Holiday Gift Guide : For Him

This is another gift guide I really enjoy putting together mostly because I get my husband's input and some of these picks have been tried and tested by him. Depending on who you ask, shopping for guys can either be a simple or arduous task. It's always good to get them useful items that they wouldn't think to buy for themselves. Tech, personal grooming and fashion upgrades can work as well. We don't really make a big thing out of Christmas in our house since my husband and I buy things for each other throughout the year. I will be getting him this fitness device featured in my wellness gift guide.

Have you entered my latest giveaway? It might just be your answer to good hair days. I've partnered with Formulate to give away a fully customized shampoo and conditioner set. Check it out here.

1. Pinch Provisions Tech Kit
This ready to gift kit contains all the tech essentials needed to keep your devices charged and organized.

2. Byredo Mister Marvelous Eau De Parfum 
Marvelous name aside, this is a truly exquisite scent. The sharp, masculine, spicy, woody fragrance is distinguished and sophisticated with notes of mandarin leaves, neroli flower, green lavender, bamboo, black amber and white cedarwood. I managed to get a sample of this and it is intoxicating. I'm getting my husband the full size after he finishes the sample.

3. Herbivore Botanicals All Natural Post Shave Elixir
This all natural, skin soothing treatment has notes of cedar, citrus, witch hazel and aloe to protect and hydrate skin post shaving or anytime.

4. Baxter of California Pocket Comb
This handsome Swiss handcrafted men's comb will elevate the simple act of combing his hair.

5. Vitabrid C¹² Scalp Shampoo
This shampoo and conditioner formulated with safe ingredients works to effectively to improve and strengthen scalp and hair health. My husband and I both love this shampoo and so does everyone I've recommended it to.

6. Bose SoundLink Revolve Portable Bluetooth 360 Speaker
This stylish speaker delivers true 360° sound and more with up to 12 hours of playback. Bluetooth pairing turns it into a built-in speakerphone and there is also Siri or Google access.

7. Star Wars R2-D2 Coffee Press
This limited edition french press is sure to delight any Star Wars fan who is also a coffee lover.

8. Native Union Key Cable
This super compact charging cable conveniently attaches to your keys so you're never left without a charging cable. I have one and it makes life so much easier.

9. Panasonic Nose Hair Trimmer
Every man over 30 needs one of these. Trust me. My husband has had this particular model for years. It's under $15 and it gets the job done. 

10. Men's Society Handsome Hands Manicure Kit
This neatly packaged manicure kit comes with an assortment of essentials for groomed nails and hands.

11. Le Labo Face Mask
There's nothing unmasculine about this unscented, plant-based mask made with charcoal, bitter almond and radish seed which works to to deep cleanse, detoxify and repair skin without drying it out. And it'll look great in the bathroom cabinet too. Yes my husband is secure enough in his masculinity to use masks and his skin is all the better for it.

12. This Bag Is Not Yours Leather Bag Tag
The cheeky message adds a touch of fun to the stylish and functional luggage tag made from premium, vegetable-tanned leather which attaches via a sturdy, stainless steel cable.

13. Mark and Graham Baseball Leather Catchall
This classic catchall made from the same leather that is used to make baseball gloves would make a great addition to his dresser to help him stay organized and the snap closures which allow it to lay flat makes it suitable for travel use.  A monogram can be added for a personal touch.

14. H&M Slim Fit Blazer
I always say that the easiest way to elevate any outfit is with a smart blazer and that applies to men as well. My husband says it makes him feel more put together whenever he wears his.

15. Brixton Hooligan Driving Cap
This casual yet cool style of hat which is stylish as it is functional is perfect for guys who want to accessorize in a low key way. This is an example of how good it can look.

16. Darth Vader Silk Tie
Darth Vader makes anything cooler including this cool novelty silk tie. Sith > Jedi!

17. Levi's 511 Slim Fit Jeans
You can't go wrong with classic Levi's. The 511 features a fit that is slimmer than straight but not quite skinny with a touch of stretch for comfort. A dark rinse wash is always a good bet because it looks more polished and modern. My husband owns a few pairs. This cut works especially well on lanky builds.

18. Ted Baker London Stripe Scarf
Because every man should own a stylish and well made scarf!

19. Sorel Ankeny Mid Hiker Boots
These leather boots provide warmth and rain/snow protection without bulk. My husband says these are very comfortable and warm. The streamlined silhouette also looks decent with dress pants.

20. WANT Les Essentiels Bryce Cross Body Messenger Bag
The clean, minimalist design of this bag makes it contemporary and timeless at the same time.

These are great gifts for men, because to be honest most stuff they release for men at Christmas isn't that great. I like these though, aftershaves at Christmas are the best :))) x

I love these, chingu! Well, most of them for me like that messenger bag....bwahaha! And love that Darth Vader tie too. Unfortunately, my hubby is one of those that is literally the hardest to buy gift for because he just kinda gets whatever he wants and doesn't want others to get it for him...sigh....

What good options do you show us to give to the children, sometimes it can be difficult to find the perfect gift and here you have shown us options for all tastes, I lean more for personal care products that always come well a fragrance or a good shampoo. Kisses.
