A water bottle with a built-in purification system
If he’s a traveler or adventurer, he’ll appreciate this water purifier bottle that lets him access clean drinking water no matter where he is. It doesn’t just filter out sediments and chemicals like chlorine, it actually gets rid of 99.9% of viruses, disease-causing bacteria, and more with a purifying filter that includes positively-charged ions to cling into negatively-charged pathogens and activated carbon to catch chemicals.
Silicone bands that look like the real thing
- Enso Rings
Silicone rings are great alternatives to metal wedding bands for anyone with an active lifestyle, even if it’s just a weekly game of golf. The silicone won’t get scratched or bent out of shape, and it’s sweatproof and easily washable too.
Delicious cookies and truffle balls
- Milk Bar
If he lives every day like it’s his birthday, he’ll love digging into Milk Bar’s B’Day Cake Truffles and 4-inch B’Day Cake. The cake is a smaller version of the usual 6-inch cake offerings from Milk Bar, which means it’s perfectly sized for sharing.
Items are packed securely and can be shipped nationwide. Right now, there’s free shipping nationwide on orders over $50.
A Disney+ subscription
- Alyssa Powell/Business Insider
It gives him unlimited access to movies and shows from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, and 20th Century Fox, and costs just $6.99 a month or $69.99 a year after a free seven-day trial. Read everything there is to know about Disney+ over here.
And if he needs some binge-spiration, here are all the new movies available to stream.
A convenient way for him to discover new products
- Birchbox Instagram
If he doesn’t have the time and energy to hunt down a skin-care or hair-care product different from the one he’s been using for years, just hand him over to Birchbox. Every month, the service will send him five samples catered to his hair, skin, and personal style.
Breathable, supportive golf socks
Little details, like the mesh under-toe ventilation zone, will make him appreciate these performance socks specially designed to up his golf game. Would it be extreme to attribute his birdie to Bombas?
A vinyl record subscription
- VNYL Instagram
VNYL’s curators look at his music tastes, member profile, and Spotify playlists to send three records he’ll want to dive into immediately. The included handwritten note explaining the suggestions makes the experience feel more like he’s stepped into a record store.
A smart home light starter kit
- Best Buy
He can dim, brighten, turn on, and turn off the light on his side of the room without ever getting out of bed, plus ask the Google Home Mini for the weather and news, play music, and handle a variety of other tasks.
Silky soft lounge pants that fit like a second skin
- Tommy John
The brand’s beloved lounge pants are delightfully airy, stretchy, and soft.
Matching underwear in a fun print
- MeUndies Instagram
Choose your favorite underwear cuts (five options for men and four options for women), then go on to the fun part, choosing the print. MeUndies offers solid colors, but we love the adventurous, cartoon-splashed prints more. The actual underwear is very comfortable and soft.
A mini cast iron skillet
- Field Company Instagram
The smallest version of Field Company’s lightweight and smooth vintage-style cast iron is the perfect size for cooking small dinner sides.
Cookies that look like him
- MK Sweets Co.
To have his likeness recreated on these delicious vanilla-almond sugar cookies is a gift he’ll never forget. Make sure to take a side-by-side photo before he eats them all.
A protective spray that keeps his shoes shiny and new
If he loves shoes, he should have the right products to take care of his favorite footwear. This spray protects shoes from stains caused by water and oil, and there are multiple people on our team who swear by it for every new pair of shoes they get.
Wireless earbuds with a 14-hour battery life
I wear these earphones all the time – at the gym, during my commute, in the office – because they sound great (you can customize the EQ through the app), never slip out of my ears, and have a long battery life. He’ll want to do the same once he experiences their quality and convenience.
Leather sneakers made using less waste and energy
The versatile leather sneakers come in seven different colors and can be worn everywhere from a casual office to the park. Even better, their production is carbon neutral and they’re 94.2% free of virgin plastic.
Creatively sentimental cufflinks
- Love Letter
The tiny envelopes open up to reveal a small and thoughtful reminder. You can replace it and surprise him with your own sweet message, too.
Gear to cheer on his favorite sports team
- Fanchest Instagram
Fanchest boxes, available for NHL, NFL, and college teams, include premium, officially licensed merch like fleece throws, caps, and even neck pillows.
Vitamin-infused body wash
- Necessaire Instagram
New gender-neutral personal care brand Necessaire treats the body with clean, sustainable ingredients and vitamins. He’ll love using the Eucalyptus or Sandalwood body washes to nourish his skin without stripping it of moisture.
‘Sleep’ glasses to reduce eye fatigue
- Felix Gray Instagram
The blue light that comes off our screens affects sleep, so rather than deny him access entirely from his phone or laptop before bed, gift him these blue light-blocking glasses. His eyes won’t feel as tired or dry, and he might have an easier time drifting off to sleep.
A framed photo
You can never go wrong with a photo of the family framed by handcrafted wood or metal. The metallic foil gives it a special touch.
Dress clothes that fit him perfectly
- Spier and Mackay
He can get custom-fit suits for surprisingly affordable prices from Canadian startup Spier & Mackay. Insider Picks reporter Amir Ismael calls it the best choice “if you’re having a treat-yourself moment or you need a shirt for a special occasion” – Christmas is just the special occasion to fit the bill.
A 15-pound weighted blanket
- Quilty Facebook
This heavy weighted blanket will knock him out after a long day within a couple of minutes under its comforting seven-layer embrace. Unless you want to be under it too, though, it may be hard to hold him close. You win some, you lose some.
A new electric toothbrush
There’s something especially satisfying about seeing your toothbrushes standing side by side in the bathroom. With Quip’s sleek metallic styles and the knowledge that you’ll always have a fresh brush head on the way via its subscription, it’s even more so.
A curated cocktail kit
- Saloon Box
Inside he’ll find all the top-shelf spirits and ingredients he needs to bring two creative cocktail recipes to life. Rather than regret all the money spent on ingredients he’ll only use once, he can refocus his energy to enjoying his cold, boozy creation.
A cool phone case and phone grip accessory
It’s a multi-talented force the likes of which the phone accessory world has never seen before – a grip, stand, car mount, and phone case, all in one convenient and sturdy package.
An opportunity to relax and recharge
Send him off to be pampered (or join him for an experience like a couples massage) at a luxe spa in your city.
A mug to fuel his love for the outdoors
- United by Blue
With its functional carabiner handle, this double-walled mug can be clipped to his bag and brought along for all his adventures. Once he’s all settled down at the campground, he can reward himself with a hot cup of coffee.
A staycation is a good excuse to get away from the kids for the weekend and reset in a beautiful home in your own city. It’ll help him appreciate a familiar place in a new light and he’ll return home with renewed energy and vigor.
