10 Really Cool Gifts for Guys they Actually Want

Here are the top gift ideas for men aka the hardest person to buy for. All under $50!

Unique Gifts for Boyfriend

Most men have the reputation of being too hard to shop for. Whether they struggle with articulating exactly what they want or seem to have it, buying for the male gender often leaves shoppers stumped and bound to follow the beaten path of ties, colognes (I do buy my favorite for my husband) and toolboxes. 

Finding unique gifts for your boyfriend or husband doesn’t have to be a drag. So to help you in your search we’ve compiled a list of cool gifts for guys that will wow the man in your life.

Before you shop online make sure you are taking advantage of FREE tools like Ebates and Honey to get you cashback on your purchases and the best prices. I LOVE these tools and they save me money as I spend it.

I shop online a lot and use Ebates to get cashback on things I’m going to purchase anyway.  See my cashback statement below, a nice little bonus for stuff I was buying anyway.

Better than nothing, right? 

You can simply sign up here and get $10 when you spend at least $25 online.

And have you ever heard of Honey? You’ll no longer need to search for coupon codes and sales again! This is GOLD if you shop on Amazon as it finds the best-priced items for you and will watch the price of a product if you don’t want to buy it right away.

Great way to save money and find deals without doing the work yourself. Make sure you sign up here before you make any purchases online.

Top 10 Really Cool Gifts for Guys

1. Men’s Nightstand Organizer and Charging Station

I am absolutely in love with this first idea. Men do not need jewelry boxes like us girls BUT they do need something to keep their things organized. What a great gift, ESPECIALLY if you see that your guy could use a place to put his things. Who wouldn’t love this? You can find it here on Amazon.

2. Vinyl Record Player

It’s amazing how things come back in style but some styles of music never left. Not only can you play vinyl records on this to experience the retro-style music and atmosphere, but you can also play all your favorite digital music at any time via Wireless. This is so worth the price. Wow your man with this great gift idea. You can find it on Amazon here.

This blanket is the perfect mix of class, comfort, and warmth for those days of watching tv and lounging around the house. Who couldn’t use a nice warm go-to blanket? And who will NEVER forget who bought them the blanket? That’s right, guys need to stay warm too. Read the reviews, it’s funny, people in the comments are begging you to buy two or three because it’s just that nice. It’s under $25!

Giving to a gamer? This handheld retro-style arcade game comes with 200 built-in games including Pacman, Galaga, and DigDug.

It’s something about having a nice wallet that does something to you, I don’t know if it’s a confidence booster or what, but every man should have a nice wallet. My husband still had the one his ex-girlfriend gave him O_O so it was time to get him a new one. This one is under $25!

9. Everyday Carry Pocket Knife
