The Ultimate Gift Giving Guide For Men

Let the sun rise on the gift-giving season and treat the man in your life to a present you know he’ll love.

If you're short on gift ideas for the significant male (or men) in your world, whether it be your father, partner, brother or husband, we have the definitive guide of gifts for you.


Words By Eva Marchingo

Outdoorsy Gifts

His face is always sunkissed from spending as much time outdoors as he can.

His speckled body reminds you of his ebullient nature and the adventures yet to come. He’s the kind of guy who never quite relinquished the childlike habit of immediately taking his presents for a spin outside, and you love him for it.

If he spends all his time outside working out, spice up his routine with activity dice or a patterned yoga mat. He’ll be sporting a big smile upon returning indoors and sweating our pure gratification.

If he prefers to have something to keep him occupied while outside, gift him with a game like bocce or skittles. He’ll be finding excuses to get them out at every turn; going to the park, having friends over, enjoying freshly mowed grass – time for a little lawn game.

For You Too Gifts

He loves your knack for guile-gift giving, which is lucky because this year you’re serving presents for two.

He considers any gift that guarantees more time with you to be a felicitous treat. He knows this gift comes from a deep place of appreciation, and you know it comes from a deep admiration of the time you spend together.

If he loves curating playlists for you, a portable speaker will let him play them for you whenever and wherever he pleases. After all, your anthem deserves to be played loud for the world to hear.

If he’s always looking for an excuse to wrap you up in his arms, a blanket will serve him well. Keep the blanket close to home for relaxing on the couch or leave it in the car for spontaneous nights spent watching the sun fall into the horizon on the beach.

Food & Wine Gifts

He loves everything to do with food and wine; from afternoon beers on the beach to fine dining dates in the city.

He loves to cook and watch you cook. He loves watching you make cocktails and tasting your delicious concoctions, and of course, returning the favour. He won’t be found far from a fridge or esky this gift-giving season.

If he prioritises sustainability in the kitchen, he’ll love anything reusable, from picnicware to grow-it-yourself goods. Help him nurture his green thumb with some seeds for your new veggie patch.

If he loves nothing more than sharing a cup of tea or coffee with his favourite people, make that experience a little bit sweeter with some special teacups and saucers. He’ll get a taste of luxury with every sip, making it the best part of his afternoon.

Lifelong Gifts

He’s in need of something particular, maybe a new wallet or a watch, maybe a new flask or a cork screw.

Or maybe he knows if anyone’s going to give him a gift to last a lifetime, it’s his girl. He appreciates quality, craftsmanship, and sustainability. He’s conscious of the waste often associated with the festive period, and you’re in a position to give him one present he definitely won’t be re-gifting.

If he’s the kind of guy who’s always taking notes or signing documents, a luxury pen will turn one of his most mundane tasks into an enjoyable.

If he needs décor in his house, give him the gift of a lifelong memory via a photo frame. You might choose to fill it with your favourite photo of you two together, or with a photo he’s taken, or even give him a selection to choose from.

Fashion Gifts

He’s a fashion-forward man, an avant-garde icon in your little cosmos.

He will never pass up an opportunity to get dressed to the nines with his perfect ten. He also deeply respects your stylistic input, you might even go as far as to say you gave him his predilection for fashion.

If he’s ready for something outrageous, play around with new colours, patterns and textures. A printed bucket hate will make all his sun-smart, power-clashing dreams come true. Or A pocket square will level up his suiting style.

If he’s still new to the game, give him something easy to wear and easy to pair. Maybe some colourful shorts, or a pair of sunglasses. Or lift his shoe game with a pair of R.M. Williams boots, an iconic fashion staple for Australian men.
