The Holiday Gift Guide for Women has been done (check it out here), and now it’s time to get creative and find some unique and useful gifts for the men in our lives. Whether it be our fathers, brothers, or boyfriends, this gift guide will be rather extensive and hopefully will help you in finding the perfect gifts for the amazing men in your life.
1. Black Leather Flask & Cigar Set $69.95
Does your father/boyfriend love to indulge in cigars? Then this stainless steel and leather flask and cigar gift set is a great gift for them. It’s unique and for a cigar smoker, this would be a nice little accessory for their Cubans and their Jack. Get it Here.
2. Urban Outfitters “What Happened?” Bandage Kit $7
“Baby, what happened?”, him “Ninja Fight”, you look at him like “What the…”, he lifts his sleeve up and there it is. The explanation. On a band-aid. “See…”. Yes, this will happen. I’m pretty sure my boyfriend will injure himself “jousting” while he plays Skyrim on the couch. The band aid will be the verification. This gift is funny and unique! Makes a great stocking stuffer! Get it Here.
3. MUST HAVE Video Games: Skyrim, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 & Battlefield 3 $60 each.
Skyrim: I actually LOVE this game. It’s fun to just watch my boyfriend for hours (I’m serious, HOURS) play this. The graphics are out of this world, and the story lines go off in so many directions that you will NEVER be bored playing, or watching. I highly recommend this single player RPG game.
Call of Duty: First Person & Third Person shooter game with lots of fighting and adventure.
Battlefield: Single player, or multiple online game play. They get to be a U.S and battle in various cities across the word! Woot Woot!
Trust me, he wants at least ONE of these. You’ll thank me later.
Get Skyrim here.
Get Call of Duty here.
Get Battlefield 3 here.
4. Dents Driving Gloves $75
Before you say anything, driving gloves have become so popular in menswear. I personally think they’re super hot. Not to mention, Ryan Gosling has been seen sporting them. So, if you want to give your boyfriend some Ryan Gosling sex appeal, get him these gloves. I’m already swooning. The gloves are the exact ones Ryan is wearing. Get them Here. Also in Black.
5. Barney’s New York Silver Tie Bar $65
With the rage of all things Mad Men, tie bars have made a huge comeback. I personally love the clean and simple ones like this one. Made of silver, the man in your life will be looking dapper like Draper in no time. Get it Here.
6. Vinturi Wine Aerator $39.95
This awesome gadget allows your wine to air as you pour it so you no longer have to wait to enjoy that glass of wine! I’ve used one of these before and the taste without using this vs using this is very different. I highly recommend this and it’s quite an impressive gift to give the man in your life! I know my father and boyfriend would both love this as they’re total winos! Get it Here.
7. Ben Sherman Black Messenger Bag $99
A good messenger bag is always in style. Whether it’s for work or travel, having a bag that’s not camo or made of duty-free bags is a must. Most guys don’t think about how important it is to have a place to put your laptop, magazines and all other “stuff”. This classic and clean messenger bag from Ben Sherman is a great staple for any man’s wardrobe. It will help keep them organized while looking stylish. Besides, backpacks belong in middle school. Get it Here.
8. Thallium Cologne $24.19
This cologne has the best scent I have ever smelled. It’s sexy, clean, and just…perfect. Imagine those silly AXE commercials, that’s what it is really like with this scent (BTW, never buy AXE, that stuff smells…funny). Get it Here.
9. A Sperry Top Sider Boat Shoe $64.99
A boat shoe is a such a classic shoe in menswear. The great thing about these shoes is that they are SUPER durable and comfortable. A classic tan color is the best option. They go with denim, khakis and shorts! They also can transition from Summer weather to Fall weather in a jiffy! These are a stylish alternative to a regular sneaker. Get It Here.
10. VuPoint iPhone Photo Printer $99.99
If the men in your life aren’t super into fashion, this is a great gift that is tech-savvy and sentimental. Easy to print your photos by simply using the iPod dock and basically..pressing print! Now you can add pictures to your pictures frame with the touch of a button. With similar gadgets going for over $150, this one (at $99.99) is a steal! Get It Here.
11. Creative Recreation Cesario $68
The white soled sneaker is hot, hot, hot this season. Why not get your man on trend this Christmas? These trendy kicks from Creative Recreation are under a $100, and are on my top three white soled sneakers for men. Get It Here.
12. Phillips Norelco Vacuum Beard Trimmer $40
Are you sick of your man leaving unwanted hair all over the bathroom counter? Well with this AMAZING new trimmer with an integrated vacuum system, your father, husband, brother, or boyfriend can shave and leave the bathroom, or anywhere else they choose to shave, hair and mess free! Woo hoo! Get It Here.
13. Herschel Ravine Duffel Bag $82
A gym that’s stylish? Yes, there is such a thing. Sure, men don’t mind sporting a Nike or Adidas gym bag, but those who want something that’s durable, looks stylish, and can be used for the gym, and travel, this is the perfect bag. The black bag with brown trim is stunning and so sharp. The understated look of this gym bag is what appeals to me! Get It Here.
These are just a few of my favorite gift ideas! All stylish and all under $100!
