Best Gifts for Men
We’re all different, so there’s no right a wrong gift. Whether he’s that special man in your life, your dad, brother, a friend or colleague – you want to find something that fits the guy you’re buying the gift for. So, out of the many gift ideas that we’re giving you, only some will be appropriate. Personally, I don’t feel that all of them are that great – but others might. There’s that old saying: one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
There must be a reason why all these items are so popular and I’m sure you’ll get some inspiration from many of them.
Before you head out to do some Christmas shopping, take a read through these popular gift ideas. It will probably steer you in the right direction and, chances are, you’ll find the perfect gift among the many suggestions listed below. Whether you’re looking for a cool gift idea for around $20 or less, or perhaps, you want to splash out something that will make a big impression, there’s a lot to choose from in this list.
Leatherman Tread Bracelet
Best gift for men
Includes the following tools : #1-2 Phillips, 1/4″ box wrench, 3/16″ screwdriver, 6mm hex drive, 1/4″ hex drive, oxygen tank wrench, 3/16″ hex drive, 1/8″ hex drive, 3/16″ box wrench, 3/32″ hex drive, 3/32″ screwdriver, 1/8″ flat screwdriver, 4mm hex drive, 8mm box wrench, 3mm hex drive, 5/16″ screwdriver, 3/8″ box wrench, 1/4″ flat screwdriver, #1 Phillips, 6mm box wrench, #2 Phillips, carbide glass breaker, pick/sim card tool, cutting hook, 1/4″ socket drive, bottle opener, #2 square drive.
- Made of stainless steel.
- Total tool count is 29, including several box wrenches, screwdrivers and hex drives.
- Adjustable links can be adjusted/released with a coin.
- Air-travel friendly design.
- Sturdy, secure clasp.
Leatherman has always been great at finding innovative ways to make tools practical and portable. They’re even a bit of a fashion statement for some guys. The Tread Bracelet is certainly that – it has a cool, bold look and incorporates a bunch tools in a unique way. There are 29 mini-tools to choose from and they link together to form a bracelet, you can choose which tools to incorporate and it can be adjusted to fit any size wrist.
I’m not sure that these tools will always be that practical because they’re pretty small. I’d think for a guy who’s into outdoor hobbies like diving, mountain climbing, and cycling – this could be both practical and cool to wear.
Weber 7416 Rapidfire | Chimney Starter
Best gift for men
- Chimney starter system lights charcoal quickly and evenly
- Made from aluminized steel with a stay-cool thermoplastic handle
- Holds enough briquettes for a 22-1/2-inch kettle grill
- Cone bottom ensures a fast start; eliminates need for lighter fluid
- Measures 7-1/2 by 7-1/2 by 12 inches
Guys and our barbecues! Weber is never short of new ideas for barbecue accessories. I’m still an old-fashioned guy when it comes to building fires, so I take a primal pride in lighting my fire without any help from technology.
That’s not true for most men, however, many of my friends are avid collectors of barbecue accessories and I know many men will be ecstatic to own one of these. It makes lighting a fire hassle-free and a lot less messy.
NOCO Genius Boost Plus GB40
12V UltraSafe Lithium battery Jump Starter. If he drives then this is surely one of the best gifts for him. Not the sexiest gift but a practical one.
- Compact, yet powerful lithium jump starter rated at 1,000 Amps (7,000 Joules3S) – up to 20 jump starts on a single charge
- An ultra-safe and mistake-proof design with spark-proof technology and reverse polarity protection, which allow it to safely connect to any battery

- Recharge your personal devices on the go, like smartphones, tablets, e-watches and more – up to 4 smartphone recharges

Now here’s a practical gift idea that certainly works for me. Perhaps lacking that personal touch, a battery booster is a very generic gift. Though, I’m sure many guys will agree that something that you’re actually going to use on a regular basis is a gift that keeps on giving. Anyone who drives a car will appreciate the basic value of this powerful battery booster with quite a number of cool features – including a powerful LED light.

Man’s best friend – woof! If you’re buying a gift for a guy whose dog means the world to him, this should be something he might love. Not every guy is big on dog grooming but there are those who take it quite seriously and, for these guys, this could really win him over.
Brew-Opoly – Monopoly Game
In Brew-opoly, the goal is to buy or trade your favorite beers and increase your property value by purchasing Brews and Kegs for your monopolies. A fun twist on a classic game.
Drinking games and bar paraphernalia is always a big hit when it comes to Christmas and birthday gifts for men. Brew-Opoly looks like a fun take on the good old Monopoly board game that we all grew up with. This is another one of those gifts for the guy who likes collecting novelty items. We all know someone who will be delighted to unwrap this one.

A really fantastic product. Are you buying a gift for the guy who likes to take his music with him everywhere? Then you must take a look at the UE Wonderboom. It’s a powerful, yet compact, portable Bluetooth speaker. I like the fact that it’s waterproof, you can take it camping on a boat – basically everywhere. It’s also very affordable for what it is. You can make a big impression without spending a fortune – always cool when it comes to buying the perfect gift.
Book: The Cat Encyclopedia: Definitive Visual Guide
If anyone thought that dogs are for guys and cats are for girls, think again. Many of us animal lovers are as mad about cats as we are about dogs. In my book, any literature on animals is a fantastic thing to have. This looks like a book that’s just as much something that you can browse through and look at cool pictures, as it is an informational guide to understanding cats. I certainly wouldn’t be disappointed to find this under my tree this year.
Book: The Dog Encyclopedia: Definitive visual guide
The same as the Cat Encyclopedia, just for dogs. Just as fantastic and is just as popular, if not more.
Woodchart | San Juan Islands Wood Nautical Chart
Wonderful gift for men who love maps. This is a very unique decorative map that most people will appreciate.
- Engraved topographic map.
- Size : Large, 24.5″ x 31″
- Intricately detailed and accurate. Designed by a Professional cartographer.
- A true conversation starter. Made from laser-engraved layers of Baltic birch which are stacked to create a 3-D map.
- Ready to display. Framed in a beautiful Dark Wood Frame covered in Shatterproof glass and featuring pre-attached Hanging material on back.
This is a gift that won’t appeal to everyone, it’s something that I’d expect to have seen in my grandad’s study. A decorative and accurate map of the San Juan Islands with relief patterns giving it a realistic relief, showing the depth and contours of the land. I don’t how many guys are into this sort of thing, but there must be quite a few out there because it seems to be quite a popular gift.
Hoffman Richter HR-100 | 13-in-1 Multi-tool
Includes 13 Tools :
Needle nose spring loaded pliers, wire cutters, can opener, bottle opener, medium slotted screwdriver, small straight edge blade, metal file, large slotted screw driver, ultra safe locking mechanism, a saw, mini slotted screwdriver, Philips head screwdriver, and a large straight edge knife blade.

Now, this is something I would certainly appreciate. Any guy who’s a fan of Leatherman tools will appreciate the Hoffman Richter HR-100. It’s very much the same thing – a tough little item that unfolds into a whole lot of really useful tools. For years, multi tools, such as this one, have been one of the most popular gift ideas for men and the reason doesn’t need to be explained. It’s a guy thing.
Rockwell RK9002 JawHorse Sheetmaster
- Clamp work pieces 0 to 49-inches, particularly 8×4 plywood sheets
- Clamp up to 1 ton of force and supports a weight load up to 600 lbs.
- Versatile & hands-free workstation for clamping, supporting, and holding

As a keen DIY enthusiast and general lover of all things technical, I’ve received a whole lot of tools and accessories as gifts over the years. One must always be careful when buying this kind of gift if you don’t know much about tools. Many of the gizmos that are sold as great DIY accessories aren’t always that useful. I can tell you that this one is fantastic. It’s a sturdy portable vice jaw that’s extremely versatile. I can say from experience that any guy who likes doing DIY projects around the home or enjoys fixing old cars and other machines, will genuinely appreciate the Rockwell RK9002.

Book — So Good They Can’t Ignore You
Why Skills Trump Passion in the Quest for Work You Love. I’ve read this book and it provides a unique perspective on creating a fulfilling work life. Best gift for a man who likes to learn and grow intellectually.
“After making his case against passion, Newport sets out on a quest to discover the reality of how people end up loving what they do…”
Often self-help books can seem like a bit of an insult. They leave the recipient asking themselves: what’s wrong with me and why do you feel that I need help? So Good They Can’t Ignore You is a self-help book but it’s not one that makes a personal statement about the person that you’re buying it for. It’s really a book that gives you advice on how to enjoy your job and make a success of it.
I already love my job, so I won’t be reading this one. But so many guys might feel a little cheated out of life – feeling like they should have chosen another career. This book will provide great insight for many people and help them to enjoy what they’re doing, instead of dreaming of what they could’ve been doing.
Amazon Echo Show
Truly, an innovative home voice assistant that now also includes video to make it even more practical. Best gift for men who like to optimize their life.
- Echo Show brings you everything you love about Alexa, and now she can show you things. Watch video flash briefings, Amazon Video content, and YouTube, see music lyrics, security cameras, photos, weather forecasts, to-do and shopping lists, browse and listen to Audible audio-books, and more. All hands-free—just ask.
- Introducing a new way to be together. Make hands-free video calls to friends and family who have an Echo Show or the Alexa App, and make voice calls to anyone who has an Echo or Echo Dot.
- See lyrics on-screen with Amazon Unlimited Music. Just ask to play a song, artist or genre, and stream over Wi-Fi. Also, stream music on Pandora, Spotify, TuneIn, iHeartRadio, and more.

- With eight microphones, beam-forming technology, and noise cancellation, Echo Show hears you from any direction—even while music is playing
- Always getting smarter and adding new features, plus thousands of skills like Uber, Allrecipes, CNN, and more.
Are you buying a gift for a guy who’s an insatiable tech-junkie? In that case, he may already have the Amazon Echo Show – so just check before buying it for him. If he hasn’t already got one, he probably already has the Amazon Echo. If you’ve heard this guy refer to Alexa many times, don’t be alarmed – she isn’t his mistress or anything. She’s the voice behind Amazon Echo, which is really a voice interactive device that assists you with internet activities.
Amazon has now given Alexa a face and eyes. Okay, it’s not a real face, it’s a screen and her eyes are actually a camera. This has increased the versatility of the original Echo. Basically now you can see and not just hear. It duplicates a tablet in many ways but isn’t really a mobile device. It’s quite bulky and will only be used at home or in the office. In my opinion, this is a gift for guys who are obsessed with technology. If you already have a tablet or laptop, there are many apps that give you voice recognition and there isn’t much more that the Echo Show really brings to the party.
Natico Decision Maker and Paper Weight

In today’s modern world, there aren’t many areas where a man still displays his dominance. This antiquated ritual is still held true in many households: he who holds the remote is the man of the house.

It’s a decorative taxidermy replica that can hang on his wall. But first, he has to build it up from a kit made from recycled paper and wood, sourced from an environmentally friendly source. So it’s great for the green-conscious hobbyist.
