Need a gift for the dude you work with? How about your dad? Your best friend's fiancé? We've got you covered. Men's gift guides are usually full of cliché items like beard combs, overpriced basketball hoops, decorative axes, and, of course, underwear. But not this one.
This year we're bringing you gift ideas for guys who deserve better. Wow him with something that says, "I know more about you than just that you wear socks!"
They say a way to a man's heart is through his stomach. While that's probably not true of every guy, this basket will win anyone over. With Cabot cheddar, Vermont Creamery cremont, Murray's apple butter, and olive oil crackers, it contains everything a guy needs to make a 10/10 snack.
This iPhone case is the coolest invention ever. Instead of a standard silicon or leather back, this one has a built-in Game Boy-esque console that legit works. So when your dude gets sick of scrolling through his social media, he can flip his phone over and play classic games like Tetris, Tank, Snake & Black, and more.
A speaker is usually something you give when you can't think of anything else. But this limited-edition Sonos designed by beloved Danish brand Hay should be at the top of your to-gift list. It's the size of a standard, portable speaker, but the sound quality is excellent. It can be controlled by Amazon Alexa, and it looks so good, he'll want to keep it on display.
Everybody loves chocolate, right? Well, he'll definitely love this chocolate. The candy bar trio comes in three decadent flavors: Heavens to Bacon (bacon-almond praline and potato chips), Mayan Spice (dark chocolate ganache and tortilla crunch), and Coconut Dream (coconut cookies, salted caramel, and dark chocolate). Is your mouth watering yet? Yeah, same.
This starter kit is for the guy who likes to set the mood—mood lighting, that is. These smart bulbs do it all: They can dim, change color, turn on or off on a schedule, and sync with your music or TV with the touch of a button on his phone or the sound of his voice using Alexa, Google Assistant, or Apple HomeKit. Pretty fancy, huh?
OK, giving cologne isn't revolutionary, but giving this one is. Answer a few questions about your recipient and Hawthorne will customize two colognes—one for work and one for play. Each fragrance is handcrafted by a team of award-winning perfumers, so you know it'll smell amazing and be perfectly suited for your dad/brother/boyf.
Whiskey stones are kind of the worst—they hurt your teeth every time you take a sip, and you have to wash them (unlike ice, which simply goes down the drain). Here's a gift the bourbon lover in your life will actually enjoy: This tray makes four large ice spheres that melt slowly and make any drink look like an expensive cocktail.
Still in search of the perfect present? We've got tons more gift ideas right here.
