Gift Ideas for Him 2023

No matter what the guy in your life fancies himself — a chef, an athlete, an intellectual — you’re sure to find something that’s right up his alley on this list. Here are our gift ideas for dads, partners, brothers, and all the men in your life (hah):

Hydro Flask Insulated Mug ~ $30

The newly revamped stainless steel travel mug from Hydro Flask comes with a fitted lid and keeps hot drinks hot for hours. It’s perfect for walks, commutes, etc. — or for home, because who wants lukewarm coffee?

Carhartt Insulated Work Safety Gloves ~ $28

These do-it-all gloves are durable, warm, and sturdy. They’re perfect for any kind of winter/outdoor work, ranging from chopping firewood to shoveling snow, or everyday use during colder months.

Mo Cuishle Shiatsu Neck and Back Massager ~ $50

For the guy with the sore muscles. This heated deep-kneading back, neck and shoulder massager will make him say, “ahhh!” Comes with a car adapter so he can use it on the go. Best part? You can borrow it. Ha!

Cold Beer Coat Koozie ~ $20

These litter puffer jacket koozies are as ironic as they are functional. The full collection also includes flannel koozies, parka koozies, life preserver koozies and more – pick a favorite! (*Note that the price is for one.)

Apple AirTags ~ $28 each

You can put these on anything (remote, keys, luggage, pets, kids, LOL) to easily find what you need. Just pair the device with your phone and then you can page it to locate. I call this one: the gift of the end of lost things.

Patagonia Retro Pile Fleece Vest ~ $129

This old-school vest is cozy and chic and totally on trend — it pairs with any outfit and lasts forever.

Vuori Ponto Performance Half Zip Hoodie ~ $118

Vuori makes the softest, buttery-feeling apparel. He’ll love this half-zip moisture-wicking hoodie with a kangaroo pocket. Perfect for travel and every day wear.

Nespresso Essenza Mini ~ $119

For the coffee enthusiast in your life, this compact version of the beloved Nespresso coffee machine makes the most divine espresso and Americanos.

Bombas Socks ~ $varies

Socks: the most exciting unexciting gift — because everyone wants good ones but no one wants to pay for ’em… Pick a set for the practical person in your life. Best part of Bombas is that for every pair purchased, Bombas donates a pair to someone in need.

A Classic LL Bean Flannel ~ $59+

It’s never a bad time for a flannel — choose from many new color and fit options added this year. So warm and cozy!

The Ridge Wallet ~ $76

Don’t let the slimness of this wallet fool you; it’s heavy duty! Not only is it made of durable military-grade materials (and comes with a lifetime guarantee), but due to its RFID blocking (the outer metal body) your cards will be safe from from RFID Chip Readers.

Whiskey Making Kit ~ $60

For the whiskey lover in your life. This kit comes with everything he’ll need to make his own whiskey from scratch — minus the alcohol. Do it together for a fun activity, or just enjoy the fruits — ahem, whiskey — of his labor!

Artisian Steel Pizza Stone ~ $89

This thing makes the best pizza. As one reviewer put it, “it’s not a wood-fired oven, but it’s the next best thing.”

Philips SmartSleep Wake-Up Light ~ $115

This smart alarm uses light instead of sound to wake you up gently and more naturally — it’s a great pick for anyone who wants to make mornings easier (read: all parents).

UGG Tasman Slippers ~ $109

These classic sheep-wool scuffers have a super durable sole so they are great for day-to-day indoor/outdoor wear.

We hope one of those picks is a match. Want to keep your holiday shopping on the cheap this year? Take a look at our Best Gifts Under $50 — or if you’re looking to spoil him, check out Best Luxury Gifts. [See also: Best Father’s Day Gifts from 2023]
