Thinking about getting boyfriend or husband a shirt from your Father's closest this year? While you may be picking out that shirt with good intentions think twice before you purchase it. The most common complaint I hear from men is that the women in their life shop for them like they were shopping for their dad. If the men in your life are anything like the ones in mine, they can be very difficult to shop for. This year I decided to tackle it ahead of time and asked every one of my male friends and relatives to send me the top 10 items on their wish list. This list of Christmas Presents for Men includes every item that made multiple wish lists! If I had 30+ men telling me -this is what I want- I am sure you will find something for that special guy in your life!
Naughty or nice every guys deserves something he wants under the Christmas tree. This list has something for every budget that is bound to make him smile.
Full Disclosure: If you would like to purchase any of these items please use the links provided. The cost is the same to you, but Parenting Chaos gets a small percentage allowing us to keep this blog maintained. The items listed in this gift guide were chosen by me and the opinions expressed are 100% my own. You can read my disclosure policy here. Thanks for your on going support!
1. Garmin nüvi 3597LMTHD 5-Inch Portable Bluetooth Vehicle GPS with Lifetime Maps and HD Traffic: $329.99
While one of the more costly items on this list, this item is definitely worth it. A GPS system was on every single wish list I received, even for the men that already were GPS owners. This particular model received the highest rating on multiple technological review sites. Why? Maybe it is the free unlimited lifetime updates, the 3D buildings and terrain, the smartphone linking capability, or the pinch and zoom capability. I'm guessing it received the highest ratings due to it's free lifetime HD Digitial Traffic. Avoiding traffic? Yeah, that's worth the price.
As a smart phone user I will openly admit I check my phone more times a day than I should. It's an addiction, I admit it. What's neat about this iPhone case (it is available for some android phones) is that you are able to check your notifications with a glance instead of having to obviously admit to the world that you have an addiction…don't pretend you don't know what I am talking about.
3.Big Mouth Toys The Gun Mug: $9.63
Does your special someone need help starting their morning off with a bang? This gift is great for the coffee lover in your life. Because what coffee lover doesn't appreciate a mug that makes them smile?
I am still in shock and awe that this made multiple wish lists. The men in my life want to learn manners? How blessed am I! In all seriousness, this book is much more than manners and it is pretty awesome. Created by the author of The Art of Manliness, this book covers everything a man should know in order to survive the modern world.
I don't really know how to explain why to get this, was just told this is the one. Like a guy in a tampon isle I am clueless on this. Have to admit that it looks snazzy and the fact that it is solar powered is pretty neat.
Another fun and essential gadget that is perfect for the man on the go. Cell phone service isn't perfect and most of us rely rather heavily on being able to access our phones. This neat little gadget takes the worry out of dead zones! I know the hubs is getting one of these this year because we have a two hour dead zone in hill country.
There once was a time when I was so pregnant that my feet where out of sight out of mind and I was able to convince the hubs to go get a pedicure with me. Nowadays those trips are few and far between. Even if your man would never be caught dead in a spa, every man does like to look their best and that includes their nails. A great quality kit that will fit in the dashboard is sure to be appreciated.
8. Hot Wheels Video Racer Micro Camera Car: $16.99
This gift will bring out the inner child in your man and make an awesome stocking stuffer. This hot wheel car doubles as an action camera that is capable of recording up to 12 minutes of action! Included in the package are straps and clip that make this action camera capable of being attached to just about anything he desires!
9. Call of Duty- Ghost: $59.96
Perfect for the gamer in your life, Call of Duty is best selling of all time video games. This brand new Call of Duty Universe is the next generation of multiplayer. This game was on every single wish list I received!
10. Ring Thing Bottle Opener: $7.95
Is the man in your life a beer lover? This nifty ring is a bottle opener they can take everywhere with them! A functional solution to keep the beer loving gremlins from stealing the bottle opener!
11. Van Der Hagen Men's Luxury Shaving Set: $26.99
A beautiful shaving set made up of a 100% pure badger hair brush, hypo-allergenic shave soap, and functional accessories. Add in a double edge razor and impress him!
A perfect bar essential. This hand blown set displays a sense of elegance while maintaining a modern edge. Bound to be a sophisticated success!
