Men now more than ever are taking style into their own hands. Menswear has soared to a growth of 278% from 2013 to 2016, while the global fitness and health club industry generates more than 80 billion U.S. dollars in revenue per year.
So it’s safe to assume that some of the cool gift ideas for men would be fashion or fitness driven.
When I wanted to convert my husband towards a habit I liked, such as making him more fashionable or active, I would get him something that would encourage him to adopt the behaviour. So this list of gifts will also work for those that aren’t so stylish or crazy into fitness, but ultimately you are looking to overturning that.
Cool Gift Ideas For Men
Depending on what you’d like him to adopt, you’ll surely find some cool gift ideas for men below that would suit your need and his taste.
If your guy works in an office, there is a high chance that he wears dress shirts. If he’s sporting more of his golf shirts in the office, this may be your chance to convert him to the more professional counterpart.
That being said, he probably doesn’t wear performance dress shirts, or even knows about them. What’s the difference???
Performance dress shirts are more comfortable, and perform better than your typical cotton dress shirts. These wrinkle free dress shirts will wick moisture away from the body and are easy to care for. Just throw them in the washer, dry them, and they are ready to be worn over and over again. No ironing necessary.
I bet he’d love you for that.
Growing up, getting underwear for Christmas may have been a drag. But today’s modern men, boxer briefs (aka. sport trunks) are something that can always come in handy and will impress. Besides, they can never have too many.
Sport trunks made from natural materials that are antimicrobial are a great gift idea that will ensure that the man in your life will get the ultimate support and comfort he needs in an undergarment, especially while working out.
Every stylish man needs a durable and trendy pair of sunglasses. Shades can be used all year round as both a fashion accessory and a protectant for your eyes.
For the frugal shopper, sunglasses can be made from just about anything and come in a variety of prices. Try these eco-friendly shade options that are ideal for any situation.
Sneakers are perfect not just for working out, they’ve become a huge style piece given the rise of athleisure.
Most brands have these cool gift ideas for men in a variety of colours and textures that can really diversify his outfits. Brands like Stan Smith and New Balance have been breaking out and creating sneakers made of all different materials.
Add a touch of creativity to your guy’s outfits by getting him a pair.
Wireless headphones that look good can make a jog, an airplane ride, or train commute a stylish and hassle free (as no wires to deal with) statement.
They range in price and quality but can easily be an affordable gift that will make your man happy and feel good about since they are practical.
Good style isn’t reserved to what can be seen with the naked eye. A guy’s scent can sometimes last longer than the memory of his outfit. This is why cologne is always a great gift idea.
In the winter, try musky scents. In spring and summer, choose a more delicate scent that has notes of citrus or coriander. A robust manly scent will be a gift that everyone in your man’s life will appreciate.
For travel, a duffel bag can be a key element in a fashion forward ensemble. Weekender bags aren’t just for women. In fact, I find nothing is sexier than a man with a great pair of shoes and a duffel bag.
They have such style and functionality that can add flare to boring business trips, a neutral gym outfit, or a basic casual stroll.
Pair a stylish duffel with the perfect dress shirt, sunglasses, sneakers, and cologne and you will be a jetsetter in no time.
Every man needs a good watch to complete his look. Whether he is an athlete who is on the go or a business man who is on the clock, modern watches come in a variety of custom bands, materials, and affordable prices that will make any outfit stand out.
I’ve recommended Kaizen Naturals whey isolate numerous time in my posts, here, here, here, and yes, here too.
It’s all natural, tastes great and gives you the right amount of protein you need. Now what guy would not like protein as a gift? It saves him a trip to Costco to buy it, or search the Internet for cheaper deals.
Do him a favour and get him a container.
The Gist of it
