The Top 10 Holiday Gifts for Guys (based on his favorite destination)

If his favorite destination is: New Zealand

Allbirds shoes

The minimalist, ridiculously soft wool runner shoe makes a perfect gift for any guy.  Made from ultra-fine New Zealand merino wool, he can wear them everywhere, from the office, to the gym, to the bar, to the airport, and feel like he’s walking around in slippers.

A new suitcase

For the guy that’s always on the go, get him a brand new sophisticated hard-shell suitcase for all of his travels. One of my new favorite suitcase brands Brandless is having a Cyber Monday sale on suitcases – 40% off with the code MONDAY.


If his favorite destination is: Key West

Yeti Cooler

Yeti’s portable coolers have been engineered to be the toughest, coolest, most indestructible coolers out there. They’ve gained a cult-following among everyone from sportfishermen to casual tailgaters, and they make a great gift for the guy who loves to keep things cool wherever he is.


If his favorite destination is: Hawaii

A Kenny Flowers shirt

Hawaiian shirts have gone way beyond Hawaii this year. A festive look once reserved for dads and luaus, the Hawaiian shirt is now a staple in every guy’s closet for good times. Kenny Flowers is 2019’s best tropical shirt brand, and their high-quality shirts are so soft that you’re going to want to steal them for yourself. They come in all kinds of styles ranging from floral & fun, to tribal & cool, to subtle & chic. The best part? you can pick yourself up a matching cover up or kimono in the same print for a matchy-matchy couples pic on your next vacation.

Even in the winter, versatile styles like The Napple or long sleeve ones like The Tropic Thunder will keep a little bit of paradise with him at all times.
