The Best Gifts For Husbands In 2019
Here are 20 gift ideas for the hard-to-buy-for man in your life.
On the surface, the task of finding a Christmas gift for husbands seems like it would be an easy one. You spend a lot of time with your significant other, after all. You know all about their interests, hobbies, and favorite things. So why does picking a Christmas gift for husbands feel so impossible ahead of the holidays? This remains one of the great, unanswered questions in the universe — right next to, "Where do all of the socks go?" (Seriously, though, why are there always so many unmatched socks in the house?)
Here's the thing, though: Nine times out of 10, if you just ask your husband what he wants for Christmas, he'll simply shrug and say, "I don't know." Which isn't exactly helpful for all of the already frazzled wives out there desperately trying to finish up their holiday shopping by settling on Christmas gifts for husbands. What do husbands want, anyway?
Obviously, there is no perfect, universal Christmas gift for husbands that will appeal to everyone. Husbands are people who have widely varying interests and preferences; this isn't anything new. However, there do seem to be certain categories of gifts that tend to go over well when it comes to Christmas gifts for husbands. Electronics, music, drinks (alcoholic or otherwise) gadgets, tools, comfy clothes, exercise-related gear — these are all solid areas to begin your search for Christmas gifts for husbands. You know, unlike ties, socks, underwear, or a throw blanket. Because let's face it: None of these Christmas gifts for husbands bring any sort of "wow" factor to the table.
In order to get the ideas flowing in your mind, let's take a look at 20 Christmas gifts for husbands that are pretty much guaranteed to be winners this holiday season. (Be sure to bookmark this page so you can come back to it later for more inspiration.) There's...
If your husband doesn't already have the latest Apple Watch, then the Apple Watch Series 5 would be an excellent Christmas gift. Features include: GPS, always-on retina display, swim-proof, ECG app, Electrical and optical heart sensors, built-in compass, elevation, Emergency SOS, and fall detection. The price is $414 on Amazon — or, if you want o spring for the Apple Watch Series 5 with cellular, it'll set you back another 100 bucks.
Does your husband love coffee? Does he like sipping it slowly throughout the day? Then I would recommend this stainless steel vacuum insulated mug. It comes in three different sizes, nine different colors — and it keeps beverages hot or cold for hours. You can even lock the lid to avoid accidentally opening it. (Which makes it handy if you have a commute.) The 16-ounce mug is roughly $30 on Amazon.
Why not give your husband the gift of super cozy sleep with a weighted blanket this Christmas? This 15-pound weighted blanket would work well on a queen-size bed — so you can enjoy the benefits, too. Although it is weighted, and offers deep pressure stimulation, the material is also breathable. (Just in case you're concerned about a hot sleeper.) The 15-pound option for a queen-size bed is about $65 on Amazon.
You husband probably already has the big screen TV. But does he have a sound bar to to really get the full experience? If not, then the Sonos Beam Smart TV Sound Bar would be a great Christmas present for husbands. It's 400 bucks on Amazon, comes with Alexa built in, and can be controlled with your voice, with a remote, with the Sonos app, and more. Bonus: You can enjoy this gift, too!
The Oral-B Pro 1000 Power Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush oscillates and pulsates to break up and remove up to 300 percent more plaque along the gum line than a manual toothbrush. (So this toothbrush will make both your husband and his dentist happy!) It makes a fantastic stocking stuffer — nestled in right next to his favorite Christmas candy, of course. Grab it for $40 on Amazon.
If your guy is a sports fanatic — and loves debating sports-related controversies — then the book Upon Further Review: The Greatest What-Ifs in Sports History would be a home run. Which is why I've included it my Christmas gift for husbands. This New York Times best-seller is bound to make an impression, as well as be a fun conversation starter. Grab the hardcover version on Amazon for $18.
If your Apple-product-loving husband doesn't already have a pair of AirPods, then these AirPods with a wireless charge case will surely be a hit. The AirPods are easy to set up with your Apple devices, charge quickly in the case, and are automatically on/connected. You can grab them for $134 on Amazon.
With all the Star Wars movies — plus The Mandalorian — as well as plenty of Marvel movies, Disney classics, and nostalgic Disney series, a subscription to Disney+ would be an excellent Christmas gift for well, anybody. Bonus: You'd get to snuggle up and enjoy its awesomeness right along with him.
By the time he opens his brand new cordless leaf blower, he probably won't be able to get much use out of it this season. But who cares? Because you can bet when the snow thaws, your yard will be cleared of any and all leaves hanging around after he painstakingly raked them in October. This Greenworks model is lightweight, cordless, and packs plenty of power. It's roughly $120 on Amazon.
Looking for a more interesting stocking stuffer for your husband this year? Allow me to introduce you to this exotic meats jerky cane from ManCrates.com. It's festive and it satisfies those cravings for delicious, salty snacks. For $30, you can enjoy venison, buffalo, elk, and wild boar jerky in a variety of different flavors. Because the same, old stocking filled with peppermints and chocolate gets old, and fast.
It's durable. It's compact. And it's an infinitely handy. Christmas gift for husbands. This Swiss Army pocket knife features 15 functions in one, and for just 32 bucks. Bonus: It's small enough to be a surprisingly awesome stocking stuffer.
Whether he wants to listen to his favorite new album, podcast, radio talk show, or sports game, this bluetooth shower speaker makes it so you don't have to miss anything. The speaker quickly connects to devices via bluetooth, and suctions onto glass, ceramic, or any other smooth surface — and the battery life is 10 hours. Grab it for $30 on Amazon.
The last episode of Game of Thrones has long since aired, but the passion that viewers have for the series is still very much alive. With this in mind, I have a feeling the husband in your life would love receiving this 17-ounce Game of Thrones beer cup for Christmas this year. It reads, "I drink & I know things," and it even comes with a "hand of the king" bottle opener.
You know that old saying, "Everything old is new again"? Well, it's the truth. Because these days, records and record players are selling like hotcakes. Except, the players themselves have gotten a bit of an update. This Audio-Techinca turntable is bluetooth compatible — and is about $120 on Amazon. You and your husband will be able to invoke a vintage vibe by playing 33 -1/3 and 45 RPM vinyl records, just with some extra capabilities.

You can snag the kit on Amazon for about $17.
This S-ZONE canvas weekend bag with leather trim is the perfect size for a couple-day trip. It's lightweight, and has the perfect "husband vibe," in my opinion. Grab it for $50 on Amazon.
