Holiday Gift Guide for Him, 2018

It’s time for my next 2018 holiday gift guide – a gift guide for the men in your life! (If you haven’t seen my holiday gift guide for HER yet, head here!) I recommend using this season of giving as a way to improve his life, style, or personal care, if ya know what I mean. ;P If you’re stuck on what to get him, here are some of my top recs (Dad, don’t read this!).

Holiday Gift Guide for Him, 2018

  • Counterman Preview Gift Set: This set comes with the Daily Exfoliating Cleanser, Smoothing Shave Cream, Cooling Aftershave Tonic, and Oil-Free Face Lotion. These products are great for all skin types, and this set provides everything he needs to take care of his skin! These products will help exfoliate his skin, prep him for a clean shave, soothe the skin, and moisturize. Plus, they’re travel-friendly! Men need to switch to nontoxic, safe personal care products, too – they’re not immune to endocrine disruptors or carcinogens! This set is an easy way to swap out all of his skincare for safer options.

  • The Alitura Razor – This brass, double-edged, long-handled razor provides the closest possible shave without the harsh environmental plastic waste you find in most disposable razors. This is a must for any man who regularly shaves, which is most! The smooth, sharp blades literally wipe the hair follicle off without any pulling or tugging that can cause skin irritation. It also comes in two colors!

  • Primally Pure Mini Beard Oil Pack: This set comes with a mini-sized version of Primally Pure’s Mojito and Old-Fashioned Beard oils, which are made with a high quality blend of carrier oils and essential oils to help nourish and tame facial hair. Even if he doesn’t have facial hair, this will help nourish any shaven face and make his skin extra smooth!

  • Alitura Presence – I used to always love getting my dad cologne for Christmas, until I learned about all of the toxic ingredients in traditional scents! This luxurious fragrance is made from clean, natural, and organic ingredients, and it smells incredible. Alitura Presence contains essential oils like Sandalwood, Ylang Ylang, and Cardamom to create a smoldering, rich scent that anyone would love.Holiday Gift Guide for Him, 2018
  • Puffer Jacket – A nice puffer jacket is a staple in any man’s closet, especially if he lives somewhere where it gets chilly! I love this one because it’s not too puffy, and it has a hood!Holiday Gift Guide for Him, 2018
  • Zip Front Jacket – Another necessity for every guy – a nice, dark jacket. This jacket is versatile enough to be dressed up or dressed down, and it will go with almost any shirt.

    Holiday Gift Guide for Him, 2018

  • Primal Kitchen Steak / BBQ Sauces – These are new releases, but obviously I purchased them as soon as they came out. They are SO delicious! These are the perfect healthy option for anyone who loves a good sauce, since most conventional BBQ sauces & Steak sauces are filled with sugar and inflammatory oils! Not only are they delicious, but they contain no added sweeteners!

    Holiday Gift Guide for Him, 2018

  • Four Sigmatic Mushroom Coffee – If he’s going to drink coffee, make sure he’s getting the highest quality possible. Adding in some adaptogens won’t hurt, either! I think Four Sigmatic coffee is the best option for coffee not only because it tastes incredible, but also because it gives you the caffeine without the huge spike and crash, thanks to the adaptogens! This coffee is made from 100% organic Arabica coffee beans and is mixed with Lion’s Mane, which supports cognition and memory, and Chaga, which provides a ton of antioxidants and helps support immunity! It comes in ready-to-go single-serve packs – all he has to do is mix it with some hot water. (And don’t worry, it tastes like coffee, not mushrooms!) You can use my code “CRW” for 15% off any Four Sigmatic products!

  • MAPS Anabolic, Aesthetic, or Performance – MAPS fitness programs are great for any man looking to build muscle and strength – it’s like having your own personal trainer, but a lot cheaper. There are a lot of fitness programs out there that aren’t programmed very well, but these will actually give him results. MAPS Anabolic is the go-to program for anyone getting started with MAPS fitness programs. Aesthetic is higher volume and geared more towards people with certain aesthetic / physique goals, and Performance was created with athletes in mind. Many people like to cycle from Anabolic to Performance to Aesthetic to keep progressing in different ways, but you can also pick one program and keep cycling through it, adding weight as you go. Another option is to get the RGB Super Bundle, which comes with all 3 programs! You can use my discount code “WELLNESS” for 10% off of any MAPS programs or gear from their website!

  • Essential Oils: Get the man in your life into essential oils if he hasn’t tried them yet! Teach him how to use them topically, internally, and with a diffuser. Trust me, he will love them. I have so many male friends who are obsessed with diffusing essential oils in their work spaces and bedrooms. Some of my favorites to give men are Sandalwood (great for skin, hair, grounding, balancing testosterone), Deep Blue (soothing and comforting, perfect for sore muscles, aches, or pains), Cedarwood (promotes relaxation, clarifying, good for skin health), and Siberian Fir (relaxing, balances emotions, and soothes body). I also love to gift the Athlete’s Kit, which contains Breathe, On Guard, Lavender, Melaleuca, Peppermint, Deep Blue Rub, and a compact pouch to keep everything in! This kit contains everything anyone would need to support their body and overall health – especially great for the active guy! I think it’s the perfect mini starter kit for any man.

  • Shungite Pyramid Crystal – Shungite is a powerful crystal that helps protect against EMFs, aids in physical healing, supports work performance, and supports the root chakra. It also helps to protect against or transform any harmful or negative energy, and works to regulate any energy field. This is one of my personal favorite crystals to keep near my desk (since I have so many electronics around), and I love this one in particular for men because it just LOOKS like a badass crystal. Something that any guy wouldn’t mind having on his desk!

  • Portable Retro Bluetooth Speaker – This mini speaker is perfect for travel, on-the-go, or bringing anywhere you might not have much space! It operates via Bluetooth, or you can plug it in, and the sound is great for how small it is! This is a really cost effective option if you want to get someone speakers without spending too much money.

    Holiday Gift Guide for Him, 2018

  • Large Bamboo Wood Bluetooth Speaker – If you’re really going for it with the speakers, I love the look of this bamboo wood speaker for any room! If he likes to show off his speakers and loves a loud sound, this is perfect.

    Holiday Gift Guide for Him, 2018

  • A New Pair of Chucks – Too many men are walking around with 10-year-old Chucks that are literally ripping at the seams. Help him out and give him an upgrade. And if he doesn’t have a pair of Chucks, he needs them!

    Holiday Gift Guide for Him, 2018

  • MVMT Watch – MVMT carries a ton of different men’s watches that look great on and come at affordable prices. Look around their site for the color / style that you think the man in question would like most – there are plenty of options! I like this neutral one because it goes with almost everything. Watches are a great way for guys to easily dress up their look and appear more put-together.

    Holiday Gift Guide for Him, 2018

  • Weekender Bag: Every guy needs a nice duffel for weekend adventures, ya know? I have friends who literally use paper grocery bags or Jansport backpacks from high school because they don’t want to buy themselves a nice duffel. Ugh. This bag is roomy, good-looking, high-quality, and at a great price point!

    Holiday Gift Guide for Him, 2018

  • Ridge Wallet – This thin, RFID-blocking (blocks against wireless theft) wallet is simplistic and comes in a variety of colors and styles. It carries up to 12 IDs and credit cards, and comes with a cash strap, money clip, or both. Perfect for the minimalist!
  • Tickets to a game: There’s nothing better than gifting an experience! If he loves a particular sports team, get some tickets to a game. Even nosebleed seats are fun!

    Holiday Gift Guide for Him, 2018

  • The Male Brain by Louann Brizendine – My last gift guide included The Female Brain, so of course I had to include The Male Brain in this one! This book dives into how the male brain is developed and wired, and how that impacts why men are the way they are. This will help any man understand himself a bit better! If you have a significant other, I recommend getting both The Male Brain and The Female Brain for you and  your S.O. to read and swap! #CouplesBookClub
