It seems like just yesterday we were casually strolling through the park talking all things Halloween with our PSL in hand. But alas, that time has passed, which can only mean one thing — the holiday shopping season is upon us. That’s right — the holidays are just around the corner, so it is officially time for you to get yourself together and tackle that holiday shopping list. Shopping for Mom and co. might be pretty straightforward this year (no doubt thanks to the many Instagram pics they’ve tagged you in as a not-so-subtle hint). But dudes? They’re always a bit of a challenge. Trying to decode shrugs, grunts and the dreaded “I don’t need anything” to figure out what they truly want is one of life’s greatest frustrations. Since we’ve already set you up with perfect presents for Pops, it’s time to turn our attention to the other gents in your life who deserve a little somethin’ somethin’ this holiday season. Scroll below for our gift guide featuring the 17 best gifts for him this year. See?! We’ve got you.


Sure, you could get him a generic bathrobe or some run-of-the-mill boxers (he probably needs those too, though), but the holiday season is really all about getting that great guy in your life a gift that reads more rustic and refined than boring and basic.
