For this gift guide I've put together things that my own husband has or wants, as well as things my other man-friends and family would love. It all may not fit the taste of your guy, but I hope you're able to get some good ideas from it.
I think men underestimate the power of good skin care. Skincare products like this kit from Kiehl's are great gifts because they're things your man needs but most likely won't buy for themselves. If you already have a guy interested in good grooming he might love a BirchBox membership to try out all new products each month.
For guys that love to travel or have to take a lot of trips for work, a weekender duffle is a must. Make sure to include this awesome book for ideas of places you can go together. And for all my fellow 'Noles, tickets to the National Championship would be a great inaugural trip for him to take.
On Paul's Christmas list this year is a new shotgun. This particular one is the same one my grandfather had (which makes it extra special) and a great all around shotgun. Of course, he's going to need this sporting jacket and a subscription to Garden & Gun - a magazine we can both enjoy.
I love that so many guys are becoming collectors. Lately, most of our guy friends have started vinyl collections and I think a Crosley turntable and a record of a classic is a great gift for any guy that loves music or just needs an opportunity to disconnect and relax after work. *You can buy vintage records online on sites like eBay & Etsy, but try and find a vintage vinyl shop in your town. Going on musical treasure hunts makes for a great date.
For the guy who has either just started his career or is already a few years in, a briefcase embossed with their monogram is a great confidence booster. You'd be surprised how much nice business pieces means to a man. Last year, I got Paul one of these ties as a celebration to "making it" in his career. His demeanor is definitely different on days he wears it into the office. He keeps talking about wanting these shoes from his days in Manhattan. Turns out guys are just like girls in that way!
Gifts for their home bar are always a win. Paul's drink of choice lately has been a gin martini and mine (when i'm not pregnant) is a gin & tonic so this handcrafted gin kit is too cool. If your guy isn't into gin, this beer brewing kit is also fun. Yes, you could just go out and buy your own, but making it is something fun you could do together, and it makes enjoying it a little more special. I think I could do a whole gift guide for the bar alone. There are just so many cool things.
*Paul also wanted me to add that fun, colored socks make great stocking stuffers.
