Men’s Gift Guide 2018
Well friends: it’s that time of year again…GIFT GUIDES! I’m kicking it off strong with my MEN’S GIFT GUIDE because all us girls are currently scrambling around trying to figure out what to get our S/Os, I’m sure (or at least I am). My husband is NOTORIOUSLY difficult to shop for mainly because he asks for the same Nike shoes and Adidas sweatpants every year (no shame honey, it’s cool) so it’s nice to be able to go rogue but still know that he will love whatever I add to his gift pile. Let’s dive into this.
Men’s Gift Guide 2018
Dart boards are SO much fun – and they make a great gift your man (+ the whole family) will love. My family has always loved playing darts. It’s a great game to set up during the winter because you don’t have to go outside to play it if you live somewhere where it’s chilly this time of year. 10/10.
I am a huge fan of Herschel: they are great quality, a reputable company and their products last years. I’m still using a backpack I got 3 years ago and it looks brand new (despite using it my last hectic semester of college). Their duffle bags are no different and they come in a bunch of sizes. The Novel Duffle is a great carryon size and will fit everything your guy needs to travel.
This is a great gift because guys will rarely buy them for themselves. It’s one of those necessities they forget about. These gloves are great quality, feel soft and still let them use their phone if they need to. These are made of specialty knit, with touchscreen friendly fingertips as well as a suede palm panel to make sure they can still grip whatever their holding onto.
Check out my blog post HERE if you missed my husband and I’s adventure to Fritz’s this past September. We LOVED IT. If you are local – you don’t want to miss out on Branson’s best attraction. You can do the Aerodium, a ropes course, outdoor rock wall climbing, the ‘Downtown Fritz’ cityscape (an indoor rock wall climbing), lazer mazes, Sky Fall (the coolest free-falling experience) and more. If you are planning on going in the winter – you won’t get to experience the Aerodium because it is a seasonal offering, but if you decide to wait to go when it’s warm, it’s a GREAT attraction for people of all ages! It’s great for both kids AND adults alike. We literally can’t wait to go back. What makes a better gift than an experience?
If you want your man to smell DELICIOUS all day long – they need this cologne. I walked past this in Ulta the other day and immediately added it to my list of gifts to buy my husband because YUM. I am a sucker for when Adam smells amazing so I am always down for adding a good cologne to his Christmas gift pile.
If your guy is a camper, this is a must-have. It’s great for camping so you don’t have to lay on the ground, and it’s also great for backyard hanging. I love hammocks, so this is a fun gift that even I would enjoy with my hubby. This hammock is big enough for two people, can withstand the elements and comes in a TON of different colors.
Full disclosure: this gift is almost like a gift for me, too. 😉 I am OBSESSED with corn hole having grown up in the midwest (and if you call it “bags”, you are wrong). This is the best outdoor summer game and everyone can enjoy it. I think yard games are always a great choice for Christmas because it helps get people out of the house when warmer weather comes around. This set is well made, standard size and has great quality bags (so they won’t fall apart after one or two tosses).
This is for the meticulous groomer. I know my husband likes to spend time shaving his face and keeping it well trimmed, so this is a great gift for him. It’s definitely an investment, but the quality is there and it will last years. This is a reputable brand and it gives your guy a little bit of masculine luxury in the bathroom.
This is SUCH an easy thing to pop in a stocking. It’s $7 on amazon prime, and your man will DEFINITELY think this is a cool one. It goes in their wallet and has a multitude of uses for those just-in-case situations.
We just got one of these and LOVE it. It’s small, sits in our kitchen, and blasts all our Christmas music while we make cookies. The DREAM. It has a really sleek design that looks great on desks, in offices or the bedroom. It’s also crazy affordable. A smart speaker for less than $100? I’m in. It also sets timers, has clear speakers, can recognize different voices, shares personalized calendars, flights, payments and and default media services to each person in your household.
This is neat because how many of us get our cords all jumbled and lost when traveling? Probably everyone. This keeps your cords neatly tucked away, and easily accessible during flights or car rides. Honestly, this is a great gift for ANYONE. The light grey or charcoal color options are definitely neutral and will go well with any bag your guy owns.
Wireless headphones are the way of the future, I’m convinced of it. These headphones are the best-of-the-best for sound quality and easily pair via bluetooth to your phone. The earbud design stays put in your guy’s ears without struggle, and most importantly: they are sweat and weather resistance for reliability while exercising.
Does your S/O like to golf? These balls may be worth it, then! My hubby is just picking the sport up, but if you have a die-hard golf fan on your hands, they will love it. These particular balls are special because they combine excellent performance with an unparalleled feel and mis-hit forgiveness (according to the website…I’m no golf expert). They have a Graphene Dual SoftFast Core and a Tour Urethane cover. All in all, they’re supposed to be the best in the world of golfing!
This is a GREAT option because it’s a built in date night! Sign up for a cooking class to test your skills and learn new ones with your honey. If you are local, click the link above to see which classes are available in St. Louis right now and register! You both will walk away more confident in your cooking abilities.
I don’t know about YOUR S/Os…but….my husband is a MASK FIEND. He totally loves them, especially the charcoal ones. This one by PeterThomasRoth is a fan favorite here in the Mobley house, and we love how it feels. We even keep it in the shower for quick on-the-go masks while you are washing your hair. It’s got a moor mud base, so no girlie smells here. Very manly. 😉
