Shopping for boys requires so much more effort than women get credit for. Although they claim they only want “socks and beer,” they’re all secretly hoping that Santa will surprise them on Christmas morning with the one gift they’ve been praying for but haven’t said one word about to anyone– including you. This year, there’s a 75% chance that item is an Nintendo Classic, which I’ve tactfully included as #1 on this list of popular gift ideas for guys. For the remaining 25% chancers, it’s a toss-up. I asked Kyle to write down some things he would enjoy (or has enjoyed) receiving for Christmas, and using his hilarious hand-written list, I carefully curated this list of 22 popular gift ideas for guys in 2016, ranging from $10 to $260 in price.
If you need to firmly stay within a budget, no worries– I’ve also linked to similar items for less whenever applicable. Plus, Shopbop and East Dane are having a crazy pre-Black Friday sale right now that’ll (hopefully) help mitigate your budgetary woes! Use code GOBIG16 to take 15% off orders of $200+, 20% off orders of $500+, and 25% off orders of $800+ on all full-price and sale items! The offer ends Monday, November 28th at midnight, so start shopping early to make sure the items you want don’t sell out.
