Holiday Gift Ideas for the Man in your Life

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. It’s the most wonderful time of the year and also the most stressful time of the year. If you are anything like me, you have already made your list and checked it twice. Okay, maybe more than twice! And it never fails the hardest people on my list are the men in my life. So, I have done some research and have come up with a few gifts that are guaranteed to make the men in my life smile. I decided to share the knowledge and take some stress off of you.

Self Care

Women aren’t the only ones that should be into pampering themselves. Most men don’t have a skincare regimen, and those that do only have one because the woman in their life purchased it for them. There are several great skincare lines for men specifically and some of our trusted brands have branched out and made skincare lines for men as well.

If you have a bearded beau, beard care is a must. Duke Cannon Supply Co. has amazing products that will have Santa jealous of his beard. You can order direct from the company, Ulta Beauty, or Amazon. You can also find it at some big box stores.

Another highly recommended brand is the Hawk Soap Company. This brand offers natural soaps, powders, lip balms, bug repellants, and other products. This is perfect for the man that loves the outdoors.

In the Kitchen

If the man in your life knows his way around the kitchen or is a grill master, then these gifts are for you!

Have you heard of the Swamp Bucket? It is the new cool way to boil seafood sans a propane tank and takes less time. This will come in handy with the upcoming crawfish season.

If the grill is your man’s thing, there are tons of cool new tools out there to make his grilling experience easier. The Searpro Kitchen Torch is the easiest way to light a fire. It is also great for a campfire.

A grill press is also a great tool for grilling steaks and burgers. And don’t forget the meat thermometer to make sure your food is prepared to the proper temperature. Don’t forget a grill tool set that gives him all the tools he needs to prepare the perfect meal.

With all of that cooking, he will need some spices. Our area has tons of local spice companies that offer packages of spices and sauces. Check out Cajun Nation and Cajun Ninja.

For the beer enthusiast, there are many local breweries that offer holiday selections. A gift card to Parish Brewing or Bayou Teche Brewing would allow for a great adventure to view the breweries. If he is a whiskey guy, check out Bayou Rum Distillery.

When in Doubt

You can never go wrong with a tie, socks, or a nice dress shirt for the dapper man in your life. Tickets to a concert, game, or special event are always a winner. And if all else fails, a Lowes or Home Depot gift card is always needed and appreciated.

I hope this list helps you with all of your shopping. You’re welcome, girl!
