How to Shop for Men

Answering this question is no easy feat, since every man is different, and will have different tastes. By following these three handy tips, however, you’re sure to find a gift that will put a smile on his face come Christmas morning. 

Stick with the classics: Classic holiday gifts for men include things such as watches and grooming essentials. If your man is past due for a new timepiece, for instance, it’s a good idea to pick up a shiny one, like this find from Michael Kors. Alternately, if he’s someone who takes personal hygiene seriously, there’s a grooming set ($55, Bloomingdale’s) or a beard brush ($9.98, Amazon) out there with his name on it. 

Think of his hobbies: Whether he likes to spend his time fishing or loves tinkering around with tools, taking his hobbies into consideration could be a great solution if you’re stuck on what to get your favorite fella. For the ultimate grill master, a personal brander ($14.99, Amazon) is sure to make his day. If you’ve got a man who’d rather sleep under the stars, however, a portable hammock ($34.99, Amazon) makes for the perfect pick.

Get sentimental: You’re giving your man a gift because you love him, so why not get a little sentimental? From books that are filled with sweet nothings ($20, Uncommon Goods) to new cologne ($65 ($110 value) that’s Sephora) that’s bound to  make him think of you each time he spritzes it on, a pick that comes from the heart is a surefire way to gifting success.
