Husband/Father/Brother Gift Guide

Christmas is COMING! 2020 is weird but it's also flying by and it's time to start the Christmas shopping. I know this year has been hard for many people. If you are not shopping this year, I respect that and I respect the need to make hard decisions based on your circumstances. Gifts or no gifts, there are so many ways to make the holidays special. For those who are shopping, I was mindful in curating this list in include small businesses as well as large and a variety of price points. 

This gift guide is for the men in your life. I am not sure why, but I always have the hardest time shopping for the men in my life... husband, father, brother, etc. Based on the responses I got when I asked one instastories, this is a common struggle to find the perfect gift for the men in your life! I pulled together a selection of gifts I have gifted to the men in my life in the past with positive reactions from the recipients. I hope you find this helpful and it saves you a little stress this holiday season. Happy Shopping!

1. Shaving subscription

Every man has to shave right? I did this for my husband a few years ago and he loved it. It was great because it was a gift that kept on giving all year. I used Dollar Shave Club but there are lots of options out there!

2. Fancy, manly coffee

Start their day off right with strong coffee! I gifted Black Rifle Coffee to my husband last year and he really enjoyed the coffee and the fact that it was a small business owned by United States Veterans. It's something simple but often the simplest things are the most enjoyed!

3. Grilling Supplies

What guy doesn't love to grill?? Custom apron, new grill tools, spices... the options are endless and can be really fun. I always find that the men in my life love gifts they can really use the most. This is a great, useable gift!

4. Airpods

My husband steals my airpods all the time... seems like a sign that he wants his own. I am sure the men in your life would enjoy wireless listening too!

5. Slippers

Men like to be cozy too... they might not say it out loud but they do! No one likes cold toes so gift those gentleman a nice pair of slippers that they can enjoy all winter long. They would never buy it for themselves so do it for them :) 

6. Tools

What is it with men and tools? My husband and dad ask for tools every year for Christmas. There is just something about men and their tools I will never understand. Just buy the drill and wrap it up!

7. Classic Watch

Every man needs a nice, quality watch. I gifted my husband a customized wooden one for our anniversary a few years ago and he wears it every time we get dressed up. For the more tech obsessed, a smart watch might be the perfect gift.


8. Custom Wallet

Another classic useful item. Most men beat up their wallets and could use a replacement. There are tons of great customizable leather wallet options from small artisans on Etsy. 

9. Toiletry Bag

Shopping for a traveler? A custom leather toiletry bag will be a great gift. 

10. Book from a favorite author

My dad loves John Grisham so I buy him the newest release every year

Every year for either Christmas, Birthday or Fathers Day, I get a book for my dad by his favorite author. It has become a bit of a tradition for us that I buy him the newest releases yearly. Take a peek at the mans bookshelf and see if there is a theme you could pick up on with a gift of a book.
