With the holidays fast approaching, finding the perfect gifts for those you love is on everyone’s mind. With my holiday shopping nearly finished I thought it would be fun to share some of the items I purchased for the men in my life and a few items I thought were especially exciting that would be on the top of my ‘must get’ list! So if you need ideas for the men in your life take a peek below!
1 There’s nothing better than opening a gift that allows you to go outside and play. Versatile coats like this Men’s Thermoball Hoodie that The North Face gifted me are incredibly useful here in Colorado where the temperature can shift forty or more degrees in a single day! This hoodie is water resistant, lightweight, and insulated so it is the perfect coat to throw into your day bag.
2 An insulated tumblr is great for both hot summer days and chilly hands in the dead of winter. I grabbed a Yeti Rambler Tumbler in Army green for my brother-in-law (who I know won’t be reading this!) who just retired from the Army. This tumbler is durable and substantial perfect for the man in your life who isn’t afraid to get his hands (and tumblers!) dirty.
3 If the men in your life are anything like mine, they love to travel but are slightly horrible at organization. So, to make their lives easier why not pick up a gorgeous toiletries bag like this Leather Dopp Kit by Rustic Town? Classy, super useful, and well-made it will make any traveler seem a bit more put together!
4 Looking for something smaller? I always love to add a few little ‘stocking stuffer’ gifts into my gift pile. I especially love toys that make you think, like this 3D Brain Teaser Wooden Puzzle. Not only is it fun to play with while you wait for your Christmas morning croissants to settle, it is a perfect but of whimsy to add to your office desk.
5 & 6 When it comes to gifts I will ALWAYS be excited about a book. While eBooks are convenient and inexpensive, I love the feel of turning the pages of physical book. Now, the genre of book is absolutely up to the man you’re looking to buy for, but I chose two books- Bush Craft 101 and How to Stay Alive in the Woods– for my brother who moved up to Alaska and my partner who is always getting into some type of mischief outdoors!
7 I LOVE anything Yoloha Yoga- something from their line of cork goodies always makes its way into all of my gift guides for men or women. This new Encompass Aura Cork Yoga Mat is both beautiful and made from sustainable materials- let’s order two, an extra for me please!
8 To be honest, I am still debating if I am actually going to give away this next gift. While surfing Amazon picking up a few necessities, this Solid Brass Sundial Compass was recommended to me and it is quite possibly the coolest little trinket that I have no idea how to use! I know my partner would love it, but stylistically it would bring some gorgeous nautical flair to my living room. Decisions, decisions!
I’d love to know, what would you like on this list or would you add something else? Let me know in the comments below! Have a wonderful holiday season shopping for your loved ones!
