How We Chose the Best Gifts for Men

When it came down to finding the best gifts for guys, we took our task seriously and took a few factors into account, like customer ratings and reviews: If the product didn’t have rave reviews from buyers, we didn’t include it on our list. It had to be loved by shoppers who found it useful, stylish or of great quality–and bonus points if we could hear first-hand reviews from dudes who had actually tried it.

We also considered budget, quality and an overall surprise-and-delight ability, ensuring that there was something on our list for every type of person.

Below, check out our picks for the 73 best gifts for men.

Best Overall Gift for Men

1. Vuori Ponto Performance Pant


More than 6,000 reviewers will tell you that these pants are addictively cozy and versatile, which makes them one of the best gifts on this list. Especially since he'll get the most use out of them. "[They're] so comfy and [they don't] shrink in the wash! My husband wears [them] every day after work and to the gym," one Vuori shopper shares. We love that they fit true to size, and are as good as pajamas as they are as run-to-the-store pants.

Best Last-Minute Gift for Men

2. Masterclass Subscription


If he's a jack of all trades, he'll be excited about this online platform that will provide him with access to more than a hundred virtual classes and sessions led by industry professionals in various fields, from songwriting to gardening. Think: Intentional Eating with Michael Pollan or Film Scoring with Hans Zimmer. Your guy can go at his own pace, watch classes on his computer or mobile device and even interact with the MasterClass community. He might not get a certificate at the end, but it's an ideal gift for someone looking to expand their knowledge or skills. And since you purchase online, you can buy this one mere minutes before giving to him.

Best Gadget Gift for Men

3. Theragun Prime


Upgrade his recovery efforts with Theragun’s muscle massager. Its percussive movements get deep into the muscles to ease tightness and discomfort, all with the help of a super-quiet, rechargeable battery. It also has multiple speed ranges and head attachments for a totally customizable massage. Your guy will be so grateful, he just might let you take it for a spin yourself.

Best Gift for the Cozy Guy

4. Abrecrombie & Fitch Gender Inclusive Essential Crew Sweatshirt

Abercrombie & Fitch

We’re willing to bet there isn’t a single person on your list that wouldn’t appreciate a cozy new cashmere sweater. We’re also willing to bet your bank account will appreciate you paying $60 for this high-quality, relaxed fit crew from Abrecrombie & Fitch.

Best Gift for the Guy Learning How to Cook

5. Thermapen One Instant-Read Thermometer


They’ll never have to play the “is this steak done?” guessing game again, thanks to this easy-to-use meat thermometer. This is particularly handy for guys who are just getting into cooking or who are utilizing ovens with unreliable temperature settings. All he has to do is gently stick the probe in and wait one second for the reading to come back (don’t worry about accuracy, either—ThermoWorks prides itself on being spot-on within 0.5 degrees Fahrenheit). There’s a five-year warranty and it comes with a waterproof case for safe-keeping.

He’s never had his own fragrance, so help him find his go-to scent with this handy discovery sampler set from Macy’s. He’ll receive a myriad of tester colognes from a ton of top-tier brands, like Burberry, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren and Cartier. Regardless of whether he’s interested in warm, musky aromas or something clean and citrusy, he’ll find something that floats his boat, and hopefully yours too.

Best Food Gift

7. ButcherBox Subscription


Support his grilling obsession by gifting him a ButcherBox subscription. He'll receive a box in the mail containing pork, chicken and steak from top-tier partners worldwide every month, giving him an excuse to get the grill up and running. If you opt for a subscription, you can choose to create your own box or pick from the curated ones (mixed, beef and chicken or pork and chicken).

Best Gift for the Serious Chef

8. Hestan Titanium Essential Pan


If he’s gotten seriously into cooking since binge watching The Bear, you can buy him this essential pan from top-notch brand Hestan. There’s a ton to love about this skillet-slash-sauté pan—namely, it’s 100% nontoxic, high heat tolerant (up to 1,050 degrees Fahrenheit), induction compatible, and dishwasher-safe. It costs a pretty penny, but he’ll also receive a lifetime warranty, so it’ll definitely last him long-term.

Best Gift for the Amateaur Dresser

9. Stitch Fix for Men


Our top pick for fashion subscription boxes for men, a Stitch Fix box is an awesome way to help him find his way in the style world. Whether he’s always favored comfy athleisure fits or polished, timeless pieces, he can take the style quiz, connect with a professional stylist and voila! He’ll receive five pieces (think everything from pants and shoes to sweaters and tees) in a tailored box just for him. Best of all, he can decide what he wants to keep or give back, with free returns accepted within 30 days of receiving his box.

Best Gift for Men Who Travel

10. J.Crew Waxed Canvas Duffel Bag


Maybe he’s always on the go for work or you two are in a long distance relationship—whatever his reason for frequent travel, this duffel bag from J.Crew will make his packing process a breeze. It has a handle and an adjustable crossbody strap, while the large capacity has enough room to pack a few outfits for the weekend.

Best Gift for the Bookworm

11. Juniper Books Kurt Vonnegut Set

Juniper Books

It can be tricky to gift a book to an avid reader. But giving your guy a collector’s edition of their all-time favorites is bound to make them smile. Juniper Books has a variety of author sets to choose from–think Ernest Hemingway, Toni Morrison and Jane Austen, as well as multiple cover designs. You can even make a custom book cover with his name or a clever message.

Best Gift for the Dog Dad

12. UncommonGoods Personalized Dog Blueprints

Uncommon Goods

He already knows his pet is made of sugar and spice and everything nice (with a hefty helping of treats), but it doesn’t hurt to hang a custom reminder on the wall for all to see. This custom print lets you add in all those unique details that make his pup truly special. Ordering it is super simple, too—just select the breed from the dropdown menu (there’s tons of options, ranging from Australian Cattle Dog to Whoodle), enter his furry friend’s name and select the gender. Take it from one happy buyer: “An amazing piece of work that my husband absolutely loves.”

Best Gift for the Grill Master

13. Everdure CUBE Portable Charcoal Grill


We love how compact this thing is, not to mention that it comes with a bamboo prep board and a food storage tray that can stack on top of the grill when it’s not in use. The grill itself is 115-square inches big and, according to the brand, is big enough to fit six small burgers or three medium steaks.

Best Fashion Gift for Men

14. Timex Easy Reader 38mm Leather Strap Watch


A watch is a great gift for any guy in your life. We’re big fans of this Timex Easy Reader because of the durable leather, as well as its classic look that will match nearly any outfit he throws on. As a bonus, the watch face even lights up, so he can easily check the time when he’s sitting through yet another watch of Barbie.

Best Gift for the Guy Who Loves Baking

15. JK Adams Baking Board

JK Adams

If he’s particularly fond of making pastry and other doughy goods, the measurements on this board will make the rolling out process that much easier. There are circles located in the middle outlining some of the most popular pie sizes (it goes from 5- to 14-inches), along with handy measurements on the bottom and left hand side. We’re also huge fans of the built-in lip that’s designed to keep his rolling pin in place. Bonus: When he flips it over, he’s got a sturdy cutting board perfect for chopping all his delicious fillings.

Best Gift for the Disorganized Golfer

16. UncommonGoods Golfer’s Portable Organizer

Uncommon Goods

He loves to golf his heart out on the green, but if he stuffs any other items in his pants pockets, he may fall over. Enter: This handy organizer that can hold all of his essentials, plus, it comes with a magnetic ball marker, a divot tool, a mini marker pen and a pocket line marker. About as big as a mid-size wallet, it’s easy to take on the go.

Best Gift for the Outdoorsy Dude

17. UncommonGoods National Park Site Scratch Off Bucket List Cards

Uncommon Goods

If he’s on a quest to visit national parks throughout the US, this set of scratch off cards is perfect. Each card comes with 10 scratch off areas of lakes, trails, peaks and other attractions, which he can mark accordingly every time he visits one. It not only serves as a great souvenir and memory, but it’s handy for giving him ideas to do when he’s visiting.

Best Gift for the Guy Who’s Still Working from Home

18. Sony WH-CH720N Noise Canceling Wireless Headphones


In the event that he’s somehow made it this far into working from home without a solid pair of noise canceling headphones, we recommend snagging him these beauties from Sony. They boast a super handy ambient sound setting that automatically swaps from 20 different listening modes depending on his location (for instance, if he’s sitting, it’ll switch to noise canceling, but if he goes for a walk, it may change to allow in background noise). As a major bonus, three minutes of charging will give him an hour of playback time (!) and one full charge can offer up to 35 hours.

Even if he thinks he’s explored every nook and cranny of America, we guarantee he’ll find something new to learn, see or do in this extensive activity book overviewing 45 trips from Reader's Digest. We like that it’s broken up by travel region and includes information about driving length, rest stops, nearby attractions and more.

Best Gift for the Comfy Dresser

20. Birkenstock Boston Soft Clogs


The Birkenstock Boston Soft Clogs are a mainstay for millennials and Gen Z guys. If he’s been eyeing them on TikTok, save him the effort by gifting him these über comfy kicks. They feature a suede-lined cork footbed with contouring and arch support, making them an upgraded version of the slippers he wears at home.

Best Gift for the Nautical Fashionista

21. Sperry Men’s Authentic Original Boat Shoe


Pick between six leather hues for these classic Sperry Original Boat Shoes which boast a 360-degree lacing system, meaning he can tie them to fit his foot perfectly. We also love the handsewn detailing, and the high-quality construction of leather is well worth the cash. Sizes range from 4 to 16, with width options available in small, medium, wide and extra wide.

Best Gift for the Man Who Likes to Work with His Hands

22. The Crafter’s Box Workshop


As recommended by PureWow editors, this monthly virtual artist workshop sends you all the materials you need ahead of time then guides you through each project step by step. There’s abstract oil painting, basket weaving, leather work and a variety of other crafty endeavors. You can also purchase a one-off class if you know he has a specific skill in mind. The subscription models include Crafter’s Community (a digital membership best fit for crafters looking for community), Crafter’s Box (a monthly box where he’ll receive supplies for a new craft) and 2-in-1, which is a combo of both.

Best Gift for the Game Night Host

23. Sushi Go! Card Game

Gamewright Store

Meant for two to five people, players must pull various sushi treats off the conveyor belt (aka, passing of cards) to build a high-scoring meal that’s as adorable as it is delicious. The goal is to build the best combination of sushi by making the most maki rolls or collecting a full set of sashimi. (Yum!) It’s a great add-on to the weekly game night he hosts—just be warned, you might find yourself craving a spicy tuna roll post-win.

Best Gift for the Guy in College

24. Loop Experience Ear Plugs


Whether he has noisy neighbors or simply likes to work in silence, the Loop Experience Ear Plugs are a step above your run-of-the-mill plugs. They have rave reviews from customers, but our favorite feature is that he’ll still be able to hear everything, just not as loudly. Plus, each set comes with four sizes of silicone tips (XS to L) so he can pick the ones that fit his ears the best.

Best Gift for the Runner

25. lululemon Pace Breaker Lined Short


Even if he’s not actively training for a big race, lululemon’s Pace Breaker Lined Shorts are a top-tier addition to his collection of activewear. We love that there’s a large size variety (from XS to XXXL) along with three different inseam options (5-, 7- or 9-inches). The lightweight fabric won’t hold him up and the inner mesh material is sweat-wicking and quick drying.

Best Gift for the Commuter

26. Mark & Graham Leather Charger Roll Up

Mark & Graham

Help him keep all his cords—for his laptop, tablet, phone, GPS watch, headphones and who knows what else—organized and easy to grab with this handy roll-up case. It’s made of super-soft leather and can even be embossed with his initials for a personalized touch. There’s also a larger size available if the smaller one doesn’t suffice.

Best Gift for the Pet Parent

27. Crown & Paw Custom Knitted Pet Face Sweater

Crown & Paw

He’s the proudest pet papa you know, so why not gift him this seriously adorable custom knitted pet face sweater? You can choose between having his pet’s face or full body on the sweatshirt, along with including their name. Although it takes around three weeks for it to be delivered, you get a 72-hour window to approve the design before it goes to print.

Best Gift for the Outdoorsman

28. The Landmark Project National Park Type Tee

The Landmark Project

Available in sizes from XS to XXXL in two colors (Canyon or Deep Navy), this National Parks tee is a fun way for him to show off how much he loves the great outdoors. The front features a minimal logo, while the back has the names of all 63 parks sprawled across the fabric.

Best Accessory Gift for Men

29. Carhartt Men’s Knit Cuffed Beanie


Keep his noggin nice and warm this winter with the classic Carhartt Knit Cuffed Beanie, made from 100% acrylic and complete with the brand’s logo on the front. It has a 4.8-star rating from more than 151,1700 reviewers (!), with one happy buyer dubbing it the “best beanie.” Just note that it’s hand-wash only and throwing it in the dryer will definitely cause it to shrink.

Best Gift for the Homebody

30. Nordstorm Bliss Plush Throw Blanket


He’ll claim he’s just “resting his eyes,” but as soon as he throws this plushy throw blanket in the mix, he’ll be snoozing through Sunday football. In fact, PureWow writer Melissa Lee owns and adores this super soft blanket—she says she’s always cuddling with it on the couch, and she was seriously impressed with the quality considering the affordable price point.

Best Gift for the Serious Golfer

31. Mark & Graham Personalized Golf Ball Gift Set

Mark & Graham

This set of personalized golf balls can be monogrammed with his initials, and has everything he needs to hit the green: 12 custom golf balls, 12 golf tees and 12 golf pencils, all of which are neatly packed in a wooden box that can be personalized too.

Best Gift for the Cozy Dude

32. UGG Classic Scuff Slipper


Lazy days will be permanently transformed with the highly rated UGG Classic Scuff Slippers. The wool blend and shearling interior will have his tootsies in heaven, and you can pick from six color options with sizes ranging from 7 to 15. Just note that since there aren’t any half sizes available, the brand recommends sizing up if he’s somewhere in between.

Best Sentimental Gift

33. Uncommon Goods Personalized Platinum & Gold LP Record

Uncommon Goods

He already has a massive collection of records, but we can guarantee he doesn’t own this one yet. This personalized LP record is a cute and unique anniversary, birthday or just-because-I-love-you gift. Pick between a platinum or gold record on either a black mat or in a floating frame, personalize the title (say, “Joy and Mark Forever’) and pick up to five special songs to include. Need further proof? A whopping 100% of Uncommon Goods buyers would recommend this gift to a friend.

Best Gift for the Football Food Fan

34. Omaha Steaks Gameday Favorites Pack

Omaha Steaks

This game day favorite pack from Omaha Steaks is perfect for afternoons spent in front of the TV, especially because it comes with a variety of different meals and meats. He’ll get fully cooked chicken wings, mini lobster grilled cheese, beer-battered shrimp, cheesesteak flatbread, gourmet franks in a blanket and fully cooked beef meatballs.

Best Gift for the Nighttime Reader

35. A House With Good Bones by T. Kingfisher


If he loves dark, gothic, can’t put-it-down thrillers, this new page-turner from award-winning novelist T. Kingfisher should be right up his alley. It centers on a young woman uncovering mysteries hidden in her mother’s home, and accidentally finding some spooky secrets along the way. According to The New York Times, “You will gulp this book down like sweet tea on a hot day.”

Best Gift for the Beard Obsessed

36. Braun Electric Razor


If he won’t stop complaining about how he needs a new electric razor, just go on and buy him one already. This is one of the most highly rated options on Amazon, with tons of reviewers commenting on the 360-degree rotating head which allows for a closer shave with fewer passes and no weird arm twisting to find the right angle.

Best Birthday Gift for Men

37. New York Times Custom Birthday Book

Uncommon Goods

We love the idea of giving him this custom birthday book that features New York Times front pages from 20 years of his life. You can choose any date (it doesn’t have to be the day he was born) and he’s guaranteed to have a blast looking through current events over the years. It’ll serve as a special reminder when he places it on his coffee table, bookshelf or nightstand.

Best Gift for Men Under $50

38. Hydro Flask 12 Ounce Mug

Hydro Flask

Hydro Flask is already known for its array of top-quality water bottles (trust us—we’re big fans here at PureWow), and the 12-ounce reusable mug is certainly no exception. The brand’s TempShield insulating technology ensures that his coffee or tea will stay warm all morning long. It’s also up for grabs in a ton of fun colors and is 100% nontoxic and BPA-free.

Best Christmas Gift for Men

39. Chrome Industries Ruckas 14L Backpack

Chrome Industries

Regardless of whether he needs a new carry-on bag for travel or he just has a daily commute, the Chrome Industries Ruckas 14L Backpack is a great buy. The recycled material is lightweight while still managing to hold a ton of stuff. We like that it has an expandable pocket for his water bottle, while the ergonomic shoulder straps will take the strain off his back when he’s catching a train, plane or cab. Want to make this holiday season extra special? Fill it with stocking stuffers.

Best Gift for the Dude Who Loves to Jam

40. JBL FLIP 5 Portable Bluetooth Speaker


If he needs to upgrade from playing music on his phone to a speaker, we recommend this Bluetooth option from JBL. It’s waterproof (making it a particularly good pick for the summer months when he’s attending pool parties galore) and boasts excellent Bluetooth connectivity via his smart phone, tablet or any other Bluetooth-enabled device. PureWow Editor-in-Chief Jillian Quint uses hers every day in her kitchen for catching up on the news or streaming tunes.

Best Gift for The Guy Who Loves a Fire

41. REI Fireside Outdoor Pop-Up Fire Pit

Fireside Outdoor

He loves spending his Sundays kicking back in the chilly autumn weather, which means this outdoor pop-up fire pit from REI will be an awesome addition to his collection of gear. The lightweight design ensures that it’s super portable, while the fire mesh technology pledges to output 80% less smoke than your average fire. Other highlights include the heat shield, which makes sure he won’t damage any ground underneath the pit, and the weather-resistant carrying bag.

Best Gift for Athletes

42. Bombas Men’s Running Ankle Sock 6-Pack


Bombas, a brand originally featured on Shark Tank, has become known for its wide array of ultra cozy socks that give back. While on the costly side, this 6-pack of running ankle socks is built for movement thanks to the breathable and moisture-wicking fabric. We also love that these puppies really hold up after months (or years) of use, and that Bombas will donate six pairs of socks in exchange for your 6-pack purchase.

Best Gift for the Guy Who Just Moved into His Own Apartment

43. Global Chef’s Knife with Custom Engraving


A proper chef’s knife is perhaps the most essential kitchen item for cooks of all levels (yes, even an amateur). We love that the alloy steel blade is made to handle all types of chopping and cutting, and it’s even more resistant to rusting and wear and tear than carbon steel. And, since a chef’s knife is one of the most versatile options to have (it can conquer fruits, veggies and meats), it’s the perfect pick if he’s in the early stages of stocking his kitchen.

Best Cheap Gift for Men

44. Uncommon Goods College Cityscape Tea Towel

Uncommon Goods

On a budget this year? No problem. This college cityscape tea towel from Uncommon Goods is a cute and affordable gift, especially if you met in college or he’s still repping his school on the regular. (Options range from Syracuse University to Mississippi State.) Each towel has a printed design of the college campus and its name, along with a sewn-in loop for convenient display (because you know he’s going to want to show it off).

Best Gift for the Strategic Gamer

45. Catan


With a 4.8-star rating from more than 34,600 Amazon shoppers, Catan is probably already on his radar. But if he hasn’t played it yet, go ahead and get him started, with this popular board game, which is all about out-strategizing your competitors to cannily take over a fictitious land. Use resources, build roads and cities and cut off your enemy’s roads to win. In the words of a happy buyer, “this game is different each time, making it extremely enjoyable and something I look forward to on game night."

Best Gift for the Man Who’s Run Out of Room on His Bookshelf

46. Kindle


Perfect for travel or those low on extra space, e-readers are lightweight, easy to use and can even link to his library card. This Kindle model is small enough to fit in a work bag or backpack and can run for up to six weeks on a single charge. (BTW: If he’s already got a Kindle, consider gifting him an Amazon gift card, so he can restock his digital library.)

Best Stress-Relief Gift

47. Snailax Shiatsu Massage Cushion


We’re obsessed with this home shiatsu massage cushion that features four massage modes with super soothing heat therapy. He can strap it on to his office chair or ottoman for optimal relaxation, switching between upper back, lower back or full back nodes. He can also choose the intensity of the vibrations or even use the spot massage node to get into those pesky aches he’s been dealing with.

Best Gift for the Proud Papa

48. Uncommon Goods My Favorite Things Four-Across Game

Uncommon Goods

Whether he’s a new dad or seasoned pops, he’ll want to show off this custom four-across game to anyone who comes over. You can personalize the shapes of the cutouts including four different icons, letters and numbers. Similar to Connect 4, you can win this game by getting four in a row of your color. 

Take it from one happy customer: “My wife proudly has this on a shelf in our living room for all to see! Sometimes we grab it and have a game too!”

Best Gift for the Low Maintenance Guy

49. Fossil Ingram Leather Magnetic Multicard Wallet


He’s been using his current wallet since college and it’s falling apart. (Seriously, how does he keep anything in there?) This multicard wallet from Fossil will serve as a big upgrade, considering it’s made from smooth leather, can be monogrammed and has a magnetic money clip, a side pocket and three card slots.

Best Tech Gift for Men

50. Samsung Galaxy Watch 5


The Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 is a handy combination of classic smartwatch and modern fitness tracker. It has cool features like sleep tracking, auto workout training, GPS and up to 16 gigabytes of memory. We also like that you can choose the color scheme to best match his aesthetic, ranging from navy and mustard to standard black. (Just note that if he wants to use it on LTE he’ll have to add it to his cell phone plan.)

Best Gift for the Perpetually Prepared

51. Gravel Blue Layover Travel Blanket


Is he a frequent flyer? Long haul road tripper? Camper? Disaster prepper? Netflix binger? We’re seriously obsessed with this insulated lightweight blanket, which folds up to be as small as an orange, and is the durable snuggly accompaniment to all of these pursuits. It even has a 4.9-star rating from more than 560 customers.

Best Gift for the Caffeine Addict

52. Atlas Coffee Club Subscription

Atlas Coffee Club

If he didn’t appreciate his daily caffeine fix before, he definitely will now, thanks to a wide selection of beans, which you can order whole or pre-ground for his preferred brew method. We like that you can choose between 3-, 6- or 12-month long subscriptions and opt for 1, 1.5 or 2 bags per shipment.

Best Gift for the Casual Dresser

53. AYR The BLT Sweatshirt


The BLT sweatshirt is supremely cozy, but is professional enough to wear to the office or even out for date night. Plus, there are two hidden pockets since, who doesn’t love pockets?. Don’t take our word for it, though—one recent shopper described this crewneck as being “the best,” saying that it “feels like being surrounded by love.” I think we’ll be adding one for ourselves, too.

Best Athlesiure GIft

54. adidas ALL SZN Garment-Wash Hoodie


If the AYR BLT Sweatshirt exceeds your budget, we also love this garment-wash hoodie from adidas. It has a loose fit and is up for grabs in three fun colors (Arctic Fusion, an acid wash black and Silver Green). Sizes are available from 2XS to 2XL, and the kangaroo pocket is perfect for storing his phone and wallet while he runs errands.

Best Retirement Gift for Men

55. Hoverphenix Pickleball Set


He’s finally done with his time in the workforce, and wouldn’t you know it, he’s got his eye on a new hobby: Pickleball! Snag him this pickleball set that has everything he’ll need to get started, including a net, four paddles, four balls and a storage bag. Whether he decides to play in the backyard or adventure out to a court, he’ll be set (especially since it includes an instruction booklet). Just make sure you come over every now and then for a one-on-one game.

Best Gift for the Guy Who Hates Shopping for Himself

56. Abercrombie & Fitch Men’s 5-Pack Essential Tees

Abercrombie & Fitch

He drags his feet whenever he needs to pick up a new pair of jeans or sneakers, so take the guesswork out of investing in basics with this 5-pack of essential tees from Abercrombie & Fitch. The relaxed fit is made from 100% cotton (so expect slight shrinkage after washing) and includes neutral colors, including white, black and different shades of brown.

Best Liquor Gift for Men

57. Spirited Gifts Custom Jameson Bottle

Spirited Gifts

Personalize the label of this classic bottle of Jameson with his name or a reminder of how much you appreciate his fatherly advice. Just note that you’ll want to make sure alcohol can be shipped to your state prior to checking out.

Best Gift For Pizza Lovers

58. Ooni Koda Pizza Oven


At-home pizza ovens are all the rage, and this one from Ooni has great reviews from buyers who describe it as a “great portable pizza oven,” noting that it heats up quickly and is easy to use. We like that it doesn’t just cook pizzas, but can also be used for flame-cooked steaks, fish and veggies. It takes around 20 minutes to heat up once you flick the gas on and you can use the handy dial to control the temperature.

Best Self-Care Gift for Men

59. Manscaped The Beard Hedger Pro Kit


He’s never had the best grooming setup, but this Manscaped gift set is the answer to his needs. He’ll receive one of the brand’s electric shavers, The Beard Hedger, an AC adapter and USB-C cable, beard shampoo, conditioner, oil and balm, along with a travel bag for easy storage. (This buy also comes with a free gift of a beard brush, comb and scissors.) It may take him some time to get comfortable with a self-care routine, but he’ll never go back after experiencing this collection of luxurious products.

Best Luxury Gift for Men

60. Baccarat Dallas Assorted Double Old-Fashioned Glasses


For high rollers who love a nightcap, this set of crystal double glasses is a can’t-miss. They’re each individually and uniquely constructed with lovely cut detailing and boast a 12-ounce capacity. Even if he doesn’t drink a ton of alcohol, he can enjoy his morning juice or an iced espresso shot in them. We agree with one recent shopper, who wrote that they’re simply “gorgeous glasses.”

Best Gift for Your New Husband

61. Uncommon Goods Wedding Waltz Personalized Art

Uncommon Goods

Just got married a few months ago and still riding the newlywed high? You can keep the good vibes going with this personalized art dedicated to commemorating your big day. The beautiful design highlights your names, wedding date, venue and city, and we’re big fans of being able to change the skin tone, hair color and font color. Just note that it’ll take around 3 weeks to ship after receiving the proofs of your print.

Most Unique Gifts for Men

62. Customized Wooden Cutting Board


He probably has every drawing his grandkids have ever made tacked up on the fridge, so immortalize his favorite by purchasing this customized wooden cutting board. You can, of course, choose the sample font, but we’re definitely suckers for the sweet idea of giving him something the kiddos drew just for him. Whether he’s a brand new grandpa or has grandkids upon great-grandkids, we know he’ll tear up the second he unwraps it.

Best Gift for a Young Man

63. Sundpey Home Tool Kit


Maybe he just moved into his first apartment or he’s still making the trek through college— regardless, everyone should own a reliable tool kit, and this 148-piece set is a great option. He’ll receive everything from an adjustable wrench to a slotted screwdriver set, all in a sturdy hard-shell case.

Best Gift for the Guy Who Could Use More Style

64. Ray-Ban 50mm Polarized Round Sunglasses

Ray Ban

Ray-Ban sunglasses are some of the best in the game—they go with everything, have a hip vibe but aren’t so fashionable that he’ll feel self-conscious. These puppies boast 100% UV protection and feature adjustable nose pads, and one PureWow husband we recently spoke to called them, “the best sunglasses I’ve ever owned. I love how they feel sturdy and cool, without feeling precious or like something that won’t go with my schlubbier clothing.”

Best Gift for the New Dad

65. Custom Embroidered Sweatshirt


He’s still riding the high of being a brand new dad and we couldn’t be prouder. Snag him this totally adorable embroidered sweatshirt with the word DAD across the chest. You can choose the color combo and add his kiddo’s name on the sleeve with a heart, so he gets to show off everywhere he goes. (And we know he will.)

Best Gift Basket for Men

66. BroBasket IPA Gift Basket


Every time you guys grab lunch, he orders an IPA, so naturally you had to get him this gift basket, which gets him four different craft beers from beloved brands like Lagunitas and Union Jack, along with a ton of other snacks and fun add-ons, like a bottle opener, a pint glass and beer koozies. FYI: Not all states accept alcohol shipments, so make sure it can be shipped to your location before checking out.

Best Gift for the Life of the Party

67. Fujifilm QuickSnap Disposable Camera Pack


He’s recently rediscovered the magic of disposable cameras, so nab him this three-pack of Fujifilm to keep the hobby going. (We’re big fans of these cameras since the flash can be continuously recharged, and it’s easier than remembering to constantly turn it back on.) Although it’s a bit pricey for just three cameras, he’ll be thrilled that he doesn’t have to stock up for a while and can snap away at his next party.

Best Gift for the Hardcore Tailgater

68. YETI Hopper Flip 12 Personal Cooler


Tailgating has always been a serious pastime for him, so it only makes sense that he should have a YETI cooler to store his favorite beverages. This model is one of their best, thanks to leak proof construction, durable zipper and sturdy insulation. Even in the event that a bottle accidentally cracks open inside, it’s a breeze to clean—all he has to do is use mild dish soap and warm water with a washcloth.

Best Gift for the Coffee Snob

69. COSORI Pour Over Coffee Maker


If he always gets pour-over at his local coffee shop, save him some dough by giving him the highly-rated COSORI Pour Over Coffee Maker. It has a double layer filter that’s designed to create a fuller cup of coffee, while the glass itself is heat-resistant and can be placed over a low flame. 

Best Gift for the City Explorer

70. UO Corduroy Mini Messenger Bag

Urban Outfitters

We love the UO Corduroy Mini Messenger Bag for its trendy look and functionality, but we’re not the only ones: It currently has a 4.8-star rating from more than 70 buyers. One reviewer wrote that it “works off the shoulder or cross-body, [and] the corduroy is very nice.” He can toss his house keys into the front pocket and his phone, wallet and whatever else he needs in the larger one.

Best Gift for the New Homeowner

71. Entertainer’s Cheese Knife Set

Uncommon Goods

Regardless of whether he breaks it out for guests or just uses it for a midnight snack, he’ll be a big fan of this set of cheese knives, which comes with four, including a bell knife, a cheese fork, a blade knife and chisel knife. Don’t know what those are? Don’t worry, the packaging has an in-depth guide detailing what they do and what cheeses he can use them with.

Best Gift for Your BFF

72. MarJunSep Funny Socks for Men


“I don’t need another pair of silly socks,” said no one, ever. He’s your best friend, which automatically makes him 10 times harder to shop for, so nab him these calf-length socks with fun faces on them. If you’re lucky, he’ll send you OOTD pictures whenever he wears them.

Best Gift for the Live Music Lover

73. Travel Stub Diary

Uncommon Goods

If he’s a frequent concert attendee, this travel stub diary is a great way for him to remember all the fun shows he attends. The 16-page book features large, clear slips, into which he can stick tickets, playbills, small photos, bar tabs…you name it. It has a solid 4.24-star rating from more than 220 buyers, with memorabilia fans noting that it’s awesome for keeping track of nights that might otherwise be lost to time. One customer wrote that they love the different sized pouches, meaning there’s a spot for items both small and large.
