Men are used to wearing simple fashions, but they do accessorize from time to time. A chain necklace is a great, classic piece of jewelry that would make an awesome addition to any man’s closet.

This luxurious 18-karat skull chain necklace with Northskull's signature style has metal details that make it stand out.1 It is a simple accessory for a low-key guy, but it is quite striking and would look great draped over a plain T-shirt as an addition to a casual outfit to make it more interesting.

One of the coolest Christmas gifts for men that you can get for any guy is a wooden phone case from Otto Cases.2 We love this Mayan Calendar design, but you can customize it according to your personality. This gift is so versatile that you can get one for your dad, brother, or boyfriend—literally one of the best gifts for manly men in your life!

With a name like that, who wouldn’t be intrigued? This coffee labels itself as the World’s Strongest Coffee. They roast organic, fair-trade coffee beans to make a bold, caffeinated blend. It has so much caffeine that they'll refund your money if it doesn't make you wide-eyed and hyper. They even sent it to the International Space Station to keep the guys at NASA Expedition 56 awake.

You can also opt for a pair of their 16 oz Death Wish Dark Roast Grounds that includes two packs of bold and intense Arabica and Robusta bean blends.

Dopp Kit

No gentleman deserves to pack his toiletries in a zip-loc bag for family vacations, quick getaways with friends, or, worse, business trips. Plastic is bad for the environment and is not aesthetically pleasing. Plus, if he has a razor inside, a plastic bag will surely not suffice to contain the blade’s cutthroat edge.

This Flat Folio Dopp Kit from Ezra Arthur is a man’s life-changer. It is an awesome gift that sports a classic, vintage look with a space-spacing, compact design.

Ezra Arthur crafted each kit using Horween leather and 100-year-old techniques to achieve a sturdy leather foundation. The surface is stain-resistant, making it easy to wipe clean—a bonus for your man that he'll love if he likes to keep stuff clean.

Cast Iron Grill Pan

During the holidays, all the manly men take over the grilling duties. What would be the best manly gift to give to your grill masters? A cast-iron grill pan, of course!

One can never have too many of these. There are many benefits4 to cooking with cast iron cookware. Not only does food cook evenly in a cast iron pan, but it’s also healthier and cost-efficient in the long run.

This particular product, the Cast Iron Square Grill Pan, has low, slanted sides to make flipping easy. It also has raised ridges which help remove fat from food to cook healthy meals. It has a long handle, a convenient hole for hanging, and a helper handle to make transferring the pan easy.

It's foundry seasoned and ready to use on all cooking surfaces, grills, and campfires upon purchase. It’s also oven-safe, making it perfect for cooking your Christmas chicken in the oven.

As the year is also about to end, why not give your guy loved ones a unique gift that will spark a new hobby interest? Naked Armor’s best-selling Solomon Straight Razor Kit is an ideal gift idea for guys that will surely leave them speechless and in awe.

Belt

Men wore belts during the Bronze Age7 to add flair to their outfits and as a piece of clothing to hold their weapons and tools. On the other hand, the modern man considers the belt a must-have to keep his pants up and avoid a plumber's crack.

Belts make for the best gifts for manly men or older guys, like your dad, grandfather, boss, and your husband. Why not make it extra special by getting the men in your life an artisan or handcrafted real American belt?

Gavere Leather has been specializing in creating traditional custom-made leather belts the traditional way since the 70s. Their Name Belt Eagle and American Flag is a 1 1/2" wide belt made with heavy-tooling leather featuring a time-honored patriotic design. He'll surely love the beautiful two-tone airbrushed facade that creates a classic color that would pair well with any outfit or occasion.

We love this watch because it’s a stylish tactical watch. It’s analog, but it also features a stealth-like digital information panel that one can customize through an App that has to be downloaded from the Special Ops website.8 So you can view more than just the time on this watch.

It can easily connect with any IOS or Android smartphone, enabling live time communication and messaging. Its watch hands can transform into an all-terrain compass, so you always know your way around. It’s also water-resistant up to 100 meters.

You can get this high-tech wrist piece in your choice of silver, gray, or black titanium. This is an awesome gift for a man who appreciates the importance of combining cutting-edge technology and refined aesthetics.

Whiskey Bullets

After a long day, a shot of whiskey helps relax your body9 by calming your nerves. As your blood flows more freely, more oxygen reaches your organs, making you feel more at ease.

The best way to enjoy whiskey, aside from being served on its own, is to have it on the rocks. But the problem is, sometimes ice dilutes the depth of its flavor.

Sip Dark10 has developed a solution for that. You and the manly men in your life will enjoy your drinks more with their stainless steel bullet whiskey stones. Aside from looking great, these bullets do not float to the top of your glass and do not make your drinks taste or smell weird. Your guy can use it to make his beer cold with it too. But, most especially, they can be name-engraved, which makes them the perfect gift idea for guys!

Manly Soap Gift Set

Squatch Gift Set

The range of scents available is quite limited when it comes to products specifically for men's bodies, such as body wash and other types of body care.

The vast majority of brands only provide a few different options, which, unfortunately, only come in a handful of varying base scents you cannot switch between daily. Is it not boring to smell the same every day? Manly men love to experiment with new fragrances, so one of the best gifts for men is a soap gift set.

At Dr. Squatch, you can pick from many fragrance options.13

Their original gift basket comes with their classic manly-scented soap with fragrances like Pine Tar, Bay Rum, and Grapefruit that will surely excite every guy's olfactory senses and leave them smelling irresistible. These artisanal soaps also come in aesthetic packaging, which makes them manly gifts that are sure to be appreciated in any man's bathroom.

Holiday gift-giving should not be a source of stress. Hopefully, one of the places we've suggested will have the perfect gift for your loved ones and be worth your hard-earned cash.

Have a happy gift-giving!
