Gifts for Him

Is it just me or are guys SO hard to buy for? I find myself scratching my head every year when it comes to my father and father-in-law, my adult-aged nephews and even my husband. This year, I did some homework for me and you and have a really good list of ideas to share at all price points and ages.

Bose – At the top of my list are a number of electronic items from Bose. My husband LOVES his wireless headphones and uses them at work and at home. And the mini blue tooth speaker is a no brainer for any college aged kid to have in his dorm.

Wicked Good Slippers – I would not be a good Maine girl if I did not include L.L. Bean’s slippers near the top of this list! All of my family wears these slippers and I have gifted them to most of the men in my life over the years!

Skincare Set – Yes, men need skincare too and no, Irish Spring is not enough! My husband is partial to Clinique’s line as he really loves the shave cream. These items make great stocking stuffers. Kiehl’s is a great option as well as Jack Black. Take the gift up a notch with a monogrammed dopp kit!

Patagonia 1/4 zip sweater – I feel like every guy needs one of these in his wardrobe. They are such a good staple and particularly for that guy that likes to keep it casual. These sweaters are as comfy as a fleece but paired with a nice button down, dress up really nicely too.

Tech gloves – No real explanation needed. We live in a digital world and even when it’s frigid outside, we gotta have access to that phone!

Burberry Scarf – The iconic Burberry plaid is a perfect gift for that hard to buy for guy who loves to look his best. This is an investment present for sure but it’s a classic look that will last forever.

Tiffany Cuff links – Cuff links are never a bad idea, especially for the man who loves his suit. And Tiffany has an abundant selection to accommodate just about any taste from classical to whimsical.

Driving Cap – My husband has this exact hat and my dad has several versions of it. I absolutely love this look on a man. It is very old school cool to me. Get one for your guy!

Leather bracelet – I just adore this leather bracelet with the personalized words engraved. What a sweet gift to a boyfriend or from a mom to her son. The message can be tucked inside the wrist so no one else even knows what it says. LOVE!

Yeti – my husband recently got this style Yeti with a screw top and he loves it. After using Nalgene bottles for years, he is a total convert and at just under $30, this is a budget friendly buy that will please even the hardest to buy for guy on your list.

Men’s Running Apparel – Any sort of winter work out wear is a good idea. Compression tights are good for men too!

Good book  – And of course, it’s not a good list without a great book recommendation. Non-fiction is always a good idea. I’m partial to anything Tim Keller writes.

So there you have it – I’m shopping right from this list this year. I hope it gives you some inspiration too!
