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.

    • 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!

  • 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.

    • 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!

  • Kristen Jones

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

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

  • Seriously love these gift guides!

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

  • Adriana

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

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

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

  • Azanique

  • JP

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

  • omg I need Tile!! haha! My husband would thank me for gifting it to myself trust me haa

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

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

  • 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.
