right into your TV and you can control it with your voice. Bonus, if he already has an Amazon Alexa, he can also use that to control his television. Choose from 500,000 movies and TV episodes on your favorite apps such as Netflix, Prime Video, Hulu, STARZ, SHOWTIME, CBS All Access, and others.
For the mountain man
Forget hiking boots or water bottles. The really adventurous men will go wild for this Coleman Carlsbad Fast Pitch 6-Person Dome Tent. You’ll be practically glamping at these amazing American campsites that should be on your bucket list.
For the city slicker with the best hair
The holidays are rife with parties galore, but keeping his hair as great as it was in his 20s doesn’t have to be a pocket or time-draining experience. Give your gent an Aveda Invati Exfoliating Shampoo & Thickening Conditioner Set to keep his scalp healthy and his hair in perfect form without much fuss or muss.
Satisfy his sweet tooth and love of protein all at once
An Alter Eco Dark Salted Almonds Chocolate Bar is the kind of thing sweet fantasies are made of. They’re made with roasted almonds, Ecuadorian chocolate, and a sprinkle of fleur de sel. Low on ingredients, high on flavor. It’s one of our favorite Christmas gifts for men simply because the health benefits of chocolate are so bountiful.
Gone fishin’ for great gifts
If the guy is into fishing gear or just needs a little more time in the great outdoors, he’ll be excited to see this Shakespeare Catch More Fish Spinning Fish Combo sticking out of his stocking. It’s a fun way for the recreational fisherman to get out there and source his own dinner. For inspiration, check out these fierce photos of big game fishing.
A laundry set for his finer things
If he’s just not the type to reliably dry clean his suits all the time, don’t worry, he’s part of the majority of men lacking interest, or time, in doing exactly that. The Frey Clothing Care Kit for Men is a five-piece set that’s great for sensitive skin, and includes a natural laundry detergent, clothing spray, dryer sheets, and more. The whole set is formulated with essential oils like cedar wood and amber, so we know he’ll be excited to put his fresh laundry on. All you need to do is teach him some laundry rules (like how to tell if you’re using too much detergent), and he can wash his best clothes at home.
A truly delicious bouquet
What’s tasty, elegant, and sophisticated? This Olympia Provisions Six-Stem Salami Bouquet, which is quite clearly the foodie dude’s equivalent of a bunch of top-notch roses. He’ll be treated to six types of slow-cured salami including Cacciatore, Sopressata, Finocchiona, Saucisson Aux Noisettes, Saucisson D’Arles, Saucisson D’Alsace.
Pajamas he’ll share with the whole family
Are these matching PajamaGram pajamas the cutest, or what? They’re one of our best gifts for Dad, an adorable choice for brothers who still like family photos, and generally some of the comfiest gear in town. They come in a variety of sizes ranging from infant to the most fully-grown adults, and are easy to wash, wear, and photograph on holiday mornings.
A throwback cooler
Nostalgia is cool, or in this case, an actual cooler. This Throwback Mixtape Boombox Cooler is the perfect place to store cold drinks, pregame snacks, and anything that needs a good chill. The conversation-starting benefits are a free bonus with purchase.
His favorite song all the timevia amazon.com
Music triggers positive memories, according to science, so he’ll give rave reviews to this Coby Rugged Water-Resistant Bluetooth Speaker. He can bring it to the beach, camping, the office, or heck, he can even take it with him in the shower.
A weight off his back
This 2(X)ist Men’s Nylon Backpack is lightweight, durable, and just the right level of cool for the on-the-go guy in your life. By the way, did you know that loving backpacks says a lot about your personality?
For the sports fan ready to brave any weather
Each year, he heads out in his best gloves, hats, and warm winter coat to attend those very-long, very-necessary outdoor sports events. Don’t just hope that coat will do the trick, give him a new Rumpl Indoor/Outdoor Puffy Blanket. It’s the light, packable gift he’ll thank you for season after season.
Did he ask for power? Give it to him.
If he’s handy, encourage it by gifting him the DeWalt Compact Lithium Ion Drill/Driver Kit. It will get him to tackle all those projects he’s been meaning to complete, and probably a few you didn’t even know about. He can test out his new toy with our super cool hack to catch drill dust too.
For the busy (but clean) guy
He’ll be forever grateful for this iRobot Roomba 690 Robot Vacuum with Wi-Fi Connectivity. It’s great for pet hair, works on carpets or hardwood floors, and works with Alexa — and all he has to do is tap a button on his phone to start it up. It made our list of very awesome tech gifts.
