This handy gift guide will help you get your gift-giving organized for the holiday season, with a whole host of gifts for the guys at various price points and from a wide range of retailers from Target to Nordstrom.

How we chose the best gifts for him

  • Price: Everyone has a different budget when it comes to gift buying, and we've made sure to include options at various price points - but never cheap when it comes to quality.
  • Cool factor: The gifts you'll find on our list are all useful, ranging from classy to quirky. But you won't find anything on the cheesy side or that he'd never actually be seen using or wearing.
  • Popularity: We've been covering gift giving for years now, and we know what HELLO! US shoppers love. We're using your past shopping trends and habits to predict what he'll love this year.
  • Trust: We don't want you to buy anything because of our recommendation and be disappointed. So we rely on retailers and brands that we know and love.
