40 of the very best gifts for men in 2023


1. Chanel Bleu De Chanel Parfum

Don't be surprised if this cologne is already on their birthday list. Rated as one of the best men's colognes by our Beauty Editor this year, we're not alone in loving this scent as it was also on the wishlist of a number of men we spoke to as well. 

With key notes of cedar, sandalwood, and lemon zest, Bleu De Chanel is the perfect cologne for those who enjoy woodsy scents and a hint of citrus. It's a light, yet long-lasting fragrance they can wear year-round. 


2. Nike Air Force 1 '07 

You can never go wrong with a pair of the best white trainers that'll go well with almost any outfit. I recently went shopping with my boyfriend who bought his second pair of Nike Air Force 1's after wanting a new pair for many months. These are a staple that belong in everyone's closet. These trendy sneakers are unisex, so you can snag yourself a pair at the same time. 


3. TheraGun Mini Handheld Electric Massage Gun

The TheraGun Mini has three speeds to help you massage out any cramps, soreness, and knots. If your giftee is always in the gym, this portable massager is the perfect gym accessory they can throw in their bag and keep with them while on the go. Even if they're not a gym rat, it makes for a great self-care gift that will keep on giving long after the last piece of cake has been eaten up. 


4. Shea Moisture Beard Kit

If he's been growing his beard, a beard kit is a thoughtful and useful gift they'll appreciate and enjoy using during their beard growth journey. This Shea Moisture beard kit comes with beard oil and a beard balm made with maracuja oil for hydration and shea butter to moisturize the hair. This kit is my cousin's number one recommended gift, and for someone whose facial hair is what they would call "beard goals", you better believe this kit is the best


5. Apple AirTag

As a daughter and a sister, I've seen both my dad and brother misplace many important things. An Apple AirTag is another useful gift they wouldn't think to buy themselves. The AirTag is 100% Bluetooth, so they can easily slip one into their checked-in luggage, wallet, or onto their keys and track it straight from the Find My app on their iPhone. Our Digital Editor bought one of these as a gift for her husband and the present was so well received they bought a second one.  


6. Nespresso Vertuo Plus Coffee and Espresso Machine

If they love all things espresso, I highly recommend adding the Nespresso Vertuo Plus to your cart. As a coffee lover with a Vertuo Plus, I use my machine every morning and haven't been back to Starbucks since I opened this Nespresso machine on Christmas morning. 

They'll love discovering their new favorite specialty at-home latte and trying delicious Nespresso pods. To make this gift even more special, you can add a handheld milk frother or a sleeve of Nespresso pods.


7. Hella Cocktail Co. 5-Pack Bitters Bar Set

These five cocktail bitters make a sweet present for the 21 and older giftee who enjoys making a delicious cocktail. They can add these bitters to their whiskey cocktail for some extra spice and flavor. Made right in New York, this variety pack features ginger, orange, aromatic, citrus, and chili. A twist on the usual 21st birthday gifts for men or stocking stuffers at Christmas time. 


8. Lululemon Pace Breaker Linerless Shorts 5"

With spring in full effect and summer on the horizon, now is a great time to shop for warm-weather clothing. Lululemon's updated pace breaker linerless shorts are perfect for casual wear or for running. 

These shorts are made to be breathable with its lightweight material, streamlined fit, and sweat-wicking fabric. With a higher price point than other activewear brands, Lululemon makes a great gift as it may not be a store that he shops in often himself. 


9. AstroAl Portable Air Compressor

It's not the flashiest gift, but it's a present that'll definitely come in clutch. This portable air compressor is the perfect car essential he can keep handy in his trunk. Whether he catches a flat from hitting a pothole or wants to check his tire pressure, this electric air pump will have his car or bicycle up and moving within minutes. And according to over 66,000 Amazon reviews, this air compressor has saved people a lot of time and money from gas station air pumps. 


10. Aquis Double-sided Exfoliating & Cleansing Back Scrubber

A loofah is probably not the first thing that comes to mind when you're gift shopping, but it's a useful beauty gift he'll use every day. 

He'll be happy to toss his plastic loofah to the side for Aquis's reusable double-sided scrubber. With one side used to exfoliate and massage and the other to cleanse and lather the body, this 2-in-1 shower tool will clean and keep his skin butter smooth. This scrubber is also machine washable, so no more monthly visits to the store to buy a new loofah. 


11. BluePrint Coffee El Potrero Guatemala Single Origin

Put down the Folgers and replace it with a bag of single-origin coffee farmed in Guatemala.

BluePrint Coffee is a local coffee bar in St. Louis, Missouri that sources coffee from several Central and South American countries. BluePrint's website mentions that they also partner with farms, importers, and exporters in Guatemala and Colombia. This single-origin coffee has notes of apple taffy, sugar cookie, nougat, molasses, and chocolate cream. Your giftee will get a taste of culture after every sip. 


12. Aerangis No.1 The Beginning Scented Candle

Scented candles are an easy yet nice gift for anyone on your list. But, if you want a more luxurious candle, Aerangis No. 1 The Beginning is an excellent option. Made with lead-free wicks and plant-based wax, it's also perfect for the eco-conscious giftee.

I tested this 8oz candle for over two months, and it has since become a personal favorite. With notes of aerangis orchids, white flowers, jasmine and sandalwood, this candle gives you all the spring feels. 


13. Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Generation)

If the man in your life doesn't have a paid of AirPods yet, ask yourself, why not? Wired headphones are a pain to untangle and can get in the way while doing your daily tasks. Wireless headphones are more expensive but they make a great gift as a result and will be gratefully received by your recipient. With the headphone's noise-canceling feature, he'll enjoy tuning out the rest of the world while listening to his favorite albums or the latest best podcasts.


14. Ninja Foodi NeverStick PossiblePan

A nonstick skillet that works as a steamer, strainer, fry pan, saute pan, roasting pan, and baking dish? Sounds like every home chef's dream gift. The Ninja PossiblePan eliminates the need to use multiple dishes and cookware sets when making one meal. I've had this pan for over a year, and it's never lost its nonstick coating, and it makes cooking so much more enjoyable. 

The pan comes with a steamer/strainer basket and a spatula that can rest on the included lid.


15. Ember Travel Mug 2 

Nothing is worse than a hot cup of coffee or tea that goes cold on your way to the office or just minutes after pouring yourself a cup. The Ember Travel Mug is the best coffee travel mug we've tested and definitely the coolest. With a touch-screen display to control your coffee's desired temperature, a 360-degree leakproof lid, and an included coaster to rest and charge your Ember travel mug on. It's a coffee lover gift that'll surely leave him impressed. 


16. UGG Men's Tasman Slippers 

Upgrade his loungewear with a pair of UGG Tasman Slippers. These super plush UGG slip-ons have a suede exterior and a sheepskin interior. I surprised my partner with a pair and ever since he wears them almost daily around the house and while running errands. 


17. Method Men Body Wash

Body care is a cheap gift they'll use every day in the shower, especially when it's a cult favorite like Method Men Body Wash. The whole range has a fresh, woodsy scent that lasts all day and leaves your bathroom smelling amazing. This wash works for all skin types - even men with sensitive skin. The body washes consist of plant-based cleansers and are made without any parabens or phthalates.


18. Brooklinen Super-Plush Robe

Looking for the best father-in-law gift or a gift for dad? Consider buying them a comfy robe that feels like you're wearing one the best bath towels from a hotel. This Brooklinen robe is made of the same 100% Turkish cotton fabric as the brand's best-selling Super-Plush bath towels. 

Whether he wears it while reading the morning news or during an afternoon nap, there are no rules when it comes to wearing a robe. 


19. Bartesian Premium Cocktail and Margarita Machine

Known as the Keurig for cocktails, the Bartesian is the perfect entertaining house gift for the guy who enjoys making at-home cocktails. The machine comes with five glass bottles for you to fill with your favorite whiskey, tequila, vodka, rum, and gin. Once locked in, you can insert a cocktail capsule  (sold separately), and with just a press of a button, you can have a cosmopolitan, margarita, an old-fashioned and more.

And with the small microphone and a USB plug-in, he can easily record while on the go.


22. MLB Ballpark Pint Glasses Set of 2

If his week involves tuning into MLB games, why not gift him some paraphernalia of his favorite baseball team? These pint glasses feature a map of the team's stadium. And while he sips his cold beer, he'll have a view of the team's logo at the bottom of the cup. It's a thoughtful gift that'll leave him smiling from ear to ear.

25. Stanley Quencher H2.0 FlowState Tumbler 40oz

A $45 insulated tumbler might sound pricey, but I, along with millions of TikTok users, will tell you it's worth every penny. It's the perfect gift if their goal is to drink more water, and it keeps your drink iced for two days and cold for nine hours. It has a slim base that fits in any sized cup holder, and its convenient, easy-to-grip handle is what makes it super unique. 

After drinking from it around my family, my dad and my brother now want one. If you need more persuading, check out our Stanley Quencher Tumbler review.


26. The Sill Money Tree Plant

If he has a green thumb, he will likely love to receive a houseplant. Plants make lovely gifts. They bring life and greenery to a space. We rated The Sill as one of the best  flower delivery services this year for its wide selection of plants. 

The Sill's money tree plant grows easily and is said to bring good fortune into the home. Two things that any giftee would love to receive.


27. Ray-Ban New Wayfarer Classic Sunglasses

Summer calls for a new pair of the best sunglasses, but not just any old pair. We're talking Ray-Bans. These Ray-Bans have a minimal and classic look, fitting every beach, casual, or dressed-up look and they won't go out of style. Like watches and cologne, sunglasses are another gift option that every guy will love and appreciate no matter how many pairs they have.


28. Perfect Fitness V2 Pushup Handles

Instead of working out on the hard floor, he'll have support from two slightly rotating handles that reduce joint pressure and prevents strain on the wrists.

37. Amazon e-Gift Card

An Amazon gift card may not be the most unique gift, but it's still a useful present to give so your recipient can use it to buy whatever their heart desires. It's also an excellent option if you don't know much about your giftee's favorite things. But, if you want to make it bit more personal, you can add a photo or a 30 second video.

What do you buy for the man that has everything?

When shopping for the men in my life, I often reflect on our past conversations and jot down items they might've briefly mentioned. For example, if your husband mentions how he's been wanting to go see a new movie at the theatre, you could buy tickets to go and see the latest blockbuster or find an independent cinema serving dinner and drinks along with the movie. Or if your son has talked about needing a new pair of sneakers, you can surprise him with a trendy pair of Nike Air Forces. 

Also, paying attention to their hobbies is a great way to get inspiration for a man that seemingly has everything. For example, if your father-in-law is always working out, you can buy him a new gym bag or a TheraGun Mini to massage any muscle tension, or upgrade your man's golf clubs if he's always teeing off with friends.
