Shopping for the special men in your life can be a pretty daunting task if they haven't specifically outlined what kind of gifts they want, but the key is to not over-think it. The best gifts are usually things he needs but is too stubborn to buy for himself or things he'll end up using every day.
If you need some inspiration for what to get for him, the Insider Reviews team has you covered with some truly excellent gift ideas. Though you can never go wrong with a new leather wallet, Patagonia fleece, or shaving kit, we've also included some unique gifts, like a vinyl record player and smart light kit.
Check out 35 great gift ideas for men:
An incredibly comfortable onesie
We love SAXX's underwear because of its comfort and utility, and the Nightcrawler Onesie is no different. From festive patterns to silly banana prints, the Nightcrawler takes a fun and cozy approach to your typical PJs.
A classic leather wallet
A wallet doesn't have to be a boring gift when it's from Bellroy. The brand offers a great variety of designs to fit all kinds of people's personal styles or needs. From low-profile designs like the Low to RFID blocking wallets like the Apex Sleeve, there's a lot to choose from.
Cozy slippers he'll love to lounge around in or wear outside
The UGG Tasman is a wonderful option because it's incredibly warm, comfortable, and can be worn indoors and outdoors. For more slippers options, check out our guide on the best men's slippers here.
An Amazon Echo Show
The Echo Show is my personal favorite Echo because of its crisp HD display. Like every other Echo, it uses Alexa to accomplish any number of tasks, from answering questions to reordering supplies on Amazon. But in addition to Alexa's verbal response about the day's weather forecast, for example, the Echo Show displays it on its 8-inch screen.
Smart light bulbs that can create billions of lighting combinations
Philips Hue lighting not only looks cool, but it can also replicate a natural sunrise and combat the effects of seasonal sunshine deprivation. This starter kit is also compatible with Amazon's, Google's, and Apple's smart assistants.
A high-end electric razor
We've tested tons of electric razors and the Braun Series 7 is one of the best you can buy. It's the perfect grooming tool for men who prefer electric over traditional multi-blade razors.
The massage gun
The compact design of the Theragun Mini makes it easy to carry around, but don't let the small size fool you. It still packs a better punch than most massage guns around the same price.
We think the Theragun Pro is worth every pretty penny for its power and durability. It beats others on the market for its revolutionary QuietForce Technology, a feature that makes the operation of the gun far quieter than any others in the brand's lineup.
A luxurious sheet set that makes bedtime better
High-quality sheets might be the last thing on his mind, but he'll appreciate them once he has them. Brooklinen's bedsheets are some of our favorites for their comfort, feel, and overall value.
Whether you choose the Classic Core Sheets or the higher-end Luxe Hardcore Sheets, the bundles will include everything he needs to give his bed a fresh makeover. Brooklinen also sells comforters, pillows, candles, and blankets.
A weighted blanket from a beloved online mattress startup
The pressure of a weighted blanket has a soothing effect that'll reduce anxiety and help him fall asleep faster. Plus, it'll feel like he's being wrapped in a big hug.
