YOUR SEARCH FOR THE PERFECT FOR HIM GIFT IDEA IS OFFICIALLY OVER! THIS TIME, WOW HIM WITH SOMETHING UNEXPECTED.
Thanksgiving is tucked safely behind us as we approach the season of Christmas jingles, shimmering tinsel, hot chocolate and marshmallows—and finding that perfect gift idea for him. You know the gift idea I’m talking about. The one he secretly wants. The one you can’t quite figure out!
Hint: When you’re shopping for the man in your life, consider his hobbies and interests. How does he spend his time and money? What does he talk about?
Once you have a better understanding of the hobbies and topics that excite him, dig a little deeper to learn what he’s missing. Perhaps the 3rd season to his favorite TV show, photography accessory, or camping gear essential for his next backpacking excursion. Or, surprise him with something unexpected that he doesn’t necessarily need, but would truly enjoy and appreciate.
Either way you go, whether searching for that special someone, family member, or friend, I’ve gathered 10 of the best gift ideas he’s bound to love. Keep in mind, these gift ideas for him are perfect for any occasion, any time of year!
Star Wars ice cube trays
Ice cube trays complete with Han Solo frozen in carbonite. Need I say more?
Going vintage is an option, but because record players have made quite the comeback, you have your pick from a selection of newer models.
Have you ever noticed men standing around in the Lego store, without children in tow? 😉 Look for a more complex Lego set—one that he can sit down with for hours (or days). Like this International Space Station or (if you really want to go all out) the Star Wars Millennium Falcon.
Whether at home or on the go, when he reaches for his flashlight he needs to trust it’ll do its job. This means durability and reliability are key factors when choosing the right one, not to mention a decent light output. In my opinion, you can’t go wrong with a Fenix flashlight. Personally, I love mine for its light weight, small size, and high lumens, plus multiple brightness and strobe settings.
Not only a great choice for toting off his favorite craft brew from the local brewery, a growler is a must-have water or coffee dispenser for day trips, camping trips or even just long days on the job.
Cocktail shaker set
A cocktail shaker set is just what he needs to craft premium cocktails (and at a fraction of the price ordering from a restaurant or bar). Consider complimenting this gift with a recipe book like this one found on Amazon.
Encourage the art of the handwritten note with a simple, personalized stationary set. One set of cards may last him for months (or years) to come, but he’ll be relieved knowing he can reach into his desk drawer—rather than rushing to the store—to jot a note of thanks.
Leather scent candle
This 100% soy wax candle is non-toxic and made with organic essential oils, poured to perfection to give him hours of true leather scent.
If he isn’t the type to document his thoughts, a journal can still be a great gift as it provides a space to jot down recent happenings or detail his current hobby or projects. And you never know—receiving a beautifully crafted journal may just be the inspiration he needs to begin journaling.
