“Men are hard to shop for.”

I hear this time and time again. But I disagree.

We are actually very easy to please – you just need the right gift ideas!

Still confused? Worried that Christmas is coming up and you haven't found the perfect gift yet?

The good news is – you can still grab an awesome last-minute gift without resorting to novelty socks or ties.

So take a deep breath, read this guide then grab him the perfect gift and pretend you had it all planned out well in advance.

1. Stylish Pair Of Chelsea Boots

Few boots really drive home sleek and casual perfection the way Chelsea Boots do.

The boots were first used as riding boots, the elastic on the sides making them easy to slip on and off. They make amazing casual boots that really lend a much-needed elegance to any man's outfit. The Thursday Boots Cavalier is a must-have in a fall closet.

2. Essential Skincare Kit for Men

What could be better than the gift of perfect skin? VITAMAN's men's skincare products are made with natural Australian ingredients – no toxins, aluminum or chemicals.

Their Essential Skincare Kit gives him the core VITAMAN face-care essentials he needs this winter:

  1. Natural Face Cleanser
  2. Natural Face Scrub
  3. Natural Face Moisturizer

He'll also get simple instructions on how to use this kit and VITAMAN's world-class support if he has any questions. Click here to grab this kit and get a free VITAMAN re-usable Face Mask and VITAMAN's no alcohol anti-bacterial hand wash thrown in for free!

3. An Elegant Leather Belt

A good belt can take your whole outfit from good to great.

Anson Belt & Buckle has taken the classic belt and improved it with their revolutionary exchangeable buckle system and micro-adjustable belt.

Instead of 5 holes, 1” apart like most traditional belts, Anson Belt offers 30+ options only a 1/4” apart, allowing you to always achieve the perfect fit.

4. Shaving Kit

Looking for a quality shaving kit that won't empty your pockets? This Harry's five-piece shaving set is all you need to fine-tune your grooming routine.

This set is all you need for a crisp, close shave.

5. An Affordable Luxury Watch

What man doesn't want a stylish, elegant timepiece? Monta Watches are great starter watches for those who want to go a little more high-end but still want to stay on a budget.

These watches are sleek and professional and come in several styles that cater to every whim and fancy. I'd definitely be happy to see this under the tree!

6. A Scent Trigger

Do you want to be more focused? More confident? Perform better?

Then you should definitely try out Mission Fragrances.

It’s not just about fragrances that smell good (and trust me, they do!) but leveraging the Science of Scent to get more out of life.

Learn how to boost mental clarity, sharpen concentration, and increase your confidence to become the man you know yourself to be!

7. The Perfect Signature Scent

Every man needs a signature scent. But the problem is – most men have no idea what theirs is. Here are a few of my favorites:

In the world of men's fragrances, Parfums de Marly is a relatively new kid on the block but they've already built up a reputation as an exquisite, niche fragrance house.

Known for their bold fragrances that leverage exotic fruits, florals, spices, and woods Parfums de Marly fragrances will surely make you smell and feel like royalty.

With over 30 colognes available, it won't be difficult finding that signature scent for you or that special someone.

8. Vlogging Camera Kit

Talent is one thing but everyone knows a good camera definitely helps.

The Canon Mirrorless camera is great for pros and amateurs alike.

Easy to use with a 15-45mm Lens, 4K Video, Built-in Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth Technology – this is definitely a good starter camera.

A favorite for vloggers too!

9. Leather Wallet

Every man needs an amazing leather wallet. And to tell you the truth… not a lot of companies are up to Carl Friedrik's standard.

Beautifully made Italian leather wallets crafted to perfection will bring a smile to any man who receives one as a gift this holiday season.

You can pick different sizes, colors and types of wallets – I'm sure you'll find the perfect one for your friend, brother, father (or any man for that matter) and I'm sure they'll thank you for it!

10. Performance Jeans

I'm a prepper – which means I like to be prepared in all possible situations I or my family can get into.

Skinned knee at the park? My first-aid kit is ready.

Leaking faucet at home? Got my wrenches right here.

Blackout during a storm? No sweat- I have my trusty flashlight: heavy-duty, incandescent, works with easy to find batteries, this Maglite flashlight is a staple in our house – it's water-resistant and renowned for its quality, durability and reliability

11. Mini LED Flashlight

Goes without saying – if you like to be prepared then you should have one of these in your car, travel luggage, Dopp kit and bag.

You'll never know when you'll need it and it's small enough for kids to use too!

12. Bike Accessories

I'm no professional cyclist but I do enjoy rides on my bike every now and then. It helps to have great bike gear and accessories that are not just of great quality but also unique.

If you're looking for bike gear that's fun, cool and one of a kind – Dispatch Bike is the way to go!

13. Men's Makeup

Getting ready for that date but suddenly see a pimple popping up smack dab in the middle of your forehead? No sweat – Stryx is here to save the day.

Stryx engineers products made for men to give them perfect looking skin without having perfect skin so you can say bye to spots, redness and dark circles instantly.

14. Height Adjustable Standing Desk

Working from home has its perks but it definitely has its disadvantages too.

I found myself often distracted and even falling asleep on my workspace.

The standing desk literally changed the way I work – not only do studies show it to be healthier, it is also shown to help you keep better focus and reduce back pain.

15. Backpack

Whether you're traveling, hitting the gym, or heading to work – EZRI has a stylish, practical backpack for you.

All EZRI's backpacks are made of incredible high-end unique materials, making them ultra-lightweight while allowing them to maintain their shape even when empty, and to stand on their own.

16. Cowboy Boots

There are a number of men who have never ridden a horse, yet own and look GREAT in a pair of Western boots.

Admittedly, it can be tricky to pull it off but with the Chisos Cowboy Boots, it has unmatched comfort with an elegant finish.

These cowboy boots are downright incredible and comfortable.

17. Tactical MultiTool

Gerber Gear Truss Multitool

This multi-tool has saved me countless times when going on trips, especially when I used to ride my bike all over the country.

Small enough to fit in the compartment or bag but has everything you need in a pinch.

LEATHERMAN Wingman Multitool

Another great multi-tool to keep in the car or in your toolbox. Has everything you need in an emergency plus it's compact enough to keep anywhere.

If I can't think of a gift to give a friend – I usually end up getting this and I know it will be well received.

18. French Press Coffee Maker

Everyone knows I love a good cup of coffee in the morning.

Add some coconut sugar, freshly whipped cream (because nothing else compares!) and I'm all set for a good day.

This double insulated press keeps the coffee hot for longer and makes sure none of the grounds get to your cup.

A staple in the Centeno household.

19. Glasses

Do you know someone who loses their glasses all the time? Or maybe breaks them by accidentally sitting on them? If you do, or if this is you – then Clic Readers would make the perfect gift.

What makes CliC Eyewear unique is their design. Instead of your normal temples, these glasses go around your head, disconnecting at the bridge.

With this magnet and headband combination – they’re always around you when they are not in use. No more losing, misplacing or breaking those glasses ever again!

20. Portable Flashlight

I know I've listed several other flashlights here but with a house of 4 kids who like to the outdoors – somehow I just need several of these.

I keep these in our camping gear as well as keep one in each of the rooms.

Just in case we get a blackout from the nasty storm, everyone's set. Pro-dad tip, these are waterproof.

Making them super handy for sticky little fingers.

21. Journal

I've been journaling for more than 20 years, back to my military days and it's definitely one of the things I have never regretted doing.

Not only does it allow me to look back and remember all the important (and sometimes crazy) things I've done but it helps me remember all the amazing people I've met.

I've used it to set goals, figure out timelines and overall just help me map out what I wanted to do with my life.

This is one of the best gift ideas for men who already keep a journal or for someone who's looking to start. Lochby journals are stylish and sturdy – something you'll need for every day.
