Edwin is an AirPod fanatic. These AirPods with the charging case are the perfect gift. AirPods are expensive so they a nice gift but they don’t absolutely break the bank. Edwin loves to wear these for work calls and on walks with our dogs while listening to podcasts!
Edwin is often on the hunt for his chargers and has more than once found himself ready to go for a day of work or a workout only to find his apple watch not charged. That’s why I love this gift for men. It is highly practice and a gadget that men will actually use!
If the guy you’re gifting doesn’t have an Apple watch, then this charging pad is the gift for him. This iPhone charging pad is under $50 and looks so sleek on a bedside table. I’m calling this one of the absolute best stocking stuffers for men!
Edwin has a bunch of Apple products but he doesn’t have an iPad so he’s asking for one this year. Edwin maintains that the iPad is the best Apple device for travel. P.S. if you work in an industry that requires skills like photo editing, then Edwin says to pick up the iPad Pro.
A pair of powerful smart speakers for rich sound in up to two rooms… a perfect gift for guys. Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa are built right in so you can play music, check news, set alarms, get your questions answered, and more, completely hands free.
Edwin loves his Solé bike so much. They are designed in Venice beach and arrive at your doorstep 90% assembled so there is no hassle with these bikes. Solé bikes are a modern classic!
I can’t think of a better gift than an audible subscription! If you’re gifting a man who loves reading, is in the car a lot, or has a long commute, then this is the best gift! You can buy a 1 month, 3 month, 6 month, or 12 month subscription. The production quality of audio books is so fantastic now so you can’t go wrong with this gift. It’s great for grandpa, dad, or your father-in-law.
We are extreme Delta loyalists. It’s the best airline! If you’re stumped on what to gift a man in your life this year, then I think a Delta gift card is a sure bet! You can purchase a gift card for anywhere between $50 – $500 so you can tailor it to your budget. I also love the idea of gifting a Delta gift card to a special someone you want to plan a trip with!
Edwin is on the go constantly for work so great, durable, functional luggage is key. We both have this Away Luggage ‘Bigger Carry-on’ and love it. The ejectable phone charger comes in so handy. The layout of the suitcase is really amazing and helps packing stay so organized. I highly recommend this suitcase!
Edwin is a big fan of Filson products. So, this fall, when he was in need of a new briefcase, he turned to Filson and found this versatile one. It comes in 5 colors and is highly recommended by Edwin!
A Hydro Flask is the perfect gift for any male. Edwin and my brother both take theirs with them to their office every single day. It is also the perfect companion for the trail, the beach, or other everyday use thanks to TempShield protection that keeps beverages the ideal temperature, hot or cold.
Edwin is pretty specific about his fly fishing rods but he likes and recommend the Tenkara fishing rod to anyone because it’s not a traditional fly fishing rod and more of a fun compact solution that doesn’t have a reel. The best part is that this set comes with everything you need to get fishing. Edwin thinks any guy would be excited to receive this gift!
Admittedly, I had no idea what a Jetboil was until Edwin recommended I include one in this guide. According to Edwin, it’s the single best purchase he’s every made for camping and backpacking. What’s a Jetboil? It boils 16 oz. of water in 100 seconds and packs down into a small compact package. So, you don’t have to go without your hot coffee while camping.
Jetboil fuel is sold separately so Edwin wanted to warn R&R readers that you must also buy the Jetboil fuel to make this nifty gadget work. According to Edwin, we won’t go camping without this pair!
We’re big game people so we always travel with a deck of cards, our roll-up travel backgammon game, or dominos. This leather roll-up travel backgammon board is handsome looking and not crazy expensive like some backgammon boards. I highly recommend games for gifts!
Recently, we’ve started to play more dominos and are having so much fun with it. This domino set is a fantastic stocking stuffer for males. I love that it can be personalized giving it an extra special touch.
My parents gifted Edwin and my brother cast iron skillets for Christmas two years ago and they both still count the gift as one of their most used. The Smithey cast iron skillets are the best on the market! It is perfect for pan-frying chicken, searing steaks on the range, roasting vegetables in the oven, and baking breads.
This is an amazing gift for your grandpa, dad, father-in-law, or husband. This is one of the most stunning decanters I’ve ever seen! I simple can’t get over the etched fly-fishing design.
I have amassed quite a collection of coffee table books. I think it’s nice to have a more masculine coffee table book or two out on display as well. This book, The History of Surfing, is a classic and can be found in our house.
I asked Edwin what book I should include in this gift guide and he immediately sent me the link to this book. It is from Patagonia’s publishing house so it is sure to be extremely well done. Edwin counts it as a favorite.
Made from soft leather in a beautiful shade of chocolate brown, this laptop case is perfect for travel and for carrying a laptop to and from work. You can also make it special by adding a personalized foil debossed monogram.
I love this leather pouch for the traveling man. Stash toiletries and shaving gear, while traveling near and far. This structured, angular zippered leather pouch has a nylon lining and handy interior pocket. So, it’s super functional.
Edwin’s go-to button-downs are the slim fit J.Crew oxford shirts. The J.Crew oxford button-down shirt is a quintessential wardrobe staple and a hallmark of old-school collegiate style. It’s beloved for its easy versatility: it can dress up chinos or make a suit feel more relaxed. I get Edwin one or two new oxford every Christmas!
These are Edwin’s favorite chinos. He wears them multiple times a week and says he can’t recommend them enough. If you’re gifting a male who needs a bit of a closet refresh, then add these to your cart!
As seen in a photo in this post, Edwin loves his waxed Barbour jacket. I got it for him last year for Christmas and it’s been a staple in his wardrobe ever since. Dress it up, dress it down… it’s perfect!
If you’re gifting a guy that doesn’t have this Patagonia jacket, then stop everything and buy it. There’s no better all wear sport jacket! I think Edwin has owned one for about two decades now.
The Patagonia Better Sweater Vest is Edwin’s favorite vest (as seen in the photos in this post). It is the perfect layer and goes with everything. If you gift this vest to your favorite guy, then it will become a staple in his wardrobe, I promise!
This fleece snap up comes highly recommended from my brother, Clarke! He recently got it for his birthday from my sister and he’s been wearing it non-stop. Clarke raves about the über soft material and the front kangaroo pocket. The perfect cozy gift for guys!
Edwin was never a sweatpant guy in his life until we got our dogs. Now, Edwin is often up super early outside with the dogs. He quickly discovered that cold winter mornings call for sweats. I got Edwin these awhile back and they are his go-to. Quite simply, they are the softest sweats your guy will ever wear. I’m a big fan of the relaxed tapered fit.
These shorts are the best versatile short for everyday activity. The shorts have a classic fit and easy stretch so every guy will love them! Edwin loves clothing in the color ‘charcoal’ so I knew he’d love these when I picked them up for him. Outdoor Voices does charcoal so well!
I got Edwin these wool runners last year for Christmas and they were a big hit! When Edwin is working on set, he is often on his feet for hours on end. These shoes have become one of his go-to’s because of this. They are understated, comfortable, and offer enough support. Again, he loves the charcoal color!
Edwin purchased himself these sneakers last spring and gets so much wear out of them! They are a one of Nike’s best-selling sneakers for a reason. The super-versatile, low-profile retro design looks good with everything from denim to chinos to suits.
These Tecovas boots are at the very top of Edwin’s Christmas wish list this year. I love that they are a classic cowboy style boot with a modern feel thanks to the side zipper. My brother has a different pair of Tecovas boots so I can vouch for the high quality of the leather of these boots and vouch for the long lasting comfort. They are a big hit in our family!
I got Edwin a pair of Clarks Desert Boots for Christmas in 2013 and they have been one of his most worn shoes ever since. Edwin wears these into the ground. That’s how much he loves them! Desert Boots are the best because you can easily dress them up or down so they are really all purpose. Any man with classic style will love these as a gift.
These are the exact sunglasses Edwin wears every single day! If I had to suggest one pair of sunglasses for men, it would be these! You can’t beat the combination of the quality and the price either.
This cashmere beanie is a wardrobe essential for man who lives anywhere remotely cold. It makes for a perfect stocking stuffer! Choose from 7 different colors to find the one best for your guy.
Gloves are one of those things that are totally necessary but not every guy’s favorite thing to spend money on. Edwin usually gets a new pair every year as one glove inevitable goes missing or gets eaten by one of our dogs. These cable-knit gloves are a cool classic and a great stocking stuffer.
I have the female version of these socks and kept finding them go missing. Well, Edwin was the culprit! So, I picked up a few pairs for him and he loves how warm they are. Think of them as similar to camp socks.
