Every year, without a doubt, one of my most requested Gift Guides is for gift ideas for significant others, boyfriends, fianc├ęs, and husbands. Hopefully today’s gift guide, Gift Ideas for Men, will give you a few ideas for your guy!

Michael helped me put this guide together. It includes a lot of items he already has (and loves) or items that are on his wishlist!  Let’s jump into my list of gift ideas for guys!

Gift Ideas for Men

Everlane Merino Wool Sweater & Henley

Michael only shops at a handful of retailers … Everlane being one of them! Love their Merino Wool Sweater (available in 6 colors) and the easy Henley (available in 7 colors – only $35!).

Nitro Cold Brew Coffee Maker

How fun is this gift?! If your guy is into cold brew coffee, this could be a really fun gift and a fun thing to do on the weekends!

Dirty Coast Breakfast Tee

If you’re local to Louisiana, this is one of my favorite spots to shop for tees for the guys in my life! They have fun takes on iconic New Orleans landmarks, sports teams, and more!

Whiskey Cocktail Glasses

We have these glasses and use them almost every weekend! The cocktail glasses look VERY nice, which is a perk for me because I get to display them in the open cabinets in our kitchen. Michael uses these glasses mainly for old fashions. Add a nice bottle of your guy’s favorite bourbon and you’re set with a great gift!

Away Everywhere Bag

Michael and I both have this bag. If you’ve been around here even for a minute, you know that I’m a big fan of Away luggage. I have all of the sizes in their luggage, except for the Medium. I use the Everywhere Bag as my personal item when flying. It has a slit that allows you to slide the bag right onto your luggage handle so that the bag sits perfectly and securely on top of your rolling suitcase. The perfect addition to the Bigger Carry On Bag.

Pre-pandemic, Michael traveled a lot for work and this bag was a game changer for him! He used to travel with a backpack and would get so annoyed with the fact that he couldn’t sit it on top of his rolling carry-on bag without it falling off.

He now uses the Everywhere Bag as his everyday work bag. There’s lots of room and tons of different storage compartments, which makes it perfect for guys to use for work, the gym, and for travel! It’s available in lots of colors. I recommend the canvas as it’s what we have – it’s really durable and easy to wipe clean.

Away Bigger Carry On Bag

On the same Away note, if your guy is in need of an upgrade to his luggage, Away hard shell suitcases are the way to go! I recommend the Bigger Carry On Bag as it’s the perfect size to fit everything you need while still being small enough to use as a carry-on bag on all airlines. It’s available in lots of different colors as well. I promise this gift will be a HIT under the tree!

Sonos Speaker

We have two of these Sonos speakers, and Michael and I both love them! We have one in our living room and one in our kitchen. The speakers are available in black and white. I prefer the white since it blends in with our walls and decor better. They’re easy to setup and something we use on an almost daily basis!

State Ice Cube Tray

A neat, personalized gift for the cocktail lover in your life! You could add this on to the cocktail glasses mentioned above!

YETI Backpack Cooler

Every guy loves a YETI cooler! I like this particular one because it’s a backpack style. It’s a great size to carry a good amount of food and drinks, but not so big that it’s not manageable.

Bonobos Flannel Button Up & Quilted Bomber Jacket

One of Michael’s other favorite places to shop is Bonobos. Bonobos has high quality clothing pieces, and their customer service is outstanding (one of the things Michael likes the best about the brand). They have a great return policy and are always SO helpful when we go in-store or even call-in for assistance. This exact flannel is one of my favorite pieces Michael added to his closet this fall! Love the quilted bomber too!

Solo Stove

Ok, I’ve read rave reviews about the Solo Stove, and I’m really tempted to gift Michael one for Christmas especially since we’ll likely be spending lots of time at home, outdoors this winter. Its an easy way to have a “bonfire” in your backyard, especially if you live in a smaller space. No gas or propane required.

Bushnell Golf Range Finder

A recommendation straight from Michael … He has this rangefinder and has been really happy with it. If you’re unfamiliar with what this gadget does, you (your guy) can use it on the golf course to check the distance from the ball to the hole (or other landmarks on the golf course).

Titleist Golf Balls

Michael and my dad’s go-to golf balls. I never realized how many golf balls one needs to play lots of golf … If your guy golfs, he always needs more balls, trust me.

FootJoy Golf Gloves

One last golf item that Michael orders with a lot of frequency … golf gloves! This set of two is under $20.

One item that totally slipped my mind until I wrapped up this post, Allbird Sneakers! Michael has two pairs of the Tree Runners (the Kauri Marine Blue & Peppercorn) and wears them MULTIPLE times a week! They’re great because they can be worn with so many different looks. They’re great with lounge wear on the weekend and great with jeans or casual pants for nights out and even work. They’re also Michael’s favorite travel shoe because they’re really comfortable and so versatile! They run TTS.
