10 Awesome Holiday Gift Ideas for Guys
Drawing inspiration from all the unique gifts I’ve ever given to the men I love, the one thing I’ve learned over the years is that guys want more than just another tie. That’s why it’s time to think out of the box!
Whether he’s into sports, outdoor activities, or live concerts, guys love gifts that make their lives better and more fun. From unforgettable experiences to truly cool tech gadgets and must-have everyday essentials, here are ten of the most awesome holiday gift ideas for guys.
Gifts for The Car Buff
Is your favorite dude a sports car fanatic? Or perhaps he has an appreciation for classic cars? Either way, buying him a ticket to one of the renowned car races at Laguna Seca in Monterey, California is one of the coolest gifts you could ever give him. From the undeniable thrill of the thundering engines as they roar past the stands to the opportunity to get up-close with the world’s most amazing automobiles, a trip to see the world-famous corkscrew (pictured above) is definitely a holiday to remember.
Gifts for The Music Lover
Does your dude enjoy listening to his fave tunes on repeat? Is he stoked to hit up all the hottest music festivals? If so, then consider giving him the ultimate music lovers’ gift this holiday by getting him tickets to Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival in San Francisco, California.
From chart-topping performers like The Weeknd (shown above), Metallica, and Odesza to up-and-coming indie acts, this annual mega-festival is one of the best places to catch the most incredible live performances. Not to mention – the venue is unparalleled, as it’s held in iconic Golden Gate Park.
Since tickets aren’t officially available yet, why not give him a hand-written Christmas card saying you’re taking him to next year’s festival? He’ll appreciate it even more than getting a solo ticket, as you’ll both be able to share the memorable experience together.
Gifts for The Dapper Dude
Is your guy always impeccably dressed, spends more time styling his hair than you (ok, that might be a stretch), or enjoys relaxing at the spa? Then he’s definitely a dapper dude!
To help your fave man look his best, give him the gift of a brighter smile with SmileNV. Say hello to an easy-to-use tray and dentist-approved gel that can get teeth whiter in a just a few applications at home. The trays can be molded to fit every unique smile in just five minutes. Plus you’ll start seeing a whiter, brighter smile after just one use. The powerful, dentist-approved whitening gel powered by CP+ technology goes on easy, wear it for 30 minutes to two hours daily to see the best results. The best part is – no sensitivity after!
Gifts for The Modern Man
When it comes to looking dapper from head-to-toe, help your guy stay groomed “down there” with this next gift.
The Manscaped line features a handy groin-grooming device that makes manscaping easy and fuss-free. Plus, it comes with American-made, specially formulated products and tools engineered to give a man a close, refined appearance. Oh yeah, and let’s not forget the masculine-looking bag that keeps his new “power tools” neatly (and discreetly) organized.
If he likes to stay fresh and clean down there, then this is a great holiday gift idea for him.
Gifts for The Epicurean Lover
If you’re shopping for a foodie or wine aficionado, then an epicurean adventure is a fabulous holiday gift idea.
A few of our favorite food and wine events have been the renowned Pebble Beach Food & Wine Festival as well as the charming Carmel Valley Wine Experience Grand Tasting. From gourmet food samplings from celebrity chefs to tasting the world’s most delectable wines, these are a few of the best places to indulge in Northern California. That’s why tickets to a food and wine festival is always a wise choice.
Gifts for The Golf Fanatic
Whether he dreams of becoming the next Dustin Johnson, or he just wishes he could sink a hole-in-one, why not inspire him to reach for the stars?
For any golf fanatic, one of the most popular bucket-list experiences is to play the world famous Pebble Beach Golf Links. But if a $525 price tag isn’t in your budget this holiday, then the next best thing is a sporty golf sweater (for only $45) with the iconic Pebble Beach logo embroidered on it.
This stylish pullover features premier dry-luxe stretch performance that provides high-level moisture management with stretch that allows for all over comfort and freedom of movement. From the driving range to the golf course, your man will feel like Tiger Woods when he’s dressed to play.
Gifts for The On-The-Go Guy
From the office to a round of golf with his buddies, your on-the-go guy probably usually feels sticky and less-than-stylish after a long day. But, that’s only if he’s been wearing a typical polo shirt or button-down!
To help him look his best (both on and off the course), give him sweat-wicking, four-way-stretch apparel by Ministry of Supply. Not only does this innovative fashion brand use the same fabric technology that Astronauts use, their Co-Founder even won a Half Marathon running in one of their 3-piece suits! Explains why all the “guys-in-the-know” are now wearing these virtually-sweat and wrinkle-proof shirts from the office to the driving range and beyond?!
With a gift like this, he’ll not only be ready to take on the day, he’ll feel stylish and presentable from dusk-to-dawn.
Gifts for The Fitness Fanatic
If your bae is a gym fanatic, an outdoor adventurer, or an active on-the-go dude, then he’ll definitely need to have a little “man cave” time when he gets home. To help him relieve muscle tension and relax (without feeling girly about it), the Green Goo Gym Bag Essentials Kit and Eucalyptus & Mint Relief Bath Salts are great gifts.
Incorporating natural ingredients that soothe, refresh, and relax him, these helpful bath & body products are great either as stocking stuffers or as holiday gifts. Help him unwind and alleviate tension with these gifts.
Gifts for The Family Man
If you’re shopping for you a sentimental guy who loves spending quality time with his family, then why not personalize his holiday gift this year? From custom-designed collages to photo albums and calendars, Snapfish makes it fun and easy to customize all types of products. They enable you to easily and quickly upload photos, arrange images, and print collages on canvas (which makes it easy to hang or display) and more.
With a gift like this, it reminds him of all the joyful memories, special moments, and big celebrations he has with you in his life. It’s gifts like this that make the holidays even more touching. Plus, if a picture is worth 1,000 words, can you imagine how much a gift like this will make him smile?!
Gifts for The Tech Geek
Last, but certainly not least, is one of our personal fave categories – smart home devices. From Google Home (pictured above) to Amazon Echo, make your guy’s life easier with one of these revolutionary smart home devices. Whether he wants to set weekly reminders, check the weather, stream music playlists, or even turn off the lights (with just the sound of his voice), then these awesome tech gifts will surely delight him.
