What’s Inside: A cheat sheet of some of the best ” guy gifts ” for any occasion and every budget!
Why are men so difficult to shop for? Is it just me??
For all the women out there (like me!) who need ideas for that special man in their life, I put together a list of some of the best guy gifts out there! (Not only will he use them, he’ll love them!)
These gift ideas are guy-approved (my husband helped me out with this post!) and they’re perfect for just about any occasion: Valentine’s Day, Father’s Day, birthday, Christmas, etc. Bookmark it ladies!
Guy like shades (and they look hot in them!) Fun and functional, a stylish pair of sunglasses is always a winner.
My husband is notorious for breaking sunglasses, so he always buys cheapie pairs. But I think he deserves something nice, so I recently got him Ray-ban sunglasses — they make a folding version of their classic Wayfarer style. Since they fold up and come with a compact case, I figure he is less likely to break them!
Wayfarers look good on everyone, no matter their face shape. We got ours from GlassesUSA — they also have Ray-ban prescription glasses!

If your guy is a wine lover, then he’ll go crazy for Winc monthly wine delivery! (I received a gift membership for Christmas last year and it’s pretty awesome!)
To start, you fill out a quick survey about your taste preferences. Using your input, Winc creates a customized monthly delivery. It’s such a fun way to try out new wines, and they’re delivered right to your door! Even better, shipping is complimentary for orders of 4 bottles or more!

I could give my husband an Xbox gift card for every single birthday, holiday, etc. and he’ll never get tired of it! Xbox gifts cards can be redeemed for games, music, movies, apps and more.
Purchase Xbox gift cards on Amazon and get a digital code instantly — this is the perfect last-minute gift! (I usually do $50 to keep my husband busy for a while, but they have different amounts).
Apple Airpods Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds
This is a bit of a splurge, but my husband has been eyeing the brand new Apple Airpods for months! (He seriously counted down the days until their release). An updated version of Apple’s earbuds…without the cord! Perfect for working out since there’s no annoying cord to get tangled up in.
Tickets to a Sporting Event
My husband is a huge basketball fan, so tickets to see our team play are always a hit! One year we made a weekend of it — traveling to a nearby city for the championship series. It’s a trip we’ll always remember, and even as a non-basketball fanatic, I had a blast too!
Local Brewery Tour
One year I bought all the guys in the family tickets to a local brewery tour. I also included a “coupon” for my services as their designated driver. Needless to say, they enjoyed themselves!
Chef Quality Pans
For the guy who loves to cook, top-notch pans are a must. My husband’s favorites:
- Flat square griddle (perfect for cooking eggs, tacos, bacon, pancakes, and more!)
- 13″ deep skillet (the most versatile pan in our kitchen – my husband uses it almost every single day)
- Copper bottom sauté pan (what my husband uses to make his “famous” perfect salmon)
Nixon “Unit” Watch
I wish I could take credit for this idea, but my husband’s friends gifted him with an engraved Nixon Unit watch a few years ago. My husband LOVES it because it’s durable and matches everything. There are a lot of fun colors and options, but classic black is a sure bet!
I posted a close-up shot directly above so you can see the detail, but if you look in the first photo of this entire blog post, you’ll notice my husband wearing his favorite watch!
