Man Gifts. Christmas.

I think guys are fun to shop for. For like one or two years, and then after that it just gets annoying.

I mean, how many power drills can a man own? Or a spherical cocktail ice cube maker? I'm so over those. Does anyone actually use them more than once? We sure didn't.

So, buying for my husband typically has me getting a little creative but I did want to share some of the items that he loves and that have been "gifting wins."

I got this Magnogrip last year, eight bucks and Prime eligible, stuck it in Ian's stocking and it has been such a winner! We have been switching out all of the old yucky door hinges in our home and this thing has been invaluable. I highly recommend this as a stocking stuffer for the guys in your life -- your man, brother-in-law, father!

We had this FastTrack system installed in our garage recently, and I honestly thought it was sort of a waste of money UNTIL I saw every single thing we own hanging up and off of the floor! What a difference.

I once saw on Hoarders (no joke) that one of the best things you can do for organizing is get things off the floor. So, even your closets? Hang things up, put things in baskets, but nothing on the floor. FastTrack really helps us feel organized and it comes with all sorts of accessories and hooks to suit your needs (strollers, bikes, rakes, shovels etc).

Available at hardware stores or HERE with Amazon  and all of the fun hooks and accessories HERE

I bought this nice smoker for Ian two birthdays ago and he still loves using it! I bought the smaller one (14") which saves you $100 -- and it's plenty big.

Ian really likes the Kiehl's Age Defender line and I buy it for him at Nordstrom since they have the best customer service and always include lots of samples that I can add to his stocking :)

I think the black packaging also looks super tough and cool. Good for that manly man.

You can find the following at Nordies:


This year, Ian asked for this book for Christmas and I think it's a great snag for less than ten dollars! Ol' Lou is full of wisdom and humor.

I hope this helps you little sweet elves shop for the man in your life! I'm all ears if you have more suggestions!

  1. Thank you to you I just primed the magnetic wristband to myself for my dad, thanks for the idea!

  2. Love these ideas and am emailing you because I need more info re: those garage tracks!

  3. This is GREAT! Thank you- I think our husbands are reaaaaaal similar ;) Love the fast track idea! And Lou is the real deal in real life... genuine guy. Have y'all tried the tiles for a lost phone or keys? Yay or Nay??

  4. One of the best things my mom actually got for J a few years ago? A bluetooth speaker! It's similar to this one and he (we!) use it daily. It's fantastic.

  5. Thanks for being so real about buying for guys; I'm so with you! I love these picks, and I think I'll have to check out the Kiehl's skincare line for my husband!

  6. Just ordered my dad the magnetic wristband, thank you!! I'm sure he'll wish he invented it :)

  7. Thanks for the Lou Holtz book suggestion! My husband got to meet him this year so he'll be thrilled to read this book.

  8. I think my husband may be the only person who uses his sphere ice cube in his whiskey ALL the time! ha! Such a good idea to hang things up... we need to do that!

  9. These are great non-traditional ideas! Love that manogrip, its genius!

  10. So, so true about the round ice cubes. Been there, done that. I picked up some of the Kiehl's for my husband's stocking. They are great products! I'll have to look into that serum because I've never seen that one. Have a wonderful weekend!
