Whether it’s your S.O., your dad or your nephew, picking out gifts for guys can get tough. (Wait, do they already have that game? Are they into novelty socks? Is iTunes even a thing anymore?!) But we refuse to resort to patterned ties or restaurant gift cards (again). Instead, here are 14 really smart gift ideas that any of the men in your life will love.
14 Gift Ideas to Cover All the Men in Your Life
1. F.o.g. Camel Top Coat
He has his go-to puffer jacket, but that’s about the extent of his outerwear collection. Gift him an expensive-looking camel coat that’ll allow him some options when it comes to winter dressing. This one—a wool-blend, fully lined single-breasted coat with three tortoiseshell buttons—is as dapper as they come.
2. Burberry Touch Cologne
Give him a gift you can both enjoy with this fresh-smelling citrus, spice and floral-infused cologne from Burberry. Equal parts warm and musky, he’ll finally have a signature scent (and maybe even stop using your deodorant...though, no promises).
3. George Flannel Plaid Button-down
This 100 percent cotton button-down is a comfortable, breathable (and bonus: machine washable) addition to his usual long-sleeve rotation, but in a red and black plaid that he can dress up or down.
4. Ifly Luggage Set
His old college-emblazoned duffel bag just isn’t cutting it for all those reunions, work trips and vacations abroad. Instead, gift him a hard-sided set like this one that’s made of super lightweight Fibertech and includes one medium and one large carry-on. They have 360-degree wheels and a full lining with inner pockets and elastic straps for easy organization.
5. George Reversible Pullover
We’re not going to wax poetic about a simple quarter-button pullover...except that it’s under $20 and reversible (aka BOGO).
6. Alpine Swiss Ski Gloves
For the outdoorsman, these sturdy waterproof, windproof and moisture-wicking gloves use a patented Thinsulate material over their fleece lining for added warmth and movement.
7. Cathy's Concepts Waxed Canvas Dopp Kit
You’ve known him too long to continue letting him use a Ziploc bag for his toothbrush and toothpaste. Make sure he travels everywhere in style (or at least like a proper adult) with this faux-leather and waxed canvas toiletry bag that easily fits in a backpack or duffel bag. Bonus: You can even get it monogrammed right on the site.
8. Platinum Hanger Credit Card Holder
With an interior money clip, three card slots with pull tabs for easy access, an ID window and built-in RFID blockers (identity theft protection from illicit credit card skimming technology), this super-slim carrier fits his minimalist tastes while still toting all his essentials.
9. Harry’s Shave Set
This adorably packaged shave set comes with everything he needs to keep his facial scruff in check: a razor and blade, a travel cap, a mini bottle of Harry’s Post-Shave Balm and a bottle of Harry’s Shave Gel. Plus, with a box this handsome, do you even need to wrap it?
10. Genuine Dickies Canvas Shirt Jacket
He may not be an early trend adopter, but that doesn’t mean he can’t appreciate the warmth of the sherpa lining on the hood of this canvas jacket. Little does he know he’s also totally on board with the latest cold-weather styles.
11. Gucci Cologne
Admit it: Your dude has been using the little fragrance samples he got from your trip to Sephora since May. Gift him a good scent—like Gucci by Gucci Eau de Toilette, which smells woodsy with hints of bergamot, vanilla and amber—that he can add to his permanent routine.
13. Fruit Of The Loom Plaid Joggers
He’ll love the soft waffle knit, and you’ll love not having to look at his worn-out sweatpants and threadbare undershirt. (*Shudders*)
14. No Boundaries Tokyo Sweatshirt
Whether he’s looking to up his graphic sweatshirt game or just unironically loves wearing his vacation destination on his sleeve, this cozy crewneck cotton shirt is an easy gift for the dude who’s got everything (and has probably been everywhere).
