Shopping for me is pretty easy to be honest. Snag me anything with Captain America on it and I’m smiling ear to ear. Or Star Wars. Or Lego. Or yes, even the Steelers or Yankees. But not every man in your life is as easy to shop for, I’m sure. That’s why I’m here to help with some unique suggestions for great gifts for guys.
I’m working with the fabulous folks over at BabbleBoxx to showcase all sorts of gifts for guys from gadgets to grooming, so whatever your man’s taste (whether he’s your husband, dad, brother, uncle, son, etc.), you’re bound to find something he’ll love this holiday season!
I was sent a big ol’ box o’ goodies, so let’s dive in, shall we?
Casio Edifice EQB600
I used to wear watches all the time! I still remember my very first one from school. It was light blue and had Snoopy on the face. His furry arms were the arms of the watch. I loved that thing and probably wore it until it just ran down. I’ve had calculator watches and then in college, went back to traditional watches but with comic book faces on them.
At some point, I just stopped wearing watches. Instead, I looked to my cell phone to see what time it is. Not very efficient is it? Lately I’ve been thinking about getting myself a nice watch and now I have one! The Casio Edifice EQB600 is pretty much light years ahead of my original Snoopy watch and that’s not just because we’re a few decades removed.
This bad boy doesn’t just look slick, it is slick! You wouldn’t know it by looking at it, but it leverages Bluetooth technology to connect to your smartphone! With the Casio Watch app installed on your smartphone, you can easily access and adjust your watch to display the correct time in your current location at more than 300 cities worldwide. You can also easily set and see the time in your home city, as well as the city you’re currently visiting. Do you know how insanely useful that is for someone who does a fair bit of traveling?
The other killer feature I am in love with thanks to the Bluetooth is that you can press one of the buttons on the side of the watch and it’ll make your smartphone play a certain tune. Yes, it has a built in “I totally lost my cell phone, can you help me find it please” feature! I know everyone on the planet can use one of those.
The Edifice EQB500 also sports a crazy awesome battery life of up to seven months, is water resistant up to 100 meters and even features a 3D Globe dial that rotates once per day in time with the Earth’s rotation. Whether just hanging with the guys or heading off to work, this stylish yet super-functional timepiece is seriously a great gift for guys. I know I’m in love with mine!
Wearable Wellness Tracker
Talk about stressful times! Is anything worse for your mental health than holiday shopping? The insane crowds. The traffic jams. The out-of-stock problems. Yeah, my blood pressure’s rising just thinking about it.
That’s why I definitely need to start using this Wearable Wellness Tracker from Spire. In short, it’s Mindfulness + Activity Tracker. This tiny little device clips right onto your clothes and magically will help you discover when you’re tense before you even realize it yourself.
Based on Stanford University’s Calming Technology Lab research (Try saying that three times fast!), Spire senses your breathing patterns and respiration rate, as well as the number of steps and calories you’ve accounted for.
The little guy will alert you in the moment (as your stress levels are about to rise) and in conjunction with its app, offers a variety of suggestions in the form of breathing exercises and meditations. It’s also seamlessly integrated with the Apple Health App (and works with you lucky folks who have an Apple watch too!), and an Android app is currently available too. With loads of charts, reports, tips and suggestions, Spire really is like having a personal stress coach with you at all times!
2(X)IST Men’s Activewear
January’s always the biggest month for gyms, because everyone’s making healthy resolutions. So get a jump on the exercise by picking up some of these great Men’s Activewear pieces from 2(X)IST. These mesh shorts and tank won’t just provide support, they feature that amazing moisture wicking fabric that I honestly can’t live without!
I have a few dozen wicking fabric shirts in my closet and wish that every piece of clothing I owned was made of the stuff! The 2(X)IST Men’s Activewear collection is a great choice for any time in a guy’s life from totally chilling on the couch to super energetic game-changing performance. Stylish and innovative in design, make sure your man looks as good as he feels in this activewear line.
Old Spice Sweat Defense and Hair Pomade
And finally, a great way to round out some gifts for guys is with some stocking stuffers! When it comes to Men’s Grooming, guys have it fairly easy. If they brush their teeth, comb their hair and remember to use deodorant, they’re probably ahead of the curve. Old Spice has been around for almost 80 years, helping guys defend against sweat and messy hair.
Old Spice’s Hair Pomade comes in three styles: Pomade, Putty and Paste. Providing a variety of hair holds from Moderate to Low Shine Finish, your guy won’t have to worry about Hat Hair much at all this winter.
As for Sweat Defense (sounds like a position in football, doesn’t it?), Old Spice’s Sweat Defense Anti-Perspirant doesn’t just deliver 66 percent sweat reduction, it also comes fully loaded with BCD technology that traps and locks away bad odor. That means less sweat and no stinky armpits. Seriously, that’s a present that keeps on giving!
Sweat Defense Anti-Perspirant comes in a variety of scents including: Pure Sport Plus, Stronger Swagger, Extra Fresh, and the new Lasting Legend. They truly are #Unforsweatable.
And there you have it, a box-load of great gifts for guys this holiday season. I hope these suggestions help you cross some names off your list as we inch closer to the holidays. Happy Shopping!
