I put together a big list of cool gifts for guys, in case you’re still doing some holiday shopping.
Searching for cool guy’s stuff can be a challenge, so I hope this gift guide helps fill in some gaps on your shopping list – whether your budget is $15 or $115!
When I put together the list of stocking stuffers under $25, the guys section was my most swiped up list on Instagram, which (in a very informal way) tells me, the guys gift guide was the most important list to get up. So here it is!
Over 25 gift ideas to fit your budget and your guy – boyfriends, husbands, dads, good friends, etc. The guide to cool gifts for guys starts now!
Cool Gifts for Guys (Under $25)
So we’ll start on the smaller end of things. I’ve actually already rounded up 10 cool items for guys, under $25, here: cheap stocking stuffers for men (and women, kids, toddlers, and babies).
And honestly, those gifts are great for stocking stuffers, but also just smalls gifts for neighbors / people you don’t know that well, but want to get a little something, OR just a solid gift for your main squeeze if you’re on a tight budget. We’ve all been there!
So head over to my guide for gifts under $25 for my picks for budget-friendly pressies for a guy. And while you’re there, I also have ideas for women, kids, toddlers, and babies – with 50 presents in total!
I did include a few things under $25 in the next guide too btw, just for some extra budget-friendly finds…
Cool Gifts for Guys (Under $50)
Here’s where things get interesting! At under $50 a piece, these gifts are still a good deal, but just a bit more substantial than the previous category.
You can really shop to what the guys on your list are interested in whether it be traveling, style, sports, or music. These unique gifts for men (under $50) have a little something for nearly every interest.
1. Camper’s mitten on Snow Peak $41.95
These camp mittens are pretty cool – made of fire-resistant leather to protect hands from sparks, hot pots and charcoal.
2. Catchall case on Everlane $30
The site says it’s for women, but I think it makes a really cool dopp bag for guys and girls. Love the simple design and affordability.
3. Alarm clock on Burke Decor $49
For the guy that likes to keep things old school with an actual clock that isn’t also his phone! This stylish bedside clock is also an alarm clock!
4. Kinto tumbler on 2Modern $37.50
I am obsessed with these Kinto tumblers and think it’d be a great gift for a guy that is always drinking water OR wants to keep his coffee hot on the go – to work, the gym, wherever. And if that one isn’t quite the right color, there are other colors available too.
5. Felt keychain on Plenty Mercantile $12
These felt keychains come in lots of different colors and are super affordable at just 12 bucks!
6. Food flask on MOMA $30
The fact that this is called a food flask is honestly enough reason for me to buy it. Haha. BUT this very functional gift (that also actually looks cool) is perfect for the guy that eats his lunch on the go (or takes a lunch into work but doesn’t have a lot of storage options).
7. Aesop Moroccan Neroli Post-Shave Lotion on Harrod’s $43
Everything from Aesop is lovely IMO.
8. Jason Markk Premium Shoe Cleaning Essential Kit on Mr Porter $16
This might be too practical a gift for some. BUT for guys that like to keep their sneakers and other shoes super clean, this is a good gift to throw their way.
9. David Shrigley Really Good T-Shirt on Wolf and Badger $42
If you’re wondering how you know the name David Shrigley, it’s probably because his art covers the walls of the famed London restaurant, Sketch. His art is so interesting IMO and I think it’d be cool to have a little wearable piece of art from him, for a guy OR girl!
Bonus ideas that aren’t in the roundup (but still cool gifts)…
11) Bitter Clove aperitif on Haus $35 -The packaging alone is (almost) good enough reason to buy. Right?
12) And Daughter of the Land cbd balm on Nordstrom $42 – Not sure if this is a weird gift or not…to give someone an aches and pains balm? BUT it does more than soothe aches and pains — it can also help heal your skin and keep dry lips from cracking. Plus, it’s infused with CBD and organic / fair trade ingredients. What’s not to love?
Cool Gifts for Guys (Under $100)
So many good gifts for guys in this list. Possibly even a few things that I’d want as a gift too!
1. Jump rope on Kalon Studios
Never thought I’d put a jump rope on a gift guide. But this one is really cool!
2. Felted wool slippers on Betterfelt $80
I’ve been seeing felted slippers pop up left and right, so I kinda feel like they might be this cool slipper option? And I love these personally (if they had my size, I’d buy them for me too).
They’re handmade in Nepal, out of 100% natural materials. *Available in a few colors, but have limited sizes. SO as another option, there are these, which are similar) just a little bit higher in price.
3. Coffee subscription on Stumptown starting at $16 per shipment
There are several different pricing options for this one, depending on how much coffee you want. But they start at $16 per shipment. If you know a coffee lover, who can never, ever, EVER can be without coffee in the morning, this subscription gift seems like a really good option.
4. Rhythm corduroy chore coat in sand on Bespoke Post $100
5. Norse Projects beanie on Garmentory $56
Jeff has several Norse Project beanies and sometimes I steal them when it’s really cold here (I don’t have any warm hats). They’re the best IMO. A bit more pricey, obvs, but he loves ’em. So I wanted to share.
6. FALKE ‘Tiago City’ cotton-blend socks on Mr Porter $27
These socks come in four colors and are high quality for the price point.
7. East Fork mug on East Fork $36
This mug is so popular, it sells out every time it’s in stock. So I’m thinking a lot of people can back me up on how cool this mug is to receive as a gift. Haha.
If it is sold out again, and you live in Atlanta or Asheville, you have a pretty good chance at snagging one of these. I was just at the Atlanta East Fork store over the weekend and bought a couple of mugs…and some really good smelling candles.
Odd woods candle is the best for dudes and it’s also under $100…so it fits perfectly in this under $100 section of the cool gifts for guys.
8. ‘Man of Good Taste’ collection on Simone LeBlanc $78
Everything curated from Simone LeBlanc is beautiful and this collection is no exception.
Cool Gifts for Guys (Over $100)
This category is for the splurger, or the real important guys in your life. These luxe Men’s gifts can cover all the important guys in your life like Dad or your fella. Speaking of, I hope Jeff doesn’t peek at this list. One of his gifts may or may not be on this list.
1. Skateboard on Pretend Store $435
There are definitely less expensive skateboards out there! BUT this one is almost one of a kind…The collection is limited to six, hand editioned skateboards – handcrafted from single slabs of maple and screenprinted by hand.
2. Street apron in black denim on Wolf and Badger $126
A heavy duty apron for workshop stuff and/or cooking.
3. Cast iron casserole pot on Burke Decor $315
This cast iron pot is the perfect (fancy yet rugged looking) gift for the guy who really loves to cook.
4. Waffle lounge set for men on Parachute $149
These look so cozy and comfortable! And they make them for women too!
5. Sunbuddies natural wine sunglasses on Goodhood $130
I love this color! But there are others if this isn’t quite what you’re looking for.
6. Pack and carry fireplace on Snow Peak $189.95
We just ordered this little pack and carry fireplace. Planning to use it as a mini fire pit at the house, but we also take it with us whenever we go camping, etc.
7. Bang & Olufsen (waterproof) portable wireless bluetooth speaker on Amazon $227.39
We have one of these (got it as a joint gift from my mom) and it’s awesome! We have it hanging from the peg rail in between the dining room and kitchen and the sound is great IMO. I love that you can hang it anywhere and it looks simple and cool.
8. Leather buckner backpack on Fossil $328
If you want to get a special/ expensive gift for that guy in your life who has been asking for a leather backpack, I highly recommend this one!
This is the exact backpack Jeff has owned and used for the last FOUR YEARS and it 100% gets better with age. He gets asked about it fairly regularly because it’s a timeless, simple shape AND it has no branding on it (which Jeff especially loves). It just looks like a cool, almost vintage backpack.
So there you have it. The ultimate guide to cool gifts for guys. Did you find anything that’s gonna end up under your tree? What was your favorite gift from the list?
