Gifts For Him: Ideas From A Guy

November 22, 2023


Erin Schrader

Disclosure: Thank you to Nordstrom and Collective Voice for sponsoring today’s post. All products were chosen, purchased, and loved by the guy in these photos 😉

‘Tis the season friends. I know that we’re in prime gift-shopping time, however, I can’t stop buying gifts for myself [this happens every year, and every year on December 20th I think “Wait, how did I forget to shop for everybody else?!” and then the mad dash ensues. Example: just today I bought these. Did I need them? Absolutely not, but if you think I’m going to pass up that price, well then, you’re crazy.

To ensure this doesn’t happen with every person on my list this year, I gave Shawn a challenge – a challenge to find gifts he’d actually want from Nordstrom that I could buy [sorry hunny, no surprises here right now ;)] to bring to you, the ladies of LIY, who need to know what to buy for their better half this holiday season. When it comes to gift giving, Nordstrom has a HUGE variety of high-quality, unique, and sure-to-be-loved gifts for everybody on your list. I know that guys specifically can be the hardest ones to shop for [don’t worry, there are almost 2,000 ideas here!] so I thought this blog post would be handy to see gifts for a guy, chosen by a guy!

Curious to see what made Shawn’s list? Let’s take a peek under the tree and find out:

Flipfield Reversible Snap Mock Neck Top • Tommy Bahama // Sierra E-Tip Gloves • The North Face // Ostrichpillow Go Memory Foam Travel Pillow // Charcoal Body Bar • Jack Black // Aerolite 20-Ounce Transit Bottle • Stanley // Kikkerland Design Golf In a Tin • Kikkerland

A few things to note from the items above — he has had these gloves for years and absolutely loves them. Thanks to their handy ability to be able to use your phone while staying warm and the sleek fit, they are great! Second, we’re traveling internationally and we’ve never had a neck pillow – after seeing this one it was a great option to try [verdict is in and we love it] so if you have a jetsetter on your list, that could be a great way to go!

Cloudvista Waterproof Trail Running Shoe • On // Kikkerland Design Golf In a Tin • Kikkerland

Next up, Shawn is always a sneaker guy. ON being one of his favorite brands, anytime he can spot a pair in a unique color combo, he is game. He added this pair to the cart immediately! I have bought ON Sneakers for my dad a few different times and he is a huge fan! Great gift idea for guys of all ages!

Aerolite 20-Ounce Transit Bottle • Stanley

Everywhere Shawn goes, so does a water bottle. Stanley is the brand of choice in our household [super durable, keeps drinks hot and cold for up to 2 days]. This guy is slim enough to fit in a stocking!

Snap 3-in-1 Magnetic Wireless Charger • Native Union // Flipfield Reversible Snap Mock Neck Top • Tommy Bahama // Sierra E-Tip Gloves • The North Face

Last but not least, the gift he opened and started using immediately — this 3-in-1 Magnetic Wireless Charger! It’s awesome for any techy on your list! It will charge your Apple Watch, Phone, and AirPods all at once!

Faux Flannel Knit Button-Up Shirt • Chubbies

Of course, a few articles of clothing are always a hit as well — at the top of his list: the flannel shown above, this shirt jacket from Vuori [let’s be real – anything from Vuori], and this reversible pullover!

Lucky for me, my Christmas shopping for Shawn is now complete [just kidding hunny, I’m sure I’ll come up with some unexpected stocking stuffers of gum and chapstick that you’ll never see coming ;)]
