Gifts For Him That You Can Buy On Amazon

Monday, January 28, 2019

Blake and I celebrate our anniversary at the end of February, and we love to make a big deal out of it! Usually when January 1st rolls around I start thinking about what gift to get him. Some years I know exactly what to buy and other times it's a little harder. My husband happens to be incredibly picky. I've definitely had some misses over the last 9 years. In fact, I think men in general are hard to buy for! 

On the other hand, I've also bought some things for him that he loves and has now had for years. I thought I would compile a little list of some really great gifts for guys in case the man in your life is also hard to shop for. 

Gift Ideas for Guys (

Blake is a huge fan of this razor. It's very nice, and well made with a decent weight to it. Major bonus points with me for being an excellent way to save money too. Replacement blades are so inexpensive- you can get 100 blades for less than $10. 

Blake loved this watch box so much that we ended up buying it for 2 other people as gifts! This is a great way to organize and display your watches. 

This is something that you don't even know you want until you have it! It's very easy to install on the back of your tv and you can change the color to suit your decor. The idea is that the contrasting color will make your tv image more vibrant. We have it on the tv in our living room, but it would be even better on a game room tv. You can see it on our tv in this post!

This ended up being a great buy, and something we've ended up buying for someone else too! This weekender is the perfect duffel bag for a 2-3 nights. It's really masculine and well made. I bought the khaki color for Blake but we've also purchased the gray. 
Patio Cooler Cart
This cooler is such a staple on our back porch! It's great for parties, and looks really good next to the grill!

This is on the pricier side of this list, but I wanted to share it because this is Blake's favorite watch. I got it for him on our 5th anniversary. We both got each other watches that year! This really is a beautiful watch, and I bet you'd get bonus points if you presented it in the watch box above! 

This is hands down the best mirror to have in your shower for shaving! It's pretty ingenious, but you fill the mirror up with water in your shower so it does not fog at all. I think I bought this for Blake over 6 years ago, and it's still going strong! 

And for fun I thought I'd include a few things I intend to buy for my husband! So in full disclosure I have not bought this so I can't attest to it's quality yet! Blake is a gin guy, so I thought this would be a unique and tailored gift for him. 
Smart watches have come such a long way in a short amount of time! This looks like a classic watch, yet it's got some really cool smart features. Blake likes to research things very thoroughly, especially technology-so this is something I'm going to have to straight up ask him if he'd be into. And I don't think I would buy the latest model. My goal would be to find one generation back on Ebay and hopefully save some money.  
And while you are gifting, make sure to do yourself a favor and get this gift wrap organizer! I bought this last year on the recommendation of Erica, and it's sooo great! 

So this year, I asked Blake what he wanted and he told me a video card for his computer...ultra romantic right?! Well I will get him that because he wants it, but I am also excited because I just noticed my Ebates check will be arriving on the 15th - just in time to buy him something extra! I think I am going to go with the Fossil smartwatch, but only after I find out what he thinks of them.  

Here is my old married lady advice: have your man set up an Amazon wishlist! Both Blake and I set up wish lists and we add things to it throughout the year. It's the perfect way to know what we are both hoping to get, and you can still maintain a little surprise. 

While we usually do tangible gifts, I also LOVE giving and receiving experience gifts. In fact, I really feel that unless you know for sure someone is going to like something, you shouldn't get them a physical item. 

Leave a comment below if you have a hard to shop for husband (or boyfriend or dad!)! Does it feel like sometimes you have the perfect idea and other times nothing comes to mind? What is the best gift you ever got for them that they loved? Any misses?
