Under $50: Gifts For Him

Am I the only one who thinks men are difficult to shop for? I feel like they already own everything they want [or is that just my boyfriend?] so we're left to gift them all the [typically, boring, in my opinion] things they typically wouldn't buy for themselves.
Growing up with two brothers, I've learned it's pretty difficult to get your sizes right when buying clothing for men so I only included one basic tee in the set, because those are almost guaranteed to fit, and a sweatshirt that would be a good layering piece. Again, all items included are $50 or less [you can see my previous gift guide for the Glam Girl here]! Click on items to shop!


Socks are fun. Socks are cool. Socks are fashionable. Socks are great conversation starters in a waiting room [if you're a Talkative Tony].




The first gift options that always come to mind for me, for men, is ridiculous socks, cologne, fancy travel bags, belts, wallets, ties, athletic gear, items that have to do with booze, ect. [like I said, boring... except for maybe the last one]. Other ideas include buying them tickets to a game, gift cards to their favorite stores or restaurants, surprising them by pre-paying for a month or so of their gym membership payments, planning a weekend getaway for the two of you [or his buds?], purchasing a few items for his BFF [see leather dog leash above]. 
After all of these gifts he'll be receiving, he's going to need a few thank you cards, right? One of my addictions is stationary and you know men aren't going to buy these for themselves.

I'd love to hear what your go-to gifts are for the men in your life.
Ready, GO!

    1. Right? Super convenient. I'm all about the "tech gloves" that allow us to still use our phones while wearing the gloves!
      Thanks, girl!

  4. Oh such a great tips dear. I always have difficulties buying something great :) For example this birthday I didn't want to buy any sweater to my hubby so I bought him one hour on shooting gun range. He was so surprised and oh my God so happy. Something different at least :) Mel

  10. Hello Deanna! Thanks for sharing because I do have a hard time buying a gift for my better half. And when I ask him he always says he doesn't need anything and it drives me nuts! I mean, I don't need anything either but there are a lot of things I want:-) Anyways, I end up buying clothes for him except jeans or pants because of the sizing. He loves wine so I always include a good bottle of wine. Thanks for sharing beautiful! Take care, Jeannette
