If you missed my Stocking Stuffers For Her guide you might not know that stockings are a BFD in my family! In fact, they are more anticipated than the actual gifts. When I was a kid, ripping into the stockings was the highlight of our Christmas morning celebration. Well that and my mom’s breakfast pizza, of course. So if you look at this and wonder – how the heck is that a “stocking stuffer”, that’s why. I felt like I needed to give a disclaimer, LOL! In any case, our stockings usually hold our “big” gifts and nearly everything inside is wrapped. It’s a fun tradition that I look forward to each year and it has been even more fun to get Dane in on the family fun. So, today I’m sharing the best stocking stuffers for him. These are all products that Dane has and loves and/or has gifted and wanted to keep for himself. Let’s get going…
Stocking Stuffers For Him
Stink Proof Socks – All my fellow fitness enthusiasts hear me out on this one – I’m sick and tired of smelly gym clothes! When I saw these stink proof socks from MP Magic Socks…I needed to get a closer look. Could this solve the problem of stinky sweaty workout socks in my house? I was skeptical at best, but after 3 wears (which usually results on nasty footwear) – COLOR ME IMPRESSED! Shipping does take a bit, so order early with a side of patience.
Bourbon Caramels – I am of the impression that every stocking is in need of something sweet and these treats from Sugarfina have my bourbon loving husband’s name written all over them!
Bluetooth Earbuds – Dane bought these for himself one day after it took him 15 minutes to untangle his earphones at the gym. He had had enough, I suppose and ordered this pair off Amazon (we are big fans of BOSE in this house) in a fit of frustration from the treadmill. After seeing how they work (I was skeptical considering price and reviews), I’m considering ordering myself some! Not only are you never messing with tangles, but your hands are completely free of cords getting in the way. They’re AMAZING for lifting…or so I’ve been told 😉
Professional Organizer – When Dane was making his transition from active duty to civilian life, I gifted him with a few things I knew he would need to stay organized and this large organizer from This Is Ground was what I went with. It’s perfect for the guy on-the-go and is super high quality leather. Now, he has both a big and small one and says, “I would recommend them over and over again!”
Tweezers – Anyone else have a man that loves grooming? I sure do and we go through Tweezers in this house like no other. I was honestly sick and tired of Dane snapping up my good Tweezers and so I gifted him a pair of Tweezermans last year. Best move ever! St. Nick will surely be stuffing another pair in his sock this year 😉
Happy Socks Dress Socks – Is it weird I have an opinion on dress socks? Because I do. Sarah and her husband gifted Dane a pair of Happy Socks a few years back and they have remained at the top of his “best dress socks ever” list ever since. They come in a bunch of crazy colors and last between washes.
Cold Shower Cooling Towels – I’ve blogged about our love for these cooling towels before, so gifting them to every guy on our list is a no-brainer. They’re perfect for anyone in the military, travelers, campers, outdoorsman and more! 10/10 recommend!
Shinola Watch – The traditional gift for a third wedding anniversary is leather and the modern gift is crystal, so naturally – I gifted Dane a nice watch for our third anniversary. This is the one I got him. I picked out a beautiful Shinola (I love everything the brand stands for – read more here) and he wears it so frequently that I would buy him another one in a heartbeat. You can’t beat the quality and they customization in stores is so neat! In addition to being able to mix and match watch faces and bands, you can get a monogram or initials hand stamped into the leather. Bonus – they offer 15% off for military!
Go Pro Hero 5 – I’ll be honest – this is a great gift for anyone on your list. We had an original Go Pro that bit the dust back in 2012 and we hesitated on replacing it for a long time. I HAVE NO IDEA WHY! This new Go Pro Hero 5 is blowing our minds with how good the camera is and how crisp/clear videos and photos turn out from underwater, while hiking and beyond. It’s on major sale here for Black Friday (and through Thanksgiving weekend!) so if you’re even considering it – act fast!
Hugs Driving Loafers – We are both fans of loafers in this house! Hugs & Co makes the softest loafers (and driving loafers) and they feel like pure butter on your feet. I have them in both pink + pistachio and the comfort level is unreal. They are definitely an investment, but SO worth it for the person on your list who is 1. picky about shoes and 2. has been on the hunt for the perfect driving loafer that offers comfort, support AND style.
Lululemon Joggers – Dane will be the first person to tell you that he has a muscular build so all these male fashion trends that are built for “skinny” or “slim” fit just won’t work for him. He’s right. Each and every time I get him to try something on that I *think* will work – he is quite literally bursting at the seams. All of that to say that he was convinced Lululemon was the “skinny man shop” and didn’t even attempt their apparel for a long time. His world was rocked when he tried on their line of ABC pants. He now owns three pairs and the joggers are his fave! P.S. – they also offer free in-store alterations, so take advantage for the perfect fit!
The Tie Bar Ties – The Tie Bar is my favorite company to snag some trendy neckwear for every guy in my life. Not only do they have the best designs on ties, bow ties, pocket squares and more — they’re affordable! What’s not to love?
Big Ass Duke Cannon Soap – Dane’s skin is pretty sensitive, so it’s hard for him to find soaps that don’t further irritate his skin. He was pretty skeptical to try this trendy soap brand, but was drawn in by the military ties and how much Duke Cannon gives back each year. In a total change of events, the soap didn’t irritate his skin! HE LOVES THIS STUFF! We are actually pretty big fans of all Duke Cannon products, and this bourbon varietal is calling Dane’s name! And if you DO gift this item, this soap pouch keeps it from deteriorating in the shower and helps it to last longer! #winwin
Smathers and Branson Belt – We gifted an embroidered belt from Smathers and Branson to my brother-in-law for his graduation and I was so impressed with the quality that I made a mental note to order there again when Dane’s birthday and Christmas rolled around. The offer belts and tons of other customized goods (they do collegiate embroidery, too!) and it’s definitely the type of gift you save for a special occasion.
