Friday Faves: Holiday Gifts for a Few Good Men

FF 11.27.2015 Gift guide (Grooms, Groomsmen, fathers & brothers)


Gifts for a few good men in your life – and your wedding!

In the second edition of our holiday gift guide, I’ve put together a stellar list of gifts – with a twist – for the best men in your life and the best men in their lives. Instead of the usual suspects – polymer “ice cubes” and engraved beer glasses, or various other alcoholic beverage paraphernalia supposedly reserved for the male species (yeah, I disagree, too) – I’m including only super-unique items and sparing you the spam.

If you missed the first round of gifts for your best ladies, you can find it here. And don’t forget our gift to you, too!



1. Scratch Map – For the traveler, the thrill-seeker, the explorer and expeditioner. When he travels, he can pin the spot or even scratch it like a lottery ticket! ‘Cuz travel is one of those things that makes life richer, right?

2. Beer Cap Map – While straight-up alcoholic gifts are typically appreciated, this creative bottle cap map is no cop out gift. Make a yearlong game out of completing this ultimate cross-country beer “flight”!

Star Wars print

3. Anything remotely Star Wars related – Star Wars seems to be the common denominator that unites many men – self-professed nerd, the hipster, the jock. He will hold Star Wars in his heart forever – besides you, of course. This witty illustration of Darth Vader in a suit printed on a book page is for the classic gentleman who knows his geekdoms too. If so, you may have found yourself the perfect man 😉 Just sayin’.

4. Engraved Cutting Boards and Sushi Serving Boards – A man’s place is in the kitchen…if he happens to be an awesome cook or even just an awesome chopping helper. Whether he has a discerning eye or prefers a chuckle, these are great gift ideas.

5. A Meaningful Print – Over the years, it’s likely that your father has done all sorts of things that the unconditional love of a parent makes him do. Things you cannot even ever begin to thank him for. Solution? Give him a thoughtful, meaningful print that makes a solid attempt to convey it.

6. Sports Illustrated – Another pun-worthy, sports-centric illustration and print for the man cave. It’s clever and witty, and will show him you really get him, and love all his idiosyncrasies.

7. All-In-One iPad Case & Stand  – Obviously, he’s already tapped in to all the latest gadgetry and tech – so you can be responsible for the side fixins’!


8. Personalized Soundwaves – It doesn’t get anymore heartfelt or personal than a recording of one’s voice immortalized in artistic print form. Brilliant and eye-catching.


9. Wooden Organizer – Furniture is definitely pricey but consider it a holiday-housewarming-two-birthdays-in-advance gift.

10. (Geeky) Survival Gear – Fact: Guys who love the outdoors are hard-pressed to choose which is the greater love – the outdoors or the survival gear.  Why make him choose? Give your outdoor buff some survival gear with homemade coupon for a weekend in the woods. You’re welcome, guys 😉
