Buying Christmas gifts is probably one of my favorite things to do. It’s so fun to ask everyone what they want and then try hunting down some deals so we could make it happen. This year everything has been going well. The kids are at an easy age to shop for. Hailey wants everything she sees. Kenny just wants a ball (seriously, that’s all he ever plays with) and Jonathan is 10 week old. I’m also super easy to shop for. All I ever ask for is clothes, shoes, or jewelry. But then there is Ryan.
Where do I even begin?
Ryan is a bit complicated, which is actually quite interesting since he is the simplest person I’ve ever met. He is so easygoing. But shopping for him is so hard. I can never surprise him with a gift because I just ask him what he wants. I’ve been playing it safe. Well, not this year. I’ve done my research and I’ve come up with the top 6 gifts for men this year!
As always I’m trying to help out my lovely ladies and I hope this list makes your holiday shopping so much easier. I know that the men in our lives are super special to us and this is the time to show our appreciation.
TOP 6 GIFTS FOR MEN
- A Cologne Gift Set
I remember my mom buying my dad cologne for Christmas many, many years. Now, I know why. There are men who like to smell good and it’s a way of expressing themselves. You can look at it as a confidence booster. And we ALL know women love when their man smells amazing. If you’re having trouble finding a gift set, you should try the Nautica Voyage 3 Piece Gift Set. It is one of the top rated colognes out there. Not only is it affordable, but the men love it! Find it here.
- Fitness Tracker
Some men are all about their health and maintaining their bodies. Why not grab them something that is going to enhance their performance and keep them focused on their goals? This would be a perfect gift for a man who is maybe wanting to start their fitness journey. An affordable and well-rated fitness tracker is the Fitbit Blaze Smart Fitness Watch. It includes all-day activity and sleep tracking, smartphone notifications and reminders to move throughout your day. It also has interchangeable bands and frames and customizable clock faces on a hi-resolution color touchscreen. Find it here.
Who’s got a handy man in their life? This one is for you! This would be awesome for someone heading off to college soon or even for those that may already have some tools. Tools can be super expensive so I think purchasing a tool kit may be the go-to for this gift. The Black+Decker Drill and Project Kit is a great deal. The kit contains 68 hand tools and accessories, as well as a drill, the battery, and a carrying bag. It’s small enough to keep in the car as a back-up or in the garage for home projects. Find it here.
I know a lot of men who enjoy electronics. Most men have a video game console and a ton of games that they like to play on their free time. Others just enjoy spending time in their man caves watching the football game with their friends. Whichever it is, they can’t do it without a television. The other day my husband’s grandmother got a new TV. You can just imagine the look on Ryan’s face. He was basically drooling over it. Ladies, if he was definitely on the nice list this year, go big or go home! Check out LG’s 55 Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV. This TV will give you the most lifelike picture out there, access to your favorite apps, and has built in Wi-Fi. Find it here.
Since we’ve moved to Wisconsin, I’ve met quite a few hunters. If there is anything I’ve learned, it’s that they LOVE their hunting gear. They don’t only wear it out to go hunting, but they use it throughout the year as a fashion statement. Now, I don’t know a lot about hunting but if that’s what the men like, then we have to shop for it. For those that are experienced in this department you will probably have no problem looking for something. Others who need a little bit of help, you should check out this awesome Legendary Whitetails Timber Line Insulated Softshell. This jacket is so warm and completely waterproof. It’s a great choice if you want him to look good and stay warm throughout the season! Find it here.
Last but not least, there are men who like the finer things in life. They may wear a suit and tie to work or just enjoy dressing up on the weekends. Maybe they just enjoy having a nice piece of jewelry on at all times. Well, I’ve got the perfect gift for them – Kenneth Cole New York Men’s Stainless Steel Diamond-Accented Watch. This watch looks amazing on and best of all, it won’t break the bank. That’s right! You can get an affordable gift for him even when he has expensive taste! Find it here.
