Are you struggling to give your partner gift ideas to get you? Or are you struggling to buy the perfect gift for the man in your life? Keep reading, I've done all the research and have the gift guide just for you!

Pro-tip for the guys reading: click copy below to forward this to your significant other 😉



 

Table of Contents

Before we get started, let me address the obvious: Us men are impossible to shop for. I’ll admit it. If we want something, we typically buy it. But there is a catch to that. There are categories in which we won’t buy it, but we would still love to upgrade! For example:

  • We can’t justify the expense. My blue jeans from two decades ago still kind of fit and have holes in them.
  • We didn’t know it existed.

 

WHAT MAKES A GREAT GIFT?

To step into the mindset of giving the perfect gift, you've got to think about two key things:

  • How can I show it was thoughtful?
  • What is something they would never buy for themselves?

    FOR THE GUY WHO LIKES TO COOK

     

    VACUUM SEALER

    File this under the "I would never buy this for myself but it makes a great gift" category.

    Check Price on Amazon

     

     

     

    SOUS VIDE

    Sous Vide is French for "Meat Jacuzzi." I'm kidding, but it checks out. A sous vide slowly pre-cooks your meat inside a vacuum sealed bag (see above) or a simple zip locked bag to the perfect temperature. Then your CGO (Chief Grilling Officer) can sear it on the grill as a finishing touch. Top tier steakhouses, catering company's and even Chipotle have used this method for years.

    DIGITAL MEAT THERMOMETER

    Digital Meat Thermometer. This is something I always had a hard time justifying the spend, because my cheap analog one will "get the job done" making this a perfect gift for your Chief Grill Officer.

    Check Price on amazon

     

    FOR THE TECHY GUY

    MULTI CHARGING CABLE

    I discovered this thing while I was writing this blog, ordered it, and holy smokes is it everything I imagined. Declutter your kitchen or charging station, highly recommend.

    SMART LED LIGHTS

    led lights phone and controller

     

    From the moment men stepped foot on this planet, we started putting LED lights any and everywhere. I think, or maybe that's just me? These help set and change the vibe, and can even be controlled from your phone!

    EUFY SECURITY CAMERA

    Speaking of primal man stuff, protecting his home is on top of every guys priority list. I have these all over my home, and I love the Eufy app because I can monitor all of them from one screen.

    Check Price on amazon

     

     

    DIGITAL TIRE PRESSURE GAUGE

    Tire Pressure Gauges are like umbrellas, when you finally need it you can't find it. Boom, here you go.

    Check Price on amazon

     

     

    PORTABLE SPEAKER

    This isn't your average portable speaker, this thing bumps loud, is water proof, and you can charge your phone at the pool party.

    Check Price on amazon

     

     

    PHONE CHARGERS

    2 Pack, 6 foot, and fast charging. My phone chargers always magically disappear, I'm not pointing figures...but if your partner is like mine this would be a perfect gift.

    JORD WOOD WATCH

    The Wood Conway Chronograph Watch. This is absolutely my favorite watch, and I cannot go anywhere without someone complimenting it. I’m probably not even cool enough to wear this versatile men’s time piece, but thank you Jord for graciously allowing me to do so.

    CHUBBIES SWIM TRUNKS

    When your man shows up anywhere in a pair of Chubbies he will instantly become the center of the party. Fun, vibrant, and beyond comfortable. Bonus: buy yourself a matching pair, because girl you deserve it.

    MDRIVE START PROTEIN

    GERBER POCKET KNIFE

     

    Anything from Gerber is quality, and nothing makes a guy feel more manly than that moment someone asks “Does anyone have a knife?” and he heroically pulls out his Gerber to save the day. Or use it to simply open Christmas gifts.

    TECHY WINTER GLOVES

    The inner dad in me can't hold back from saying "You can't shovel sunshine" as I'm sitting at my office in sunny Scottsdale. However, spending 20 years of my life in the midwest, I can confidently say these gloves are a game changer. Stay warm, and still use your touch screen phone.

    FOR THE GUY WHO HAS EVERYTHING

     

    FUJIFILM INSTAX MINI

     

    Let's be honest, this may be one of those gifts you buy for him and steal immediately. For the longest time, instant film was nearly inaccessible due to its incredibly high cost. This camera looks cool and costs much less for the unit and film.

    Check Price on amazon

     

    STEELIE MAGNETIC CELL PHONE MOUNT

    I was given mine as a gift years ago, and now I can't live without it. “The world’s greatest mobile device holder” is the truth. You can bring this version into any car, and the magnet that attaches to your phone is incredibly strong.

    3D PRINTER

    3D Printer. Do you ever strategically help your partner order at restaurants so you can "try" some of it later? I see you, and hear me out on this. He can download and print you plastic cookie cutters for every occasion, toys and other décor for your home. I have become a 3D printing addict, and my wife benefits because I can help her make customize almost anything.

    COOLING MATTRESS TOPPER

    Besides snoring loudly, guys seem to all sleep hot. This is a memory foam topper with gel-infused cooling features that has a ton of great reviews and a 10 year warranty.

    DJI MINI 2 DRONE

    Do you and your partner love adventures? Capture your next vacation with this 4k Drone from the industry leader DJI. I have this drone and its newer version, and highly recommend both.
