Gifting makes the festival of Christmas more joyous and fun! But let’s just admit it, choosing Christmas gifts for men is a totally bamboozling experience.. Especially for women!
We all always get super confused whenever it is the time to buy a gift for that special man in our life – be it our boss, friend, brother, spouse or father. It is so hard to pick unique Christmas gifts for men every year, specifically when we don’t have any idea about their taste in fashion or anything else.
But with this list of 15 best Christmas gifts for men 2018, I am (hopefully, -fingers crossed-) going to make your gift hunting task for this year a tad bit easier! And don’t worry, There is a gift for all budgets, I have separated the list in two categories – under $$ and $$$. I would also include the links from where you can buy Christmas gifts with discounts or just send Christmas gifts online directly. All of these Christmas gifting ideas for men are very unique. Some are elegant and casual, apt as Christmas gifts for male boss, christmas gifts for male coworkers or your dad, while the others are more chilled out ones that you can probably give to your BFF or brother. Let’s get started with the post.
Best Christmas Gifts For Men 
Starting off the list with under $$ (Christmas gifts under $99 USD) Christmas gifts category!
Christmas Gifts For Men Under $$
1. Skincare Kit From Clinique
Men gotta pamper their skin too to have a perfect looking skin! And a good skin starts with the right kind of skincare products, right?
Most men don’t use any beauty products in their daily life because they find it hard to pick the right products for themselves. This all-inclusive skincare kit by Clinique will sort out their confusion since it has all the products that they would need to take care of their skin! Here are the 4 products that this kit contains.
- Clinique For Men Face Wash
- Clinique For Men Face Scrub
- Clinique For Men Moisturizing Lotion
- Clinique For Men Anti-Aging Eye Cream
Along with this kit, you can also give them a Beard oil – well, if they keep beard they gotta have a nice moisturizing oil for it, especially if they are continuing the no shave November! 😉

2. Crystal Whiskey Glasses
These whiskey glasses make the perfect Christmas gifts for male boss! They are elegant as well as classy. Don’t forget to give them a bottle of Jack Daniel’s, Seagram’s – or whatever their favourite whiskey brand might be, along with this set of glasses.
3. All-new Echo Dot 3rd Gen
This year has been all about the super cool voice assistant devices like Google Home and Amazon’s Alexa that make our lives a lot easier! Among all the voice assistance devices available out there, Amazon’s Echo Dot remains the top-rated one.
They recently launched the 3rd Gen Echo Dot which is now available on Amazon. So if you have a gadget freak man in your life, you should definitely consider gifting him this! This Echo Dot device would also make a very thoughtful Christmas gift idea for dad who is not a tech-savvy person since this device would make it easier for him to access services on the web or listen to the music!
4. Funny Workout T-Shirt For A Gymaholic Man
I mean, what kind of gymaholic man would not wish to have this ultra-cool workout T-shirt as a Christmas gift! It is pretty affordable and the best part is, it is made with premium quality fabric which would never make your man feel uncomfortable while he will be flexing in the gym!
5. Anti-theft Backpack with USB Port
Backpacks are back in trends! Earlier, they used to be carried by only school or uni students. But now, even office going people have started to carry them. I don’t see a reason why they should not do it, backpacks are just awesome! One can fit-in so many things inside them.
With so many advancements in technology, even the backpacks in the present times have started to come with exciting features. Take this anti-theft backpack as an example which comes with a USB charging port! If your man likes to go on hikes or long trips, he would surely love to have this backpack. The anti-theft features in this backpack make it completely secure so that one can move around freely, without worrying about getting their stuff stolen from their backpack while walking through a crowded area.
6. Elegant Silver/Gold Plated Cufflinks
Aren’t these cufflinks the best Christmas gifts for male coworkers?
Nowadays men are equally fashion-conscious as women! So while choosing a gift for them, you should think of something that they can easily incorporate in their daily outfits. Since men don’t wear jewelry, you can get them cufflinks.
Yes, cufflinks – that is something most of the men wear with their formal shirts. Cufflinks convey a formal message and always look very classy.
To make your gift of cufflinks more special, you can get them engraved with his and your initials! If you are buying them for your dad, you can engrave “best dad” on them.
7. Engraved Bracelet
Engraved bracelets are also one of the most popular Christmas gifting options for men in the jewelry category.
A Platinum bracelet which is engraved with your marriage date or a love message can be a thoughtful gift for your spouse which he will cherish for life! Many people have even started to get their fingerprints or ECG (heartbeat!) engraved on their spouse’s bracelet!
For your BFF, you might consider getting an engraved bracelet with a sweet friendship message. The one I have mentioned is a set of his and hers bracelets which you can get engraved directly through Amazon.
8. Sports Watch / Smart Watch
Move away from normal watches as gifts! It is the era of sports watches and smartwatches.
If your man is into fitness / gym activities or if he just loves trying out the latest gadgets, then you can gift him a nice sports watch or a smart watch.
Sports watches are also called fitness trackers. They track all the daily fitness activities and some of them can even track heart rate throughout the day! I am currently using Honor Band 3 which is a really nice budget friendly fitness tracker with a continuous heart rate monitoring function.
If you want to gift a wearable technology device to your gadget freak man, you might like the latest Samsung Gear S3 Frontier Smartwatch. For a sports watch/fitness tracker – there can never be a better option than a fitbit band! The Fitbit Charge 3 is the latest one from the brand which is definitely worth a look.
Christmas Gifts For Men Under $$$
9. Bluetooth Headphones / Bluetooth Speakers
Trust me, these two things are the perfect gifts that a music lover can ever ask for! I would prefer gifting Bluetooth headphones instead of speakers as they are easier to use and you know, one can blast their favourite music after plugging in their headphones as they would not disturb anyone! But if they already have a pair of headphones, go with speakers.
JBL headphones and speakers are always the top-rated ones! You can definitely consider going with this brand for your Christmas gift.
10. Coffee Maker / Keurig
I am a hardcore chai (tea) addict so I don’t know much about coffee makers or keurigs. But a lot of men (and women too, not generalizing of course!) love drinking coffee first thing after waking up in the morning to kick start their day and get rid of their morning grumpiness!
Oh and some night owls like me who pull all-nighters very frequently also like to have caffeine running through their veins so that they can stay awake. In short, if you give this kind of coffee maker or a keurig to your coffee-lover man, he will think of you with every cup of coffee he would make with it!
This exciting and funny prescription coffee mug can also be gifted with the keurig!

11. Kindle (Or a paperback book!)
We all have that person in our life who is a total bookworm! So what can be a more perfect gift for a bookworm guy than a Kindle? It is an e-reader device that kind of looks like a normal tablet device. One can read tens and thousands of books, newspapers and magazines on this device easily. Avid book readers don’t have to carry their books everywhere with them anymore, this sleek e-reader device is all that they need to take with them when they want to read their books on the go!
Okay wait a minute…
Since not everyone is a fan of this new technology to pursue their most favourite hobby i.e. book reading, you can give them a nice motivating book in a paperback form!
It would be hard for you to choose the perfect book for an avid reader since they might have read most of them.
My pick would be Who Moved My Cheese? by Spencer Johnson.
If you are still unsure which book to get for your man, you can explore his goodreads wishlist to get to know what all books he is looking forward to read! Amazing hack, isn’t it?
12. Gaming Laptop / Gaming Console
These two things might be a bit on the expensive part, but your gamer guy will love receiving them! Sometimes, we gotta spoil our loved ones with such opulent gifts – because they deserve the world, don’t they!
With 16 GB of RAM, 3.8 GHz Intel Core i7 processor and 7+ hours of battery life, the Acer Predator Helios 300 makes the best gaming laptop that you can give as a gift to your gamer guy. For the gaming console – go with the Xbox One S!
13. Ray-Ban Aviator Sunglasses
Do you know the best part about gifting sunglasses to someone? They are fashionable and unlike clothing, you never end up buying the wrong size of sunglasses for anyone!
There are a lot of different sunglasses styles for men like wayfarers, aviators, retro, clubmaster, etc,. Usually, Aviators are the most popular choice as they go with all face shapes and they are quite stylish as well! And when we are talking about sunglasses, we cannot help but mention the Ray-Ban sunglasses right?! These Ray-Ban 0rb3025 Polarized Aviator Sunglasses are a classic piece that any man out there would love to own and wear.
There are a lot of other popular sunglasses brands like Oakley, DKNY, Versace, etc, that you can go for if you have a better budget.
14. Air Fryer Oven With 7 in 1 Cooking Features
The perfect gift for a health-conscious man who loves cooking!
This air fryer comes with 7 in 1 cooking features with which, your man can make mouth-watering snacks that would be super healthy since they would be made with almost 0 oil! Such thoughtful products make the best Christmas gifts for man who has everything.

How can we miss out on adding a BBQ grill in our list!
A portable propane grill for BBQs like this one would encourage your man to host more BBQ parties at home for you! We still don’t know the mystery behind the love of men for BBQs, but getting a chance to devour on yummy BBQ made by your man is always a yay, isn’t it! Jokes apart, if your man likes barbecue-ing, this grill as a gift would make him happy for sure. This one is from a brand called Coleman Roadtrip, they have it available in different sizes as well, but most of them are in portable form.
