Best Christmas Gifts for Husband

July 06, 2022 9 min read

Husband and father. They're really just two sides of the same coin: Always the family man; always on the side of saving and giving; and never the ones to treat themselves. That is not acceptable, and it is time to change it, no matter how obstinate your husband is about scrimping and skimping. Spent on his behalf on Christmas gifts for husband that, upon unwrapping, will be officially inaugurated into his curated, rarely updated collection of "Shit He Actually Likes."

And think about splurging wisely—a family feud over money isn't cute in this economy. So, whether you know he'll get a bang out of the latest cool tech, eagerly stock the top-shelf with rare whiskey, immediately flex a new pair of kicks, or rest comfortably in some new home upgrades. Here are the best Christmas gifts for husband that he'll use, for any occasion worthy of giving him a gift—so, anytime?

1. Custom-Built Pillow

He'll be able to take a questionnaire about his sleeping habits and issues with Pluto, which the company will use to custom-make his pillow. It will most likely be more effective than a melatonin tablet

2. Cooling Weighted Blanket

If he's a nervous, restless sleeper who can't sleep through the night without waking (you), a weighted blanket with cooling technology could help.

3. Frames Audio Sunglasses

When Bose combined sunglasses and headphones with its Frames, it stepped into the future. They'll play audio into your husband's ears via Bluetooth, so no one else can hear it. That is extremely advanced technology.

4. Personalized Metallic LP Record

We recommend this framed art print if you want to be a little sappy and sentimental with your gift It's as simple as selecting a song, a phrase, and a color scheme. And it also looks pretty cool.

5. Subscription to Beer of the Month

What hophead wouldn't want to try four new craft beers every month?

7. Issue Four

Yes, we'll get some gas here. You can't beat the swag, which includes sneaks, hot sauce, rolling papers, beach towels, and bitters.

8. MasterClass Annual Membership

The masterClass provides him with the opportunity to learn a completely new skill from the best. He can learn to cook with Gordan Ramsay, play in a band with Metallica, tell stories with Lavar Burton, and more. See? The very best. And, supply chains be damned, you can get this gift at the last minute.

9. Whiskey Glass with Silicone Ice Mold

This glass has a silicone-mold compartment for an ice slope that chills his spirits much better than melting rocks for your whiskey aficionado or design nerd.

10. The Carry-On Closet 2.0

His soiled carry-on can be discarded. Solgaard's Closet 2.0 will take its place, and it will include a built-in shelf that he can fill with clothes and fold down into the suitcase, as well as a USB port for charging devices.

11. Always In Motion Boxer

56. Wooden Desk Shelf

This desk shelf will look great in his home office. It even has a curved back to keep his valuables secure.
