The Best Gifts For Each & Every Man In Your Life

We'll be the first to admit we write a ton of gift guides for the women in our lives. Arguably, they're often easier to shop for. Finding truly unique presents for men requires a little extra thought. Even guy gift round-ups typically include the same old silver cuff links and video game consoles. While we're not knocking the plenty of men do love these things, they're probably just as bored receiving these options as we are gifting them.

So we've taken a break from pumping out gift guides for your feminist friends and soul sisters to conjure up out of the box gift ideas for every man in your life. From your real hubby to your work hubby, your grandpa to your boyfriend who might not yet "officially" be your boyfriend, we've tackled them all. Ahead, you'll find the first men's gift guide in history to not include a single headphone, pair of joggers, or a set of whiskey tumblers. Prepare to surprise them all with your soon-to-come gifting prowess.

At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. All product details reflect the price and availability at the time of publication. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
