Finding the perfect gift for the men in your life can be complicated. While there are a few standbys that you can always count on (a trusty pair of socks, for example), you should feel excited about whatever you’re giving — and more importantly, you want him to be just as happy. No matter what you’re celebrating — his birthday, your anniversary, Christmas or another special occasion — go with something tailored to him and your budget. Get all the inspiration you need by taking a look at this list of the best gifts for men, which includes ideas for all the important guys in your life: your grandpa, dad, son, husband, boyfriend, brother, friend, and so on.
While we’ve included a few classic presents on this list (who wouldn’t love a brand-new indoor grill?), you’ll find a range of unique ideas, everything from personalized Etsy picks to top Amazon gifts for men that you can order at the very last minute. With so many options to choose from, it’s best to consider who you’re shopping for before you start scrolling: the beer lover who finds any excuse to crack open a cold one, the golfer who’s always out on the green, the at-home cook who can’t keep out of the kitchen, or the outdoorsman constantly seeking adventure. Then it’s time for you to break out your wallet and start shopping.

More Thoughtful Than a Basic Six-Pack
