From tech that’ll uplevel your lifestyle to classic socks and athleisure he’ll actually use everyday, here are our top picks for men’s holiday gifts in 2022…
13 Holiday Gift Ideas He’ll Actually Love
Yeti Roadie Cooler | Everyone from the beach bum to the long commuter will appreciate Yeti’s perfectly-sized cooler (nearly a perfect 20 inch cube). A retractable handle, wheels, and a few great color options make this a classic gift they won’t expect, but be so grateful to have on hand.
Sonos Adventure Set | For the one who can never be without their playlists, this speaker set from Sonos make the perfect gift. Use them indoor-outdoor for a pool party, get the kitchen tunes cranking, or create a fluid environment from bedroom to home office in the AM. Pick a color that’ll blend in to their home environment.
Uvex Skyper Blue Light Blocking Computer Glasses | With wrap around sunglasses blazing back into fashion quicker than any of us were ready for, these Uvex blue-light blockers are the gift to give this year. If you’re going to block blue light, why not really block it with these dorky, but amazing lenses that wrap all the way around. Orange lenses reduce eye fatigue and help you to sleep better at night (once you finally put away all the screens).
Outerknown Cashmere Beanie | Surfer Kelly Slater launched Outerknown to make the kinds of swim trunks and durable clothing he wanted to wear himself. Everything is responsibly-made and easy to wear for anyone who loves to spend time surfing, lounging or camping — the ultimate California brand. We picked this cashmere beanie because it’s an easy win and something he may not splurge on himself!
Igloo Rolling Cooler | Okay, yes, there are actually two coolers in our men’s gift guide, but we feel they both have a place in your life. This huge 70 quart cooler features giant wheels that’ll help you wheel this thing through the beach, camp ground or stadium asphalt like a dream. The handle holds an overly-fancy named “butler tray” that fits inside the lid when you’re through and there are all kinds of handy features like the small storage bin up front and several bottle openers in back.
The North Face Waterproof Boots | The North Face’s Back-To-Berkeley III Sport Boots are sustainable, waterproof, and pretty great looking. The knit ankle collar make these comfortable enough for running around the city or perfect for all your road trip plans.
Todd Snyder Ribbed Crew Socks | Socks like these belong in every dad’s wardrobe. They also make a great gift for any male significant other (so you can steal them back on long days at home).
Vuori Sherpa Jacket | Something new to throw on for coffee runs and the like. We love a bit of cozy sherpa and so will he. Vuori makes this pullover in a few classic colors that are bound to match his broad collection of sweat pants.
Vuori sunday Performance Jogger | Vuori’s joggers also made an appearance in our last men’s sustainable fashion guide. They’re men’s athleisure perfection with a comfortable fit and slim ankle that’ll let you operate with ease.
Theragun Mini | Also in our Wellness Gift Guide this year, percussive recovery tools make incredible gifts for those who lift or who simply engage in sports or outdoor activities of any kind. The Mini will run you just $150 (if you read this Cyber Monday!) and doesn’t come with as many attachments as it’s larger counterpart, but we think you’ll get a ton of use out of it regardless!
Kodak Pocket Projector | This projector is an unexpected gift that opens up a ton of possibilities. Project your favorite shows anywhere while you travel, host movie nights in the backyard, or throw it in your pocket to project a presentation in any meeting.
DL Eyewear’s Roll Up Case | Whether he’s particular about his high-end sunnies or simply travels often with his eyeglasses, sunglasses (and maybe even a good pair of blueblockers), this roll-up case makes a perfect gift. From beloved actor Dan Levy’s new eyewear brand, the case’s clever design lets you safely travel with up to four frames.
Beard King Beard Apron | One of our male team members told us that this odd-looking gift idea was a life-changer for him last year. Pop it on while shaving or beard-trimming to save thirty minutes of meticulously cleaning that bathroom vanity!
Lunya Men’s Travel Kit | Lunya makes some of the coolest loungewear around this men’s set is the ultimate gift if you have travel plans later this year. Soft organic Pima cotton essentials all come packed in this mesh bag, ready to go. Sadly, sold out at the of publish, watch for the restock or pick up a few of these basic on their own.
