Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts For Him

You guys can you even believe that we're talking 'Holiday' today?  In our house we celebrate Hanukkah, which actually starts unusually early this year with the first night beginning on Thanksgiving!  It really snuck up on me this year and I've spent the better part of the past week frantically searching online for those "perfect gifts".  

This inspired me to put together a gift guide for every person you might have on your list this year.  Every Wednesday for the next several weeks, I'll be posting my top picks for all things Holiday related! 

Need a small trinket with WOW factor for a hostess gift?  I've got you covered.  You drew the name of that awkward co-worker in your office Holiday gift exchange? Yep, we're going there too.  Got a hubby/boyfie/guy in your life who is impossible to shop for?  Then today's post is for you!  This morning, I'm kicking off Typical Domestic Babes Holiday Gift Guide with a post dedicated to the all the dudes in our life.

Shop These Items:
NFL vintage subway art [all teams] {on sale here & also available here} //  Cozy knit sweater {here} //  Burberry scarf {view here} //  Tom Ford sunglasses {here} //  Tom Ford cologne {available here} //  Alexander Wang leather business card holder {here} //  4 piece shave set {view here} //  Cars coffee table book {here} // Ugg wool slippers {here} //  Golf ball embosser {available here} //  Wireless bamboo keyboard [will work w/most handheld devices too!] {view here} //  Baseball bat bottle opener made from bats used during MLB games [all teams available] {view here} //  Working man hygiene kit {here} //  Eyeglass case [monogram option available] {available here} //  Cashmere socks {get them here} //  Watch box [monogram available] {here} //  North Face gloves [features electronic fingertip for smart phones] {here} //  Whiskey stones {available here & also here} //  Monogrammed cigar cutter {here} //  Wool cable knit hat {here} //  Hand stitched leather passport cover [monogram available] {available here}

A few quick notes:

  • When buying gifts for guys, anything that can be monogrammed or engraved is a winner!  Everyone loves a personal gift :)  The golf ball embosser, eyeglass case, watch box, passport holder, and cigar cutter all offer the option of monogramming for a minimal charge.
  • If your man is a sports fan, the vintage NFL subway sign is a great option - perfect for his office / man cave!  Its available at a discounted price on One Kings Lane through the end of the week, but I also linked the original website as well.  Another great item is the baseball bat bottle opener.  They took real baseball bats used during MLB games and made nifty little bottle openers out of them {all teams are available}.  So essentially your man can pop a brewski with a bat from his hometown team!  So cool!

  • Lastly, the whiskey stones aren't just for chilling whiskey.  They can also be used for wine {ahem, ladies...} and are microwaveable as well for use in coffee, hot tea, etc to keep your beverages from cooling too quickly.  Ingenius!  I've seen these popping up all over & they are definitely going to be a hot item this year {perfect stocking stuffer!}.

A few of these fun items I have already purchased for my hubby and all of the gifts that I'll be recommending in the coming weeks are all things that I would want for myself, or gifts that I would 100% buy for others. 

I hope that you enjoyed this gift guide for guys :)  I would love to hear your comments & suggestions!

Happy Shopping!
