Christmas Gifts for Men:
Boyfriends, Dads, Husbands

Everyone loves getting gifts during the holidays, but what’s even more fun is giving gifts. You get to pick out the perfect gift for everyone on your list. Sometimes, however, we can feel stumped when trying to find that perfect present for the men in our lives.

Sure, you can go the tie or cologne route, but you may have done that in years past. Maybe this year you want to support a hobby or entice him to try something new. There are so many great men’s gifts to choose from that it’s just a matter of honing in on the right ones. The first thing you should consider is your budget. You can find great Christmas gifts at every price level, ranging from new grill tools to a beautiful set of Wüsthof knives. Determine your price point and then find a gift in that range.

Let’s explore some hobby-based gift ideas for boyfriends, dads, husbands and all of the men in your life.

Wine Aficionados, Beer Makers and Mixologists

Perhaps you are buying for a beer, wine or spirits connoisseur. Start with a set of 12 whiskey rocks to keep high-quality spirits chilled without watering them down. Embrace the mixology trend with sophisticated ice accessories, including sphere molds, crusher mallets and ice bags. Buy him some decanters for wine or spirits, or gift him some premium highball or Old Fashioned glasses and a quality Bloody Mary mix. Continue the retro theme with a functional and stylish metal rolling bar cart for parties inside and out. Want to help upgrade his wine collection? Consider a Cuisinart dual-zone wine cooler to store 12 bottles at two different temperatures for reds and whites.

Grill and Kitchen Masters

Whether he's a whiz in the kitchen or a master on the grill, cookware always works as a Christmas gift. Knives, cast-iron pans, grill brushes, griddles, a wok, a French press for a robust cup of coffee or even a pasta maker—these are all thoughtful gifts that dads, boyfriends and husbands love. Does he love to grill? Look for burger presses, meat thermometers and grilling gloves to round out his collection of tools. If he's not already a great cook, you can help with specialty sauces, gourmet spices and a few cookbooks—even a fun apron. It'll be like he's the host of his own cooking show.

Gamers and Sports Fans

Help build him a man cave—or at least a room to escape. A beautiful leather or fabric club chair is a great Christmas gift for any guy. For warm weather fun, give him games such as bocce, croquet or table tennis sets. Combine a poker kit with a round dining room table that doubles as a card table during guys’ night. Add in beer pitchers, wine decanters and glasses. To help him decorate the walls, look for frames to house his prized record collection or one-of-a-kind artwork.

Thoughtful Gifts for Any Man

Guys won’t always admit that they want to look well groomed. Get him a leather manicure set to help him stay polished. A leather-bound notebook he can keep by the side of the bed is a thoughtful men's Christmas gift if he enjoys journaling. Shopping for a romantic soul? Choose a scented candle or a framed photo to show him how much you care.

No matter what you end up with, it's really the thought that counts. If you put a lot of thought into gift ideas this special, he can't help but love everything he gets.
