5 Practical Gifts for Men

Practical Gifts for Men Christmas 2018


I used to be one of those people who would bend over backwards to find the most perfect, unique gift for my husband. But what I’ve realized over the years is that the gifts he actually uses and appreciates the most are those that are practical. Little things that he likes having a variety of, but wouldn’t necessarily go out and repeatedly buy for himself. So today I’m sharing 5 practical gifts for men that I’ve personally gifted (to my hubs, dad, brother, etc.), and that have gone over well!

Practical Gifts for Men

1. An everyday belt.

Most of the guys I know wear a belt every single day. That’s 365 days of wear and tear, so having multiple is never a bad thing! I especially love gifting cognac belts because they match pretty much anything. This one from J.Crew Factory is on sale for UNDER $20 right now.

2. A cozy sherpa or fleece pullover.

Sherpa pullovers are so cozy and are perfect for throwing on with sweats! But since they can also be worn with jeans, they make for a great, versatile gift! This one has awesome reviews, comes in TWO colors and is currently on sale for under $65.

3. Versatile sunglasses.

Sunglasses are worn with everything – a bathing suit, gym clothes, casual clothes, dress clothes, the list goes on. So a nice quality, versatile pair makes for a great gift. Dane has this exact $55 pair and absolutely loves them!

A classic pair of slippers.

Slippers are useful in all climates; In the north where it’s cold half the year, and even in the south since so many homes contain cold tile. This pair comes in 3 different colors and are from a notable, quality retailer! I have a feeling they’re sell out, so grab them before they’re gone.

Fleece-lined gloves.

Probably more of a necessity for my fellow northerners, but you never know! I had to add these fleece-lined leather gloves into the mix not just because they are practical, but because of their value. Thirty-two dollars for these is a steal, and they come in two different colors. You can see both right here.

I hope this post proves that just even the simplest gifts can be equally useful and appreciated. At the end of the day, no matter what you choose to give the guys in your life, it truly is the thought that counts. So don’t put unnecessary stress and pressure on yourself during the most wonderful time of the year!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading. I hope to see you again soon!
