We’re just a few weeks out from Christmas, and in the crunch for wrapping up the holiday shopping lists! If you’re feeling stuck on gift ideas, I’ve put together a week of ideas to help you get inspired. Men can be really hard to shop for – they typically buy what they need when they need it. You can definitely still surprise him with something he didn’t know he needed – here are a few of my picks for guys!

Harry’s: A great shave can really make a difference in the way your skin feels, even if skincare isn’t something guys think about too often. Harry’s not only offers high-quality razors and shave creams, but also inexpensive refills (so your gift can keep on giving and replace the disposable razors he’s probably using now). They also offer beautifully packaged gifts you can order at a variety of price points, starting at $15. I tried their shave cream recently and my skin was so soft with no knicks or bumps, and the razor gave the closest shave I’ve ever had! (Even though these are marketed for men, I think I’ve found my new favorite razor and cream.)

Loot Crate: Lootcrate is a subscription service geared toward “geeks and gamers.” You can gift a new monthly subscription, or if there’s a particular interest your guy has, they also have past crates available for purchase, as well as a “vault” where you can purchase specific items from crates.

MeUndies: Undies were always a weird traditional gift for my childhood Christmasses – I guess my mom liked watching me squirm as I opened them in front of her and my dad. Cute underwear are a super fun purchase, but something I don’t think most guys think too much about or prioritize. MeUndies has a variety of styles and really fun prints, and even have a monthly subscription service if your dude REALLY needs to replace his underwear drawer.

Keysmart: Everyone I know walks around with keys jingling off their belt loop or a ring that makes their pockets bulge. Keysmart organizes your keys into a Swiss Army knife-style device that easily collapses and can be tucked away, then spun out when it’s time to use. They’re on sale now on Cool Material with the promo code EXTRA20!

Rabbit Chilling Stones: Nothing is worse than watered down drinks at the bar, so you shouldn’t have to deal with them at home either. Chilling stones are great for whiskey, bourbon, or even mixed drinks to keep drinks at their optimum level of cool without melting ice, and should be a part of every barfly’s kitchen.

What are your gift ideas for the guys in your life?

I was provided a complimentary product from Harry’s to review, but all opinions are my own.
