Imagine a situation, its Christmas morning, your husband opens the gift you left him under the tree and you see some disappointment on his face because the gift was bought last second and you know it isn’t a good gift.
In this article, we are going to try to help you avoid that by doing two things.
First and foremost, we will be reviewing some really good Christmas gift ideas that are likely to be a hit with a wide array of husbands.
Secondly, we have also prepared a concise guide to give some tips for buying a gift for your husband.
Finally, if you want us to pick the best overall gift from our Christmas gifts for husband list, we would say to pick the YETI Rambler 20 oz Tumbler.
A Spotlight On Some of The Christmas Gifts For Husband 2020:
YETI Rambler 20 oz Tumbler
To start off our review list, we are going to be taking a look at the YETI Rambler 20 oz Tumbler. Now, this may be drawing some strange looks from those of you reading this list; “really, you are recommending that I get my husband a coffee cup?”
However, we can’t stress enough just how much that would be underselling the quality of this particular entry. Yeti products aren’t just “coffee mugs,” they are “THE Coffee Mug.” Yeti is widely regarded as being the king of travel mugs, and their gifts are always pretty highly regarded, which is why they tend to be so pricey (by travel mug standards anyway).
So, what exactly is it that makes these travel mugs so famous and deserving of their higher than usual price point? Well, there are a couple of features that one could point at, but the reality is that the biggest reason to buy a Yeti travel mug is because of the amazing insulation system that they use.
It is extremely difficult to overstate just how well-built these particular products are. The tumbler is built basically like a bank vault with the goal of keeping the drink inside at temperature, whether that be hot or cold.
Something like the YETI Rambler 20 oz Tumbler is the perfection option for a husband who has to be at work early and who can’t afford to sit down and drink a proper morning coffee. The ultra secure lid ensures that the liquid never spills out, no matter what happens (this can be a lifesaver if your husband works in a field with professional dress). Likewise, the reinforced sides keep the drink hot throughout the day, so they can take extra coffee and never have to make a coffee run at work.
So again, if you are worried at all about buying a simple travel mug as a Christmas gift, don’t be, because this is basically the Rolls Royce of travel mugs and is sure to be appreciated by every working husband.
- Insulated sides keep drinks warm or cold for up to 24 hours.
- Spill-proof lid.
- Very durable; the only travel mug you will ever need.
- A single coffee cup might not quite be enough of a gift.
34PCS BBQ Grill Accessories Tools Set
Consistently, one of the most popular hobbies for adult men throughout all of America is grilling. Don’t be fooled, while some men may like to complain about having to grill up dinner, the reality is that most men enjoy it.
So, naturally, we thought that including some grill related items on our best Christmas gifts for husband list was an absolutely fantastic idea. Now, getting an actual grill would be good, but that’s both very expensive and also kind of hard to give as a Christmas gift depending on the area you live in (if it snows).
So, we thought that a better option would be a nice grill accessory kit. After all, it is grill related, cheaper than an actual grill, and a perfect option for placing it under the tree.
While it would be an understatement to say that there are a lot of grill accessory kits out there, we ultimately decided on this one because we felt that it best managed to balance all the various factors that one looks for in a grilling accessory set; that is to say, price, quality, and variety. Not only is each tool in this accessory set extremely well-made, but it also comes with a proper variety of tools.
As you can see for yourself from the product name, it has a whopping 34 different pieces inside the set, including an extra case to actually hold all the accessories. Finally, it manages to do all of this, despite costing a lot less than you would assume given its high quality and the number of accessories that you get.
One potential issue that you may encounter with giving this accessory set as a gift is that if you live in a part of the world with cold weather and snow, then there is going to be a sort of unseemly gap between giving the gift and actually getting to see your husband use it. While this isn’t a huge issue or a deal breaker, or anything like that, but it can be potentially annoying.
- 34 piece accessory set.
- Each piece is well-made.
- Comes with a helpful carrying case.
- Doesn’t cost as much as you would think.
- Going to be a bit of a delay between gift giving and it being used.
Braun Series 9 9370cc Electric Razor for Men
Do you know how people often say that they will get something, but they often don’t and just stick with whatever they are using? We all do that to some extent and for many men, the product that they do it with is an electric razor.
So many men say that they will be getting a new razor and that it will be electric because they are so much more convenient, and they save so much more time. However, most men never end up following through with it because the cost is too high and most just end up sticking with inefficient manual razors.
So, if you are ever looking for a good present for your husband, you can never go wrong with an electric razor; even if they already have one, an upgrade never hurts. The personal one that we would recommend is the Braun Series 9 9370cc Electric Razor for Men.
There are a lot of good things to like about the Braun and they will surely make any man fall in love with the razor. First off, one of the biggest advantages of going electric is that it saves time. The Braun really hammers this point home as it has around 5 separate elements all operating at once. That means that your husband can get a trim quickly and efficiently in the mornings. No more being late to work because they had to shave.
A big complaint regarding electric razors is that they don’t give a close shave. However, more expensive models like the Braun Series 9 9370cc counter this somewhat by having a lot of cutting elements.
The 5 different elements on the Braun all do a different job at once to ensure a smooth, clean shave. Most men end up being impressed with the quality of shave that they get from electric razors like this one.
- Can be used either in the shower or without moisture.
- Really well-made electric razor.
- 5 different cutting elements provide a close shave.
- Handy for on the go shaving.
- Is definitely a bit pricey.
RENPHO Foot Massager
As we said before, a good use of Christmas gifts is to get someone something that they would potentially really like, but that they would never invest in themselves. One such example of this is a foot massager.
If your husband does anything that involves him standing or moving around all day, whether they be an office worker or a construction worker, then they can seriously benefit from a foot massager. It will help them relax after a long day and it will help to prevent any lingering pain issues from developing down the line. However, how many men would actually bother to buy one unprompted? Not many.
This particular foot massager that we are reviewing isn’t the absolute most deluxe model that one can find or anything like that, but it is very well-made and not too pricey, given the quality of what you are getting. It has all the settings that you want to see in a foot massager, including different massage speeds, a heated setting, a small profile, and much more.
Really, the only negative of this present is that you could end up using it more than your husband, which never looks good when dealing with a Christmas present.
- Not too expensive for a high-end foot massager.
- Lots of useful options to play around with.
- Provides really solid pain relief.
- Can help to prevent chronic back and foot pain.
- Might be used by you as much as your husband.
Sony WHCH710N Noise Cancelling Headphones
For the final review on our list, we want to take a look at a really high-end pair of headphones from Sony. Why headphones, you may ask. Well, headphones are a really great gift for husbands because they can compliment a wide array of interests. Does your husband enjoy exercising?
Well then, the headphones are a great way to keep them occupied while they exercise. Do they have an affinity for gaming or watching movies on their own, then headphones can be really useful there, especially if you sit in the same room. And just in general, who doesn’t like listening to high-quality music and audio?
So, headphones are a great gift idea and the Sony WHCH710N Noise Cancelling Headphones are exactly the sort of high-end headphone set that any husband is sure to appreciate.
As the name states, these are noise cancelling headphones. However, the title is understating it quite a bit, these are exceptionally good at blocking out noise from outside. The noise cancellation on these headphones is simply amazing.
You can throw a concert in the same room as someone wearing these headphones and they won’t be disturbed. This is perfect if you like to read or do something else while your husband plays video games or watches television.
A big aspect of any set of headphones is versatility. You want it to be compatible with basically anything and these headphones certainly fit that criteria. Thanks to their amazing Bluetooth connectivity, they can be connected to anything that you can think of. Furthermore, they don’t lose connection easily either. As an added bonus, we would also point out that these headphones are extremely comfortable to wear.
- Very comfortable set of headphones.
- Good audio quality.
- Great Bluetooth connectivity.
- Really good noise cancelling features.
- Also a very pricey gift idea.
Our Guide To Buying A Good Christmas Gift For Your Hubby
Now, we know that writing a gift buying guide for a group as large as an entire sex is difficult, to say the least. A big part of the difficulty comes from the fact that men are a large group and thus are very diverse.
Even if you limit it to a general country or cultural area, you are still going to end up an absolutely huge group to write about. We want to say upfront that we understand this. However, we still want to do our best to craft a guide and so to that end, we are going to have to do a good deal of generalizing.
Hopefully, the review list and buying guide will still be useful to those of you desperately struggling to find a Christmas gift for your husband.
Focus On utility Over Sentimentality
Look, as we said above, it is difficult to write a coherent guide about gift buying for men or women because it is difficult to generalize such a large group of people. However, we have to try our best for the purposes of this article. So, with that being said, one very important piece of advice that we would give you to start off the guide is to focus on utility over sentimentality.
Men tend not to be as invested in sentimental gifts as women are. This includes things like jewelry, pictures, special pieces of clothing, etc. They prefer things that they can look at and instantly say “oh I’m going to be able to use this to do x or to do y.” Those are the types of gifts that husbands are really going to be able to enjoy and appreciate getting.
Now, do men never want sentimental gifts? Of course not, there are plenty of times where men appreciate sentimental gifts. However, in general, men tend to prefer really functional gifts over sentimental ones. This is especially true during the Christmas season, where husbands are often the ones buying the gifts, which means that they don’t get any fun new toys to play around with.
Don’t Be Afraid Of Simplicity
Something that plagues a lot of people buying gifts for their husband is that they are afraid of going too simple. This is something that we mentioned in our review of the Yeti Tumbler Mug above. A lot of recommended gifts for a husband will seem excessively simple (mugs, simple tools, etc.) and this can make people turn away from them because they think “that’s way too simple to be a gift, my husband won’t appreciate it.”
However, we can’t stress enough how counter productive that line of thinking is. As we stated many times during the course of our best Christmas gifts for husband list, husbands are used to not really getting much in the way of gifts as they are usually the primary gift buyers. So, even gifts that may seem simple can make a big impact.
Don’t Be Afraid Of Stereotypes
Building up on the last point, we also want to say that you shouldn’t be afraid of investing in “stereotypical” guy gifts. Again, we know that every man is different, but stereotypes exist for a reason, and its because they do genuinely apply to a lot of people.
If you are totally in the dark about what your husband could want and like for a Christmas gift, then you can’t go wrong with thinking about some stereotypical guy gifts (tech, tools, and other things like that) and picking from that.
A lot of people will say something along the lines of “oh that’s a stereotypical guy gift” when shopping, but that is another one of those unhelpful attitudes that can lead to you overlooking good gifts. When it comes buying gifts, don’t be afraid to embrace stereotypes, they often work.
