Still looking for gift ideas for the guys on your list? I’ve rounded up our favorites, the gifts that he’ll love to find under the tree or in his stocking this year!

Many of these gifts are from small businesses, so you’re supporting the economy as well. Keep that in mind when ordering, because shipping may be delayed. If that happens, a photo wrapped up with a ‘Coming Soon’ message will suffice until the real thing arrives!

Since most of us are going to be spending a lot of time at home this winter, I’ve also included ideas to make staying home easier and more fun. Whether it’s working out, cooking, or enjoying the backyard these ideas will enhance the ‘at home’ experience.

Great Gift Ideas for Guys

Here’s our favorite picks for gift ideas for the men on your Christmas list.

breakfast sandwich maker

Hamilton Beach Breakfast Sandwich Maker– the price point is great for this all-in-one sandwich maker. I can see this being perfect for dorms or first time apartment dwellers, but honestly I got one for my husband because he loves a great breakfast sandwich and I’m tired of cleaning the pans. ?

navy blue men's shoes

Rally sneakers– my husband’s best friend texted me that I HAD to get these for my husband. Not sure if it’s because his initials are the same as Cole Haan or because these kicks will add some style to his wardrobe, but either way they’re pretty great.


Handmade beer glass– this is an heirloom type of gift, but WOW is it impressive!

men's leather bag

Personalized toiletry kit– for when we can travel again or containing countertop messes.

portable speaker

Ultimate Ears Wonderboom Speaker– this speaker has amazing sound and is made more taking on adventures, and it has a SOLID 5 stars on Amazon. Great gift!

carved wood map

Handmade city map– you have to check out these amazing carved wood maps! Makes a great gift for someone who’s difficult to shop for.

fire pit idea

Tabletop glass fireplace– this is a DIY kit, so it’s perfect for guys who like to work with their hands and also will appreciate a tabletop fire pit.

tabletop fire pit

Flikr fire pit– another tabletop fire pit for enjoying the feel of a fire pit just about anywhere.

frosted drink glass

Frosted cocktail glass– pair with their favorite beverage, and BOOM, amazing gift idea.

microwave popcorn bowl

Popcorn popper and bowl– stylish and useful, two of my favorite things.

TRX home workout set

TRX fit system– this can be set up almost anywhere, making it perfect for home workouts.

Amazon Echo

Amazon Echo Show– if your husband is as obsessed with home technology as mine is, he’ll love the Echo show. Currently we have everything from lights to window shades to our porch fountain set up on this!

portable golf set

Pop up golf chipping net– have a golf nut in the house who’s missing tee-time?

Traeger grill

Traeger grill– the ULTIMATE gift for grill enthusiasts.

Bose speaker in navy blue

Bose personal speaker– we’re a huge fan of Bose speakers around here, and this one is a gorgeous shade of navy blue.

portable hammock

Hammock– inexpensive and can be set up just about anywhere.

phone and watch charger

iPhone and Apple Watch charging station– this charging station is as good looking as it is useful.

Garmin watch

Garmin watch– big fan of the Garmin! Great for someone who exercises or wants to up their daily movement.

portable projector

Movie projector– home movies are made better when projected on a screen or even outside wall of your home. My husband loves to watch Notre Dame games on the porch projected on a big screen!

YETI mug

Yeti coffee mug– I know, I know. Every gift guide has a YETI. But when it comes to keeping hot liquids hot and cold liquids cold, the YETI really does rule.

mug with Notre Dame play on it

“The Play” Sports Mugs and Coasters- Does the guy you’re shopping for have a favorite team? If so, there’s probably a play that stands out. (I’m a Red Sox fan, so let’s not talk about Bill Buckner, mkay?) For Notre Dame fans, that play probably happened in 1988. Now you can get coasters or mugs from Playbook Products to commemorate that moment!
