Promising review: “Wow, I honestly approached this with a very reluctant mindset. There’s no way they can capture county fairs, corn fields, denim overalls and sweet fresh air. WELL, was I wrong.

A stainless-steel Cuisinart sauce pot and basting brush set so they can coat their favorite cut of meat evenly. The basting brush is integrated into the lid so it won’t fall in the sauce.


Promising review: “I can’t give it enough stars! The brush has never melted or become misshapen. I heat the container directly on my stove on low for just a minute to melt the oil. Once a month or so, it goes into the dishwasher and comes out looking like new. I love that the edge doesn’t drip and the lid keeps out dust and animal hair.” —Amazon reviewer

Get it from Amazon for $11.34 (originally $19.99).

It illustrates the destructive tendencies and coping mechanisms that develop when the elemental needs are ignored. The author weaves a compelling narrative about why men do what they do and ways to address the basic drives we all (men) have that can either make us constructive, loving, adventurous and satisfied or destructive, frustrated, closed, and unsatisfied.” —Evan Rhodes

Get it from Bookshop for $14.99 or from Amazon for $9.89.

Promising review: “This is a good couples thing to do whether you are just starting to date or have been married for five-plus years.

A Baja Beef Jerky sampler pack to make your romance a whole lot tastier. This gluten-free and all-natural pack includes spicy and fruity flavors.


Promising review: “Wow — sooo delicious! I got the variety pack and am so glad I did. It allowed me to try flavors I might not have otherwise, and they were all amazing! The meat is so tender and fresh, not at all that leather-like stuff in the grocery store. The flavors compliment the meat as well. On the packaging, I really appreciate the sweet/spicy scale. Great addition! This is a great snack for my family, and I feel good about giving my kids as well. A+!” —Sunny San Diego Gal

Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (or Subscribe & Save for $21.59/one month, available in six flavors).


A Radiate portable campfire infused with all-natural oil to keep them warm wherever they wander (for at least three to five hours). It’s easy to light, has no smoky smell, and they can use the lid to snuff the flame.


Promising review: “Simple to light and the fire is up to max size quicker than a traditional wood campfire. For the size, this thing puts out some heat. Dead winter in the Pacific Northwest and I can sit outside comfortably for ~30mins a few feet away from a single Radiate. Virtually no smoke and what smoke there is won’t make your cloths stink. And wind changes just give you a boost of heat without stinging eyes. The easiest and most convenient part is putting the fire out! Just know there will be lots of smoke that will billow out once the flame is extinguished.” —Keana Z.

Get it from Amazon for $31.99+ (available in two sizes and two colors).


A mini cork globe for the guy who never stays in one place. It’s small enough to fit in the tiniest of apartments and it’ll go with any home décor.


Promising review: “The cork globe is beautiful and sturdy. It comes with limited push pins with very large heads. I bought additional push pins with smaller heads to mark countries that were close in proximity. I would highly recommend this for a traveler!” —Amylyn Blake

Get it from Amazon for $39.49+ (available in three sizes).


A button-down because they could always use a new shirt. With its chest pocket, side pleats, and rounded hem, this 100% cotton shirt is a great pick for any occasion that might require a collar.


Machine washable.

Promising review: “At $18, this might be the best quality and value shirt around. The fit is a slightly average, maybe even athletic cut — but by no means fitted. The sleeves are well proportioned for my skinnier, taller build. Very impressed that there are no strangely sized area or imperfections on the shirt. I purchased three different shirts, and all seemed to fit uniformly well. We’ll see how they hold up to washes, but they don’t appear to be wrinkle resistant — always going to need to iron these shirts. Really impressed at this fantastic price point!” —Mr. Donutbadgerme

Get it from Amazon for $18.00+ (available in a variety of colors and in sizes XS–XXL).


A pair of Nisolo Diego Low Top sneakers that’ll keep them comfortable and stylish with a Vibram sole and leather upper. These bad boys also come with two types of laces because they’ve got to match the outfit.

Get them from Nisolo for $150 (available in sizes 8-13 and in five colors).

Get them from Target for $149.99 (available in sizes S-XXL).


A Someone Somewhere backpack to take with them on their next adventure. It’s got 17 secret compartments that hold up to nine gallons of necessities (not that that’s how you would measure what you need to carry).

Someone Somewhere

Get it from Someone Somewhere for $115 (originally $135).


A Hanes cozy fleece bathrobe that’ll keep them cozy on the coldest of mornings. This soft-touch robe comes with adjustable belt loops and two pockets.


Promising review: “My swimming friends (all age 65+) were freezing as they walked home last year in their robes while I was toasty warm in mine. So, this year I told them when this fab robe became available. Now we’ll probably need to put names in them, just as we did years ago when we went to summer camp. This robe is warm, it dries quickly, fits really well, and after over 300 wearings from pool to front door, it still looks new.” —Candace01

Get it from Walmart for $27 (available in two colors).


Two pairs of high-quality combed cotton socks that look like a hamburger and will make them think they came straight from a food truck.


Promising review: “These socks are literally a bun above the rest! When I opened the package, I found both the box and the socks in pristine condition! Perfectly made, packaged, and assembled! The design was so seamless, they even wrapped the burger socks in burger paper. I know for sure my brother is going to LOVE these socks! This company is run by a small business (of friends, I believe) their customer service is a cut above the rest to match their products! I will definitely be ordered from them again.” —AM

Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in sizes 9.5–13).

Promising review: “I bought these to go in a gift basket for a friend who recently purchased a house in Birmingham. They have a nice texture to them and, although somewhat thin, they are good quality. I think the thinness won’t be an issue seeing as they’re just coasters. My friend really loved them, and I think they were the highlight of the gift basket in his eyes.” —Jessie C.

Get it from Amazon for $6.59 (available in a variety of sizes).


A Royal Craft cutting board made from all-natural, bacteria-resistant bamboo that won’t endure excessive wear and tear from cutlery. And this way, they can have their veggies and chop them too.


Promising review: “I got the cutting board set and I love them. They’re beautiful, strong, and I’ve lost track of how many times the groove has saved my counter from juice. After being frisbee-d across the kitchen by accident, I fully expected my favorite board to be cracked down the middle, but there was no damage at all.” —Isla Schanuel

Get it from Amazon for $13.97+ (available in five sizes).


Some fur-trimmed Tipi suede moccasins to offer barefoot-style comfort and still keep their feet warm. The best part is you’ll be supporting an indigenous-owned company.

A Spider-Man AirPod case for the guy who wishes he was an Avenger. It’ll protect against bumps and scratches to keep their earbuds safe and give them a little flair too.


Promising review: “I bought the Spider-Man cover and it’s exactly what I wanted. It protects my AirPods case from scratches and it makes popping open the top much easier with one hand. It also feels incredibly soft but not flimsy. Highly recommended.” —Redmond Jackson

Get it from Clay in Motion on Made in Oregon for $19.95.


A bag of Coach Soak: Muscle Recovery for a healing bath. The natural magnesium, essential oils and dead sea salt will sooth joints and muscles and help him get back on his feet.


Promising review: “With sore muscles from an early workout and busy 12-hour shift as an ER nurse, my feet were screaming. It was like therapy at first inhalation. When I was soaking it felt like everything went away…aches and pains gone and calm relaxation ensued. Worked even after I got out and didn’t feel an ache or pain the next day either.” —Muse

Get it from Amazon for $24.95 (or Subscribe & Save for $22.46/one month, available in four scents).


A copy of The Essential Bar Book for Home Mixologists that’ll cover everything they need to become a master mixologist with 70 classic and creative recipes, bartender hacks and fun facts.


Promising review: “This is a book I wish I had a few years ago! Demystifies the equipment and liquor needed for a ‘basic home bar.’ I previously got a copy of The Bartender’s Bible and overspent on equipment, glassware, and liquor. This book would have saved me money! The first two chapters are “what you need to have and why” and it also goes through some “hacks” you can use to get by without spending a lot of money. The balance of the book is deep in recipes of popular cocktails. Tells exactly what bar tools you need as well as glassware, so definitely “cocktails for dummies” level here! A super helpful list!!” —Hathi

Get it from Bookshop for $14.71 or from Amazon for $10.39.


An oversized canvas duffel bag for the gym, the next vacation or the next guy’s weekend (whenever that might be). The durable canvas has top quality leather trim, and it’s got enough room for clothes and traveling necessities.


Promising review: “The grey canvas is soft, not scratchy, yet it’s strong and durable. The leather handles are thick and smooth (though I’m watching the stitching on them closely), the zippers and metal accents are quality and the bottom of the bag has little metal feet, so wet surface worries are a thing of the past. The shoulder strap is both adjustable AND removable. I filled the bag with men’s boots, three sweaters, two jeans, shirts, socks underwear and a dopp kit and had room to spare! Filled to the brim or packed light, it’s never heavy, awkward or hard to manage. I truly recommend this bag!” —G.H.

Get it from Amazon for $51.99 (available in five colors).


An international candy subscription box that’ll give them tasty treats from around the world. Pick a box with 6, 12 or 24 sweet and salty snacks inside.

A simple, classic-design, great-for-any-occasion or everyday wear BUREI analog watch with an adjustable mesh band (gotta keep those wrists comfy).


Promising review: “As a watch enthusiast, I didn’t know what to expect. I am definitely pleasantly surprised and very happy I took the chance on this watch! It is well made; the face and hour markers are crisp and clear, and the hands align very well. Proportions are correct and well thought out; it’s simply a polished product. The movement is made by Miyota, the Citizen movement company, which is Japanese and is very well regarded. Burei’s “bang for the buck” factor is really off the chart.” —S. Hall

Get it from Amazon for $25.99 (available in 22 colors).

Get it from Uncommon Goods for $40.


A pair of Levi’s big and tall jeans to give them comfort and style in one. They’re crafted from premium engineered flex denim and are straight from knee to ankle.

A microwavable bacon grill so they can fix four to six strips of bacon easily. It lets the fat drip off and the vented cover prevents grease splatter.


Promising review: “Easy, fast and delicious bacon every time! First of all FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS! I lay the bacon strips flat, usually five. If I trim off end fat they fit just right. Cook one minute per strip, don’t have to turn them over, they come out perfectly. Even without spraying the pan with Pam, the bacon doesn’t stick. I remove the hot grease right away from the tray into my grease container then leave the pan to cool, then I wash by hand, in two minutes or less it cleans up like brand-new!” —Rose Lessa
