Just try and say the phrase “taco socks” without smiling. Impossible, right? So we know the recipient of these socks will smile whenever they see these sitting in their sock drawer. These cute socks are a funny, inexpensive gift idea for any occasion. When he’s got his feet up on a footstool, you’ll be able to read the message printed on the underside of the socks. This is a great gift for any guy who loves tacos. A similar sock design asking for cold beer is also available.
Price: $8.99-$15.99 depending on options selected
105. Xbox One S Vertical Stand With Game Storage & Dualshock Charger
Here’s a little “just because” gift for your favorite gamer. If his gaming corner is a mess of chargers and leaning towers of game discs, this organization system will help keep things under control. The stand helps to keep the console cool, while the built-in storage for gamers and a charger takes everything to the next level. With storage for up to 18 games, this is an inexpensive accessory that will help him corral all of his gaming stuff into a small, tidy area.
106. Men’s 10k White Gold Square Face Diamond Initial Ring
Looking for a personalized gift for his birthday, your anniversary, or a major holiday? This initial ring is great for guys who have a strong sense of identity. You can pick an initial to match his first name, his last name, or any letter that might have personal significance to him. The ring is made from 10k gold. While that’s not the purest gold out there, we actually like it a lot for men’s jewelry, since it’s harder to scratch or damage than 14k or 24k gold jewelry. Yellow gold and rose gold versions of this ring are also available.
107. Goodthreads Men’s Slim-Fit Long-Sleeve Chambray Shirt
Here’s a shirt that’s great for practically any occasion. He can wear it to work, dress it up with a blazer for fancier events, or wear it with nice jeans for a casual date night. It’s a soft, comfortable shirt that feels like a well-worn “favorite shirt” from day one. This is a slim fit cut, so if he prefers a looser fit, you may want to order a size up, particularly if he’s broad-chested. This slim fit shirt is about two inches smaller in the chest and waist than a traditional cut men’s shirt. If you’re shopping for a guy who hates shopping, he’ll appreciate not having to brave the mall to personally update his wardrobe.
108. Creative Recreation Men’s Terni Sneaker
Shopping for a guy who needs new shoes? These sneakers are comfy enough for the gym, but detailed enough to work with his favorite streetwear, too. A breathable design, strong grip on the soles, and hidden lacing system combine to make a sneaker that’s as cool as it is comfy. They’re also available in black. Want more resources for finding great men’s shoes? You should also visit our guides to the best dress sneakers, the best white shoes for men, and the best driving shoes.
109. LOCTOTE Flak Sack
This anti-theft backpack is a great gift for students or travelers. Despite looking quite simple, this bag is packed with anti-theft features, including an internal RFID pocket, patent-pending locking strap and slash-resistant fabric. We also like this bag because it’s water-resistant. Made with pride in Ohio, this is a great gift idea for any Buckeye guy who needs a new bag. A lightweight “sport” version of this bag is also available, and it’s significantly cheaper than this version while still maintaining many of the same great features.
Price: $129.99 (13 percent off MSRP)
110. Hardmill Leather Cast Iron Skillet Pan Handle Cover
This handmade leather skillet handle cover is an unusual gift idea, but one that would be very appreciated by any serious home cook. The leather handle lets you bring the skillet to the table without burning your hand. The cover is made from oil-tanned leather and Kevlar heat-resistant thread. Designed by the Seattle-based company Hardmill, this handmade item is designed to get better with use over time. The company advises buyers that “The leather will harden slightly over time as it comes in contact with heat, but this only enhances the form and function of the cover, letting it conform to the shape of your pan handles.” This would be a nice-but-inexpensive birthday gift, Yankee Swap gift, or stocking stuffer. If this gift idea is a little too niche for the guy you’re shopping for, you could consider some of Hardmill’s other handmade products, such as this waxed canvas lunch bag or this set of leather drink coasters.
111. Ski & Snowboard Storage Rack
This storage rack is great for organizing longboards, snowboards, skis, or other sporting accessories. We particularly like these kinds of storage racks for apartment living where storage space can be hard to come by. Mounting hardware is included with purchase, which means this rack can be unboxed and set up in his space in a matter of minutes. Three levels of storage mean you can store a snowboard, skateboard, and skis with poles all on the same rack. If you think something with a vertical orientation would be better in his space, you could also check out this vertical ski rack.
112. SIMPZIA 17-Piece Leather Tool Kit
Leather handcrafts are a fun hobby, and they can also turn into a lucrative side hustle. Using the tools in this kit, a guy could make fun leather goods like a wallet, leather coasters, or even try his hand at making custom leather sneakers. This 17-piece kit includes the following items: two pressure clothes, four awls, 3 types of thread, an adjustable groover, needle kit, thimble, beeswax, scissors, and protective finger cots. If the man you’re shopping for is new to the leather crafting hobby, consider bundling the leather tools set with some bulk scrap leather, or a copy of The Art of Hand Sewing Leather by Al Stohlman.
113. Picnic Time Portable Folding ‘Sports Chair’
Shopping for the tailgating grillmaster in your life? This comfy folding chair is great for tending the BBQ or hanging around a campfire with some friends.

Made from stainless steel, this knife also comes with some free survival guide resources with purchase, which is the icing on the cake.

115. Conair Gel & Lather Heating System
Shaving can be a soothing way to start the day, and more men are starting to view their morning shave as a ritual, not a chore. To help your favorite man enjoy his daily shave, we recommend giving him this appliance for heating up his shave lather. A warm shave is so much nicer than a cold one, especially with winter just around the corner. It takes seconds to warm up lather, and the appliance is very easy to operate. This is a great gift for dads, boyfriends, husbands, brothers, or anyone who appreciates a close shave.

117. Plox Official Star Wars Levitating Death Star Bluetooth Speaker
This is the ultimate gift for a Star Wars fan. This levitating speaker is gonna get him a ton of compliments, and you get all the credit. The Death Star levitates when powered on, and rotates over its magnetic base. The speaker is an officially licensed collectible, and offers five hours of playback. There aren’t many gifts out there that are capable of levitating, so we recommend pouncing on this super cool gift if there is a Sith fan in your life.
118. Game of Thrones House Targaryen Stein
This awesome beer stein is a must-have for any Game of Thrones fan. This officially licensed tankard is embossed with House Targaryen’s dragon sigil and banner with their house words “Fire and Blood”. It holds 22 ounces of beer, mead, wine, or any other awesome beverage he enjoys. If this stein isn’t quite right for them, consider this stainless steel Game of Thrones beer growler instead.

Vi tracks heart rate, elevation, steps, cadence, motion, and location. You can get real-time coaching, pep talks, and heart rate information.

This next-gen fitness system is ideal for runners, gym rats, or any guy who takes pride in living an active lifestyle.
120. Atomic Blonde on Blu-Ray
Does he love action movies and Charlize Theron? Then he needs to add this Blu-ray to his collection. Set in Cold War Berlin, this sexy action thriller also stars James McAvoy, and was directed by the same guys who directed John Wick. Theron plays MI6’s most lethal assassin, and the action sequences are amazing. Has he already purchased a copy of this flick? Consider picking up a copy of the awesome action film Baby Driver instead.
Price: $22.99(34 percent off MSRP)
121. Moroccan Tea Glasses (Set of 6)
These Moroccan tea glasses are great for tea, coffee, or cocktails. Some people also use them as notice candle holders. These hand-blown glasses are created by Moroccan artisans using techniques passed down through multiple generations. These are a great gift for any guy who loves to entertain, or any man who traveled to Morocco and can’t wait to go back someday. Multiple color options are available, but we like these gold-etched, clear glasses quite a bit more than some of the other options out there.
122. AmazonBasics Grip Kit for Nintendo Switch Joy-Con Controllers
Most Nintendo Switch owners agree: the console is great, but the controller is a little uncomfortable to hold, especially during extended gaming sessions. These third party controller grips make gaming a lot more fun, and we love that they come in fun colors to match Nintendo Switch controllers. Consider tossing in a fun Japanese Nintendo Switch tee to make your gift more impressive.
123. Men Doing Manly Things Personalized Wooden Sign
This personalized sign is a great custom gift idea for his birthday, or any major holiday. He can hang it in his man cave, his garage, or over his home bar. The sign comes with a twisted rope hanger, and the whole sign measures 5.9 inches by 11.8 inches. Custom gifts always feel more personal, though it does mean they take a little bit of extra time to create. Consider pairing this gift with this funny “man cave rules” poster.
