2022 Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts for Men

Carhartt is a favorite for clothing in our house. You can’t beat their durability! For wonderful gifts for winter, there are so many great items to choose from. We love the Relaxed fit Duck Blanket Line Detroit Jacket for a rugged look in the cold winter air. It keeps you nice and warm and looks amazing on, without a lot of extra bulk. For casual wear, you can’t go wrong with a classic. Pick up one of Carhartt’s loose fit midweight sweatshirts to give your favorite guy for relaxing or working on projects. It wears so well and washes up great. If layering is your fave, owning one of Carhartt’s rain defender relaxed fit lightweight vests is a must! Perfect for when you don’t want to wear a heavier coat, but know you need a light layer to keep comfortable, this is a must-have.

Public Rec has great selections for all men. Their All Day Every Day Joggers designed for men are heavenly to wear, but we also are crazy about their Flex Shorts. Available in a variety of great looking colors, these shorts can literally take you through all the activities–running, weights, and even swimming. You can select lined or unlined and various inseam lengths for the perfect fit. These are a must-have for every guy. Not only do they have great clothes for the gym, but the have clothes that can you take you everywhere else in optimum comfort. Their pants, waffle-knit hoodies and their Better Than Down Bomber jackets deserve a place in every man’s wardrobe!

If your favorite guy has to get dressed up on the regular, check out this innovative brand, &Collar, for the best dress clothes he could ask for. Wrinkle free and ready to go, their clothes are absolutely incredible! I love their Pacific dress shirt for particularly hot climates. My son has to wear dress shirts every day in 100 degrees and more and these stand the test of the heat. He stays cool and dry, even though the sun is trying to melt him. Here’s the cool thing, these shirts are made from recycled plastic, about 15 plastic bottles to be exact. So wear these shirts knowing they are great for the environment and even better at keeping you comfortable. Pair their dress shirts (long and short sleeved) with a pair of their Range 2.0 pants and one of their ties for a complete look that will take you to the office, church and special occasions and keep you looking incredible.

For all your sunglass needs, we can’t rave about MethodSeven enough! These speciality polarized sunglasses come in a variety of styles and are available for a wide range or purposes. Whether you are a pilot (or just like the look of one), a grower, a trail runner, or just want to make sure you are protecting your eyes for everyday wear, they have you covered with a wide array or great looking styles. We love the Resistance 2 Sun Polarized glasses for a sleek wraparound. You can choose from several different lenses that cater to specific needs in this style, so be sure to check out all the variations. We also love the Evolution Sun Polarized that comes in a very hip tortoise shell or black finish. No matter the pair you choose, we know he will be very, very excited to open these on Christmas morning. Want to try them out for yourself or your favorite guy? Do it, you won’t be disappointed! While you are there, be sure to use code MOMMYAVENGER for a sweet 15% discount on your purchase!

We are absolutely loving Anson Belt & Buckle for men this holiday season. Need a new belt? They have you covered! These gorgeous belts can be purchased in gift packs, which is absolutely brilliant! No more picking out belts by size, because these belts don’t have holes in them. You can cut them to the perfect size you need. Each strap can accommodate most sizes ( 16″-50″). You can select a wide variety of belts and buckles (there are so many great options) and then you put your belt together. It’s super easy to do and there are tutorials on their site to guide you, if you need help. All you have to do is cut the excess off and you have a perfect customized belt that glides to latch. So comfortable and looks fantastic on. I recommend buying a 6 pack so that you can mix and match the different straps and buckles, maximizing the possibilities. A great gift idea!

Looking to upgrade his wallet game? Yeah, we think it’s about time to ditch the bulky wallets that leave him feeling unbalanced and overloaded and trade it in for an ultra sleek and high tech version. Check out Ekster for a variety of great looking and efficient wallets with a small profile that can sync up to your phone and allow it to be tracked. No more wondering where he put his wallet if he has a tracker in his Ekster–your wallet will play a cool tune to help you locate it. I also love their laptop sleeves (juniper green is a gorgeous color) to protect computers as your favorite guy is commuting to the office or school. These make a great gifts this holiday season!

For the guy that loves to go to the gym, we love new products from BlenderBottle! The Vooray x BlenderBottle Gym Bag is such a great design, with compartments for everything. Separate zippable shoe compartment, place for your cell phone, roomy main area for your clothes, and of course, the perfect sized pocket for your favorite BlenderBottle for pre or post workout drinks. It’s sleek profile and blast of inner color makes it the perfect gym bag. Speaking of your favorite BlenderBottle, you will want to see all the great varieties of bottles now available. There is a different style for everyone–guys, gals, teens, you name it! I love the Marvel Hero Elite Series Stainless Steel shakers, perfect for the one that is partial to a particular super hero. The Captain America stainless shaker is off the charts! I also love the limited edition Strada Insulated Stainless Steel in the USA Red. Show your love of the USA and keep your drinks cold 24 hours a day!

A great gift for those that love to exercise, or those who want to get better at exercising, is the Venu Sq 2 from Garmin. This watch is good for men or women and comes in a variety of colors and face sizes. Whichever one you pick, you will have selected a fantastic smartwatch and health tracker. It will track specific exercises, your steps, heart rate, sleep tracking, stress tracking, it has a pulse ox sensor, will track women’s health, gives you mindful breathing exercises, hydration tracking, and fitness tracking, of course. But, it still goes way beyond that. Use it as a coach, create your own workouts, get your texts and notifications, use it for safety and tracking, and even use Garmin Pay for contactless checkout in stores. This watch is amazing with all that it does. Not to mention, it’s water resistant and very comfortable to wear.

For those that want to go back to exercising in a fun way, we highly recommend grabbing a pair of your own Rollerblades. These Twister XT Rollerblades far surpass the inline skates we were first introduced to all those years ago. These are all about comfort and support (no more aching ankles) and excellent performance. A great way to upgrade your game or gift to someone who you know will love inline skating as much as you do. These Rollerblades are loaded with tons of great features and upgrades that will make you want to find any excuse to use them. Exercising–of course! Family time–definitely! Commuting to work–why not?!

I love giving personal gifts. I was recently introduced to MemoryStitch and I can’t rave about them enough! I’m sure your favorite guy has a stack of well-loved t-shirts from trips, college, sporting events and concerts that create a patchwork of incredible memories if all put together. That’s exactly what MemoryStitch thought when they made it possible for us to create one of kind patchwork t-shirt quilt made from those same t-shirts. This is the greatest gift idea and so simple to do. Simply visit their site, select the size of your blanket and begin the process. All you need to do on your end is select the correct number of t-shirts for the size you are creating. You can cut them to size, or for a small fee, let them do the work. Select the stitching and backing for your blanket. You ship it to them and that is where your efforts end. Before you know it, your t-shirts will be returned and transformed into a very special gift that will be cherished for years to come. I love that you can create something so meaningful and memorable so easily. The end product is absolutely wonderful! I got to try this out for myself and couldn’t be more thrilled with the results. Try it out yourself and get 30% off your order by using code THEMOMMYAVENGER30OFF good though January 1, 2023.

When it’s time to go out and exercise, I absolutely adore base layers from Smartwool. Available in various patterns for both men and women, they have you covered from the cold when it’s necessary to be outside. Their Men’s Classic All Season Merino 150 Baselayer is the perfect weight and an absolute essential for every man’s wardrobe. Made with their Core Spun technology, they have wrapped lightweight Merino around a nylon core for added durability, while still keeping the comfort of ultra-soft, responsibly-sourced Merino next to skin.

For outer layers, we love Smartwool’s Hudson Trail Fleece Vest. Available in many stylish colors, this super soft vest looks great on any occasion. You can use it for a layer or as an outer jacket to keep your core nice and warm. He will love it and want one in every color they have!

Give him some great new colognes this Christmas for an absolute steal. Such a great price, in fact, that you can pick up several varieties.  FragranceNet is the perfect place to find every spectacular fragrance you could ever want! Buy full sized bottles like Ralph Lauren Polo Blue Sport, gift sets like Z Zegna Cologne,  Ralph Lauren Variety 4 Piece Mini, which has not one, but four, varieties of favorite Ralph Lauren eau de toilettes like Polo, or the Calvin Klein Variety loaded with five different popular scents. We love the Gucci by Gucci Pour Homme! You can also load up on miniature sizes of colognes for stockings, too. You can find so many different well loved brands here, be sure to check them out!

For the guy that wants to up his golf game, we’ve got a great gift for him! GoSports Elite Golf Practice Net with steel frame is a perfect gift. It’s available in a 7′ or 10′ width option, paired with the golf hitting artificial turf mat, he can work on his game year round, even when it’s snowing outside. Easy to set up indoors or outdoors, this sturdy practice net can withstand heavy use. You can even purchase a screen to simulate real games, separately! He will so appreciate being able to get some extra practice, relieve stress, and perfect his game! We love GoSports products and highly recommend them to you!

We’ve got a great gift idea for you. Treat your favorite guy with the gift of endless fires, great conversation, and quality time. How? By gifting them a gorgeous stainless steel Yukon 2.0 from Solo Stove. This extra large fire pit will be the centerpiece of many gatherings with friends and family. It’s honestly beautiful to look at as it is, but even more so when a roaring fire is lit within. An added perk to having the Yukon 2.0 is that it is smokeless. Believe it or not, even though that sounded hard to believe to me when I first heard, it’s true. Other than stoking the fire or starting it, you can sit comfortably around the fire without smoke following you wherever you go or burning your eyes. You don’t even smell like you’ve been around a campfire. A great feature I love–it has a removable base plate and ash pan to make it very easy to clean up and stay clean. You will find yourself coming up with excuses to go sit outside and enjoy the outdoors, no matter the time of year. In fact, how great does it sound to gather around the fire and watch the stars, enjoying some peace and tranquility rather than sitting in front of a screen? Sounds heavenly to me, and I know from experience, it most definitely is! This makes a great gift that will last a lifetime, with a warranty to back it up!

For those that love to explore the outdoors, we love Cotopaxi for great adventure wear. Warm and uber comfortable, their clothes are a favorite! The Fuego Hooded Down Jacket for men is their quintessential insulation layer. Made with responsibly sourced 800-fill down and a DWR-finished ripstop nylon shell, this lightweight insulated jacket is one that is great year round from summer camping to winter wandering. An added bonus is the water resistance that keeps you dry no matter what the weather conditions are. We love the colors they come in, too! When not in use, this non-bulky jacket can be stuffed inside a low profile sack so that you are sure to always have it when you need it. But, Cotopaxi has so much more than just outer wear that we adore. Check out their great On the Horizon Organic Crew Sweatshirt. So comfortable and a must-have for your favorite guy!

Let me introduce you to one of my new favorite brands–Atoms. These shoes come in two models–unisex–and both will knock your socks off. Model 000 (the original) and Model 001 (the redesign). Simple and sleek to look at, but way more to behold than meets the eye. I love the streamlined look of these sneakers for everyday wear. Open the box (which is the coolest shoe box, ever (it’s magnetic!)) and you’ll know immediately what I am talking about. Try them on and you won’t want to take them off. I love the non-slip grips and the antibacterial copper lining that keeps the shoes smelling fresh, no matter how often you wear them. They are 100% vegan and recyclable and machine washable, too. A perfect gift!

Has your favorite guy always envied the look of the ever-so-popular Members Only jackets from when he was a kid? Then pick him up his very own Classic Iconic Racer Jacket–he will love it! Choose from a variety of colors to achieve just the look he desires.  Stranger Things fanatics will also recognize this jacket as one like Steve Harrington wears in the series. The fabric and quality is fantastic and will be enjoyed for a long time to come.

After a day at work or hanging with the family, relaxing and putting your feet up is a must. We can’t get enough of LâMO slippers for both men and women. There are so many options to choose from. We love the Julian clog for a nice neutral slip on shoe. Love that same style but want a different pattern? Then try the Julian II, which offers a great seasonal charcoal plaid. You can wear them as slippers or wear them to run all your errands, which we highly recommend. Once you slip them on your feet at the end of the day, the faux fur lining will feel so luxurious and warm, your feet will thank you! They are like therapy for your feet! Be sure to check out their other styles, as well, like the Michael. This shoe is perfect for warmer weather (great for traveling to warmer destinations over the holidays) with it’s breathable upper paired with the cushy support of the outsole. You won’t be disappointed in these great shoes!

Great footwear is definitely something we love and we can’t rave enough about how awesome shoes from Vessi are. These stylish shoes are 100% waterproof–perfect to have this time of year, for sure! Ideal for everyday, these shoes are ultra comfortable, breathable and very lightweight, leaving your feet feeling fantastic, even after you’ve been on them all day. We love the many styles for both men and women, but some of our favorites are the Everyday Classic in Midnight Black and the Cityscape Sneaker. We know you will love them, too!

For your favorite guy, we love OrbitKey accessories for all aspects of life. For his office (home or at work), we love OrbitKey’s sleek Desk Mat to keep everything in it’s place and organized. For any guy who has keys (pretty much everyone, is what we are saying) you need to get him their Key Organizer. You can choose a variety of colors or themes (Star Wars fans will be thrilled) that will easily fit in his pocket and keep all his keys from taking up too much space or stabbing him when reaching into his pocket, they stay lined up and low-profile.

Still at a loss for what to get him? Stop worrying about it. Let ManCrates take care of everything! One visit to their site and you will be inundated with great gifts he will love. Grab some specialty beef jerky, give a cool project kit, like their Chef Knife Making Kit, or for the budding chef, grab a personalized pizza grilling crate. You’ll find everything you need to get to work on backyard pizza making, plus a personalized pizza peel. Who wouldn’t love that? Even better, each of these gifts comes in a very manly crate and crowbar tool to pry it open. That’s an experience in and of itself he will love!
