These are my best gift ideas for the men in your life! Men can be the most difficult for us ladies to buy for, so hopefully this will make your task a little bit easier.
Holiday Gift Ideas for Him
CM4 Q Card Case iPhone Wallet | $39.99
I’m in love with this iPhone case! It holds your phone plus up to three cards (your license and two credit cards works perfectly for me). This is an awesome gift for the techie in your life (and it’s a great stocking stuffer!). Check out this quick video I made that shows you how easy this is to use.This gift is actually great for men or women, but I think it’s particularly a good one for men because they don’t tend to like to carry a wallet. This is all-in-one!
I bought these for my husband a couple years ago, and he wears them all summer long. They are supremely comfortable, but they also have a bottle opener on the bottom — convenient, eh!? You get quite a wide variety of reactions from the people at the party when you remove your flip flop to pop open a bottle of beer. It’s definitely a conversation starter, ha! Even if the bottle opener’s not your thing, the quick-drying synthetic nubuck strap, the contoured footbed and thick, foamy, molded EVA sole with added arch support along with under-heel airbag cushioning will keep your man comfy as well as stylin’. They also come up to size 17.
This is tool organizer is an awesome gift for the handyman in your life, even if he’s just a weekend hobbyist. It will keep all his tools neatly in one place and fits into any standard 5-gallon bucket.
I know the boys in my house would love this DVD of the greatest moments in Phillies history from FansEdge.com. Check out FansEdge for cool gift ideas from your favorite hometown team.
This portable GPS is perfect for the weekend hiker or geocacher. It’s waterproof, easy to hold, and comes loaded with a worldwide basemap with shaded relief. The sunlight-readable, 2.2-inch color display is easy to read, and the bright orange case makes it easy to find in his bag.
Who doesn’t love going to the movies? But they aren’t exactly a cheap date these days. Give Fandango Bucks (with free shipping) — makes a great stocking stuffer, or it mails easily to those celebrating the holidays from afar.
Fellowes Powershred 63Cb Shredder | $128.47
I was sent this shredder as a part of a campaign with TheMotherhood.com for consideration in my gift guide this year. We have set it up in my office and have been using it regularly to shred mail and other documents we don’t want floating around. It works great, is so easy to use, and would make a great gift for the gadget-loving man in your life.
Find all these ideas and more on my Pinterest Board: Smart Gifts for the Men in Your Life, sponsored by TheMotherhood.com and the Fellowes 63Cb shredder.
One lucky reader will win a Fellowes Shredder to keep or give as a gift to a special someone in her life!
