Gift Guide: For Guys

Guys can either be really easy to buy for or really hard. I have lots to buy for- husband, three brothers and the most impossible fella to buy for, my Dad-the Bermuda Triangle of gift giving (a straight, male designer who likes watching football and antiquing in equal measure…and has everything to boot).  Here are some idea to help you find something good (or at least funny) for those dear men in our lives.

Guys and their gadgets…dress up that iPad of his with this tough but chic leather cover


If he likes a cocktail or three, this bar set is tough but lovely to look at- pair it with a nice bottle of his favorite spirits, like Pappy Von Winkles Bourbon Whiskey (I’m told it’s the best)

Or perhaps your guy is more of a wine drinker, but wants to fit in with his beer guzzling friends? How about this “wine mug“?

I blogged about these before, but I still ADORE them.  F.Rock crafts breifcases/messenger bags of suiting fabric and recycled leathers that you can buy ready made or custom make yourself!

I personally think everyone should read Jon Krakauer’s book about Pat Tillman, but particularly men.  It’s an incredible story and every guy I know I’ve told to read it has loved it.

These pencils with quotes from Anchorman and The Office are so perfect for my husband…and probably yours too. I don;t KNOW a guy who doesn’t like Will Ferrell or shoots a “that’s what she said” every now and again. Awesome stocking stuffer!

Another great stocking stuffer that really is for you but helps him immensely are these “get the hint” stickers. So you won’t end up faking a smile when you open an Xbox on Christmas morning (this happened to me).


Every guy needs a great blazer or two- I love this classic two button navy one from J.Crew – paired with jeans and a dress shirt it’s perfection.

I keep trying to get my husband to wear a scarf. I managed to get him into cardigans this year (HUGE success) but the scarf is proving to be a tougher nut to crack. I love these plaid cashmere ones from Bonobos with adorable names. And just for inspiration- here’s Jake in a scarf. See! So cute!

This cracked me up- a hankerchief made with some super silver lining that renders cell phones unable to receive calls or texts. So perfect for the guy who never gets off his phone.

These bottle openers are made from the parquet floors of either the Boston Garden or Madison Square GArden- a fun little thing to add to a guy’s bar.

If he works out in ratty old shirts, treat him to an upgrade with this cool looking, more high tech Lululemon shirt so he can focus on getting that six pack for YOU. (And maybe convince him to try yoga- tell him Tom Brady does it.)

And this last little gift is just too perfect- a pizza saw to cut pizza with manly gusto. Hilarious.

  1. I’ve been struggling to come up with ideas for one of my best male friends and that wine mug would be perfect. I just might have to get the “That’s What She Said” pencils for all my friends, haha. Thanks for the good ideas!

  2. Erin these are all fun gifts, in fact i am ordering the ipad cover for my UCLA graduating son.We got him an ipad for Christmas and this will be perfect!!! Thank you. Love the pizza cutter too fun. I was just reading comments on my own blog that I did today and a reader said my post reminded them of YOU!! That made me come right over and see your amazing blog. I found a great Sunburst necklace for Christmas and it is on my wish list, she said that it reminded her of YOU!! Come and take a peek, I think she is right! You would look amazing in this fun little find for under $50. I do love a bargain, Merry Christmas,

  3. I, too, am a woman in a man’s world! So many boys, big and small, in my life! So…really love your list, but the one thing my husband needs is that phone hankie. He is always on his blackberry or phone! UGH!

  4. Great gift guide! my sister-in-law wants a pizza stone, so the pizza saw will be the perfect “side” gift for my brother-in-law. Also he constantly quotes Anchorman, so those pencils are a must have!

  5. this is a fantastic list! THANK YOU so much for including our pencils! I love that pizza cutter and well, every item in here! – Bridgette (aka earmark)

  6. Ok, I just ordered those pencils…they are perfect for my husband who half jokingly (I think) told me he was “kind of a big deal” on our first date. They will make the perfect stocking stuffer.

    thanks for the great gift ideas!

  7. great list erin! I have that same problem getting my husband to just wear a scarf! he will be getting those pencils too hehe :)

  8. This is the best gift guide for guys I’ve seen in a long time–or ever. Most are too impractical or filled with gifts for guys that don’t exist in reality. I, too, have three (very different) brothers and a dad who’s hard to buy for, and one or more of your ideas are perfect for each of them. Thank you!

  9. I almost think I like the guys’ lists better than the girls because they are so much harder to shop for. Some great ideas here. You’ve inspired me – I think I’ll do another next week.

  10. Great guide – I can honestly say I love all of these. I wear a scarf everyday…so enough with the I don’t wear the scarf…I just tie it the way you want…:)

  11. I scooped up some of those pencils at the West Elm/Etsy event a few weeks ago! Love the idea of the Boston Garden bottle openers too.

  12. I love the ideas! I posted my ‘top 10 gifts for him’ on my blog as well. Check ’em out if you get the chance.


  13. Love those suggestion stickers :) That hankerchief would also be perfect for my glued-to-his-phone husband and I think he would get a kick out of those pencils.

    I think those bottle openers are great, too–I featured them in a Valentine’s Day gift guide awhile back. I great gift for a sports fan!

  14. Apologies with regards to reviving a ancient blog post but I could not stop myself. This ended up being one of the most educational blog posts on Feather Duvet Ive read in a rather long period and has made it easier for myself select the appropriate purchase. Thanks to the blogger for creating such a uninteresting theme enjoyable and helpful.

  15. Erin – you are AWESOME!! Thank you so much for the inclusion!! F. Rock has a slew of new bags and new photos on the site. The Brattle and iPad bag have, hands down, been the top sellers this year with Boston men! Yaay shopping for our fabulous men this holiday!

    Hope you’ll swing by the SoWa Holiday market this weekend and say hi!
