Holiday Gift Guide for Men

Holiday Gift Guide For Men

It was a bit difficult to find the perfect items for this year’s holiday gift guide for men.

I find it so hard to shop for my husband.  It isn’t that he’s super picky, but when it comes to dining out, I let him choose because he’s a foodie and very particular in that department.

For the Foodie

This gift can be given to men or women, but my hubby is a foodie and it is right up his alley.  Vital Choice offers monthly subscription boxes for organic seafood.  Each month your gift recipient will receive a variety of their sustainably-caught wild seafood and deliver it right to their doorstep.

My hubby is a big fish person, especially salmon, so when we received our box his eyes were as wide as saucers! 


There are three different box styles to choose from:

  • Wild Salmon Box
  • Wild Fish Box
  • Wild Seafood Box

Each box contains at least 14+ servings.  I personally like that the website offers recipes, how to prepare the seafood, as well as Kosher and Organic certifications.  

It took him all of 20 minutes to decide what he wanted to prepare and voila – an amazing, healthy dinner!

For the Grooming Man

I have to say that when I first heard the name of this company, I did giggle.  Ballsy’s marketing is hysterical. Their tongue-in-cheek product descriptions and content in general is very creative.

If you’re looking for something for the man that likes to be well-groomed, then you need to check out GoodHead by Ballsy.

GoodHead shampoo and conditioner by Ballsy

GoodHead’s shampoo is a nourishing, growth stimulating formula harnessing the benefits of “superfoods” like quinoa and green tea.  Botanical oils like soft, smoothing argan, bracing tea tree and of course, their signature active charcoal are awesome.  The conditioner features hibiscus oil, olive oil, tea tree and SalCool (provides cooling effect and refreshing tingle) to help nourish, hydrate, strengthen and protect hair.
The shampoo and conditioner set was developed because their customers loved their other chemical-free, high-end botanical formulations.  They started asking Ballsy for a head-to-toe grooming line. Recognizing that great hair was another source of male pride, the company obliged with Goodhead! Only $24 for the Shampoo and Conditioner set!

For the Mixologist

This next gift idea is most definitely unisex, but my hubby is the mixologist in the family so I’m more inclined to add it to this gift list.
One pet peeve I have every time with my old cocktail shaker is that I can never get the lid off.  I literally break a nail each time I do so.  Sometimes I just leave it in the sink for the hubby to tackle.  
Did you know that Prohibition was lifted on December 5, 1933, ending 13 years, 10 months, 19 days, 17 hours, and 32.5 dry minutes?!
Shaker 33 professes that President Franklin D. Roosevelt promptly declared, “What America needs now is a drink.”

Shaker 33 has been dubbed the best cocktail shaker since the prohibition, and although I was not present for this time in history, I can see why.  It is super easy to open, leak proof, pours super smooth, and dishwasher safe.

Choose from either the frosted or black version, both equally awesome.  

For the Music Lover

One gift that keeps on giving, and is something that everyone in the family can use, is a WiFi-enabled sound system.  We love our Sonos system.

Start out with one speaker and build from there.  We have one in our family room, office, living room, outdoors, master bedroom, and master bathroom.  Pick the playlist you’d like from either your smartphone’s library, Pandora, SIRIUS XM, or Google Play.  Then, pick where you want to hear the tunes.  

When the boys are swimming outside, we play their Top 20.  Inside we are playing (at the same time) another playlist.  Everyone’s happy!

Another great thing about the Sonos system is that you you can build upon it, so for each upcoming holiday you can gift another speaker!
