For the fashionista in your life, consider giving her a subscription to the Trunk Club. She can get a rotation of high quality apparel and shoes on a monthly or seasonal basis. The first step is to initiate membership and set up a style profile. She will have the option to consult with a stylist and pre-approve the items before they ship. When the Trunk Club box arrives, she can try on the garments and decide whether or not to purchase them. Wardrobe staples include denim, sneakers, sweaters, and outerwear and range from $40 to $300. Nordstrom backs all inventory. Each trunk has a styling fee of $25.
Every year, you have one less gift you’ll be able to get them. We know mates on their twentieth anniversary who already have a handful of engraved, personalized items, and all the gadgets their inner child could ever want. This gets tricky, but it’s not a lost cause. For everything he has, you can branch-off and get him something else. He enjoys his fine liquors; get him a new glass set. He’s a collector; there’s a never-ending list of watches we’re accumulating here. When in doubt, build on what’s already been built upon. It may no seem as “custom” to you, but if they have a clear interest in it, they’re going to appreciate it more than you think.
Every holiday season, I always end up encouraging someone to buy the Sephora perfume sampler as a gift. Ten years ago or so, my grandmother bought me this gift set for the holidays and it honestly changed my life. I knew nothing about perfume, but I was able to dabble in a few best-sellers thanks to this kit. When I was done, I picked my favorite (Marc Jacobs Daisy) and redeemed the coupon in the gift set for a full-sized bottle of it. I still use Daisy today. This might be at the bottom of the list, and I might be recommending it for the random person in your life, but this is a life-changing gift and it’s actually great for anyone and everyone.

They’re more about having activity-specific clothing. Patagonia jackets, hiking pants, functional clothing like altimeter watches; these are the sort of thing they’re looking for. Even if you haven’t joined him out on the trail, or taken a camping trip with him, it’s a part of who he is, and how he spends his weekends. Getting something with the great wilderness in mind is going to really resonate with him.

"My husband loves to grill, and therefore didn't necessarily need the typical grilling items. I LOVE… more that this crate allowed him to do some experimenting with a completely different cooking style (and he does too). The recipe books, circle kabobs, high quality folding spatula, and grill glove were all great additions to his grilling tools. The duct tape upgrade was worth the look on his face, too!!!” - Sarah less
EDC tools and functional items, things that they can actually use in their day-to-day life that optimize tasks. These say that you’ve been paying attention and that you have values in line with theirs: saving time wherever and whenever possible. Multi-tools and gadgets that can simplify their lives are all thoughtful, and things you can still see them using down the road.

This isn’t a bag thing, but it also comes with an additional difficulty factor, one that we wanted to flesh out in an entire section. The practical guy has three types of people who are going to understand his hobbies or understand what items will make his career/job easier to perform. They see these gifts as optimizing their life, which is a big up for the happiness factor. The types of people and the reactions they can expect are as follows:
Most women will hint about things when it gets close to their birthday or a holiday. The hint may not always be about a specific item, but may also indicate how she is feeling or how much she feels comfortable about you spending. No matter what she is saying- listen! It’ll make gift shopping easier and ensures you’re getting her something she wants.

Experience days help remind them that there’s more to life than the mundane that we’re all trapped in from time to time. In truth, it’s one of the most thoughtful gifts you can give, because it shows you took a moment to take an analysis of their likes and dislikes. Buyer beware: don’t get them skydiving lessons if you know they’re afraid of heights. There’s living outside your shell, and then, there’s embarrassing yourself because you didn’t jump out of the plane.
Whether it's used for serving or for display, this pretty Christmas gift will brighten any kitchen. Create a colorful motif around the edges of a purchased platter with ceramic paints or porcelain paint pens, then sketch and paint a fun shape in the center. Many ceramic paints require baking to set the colors, so be sure to read the packaging instructions before you start the project. This gift is perfect for anyone looking to make their house feel a little more like home.
There’s thin ice to tread, though. When a man is conscious of his style, he’s going to take certain gifts with a bit more doubt. This guy requires a bit of extra work to figure out his ideal style gift. If he’s not into boots, and you grab a pair of Chelsea boots for him, it’s going to feel more like, “This is what they want me to wear, not what’s in line with my style.” To avoid that, we have a section further in the guide, all about color-matching with certain skin tones, and their current wardrobe. That’s going to show some real dedication and attention to their style, while still getting something that compliments them.

He works his fingers to the bone, and he’s being given a serious promotion. The kind of promotion where there’s going to be a celebration. Whether you’re orchestrating it or not, it’s up to you to get something that really makes an impact. These events don’t call for functional items, but rather, significant and personalized trophy-style gifts. Engraved pens, embroidered briefcases (for their new office), or a new custom nameplate for their new desk. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination. We’re personal fans of blending a few items with commemoration, and function. Things like custom mugs, custom luggage sets (if their new job means they’ll be traveling a lot and things of the sort.
This absolutely adorable penguin family ornament is a perfect Christmas gift for family and close friends. The unique Christmas ornament can be personalized with three to six family member’s names, each professionally engraved. Additionally, you can choose to include any family title, last name or a short personal message in the shimmering snow on the bottom. Handcrafted using vibrant colors...
The traditional colors for the four-year anniversary are blue and green, colors of loyalty and vitality that your marriage is earning as you move from being newlyweds to just plain married people. But instead of investing in the traditional blue topaz or zircon, stones that can seem quite fancy on a still-shoestring lifestyle, consider a unisex multi-strand bracelet made from hand-knotted nylon for a casual take on anniversary jewelry. The bracelet works just as well for men as for women and stands up to water, sun, sports and more. In brilliant shades of aqua with metallic accents, it’s lighthearted but durable, much the way you want your relationship to be.

Be an artist of the awkward with these off-the-wall stocking stuffers that they’ll never see coming. Stocking stuffers should have a unique appeal to them, and these offerings are ones they’ll definitely be surprised by. Think emergency yodel buttons, cursed cookie cutters, and the world’s largest pair of underpants. They may not be the most practical of gifts, which makes them great to help stuff that stocking.
When my husband and I were approaching our first anniversary, we made a deal that we would choose gifts that align with the traditional anniversary gifts, year by year. I don’t know why, exactly, but something about giving gifts that have been given for hundreds of years appealed to us, I guess. To review, here are the traditional wedding anniversary gifts:

If he’s all about the outdoors, then it’s time to give him a hand and help him live the dream. There are endless camping, hiking, and outdoor activity gifts to grab for them. If you can get a look at their current setup, then you’ll know exactly where to go from there. For these gents, it’s about function, and being lightweight (since they’ll be hauling all this stuff on their own).
One of the sleekest and smartest trackers on the market, Fitbit's Versa makes a great gift for the health-conscious traveler. Some of our favorite features: auto-exercise recognition and built-in guided workouts, 24/7 heart rate tracking, room to store hundreds of songs for phone-free listening, and an impressive four- to five-day battery life. Toss in a few interchangeable leather straps and gift them as a bundle.
One of our favorites for this is Barnes & Noble, considering that they also have a Starbucks located within about half of them. Nothing goes better with books than coffee. They can also utilize it on the drive-thru on the way to work in the morning, so they can get their favorite single-serve cup without spending their own cash. Depending on how much you opt for, you could be the hero that bought them coffee all month long. Some men just get more enjoyment from books than movies, especially if they’re the type of guy who says, “You know, that wasn’t how it happened in the book,” when you guys hit an AMC together. That’s being insightful into their hobbies.
Young paleobiologists use the included, specially designed digging tools of this T-Rex Dinosaur DNA set to excavate and build a glow-in-the-dark dinosaur model from plaster-encased DNA fragments and skeleton parts. Upload the collected DNA information to bring it to virtual life. Set includes a brush, 2 AR play mats, a piece of soft wax, and detailed instructions. Ages 8-15.
Grabbing a gift card from one of the major room retailers, like Hotels.com, gives you a unique opportunity to play the hero. He may spend it on a free night during business travel, or he might spend it to take the family out and take the financial pressure off of a weekend of fun. Either way, it’s an ace in the hole that he can keep in his wallet for when the proper time arises.
All that being said, personalized gifts add a bit more oomph by letting the person know exactly how much you pay attention to them, or how in-tune you are with sentimental words and/or phrases. It can turn any gift from a simple object to something they’ll treasure for the rest of their lives. This writer has a customized Cross pen; it was an appropriate gift, given the profession, and engraved with one significant word. It’s still in use to this day and cherished above just about everything else. There’s some serious power behind personalization.
A more modern four-year-anniversary gift tradition is to choose an appliance, and that makes sense: Maybe when you registered for gifts, you were afraid of asking for too much, or didn’t know what you would use, or had a vision for what kind of married people you’d be that may not have actually panned out. That’s fine, not all of us are meant to live on homemade veggie juice!
You guys have all the fun. You grew up with/raised this guy, and you’re fairly certain you know what he enjoys. You know enough about his job, his hobbies, and his habits to get him something truly spectacular. There’s also a little bit more expectation resting on your shoulders, for all the reasons listed above. It may be a bit upsetting if you miss the mark entirely, and don’t get them something that fits in line with their life. They may negatively take it as, “Wow, I guess they really don’t know me after all.” 

I have been wanting to buy Madewell's classic leather tote bag for a while now, so I did not hesitate to purchase it when they came out with a zip top version of the bag this year. The classic tote is big enough to hold all my stuff for work, stylish enough for me to use on weekends when I don't have a lot in it, and the zip top makes it perfect for traveling on weekend trips with (or using as a carry-on while flying). The bag comes in a few different colors. I have it in English Saddle, which is of course my personal fave.
Don’t know what to get for the man that has everything? We do. There’s always explosive cutting-edge tech and one-of-a-kind gifts emerging onto the market every single day. Even if he says, “Don’t worry about it. I have everything I need.” Guess what? He doesn’t know what he’s missing. Whether he’s a runner, coffee drinker, gadget-savvy tech enthusiast, or anything in between, the perfect gifts for men are waiting below.
Nothing But Blue Skies - Work’s beating them down, and their body is a wreck. Who can afford to only work forty hours a week these days? An experience day at a pampering, relaxing retreat, all just for one day, is enough to convince them to take a load-off for once. It’s near impossible to justify a small vacation, but a one day only pampering event is hard to refuse. It allows them to still provide, and enjoy a guilt-free experience that’s selfishly about them, and nothing else.
Help ensure that your loved one stays well-groomed and looking spectacular this holiday season with these specially designed facial hair scissors! Featuring an innovative design that makes clipping those unwanted hairs a cinch, these unique Christmas gifts help your recipient achieve that clean-cut look from any angle. Unlike most other scissors designed for facial hair that have those tiny...

If you’re zoning-in on their interests, use the knowledge at your disposal to garner a good foundation. If you’ve heard anything in passing, such as, “I’d really like to do this, but I don’t have X to do it with,” you just figured out something vital: they don’t have everything they need to complete their desired tasks, and you now have a much more narrow margin of error. Bonus points if you remember exactly what they said they needed, even if it’s something that’s not inline with your interests.
So you know what to look for depending on their style, but what if you’re not entirely certain what their “style” really is? Well, there’s going to be a certain gray area that you’re able to cling to. Go with function, go with neutral colors (which we’re going to talk about in-depth in a moment), find items that appear to be universally accepted by most men.

Everyone always thinks about the house or the bride, but few think about what the husband wants on his big day. They’re melding two lives together, so he should have something equally excellent to hang up in their home with pride. If you’re the best man, you’ve got a hefty responsibility to get something meaningful and stylish (and avoid inputting inside jokes, as well). Make it meaningful, and ready to warm their house for years to come.
You've probably seen this trendy luggage on Instagram, since it's a travel blogger favorite. The brand is also one of our favorites here at Reviewed. When we tested checked luggage, Away won as our best hard-sided suitcase. It comes in 14 different colors and looks much different than your average carry-on. My personal favorite is the blush color. If you don’t want to splurge on a suitcase as a gift for the traveler, consider a duffle bag instead. Sole Society’s ‘Lacie’ Faux Leather Duffel Bag is a perfect, inexpensive option for the trendy traveler.

We’re in an era where men’s fashion has a huge focus right now. There are cliches being shattered all over the place because men actually like to go shopping for clothes and unique style items more than they ever did. Every man should have a certain set of items in their wardrobe and based on those categories, you’ll be able to pick out something from the pile that they’re certain to fall in love with. We’ll go into each category of clothing, and break them down one by one.
We’ll start with the one that’s going to make your life the most simple: a gift receipt. These are like Willy Wonka’s golden tickets, giving you free range to correct your error as pain-free as possible. Even with these, you’ll still have to provide a form of photo ID in some places. It’s rare, but it’s something you don’t want to be caught without, especially if you’re stuck in the return line after a major holiday.

This Round’s on Me - Going out for a drink is the age-old expression of downtime, and telling someone that you want to spend a good few minutes with them, while also treating them to something. These are a great impromptu way to help them take a load off while being able to enjoy some quality time with them yourself. You can also save a bit of money here, so long as you don’t get them blackout drunk, you know?
Most commentators on the subject will add that neither the Traditional gift list or Modern gift list is better than the other. It all boils down to the recipient’s tastes and interests, and the sentiment the giver wishes to convey, as to which list for that particular year yields the more appealing option for them. It is the thought that counts, especially the intention to commemorate each anniversary as a unique anniversary in its own right.

Every man needs a black suit and a pair of dress shoes, but these days, gents are taking fashion by storm with a more formal wardrobe. We’re all reminiscent of the roaring twenties through the fifties, around the time that suits and dress shirts started to die-out, and more modern clothing started to stick. Men actually enjoy looking their best, meaning you can choose between cufflinks, dressy boots, and shoes, or watches to complete their formal outfit (we have an insane catalog of watch buying guides depending on what they’re into).

Congratulate a special grad with custom graduation gifts and let them know how proud you are of their accomplishments. Gifts.com offers a variety of graduation gifts for her and him sure to mark the occasion with an extra dose of celebration.

This is a serious event in his life. He’s worked, planned, and gotten ready for this day for potential years. This calls for something for his business, something that he may one day pass down to his children when they inherit it. Custom frames for their first dollar, posh decorations for their office, or even a nice, strong bottle of top-shelf liquor with a custom label (that’s one they’ll probably bring home, but it’ll mean the world to them in their liquor cabinet).

Part of the reason that many men don’t know what they look good in, is because they’re embarrassed or uneducated. Up until a short while ago, societal issues made it awkward or nerve-racking for men to pay serious attention to their style. Those anxieties are instilled, and it’s a tough barrier to break. When they don’t know what they look good in, you have a safe area to bench on that most men will look good in, and it’s all about color matching.


Some exchanges may require you to bring a form of photo ID, even just for exchanges. If there’s a physical store, you can go for the same item in different colors or sizes, or as we mentioned, something of equal or lesser value. In the end, you could even grab the store credit, and transfer it over to the gentleman on your list who didn’t like the gift. That way, he’ll be able to go pick something out or use it with his own money for a larger purchase.
One of the easiest ways to keep a relationship fresh is to explore new things together, and cooking is a fun one to play with since you can do it together in the comfort of your own home, and then enjoy the delicious results (or have a new story of a cooking disaster to share!). This kit is clever: Your challenge is to roll the dice, each of which has a different food group or kind of ingredient on it (like cooking methods, grains, veggies, herbs and proteins), then try to concoct a dinner using the ingredients you rolled. Being creative together and problem-solving to build a meal will surely bring you closer together, especially if you don’t take it to seriously — and solve the problem with a glass of wine in hand.
As you’re building a home together, what usually happens is that you focus on the basics — sofas, shelves, beds and towels — then lose momentum when it comes to choosing the decorative accessories that really make your house a home. So start to nest a little with cool but still sentimental art that can serve as a starting point for a life of collecting art together. This small-ish print (it’s 14” square) can work in just about any room, as a standalone piece or as part of a gallery wall with an eclectic mix of artwork. It's the perfect gift for her, for a daily reminder of how much you love her. 
Still haven't been to the Polo Bar? Ralph Lauren's Kipton Mixologist Box lets you bring the designer's signature cocktail style with you wherever you go. The travel set includes a hand-cut crystal decanter, four matching glasses, a leather-bound book full of cocktail recipes, a bottle opener, six cocktail picks, four coasters, and a silver-plated brass jigger and nut bowl. Everything comes in a soigné saddle leather carrying case lined with Ralph Lauren's signature Wexford plaid.
How cute is this camera?! This is a great gift for people who love taking pictures and HAVING pictures. I bought and used the Instax Mini 9 at my wedding this year for guests to take photos of themselves. A friend also had the camera while we were traveling in Greece this summer, and I have some of those pictures hanging on my fridge. Great for adults, college students, and teens, this Fujifilm camera is an excellent gift.
We’ve spilled the beans about the different gift categories, everything about style, function, and the whole shebang. Now, it’s time to figure out what you should be focusing on dependent on what event or milestone in their lives that you’re going for. We’ve broken down a few major events in a man’s life where a gift can really make a meaningful impact.
The world's first automatic, all-grain homebrewing appliance, Pico is basically a Keurig for beer. Instead of K-cups, it uses prepackaged boxes of grains and hops from dozens of craft breweries to create whatever style of beer you choose. Whether you prefer a Rogue Dead Guy Ale from Oregon or a Whetstoner Session IPA from Vermont, the Pico allows you to brew up a batch at home. And while it's true that you could buy a hefty supply of beer for what the machine costs, there's nothing quite like tapping a keg of liquid you created yourself.
He works his fingers to the bone, and he’s being given a serious promotion. The kind of promotion where there’s going to be a celebration. Whether you’re orchestrating it or not, it’s up to you to get something that really makes an impact. These events don’t call for functional items, but rather, significant and personalized trophy-style gifts. Engraved pens, embroidered briefcases (for their new office), or a new custom nameplate for their new desk. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination. We’re personal fans of blending a few items with commemoration, and function. Things like custom mugs, custom luggage sets (if their new job means they’ll be traveling a lot and things of the sort.
Valid at worldmarket.com on ground shipping on a purchase of $65 or more, excluding items purchased for in-store pick up, and before taxes, shipping, and handling.

Accentuate a vintage bowl with delicate copper leaf to create one-of-a-kind decorative dishes perfect for holding everything from jewelry to keys. These decorative gifts are lovely, inexpensive, and ideal presents for friends and family during the holiday season. For first-timers, choose an simple design like our mistake-proof ragged copper edge. Finish with a clear spray sealer to ensure this Christmas gift spans the whole season. 
Well Played - If you want to throw some DIY in the mix and make it the most auspicious gift they’ll receive, this one’s pretty fun. All it takes is a large cardboard box, one sheet of wrapping paper, and a stapler. Put the box vertically, and make a 2x3 grid of circular cuts. Lay the wrapping paper along the inside and make it like a carnival game, while putting their gift behind one of the hole punches. It’s also fun to have them go through all of them without having the gift inside. When they turn around baffled, just hand it to them; you’re sure to get a laugh from the room.
When you’re looking for good anniversary gifts for her, or trying to pin down an assortment of anniversary presents for him, Gifts.com has what you need to make this a celebration they will never forget. You can find gifts for any wedding anniversary and every personality. Choose from 10th anniversary gift ideas for him or personalized gifts that he’s sure to love.
These DIY holiday succulent planters make a quick and inexpensive Christmas gift for mom (or anyone!) that will last for years. Succulents are an especially unique present with low-maintenance care, and they're perfect for mom, best friends, or co-workers. To create the personalized planter, wrap empty, clean tin cans with 1/4 inch braided red-and-white polypropylene rope. Secure the rope to the can as you wrap using a hot-glue gun. Slightly twist the rope to line up the candy cane-color stripes. Add an adorable Christmas gift tag using a thin piece of twine.

Another twist on the tried and true blue and green anniversary “stones” is a set of agate coasters in deep jewel tones of sapphire and emerald. Much like a marriage partnership, the true beauty of these stones is found inside and created only over the course of many years — an analogy you can use as a jumping-off point for a thoughtful card to accompany them. The set includes four coasters, each between 3.5” and 4.5”, and each totally unique as the variations are naturally grown in the stone. They are selected for their fine ocean shades and polished to a party-ready sheen. He can put them to use in his man cave or perhaps now he will actually use a coaster.
