Wondering what to get your husband for Christmas or his next birthday? We have you covered with this husband gift guide! Here are 50+ husband gift ideas in realistic price ranges for husbands of all interests!
Men definitely have a stereotype of being difficult to shop for. And so many husband gift guide options assume all men play golf and drink, which can leave what to get your husband for Christmas quite the conundrum.
Your husband can be the toughest holiday gifting person to figure out! Several buy themselves what they want throughout the year, and many only want big-ticket items that may not be in the budget.
So many men’s gift guides also rely heavily on stereotypes of men only loving golf and drinking. This leaves a lot of husband gift planners a little stumped when theirs isn’t a fan of one or either.
We’re here to help friends! We’re all about meaningful and unusual gift ideas that they’ll actually use!
Here are 50 Excellent Gifts for Men
All sorted by category to help you find the perfect gift for the men in your life.
Experience Husband Gift Ideas
Year of Dates
We have gifted each other a version of this pre-planned, pre-paid date night gift for 10 years now! It never gets old! There’s something so magical about date night together, and making it fun and easy is always a great gift idea!
A Weekend Getaway
This is one gift every couple can use at almost any given time! There are so many travel deals right now, and Groupon has made it so easy to find great local staycation/nearby getaway rentals for a change of scenery. Of all the 2020 husband gift guide items, this may be the most needed!
Date Night Subscription Box
These have been a lifesaver this year with so many dates at home! They used to be cheesy, but they have come a long way and are worth every penny! You can easily gift a full year of date nights delivered to your door or just try a single box. Our current favorite is the Happily box, and I have half off the Happily date box promo code for you! Use this link and sure to use the Happily promo code: FRIDAYWEREINLOVE to get 50% off your next box!
An Epic Date Night
If a year of dates isn’t in the cards, I highly recommend giving at least one epic date night. Here’s a list of 12 date night gift ideas that make it easy. We love to find something off-the-wall on Groupon.

We have a whole post reviewing this awesome concept! But one book will give you 50 adventures to do together, which all make great dates! It’s a really affordable gift for how much you get from it, but we have a bonus 10% off any order with the Adventure Challenge Promo Code: INLOVE10
Trip to Disneyland or Disneyworld for Two
This is our one big splurge item in the gift guide, but it’s something we both think would be the ultimate gift! We sure love grabbing discount Disneyland tickets for our family, but I have a dream of going on an epic date weekend to Disneyland or Disneyworld for two! When travel is safe again, we will make an epic couples trip happen! I love that you can lock in your deal with flexible travel with this service. Pay for half a trip, and pay the other half two weeks before you go. It’s easy to plan and easy to make it happen when parks are open again!
And as a bonus, I have to add you can get $10 additional off a vacation package with promo code FRIDAYLOVE
Gift Card to His Favorite Restaurant
I’ll never forget the look on my husband’s face when he opened that high-end steakhouse gift card the first year we were married. I’ve made an effort to gift him a really great meal at his favorite places as a husband Christmas gift every year ever since!
Romantic Husband Gift Ideas
Either book a massage for them or book a couple’s massage.
I love that Mentionables offers model-free shopping and really pretty pieces! Their goal to make everyone feel beautiful and sexy no matter what their size or body type is such a great message! And this is one gift that can tune up the romance all year long.
Naughty or Nice Collection of Sexy Games for Couples:
A little truth or dare or would you rather to talk about intimacy can be super fun and beneficial gift for both of you! This is a tasteful game that helps you spice things up and facilitates communication.
I love giving a cologne that’s more of a romantic gift for me than for him. He’ll gladly oblige wearing my favorite scent for a little more romance.
I could recommend some favorites, but because we’re all different and attracted to different scents I really recommend buying one in person and making sure it’s a smell you are attracted to!
Fun Husband Gift Ideas
We love our outdoor movie theater setup and love that the projector makes for fun movie nights anywhere! You can take this on trips, for a fort date night, or anywhere in your house to shake up movie date nights.
Gift Cards to Favorite Lunch Spots Near Work
I’ve done this one for 10 years now, and it never gets old! Even if he’s working from home, hook him up with a nearby lunch spot and let him get lunch on you.
TSA Precheck/Global Select
This almost belongs on a practical list, but if you plan to travel at all in the next five years you’re going to want to get TSA Prechecked and/or Global Select approved. It’s about $100 to do it, but it enables you to bypass long TSA lines at airports. We hop right on flights, and get to skip huge lines with international travel. If he travels at all this is a must! If you want to plan a fun trip, this is a great gift to get you set up for an even smoother dream vacation!
Taste of Chocolates Chocolate Taste Test
We found these at Trader Joe’s years ago and have purchased one every year ever since. It’s a $6 box of fine chocolates that guides you through guessing the flavors. It’s so fun and makes a great date or a fun family activity.
Practical Husband Gifts
Insulated Tumbler with Straw
I gave this to my husband last year, and guess what he uses all day every day! I’m a firm believer in reducing waste and leveling up your water intake. We love having one tumbler at home, and one at the office.
Insulated Water Bottle
For the same reason we love the tumbler, we’re fans of insulated water bottles. A Hydroflask is worth its price tag when you see how much you use it! The water bottles are great for on-the-go, and we almost always have one in the car.
Top Rated Customizable Pillow
We are giving each other this customizable pillow with amazing ratings. Everyone I know who owns one swears by it! Plus the gift of better sleep is a pretty amazing gift!
If you haven’t experienced Airpods you may not know how useful and loved these items are! They make hands-free phone use and podcast/music listening so easy! Seriously the best gift anyone gave me this year, and one I think every husband who has an iPhone will love too!
Prepaid Car Wash Card
A clean car is always a good idea. So many local car wash companies offer prepaid cards for multiple washes at a great deal. It’s a great way to support local businesses!
Personal Grooming Husband Gifts
Even if you see a barber regularly, it’s a great idea to have an excellent tool like a hair trimmer to keep sideburns and his neck clean-shaven. Lots of men use their hair trimmer as a nose, eyebrow, or ear trimmers. It’s a grooming game-changer for many men!
Moisturizer with Sunscreen
It’s too bad our society hasn’t placed an emphasis on men taking care of their skin. I love that my husband appreciates a good facial lotion and knows he needs sunscreen daily. I found this top-rated men’s skincare line on Amazon about eight years ago, and he’s loved it and used it daily ever since!
Clothing and Accessory Husband Gift Guide
Zip Front Sweater
I gave Jacob a classic zip-front sweater several years ago. I was immediately shocked by how much use it got! Jacob literally wore it out, and we live in Phoenix! A quick zip up classic lightweight sweater is perfect for date night looks, to bring to the office, or just to up their fashion game with a comfortable easy option.
Threaded Pear Sock Club
My brother is obsessed with new socks, and my sister-in-law found a gift that keeps on giving. The sock of the month club gives him fun new socks to keep things fresh and stylish each month.
Blue Light Glasses
Is he on his computer/phone often? Blue light glasses can help with better sleep and reduce headaches.
I hate to stereotype, but all the men in my life couldn’t care less if their pajamas look great or are even worn out. A new pair of flannel pajama bottoms or even a new pair of basketball shorts are a great useful gift!
Apple Watch Band
It seems most men are forgoing the traditional watch and if they have a watch, it’s an Apple Watch. It’s a great time to update his watchband with a nice option he’ll use and love.
Culinary Husband Gift Guide
This has been the gift that keeps on giving! We use this appliance daily! While we all adore it, it’s my husbands favorite kitchen item. Having leftover fries taste fresh has been a game changer.
It’s a spatula, measuring cup, and mixing spoon all in one. If your husband appreciates cool gadgets in any form, this is a cooking game changer.
Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat: Mastering the Elements of Good Cooking
Learn the elements of cooking in this highly rated best-selling book men and women are raving about!
My husband really likes learning techniques and feeling proficient in the kitchen. We’ve taken a couple’s cooking class for a date several times, and it’s always a great way to learn!
Quality Chef’s Knife
My husband had a chef roommate during his college years, and he gifted us one of these for a wedding present. We have LOVED it and used it almost daily! If he’s even remotely into cooking, I promise it’s a gift you’ll both use and love! We now own two quality chef’s knives and love that we can cook together with this amazing tool!
I know this one can fall into the stereotype gift options, but if your husband owns a grill, a grill toolset is something that needs replacing every few years. It’s a great option to get an updated set in a kit that keep them organized and him happily grilling!
Tools and Hobby Gifts for Husband
Jacob asked for this electric drill for a birthday gift when we were newlyweds. I’m ashamed to admit I did not understand at the time. Now that we’re into two great home makeovers together, I 100% get it! We use ours so much and if he doesn’t own an excellent electric drill I would add this to a gift list!
Everyone who gets a power washer swears it’s a game-changer! Keep everything clean, and do it with ease with this amazing tool!
Car Detail Kit
It doesn’t matter what type of car or truck he drives, keeping it clean always feels amazing! Make it super easy with an awesome kit with everything he’ll need to keep it looking its best.
If you plan to paint anything this year, you won’t believe how excellent this tool is! We’ve refinished so much of our home ourselves because of this amazing tool! It’s one of those tools that feels hard to justify when you’re buying everything else. Giving it as a husband gift for the holidays or a special occasion means you’ll thank yourselves later when you’re reading for a project.
If you want to get serious about home projects, this saw is the tool to have on hand! Updating baseboard and elevating your home with trim or board and batten options is so easy with one of these!
We could add more, and likely will keep updating this post as more amazing husband gift ideas come to us! If you’ve bought a total winner gift feel free to drop it in the comments to help others out!
