The special man in your life sometimes needs a special gift, maybe it's his birthday, or Father's Day, perhaps Valentine's Day or Christmas. Or maybe just because. Whatever the occasion, here's a list of some Gr8 Gifts for Guys.
It's often tough to decide what to give. Consider yourself lucky if your special someone has a hobby that requires "things"; such as model trains or perhaps he has a Lego obsession. Or maybe he loves toiletries or Disney! Then you have an unending choice of gifts to buy.
However, if, like me, your guy doesn't really like "things," you have to dig a little deeper on gift giving occasions.
If your guy has a sweet tooth, make something special for him. We polled our guys and created a list of their favorite desserts.
But, just in case you have an itch to get your guy something, we thought it would be Gr8 Fun to give you some recommendations. So from the guys in our lives, to the guys in yours... Gr8 Gifts for Guys!
Let's Start with Cocktails!
As you can probably tell from our dinner posts, our guys love their cocktails. Phil, particularly, enjoys a good Scotch and loves to collect them from each region. He even did a Scotch tasting!
If this sounds like your guy, he'll appreciate a special bottle that he wouldn't buy for himself.

Giant Ice Cubes
Large ice cubes melt more slowly so the liquor stays cold longer without getting watered down. These ice cube trays make a unique, affordable gift. Our guys love them.
A Good Glass
Vince loves a glass with some weight on the bottom. These were a gift a couple years ago. We haven't found this exact glass, but this one is similar.
We've had a few Gr8 Dinners where we played games and it was always a lot of fun. If he loves a good game, try one of these.
If he plays backgammon, he probably has a board he loves. However, for travel Vince loves his suede roll-up backgammon board. So compact when rolled it fits almost anywhere!
These aren't your ordinary playing cards. They're plastic, so they last longer and don't get soiled or bent. Shuffle up and deal!
If He Cooks...
Our guys love to be at the grill and sometimes even help in the kitchen!
Do you sous vide? Or, more importantly, does he? If he enjoys cooking, he'll love this Breville Joule Sous Vide. So easy to use!
Pssst, if SHE enjoys cooking, she'll love it, too!
If he enjoys doing the grilling, then give him a set of shiny new tools! This Cuisinart set is stainless steel and comes with a handy storage case.
Some Tech Ideas
Whether you have a high tech guy or a low tech guy, these are Gr8 ideas!
- Wireless Apple Air Pods are Joel's favorite. He uses them at home and they're especially Gr8 for travel! Who wouldn't love to get a set?
- This heated travel mug holds a charge and keeps your coffee at your preferred temperature.
- If your guy is a reader, the new Kindle Paperwhite is now waterproof. Now that's a Gr8 Gift!
Keep Him Comfy
Comfort is the name of the game when relaxing and having a Gr8 time!
A Warm Shirt
Tim is the biker of our Gr8 Group and he loves a thermal shirt out on the road. And my guy loves his thermals when hanging around the house on a weekend. Sometimes we need more than just love to keep us warm!
If you want to do good while also giving a gift, consider purchasing from this non-profit, fair trade shop, The Little Market, where "every purchase makes a difference."
