Welcome to the ULTIMATE gift guide for him! (Make sure to scroll to bottom for an amazon giveaway until Nov 23rd 🙂 )
Yesterday, my husband posted this great piece on how to pick out the best gift on any budget. I would recommend reading that post first to get an idea on what type of gift you should lean towards. Understanding the gift recipient helps you pick out a meaningful, great gift. Price doesn’t always matter, but giving from the heart does!
With this gift guide for him, we have over 75 hand-picked items from my husband that he has either used and loved, knows someone who has the item and enjoys it, or it has the highest reviews. He took the time to make sure each item was good quality, for the best price. He is a tool man, fitness guru, and an outdoor enthusiast, so he has some great knowledge to share with you about picking out a gift for any man in your life.
How to Use the Ultimate Gift Guide for Him
Items that aren’t self explanatory, he has written a little about it and why it is such a good gift. You will notice the word Favorite! by a few items in each category. These are our favorite items that are the best bang for your buck and are really great products. Each category has a few stocking stuffer ideas as well.
If you have any questions about an item listed, leave us a comment! He will answer to the best of his ability! We wanted to create something that can help you find something for your husband, brother, son, dad, grandpa, uncle. It can be hard to buy for men, so I hope this can help!
For the Tool Man
This is a great mult-purpose tool for anyone who loves woodworking, small metal work like knife making, and more. It does sanding, polishing, and grinding on a small metal.
Favorite! 208 Piece Screwdriver Bit Set ($30.00)
This is a must have among any handy man. Anyone who has a drill will really love this set! It holds all the bits and drivers in one set so things don’t get lost. Excellent starter kit for someone who has a drill.
And if they don’t have a drill yet, this is a great household drill.
This is a great tool for anyone who needs to measure angles for fence work or building. This takes away all the math for finding angles.
Most hoses that come with any air compressor are PVC hoses which are hard to roll up and bend. It can be very frustrating! Buying a rubber hose is the way to go for an air compressor. Make sure you pick the right fittings for the air compressor.
**Stocking Stuffer** Red Coupler & Plug Kit ($12.79)
This is the part that goes with the air hose to connect it to the air compressor. This size will vary depending on the air compressor, so make sure to take a picture of the size before buying to make sure it’s the correct size.
This unit is great! It can jump start a car, air up a tire, and plug in your phone. Perfect for anyone who travels or commutes. If you are stranded or battery dies, this will jump you off or air your tire.
This is an alternative to the one above. It is a cheaper, smaller version. While it won’t air up a tire, it is perfect to keep in your car if your battery dies. Perfect for traveling since it’s compact.
The Maglite is famous for their durable aircraft aluminum lights. They now make one in LED, so it has more lumen power. If you buy this for a gift, see the stocking stuffer below. The mounting racks make it easy to keep anywhere like your car, a wall, garage, etc. Every handy man needs a good dependable light.
**Stocking Stuffer** Maglite Black Universal Mounting Brackets for D-Cell Flashlight ($6)
Specific for the flashlight above.
This work sharp knife and tool sharpener is our top favorite probably in the entire list. It will sharpen ANY tool or knife. You will never have a dull knife or tool in the house again including serrated.
The pocket hole jig is what we used to build this coffee table. Perfect for anyone who builds furniture, it hides all the screws and joints. A pocket hole joint is one of the strongest joints, and the fastest to create.
**Stocking Stuffer** Dowel and Tenon Centers ($8)
A dowel and tenon center is used to mark your holes if you are making a dowel/peg joint. Anyone who likes old school carpentry uses these pegs instead of nails.
This is a must have for anyone who has a circular (Skil saw). Circular saws are hard to get straight cuts with, but this gives perfect straight lines every time. It will work for any brand.
This is like the one above, but allows you to cut larger things like a sheet of plywood.
For the Outdoor Man
The Nikon Range Finder also accounts of the angle as well as distant. A range finder for anyone who likes to shoot rifles, golf or archery.
This is pistol only. You can use these over and over again. These making shooting more fun! Instead of paying several hundred dollars for a dueling tree, you can set these up.
These are smaller than the one above, so it will require more skill to hit them. It is a good route for a lower budget.
These targets walk down range as you shoot them! Must have gift for anyone who owns an AR-15 Rifle.
Great gift for a camper! It can also be used in your house for emergencies.
**Stocking Stuffer**Clip-on Hat Light Hands Free for Hunting Camping Fishing ($11)
**Stocking Stuffer**Leatherman – Wingman Multi-Tool, Stainless Steel ($30) (Picture Below)
When it comes to lenses, you get what you pay for. We have three different price ranges listed. This one is more for anyone who hikes or backpack.
This is a little better quality than the cheaper one, so it is a great option if it fits your price range.
This is definitely for someone who is a more serious hunter.
For the Grill Man
**Stocking Stuffer** Digital Meat Thermometer ($16)
Favorite! Pro Food Dehydrator ($58)
An electric smoker is great for someone who likes to smoke things, but doesn’t have time or have the option to prep with wood and fire. You can make jerky or roast a turkey! It is very versatile.
**Stocking Stuffer**Meat Smoking Guide Outdoor Magnet ($6.99)
This grill does it all! Many people get unsatisfied with just propane since you can’t smoke anything. With this, you can smoke and grill at the same time, with charcoal or propane. This is a great outdoor kitchen option!
Ideas not online: Buying some nice meat like a box of steaks!
For the Fitness Guy
All the books we have in this section are great for anyone who doesn’t have time to get a trainer, go to the gym or stay motivated! These books have great options for anyone who enjoys working out.
**Stocking Stuffer** Bodyweight Cross Training WOD Bible: 220 Travel Friendly Home Workouts ($11)
These ropes are a favorite among boxers or people who do boxing workouts. This is more of a conditioning tool.
This is for serious cross fit people. You load the sled up with weights and push or pull it. We like this one because you can push AND pull it.
Having a set of dumb bells at home allows you to do almost any workout. Buying a set of dumb bells is extremely expensive, but these adjustable ones are a cheaper option. You still get all the weights like a full set!
This is a little cheaper than the one above. Perfect for someone who has a garage gym because you can drop this on the ground. They are very durable.
Ideas not online: Favorite workout protein, vitamins or preworkout. Buying a class or certificate to a class like Jui Jitsu.
