HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE FOR MEN

mengiftguide

Last week I polled my Instagram audience on what blog posts they would like to see for the holiday season. By far a Men’s Gift Guide was the most requested post. I can’t say that I am surprised because I too struggle with gift ideas for Drew every birthday, anniversary and Christmas. I had him sit down with me to give me ideas on what men might want or need this holiday season. Some of these gifts are affiliated links and some are not. I feel that is important to mention because I want to put out great content regardless of whether I receive a commission or not. I don’t want you to miss out on nailing it in the gift department this year just for the sake of a few extra dollars for me. Now that that is out of the way, let’s get this started!

YETI TUNDRA HAUL

This was the talk of the town among my male neighbors recently. Apparently having a Yeti on wheels is a new design and function after being heavily requested by Yeti’s consumer base. If you have a man who loves Yeti, then this new cooler might just be for him!

SOLO STOVE

Tried and true here at the Somplasky residence, this portable fire pit/stove comes highly recommended. Since moving to North Carolina we have used this a ton for Friday night fun with our neighbors. We sit it on the street and all sit around it keeping comfortably warm. I don’t know all the technical terms but there’s something with the air flow in this that prevents it from putting off alot of smoke but it still kicks off a lot of heat. We use it out on our back patio too and just love the ease and portability of this thing. They also have small camping ones for cooking and recently launched more products on their website.

BENCHMADE GRIPTILIAN KNIFE

I don’t know a ton about this one either other then it comes highly recommended by Drew. If your husband likes to carry a pocket knife then this one might just be the one for him. Drew prefers the smooth blade and matte finish.

PATAGONIA HEADWAY MLC BAG

Drew also owns this bag and has for almost 2 years. It is perfect for long weekends however Drew has packed a weeks worth of clothes in this thing. It has the same amount of space and capacity as a traditional carry on bag but Drew likes that this allows him to be hands free. It can be worn messenger or backpack style. He also likes that it can be folded up and stored away when you get to where ever your going.

ICE MULE COOLERS

I have heard wonderful things about this bag from fellow bloggers The Spoiled Home. The coolest feature is that this bag is fully waterproof and floats! If your man frequents the lake or beach each summer then this might just be the perfect cooler for hi

PATAGONIA WATERPROOF DOWN JACKET

Like most of us women, men seem to love most Patagonia products. Drew has this Patagonia jacket already but he would like something a little lighter weight and less bulky. He liked a few from the Nordstrom website so I will list those here too!

Nano Puffer

Bomber Jacket (super stylish!)

Woolyester (dress this one up or down)

APPLE AIRPODS

Full transparency here, Drew bought these for me for my birthday this past June so that I had a wireless pair for the gym. Since I haven’t stepped foot in the gym since June, he now uses them. He likes them a lot more then he thought he would since he used to wear the larger bose type headphones. He says these are actually easier all around. He also said this pair by is similar in concept.

SUREFIRE FLASHLIGHT

These are pocket size flashlights that carry a big punch so to speak. Drew loves these but obviously they come with a heavy price tag. He says its the type of gift that most men would appreciate yet rarely would buy for themselves.

I am going to add products below along the way I see them but feel good about my initial list. Happy shopping everyone!

BARBELL APPAREL

Drew loves and swears by these jeans and chinos for men. He says they’re comfortable and provide the quad room that his legs need without a huge waistline to go with. If your man struggles to find jeans that fit, these are worth checking out! I know they runs deals and promos so sign up for their emails and see what they have coming up for the holiday season.
