Holiday Gift Guide for Men That Are Difficult to Shop For

Men are notoriously difficult to shop for. I can’t even get Jonathan to pick a favorite color, let alone tell me what he wants for Christmas! To make it a bit easier for you, I’ve put together a holiday gift guide for men in your life. Whether you’re shopping for a family member you’ve only seen in 2020 via Zoom, a coworker who has gotten surprisingly close during quarantine, or a pandemic boo thing, here is a holiday gift guide for men with 10 gifts at a variety of price points.

Under $25 Gifts for Him

“manly” skincare
One of my proudest accomplishments for 2018 was getting Jonathan to start using skincare products. Now that he’s getting into a routine, I definitely need him to get some products of his own, because he’s starting to dip into my stash! I love that this set comes in travel sizes because that’s precisely when Jonathan forgets to keep up with his skincare.

Google Home Mini
If you’ve got a guy that’s always running a tad bit late – ok VERY late – get him a Google Home mini so he can set reminders, ask directions, and call you to tell you he’s late all with a quick “Ok, Google”. Although usually $50, this is almost always on sale during Cyber Weekend for $25, and even sometimes comes free with the purchase of a full size Google Home or Nest.

pajama bottoms
This is one of those practical gifts that works for every family member, but these pajama bottoms are fleece-lined, so they are definitely warmer than most!

Under $75 Gifts for Him

High Quality Razors
A gift ready to go under the tree that’s a win-win for you both. Durable and reusable quality razors for him, and smooth kissable cheeks for you! Did I mention that the shave gel smells really nice?

Cold Weather Accessories
For the guy who’s always cold but doesn’t want to sacrifice style for warmth, this merino wool lululemon beanie is so cute, you might want to borrow it for yourself.

$100+ Gifts for Him

Fleece Pullover
If you’re looking for a more elevated clothing item for a guy who lives in hoodies, look no further than this Patagonia half-zip fleece. Jonathan has it and has gone days without taking it off in the wintertime.

Fly Comfy Kicks
Although you can spend a grip on sneakers these days, there are a few casual and stylish pairs under $150. For men, I’m a huge fan of the Adidas NMDs Deerupts, and Continental 80s, and Jonathan approves of them too!
Black Addidas sneakers
Between my husband and my brother, I’m not sure who goes through headphones more quickly. These Beats wireless earphones can’t get separated like the Airpods, and stay put during exercise. Maybe this will help motivate the men in your life to actually go to the gym more often like they said they would?

Money Clip Wallet
I don’t know what men hold onto longer – socks with holes or beat up wallets! My love had the same wallet for 7 years (which I gave him) until I bought him a new one. After trying several styles, we both settled on a bifold wallet with an interior money clip to keep cash and receipts just as organized as cards, while still being slim enough to wear in the back pocket.

  1. Great ideas for a city guy! Unfortunately, my mate is country. His interest is guns, television and good food. ?? I take of the none interest of nice things for him.
