gift ideas for him


This is by far one of my most requested blog posts every holiday season! Shopping for your hubs, dad, brother…or the men in your life can be so tricky. Today I’ve rounded up tons of gift ideas for lots of different types of dudes – the guy who’s into fashion, the outdoorsy type, the whiskey drinker, the athlete, the traveler, and more! All of the products I’m sharing are either gifts I’ve gotten for Michael before and he LOVED, or stuff he already has and uses all the time!

noise cancelling headphones | button down dress shirt | dopp kit | rolling suitcase | nike killshot sneakers | airpods | lululemon pants |  wool knit henley | ugg slippers | crew sweatshirt | backpack | outdoor voices sunday shorts | yeti tumbler mug | patagonia quarter zip | whiskey tumblers + drink stones | alpine air crewneck sweater



Mizzen + Main shirt

Michael and I are both OBSESSED with Mizzen + Main shirts! We’ve also gifted them to both of our dads who love them as well! They are basically moisture-wicking dress shirts, that you never have to take to the dry cleaner. You can throw them in the washer / dryer and they also never wrinkle. If your man hasn’t been introduced to Mizzen + Main yet, he will thank you for this gift forever! Michael has at least 6 of these shirts and wears them all the time!


Michael and I have both had airpods for a few years now and LOVE them. Ours stay in great when we workout (this is what I wear on all of my runs), but you can also use them for everyday. They are wireless + bluetooth and the quality is great! They also come in a charging case which is so convenient!

Ugg Slippers

Okay, this was a gift I wasn’t completely sure about when I first got them for Michael and they’ve ended up being one of his favorite gifts ever. I wasn’t sure how often he’d wear them but he wears them almost daily in the fall and winter! These would make for a great gift for your dad or husband that he would have for years to come!


Lululemon ABC Pant

This pant is what originally got Michael hooked on Lululemon. We were just telling my sister and brother-in-law about them because he hadn’t experienced the magic of the ABC pant yet! These pants are SO amazing because they can be athletic, casual, or worn with a dress shirt! Michael said they are insanely comfortable and really breathable. They also fit incredibly well! This will be a gift your husband (or brother, dad etc) will wear almost every day of the week! Michael is on his 3rd pair!

Herschel Supply Backpack

Michael got this backpack during the Nordstrom sale and LOVES it! It’s a great price point for a high quality backpack that will last for years. This is a great gift idea for a guy who likes to travel or needs something for a commute to work! It holds a TON but doesn’t look big and bulky!


Patagonia Quarter Zip

If the guy(s) you’re shopping for don’t have a patagonia pullover yet, this makes for the BEST gift idea for just about any guy on your list! The quality will last for years to come, it’s so warm and comfortable, and can be worn with jeans or athletic wear. Michael wears his ALL the time and has had it for years (the photo above is from the nordstrom sale a few years ago when he first bought it). This would make for a great gift for the athletic guy in your life, someone who lives somewhere cold, and pretty much everything in between. I’ve yet to meet a guy that doesn’t love this pullover.

Wool knit henley

I don’t know about your husband but Michael is obsessed with henley shirts, especially really soft ones. Literally, it’s like he can never have enough lol. We both LOVE this brand of henley and it’s currently on sale!

Outdoor Voices sunday short

Okay I couldn’t believe that I couldn’t find a pic of Michael in these shorts because he legit LIVES in them! They are the perfect mix between athletic and cozy. Michael has them in 3 colors and I pretty much get him a new pair for every holiday because he wears them so often haha.

Metal Vent Tech Polo

One of Michael’s all time favorite polos that he owns in several colors. It’s super breathable and has “anti-stink” technology…so your man could wear it to workout or for everyday. (Michael wears his for ‘everyday’ – going to dinner, meeting up with friends, etc). The quality is amazing. He got his first one of these polos a few years ago and it’s still in perfect condition!

I also did a blog post on Lululemon Christmas gift ideas for him and her, so make sure to check that post out here to get more ideas! And Michael put together a round-up of amazon gift ideas for him which you can find here! Thanks for reading!
