Our favorite gifts for men and teenage boys this holiday

Today we’re sharing our favorite picks for the men and boys in our lives. Between my Dad, my two sons, and my husband I have a lot of “boy” gifts to come up with each year! While I can think of tons of things that I’d love to receive {you can see my wish list HERE}, shopping for men can sometimes be harder. I compiled below–with Christy’s help–some easy gift ideas to help if you are still shopping for the men in your life.

Despite the hype about this brand, I will say the YETI tumbler is tops on my giving list. I didn’t think I wanted a YETI until I had one, and now I can’t imagine life without it. While these cups are pricey, there is beauty in filling a cup with ice and having your drink stay cold, all day, even in a hot car. My son takes his coffee to high school each morning (which he swears has improved his first period math grade) and my husband keeps waffling on if he really needs a YETI cooler. If your man doesn’t already have this, it’s a safe bet he’ll be happy to get one.



Tech gifts always rank high on guys lists, and things like Bluetooth earphones, speakers {we have several of these} or chargers are practical gifts. These headphones are the inexpensive version of the more expensive “real deal” ones HERE. My husband uses headphones for all his business calls now, so I know he’d love to have a pair of these.


These classic fleece shirts are another can’t go wrong gift. I purchased a heavier weight one that is more like a sweater {you can find it HERE} for my husband this year, but either would be a great gift for a guy of any age.  Also, these vests are perfect for layering, especially for men who don’t like the bulk of sweaters.

Socks may get a bad rap as a Christmas gift, but these fun socks might actually be welcome under the tree this year. Fun, colorful, socks are the trend for men who want to show the lighter side of themselves even in a conservative business environment. You can find them and many other colors/patterns HERE with free shipping.


I don’t know who wouldn’t love a pair of UGG slippers! These slippers are cozy and like most UGG products will hold up for years. For my teen with feet that are still growing, so I buy these. 




Smathers & Branson accessories make great gifts, they have something for everyone. The belt (above) is perfect for bourbon lovers or, they have stitched baseball hats too in fun themes like dogs and flags like the one below.


My boys will find these portable chargers in their stockings this year, no more fighting over chargers or using the “my phone died” excuse! These are small enough to fit in their pockets, no plug needed.

This brand is popular among younger teens, and rather then pay shipping or driving to a store you can order HERE with free shipping. This long sleeve tee is in the boy’s section, but girls could wear it too.


For the ultimate boys gift–a Nintendo Switch is the current hot game system. They go fast, so don’t wait to order if this is on your teens list this year.

This 80’s classic is having a resurgence of sorts, the Rubik’s cube is a popular pastime of both teens and kids alike right now, plus it’s a problem-solving game on top of being entertaining and maybe even just a little addicting 🙂

I hope these ideas are helpful! Don’t forget to check out our other holiday posts, they are all listed below for your holiday gift buying convenience 🙂

    This is great. But, I think Ring is also good to use in men’s gift.
