Gift Guide For Guys

I've heard some people say that it's often the guys in their lives that are the hardest to buy gifts for. I find it to be quite the contrary when it comes to those I have to shop for especially my husband. I always joke that he gets presents from me all year long since I'm responsible for choosing his entire wardrobe. This is actually a win-win for us since it means that he'll never wear anything I think is hideous and I happen to have pretty good taste. Well I'm quite sure it's better than most men and he often does gets a good number of compliments on the way he dresses. When it comes to holiday gifts, clothing, accessories or tech are usually a sure bet for most males. What do you tend to gift to the men in your lives?

1. J. Crew Factory Silk Dot Bowtie
Cause bowties are so dapper!
2. Everlane Chunky Wool Beanie
A hat should ideally be warm and look good too.
3. J. Crew Jacquard Lambswool Shawl Collar Sweater
Sweaters always make great gifts and this one has really nice looking details.
4. Clarisonic Alpha Fit Sonic Cleansing System for Men
My husband has become a Clarisonic fan since trying mine with his own brush head. If he is willing to use it regularly he should have his own.
5. Motorola Moto 360 Smart Watch
It's cool how watches do more than tell time these days.
6. Sony Noise Cancelling Headphones
A good pair of headphones are a necessity but they shouldn't cost a small fortune.
7. Uniqlo HeatTech Extra Warm T-Shirt
We're big fans of HeatTeach underwear and this baseball style t-shirt can be worn on the outside.
8. Happy Socks Dotted Crew Socks
Colorful socks are such an easy way for guys to add a little fun to their outfits.
9. Onitsuka Tiger Ultimate 81 Sneaker
One of my husband's favorite sneakers. These have a modern low profile look while being effortlessly stylish.
10. Ray-Ban 61 mm Square Sunglasses
Ray-Bans are so classic and reliable.
11. Mini USB Travel Humidifier
My husband complains about his office being dry and this USB powered humidifier could be a practical solution.

Your husband must be a well-dressed man, then, Rowena, haha. I recently gifted a beanie and a bowtie to my boyfriend during his birthday and I've got to say -- those are fail-proof. Watches and sports shoes are always good options, too.

This is a wonderful list, Rowena!

So great your husband lets you dress him especially as you have a nice sense of style. I think a lot of husbands don't particularly enjoy shopping, so it's a win win for all when their wives are ready to step in... When I was in high school, when we saw a particularly well dressed guy in our school, we would always ask him does he has a sister and it would always turned out that he does have a sister who helps him dress well ha ha ha....

Anyhow, I must admit that I do find buying present for men hard, the only exception being my brother. My husband doesn't like presents and he is against receiving and giving gifts at Christmas time because he thinks that makes it commercial. I don't usually shop clothes for him because I never know what he will like...and picking up a gift for my dad is equally difficult. So, I really appreciate your gift ideas and I always like to read gift suggestions at this time of year.

In reply to your comment, I really hate stereotypes too! I think we should be past them in this day of time.

My husband isn't that hard to shop for, anything technical will do, but my father is a nightmare!

Awesome list, I could immediately pick five or six items off that list and know that the hubby would love 'em.

To be honest, Rowena, I also find it very difficult when I buy gifts for men. I am sure your hubby dresses great, since I have no doubt you choose only stylish items for him! I like the idea of hat and headphones gift, would use it!

Helpful gift idea for they guys

Lilli said...

Morning Rowena! Oh, your hubby is lucky to have u, I know u have such a good taste! Well, for me is always complicated making gifts for men in general lol so ur guide is much appreciated. Love the sweater and the smart watch. Have a great week ahead, many kisses! xo

Stella said...

Didn't know there was a Clarisonic for men.
I think a watch or a parfume is a safe gift idea.
Have a nice week!

This is a really good gift guide, Rowena! Must say this is the first time I heard about Onitsuka but I love the sound of the designs so I'm going over to see the rest of their collections and whoa! Since when Motorola has a smart watch? I used to have Motorola mobiles phone in my 20s, they have some of the best designs!

Great picks Rowena! Buying for men is easy for me, since I used to be a menswear designer. I think tech gifts are always good, but practical pieces like that Uniqulo shirt and socks are essential as well. :) Happy Monday. /Madison

Ah, great round up, and a USB humidifier? Wow had no idea there was such a thing, I bet when someone first opens this they don't know what it is but then you have the fun of explaining such an unusual but useful gift.
