HEATHER’S HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE: Gifts for guys {Heather's Handmade Life}

***********************************

I hate the idea, in theory, of picking out “gifts for guys” — like, who’s to say they’re ONLY gifts for guys? Would other people not enjoy these items equally?
It makes my feminism a little twitchy, HOWEVER I have to be honest about the fact that I do struggle when it comes to gift ideas for my own husband (and my dad, and my father-in-law, and my brothers-in-law.)
Soooo I put my thinking cap on (and flat-out asked my husband about the stuff he and his friends would like to get for Christmas), and here we have it …

1. A cool T-shirt from a show he likes.

I’ve gone this route many times in the past, and will again! Darling Husband is currently hooked on something called Diesel Brothers, so I know he’d like this one. Basically, go to the Discovery Store (a.k.a. most husbands’ favourite channel) and click on whatever show you keep (annoyingly) hearing in the background of your life. You’re done.

2. The most comfortable underwear ever.

For my husband, it’s MeUndies. Now that he’s built up a sizeable collection, he literally hates when they’re in the wash (or, you know, stuck partway in the wash cycle because I got distracted sewing) and he has to wear “regular” underwear a.k.a the stuff from Walmart he used to wear every damn day of his life. (You can even buy monthly subscriptions and LOL at a grown man happy about getting NEW UNDERPANTS IN THE MAIL lolololol)

3. A funky multi-tool.

Hilariously, you know who has this in our house? Our seven-year-old son! He had an Indigo gift card and I couldn’t talk him into buying books — he wanted this 10-in-1 hammer tool thingy, and he LOVES it. He’s always taking it into the backyard to “build furniture” (saw hunks of wood with the little saw blade). It’s adorable. And, well, maybe grown-up boys would also like it? (Darling Husband has many of these in his dresser drawers, but not as sleek as this wooden one.)

4. Something to feed their video game addiction.

I know, I know. It’s annoying when they’re glued to those video games, isn’t it? But here’s the thing: if he games, he’s going to be buying games (or “expansion packs,” which I frequently hear about before they sneak onto the joint credit credit). Might as well pre-pay for that next game or add-on.

5. A 4K TV.

Hahahahahahahaha am I done laughing yet? Nope! Hahahaha. My husband is making me include this because he wants one and he’s sure other guys do, too. (I will not be buying him a 4K TV this year. Let’s be clear.)

6. Something to make their beard slightly more appealing.*

*Other than shaving it off entirely, which is what you really want for Christmas.

BONUS IDEAS*

  • Beer (I mean, you’re gonna be buying it anyway, soooo …)
  • Socks (See above)
  • Sudoko books (Keep him sharp so he can help the children with their homework someday.)
  • Candy (Not enough to give him diabetes, but enough to keep them away from the After Eights.)
  • Lottery tickets (If he wins, you both win. #marriage)

*May only be applicable to my own husband

  1. Haha all of these are more than applicable to my husband too. I bought him 3 PS4 games on Black Friday and a new controller because he has “worn his” out (he’s the only one that plays PS4 in our house so that tells you something…) this was hilarious to read!!

    • Hahah oh I bet my husband will wear out his controllers, too — he has TWO so he alternates between them, of course. (We did not need to buy two. I had been falsely under the impression I might play sometimes.)

So what do you think?
