When I asked what kind of gift guides would be relevant this season, y’all answered loud and clear when you told me that it was a struggle to buy for the men in your life. So I asked a few of the men in my life for ideas and then scoured the internet for the best items under $100.
You can learn more about a product by clicking it on the collage or by checking out the links directly under the collage. (It’s not possible to link to all of the items in the collage, and I’ve included prices with the links below to save you a little time!) I genuinely hope that y’all find this gift guide helpful and that it alleviates a little bit of stress when it comes to shopping for the most impossible people to shop for 😉
Patagonia Quarter Zip ($97) // Cards Against Humanity ($25) // Grill Master Set ($86)
‘What If?’ Book ($15) // Chapter Toiletry Case ($30) // Whiskey Stones ($16)
Men’s Grooming Kit ($27) // Wooden Eyeglass Holder ($12) // Beer Making Kit ($40)
Yeti Rambler ($30) // Set of Six Personalized Old Fashioned Glasses ($65)
Poker Set ($100) // Bombay Shirt Company Gift Voucher ($45-75)
Motorized Tie Rack ($37) // Smartphone Projector ($32)
Shopping for men is not a one size fits all approach. So below I’ve shared a fun little list of who I would imagine receiving the gifts pictured above.
A gift for the man who:
- Lives in quarter zips
- Is an amateur beer brewer
- Actually leaves Vegas richer than he started
- Could spend a lifetime asking hypothetical questions
- Is on the road more than he’s home
- Won’t let anyone touch his grill
- Prefers an old fashioned
- Constantly “borrows” your nail trimmers & tweezers #gross
- Looks like his shirt was made just for him
- Always wants to show you YouTube videos
- Wears glasses & a sense of humor like they’re going out of style
- Loves game night
- Seems to have a totally different tie for every day of the year
- Fits none, one, or all of the descriptions above (aka any man)
Also, you probably noticed that there’s a gift card on my list. The last time I included a gift card on a list like this there was some tension in the comments section, so I wanted to take a minute to explain why a gift voucher is so awesome and appropriate in this situation. I really struggle to buy men’s clothing because I have no idea how the sizing runs, and I hate to spoil the surprise by asking someone what size they wear. I didn’t realize until the past year or so that men’s clothing has just as many quirks as women’s clothing. (Who knew that one shirt could have so many different kinds of collars and sleeves?!) Bombay Shirt Company offers custom made shirts at a super affordable price. I know it sounds too good to be true, but it comes highly recommended and is an option to give serious consideration to this holiday season!

I’m leaving tomorrow to spend Thanksgiving in Connecticut and New York, so I want to wish y’all a very happy Thanksgiving! I’m so thankful for you. Thanks for stopping by to check out my little corner of the internet and for your kind words. I’ve loved getting to connect with y’all, and I just hope y’all have the best day ever. Ending the sappiness now, I promise.
Happy shopping, y’all! And be sure to come back later this week for a list of Black Friday & Small Business Saturday specials!
