Do you find yourself buying the same thing for your man every Christmas? We’re letting you in on a secret. Here’s what guys want for Christmas instead.
Tired of buying your beau the same gifts year after year? We get it. Knowing what guys want for Christmas can sometimes be hard to figure out.
However, the best thing you can do is consider his personality, interests, and the various areas of his life to find the perfect gift this holiday season.
What Guys Want for Christmas
In the event that you need a little extra help, we’ve turned to the experts to round up our list of the best Christmas gifts for men this year. Whether your guy is a thrill seeker or a corporate mogul, you’re sure to find something on this list he’s going to love.
What’s the real gift that keeps on giving? Something to get you both in the mood month after month. Adult subscription boxes like Spicy Subscriptions delivers lingerie, toys, and goodies to your door each month to keep things interesting in the bedroom.
Not only is this one gift he probably wasn’t expecting to see under the tree, but it’s likely that this will be a gift for both of you.
There’s no denying it: guys love tech. When it comes to finding the right gadgets for men, you always want to lean towards what’s small, sleek, and fast. This season we recommend the Fire TV Cube from Amazon.
Not only does it come with the power of the voice automated Alexa system, but it also takes his TV watching to the next level. It’s part smart assistant and part Netflix and chill. Is there really a better gift than the ultimate home theatre? We think not.
Something for Their Health
We love a man that’s all about looking and feeling good inside and out. For the health enthusiast on your list, we suggest the Fitbit Charge 3. The new Fitbit keeps track of every possible area of his health, from his diet and exercise to his sleep habits and stress levels.
The personal feedback allows him to make the adjustments he needs to stay in shape. The new Fitbit Charge 3 also syncs to multiple smart devices and hundreds of apps, offering endless health possibilities.
Something for Their Work
If your guy is still lugging around his laptop and work gear in the same backpack he was using in college, it’s time to upgrade him. If he’s not the briefcase kind, that doesn’t mean you can’t get him an option that’s a little more “grown-up”.
Bag options like the Modern Zip Backpack from Everlane look professional enough to bring into the conference room without having to sacrifice comfort. With the ability to hold a 13-inch laptop, and a strong water resistant frame, it may just be his new favorite carry on.
Something to Feel Manly
Nothing turns a boy into a man like a little heat. If your honey is the firey kind, he’ll love the macho power that comes with a good hot sauce pack. Our personal favorite? The Good Hurt Fuego: Hot Sauce Sampler Pack.
Not only does this pack come with classic favorites like Garlic Herb, but it also features the infamous Ghost Pepper sauce. No doubt it will inspire the next round of “are you man enough?” with his buddies.
Something for Their Buddies
If you’ve got a gamer on your hands, you really can’t go wrong by buying the seasons hottest gaming system. The Nintendo Switch is designed to be a portable gaming system that brings quality games while still offering that retro feel.
Not only does the gaming system go where your man goes, but it can also connect to the TV when he gets home to turn hand-held action into home play, making it the perfect option to play solo or with his friends.
A little adrenaline always makes for a great gift, and if your man is the adventurous type, you’ll want to give him a gift he’ll remember forever. Experience gifts like indoor skydiving lessons, for example, offer all the fun of a skydiving experience without the whole “jumping out of a plane” part.
Not sure if that’s the kind of adventure he’d be into? Try giving him a gift certificate for Cloud9 so he can choose his own adventure.
Something for Their Pad
Nothing makes a man feel more like Sean Connery than a good Scotch on the rocks, not to mention it makes him look like a boss. While you can leave the kind of scotch up to him, you can be sure he looks like a real aficionado by getting him a top of the line drinking glass set.
Norlan Glass sets are a great option since they were designed to not only look great but to actually make whiskey taste better. That’s one gift he can use time and time again.
Something for Their Closet
Just like the ladies, men like to look good. However, it can be difficult to find a clothing item that really fits their taste. So what do you go for? Another sweater? Another tie? This year, we suggest opting for something they can wear with anything.
The right watch is a classy and eye-catching detail, especially when it features the right details like a leather band and a recognizable name. Look for classic Italian pieces, like one from Vincero, to keep him looking good all year round.
Taking the Stress Out of Holiday Shopping
The holiday season doesn’t have to be a stressful one, and you can still find exactly what guys want for Christmas gift without having to break the bank. With a little forward planning and the right research you can find your man a gift he’ll love for years to come.
Remember, at the end of the day it’s the thought that counts, and stopping to think about what your partner would enjoy is one of the actions that keep relationships going strong.
