Cozy Gifts

Cooler temperatures and (hopefully) some holiday downtime call for gifts that say “aaah.”

The daddy of all sweatshirts, the Carhartt Quilted Flannel-Lined Jacket has that retro “workwear” look, with a quilted flannel lining, handwarmer pockets, and a water-repellent treatment that makes it great for winter.

The Pendleton Yakima Camp Blanket gives those classic Pendleton stripes that are synonymous with cozy cabin style. Keep it in the car or on the sofa.

Then set him up for a few extra holiday winks with a sleep mask. This Petite Plume French Ticking Mask is like black-out shades for his eyes, and those blue-and-white stripes are a nice classic touch.

Kitchen Gifts

Do you have a cook in the house? Even if he already has a well-stocked kitchen, we’ve rounded up a few gifts he might not have at hand.

Who doesn’t like a breakfast sandwich? (We see exactly no hands raised.) The Hamilton Beach Dual Breakfast Sandwich Maker will let him layer bread and fillings then quickly cook breakfast sammies for two in one easy-clean appliance.

If you know a guy who mourns the end of barbecue season, gift him the George Foreman Indoor/Outdoor Electric Grill. It will satisfy his stand-and-grill needs year round.

Have a heat fiend on your list? Give him this Make-Your-Own Hot Sauce Kit so he can add a personal touch to nachos, chili, pizza, and whatever else he thinks isn’t quiiite hot enough.

Beverage Gifts

Sure, he already has his basic beverage needs met, but that doesn’t mean he can’t upgrade and have a little fun while he’s doing it.

For the cocktail connoisseur, or someone who’d like to develop his skills, the Williams Sonoma Stainless Steel Bar Tool Set includes a shaker, strainer, jigger, bottle opener, garnish knife, stirrer, ice tongs, and a stand to keep it all together. Cheers!

Then he can serve his concoctions in the Urban Map Glass for a fun personal touch. Because why not? There are more than 30 urban locales to choose from.

And if your drinking buddy is more about caffeine than cocktails, the Ember Temperature-Control Smart Mug is app controlled and will keep a cuppa perfectly hot for an hour-and-a-half on a single charge.

Gadget Gifts

It may be a holiday gift cliche, but guys like a gadget. And gadgets make great gifts for guys who don’t really need, well, anything.

For all his 2020 destressing needs, this HoMedics Shiatsu Neck Massager offers a deep, kneading shiatsu massage, a soothing vibration massage, or a combination of both. There’s also a heat option, integrated controls, and comfortable flex handles.

Do fingerprints on devices drive him mad? This iRoller Touchscreen Cleaner is a reusable cleaner and smudge remover for tablets, iPads, smartphones, and any other touchscreen device, and it takes care of bacteria and sanitizes screens as well.

For the home tinkerer, the WORX Power Screw Driver is a compact, rechargeable tool to make easier work of assembly and fix-it jobs around the house, featuring a set of bits, a magnetic bit holder, and headlights to light the way in dark corners.

Travel Gifts

It may not seem like it right now, circa Holiday Season 2020, but we will travel again. These gifts are great for the guy who likes to keep moving.

The Filson Duffel Pack is a getaway bag made splurge-worthy (or gift-worthy) with a bridle-leather grab handle and zipper pulls, and that retro “Filson Alaska Outfitters” label. It can also be carried like a backpack and has a padded pocket for a 15-inch laptop.

The Quagga Electronics Travel Kit will keep tech essentials together and zipped up tight, with cord organizers, secure spots for accessories like an external hard drive, and a mesh pocket for flash drives and other small items.

Know an international traveler? The Translaty MUAMA Enence Smart Language Translator is a clever gadget that supports translation in up to 40 languages, via voice recognition, a photo of printed material, or two-way real-time communication.

Outdoor Gifts

If nothing else, 2020 has encouraged us to appreciate time in the great outdoors. Consider these gifts for the outdoorsy guy on your list.

How cool (or hot) is this? A no-muss, no-fuss reusable mini Portable Campfire that can be lit with a match or lighter, bringing the warmth to backyard, beach, or campsite for hours of fireside conversation and marshmallow roasting. To put the fire out, just slip the lid back on.

Corkcicle Gunmetal Stemless Wine Cup is triple-insulated to keep white wine and spritzers cold for up to nine hours, spiked cider and hot chocolate warm for three hours—or just make it easy to drink wine outdoors or on-the-go without worry about breaking a glass. And now it comes in this cool gunmetal color.

The guy on your gift list doesn’t have to be a birdwatcher to have fun with a pair of binoculars. Bushnell Legend Binoculars are rugged, lightweight, and water repellant, with a textured rubberized skin for an easy grip.

Classic Gifts

There’s a reason some gifts are given again and again, so don’t be afraid to go old-school for a classic guy.

A watch is as classic as a gift gets, and this Timex Reissue Bracelet Watch is a timepiece flashback to the 1970s, with a perfect mix of vintage and modern. And that bright-blue face doesn’t hurt anything.

Also in the jewelry family, these Personalized Leather Cufflinks will add a unique touch to a wedding suit or other formalwear, and he’ll think of the gift giver every time he sees them in his top dresser drawer.

A good pair of leather gloves is timeless, and these Barbour Leather Utility Gloves with faux-fur lining are warm, luxe, and a winter must-have.

Sporty Gifts

Whether he’s an armchair fan or weekend athlete, a fun, sporty gift will give him something to play with—and isn’t that what holiday gifts are about?

Sitting neatly in the “Don’t need anything but this is fun” category, the JBL Clip 3 Portable Bluetooth Speaker comes in a whole bunch of colors, and at just four inches across, plus a carabiner to hang it on a backpack or belt loop, it’s about as portable as a speaker can be.

This map-print Spalding Globe Basketball will take him around the world while he’s shooting hoops, and it looks good enough to be displayed when it’s not being played with.

Then he can crack a cold one with an MLB Game Used Baseball Bat Bottle Opener, handmade from actual game-day bats used by MLB players. Each opener comes with a card telling which game the bat was used in, and there are 30 teams to choose from—from Angels to Yankees.
