Why is it that guys are always SO tough to shop for? I just ordered a bunch of Chris’ gifts… who knew shopping on the same Amazon account could be so confusing. Keeping things in your shopping cart is a giveaway when you share a computer!
I’m hoping to help solve part of that problem for you with my top picks for him. Good luck! 😉
- Yeti Rambler Tumbler ($64)
My dad loves his Yeti tumbler. He uses it all the time to keep his Dr. Pepper cold on the way to work. Apparently, you can leave ice in it overnight and it will stay cold… but it also works well for a morning cup of Jo and fits in most car cup holders!
- XX2i Optics USA1 Sunglasses (Originally $59.99, 50% off with code: XX2iRocks)
Your guy will thank you for these, let me tell you! They are very high quality, come in a variety of colors, have interchangeable lenses and (most importantly) do not fog up, so he can wear them for running or pretty much anything else.
- Under Armour Men’s Short Sleeve Tech Shirt ($24.99)
If there is one thing I’ve learned about guys, it’s that they like simplicity. This tech shirt is a good ole standby, and it comes in almost every color, so you can find one that suits him perfectly.
- Asics Performance Everyday Shorts ($46)
Perfect for running, basketball, or lounging around on a Saturday, these shorts are a fashionable length and lightweight. I like that they are tailored well, but still loose and athletic looking. They may show up under our tree this year, but my husband will just have to wait and see!
- Bose SoundSport In Ear Headphones ($129)
Do you know a guy who is picky about sound? I do! In all seriousness, he IS a musician, and these are his headphones of choice. They stay in well when working out, cancel noise, and have great sound quality.
- Kelty Acadia Six Person Tent ($289.95)
Give him the gift of an outdoor trip, together! The six person tent is actually plenty of space for two people (and a dog) with an air mattress. If you or your guy doesn’t want to rough it too much, this is a reasonably priced way to have a fun, but active weekend in the wilderness.
- Leatherman Wave Multitool ($93)
You can’t go wrong with tools. This one will give him everything he needs in one handy place.
- Head Digital Sport Running Gloves ($12.99)
One thing that guys often forget they need is gloves! These will go with his winter coat, and his running apparel. They are compatible with smart phone screens, so he won’t have to take them off to type. They aren’t too pricy, either, so if he loses them, you’re not out an arm and a leg.
- Stanley Classic Insulated Growler ($50)
For the beer drinker (or the iced tea drinker), this growler offers a convenient method of keeping drinks sealed and cold for up to 24 hours. It’s a simple way for him to take some of the beer with him when he visits his favorite brewery, for enjoyment at home later in the day.
- Patagonia Men’s Synchilla Snap T Fleece Pullover ($119)
This versatile wardrobe piece can be worn with casual clothes, work clothes (for some offices), and even athletic clothes. It is available in several classic colors (and prints for the more daring), and is super warm and soft – it might even take the place of his favorite hoodie!
Anything else that’s under your tree?
Cheers to this wonderful season of giving.
