The hardest people to shop for on my gift list are always the guys. It’s not usually my husband – I usually have to narrow down my ideas for him – but those dang brothers of mine are nothing short of frustrating for me year after year. And, not to beat this into the ground, both of them have birthdays in the months surrounding Christmas, so it’s a double-whammy! Anyway, I did a little legwork and found some of the best gifts for men this year. . .

FITBIT VERSA SMART WATCH :: Whether he’s workout-obsessed or needs encouragement to get a move on, a FitBit smartwatch is a great gift. Encourage them to join weekly challenges where you can all compete to see who steps the most each week! A little friendly competition is always fun!
PATAGONIA PUFFY JACKET :: Many of my best gift ideas for men come from my husband. This Patagonia puffy jacket (he has it in black) has become his go to in cool weather – for travel and at home! It’s not too puffy and it provides just the right amount of warmth!
KLIPSCH SPEAKERS :: Whether for movies or music, these Klipsch speakers are amazing quality and won’t kill your decor! The black and copper style is a perfect combination of sleek and stylish (and he’ll love the amazing sound).
HOT SAUCE ASSORTMENT :: A fun assortment of hot sauces is ALWAYS a good idea! With a mini bottle in different flavors, they can spice up every meal and see if they can handle the heat!
