Ask Brett what he wants for Christmas or his birthday and he will always say “nothing.” Ugh… the worst possible answer! If you’re in the same boat, I’ve made a list of the 13 best holiday gifts for him to get your wheels turning. Here are some gifts that I plan on getting Brett this year, items that I’ve gotten him in the past that were a hit, or items that readers submitted to me of what they are getting their men for Christmas!
13 Best Holiday Gifts for Him
Well, let’s start off with the obvious: anything to do with their favorite sports teams. Brett’s include the 49ers, Vegas Golden Knights, Yankees, and UNLV. Since we have season tickets to the Vegas Golden Knights (hockey) and he doesn’t have a ton of gear yet, an authentic VGK jersey is one of his main gifts! Think hoodies, hats, and tee shirts. I feel like you can’t go wrong with this one!
Ok this is one of my personal favorites (if you’re shopping for your significant other): Buy a gift for both of you if you know what I mean! Want some cute new lingerie? Buy it and he will love it! Win win for the both of you! If you aren’t super into lingerie, which I know a lot of women aren’t, try going with a cute lace or silk romper or a pretty chemise! They are comfortable and sexy at the same time and aren’t too crazy.
Silicone Rings: I am really excited about this one and will be ordering one for myself as well! This is perfect for men who don’t want to scratch their rings up, or have jobs that don’t allow them to wear their actual wedding rings. It’s perfect for Brett because he typically only wears his wedding ring when we go on dates since he is a firefighter and chooses not to wear it on the job. Some of our friends have these and love them! This is the one I’m ordering Brett in black pearl (also love this one for men) and this is the one I’m ordering myself in rose gold! They are such a good price point for a gift, and I feel like SO many men would love these!
Next up, headphones. The three styles I would recommend are Beats Noise Cancelling wireless (tons of colors available), Bose Noise Cancelling wireless (this pair is on sale!), or Apple airpods. AirPods are great for both working out, working on the go, podcast listeners, etc. I have had mine for over a year now and highly recommend them!
Now is your chance: Closet Basics! If there’s something you wish your man wore or something you want him to start wearing, buy it as a gift. Get those items into their closet while they can’t say no. Some of Brett’s favorites include Hudson Jeans in this style, and these plain Robert Barakett Tees. (Both of these are a major wardrobe game changer!)
Stance socks are such a fun little gift! Known for their crazy styles and soft materials, one is bound to pop out at you and remind you of the person you’re shopping for. They even have some awesome men’s underwear that matches some of the sock styles. I’m linking some of my favorites below! I typically either buy them from Nordstrom or Amazon. (And while you’re at it buy some Stance No Show socks for yourself! I threw out all other socks and only wear them now. LOVE them!)
13 Best Holiday Gifts for Him
Next up, skincare and grooming gift sets! A few really great gift set brands to keep an eye on are Kiehls, Jack Black, and The Art of Shaving! I feel like you can’t go wrong with any of these. Getting Brett to do anything other than wash his face is like pulling teeth, but I guilt him into it when I buy it as a gift. I think this is a really great kit to start off with at only $35 for the essentials, and this men’s lip balm is a top seller every year at Nordstrom! I always throw in a lip balm and a soap on a rope into Brett’s stocking every year. I recommend buying these from Nordstrom because their return policy is so good. When you’re experimenting with new products, I think it’s best to know that if they don’t like it after trying, you can return it!
A Yeti Cooler. These portable coolers look awesome, come in some really cool colors, and are indestructible. Great for people who camp, people with boats, etc.!
Traveling Accessories such as a new piece of luggage, a new carry on/backpack, or even a nice leather toiletry bag are a great gift for anyone who travels! Tumi is one of the top high end brands that comes to mind when I think of men’s luggage. They have so many great styles that will last forever. (Brett also loves their wallets so I linked to some of those too!)
Slippers… but actual nice slippers that will last a long time and are really comfortable! I personally love Ugg slippers and they have some great mens styles out at the moment. You can check out all of the mens slippers at Nordstrom here. Did you know Tempur-pedic makes slippers? Now that just sounds like a heavenly slipper.
Hydro flasks are all the rage these days! They keep your drinks cool for SO long and are a great small gift or add on to another gift! There are plenty of sizes and colors to choose from and they are such a good stainless steel spill proof water bottle.
We haven’t jumped on the Apple Watch train, but this is the number one item that readers submitted when I asked what everyone was getting their men for Christmas! There are many different options and bands out there so be sure to shop around!
