16 Affordable Gifts for the Most Stylish Man in Your Life
He’s the one who tips you off to the latest sneaker drops and the one who was wearing joggers long before you even had the courage to wear leggings in public. So how do you shop for someone with discerning taste—who also knows everything—and stick to a budget? We’ve got 16 ideas below and they’re all under $250.
1. George Sweater Fleece
It's less than half the price of that designer-brand one he'd been eyeing.
2. Wolverine 6“ Work Boot
Wolverine has been making leather boots since 1883. If that’s not a testament to the quality of their shoes, we’re not sure what is. This particular style provides all-day comfort and the Goodyear Welt construction allows them to be resoled so they can last him for the long haul.
3. Panasonic ARC5 5-Blade Electric Shaver
For the guy who just doesn’t have enough hours in the day, this wet-dry electric razor makes life easier with a 16-direction flexible head for a close shave and a pop-up trimmer for all-around grooming. Plus, the charging system cleans the shaving head while it powers up.
4. Mophie Power Capsule Charger
Wireless headphones are a must these days. (Be honest, your guy would never be caught dead with a cord hanging from his phone. Quell horror!) Whether he’s commuting, running or gaming, give him the gift of an all-day charge. This external battery adapts to a Fitbit Flex, Bose Bluetooth headphones, Beats by Dre and JBL Wireless Earbuds.
5. Wodstyle Canvas Backpack
He may no longer be in school, but you can still make sure that he’s schlepping his laptop to work in an appropriate fashion.
6. Hane’s Ecosmart Fleece Pullover
Orange is 2019’s take on the rust craze of 2018. And this Hane’s sweatshirt just might be so basic that it’s brilliant.
7. Casio Black Dive-Style Sport Watch
A Rolex is…well…wonderful, but there’s also something chic about a watch that’s not trying too hard. The black resin band and stainless steel case on this Casio give it a classic nondescript look, while its anti-reverse bezel adds dive functionality.
8. Dior Sauvage Cologne
One part James Bond, one part Paul Bunyan, this musky cologne is meant for a man with swagger. We know, buying fragrance is a risky move. But this is an Allure Best of Beauty Award winner, so you can hang your hat on that.
9. Crevo Chelsea Boot
Genuine suede for under $75? A shoe-in (pun intended).
10. Tile Pro with Replaceable Battery
Know a guy who has a lot to keep track of? Help him out with this handy locator that will allow him to hunt down anything from his keys to his suitcase or even a wayward aerial drone.
11. Iceburg Insulated Bomber with Faux Fur Hood
If a down jacket is on his list, look to this affordable option that doesn’t sacrifice on style or warmth. Not only is it down-filled, it’s got a fresh faux-fur collar to keep him in the fashion game.
12. Colgate Optic White Advanced LED Whitening Kit
If you’ve caught him checking his reflection on more than one occasion, feed his self-love with Colgate’s first LED whitening device. It offers a dentist-quality experience right from the comfort of your couch. The brand even says that using it for just ten minutes a day for ten days will turn teeth six shades whiter.
14. George Cardigan Knit Sweater
With a price this low, you can nab this in a few colors and let him pick his favorites.
15. Harry's Foaming Shave Gel with Aloe
This shaving cream produces a rich lather—with or without a brush—softening the beard for a close and comfortable shave. It’s the perfect way to upgrade a man’s morning ritual.
