2020 Gift Guide: for the man in your life

The NUMBER ONE gift guide you guys requested was for the men in your life! What good wives/daughters/friends, you are. Here are my picks for your main dude (with some help from my hubby!

ALL of these gift guide posts are packed with items I either use and love, have purchased or have on the list for my own people (my husband even helped me create the men's list!). Enjoy!

1) A great flannel https://amzn.to/3k02Li0

What guy doesn't love a good flannel? At least I (and my husband) think it's a cozy cold-weather staple. These are a great price point and come in a ton of colors.

2) Whiskey glasses https://amzn.to/3eLXJo1

Whether your dude is a scotch made, a bourbon guy or a rye lover... a great whiskey glass is a must!

3) Whiskey to go in the glasses https://drizly.com/liquor/whiskey/bourbon/rebel-yell-10-year-single-barrel-bourbon/p58356

Of course, a delicious whiskey to go in the glasses is always a great gift. We're a big fan of Bourbon, over here- this one's a great one that might be nicer than he'd buy himself, but won't break the bank.

4) Hardcover Dune https://amzn.to/2JyETFx

Dune is a classic- and with the show coming out next year, what a great re-read (and a nice looking book to keep on his bedside table).

5) Portable Espresso Maker https://amzn.to/3enazJt

For the guy who's a coffee lover... what a cool gift (my husband wants one!).

6) Bulldog Skincare Kit https://amzn.to/34QgWli

My husband has loved using Bulldog skincare for a few years now, it's felt great on his sensitive skin, he loves the peppermint-y shaving gel and it's not overly expensive, either (I also prefer the peppermint scent as opposed to some of the overly-cologned men's products, out there!).

7) A classic-but-modern watch: https://amzn.to/38axtT4

We got my husband a nice everyday watch last year, and he loves how it dresses up his everyday wear, while also serving a purpose!

8) Noise-cancelling Wireless Earbuds https://amzn.to/3mPaukB

My husband owns and loves these, he said they were a must for the gift guide!

9) Leatherman Multitool https://amzn.to/3oW9HAq

For the sporty or handy guy in your life, this is my husband's favorite all-around multitool. He's owned multiple (when you drop something in the ocean, it's hard to get back!). He lost his this summer, so I think he might be sending me a signal ;)

10) Messenger Briefcase https://amzn.to/2I4j7sg

For the guy who needs something to carry his computer but wants something a little more casual, a messenger briefcase is a great solution. We love Fossil leather goods, they've never steered us wrong for the decent price point.
