When my sister was in first grade, she really surprised our dad at Christmas: she wrapped up a used roll of Scotch tape, and when he unwrapped his gift on Christmas morning, he acted like it was a new sports car. To this day, he still raves about the Scotch tape because it was an adorable gesture; however, now that we’re all grown up and can’t get away with just being cute, gift giving is a little more complicated!
This handpicked gift guide for men has something for everyone, whether the guy in your life enjoys screaming at a sports match or experimenting in the kitchen.
Kalorik Stainless Steel S’mores Maker: Not just for the campground anymore, this portable s’mores maker is perfect for Dad as he entertains at holiday and birthday parties. And really, no special occasion is needed to enjoy s’mores, right?
Orthopedic Comfort Seat: This plush cushion from Black Mountain Products is available in black, blue, and gray, and made of lightweight memory foam. While it’s perfect for toting along to a little league game, take this gift to the next level with tickets to Dad’s favorite professional sporting event.
Coffee: It’s hard to go wrong when giving the gift of coffee, whether Dad loves decaf or regular. Consider classic blends like French Roast, Breakfast Blend, or Colombian, or something more seasonal, like Peppermint, Highlander Grog, or Pumpkin Spice.
Cologne: Secretly spy on Dad’s cologne supply in the medicine cabinet and see if he needs a replacement bottle, or surprise him with something new and unexpected by looking up the notes on what he already wears. Need recommendations? Check out these favorites:
- Versace Eros: This aromatic scent is a blend of mint, green apple, tonka bean, Madagascar vanilla, and vetiver.
- Guy Laroche Drakkar Noir: This cult classic launched in 1982 and is still a staple in popular fragrances for men. Notes include Lavender, citrus, spicy berries and sandalwood.
- Givenchy Pi: If Dad is a math teacher or engineer he might appreciate the name of this one more than most! Basil, rosemary, tarragon, and neroli notes dance with vanilla, tonka bean, and cedar for a warm, woody fragrance perfect for winter.
AromaTime Digital Alarm Clock Diffuser: Anyone stuck in an office knows that the air can get stale, and it’s not always possible to open up a window. Help Dad freshen up the office with a sleek diffuser and essential oils in his favorite scents, like pine, patchouli, tea tree, cedarwood, and eucalyptus.
Kalorik Healthy Hot Air Popcorn Maker: Whether Dad is a movie buff or just likes to sit down and watch his favorite sitcom, this popcorn maker is a more nutritious option than pre-made microwave pouches. Pair it with spices like rosemary, garlic, black pepper, and chili powder so Dad can get creative with his late-night snack!
