Holiday Gift Guide | Men’s Edition


This post was so fun to put together! Gift guides are a lot of work, but I think they are so helpful to have and also give me some great ideas along the way! I hope you guys find something you love for the men in your life! I have carefully curated this list from items my hubby has and loves, things on his wish list and things I think he would like.

I tried to keep it simple with most items coming from easily accessible and affordable stores. Most of these places will have sales coming up for Black Friday- so if you like any of these items, add them to your list to check out next week!

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

1.Garment Dyed Henley | Old Navy

My husband has this henley and loves it. It’s super soft and comfy. It’s also super affordable and comes in a handful of colors. I love it because you can wear it alone or layer it.

2.Caputo & Co. Leather Double Wrap Bracelet | J Crew

I’m fairly certain this is in my hubby’s top three for his wishlist. He likes to pair a bracelet of some sort with his watches and this is a great neutral piece to add for layering and texture.

3.Bose SoundLink Bluetooth speaker | Amazon

Both my brother-in-law and father-in-law have the Bose docking station (which I’m fairly certain they don’t make anymore with all of the phone adapters changing) and let me tell you, it puts off AMAZING sound. This is a more affordable option that I’m sure your man would be just as pleased with, and is more easily transported!

4.Personalized Leather Portfolio | Etsy

What man doesn’t like an all-in-one situation to put all of this necessities in while at the office. I love this option because it closes and has a spot for your phone, pen, and business cards. It can also be personalized!

5.Aston Grey Tokyo Saddle Oxford | DSW

These are a favorite in my husband’s wardrobe. They are a bit more fancy, but not quite as serious as wing-tipped shoes. They add a lot of style to your outfit, without being overdone. They also wear really well.

6.Waterford Lismore Double Old-Fashioned Glasses | Macys

My husband got these as a gift for his 30th birthday and they are quite possibly one of his favorite gifts he’s ever received. They are legit. They are heavy, but the glass is still thin. They are sparkly and beautiful (this is the woman’s perspective, ha!). A great option for your drinking man.

7.Sock Gift Box | Charles Tyrwhitt

We have tried a lot of socks and my husband blows through them all. Literally, they get holes in no time. These socks are the ones that have lasted the longest and I love that they still come in fun prints; that aren’t too crazy!

8.Foldover Fob | Thrux Lawrence

I LOVE this idea for a key fob. I have never seen anything like it and I love that it keeps the keys from jingling all over the place. Perfect for the man in your life that carries a lot of keys!

9.Slim Heavyweight Chamois Shirt | J Crew

Hubby has a shirt similar to this and it’s a great option for a cold day. It’s super soft, layer-able and washes nicely. Perfect for a camping or ski trip!

10.Leather Toiletry Bag | Etsy

Who else has a husband that is using a TSA ziplock bag that is way past due for an upgrade? This is a nice upgrade if you don’t actually have to have you toiletries in a clear plastic bag while traveling. I love that it’s from a small  shop and can be personalized too!

11.Slim Fit Non-Iron Shirts | Charles Tyrwhitt

Another win from Charles Tyrwhitt. We’ve had all of the “good” brands of shirts and all of them my husband either blew out the elbows on, or the fit was too baggy. These are perfect. That are slim-fitting, while still leaving plenty of comfortable room and are well made. Also, customer service is amazing if you ever have any issues!

12.Desert Book Taupe Distressed Suede | Clarks

These are an oldie, but a goodie. And, y’all, they last forever and work with some many different outfits. My hubby has both this distressed taupe color as well as the tan tumbled leather color and wears them all the time.

13.Leather iPhone Case | J Crew

This case is so sharp looking and feels great in your hand. It wears nicely and is really affordable considering it is leather!

14.Bose SoundSport In-Ear Headphones | Amazon

I got these for my husband a couple of years ago and he loves them. I was totally against having an expensive pair for myself until I started needing to wear headphones more frequently. The ones that come with my phone are so uncomfortable in comparison. These also stay in your ear and cancel out background noise much better.

15.Braided Leather Bracelet | Etsy

This is another great option for a bracelet to pair with a watch. It adds texture and interest to his accessory wardrobe. My husband has a similar one that is a single layer and he wears it everyday.

16.Hooded Frost- Free Vest | Old Navy

This is another wardrobe staple for my hubby. He has a previous version of this from Old Navy, minus the hood. It’s great quality for the price and is perfect for this unpredictable, but usually mild NC weather!

17.Matein Laptop Backpack | Amazon

We have been on the hunt for my husband a new work bag. He’s pretty functional when it comes to what he carries. He currently has a company-branded tech backpack and likes it, but wanted something non-branded and a little less tech-y. With all of his requirements, this one fit the bill. It has a padded laptop pocket, a place to slip it over his suitcase handle when he travels and is big enough to carry some essentials.

18.S’well Vacuum Insulated Water Bottle | Amazon

I love this wood-look water bottle for your man on-the-go. This was another item hubby said he might want added to his own wishlist!

19.Patagonia Better Sweater Jacket | U.S. Outdoors

This is another top pick from my hubby. He grabbed this last year during the Cyber Monday sales and wears it all the time- another amazing piece for this finicky NC weather!

20.Ni’O Boots | OluKai

We came across these boots while shopping in the shops at Biltmore. They are such a cool mix of function and style. They’d be perfect for the outdoors guy in your life!

21.Laptop Sleeve & Mouse Pouch | Amazon

For the guys on-the-go, this laptop sleeve and pouch are great for when you don’t feel like lugging around a bag and just need something to protect your computer and keep some essentials with you. I love the simple felt style.

22.Leatherman Multitool | Amazon

This was probably one of the first Christmas gifts I got my hubby. I grew up with a pretty handy dad, and he had one he always used. We actually keep ours in our junk drawer in the kitchen for any small, random jobs we need done!  It’s a great all-in-one tool!

23.Mercer Watch Roll | Mark & Graham

Another top contender for the hubby’s wish-list. Little does he know, santa already had it on the list. This is great for the watch-man in your life that likes to have a little variety while traveling. I like that it holds just a couple of watch options for when you need a little variety!

24.Froz Ice Ball Maker | Amazon

This is similar to a gift my hubby got from my brother a couple of Christmas’s ago. He got a single ball-maker in a Jack Daniel’s gift set, and he absolutely loves using it. When I asked my hubby’s opinion, he said he definitely likes that this makes multiple balls for ready use.

25.Wicked Good Slippers | L.L. Bean

These slippers y’all… they last a lifetime. My hubby is on his second pair, his first of which he got in high school or college from his parents! They are super warm and comfy. The only caution- the bottoms are leather, so you can’t really wear them outside and with a lot of wear, they can get a bit slick.

26.Jersey-Knit Joggers | Old Navy

I got these last year for my hubs for Christmas and he loves them. They are super comfy, wash and wear well and are super affordable (love me some Old Navy!).

27.Hyde Series Watch Walnut & Black | JORD Watches

This watch y’all.. it is stunning. It is absolutely beautifully crafted, the packing and presentation are on point and the man in your life will love it!
