2023 Holiday Gifts for Him

Travel tumbler

We love gifting this travel-friendly tumbler, which has a handy magnetic slider lid, fits in cup holders, and can go right in the dishwasher. It comes in a ton of colors so you can pick his favorite, whether that’s camp green, charcoal, or power pink.

Classic sunnies

These Wayfarers have been a classic since 1952. And for good reason—they look great on lots of different faces, come in 10 shades, and can be customized with prescription lenses.

BBQ apron

If the guy on your list loves to grill, hook him up with this heavy-duty yet stylish apron. It’s made of waxed cotton so it’s easy to clean up even if he’s cooking something messy, plus it’s size-adjustable and has a pocket for his phone and thermometer.  

Woodsy candle

This candle is perfectly seasonal thanks to evergreen, citrus, and cinnamon aromas—but it’s also quite nice to have in the house year-round, with its handsome green glass casing and 72-hour burn time.

Cologne sampler kit

If your guy loves to smell good, he’ll dig this sampler. It comes with 14 popular scents to test out, including Armani, Prada, Versace, and more. He’ll also get a travel atomizer and a gift card so he can purchase his favorite of the scents.

Italian cookbook

If he loves to cook (or just loves to eat!), help him share the love with this wonderful Italian cookbook from beloved actor Stanley Tucci. It’s full of family recipes, wine pairings, and photography that looks good enough to eat.

Remote control race car

Yes, you’re still reading the 2023 Holiday Gifts for Him guide! And yes, you can totally buy a toy for a grown-up. It’s fun to find something that brings out his inner child, whether it’s this race car, a teeny-tiny Etch-a-sketch, or another fun toy. 

A great nonfiction book 

If he loves to read and history is his jam, consider this book about salt, aka “the only rock we eat.” It’s an intriguing read that covers how the mineral has shaped our civilization in so many ways.  Bonus points: pair it with the next gift on the list.

Fancy finishing salts

Spice up his reading and eating with this fun salt collection, complete with herb, chili, and garlic-ginger varieties. Each instantly levels up any meal, adding flavor and depth to meat, vegetables, grains, and more.

Cashmere sweater

It’s hard to go wrong with a classic crewneck made of cashmere. This one consistently gets great reviews because it’s well-priced, supersoft yet lightweight, and comes in 8 colors.

Plush bathrobe

If his favorite bathrobe is getting a little threadbare—or he’s yet to experience the joy of the bathrobe experience—this makes a terrific gift. It’s available in four colors and is perfect for staying warm and cozy post-shower. 

Mini fridge

There’s just something fun about a personal mini-fridge that you get to fill to your heart’s delight. Whether he loads it up with his favorite soft drinks, brewskis, snacks or skincare, tell him it’s all his to use as he wants!

Reusable K-cups

If he’s been trying to go a little greener (or save some more green! 🤑), these little reusable filters are a great idea. Pair it with his coffee of choice and you’ve got a great gift that’ll perk up his mornings.  

Pickleball paddle

If he’s not into pickleball yet, chances are he will be soon. But these well-made paddles are not your grandad’s set. Choose from a variety of hip designs, including  cowboy, skater, and dogs.

”Ugly sweater” tee

And finally… we’re rounding out our 2023 Holiday Gifts for Him list with this idea for the best cat dad you know. This kitschy tee is soft and stretchy, runs from a Small to a 5XXL and is sure to be a hit at ugly sweater parties.
