We have 3 precious holiday shopping days left and today, it’s all about our main men. After 15+ years together, gift shopping for my husband can feel like the biggest head scratcher. I’ve given him so many types of gifts over the years and he’s a confident, savvy shopper for his clothes, tech, and everything in between.
For me, the secret in finding the gifts Rob wants lies in the small moments. Moments where he lingers too long in front of a storefront, comments about something he sees, the sheer bliss after an awesome afternoon surf, his obsession with personal care and rad packaging, and the tireless dedication to his craft. The best gifts live in our better half’s passions. Add and enhance these treasured corners of their lives this holiday with a few of the cool picks from the Last Minute Gift Guide for Husbands.
If your main squeeze is a salty dog like mine, he’ll love Nixon’s Supertide Surf Watch. He can wear it while he paddles out at 6AM and use it to track the golden hour to shred. A few of my surf pals swear by this watch, aka surfer approved.
I’ve gotta give my man some credit for putting up with my mile high stacks of fashion filled coffee table books. And this breathtaking surf photography book is the perfect love letter to the sport.
Rob and I collect bracelets throughout our travel adventures and over time, this tradition has evolved into his only acceptable form of jewelry wearing. Mansai’s bracelets are the perfect mix of rugged and cool….and their combos are so amazing, I picked up a navy leather and rose gold anchor version for myself!
No matter how old he gets, he’ll always be the ultimate baseball fan. Ebbet’s Field Flannels is famous for their throwback vintage caps from every city and era. And the adjustable leather strap makes them a little more grown up.
Post surf, ride, ski, hike, or freezing dog walk, Patagonia’s Better Sweater Hoodie is the next level hoodie answer for every guy. The heavyweight knitted fleece is a sturdy barrier to the winter chill. And it’s Patagonia, my favorite outdoor brand ever.
Have you ever observed what men carry on their way to work? In most cases, it’s not a pretty sight. Men always vote function over fashion, but the good news is there are brands like Filson who strike the perfect balance of both.
Over time, Rob has upped his skincare and grooming game. He’s graduated from the drugstore brands and prefers products rooted in natural ingredients and clean scents. Aesop’s cult following items keep our skin happy, healthy, and smelling like a dream.
If your guy is on the hunt for a new pair of shades, Oakley Frogskins are the only answer. The famous wayfare style from the 80’s, the Frogskin offers an epic flash lens and important UV barrier. And the classic wayfare shape looks cool on any face.
There are water bottles….and there is Hydro Flask. Hydro Flask is the most hardcore of all water bottles…double insulated to the point that there is a testimonial of a family visiting the Grand Canyon who left the Hydro Flask in the car. When they came back, the bottle still had ice in it and was freezing cold – #TRUTH. Trust me when I tell you this is the water bottle your husband will go bananas over.
What sweet gifts are on your husband’s wish list this season? Is he dreaming of the outdoors, new threads, tech gems, or a great new read?
