It’s about that time! Getting a head start on my Christmas shopping early this year to hopefully prevent that last minute pressure/stress right before the holidays. Today kicks off my 2019 gift guide series with one of the hardest…gifts for him! When Brian wants something, he immediately orders it from Amazon but I told him to HALT on that from now through the end of the year 🤣I gathered ideas from Brian, my dad and brother to come up with this list.
This year I really tried to think of a variety of items with various price points to hopefully help pinpoint the perfect gifts for you to give. Every year this is one of the most requested gift guides, so I rounded-up my top favorites and also added additional resources below to help you find exactly what you are looking for!

GIFTS FOR HIM
No. 1 Nano Puff Water Resistant Jacket
I got Brian this jacket last year and he LOVES it. Such a good fit, lightweight and water resistant.
No. 2 IPA Craft Beer Kit
All of the men I know love a good craft beer so I thought this would be a fun gift that gives them something fun to do alone or with their buddies. This kit gives you everything you need to get started brewing your own beer at home.
No. 3 Apple AirPods With Charging Case
These make such a great gift, especially if you know someone who commutes. I also love that the case charges them quick!
No. 4 Braun Multi Grooming Kit
Because men care about their beauty too. This grooming kit comes with everything they need to keep looking their best.
No. 5 YETI Portable Cooler
The best portable cooler and honestly it comes in handy for the family too when you go to the beach or if you have a boat.
No. 6 Knit Tech Gloves
Love the style of these gloves and they are touch screen friendly. Available in 3 other colors as well.
No. 7 Dad Life Tee
A fun tee is always a cute gift idea or stocking stuffer.
No. 8 Barbecue Grill Tool Kit
Brian has become the grill master in our house so I thought of this immediately as a gift. It’s a great gift to add to your registry if you are getting married soon or as a new homeowner gift as well. I would add this grilling cookbook and No. 12 too!
No. 9 Apple Watch Series 5
Another great Apple gift if they don’t have one already. It is SO helpful to have for the fitness features and the accessibility to anything important while not being glued to your phone. Helps me stay present with the kids while not missing urgent work or family things.
No. 10 Chapter Dopp Kit
A great and durable travel bag to store all their knick knacks.
No. 11 JBL Waterproof Portable Speaker
One of Brian’s favorite things. We use it all the time, at the beach, traveling etc.
No. 12 Instant Read Thermometer
This is a kitchen/grilling must have. Helps to ensure you cook to perfection every time.
No. 13 Kiehl’s Facial Fuel Favorites Set
Another one of Brian’s favorite must have’s. He loves this brand and this set makes a great gift.
No. 14 Ugg Ascot Slipper
These are so classic and Ugg just makes the coziest slippers around.
No. 15 Men’s Vault Backpack
Because Brian loves his backpack. And when he would commute to the city he would use it to store his laptop for work as well as a gym bag. I think this style is more practical and comfortable to wear around than say a messenger bag or briefcase.
No. 16 Hot Sauce Making Kit
Because why not?! Another fun activity gift that gives them something to do and enjoy.
No. 17 Personalized Wallet
Then this brand has really quality leather pieces and so many options for personalization.
No. 18 Corckcicle Cigar Glass
For the cigar loving guy.
No. 19 Wool Half-Zip Sweater
And you can’t go wrong with a quality sweater like this from one of my favorite brands.
