Holiday Gift Guide for the Guys

Hey y’all, happy Monday!  Today I’m sharing a few gift ideas for the guys in your life.  In my opinion, guys are the hardest of all to buy for – at least, they are in my family – so I tried to find some unique items unlike any you’ve seen so far.  Hopefully you’ll find it helpful! 

As always, the items come from a wide range of price points, so there should something for every budget!

1 – Ember Temperature Control Smart Mug

With this Ember Temperature Control Smart Mug, you can control the temperature of your coffee or tea right from your smartphone.  The mug keeps your drink heated to your desired temperature for up to 1.5 hours on full charge or all day on the coaster.  You’ll never have to reheat your coffee or drink cold coffee again!   

2 – The Encyclopedia of Cocktails

I’ve mentioned this book numerous times on the blog, but that’s just because it’s soooo good!  I originally purchased it for the bar cart that we put together for the school auction, and I loved it so much that I bought a copy for myself.  This sleek book contains over 1,000 cocktail recipes, and it also has loads of information about which tools to use, how to purchase the perfect spirits for your collection, as well as an in-depth guide to ice, simple syrups, shrubs, and bitters.  Each chapter is dedicated to a different liquor so you can easily find recipes for the spirits you already have on hand.


3 – All-In-One Mini MultiTool

This tiny tool contains a hammer, a nail claw, flat grip pliers, pipe grip pliers, a wire cutter, a straight knife, a saw, a serrated knife, a file, a flathead screwdriver, a Phillips screwdriver, and a bottle opener, but it’s small enough to fit in your pocket!  Such a powerhouse!


4 – JBL Clip Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker

This speaker is small and portable, but it still delivers rich audio, so sound is not compromised.  It can play up to 10 hours on a single charge.  This is perfect for any music lover!


5 – Nose and Ear Hair Trimmer

This nose and ear hair trimmer comfortably removes hair from your nose, ears, eyebrows, beard, and face, and it’s waterproof and washable so you can use it in the shower.  With 4.5 / 5 stars and almost 35,000 reviews, you can’t go wrong! 


6 – Biometric Fingerprint Lock

This biometric fingerprint lock is a great gift for the techie or the guy who has everything!  You can save up to 10 different user fingerprints and the lock opens in 0.5 seconds.  It clips easily to your keys, bag, or locker, and it can be used indoors or outdoors.


7 – Bamboo Docking Station

This docking station has compartments that hold a phone, watch, keys, glasses, bracelets, wallet, coins, documents, fitness tracker, jewelry, and wedding rings, and it’s made of natural bamboo, so it won’t bend or break.


8 – Beanie with Light

This beanie will not only keep your head warm, it also has a built-in LED light for hands-free light on the go!  Perfect for the outdoorsy guy!


9 – Blackstone Cooking Station

The ever-popular Blackstone is probably an item that you’ll see on many gift guides this year, but that’s because they’re so good!  The Blackstone replaces a standard grill, but it can do much more than a standard grill!  You can cook all of the items you’d make on a regular grill (steak, chicken, hamburgers, etc.) plus eggs, pancakes, quesadillas, grilled cheese sandwiches, stir fry, and anything else that you’d traditionally cook on a griddle!  This station has four different controllable heating zones so you can cook multiple items at once, and it’s a breeze to clean! 


10 – Ray-Ban Aviator Sunglasses

Aviator sunglasses never go out of style, so these are always a classic choice for any man on your list! 


11 – Kiehl’s Ultimate Strength Hand Salve

This Kiehl’s hand salve provides maximum strength moisture for dry hands.  “It helps protect against and repair the appearance of severe dryness caused by heavy industrial work, manual labor, neglect or exposure to harsh elements.  The salve allows the skin to draw and absorb water from the air, forming a glove-like protective barrier against moisture loss.  It’s formulated with a blend of botanical oils and natural wax derived from olive oil to sooth, moisturize, and condition skin.”  The entire Kiehl’s line is amazing!  We love this hand salve!


12 – Old-Fashioned Cocktail Smoker Kit

This Old-Fashioned Cocktail Smoker Kit is perfect for the whiskey lover.  It contains everything you need to make the perfect smoked drink – a torch, a mixing glass, a smoke board, three different wooden chip jars, and a bag to hold it all. 


13 – Crosley Turntable

This turntable is perfect for any music lover, especially since records have made quite the comeback in recent years.  This turntable is made from walnut wood, and it includes a dustcover to keep it protected.  It looks sleek and stylish in any décor, too.


14 – Ultrasonic Cleaner

This ultrasonic cleaner sanitizes small items (retainers, Invisalign aligners, pacifiers, jewelry, etc.) in just five minutes without the use of harsh chemicals.  Just plug it in, toss the items in, and press the button to start.


15 – Beard Apron

This beard apron catches hair, making for super easy cleanup.  No more clogged sink drains and no more little hairs all over the bathroom counters!


And that’s it, y’all!  I hope you found a little something for each of the men in your lives!
