Holiday Gift Guide for the Guys

*This post contains affiliate links.  As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

I have another holiday gift guide on deck for y’all today, and this one is for the guys!  Anybody else have the most trouble shopping for your guy??  I know I do.  Today I’m going to share a few ideas that I came across, and hopefully you’ll find it helpful.  Several of these items are things that Brian owns and LOVES so we know personally that they’re winners.  ;o)  As always, my assortment of items span most price ranges, so there’s something for everyone.  Here we go!

1 – Solo Stove

These Solo Stoves have been all the rage for a couple of years now and it’s not hard to see why.  These portable fire pits are compact, so they can be taken anywhere with you.  They provide more flame and they burn with almost no smoke, so they don’t leave clothes smelling like a campfire.  They also burn more efficiently than traditional fire pits, so you don’t have to worry about dealing with half-burned logs.  They are pricey, but they have rave reviews – and lots of them – so this would make a great investment gift for anyone who loves to spend time outdoors.


2 – Yeti Retractable Bottle Opener

This bottle opener can be attached to your Yeti Hopper for easy access, and its retractable cord extends 36 inches, so anyone can crack open an ice-cold beer anywhere with little effort.


3 – Slim Minimalist Wallet

This slim minimalist wallet is one of Brian’s favorite purchases of all-time.  It measures just 3 x 4.5 and is only 1/9 of an inch thick so it’s small enough to fit anywhere – your back OR front pocket, your purse, a travel bag, etc.  Though it’s small, it still has eight slots for your license and credit cards, and it effectively blocks RFID signals to keep your identity protected at all times.  It’s 100% leather and it comes in 28 different colors, and at just $12.99 it has a price point that everyone can love.  And apparently everyone does love it as it has nearly 67,000 reviews and 4.6 / 5 stars.  This would make the perfect stocking stuffer for anyone and everyone!


4 – Bamboo Pizza Board with Large Pizza Knife

This bamboo pizza board has notches built right in to ensure evenly cut slices every single time.  The board is made of bamboo, which is durable and will hold up well over time, and you can flip the board over and use the other side as a cutting board when you’re not using it for pizza.  Also included in this set is a heavy-duty steel knife complete with a protective cover for safety.   


5 – Ted Lasso Mug

Brian and I are both obsessed with Ted Lasso – seriously, could there be a more uplifting/funny/well-written show?!  There are so many different Ted Lasso mugs out there now, but I love the simplicity of this one.  It would make the perfect gift for any fan… I know I definitely have it on my list!  Oh, and there are also plenty of Roy mugs as well.  ;o)


6 – Personalized Beer Growler

This beer growler holds 64 oz. of beer, and it can be customized in many different ways.  The growler comes in amber or clear glass, and then you can choose from seven different personalization options to customize it just right for the one you love.


7 – BB-8 Pizza Cutter

This BB-8 Pizza Cutter is another item that we own and love.  I bought it for Brian three years ago for Christmas, and we’ve been using it ever since.  It still cuts beautifully all these years later, and the best part is – it makes little BB-8 noises the whole time you cut.  The kids think it’s hilarious and it would make a great gift for any Star Wars lover.


8 – Massage Gun

This massage gun helps relieve muscle pain and it promotes blood circulation as you use it.  It has 20 different speeds, and it comes with 10 different massage heads so you can target any specific spot on your body.  It’s cordless (which is awesome), and it comes with its own storage case.  It has over 12,000 reviews with 4.7 / 5 stars and it would make a great gift for anyone who works out a lot or experiences chronic pain, frequent back and neck aches, or headaches.


9 – Yeti Hopper Portable Cooler

This small, soft cooler is perfect to take along anywhere when you don’t want to have to deal with a big, bulky hard cooler.  It holds up to 12 cans plus ice, and it uses ColdCell Insulation, which keeps everything cold longer than traditional soft coolers.  The shell is waterproof and resistant to abrasions so it will hold up well over time.  And it pairs perfectly with the Yeti Bottle Opener I mentioned above!


10 – Toilet Timer

This toilet timer is more of a gag gift than anything, but I couldn’t resist including it on my list.  It’s a functional sand timer that runs for five minutes, and it would make a hilarious stocking stuffer for any guy who always turns a five-minute bathroom break into a 30 minute bathroom break.  Y’all know what I’m talking about?!  Haha.


11 – Electric Fire Starter

Brian purchased this electric fire starter a few months ago, and he deemed it, “one of the best purchases ever” so I couldn’t not include it on this year’s list.  This fire starter allows you to light anything easily (charcoal grills, woodburning fireplaces, fire pits, campfires, etc.) without dealing with matches or starter fluids.  Prior to owning this, Brian hated lighting our charcoal grill because it was such a long, annoying process, but with this starter, it just fires the charcoals right up.  It also uses electricity to light everything, so you don’t have to worry about lighter fluid chemicals tainting your food.


12 – Black & Decker Drill & Home Tool Kit Set

This Black & Decker Tool Kit is awesome because it has everything you need and nothing you don’t need, and it all fits in one compact case.  This would be the perfect kit to give to someone who is moving out on their own for the first time, or to someone who doesn’t do a lot of complicated repairs around their home.  It provides all of the basics that every homeowner needs without all of the frivolous pieces that most people don’t even know how to use.


13 – Saxx Boxer-Briefs

These Saxx boxer-briefs are breathable and they contain moisture wicking for ultimate comfort.  They come in lots of fun prints, including this beer version, and they would make a great gift for any guy who loves festive undies.  ;o)


14 – Ugg Men’s House Slippers

These Ugg slippers are made from 100% suede and they have rubber soles so they can be worn outside.  They are super stylish, and they are fully lined with wool to keep your man’s feet warm and cozy even on the coldest winter night.  They’re pricey as far as slippers go, but many of the reviews state that they last forever and they are the comfiest things you’ll ever put on your feet, so they may be a good investment.


15 – Blackstone Grill/Griddle

These Blackstone Grills are all the rage right now, and we know so many people who absolutely LOVE theirs.  It’s meant to be used outdoors like a grill, but because it has a griddle cooking surface, you can make pretty much anything on it – pizza, eggs, pancakes, burgers, steak, veggies, stir fry with rice, chicken – anything.  You can replace your grill with one of these and then you‘ll never have to worry about charcoal or kerosene again.  It has a battery push ignition, so you’ll be cooking with the simple push of a button.  It also folds up so you can take it on the go!  Almost sounds too good to be true!


16 – Drone

This remote-control drone is perfect for the guy who loves to play with various electronics.  It’s easy to use and can be used outdoors as well as indoors.  It has an image stabilization system to reduce video blurring and it has intelligent flight mode that enables the drone to fly automatically so you can use your hands for other things.  It also has a brushless motor which means that it’s less noisy than others.  This one has over 5,000 reviews and excellent reviews!


17 – Beer Flight Tasting Set

This beer flight tasting set includes four 4-oz. beer taster glasses settled in a beautiful wood tray.  Hollowed out areas below the glasses hold beer caps, and the chalkboard panel and soapstone pencil allow for beer labeling.  There are also handles carved into the sides for easy carrying.  This is another item that is highly rated, and it would be perfect for any craft beer lover!


And that’s my gift guide for the guys!! 

Happy Monday, y’all!
