Choosing a gift for him this year has never been easier. Ok, it’s tough. But we’ve selected some of the best gift ideas for all the men in your life!
Stumped on when to gift any of the men in your life right now? You’re not alone. If the guy you know has everything it just might be time for a total upgrade.
One of the best things about gifting for someone else is that they’ll typically never buy any of this stuff for themselves, so it’s a great way to sneak in what you really want him wearing or trying out to help ‘better’ himself.
It’s fair to say that these times we’re in have been like nothing we’ve ever really experienced before. While everyone is tucked away in their home, finding the perfect present can be more than a challenge.
As things begin to shift, experts continue to predict that the way we live and the way we work really may be changing for good. So we’ve broken down our guide into the following themes so that whatever you get him, he’ll actually use!
- Everything he needs to work from home in style.
- All the home projects (and tools he’ll need) to keep busy.
- Having fun with the family – or at least getting outside. So many activities!
- Staying comfortable, but still looking on-trend – at least from the waist up on those Zoom calls.
From working from home, to learning from home, and basically trying out any do-it-yourself home project he can get his hands on, this year everything is different. Whether he loves his tech gifts, something comfy to wear while he’s conducting all his meetings on Zoom, trying to perfect his very own at-home brew (or super spicy hot sauce), trying to learn some new skills online from celebrities, and just about anything and everything in between there’s something he’ll totally use this year.
From the classic presents that would be perfect for your husband, to fun ideas that will make your boyfriend happy (and totally owe you), and innovative gift-set options that are total ‘son’ or just plain old ‘friend’ pleasers, we’ve selected some of the best gifts for him in the 2022 season. Have at it!
