I’m sure you’ve seen the same whiskey glasses, whiskey stones, fancy alcohol, spice challenge pack, new wallet, and multi-tool pens on every gift list for men for every holiday.

Or, on the other end of the spectrum, extremely expensive furniture or tech, like a new 80-inch TV.

Now, I think I have 100% proven that I can give you better ideas than THOSE. I put together a list of 50 things for the holidays, and I freaking stand by it. They were awesome picks (see it below).

As a note, NONE of the links in this post is an affiliate — this is just a guide I put together and ideas from years of living with and loving a hard-to-buy-for husband. Also, I really love buying gifts for people.

It has a strainer in the screw-top and makes cleaning up loose tea super easy. He uses it a lot and really likes how sleek and easy it is. (If you buy 2, you get a free bag of loose-leaf tea, which he, unfortunately, did not like.)
  • Whether it’s coffee, tea, or another hot beverage, some people…
