Why are men’s gifts so hard to find? Without a doubt, the most difficult person in my life to get gifts for is Mr. Og. Whether it’s Christmas, Valentine’s Day (which is almost upon us!), or our anniversary, it never gets easier.

Part of the reason is because he never wants anything specific, and he always says, “I just don’t NEED anything.” Or he suggests things like socks, boxer briefs, and of course, a pair of Jordan’s.

 



It takes a lot to think of great gifts that will blow his mind. Sometimes I succeed, and other times I fail miserably.

I imagine many of you Broads feel the same way when it comes to men’s gifts. So I’m gonna help you out, and suggest some amazing and unique gifts for him. These range in price from just a few dollars to a significant investment. You are sure to find something that fits your budget and, MOST IMPORTANTLY, that will absolutely knock the socks off your mister!

 

Without further adieu, let’s dive in right in!

 

1. Viking Drinking Horn

 

 

 

This is an amazing gift for a manly man. I mean, does it get more manly than Vikings???

What’s great is that this is made from 100% natural buffalo horn, and it’s been polished and sealed to keep it gorgeous and to prevent leaks. It can hold a pint of beer, and it also comes with a lovely stand for displaying.

It’s $49.99. Get it here.

 

 

2. Stuff Every Man Should Know by Brett Cohen

 

 

 

I got this little book for Mr. Og a couple of years ago. It’s great! It’s a perfect bathroom reader, and it’s not just a joke, either.

The information contained in this tiny book is actually valuable. For example, it’ll tell your guy how to cast a fishing rod, get a raise, make a perfect martini, give a great massage and more!

It’s also only $8.45! Whoop whoop! Get it here.

 

 

3. A wallet with RFID blocking for extra security

 

 

Every guy needs a wallet. It’s just one of those things that wears out and needs to be replaced every year or two.

Nowadays, you can get men’s wallets with RFID blocking so assholes can’t steal your credit or debit card information. This wallet is great because it not only has the extra security, but it also has a fantastic minimalist design. I love this striking blue finish, but there are a ton of colors to choose from. It includes a money clip too!

Extra props for being under $20, at only $16.99!! Get it here.

 

 

4. Fossil Q Marshal Gen 2 Smoke Stainless Steel Touchscreen Smartwatch

 

These next three suggestions are all types of watches, but each is unique for certain types of guys.

For the tech lover who also likes classy looking accessories, this first one is perfect! We’ve seen Apple watches. They are wicked convenient and all, but hella ugly!

This Fossil Q Marshal Gen 2 Smoke Stainless Steel Touchscreen Smartwatch has amazing features!  It has a touch screen, full fitness integration, music control, and more.

Plus, you can get it for under $300! Buy it here.

 

If you want a classy and trendy watch, but don’t want to spend a few hundred dollars, check this out….

 

 

5. Wood Watch

 

 

 

These wood watches are a new trend, and Mr. Og is totally digging them. I have to say, they are just gorgeous!

Bewell makes a great quality wood watch, from natural material. It is non-toxic and hypo-allergenic. The hands are luminized as well, so you can still see the time in the dark. It also has a 36 month battery life, and is water resistant to 30 meters.

You seriously can’t beat the funky retro style either! He’ll love it! This is much less expensive than most nice looking watches.

It’s a great price at only $27.99. Get it here.

 

If your guy wants to have a time piece, but doesn’t want to wear it on his wrist, enter my next suggestion…

 

 

6. Zeiger Classic Mechanical Steampunk Pocket Watch

 

 

Who doesn’t like pocket watches? They are super classy and fun statement pieces!

This one is exquisite, with a gorgeous steampunk design and a black tone. To top it off, the surface is scratch resistant, and it features classic roman numerals. It’s also super affordable. He will feel classy and modern all at once!

Only $14.19! Find it here.

 

 

 7. Bear Paws Shredder Claws

 

 

 

 

Pretty much every manly man loves to BBQ meat. But who ends up shredding that beautiful brisket or pork roast for yummy sliders? Yea, in my house, it’s me.

With these super studly bear claws, you’ll never be given the meat shredding responsibility again. What guy doesn’t want to use these babies to shred up their perfectly cooked meat? I mean, it’s just another excuse for him to play with his food.

A steal at only $12.95! Get them here.

 

 

8. Beard Care Kit

 

 

For men with beards, a beard kit is the perfect gift. This one by QQ Wow is fabulous because it’s affordable, it includes beard oil, balm, and a quality wooden comb, and it all comes packed in a nice little reusable tin. So easy for traveling!

Only $19.99 to boot! Find it here.

 

If you don’t want to get him a beard care kit, at least grab him a quality bottle of beard oil. My very favorite is:

 

 

9. Topher’s Beard Oil

 

 

 

 

This beard oil is the shit! It smells absolutely incredible and instantly makes me want to jump Mr. Og’s bones! It also helps your guy’s beard to grow in thicker and healthier. Mr. Og’s beard is SO soft when he puts his Topher’s on! I’m in love with this stuff!

You only need a couple of drops–it goes a LONG way. Mr. Og can make this bottle last for almost 6 months.

Oh the smell! There are a ton of scents you can choose from. I’ve smelled four of them: Drunken Pirate, Whiskey & Woodsmoke, Sandalwood & Cedar, and Spiced Tobacco. I gotta say, my favorite is Spiced tobacco, but really, you can’t go wrong with any of them. They are all amazing!

It’s only $20.00!  Find it here.

 

 

10. Liquor Decanter Set

 

 

Most guys have a liquor of choice that they love to enjoy when their buddies come over, or by themselves in the evening after a hard day at work. Why not make the experience even finer for him with this stunning decanter set? It’s not only the coolest decanter ever, a 28 ounce globe with etched glass, but it’s also a work of art.

Each decanter is hand blown, with a custom designed ship on the inside. This kit also includes a wood base, two etched drinking glasses, eight stainless steel whiskey stones, a pair of tongs, a metal pour funnel, and a glass stopper! It’s a fantastic conversation piece, and I’m willing to bet it will even make his scotch taste smoother!

This is surprisingly affordable for only $39.99! Buy it here.

 

 

 

11. Xbox One X

 

 

 

Mr. OG likes to have the newest gaming console he can get. This year it’s the XBOX One X.

This puppy is loaded. You get a fully immersive 4K gaming experience with premium Dolby Atmos and DTS:X Audio, so he’ll feel like he’s ACTUALLY in the game. Plus it’s compatible with all things XBox One, so his old accessories and games will still work! You will love it too, because you can stream Netflix, Hulu, HBO Go and so much more in that quality 4K!

It’s the most expensive item on our list at $498.51, but totally worth it! Buy it here.

 

 

12. Call of Duty World War 2

 

 

 

 

If you get him the Xbox One X, you definitely need to get him the coolest new game for it, which is Call of Duty WWII! It just came out this month and it’s amazing. I’ve seen it played and the graphics are stunning! It still holds true to the COD we all love, too!

If you can’t afford to get the new gaming console, just pick him up this game, and he will love you forever!

Typical game price is $59.99. Get it here.

 

 

13.  Cologne Sampler

 

 

 

I’ve gifted this to many people over the years because it’s just so great! You know when you can’t decide what cologne or perfume you want? Don’t you wish you could try each kind for a day or two to see how you REALLY like it?

Enter Sephora’s solution: the cologne sampler (they also have a perfume sampler for women). The samples come in a nice classic travel bag, and you get 12 of the most popular men’s fragrances. The best part is that it comes with a certificate for a FULL-SIZED BOTTLE of the fragrance he likes best! This can be redeemed at any Sephora store in the U.S.

It’s only $65, and you can be sure it’s a scent he will love, because he will pick it out himself! Get it here.

 

 

14. Jerky of the Month Club

 

 

 

Every guy loves meat, and jerky counts! There are quite few monthly jerky clubs out there, but not all are created equal.

My favorite is Jerky Snob. There is no MSG, no nitrates, and no high fructose corn syrup, so you’re guy will still be healthy! Plus, they have a variety of different flavors that he’s sure to love!

Starting at only $15 a month (that doesn’t include S & H), it’s a steal! Join here.

 

 

15. Anti-Aging Kit

 

 

This may sound like a weird one, but check this: I’m 33 now, and therefore have been changing up my skincare routine A LOT. Mr. OG has gotten to hear about it many times.

One day he said he wanted to get himself a lotion for his face. It was the first time he’d ever expressed interest in skin care. But with us getting older, it’s something that has been on his mind.

Your guy will likely never go get himself anti-aging products, which is why this is such a great gift. It’ll get him on a great skincare routine without him feeling goofy about it.

This kit by Brickell is very well-reviewed, and it’s simple, just two products. First is the Revitalizing Anti Aging Cream, that firms and smooths his skin, and second is the Restoring Eye Cream that reduces puffiness & dark circles. Both work to smooth fine lines and wrinkles as well. Because it’s so simple, it shouldn’t be too hard for him to implement these into his morning or evening routine.

You can get it for $80, right here.

 

 

 

16. Make Your Own Hot Sauce Kit

 

 

At this point you may be starting to realize that I LOVE kits. This one is especially great because it involves your guy creating something of his own, which is half the fun! Almost every man loves a good hot sauce. This kit has excellent reviews on Amazon. It includes your ingredients for the sauce, as wells as  three bottles with lids and dashers, three fully customizable labels, a funnel, a pair of gloves, sanitizer, and a booklet with recipes and instructions. The whole shebang!

It’s also only $29.95. Get it here.

 

Is your guy not into spicy? Try this instead:

 

 

17. Make Your Own BBQ Sauce Kit

 

 

This is a great option for those gents who just don’t enjoy spiciness in their food. BBQ sauce is great as a marinade, or a dipping sauce. It’s Mr. Og’s very favorite.

With this kit you can make three different types of BBQ sauce. He will also still get that nice feeling of being able to enjoy something he made himself. All of the ingredients and supplies are included, so you don’t need to worry about anything missing, or having to gather extra ingredients. He’ll love it!

It’s also only $39.95! You can find it here.

 

 

18. Lifestraw Personal Water Filter

 

 

 

This thing is rad! There are so many situations where it can be useful.

You can take it camping, hiking, anywhere you travel, or you can put it into an emergency kit. It’s fantastic because it can really suck (oh the puns!) to have to carry around water. Water is heavy! So on that hiking trip, ditch the jugs and bring along your Lifestraw.

This baby can filter up to 1,000 liters of water. It doesn’t take batteries, and it surpasses EPA filter standards. It’s also only 9 inches long, so you can easily fit it pretty much anywhere. Your guy will love this tool!

It’s only $19.45! Buy it here.

 

 

19. Cyber Cleaning Putty

 

 

Cyber Cleaning Putting rocks! It’s a perfect little gift for a guy who loves his tech gadgets, and also is a bit of a clean freak (not mentioning any names, Mr. Og).  It works on almost any electronic gadget to get all that dust and gunk that even those aerosol cleaning duster cans leave behind.

You can use it on keyboards, phones, cameras, calculators, portable speakers, the back of your computer, the mouse, and any other electronic equipment you can think of. Even better, it can be used on kitchen appliances, remote controls, window sills, fans, brief cases, watches, jewelry, and so much more. It also has a nice fresh lemony clean smell to it.  It may not be the most exciting gift, but I guarantee it will be one he uses all the time!

It doesn’t break the bank either at only $10.99. Get it here.

 

 

20. Personalized White Oak Aging Barrel

 

 

What guy isn’t going to love his own personalized whiskey (or whatever spirit he likes) barrel? It looks wicked cool and will be one of his favorite pieces to expand his bar collection.

This barrel is two liters, and you can use it to age whiskey, beer, wine, tequila, rum, and even things like vinegar or honey. You can also have it engraved with your man’s name or nickname as well, making it completely his own–one of a kind.

It’s not only useful, but it’s a great conversation starter and a true work of art.

It’s also only $59.95! Buy it here.

 

 

21. BROUK & CO Leather Golf Flask

 

 

 

For your guy who loves to golf, this is one of the most unique and super cool gifts I’ve found.

Mr. Og loves to golf, but after a couple of years of Christmases, birthdays, and anniversaries, he pretty much has everything under the sun he could possibly need for the sport. Enter this little guy. It’s not only extremely well-made, but it also looks super sleek!

It hold 8 ounces of his favorite liquor, and some golf tools: 2 removable markers, 4 wooden tees, and a divot tool. As if that weren’t awesome enough, it also conveniently clips right to his golf bag!

Totally worth it for $43.27! Get it here.

 

 

22. Stadium Art Print

 

 

For your sport lover, why not get him a killer piece of art for his man cave (or man corner)?

This is an awesome print of Mr. Og’s favorite team stadium, the Century Link field where the Seattle Seahawks play. You can find just about any stadium your guy will like, whether it’s football, baseball, college, or the big leagues. Check Amazon. They have aerial photos, blueprint styles, drawings, paintings and more!

This print is only $29.95, so you can afford a nice frame for it, too! Get it here.

 

 

23. Bottle Loft

 

 

I love this gift so much because it’s a space saver! It comes with two VERY strong magnetic strips that you can hang a six pack of beer bottles from.

It’s super easy to install, and you will love the extra space it frees up for you in the fridge. Plus, it’s just cool looking, am I right? He will appreciate the simplicity but total coolness of this little gem of a gift!

It’s only $29.99. Find it here.

 

 

24. Magnetic Wristband

 

 

This wristband is super awesome for your mister! There’s always something to hammer, nail, hang, straighten, or whatever in your house. Out comes Mr. Handyman with thirteen nails stuck in his mouth. Inevitably, he swallows one and drops the other twelve.

Not anymore! The Magnetic Wristband by Magnogrip is great for those projects. Your guy can stick the nails right onto the wristband, and they aren’t going anywhere! No choking hazard, and no stepping on a nail three months later. Everybody wins!

You can get it for only $10.45. Buy here.

 

 

25. Folding Compact Workbench

 

 

Portable gifts are just great! Your guy can easily unfold this workbench anywhere he needs to do some real work. By the kitchen sink, or the washer, in the back yard, or in the garage.

He can also take it with him if he has a project that needs to be done away from home. He will love how easy it is to fold and carry.

It holds up to 1000 pounds, and has two 12 inch clamps. Here are the dimensions:  (W X D X H): 85.0 X 55.0 X 75.5cms. This will be a guaranteed winner!

It’s super affordable at $74.33! Get it here.

 

 

26. The Godfather on Blu-Ray

 

 

 

Every guy should own this series by Francis Ford Coppola. It doesn’t get much more classic than this!

Give him the chance to watch the rise and fall of the Corleone family. This is packed with amazing actors: Al Pacino, James Caan, Robert Duvall, Marlon Brando. It was also nominated for ten Academy Awards, winning three of them, including the highly coveted Best Picture.

He will cherish this masterpiece forever!

It’s only $29.78 for the whole set on blu-ray! Get it here.

 

 

27. Grilled Cheese Bags

 

 

Sure, this may seem like a simple, cheap, cheesy gift, and that’s because it IS (pun TOTALLY intended).

These bags are awesome! They make a fantastic grilled cheese sandwich, and he doesn’t have to pull out pans, spatulas, wash dishes, and all that jazz. He can easily slip his bread and cheese into the bag and throw it right into the toaster! Best of all, you don’t get stuck with the cleanup.

This is also great for bachelors and college students, or for when you are out of town and your mister has to fend for himself. It’s a set of three, and they are disposable, so he can just toss them when done!

They are only $6.49. Get them here.

 

 

28. Echo Show

 

 

 

A lot of guys have received the Echo or the Echo Dot in the last couple of years. I’m pretty sure Mr. Og considers Alexa his mistress. He loves her.

Now you can impress your guy even MORE with the Echo Show. This has everything you already love about Alexa, but it adds video! You can make calls, connect it to security cameras and baby monitors, watch music videos or cooking tutorials (while cooking), look at photos, and more, all hands free!

It also has Dolby processing, extended bass response, eight microphones, beam-forming technology, and noise cancellation for excellent audio quality and response. The one thing I’ve always thought was missing from Alexa was the visual component, and now it’s here. Believe me, he will love love LOVE this!

It’s decently priced at $229.99. Get it here.

 

 

29. Beard Shaving Bib

 

 

Honestly, this looks like it’s for him, but it’s kind of for YOU.

Mr. Og always leaves hair everywhere when he shaves or trims his hair. Try as he may, there’s always little bits of hair in the sink, in cracks, on the floor. It’s everywhere! Not anymore with this beard shaving bib.

It fits around his neck like the typical aprons you wear to get your hair cut. But the ends suction to the mirror, so it catches all the hair, and makes disposal a cinch!

This comes with a free stainless steel beard shaping tool, a beard catcher mat and a travel bag. No more hair all over the bathroom!

It’s also only $11.98! Find it here.

 

And finally, last but certainly not least……..

 

 

30. Full-Size Kegorator

 

 

Ladies, this is guaranteed to make him a happy man! What guy doesn’t want to be able to drink fresh poured draft beer in the comfort of his own home? What girls doesn’t want that either, for that matter?

This is especially great for fellas that like to home brew. The specs are impressive: It has a 5.1 cubic foot capacity, a double meter regulator, a 2.5 pound CO2 tank, a removable drip tray, an adjustable thermostat, a double tap system and more!

It’s a great gift for enjoying a beer after work, or for hosting a party and serving some home brew to all your friends. They will be impressed, and he will love it, I promise you that!

It’s totally worth the investment at $415.32! Buy it here.

 

So there you have it! Thirty of the best gifts you can get for that manly man in your life. Stay tuned for more gift guides in the coming weeks!

 

Share this list with your friends so they can impress their manly men!

    • Amber, The OG says:

      My guy got one a few months ago, which is where I got the idea. The money clip is super convenient, too. He doesn’t have to take forever trying to pull out or put back his money in the check out line anymore. And the RFID security makes him feel safe.

  6. Jeanine says:

    Oh this is so helpful. My husband is so hard to buy for and this would be so awesome and helpful for me when I need to buy him some gifts!

  7. Men are so hard to buy for because of exactly what you mentioned. These are great suggestions, especially for the gamer, foodie, techie or beard enthusiast in your life. I find the best way to pick a gift for your guy is to pay attention to the things they like or to the things they need.

  8. Amalia says:

    My husband loves everything related to the X-Box, if I got him some games I know he will be happy! I found the Lifestraw Personal Water Filter and the wooden watch super original too, for s goo surprise!

  12. I hardly get what a manly man truly is but most go the items you proposed are great also for “stylish” and elegant men, ie all the watches and the beard care kit ( I LOVE man with beard!)

  14. Krystle Cook says:

    Gifts for men are always so hard! There are so many great ideas here for what to get the man in your life.

  16. Alison Rost says:

    My husband and I have been together for years but I still find it difficult to find the perfect gift for him! I totally agree with you on that and this is such a lovely list! It covers pretty much any man’s interests.

    • Amber, The OG says:

      I know! When I was making this list I kept thinking, “I want this, and that, and those…” So many cool things for guys out there!

    • Amber, The OG says:

      That’s nice! Even if someone missed the mark a little bit on a gift, the fact they thought of me at all just makes me so appreciative!
