Gift Ideas for Every Man in Your Life
Whether the dude you’re shopping for — father, boyfriend, husband, brother, son, nephew, etc. — loves the outdoors or is a total nerd (or maybe a little bit of both), we’ve found the perfect gifts for every man in your life.
For the Tech-Savvy Guy:
If your guy still wears an old school watch every day, but you’ve noticed him eyeing the new fitness watches, then an Apple Watch may be the perfect happy medium. Though a bit on the pricey side, there isn’t much they can’t do!
The Amazon Echo is an excellent option for men who like having the coolest new gadgets to play around with. However, there are many other types of portable bluetooth speakers that range from completely waterproof, to small ones you can fit on a keychain that would also make a great gift — it just depends on how he might use it (and your price range).
For the Foodie:
Similarly to Treatsie, Taste Trunk sends monthly boxes filled with yummy treats. However, the difference is that Taste Trunk isn’t limited to only sweets — that is, unless you choose one of their themed boxes such as “Death by Chocolate” or “Manly Sweets.” Instead of choosing your treats based on a taste profile (like Treatsie), Taste Trunk features themed boxes that you can either send individually or as part of a monthly subscription.
They also have an entire section of themed boxes that are curated just for men. If you don’t see a themed box you think he’d like, you can also simply create your own box and choose exactly which treats go inside. Though this subscription offers more options, it is also more expensive, at $50 per box, or between $30 and $45 when you sign up for a monthly subscription.
For the Geeky Guy:
A Cool Mug
If you’re dealing with a coffee-drinking, Harry Potter-loving kind of guy, then you can’t go wrong with something as specific and thoughtful as this cool mug (and if he doesn’t like it, just keep it for yourself!).
Book of the Month Club
Personally, BOTM is my absolute favorite subscription box on the planet. So if your guy is even half as nerdy as me, he will probably love it too! While signing him up for a regular 3, 6, or 12 month membership (prices vary depending on the length) is never a bad idea, BOTM has also put together a collection of five books that he’s sure to love — check it out.
For the Sharp-Dressed Man:
Dollar Shave Club
Who said being clean shaven has to be expensive? In a world filled with pricey razors and fancy (and unnecessary) shaving equipment, Dollar Shave Club is calling BS. Sending you your choice of razor and replacement heads every month, DSC makes shaving easy for only $1 to $9 per month. Dollar Shave Club is great for men or women, so if you’re not already on the bandwagon, what are you waiting for? If you think your dude would dig it too, you can either sign him up for a few months of free razors, or if you’re not sure which razor he would like, you can just give him an e-giftcard for DSC that he can spend however he pleases.

Though style/clothing subscription boxes are generally for women, there are some companies that offer their services to men as well — and Trunk Club is one of the leaders in the market. (In fact, Trunk Club was originally only for men, and has just recently extended their services to women.) Trunk Club is great whether your man is already well dressed, or if he just needs some serious style help. Since you probably want to let him talk to his own stylist, you can give him a giftcard to help him get started.
For the Active Dude:
When in doubt, just find the home improvement isle of any store and pick something that looks useful (even if it looks like a torture device), like a tool box.
A Fun Game
Outdoor games, like bean bag toss, are a fun way to spend time with your dad. I can’t even count the amount of weekends my family has spent playing this game (among countless other games). My dad is *almost* as competitive as I am, so it seems like every year we end up getting him some type of new game to challenge him with.
For the Traveler:
Because the best gift you can give any man in your life is spending time with him, why not do it in a place you’ve never been before (or a place you’d like to go back to)? Either book a cheap flight on a random weekend or find an event somewhere that he would enjoy and give him an all-expense-paid trip. Think about it: Would you mind being surprised with a free weekend trip to a random city? Didn’t think so.
