Holiday Gift Ideas For Men
Do you find it hard to get the men in your life the perfect holiday gifts? Here’s a few ideas you might want to consider this holiday season:
Kiehl’s Ultimate Man Body Scrub Soap–My husband absolutely loves this stuff. Every year I buy him and the rest of the men in my family a bar for their stockings, it’s a huge hit.
J.Crew Cashmere Socks–Socks are never a bad idea and especially when you splurge a little and get your man a pair of cashmere socks. They’re cozy, comfy, soft and special!
Nature Box–How bout instead of a Beer of the Month club, you get your man a healthy snack box delivery? Nature Box delivers a monthly box of full size healthy, yet man approved snacks. My husband really liked all of the snacks in the October box we received and it’s a great way to keep the men in our lives satisfied and fit! The coolest thing about this gift, it also gives back. NatureBox donates one meal for every box sent out, to feed the over 14 million children in America who go hungry.
A Bow Tie–This may not be for everyone; but I think Bow Ties are awesome. My dad always rocks his Bow Ties, especially during holiday festive times. Tie the Knot, founded by Jesse Ferguson and Justin Mikita, makes really cool custom bow ties; and all proceeds from sales go to organizations fighting for the rights of gays and lesbians in America.
Fila Tee—What man doesn’t love a great casual tee for hanging around or working out in? Fila makes awesome men’s tee shirts that are lightweight, breathable and affordable.
Soul Poles Bamboo Ski Poles—Everyone is my family loves to ski. When I discovered these bamboo, environmentally friendly, handmade ski poles, I was thrilled! I think anytime you can get your guy something to do with his favorite sport, you’ve hit the jackpot. Since Sole Poles can custom design each pair of ski poles, you can have them hand painted with something symbolic and special for the man or men in your life.
Folbot Folding Canoe—If you really want to splurge on your guy (or have the whole family go in on this one for dad), get him an athletic adventure toy. Folbot makes the coolest kayaks and canoes that fold up in to a bag so you can easily store them and travel with them. Living in Manhattan, this makes perfect sense to have something we can store under our bed. Folbot’s are also easy to travel with, just throw over your shoulder like a backpack or stash in the trunk of the car.
Men also love activities so book tickets to a play, sporting event, cooking class, wine tasting, or concert. Handmade, heartfelt gifts mean a lot as well. Always remember that the best present is to be present for yourself and the men in your life. Make sure they know you’re there to listen to them and be there for them.
