So apparently I’m not the only one who struggles with this.
Because so many of you have written such a warm “thank you” for all the gift ideas.
It all began with my own challenge in finding something wonderful and special for that husband of mine (pictured below). I’m not saying he’s picky…just not easy to shop for, if you know what I mean. 😉
That’s where it started, but not necessarily where it finished. Because once our sons grew older and Lego’s didn’t quite cut it anymore, I had them to think about too (and my dad and my father-in-law and…).
And so I wondered if anyone else had a hard time figuring out what gift to get that guy that would be “just the thing.”
As it turns out, there are BUNCHES of us! (or bunches of them, as the case may be)
Now each year, I put together a list of gift ideas that I hope will encourage and help you in your holiday shopping. And if you’re wondering what I base my Gift List on, each idea has to be:
- High quality (based on my experience and lots of reviews)
- Interesting (something a bit different than the ordinary)
- Affordable (every budget differs, but these range from $12 to $69 and most falling somewhere in between)
So here they are, this year’s gift ideas for the guy you love!
15 Gift Ideas for that Guy You Love

BEST. GIFT. EVER: “I got this kit for my hubby for the holidays and he absolutely loved it! I am an attention to detail freak, and appreciate all the extra goodies included like the gloves, ph strips and bottling funnel. So far we made 3 of the recipes that came with the kit and the Smokin’ Sauce is our favorite… seriously better than anything we ever tried!” (5 Stars) ~ Amanda. Basically, this is a very HOT gift! 😉 Available—>HERE
Maybe your guy is different than mine. But my man really hates shopping for himself. As in really. Although he doesn’t mind dressing nice and knows that I enjoy seeing him that way too.
So this was an ongoing challenge…until I found the most wonderful solution! Stitch Fix. An online styling service that “gets” men. They hand-pick pieces to fit his tastes, needs, and budget—and then mails them directly to your door. He tries it on, sees what he likes, and sends back what he doesn’t. Easy-peasy! I can’t tell you how much I LOVE this service!! Learn more—>HERE
Stitch Fix is available as a Subscription OR offers a Gift Card too!
**BONUS: I know, I know…this is a gift post for men, but I just have to tell you that I love Stitch Fix for ME too. In fact, that’s how this whole thing started! A style game-changer for me. I can’t rave enough about this service! If you have a minute, check it out for yourself—HERE.
Now wait, before you go thinking “How exciting can another knife be?” Let me just say that every guy I asked (in an “unofficial” but reliable survey), said they considered a knife/tool like this one as a FANTASTIC gift. So don’t take my word for it, take theirs! Available—->HERE

We’ve received so many enthusiastic “thank you’s” from guys who found this book very helpful in their desire for a better marriage (honestly!).

I don’t know what it’s like around there, but coffee time is a highlight in our home.

This is a very fun (and tasty) idea and something to look forward to each month. BONUS: You can get $10 off by using this code here: PL7U Available—>HERE

★★★★★ “Excellent Product” Upon opening the package, the wonderful smell of leather immediately hits the nose. Visually, this journal really stands out, reminding one of a book from a bygone era. After opening the journal itself, the quality of the parchment within really stands out. Again, it has that old world look and feel to it. As for practical use, the journal is very easy to write in and the included pen and pen holster are an added bonus.” ~ Dexter And so many more 5-Star Reviews…. Available—>HERE
