Gift ideas for every man in your life


(BPT) - It’s that time of year again. With the holiday season quickly approaching, it can be tough to know what to get for each special person, especially the guy in your life.

Oftentimes, we are left struggling to find something that they would appreciate, let alone actually use. If you’re currently racking your brain to find the perfect gift for that special someone, have no fear because we have outlined gifts for every type of guy (plus a universal one that everyone would like — think of it as a cheat code). Here are some ideas that won’t break the bank.

For the self-care junkie

For the man that prioritizes grooming, things like cologne, body wash, shaving kits and lotion are the way to go. For body wash lovers, give the gift of nice smells with Irish Spring, which offers a diverse line of body washes to fit any guy’s fragrance preferences.

For the gym rat

Gym lovers unite! For the guy that loves to pump some iron, give him gifts like dumbbells, workout clothes, water bottles, yoga mats and pedometers.

For the jetsetter

As the pandemic winds down and travel ramps back up, giving the gift of travel necessities is always a good idea. Things like a new suitcase, travel tags, dopp kits or headphones are always a safe bet.

For the hiking aficionado

While hiking is fun, it requires a great deal of equipment. Give the gift of preparedness by tapping into his love for the outdoors with things like tents, backpacks, mosquito nets, water bottles and bear spray. As a bonus, throw in a bar of Irish Spring soap to help him stay fresh amidst the smelly wilderness. Onwards and upwards!

For the animal lover

Is the man in your life a dog or cat person? Either way, you can never go wrong with giving a gift to his furry friend. Dog (or cat) leashes, food bowls, tug toys and collars are all classic, yet much appreciated, gifts!

For the self-proclaimed entrepreneur

Nothing better than a man with ambition! Set him up for success with a briefcase and some nice stationery and pens. Or go the fancy route and dress him up with a new suit and button-ups. The grind never stops!

When all else fails, you can give the man in your life the gift of 24-hour freshness with Irish Spring’s curated perfect gift set. Between hitting the gym, working all day and running errands, this gift set will give the men in your life a long-lasting, fresh clean. After all, no one wants a stinky man ruining their holiday celebrations.
