Christmas Gift Ideas for Husband

Media Banner


He’s your go-to-guy, your closest friend, the love of your life—your amazing, wonderful husband. So how do you find a Christmas gift that lives up to all that? It may not sound easy, but a thoughtful gift given in a meaningful way will let him know how much he means to you, not just at Christmas, but all year long. We have some helpful guidelines here, but just remember that it’s what comes from your heart that matters most.

For The Sports Fan

Whether it’s football, basketball, hockey, or all of the above, there are many ways to treat a sports fan around the holidays. Game day tickets too expensive? Think outside the stadium and bring the fun to your living room. Package a game day gift basket, complete with merchandise from his favorite team (a jersey, hat, etc.), his favorite beer, snacks, and a “voucher” to have the house to himself or invite friends over for the big game.

For The Adventure Seeker

If he’s into hiking or biking, find a book of all the great trails in your own or neighboring states. Wrap in tissue paper, add to a large Christmas gift bag with some biking or hiking accessories (a small compass, water tablets, etc.), and add a card with a thoughtful note that says you love and appreciate him for his adventurous spirit.

Maybe he’s a real softie on the inside. If so, gift him with something warm and personal that will remind him of those who love him all year round. Download photos from your camera or smartphone and create a book or calendar for his desk. Have a photo that’s especially frame-worthy? This reclaimed wood frame is perfect for that. Better yet, find a photo of him and his guy friends—maybe a picture from your wedding day—and put it in this frame.

For The Chef

He loves to cook and build upon his culinary skills. (Lucky you!) Find a local culinary class that will teach him a new skill, or gift him with an array of spices, hot sauce, and other various ingredients that he can use. And since every chef needs to show off his work, consider a reversible serving board or tray for entertaining guests.

And if time is of the essence (…we know how that goes), here’s a no-pressure, tailor-made idea that should do the trick. If you like the idea of a cooking lesson or other related cooking item, for instance, you can send your man a Christmas ecard.

Last Minute Gift

We get it: the holidays can be hectic, and oftentimes your focus is on finding gifts for everyone else on your list. That’s when gift cards come in handy. And guess what? You don’t even have to leave the house! Send your man a gift in an ecard. It’s a thoughtful and quick way to find the perfect gift or gift card from many leading retailers.

Whatever you end up choosing, it’s important to remember that it’s not all about the tangible things; the time you spend together is the most valuable gift you can give each other.
