Christmas gift ideas for men
When it comes to buying Christmas gifts for men, a good starting point is to consider their hobbies and interests. Are they fashion forward, or would they rather be running around a football field? Do they love to explore or are they more of a homebody?
Whatever they’re into, we have some top gift ideas for men to get you started.
1. The Adventurer
A great gift idea for the men who love to explore and see new sights is a fun day out. Get them a Groupon coupon so they can enjoy a sightseeing trip or helicopter tour of their favorite city.
If they’re more the type to venture into the wilderness, a tent or sleeping bag from L.L Bean could be a fab idea. Larger tents and bags with more weatherproof features will cost more, while basic models will set you back around $25.
2. The Sports Nut
If you’re looking for gifts for elderly men who’ve gotten into golf during their retirement, a gift card for Topgolf or Go Play Golf gives them the perfect chance to practice their swing.
Whatever sport they’re into, Academy Sports + Outdoors are sure to have the equipment they need. From activewear and sports jerseys, to footballs and baseball bats, you’ll find the stuff they need to enjoy their hobby.
3. The Homebody
If the guy you’re buying for is a bit of a homebody, get him something to make those cozy nights in more comfortable.
A Netflix gift card will give him access to some of the biggest shows and movies in the world, perfect for a movie night or binge-watching marathon. You could even enhance their night in with homeware from Target. Choose from a cozy blanket, slouchy loungewear or even a popcorn maker to add something special to those winter nights in.
4. The Old Master
When you’re looking for gifts for men with a little creative edge, some new art supplies are a great idea. Michael’s has supplies to suit all forms of creativity, whether that’s paper crafting, baking, candle making or frames to display their artwork.
If you want to find something extra special, eBay’s independent sellers offer some unique art kits with different designs and supplies. Some will even give the option of personalization to add an extra level of thoughtfulness.
5. The Gamer
Whatever their preferred gaming platform, you can find a suitable gift card to help enhance their experience.
Choose from booster packs that will move them up the levels to new expansions for their favorite games. An Xbox or PlayStation subscription also lets them enjoy a host of newly released games. If they’re a Nintendo fan, you can load up a gift card with up to $50 for them to spend on their latest game or console.
6. The Sharp Dresser
Treat the snappy dresser in your life to a brand new outfit. They can grab some jeans from American Eagle for a laid back, casual look, or pick up the latest trends from Nordstrom to keep their look in season.
