Christmas Gift Guide: 5 Picks for Him

We’re officially less than a month away from Christmas! And that means the scramble to find the perfect gift(s) is on! But don’t worry, I have you guys covered. Today kicks off the first of my four annual gift guides (for him, her, kids, and dogs)!

I typically kick the series off with picks for the ladies, but I feel like guys are always the toughest to shop for, so this year I’m switching things up a bit and starting with them! So without further ado, here are this year’s 5 picks for him.

Amazon Echo Dot

The Echo Dot (on sale for $30!) is fantastic for techies! You can ask it questions, play music, make phone calls, send/receive messages, get news updates, control your home’s smart devices, and more! I was able to test this out when visiting family over Thanksgiving and also heard tons of great things about it from everyday users!


Tile Mate

If you’re shopping for a guy who seems to forget where he put things often (I’m talking wallet, keys, etc.), Tile Mate ($25) is the perfect gift! You just attach the tile to the thing(s) you lose most and when you can’t find them, use the app on your phone to track ’em down. And if you lose your phone, this can help you find it too!

Star Wars Cookie Cutters

Ok so the guy(s) in your life might not be baking the cookies, but they’ll still appreciate these fun Star Wars cookie cutters ($29)! Plus, these are the perfect accessory for a Star Wars party with the release of the new movie just around the corner.


Bluetooth Record Player

I love that record players are making a comeback! For the music lover(s) in your life, pick up this awesome bluetooth record player ($40) that lets you play tunes from a record or from your phone! Such a fun way to get the best of both worlds when it comes to listening to tunes.

Whiskey Stones Gift Set

The Whiskey Stones gift set ($45) is a great gift for whiskey drinkers. Not only does it come in a classy box, but it also features a set of glasses and whiskey stones to keep drinks fresh, rather than getting watered down with ice cubes!

    Such a great group of gifts. Guys are definitely the hardest to buy things for. I love, love, love those Star Wars cookie cutters. My husband and son can’t wait to see the movie, so that would be super cute with a pair of tickets. I also love that records are making a comeback. Love that player.

    • November 29, 2017 / 9:58 PM

      That would be a great gift idea! Do you think you’ll venture out on opening day for it? And YES for record players! It’s so cool to see modern albums out in record form too!

  2. November 29, 2017 / 6:11 PM

    Love your picks here, girl! I got the echo dot for my dad, and I’m so excited because I know it’s something he’s going to love and use! Another good pick is a high quality shaving set for a brother or your husband! You can never go wrong with good products.

    • November 29, 2017 / 10:34 PM

      Thanks, Kiara! It’s the best when you find gifts you know the recipient will love – so glad you found that for your dad! A shaving kit is a great idea too!

    These are such great gift options! Gifts for dudes are seriously the hardest to buy–this is perfect!

    • November 29, 2017 / 9:58 PM

      Thanks, Kristen! I couldn’t agree more! I don’t know why they think we’re the tough ones to shop for, haha.

  4. November 29, 2017 / 8:31 PM

    Seriously love these gift guides!

    • November 29, 2017 / 9:58 PM

      I hope you found some good ideas for the guys in your life!

    I love these ideas! The Tile trackers are really a life saver – I gifted them last season and plan to again this year!

    • November 29, 2017 / 10:07 PM

      Thanks, Adriana! I think they’re so handy too – it’s so easy to lose and/or forget where you put things!

  6. November 29, 2017 / 11:13 PM

    Oh my goodness! I need those Star Wars cookie cutters. How cute!

    • December 22, 2017 / 9:21 PM

      Aren’t they?! So fun to decorate too!

    I’ve heard so many great things about the Echo Dot! Such a great gift.

    -xo, Azanique |

    • December 26, 2017 / 12:03 PM

      Same! I think it’d definitely come in handy a lot!

  8. November 29, 2017 / 11:34 PM

    So many great options here! My husband needs that Tile thing immediately.

    • December 26, 2017 / 12:02 PM

      Haha, my parents got them for Christmas this year! Hopefully it helps with them forgetting where they put things!

  9. November 30, 2017 / 12:31 AM

    Love your picks! My fiancé would love the whiskey stone set!

    • December 26, 2017 / 12:02 PM

      Thank you! Nobody likes watered down whiskey, so I think it’s a good one!

    I think I need to get that Tile Mate for Uncle Dave! It will get him out a few minutes earlier in the morning! :-)

    • December 26, 2017 / 12:03 PM

      Haha, yes! My parents got them for Christmas and I think it’ll definitely help with finding the keys faster when they’re trying to leave!

    • December 26, 2017 / 12:05 PM

      I know that feeling, haha. I think they’d definitely be helpful – especially with figuring out where the keys are!

  11. November 30, 2017 / 9:28 AM

    Those Star Wars cookie cutters are so cute! And good call on the whiskey stones, nobody wants watered down whiskey!

    • December 26, 2017 / 9:32 PM

      Thanks, Michelle! My thoughts exactly :)

  12. November 30, 2017 / 10:24 AM

    Tile mate looks exactly what my boyfriend needs! And probably it would be good for me too hahaha.

    • December 26, 2017 / 9:37 PM

      It definitely cuts down on the time it takes to find things! I’m always scrambling to find keys, glasses, etc. when I’m running late and trying to get out the door, haha.

  13. November 30, 2017 / 11:27 AM

    These are some really fun gift ideas. Men are always the hardest to shop for but I always love finding my husband non traditional, silly gifts, too! We’d both have a blast with those Star Wars cookie cutters.

    • December 26, 2017 / 12:05 PM

      Thanks, Leslie! I totally agree. I think silly gifts are a must (of course along with some practical ones)!

  14. November 30, 2017 / 11:46 AM

    Such great ideas!! Ive been thinking of getting tile for my bf he looses his keys all the time!

    • December 26, 2017 / 9:26 PM

      Thanks, Amy! I think it’s a must-have for forgetful people :)

  15. November 30, 2017 / 3:28 PM

    I am SO excited that record players are coming back!!!!!

    • December 22, 2017 / 9:22 PM

      Me too! I used to love when my grandma played music on hers when I was little. So much nostalgia!

  16. November 30, 2017 / 4:17 PM

    I totally almost got that Tile thing for my dad!

    • December 22, 2017 / 9:22 PM

      I think it’s great for forgetfulness :) What did you end up getting him instead?

      • December 22, 2017 / 10:10 PM

        A Fitbit haha- he said he’d rather have that.

  17. November 30, 2017 / 5:28 PM

    My boyfriend would LOVE that record player!

  18. November 30, 2017 / 11:43 PM

    These are all super fun gifts. My bf is always loosing his keys, I think he needs tile haha!

    • December 26, 2017 / 9:40 PM

      He absolutely does, haha. Hopefully he got one for Christmas!

    The echo dot is a great suggestion. Such a cool thing!

    • December 26, 2017 / 9:40 PM

      Thank you! I think it’s so fun – I just set mine up!

    The Amazon Echo is so cool! I think it would be a great gift for my brother, especially if it’s on sale!

    • December 26, 2017 / 9:41 PM

      I think so too! We had a few of them under the tree for family members this year – everyone was so excited!

    what’s funny is I’m pretty sure my boyfriend plans on buying -me- the tile because I’m constantly “misplacing” my keys & phone – love your picks, girl! x, nicole //

    • December 26, 2017 / 9:42 PM

      Haha I think it’s a good one for everyone! I find I’m always unable to find things when I’m running behind and trying to get out the door!

  22. December 3, 2017 / 12:02 AM

    We just got our second Echo Dot and a record player so I guess I’m on the right track! Haha I’m obsessed with them both!

    • December 22, 2017 / 9:23 PM

      Great minds think alike :)

    The whiskey set is gorgeous! My boyfriend is just starting to get into whiskey so that would be the perfect gift for him.

    • December 26, 2017 / 9:31 PM

      Absolutely! I had already shopped for my dad but his birthday is coming up so I think I’m going to get the set for him!

  24. December 4, 2017 / 9:13 AM

    All of these are SO perfect for my boyfriend. Except the tile key tracker thing – I bought him something similar last year and he lost all of the trackers haha I can’t even with him sometimes!

    • December 26, 2017 / 9:31 PM

      Oh no! How does that even happen? Haha.

  25. December 4, 2017 / 2:01 PM

    My boyfriend really wants Airpods for Christmas! Great ideas!

    • December 26, 2017 / 9:30 PM

      Thanks, Kayla! I hope Santa brought everything on both of your lists :)

    I’m getting the tile thing for my parents for christmas because they constantly lose their keys or their other items, it’s such a great purchase!

    Logan |

    • December 26, 2017 / 9:30 PM

      Oh for sure! My parents got them this year too – it’ll definitely come in handy!

    I love my Tile and it’s such a great idea for the hubby too!

    • December 26, 2017 / 9:29 PM

      So glad to hear it :)

  28. December 11, 2017 / 11:00 AM

    I bought the tile for my boyfriend because he’s always losing his keys! This is such a great gift list!

    • December 22, 2017 / 9:23 PM

      Thanks, Deborah! I hope the Tile helps him out!
