It can be super tricky to shop for the men in our life because unless they ask for it directly, it’s hard to know not only what they’ll love but what they’ll actually use. And hands up if the men in your life typically just buy what they need anyways. BUT! I have gathered some gooood ideas for all types of men!

Solo stove – We have some friends with one of these and it’s the talk of every neighborhood party! The Solo Stove is smokeless fire pit and it’s portable so it can live on your back porch or travel with you on life’s adventures.

Wireless meat thermometer – The men in your life will never have to guess if meat is cooked again. This is such a handy tool to have in the kitchen but not necessarily something someone would buy for themselves which makes it a great gift!

JBL portable mini speaker – This little speaker has great sound, is waterproof, and has over 17k five star reviews! Your guys can take it golfing, to the beach, camping, or around town!

Personalized golf balls – Such a thoughtful, unexpected gift for the golfer in your life!

Battery charger pack – You can never have too many of these on hand! A portable charger is such a great stocking stuffer, too!

Flip straw Stanley tumbler – We love these 30oz leak proof Stanleys so much! Use code RACHEL20 for 20% off (cannot be applied if it’s currently on sale)!

Car wash kit – For the guy who prefers to DIY their car washes, this kit is so great because it has everything they could ever need all in one spot!

Personalized cuff links– These personalized cuff links will be a go to anytime the recipient gets dressed up! You can never go wrong with a personalized gift.

Basketball hoop lights – If someone in your life has a basketball hoop, these LED lights are so cool to add so they can play at night!

Light up basketball – Gift this light up basketball with the hoop lights for a fun bundle!

Leather Apple watch band– For the man that might want to dress up his Apple watch! This is a great gift that someone might not think about!

Ember temperature control mug– Ember mugs have been one of the coolest gifts for a few years now for a reason! It hooks up with an app to your phone to keep your coffee hot all day long.

Yeti Cooler – You can’t go wrong with anything Yeti for a dude, truly!

Rtic portable cooler bag– We keep one of these RTIC bags in the house to pack with everything from snacks on a road trip to bringing drinks to a friend’s house. It’s SO handy and more portable than a full on hard cooler!

Personalized leather dopp kit – I’ve gifted these to several men in my life and they’re always a hit!

Moccasins, these house shoes – Turn any guy into a slipper man after trying these! We wear them out so much it’s on our list every year!

Fly fishing flies – For the fly fisherman in your life!

Custom golf head cover – Make this the new favorite in their set!

Interval wall timer – Great for any gym junkie with an at home gym!

Cordless drill set – Thomas’s pick and approved!

Tackle boxes – These are so great for the fisherman in your life but also have multiple uses beyond that! They’d be great for smaller pieces like nails and screws too!

Personalized leather airpod case – Never have to wonder who’s AirPod’s are whose again!

Cast iron skillet – maybe pair this with a cast iron skillet cookbook! Great gift set!

Towel warmer – This is such a random luxury item a guy wouldn’t buy for themselves!

Personalized canvas weekender bag

Custom branding tool for wood or steak!

Kove Bluetooth speaker – I love this as a gift because it’s truly for anyone! It can be split into two different speakers and play the same song in separate areas of the room to create surround sound! RACHEL.AWTREY_C67 gives you 67% off!

Cooling towel – This packable cooling rag is great great for the gym, during a round of golf, for a hot summer’s day etc!

Survival tool (size of a credit card) – This is so good for the guy that’s hard to gift for, for a stocking stuffer, etc! I love that it’s the size of a credit card so it can just live in a wallet!

Deodorizing Sneaker balls – Grab these for the athlete in your life!

9 – in – 1 multitool pen – Similar to the survival tool above, this multitool pen is so handy to keep in your car or office and is a great stocking stuffer.

Car vacuum – I was gifted one of these last year and let me just say we are fully converted to the car vaccuum life! Amazing for when kiddos dump snacks, sunflower seeds are spilled, or the dirt from our shoes builds up between washes!

Bombas – Thomas’s fave socks! They also donate a pair to the homeless for every pair bought! It’s a win-win!

The best smelling soap bar – Just trust me on this one! Smells sooo good!

Popcorn making bowl – This silicone collapsible popcorn bowl is amazing for family movie nights or the popcorn lover! Just throw the kernels in and place in the microwave! It’s a healthier alternative to bagged popcorn, too!

Spike ball – Spike ball is such a portable, fun game and I’ve never met a

Personalized leather belt – These belts are a keepsake any guy will keep forever!

Whiskey glasses with leather personalization – For the whiskey lover in your life, these lowball glasses are so nice to have on hand for a drink.

Reflection Guide

One of my absolute favorite things to do is to take inventory of my life. This is for a lot of different reasons! It makes me feel levelheaded and clear minded whenever I can get all my thoughts on paper and “brain dump“ what I’m thinking and feeling and praying through in this season. Do the same with this guide at the beginning of each month!
