With Black Friday coming up, it is the perfect time to start preparing for Christmas and the Holidays! I find shopping for men to be extremely difficult! Aside from the unoriginal gifts (enter: cologne, clothes, a wallet), I never know what to get for my boyfriend, dad, and brother-in-law. If you feel the same way, this post is for you!
The gift guide includes a wide range of unique gift ideas for the men in your life. I enlisted the help of my boyfriend to come up with this guide and all of these suggestions have been vetted and approved by him! Happy shopping!
Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar – Countdown to Christmas with this fun lego advent calendar! This is the perfect gift to give at the start of the Holiday season to get into the Christmas spirit.
Weber Grill – It’s cold outside come Christmas but it really is the perfect time to splurge on a nice propane grill. Unlike charcoal you can use it year round and most importantly, a propane grill doesn’t produce the same carcinogens that charcoal grills do. This one also comes in 5 different colors!
Hugo Boss Black Button Down Dress Shirt – My boyfriend loves Hugo Boss dress shirts as they are stylish, amazing quality and have a great fit. You can’t go wrong with a simple black button shirt, even for someone picky!
Disney Christmas LionChief Set – This gift is pricey but LionChief trains have circled around the family Christmas trees for decades. My boyfriend’s dad got his first train set as a 6 year old boy. He and his brother played with that train set and now his niece and nephew do too. It’s a wonderful investment.
“There are two Christmas movies that I love. The first is Christmas Vacation and the other one is It’s a Wonderful Life starring Jimmy Stewart. Christmas Vacation is a traditional American comedy about a normal dysfunctional American family during the Christmas season. It has some crude language and crude humor so it is not for everyone. It’s a Wonderful Life is in my opinion the quintessential American Christmas movie about a guy (George Bailey) who is about to lose everything and wishes he wasn’t born. His guardian angel Clarence shows him what life would be like if he hadn’t been born and it changes his mind about wanting to die. I implore you to watch as it has many inspiring themes throughout the movie and best of all it puts Hallmark movies to shame”
Timberland Boots – These boots are stylish but waterproof. They look great with a pair of jeans and match practically every color. My boyfriend has a similar pair and they look great.
Snowblower – Unless you live in Florida, sunny LA, or some other place with endless summer, chances are you’ve had to shovel the snow from your driveway. Shoveling snow is a great workout but it’s not fun. The man in your life will have fun though taking their new lithium ion battery powered Toro snowblower out and watching the snow shoot out from the deflector and landing on their lawn. Getting a battery operated snowblower means you won’t have to deal with gasoline and the noise associated with it. Best of all, battery operated is more eco-friendly so you can be sure to help keep global warming at bay.
Star Wars Darth Vader Etched Glasses & Ice Molds Set – As you can probably already tell, my boyfriend loves Star Wars. This set says it all. Imagine your boyfriend sipping from the set with ice cubes floating in his beverage of choice on Christmas day. You can’t go wrong with this Williams-Sonoma set.
I hope you found this post to be useful and you now know exactly what you want to give to the men in your life. It not, just remember gift giving should be about them. Think about what they like and what they would want, not what you want them to have. You can’t go wrong with that approach!
