Let’s be honest: Shopping for men is difficult. Whether it’s your boyfriend, husband, new casual hookup you haven’t DTR’d with yet, or man in your immediate family, it’s tricky to show men you care with purchased goods. That’s why this year, we’re helping you out by finding you the best Christmas gifts for men this holiday season.
SPY editors spend all year long hunting down the best gift ideas for men, including plenty of options for those impossible to shop for men. In the past year, we’ve made a list of the best gadgets, grooming products, fashion essentials and more goodies. We also recently narrowed down the best men’s products in The 2021 Man, our annual awards, to ensure you’re gifting the best items money can buy.
Smart home devices could be the ticket if he’s an undercover geek who loves gizmos. He might be a spirits connoisseur whose bar could benefit from some fancy tequilas or glassware upgrades. He may be the simple type that values practical EDC accessories like Bluetooth trackers or noise-canceling headphones. Whichever gifting direction you’re going in, we’ve got options on this list.
By now, you should have a pretty good idea of what he loves. And if you’re still unsure, check out our list of must-have gifts for men to help narrow your selections. These men’s gift ideas span every category and price point, including gadgets, booze, cooking appliances, fashion essentials, and other cool finds.
Read on to find the 77 best Christmas gifts for men in 2022.
Amazon eGift Card
We know that it’s kind of a cop-out, but it’s always a great last-minute gift to consider. And, let’s keep it real — you’re getting very last minute. Christmas is just a few days away! If none of these options pique your fancy, consider getting your favorite guy a gift card for the holidays this year. Amazon has just about any kind of gift card under the sun, so whether he loves Amazon, Applebee’s, Starbucks, Bass Pro Shops, Lowe’s or anything else, Amazon probably has a gift card for it.
One you can’t go wrong with? This e-card you don’t even have to print out. It’s probably the easiest gift for men you can buy this year.
Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Generation)
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you likely already know that Apple released an updated version of their incredibly popular AirPods Pro. Gen 2 is here and we’re already anticipating that they’ll be the hottest Christmas gift for men this year without a doubt. These noise-canceling wireless earbuds are built to be totally sweat and water-resistant to keep them safe. In addition, anticipate serious noise reduction with active noise cancelation and multiple ear tips for many ear sizes.
DeWalt 20-Volt MAX Cordless Combo Drill Kit
A drill might not seem like the sexist gift around, but for the right man it’ll make the perfect present this holiday season — the DIY dad, fix-it husband or brother who’s obsessed with home improvement. This combo drill kit from DeWalt is available for $90 off at The Home Depot as part of their Black Friday savings and comes both a compact drill/driver as well as an impact driver and a tool bag for easy storage. All of DeWalts drills are compatible with the same batteries and chargers which makes powering them up very easy and they’re also all made with brushless, durable motors with long battery life and designed to power through tough jobs. This makes them user-friendly for beginners and built well so seasoned fix-it men will appreciate their durability.
Vuori Sunday Performance Joggers
To say that we’re in love with Vuori’s Sunday Performance Joggers would be an understatement. Our Reviews Editor Anthony Mastracci is so obsessed that he barely can find the courage to take them off. Sure, these might be a pricy pair of pants (especially when it comes to athleisure), but once you snag these as one of the best Christmas gifts for men this year, you’ll be wondering why you didn’t buy yourself a pair, too. With moisture-wicking properties, immense stretch, a soft in and exterior, and a recycled construction, these will become a new favorite.
TurboAnt X7 Max Folding Electric Scooter
It seems that everyone living in a major city has an electric scooter to help them get around town these days — and for good reason. Our editor Tyler Schoeber was recently gifted the TurboAnt X7 Max Folding Electric Scooter and it’s fully amplified the way he travels around the city of Chicago. With a 32-mile range and a maximum speed of up to 20 mph, anything from drinks with friends to grocery runs has become easy and fun for Tyler. Plus, this scooter is ideal for dudes living in cities without too much closet space. Why? Because it folds, reducing the need to stick a massive scooter in a small space. Your giftee can slip it right under his bed or in the only closet he’s got in his studio apartment. Trust us; this is the high-ticket gift he’s been waiting for.
Carhartt Montana Loose Fit Insulated Jacket
Your giftee has likely been wearing the same jacket for the past few years. This year, surprise him with a roomy insulated jacket from a brand every guy loves: Carhartt. Seriously, with Carhartt, it’s impossible to go wrong. This ultra-cozy jacket is made totally wind and water-resistant to keep your man warm and dry no matter what this winter is going to bring. With interior and exterior pockets, he can keep his belongings on him wherever he chooses for ultimate security. Topped off with a hood, he will have no issue staying warm this season.
TUSHY Classic 3.0 Bidet
Everyone should have a bidet, and that’s final. People need to focus more on clean booties than they realize and stop fearing a chilly splash of water on their behind. Trust us when we say your giftee’s life will change after they get their first bidet, and there’s no better option to consider than the Classic 3.0 from TUSHY. This bidet is easy as 1-2-3 to attach and uses no electricity to get the job done. Best part? It’s almost always on sale. Right now, you can pick up the Classic 3.0 for just under $100. Yeah. You’re welcome.
Our Place Mini Always Pan
Visually speaking, it’s hard not to fall in love with the Always Pan. But once you put it to the test, you’ll find it hard not to get down on one knee and propose to your piping hot pan of roasted veggies. If you’re a big fan of Always Pan, consider the Mini — Our Place’s most recent addition to the cooking space. The Mini Always Pan is the pan that can do it all by working to replace eight different pieces of traditional cookware, but this time, in a tinier format. You’ll replace your fry pan, saute pan, steamer, skillet, saucier, saucepan, non-stick pan, spatula and spoon rest with this baby. Our Place also released a Mini of their Perfect Pots and Cast Iron Pans as well, so be sure to check those out if they’re more of your giftee’s style.
Best part? These items from Our Place are all on sale right now at the lowest prices we’ve ever seen them.

Jose Cuervo Reserva de la Familia Extra Anejo
If you’re going to gift a bottle of hard liquor this year, gift Jose Cuervo. Cuervo’s award-winning Reserva de la Familia is the brand’s award-winning 100% blue agave extra-añejo that’s made solely in limited quantities. To keep it real with you, it’s delicious. Sip it straight or mix it in a cocktail for a Christmas he will (or maybe won’t) remember.
Braun Series 9 Electric Razor for Men
The Braun Series 9 is really one of the most impressive bald head shavers and electric razors we’ve ever come across. It has a long battery life, can be used in wet and dry circumstances and shave your hair down the skin effortlessly. The only issue? It’s so pricy. This is why it makes a great Christmas gift, the kind of grooming device a man puts on his Christmas list knowing it’s a big ask, but expecting that because it’s Christmas, it might just be possible. This time around, the Braun Series 9 is available at 38% off, bringing that price point down dramatically. Trust us when we say this is the grooming gift of the year.
Taco vs Burrito
No Christmas is done right without a card game. It’s just the way the cookie crumbles. One of the best gifts to give for Christmas this year is Taco vs Burrito, the family-friendly game made for two to four people. This is a new strategy game dreamed up by a seven-year-old (yes, really) and is way too much fun for anyone seven and up, making this the perfect gift for men this year.
Moleskine Classic Notebook
You simply can’t go wrong with a Moleskine notebook. This sleek, classic lined notebook is perfect for taking notes in 2023. It’s something he’ll most certainly use and a gift that will surely keep his life on track — because we all know that’s something he desperately needs to do.
Oura Ring Gen3
The Oura Ring isn’t your average band. This stylistically technological piece of equipment makes for one of the lowest-key yet coolest gifts for men you can purchase all year. This ring uses sensors to help improve both your physical and mental health over time. It ranges your sleep from a score of 1 to 100, it is able to detail your blood oxygen level, it knows when you’re working out, picks up your heart rate and more. With details fully available through a downloadable app on your smartphone, this is the most discreet way to track your daily health in 2022.
Material Kitchen The reBoard
The reBoard is one of our new favorite gifts for foodies this holiday season. Why? Well, because it’s likely the most sustainably made cutting board on the planet, it packs a serious punch. This cutting board comes in a number of different colors to add a bit of spice to your kitchen. While doing so, it’s made 100% of only kitchen plastic scraps and renewable sugarcane. This board is as sturdy as it gets and will only cost buyers $35 total. Talk about one of the most unique gifts for men this year!
SAXX Underwear DropTemp Cooling Cotton Underwear
If there’s anything on this planet that makes the best Christmas gift for any adult male, it’s underwear. Because we’re sure he needs a new pair no matter what the case may be. The best underwear on this planet comes from none other than SAXX Underwear. Sure, it’s pricy, but it’s pricy for a reason. Each pair is exceptionally comfortable, will hold your junk without ever needing to fix, and never rolls. SAXX’s brand-new DropTemp Cooling Cotton Underwear is a game-changer for the brand. It quite literally can keep you cool throughout the day, dries quickly and even wicks moisture. Try getting that from another pair of undies.
ALITY Designs My Dad’s Jacket
ALITY Designs is a brand that focuses on effortlessly comfortable, gender-neutral clothing. So, as much as their “My Dad’s Jacket” can be considered one of the best gifts for men, it can also be considered a solid gift for anyone else. This classic all-weather jacket prioritizes comfort through a purposefully oversized fit. It’s got that “I feel like I’ve owned this my whole life” feel from the second he’ll throw it on, but it doesn’t dismiss any stylish details he might be looking for as we throw ourselves into 2023. Pick his poison in moss or asphalt for a classically cool look.
The Original Slinky
Whether he’s 1 or 100, one easy gift trumps all others: the Slinky. This walking spring toy is made for hours and hours of mindless fun, no matter how old he is. Watch it go down the stairs, create obstacles, throw it off the couch — whatever. No matter how he uses his Slinky, we’re sure it will instantly bring him back to childhood.
SMIRLY Charcuterie Board
It’s charcuterie board season, folks. And this year, it’s time to help your man ditch that cutting board he’s been using for his yearly cheese (or maybe even butter) display for a genuine charcuterie board. This option from SMIRLY comes with everything he could possibly need for the ultimate board nobody was expecting. Each bamboo board comes with two interior slabs that extend out for maximized space in addition to a section that holds cheese-cutting knives and a wine opener. Not only that, but each board comes with a separate tray to hold fruit. Gifting this board this holiday season will surely become one of his favorite gifts of all time — and that we’re sure of.
Fulton & Roark LTD Res No. 13: Lost man
Fragrances have always been a gifting staple, especially between partners. If your man is still struggling to find his next signature scent, pause his Scentbird subscription and give him one of the best fragrances in one of the most unique formats available: in a solid body. Fulton & Roark creates a number of deliciously-scented fragrances all sold in solid waxes. These are ideal for the guy who constantly travels with a carry-on instead of checking his bag. Plus, every single fragrance of the brand smells incredible. One of their more recent scents is Lost Man, which has an outdoorsy, masculine and almost feral scent.
Monos Metro Backpack
For any short or long-term traveler, the Monos Metro Backpack is the best personal item in existence. This bag has a pocket for everything and a Dopp kit on the exterior, so you don’t have to cram it inside. Yes, it does come off; no, it’s not easy to steal. Monos uses a QuickSnap system that’s super difficult to tamper with, so you can take it off if you simply have to. Not only that, but it’s visually striking with either nylon or vegan leather looks.
Chubbies Classic Swim Trunks
No matter what time of year, Chubbies’ line of men’s swim trunks makes for one of the best gifts you can buy any guy. These are essentially the swim trunks of all swim trunks, so every dude needs a pair in 2022. With a slew of funky patterns (like these rainbow… uh… cocks) and inseams ranging from 4″, 5.5″ and 7″, these make one of the best Christmas gifts for any modern man.
Echo Show 10
Everyone should have an Echo device at this point, and right now, the Echo Show 10 is one of our favorites for the 2022 holiday season. This is a super cool gift for men, especially for men that love technology. This third-generation Echo device is a must for folks who started with one of Echo’s screenless devices and is looking for something a little more high-tech. In addition to being a visual standout, speaker, and overall likely the most helpful device in your home, the Echo Show 10 has a camera that will allow you to talk with family and check on the interior of your home when you aren’t home through the Alexa app. Robbers? We’ve never heard of ’em!
Mustard The Lowdown
It might be a bit bizarre to pick out a piece of furniture for someone, especially when it’s as specific as some of the products are at Mustard, but we can’t help ourselves. The Lowdown is just too dang cool. This high school locker-esque storage unit is ideal for anyone who loves a pop of color in their home. Here, he can store just about whatever he needs while adding some spunk to his home decor. Or, even more, this could be a funky addition to his storage shed or garage. You know so that he can keep his tools and such in a funkier format.
YETI Rambler 10 oz Stackable Mug
No matter how many mugs someone has, there’s always room for new mugs. We don’t make the rules; it’s just how the world works. The YETI Rambler Stackable mug is one of the best Christmas gifts for men this year because it’s so versatile. Not only will it keep liquids hot as hell, but also bone-chilling cold. Perfect for coffee to ice cream to stews to iced teas. If he loves to camp, ski or be outside? As one of the best YETI gifts, this is a genuine no-brainer.
KOMALC Premium Buffalo Leather Toiletry Bag
Every true gent keeps his toiletries in a nice Dopp kit. Leave this grooming organizer on the countertop to prevent your man from stockpiling his shaving essentials atop the bathroom sink. We’ve included this buffalo leather goodie here because it’s a handsome, high-quality storage option any dude will love.
23andMe Health + Ancestry Service
We know, we know, some of you might think that 23andMe is sort of creepy at this point, but you can’t deny that it’s really cool. 23andMe makes for some of the easiest gifts to give this holiday season and each one thereafter. There are so many neat learnings your giftee can discover about heritage, carrier status, trait reports and more. If you know anyone that’s been a bit curious to learn a little more about themselves, now’s the time to help them discover.
Dollar Shave Club Double Header Electric Shaver
Need something to place inside that Dopp kit? Well, there’s a new sheriff in town. Pick up the Dollar Shave Club Double Header Electric Shaver. This all-new trimmer is the ideal body groomer for any man. Why? Because not only does it trim hair down to the skin, it also comes with guards he can use to trim to his desired length. In addition, this affordable trimmer/shaver hybrid comes with a second shaver he can use on his face. That’s right, that means he won’t have to use the same razor on his face that he does his pubes. You’re welcome.
Bearaby Tree Napper Weighted Blanket
Weighted blankets were one of the past year’s top gift ideas for men, no matter the time of year. Getting under a gravity blanket is like going to therapy if therapy could snuggle and calm your entire body. Unlike other weighted blankets, the Bearaby Tree Napper is built to be a more breathable and cooling alternative to the otherwise claustrophobic choices on the internet. It’s made with TENCEL instead of a filling, so you’ll never have to fear this thing busting open and spraying filling or beads all over your bed. Plus, Bearaby released several new colors we’re sure your giftee will love.
If you’re an avid reader of SPY, there’s a solid chance you know about Theragun at this point. Theragun is the massage gun of all massage guns, but we’re not going to lie; they get pretty pricey. Though the Therabody brand released a number of new products in recent months that exceed their massage line, we couldn’t help but suggest one of their top-rated, massage guns yet again this holiday season. But this time, we suggest snagging their more affordable option — Theragun Mini. At half the price, this massage gun is definitely more affordable and will feel excellent gliding over his sore muscles. Maybe he will even let you use it a couple of times, so it’s a win-win.
Clarks Atticus LT Lace British Tan Leather
Every single man needs a handsome pair of formal shoes, and Clarks is the place to snag them. These smart lace-ups keep a comfortable temperature no matter how sweaty their feet get and keep that cool-as-a-cucumber look at all times. They’re designed with an EVA footbed that’s recycled and a breathable leather that makes them, yes, wearable without socks.
Bentgo MicroSteel Heat & Eat Container
He’s always been told he can’t place metal in the microwave, hasn’t he? Well, Bentgo’s MicroSteel Heat & Eat Containers are about to blow his mind the same way they did ours. These containers use steel that can go inside the microwave for up to 10 minutes without any heat-related issues. Using zero plastic whatsoever makes these an excellent option for folks looking to go plastic-free.
Crocs Classic Clog
One of the best Christmas gifts for men in 2022? Crocs. Who would have thought that the world’s ugliest shoe would be one of the most popular brands of the past year? Definitely not us. Safe to say, they’ve made a comeback. Crocs are some of the most comfortable, breathable, lightweight shoes your favorite guy will ever own. They come in almost every color under the sun and are available in several different styles.
Anker Wireless PowerWave Pad & Stand Chargers Bundle
Are you tired of having your smartphone charger “borrowed” by that special someone? Well, now you can spoil them with not one but two wireless charging solutions to calm their low-battery anxiety. This two-in-one Anker bundle is one of those sweet under-the-radar deals you’d be a fool to pass up on, giving you the company’s popular wireless charging stand and pad for only $26.
Both are powerful enough to juice up your iPhone or Samsung Galaxy phone quickly without having either device tethered to a charging cable. They’re also portable, so he’ll be able to carry them to the office and back home with ease. This Anker charging pad is one of the year’s best men’s gift ideas for the tech-obsessed man in your life.
Crockpot Electric Lunch Box
We’re obsessed with the Crockpot Electric Lunch Box. There’s no other way to put it. Thanks, TikTok. For anyone that’s bored of the classic PB&J, this electric lunch box makes it possible to have more extensive meals in the office. So, yes, he can finally heat up that ice block of soup; he can create his own on-desk stew or even DIY a steak. Slow cooking made mobile.
Keep in mind that this product arrives after Christmas. Although this is the case, we still believe it to be one of the best gifts for men in 2022.
WOVTE Bear Claw Black Telescopic Back Scratcher
A back scratcher? Yup, a back scratcher. As one of the most random gifts on this list that he’ll use, an extendable back scratcher will hit all those spots he can’t reach when you’re not there. It’s not too sharp or too dull, so it will combat any back itches without leaving any marks. Year after year, this has been one of the best Christmas gifts for men simply because of how useful it is. So, while you’re at it, maybe pick one up for yourself, too.
Marshall Woburn III Bluetooth Wireless Speaker
It’s hard not to love Marshall’s timeless looks and tremendous sound quality. This brand-new Bluetooth speaker is a powerful (yet pricey) must-have that can sit on your bookshelf without too much space. It’s super easy to connect and great to bring on the go. Unlike a number of its competitors, it has the ability to handle extremely low base and can hook up to the TV for sound where you want it. Trust us, this will quickly become his newest prized possession.
Pura d’Or Beard Oil
We’ve tested many of the best beard oil here at SPY.com over the past year, and Pura d’Or Beard Oil is one of our absolute favorites. This beard oil has a natural formula that moisturizes and nourishes beards with a blend of argan oil, jojoba oil, sandalwood oil, grapefruit peel oil and bergamot oil. Plus, at just under $12 a bottle, it’s one of the year’s best gifts for men, full send.
Bellroy Hide & Seek Wallet
Leather wallets are one of the most handsome gifts to give men, no matter the occasion. We suggest you replace whatever he’s currently using with this gorgeous leather Hide & Seek wallet from Bellroy. It’s got several spaces where you can store credit cards and cash with a slew of colors to choose from. Not only that, but the wallet is RFID-blocking and is backed by a three-year warranty.
In 2021, we named the Bellroy Hide & Seek the best overall men’s wallet, and it’s also one of our go-to gift ideas for men in 2022.
Harry’s Truman Razor Set
For the second year in a row, we’ve named Harry’s Truman Razor the best men’s razor in the world. This set comes with the shave club’s weighted handle, replacement blades, and Harry’s award-winning shaving gel. You can buy this gift set via Amazon Prime, which makes it one of the year’s best gifts for men under $25.
Roku Streaming Stick+
Is he still paying for cable? In… 2022? Why? What’s the point when we live in a world that makes streaming movies and television through Roku’s Streaming Stick+ completely effortless? He can watch and listen to just about anything he could ever want with Roku. Live TV, streaming platforms like Netflix, Paramount Plus and HBO Max, and even services such as YouTube, Spotify and Apple Music. For just under $45, this no-brainer has been one of the coolest gifts for men yearly.
Skull Shaver Pitbull Gold PRO
Is he losing his hair? Give him the motivation he needs and help him buzz the rest of his hair right off. The Skull Shaver Pitbull Gold PRO is the best bald head shaver we have ever come to know.

Carhartt Tool Bags
Does your man need a reliable tool bag to keep his equipment organized, stored, and easily portable? Enter the Carhart Legacy. This carrier bag has the brand’s signature aesthetics and logo patch, but it also has durable materials and lots of room, including a zippered main compartment, 17 exterior pockets and 10 interior pockets. It’s nearly indestructible with an abrasion-resistant base, sturdy haul handles, and triple needle-stitch construction.
It won’t transform the man of the house into Tim “The Toolman” Taylor, but it should encourage him to start those pet projects he promised years ago.
Fresh Clean Threads Best Sellers 5-Pack
Just like underwear, your man can always use a pack of fresh, clean tees. Thankfully, there’s a brand geared explicitly toward providing folks with the freshest, cleanest tees on the market. Who, you ask? Well, Fresh Clean Threads (previously Fresh Clean Tees). This 5-pack is soft as hell and as good-looking as it gets, making for one of the best gifts for men this season. We’re always searching for the best men’s T-shirts, and this year we fell in love with this brand’s soft and long-lasting tees.
SPY AWARD WINNER
eufy by Anker RoboVac X8 Hybrid
Gifting a vacuum seems funny if we’re talking about 15 years ago, but it’s 2022, people. Vacuums have changed a ton since then. Everyone wants a robot vacuum that will do that tireless, annoying job for them, so snag the eufy by Anker’s newest: the RoboVac X8 Hybrid.

The Yonder is YETI’s only non-insulated bottle option, making it easy to carry around and ultra-accessible for whatever the day brings.
Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2
So, he still doesn’t have a security camera at his front door? What is this? 2008? At this point, everyone should have some security at their front door in case of intruders, stolen items or just to see when the in-laws are dropping by. The Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2 is the highest-end option that makes one of the best gifts for men this year. It sits at the front door and can alert users on their smartphone or Alexa device who is at the door whenever someone is.

Your giftee is about to become the nosiest neighbor in the neighborhood.

LG OLED evo C2 Series Alexa Built-in 4k Smart TV
In 2021, we named the LG C1 OLED TV the best TV of the year. But, here’s the thing: in 2022, this TV got an update we’re borderline obsessed with. Meet the SPY-reviewed and loved LG OLED eco C2 TV. This TV is absolutely one to rave about and is often on sale. This beauty brings video to life to provide the most richly intense colors you’ve ever seen on a screen. Google Assistant and Alexa are built-in, depending on whose name you call out to help you do most tasks.
Complete with Cinema HDR, Dolby Vision IQ and Dolby Atmos, you’ll feel so immersed in what you’re watching that you might even convince yourself you’re there. By including a9 Gen5 AI Processor 4K, this TV also has the ability to automatically adjust your settings for the best visual experience you can have while watching TV. Our reviewer loves this option so much that he even mentioned it being 100% worth the price.
Of course, if a premium OLED TV isn’t in your current gifting budget, you can also check out our guide to the best affordable flat-screen TVs that are still worth the money.
Single & Fat Olive Oil
Olive oil sets typically make a great gift, but this year we’re suggesting something a little different. Single & Fat is a new olive oil brand that’s releasing single-batch, cold-pressed, certified organic olive oil in larger vats you see in the supermarket. But, this olive oil is nothing like what he sees in the supermarket. Each comically-named, fun-packaged oil is delicious on its own as much as it is for cooking. This is sure to become a new favorite and is also simply a funny gift to give any single foodie.
Brooklinen Super-Plush Robe
Year after year, bathrobes are some of the most popular gift ideas for men and women alike. After all, the king of the house deserves a warm, comfy bathrobe. Our favorite bathrobe of all time? The Brooklinen Super-Plush Robe. This unisex robe is perfect for chilly mornings around the house or relaxing moments after the shower. It’s also made with 100% Turkish cotton, so you already know this will be his go-to. His reaction when seeing this on the bathroom door after a strenuous workday will be that of a grateful husband.
Vitruvi Cloud Cool Mist Humidifier
We’re all about self-care here at SPY and that’s not stopping at a robe. Next up, we want to inform you about the best humidifier we’ve ever had the experience of testing. The Vitruvi Cloud Cool Mist Humidifier is as helpful as it is visually gorgeous. For dry winters, this humidifier sits as part of the furniture to hydrate your air and help improve sleep, skin and natural immunity. In our experience, it isn’t a placebo, either. Our skin has looked and felt better after sleeping right near the humidifier and we’ve had better sleep as a result of using it. This is really a humidifier we can stand by and we’re sure your man will, too.
L.L.Bean Wicked Good Moccasins
Slippers don’t come any cozier than the L.L.Bean Wicked Good Moccasins. Slipping them on feels like running your toes through an expensive shearling rug, keeping his feet warm and relaxed when roaming around your castle. Color options include black, brown, chocolate, graphite and kelp. Think about it, who doesn’t love a cozy slipper? No one, so this slipper is seriously an excellent gift for men.

It’s 2022, and guys can enjoy self-care now, too.
Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
