Men’s Gift Giving Guide 2021

by Jessica Pigza

I admit, every year I struggle with what to get the men in my life. I like my gifts to be fun, useful, and sometimes practical. As we all work so hard to pare down on the amount of stuff we have, I try really hard to make sure my gifts don’t end up in a closet somewhere, forgotten, and eventually donated. That’s why I’ve taken great care in curating a men’s gift-giving guide that has something for every man on your list from the fun to the practical. I hope this helps you check some people off your list and get that much closer to being able to relax over the holidays!

1. Dr. Squatch

My husband was given a bar of soap to try from a friend on a camping trip. Ever since then he’s been hooked, as is my son. This is the first soap that doesn’t dry out his skin, smells great, and it’s all-natural. Not only do they have soap but they have deodorant, toothpaste, and hair care. They have different gift sets and bundles available and offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Plus if Dr. Squatch soap becomes a staple in your house as it has mine, you can set up auto-ship and receive a discount on your order!

2. MSTJRY Charging Station for Multiple Devices

Help him keep all his devices neat and charged with this all in one charging station. Available with an array of charging cord options, this unit works with Apple or Andriod products. It has six ports and the short cords ensure that they won’t get tangled. The best part is this unit works off a single plug so he won’t have to monopolize all the plugs to charge his gadgets.

3. True Classic

Just like we are on the hunt for the perfect tees, men are no different. Enter in the True Classic brand. They have shirts that are a bit more fitted and provide a more flattering sillhoute. They help accentuate the men’s arms and shoulders without looking like a shapeless box. Plus they are super soft! In addition to plain long and short sleeve tees, they also have joggers, underwear, hoodies, and henleys. Plus every purchase goes to help homeless vets get shelter.


Eliminate wasted time looking for lost keys, cell phones, wallets, remote controls and more with the simple to use Tile and app. Simply attach one of the different models of the Tile to the items of your choice and easily located it using Bluetooth technology and an app on your phone. You can also use the Tile in reverse to locate your phone, even if it’s on silent. I can’t even pretend this is just a great gift for the guys, because I can think of a few ways this could make my life easier as well.

5. Shady Rays

I don’t know about your man but if he’s anything like mine, his sunglasses are scratched up from being tossed around and dropped. It’s hard to justify spending a lot of money on something that doesn’t really get taken care of but that’s when I discovered Shady Rays. Not only are these sunglasses durable, but they come in a variety of styles and colors. The best part is they offer free returns or exchanges so there’s no risk. Now, this is really the best part, they offer free replacements on lost and broken sunglasses, just pay shipping. I’ve already taken advantage of this deal for my husband and it couldn’t be an easier process. Plus each pair sold equals 10 meals donated through Feeding America. They also have some awesome shades for the ladies so while you’re at it, pick up a pair for yourself. You’ll be happy you did!


For the guy on the go and who wants something truly unique, I recommend the Cotopaxi Allpa Travel bag. They come in a variety of color combinations and no two are the same. Cotopaxi boasts products that are well made and leave behind a small footprint. All products in their (Re)Purpose™ Collection use fabric leftover from other companies’ larger production runs. We take high-quality, remnant fabric originally produced for another purpose to create these products. Every (Re)Purpose™ product keeps fabric out of the landfill and puts it in the hands of thoughtful adventurers like you.

7. Bose SoundLink Color Bluetooth® speaker II

Perfect for taking his tunes anywhere, the Bose SoundLink Color Bluetooth® speaker II is small but tough and water-resistant making it perfect for camping, the lake, or even the back yard. Featuring a soft-touch silicone exterior and a built-in microphone for calls, plus a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that provides him up to 8 hours of playtime. Use two or more Bose Home Speakers together with the app to play them all in perfect sync to keep the party going. This speaker is available in four colors.


If he loves to learn new things then why not give the gift of classes taught by leaders in their industry all from the comforts of home with MasterClassMasterClass offers 90+ classes across a variety of categories, including business and leadership, photography, cooking, writing, acting, music, sports, and more. Every class has been designed to be accessible for people with little to no experience and advanced students alike. With new classes launching regularly, they can learn practical skills, ignite new passions, and get everyday wisdom. Plus they are offering a 2 for 1 holiday special now thru November 29th.

9. Where to Drink Coffee

For the coffee lover, the Where to Drink Coffee book is perfect to know where to find the best cup of joe anywhere in the world. The best 150 baristas and coffee experts share their secrets – 600 spots across 50 countries – revealing where they go for coffee throughout the world. Places chosen range from cafés, bakeries, and restaurants to some more surprising spots, including a video store and an auto shop.

10. The Ultimate BBQ Box by Grill Masters Club

For the king of the grill, The Ultimate BBQ Box by Grill Masters Club is the perfect gift! You can opt for a single box or sign him up for a monthly subscription. Each box includes full sized bottles of BBQ sauce, rubs, spices, wood chips and more. He’ll have everything he needs to make some amazing food on the grill. And of course he’ll need someone to help him taste test his creations. I call this the gift that keeps on giving!


Lastly, you can never go wrong with gifting experiences whether it’s dinner out, tickets to their favorite sporting event or a movie. Why not plan a special trip or travel to his favorite restaurant, or place, even if it’s a couple hours away. Make a day of it and have fun! This is a chance to get creative and it doesn’t have to be expensive, just use your imagination and you can create a fun memory that won’t be forgotten!
