gift ideas for the 'hard to shop for'


I don’t know about you guys, but I feel like my dad, father-in-law and even husband are some of the hardest people to shop for on my list haha. We all have those people on our list that we have no clue what to buy, sooo end up resorting to a giftcard or another easy / generic gift. Today I wanted to round up tons of creative gift ideas from Walmart for you guys, specifically for the guys in your life who are tricky to shop for!



for the fitness + activity lover

Click or tap on any product below to shop directly!


I love these gift ideas above because they are great for the guy in your life who loves sports AND/OR the guy who loves games! I think these are all so fun and creative and help encourage your guy to get outdoors or do something active.

These adjustable dumbells are definitely a splurge, but we had these in our home gym in Boulder and I LOVED them! You don’t have to invest in an entire rack of dumbbells because this one set goes from 5lbs all the way up to 52.5!

I think this poker table is such a fun gift idea and i love that it actually folds up small, so you don’t have to worry about whether or not your gift recipient has space for it.

Golf balls ALWAYS make a great stocking stuffer for the guy in your life who likes to golf! Year after year this is a foolproof gift for Michael (and his mom and dad!)


for the outdoor enthusiast

Click or tap on any product below to shop directly!


I definitely had my dad in mind for the gift ideas above – he is ALL about being outdoors, his yard, flowerbeds etc! I feel like we all have that “green thumb” person in our life haha (I wish it was me!).

This garden kit is such a great under $20 gift idea that allows you to plant and grow your own herbs, right in your kitchen window! I also appreciate that the instructiosn for this kit are super easy and clear and the packaging is really pretty!

I have heard great things about this outdoor air fryer and it would make a great gift for the guy in your life who appreciates grilling / being outside! It’s called the 7-in-1 because it can actually air fry, bake, roast, convection, broil, dehydrate, or smoke all your favorite foods!

This basket planter is a great gift for anyone who is trying to spruce up their patio or add some color to the front porch! It looks pretty, and it’s super sturdy + great quality!

This mini electric fireplace is actually on MY wishlist haha. It’s great for bringing outside on the porch on a chilly night, keeping it on your office, or anywhere else around the house because it’s super portable! (This is a great gift for the outdoorsy type but ALSO anyone on your list who is always cold haha).



why we love Walmart for holiday shopping

I love these two gift round-ups from Walmart because I think these gifts show a lot of thought and creativity! My shopping experience with Walmart lately has also been more convenient than ever. I love that they have express delivery as an option, and curbside pickup! Walmart is also such a great shopping destination for the holidays because they have such a HUGE variety / assortment of gift ideas for all different budgets!


Hope these two gift guides make your Christmas shopping a little bit easier, for any outdoorsy type or fitness enthusiast on your list!

Thanks for reading!
