Buying the best gifts for the men in your life—whether it’s your dad, boyfriend, husband, brother, friend, or any other loved one—can be surprisingly challenging. Some may like techie or outdoorsy gifts that speak to his hobbies and interests, while others may prefer more useful gifts that they know they’ll be able to enjoy on a regular basis. And then there are the guys who feel nearly impossible to shop for, who just go out and buy themselves everything they need and tell you they don’t want anything. Whoever you’re shopping for—whether it’s a holiday gift, Father’s Day gift, birthday gift, graduation gift, or just to show that you’re thinking of him—we have plenty of gift ideas for men right here.

Below, you’ll find our top picks for the best gifts for the men in your life. You’ll find solid choices for men who like cooking, grilling, fitness, practicality, and more, from retailers such as Amazon, REI, Nordstrom, Uncommon Goods, Food52, and Nike. From gadgets like wireless earbuds, multitools, Bluetooth speakers, and stylish chargers, to self-care faves like massagers, weighted blankets, towels, sex toys, and even bidets, you’re sure to find a great gift that your favorite guys will absolutely adore. And sure, it’s early in the season, but we advise shopping before the holiday rush to reduce stress. That way you can focus on spending time with your loved ones instead.

Best Gifts for Dads

Show Dad how much you care with a thoughtful gift that speaks to his quirks. For the dad who geeks out over maps and history, there’s a very cool LED circuit board that lets him watch the progress of trains in New York’s MTA system in real time (the company makes other cities’ public transit system boards too) or a subscription that sends him replicas of historical documents. For the dad who wants to put his memories on display: a set of their favorite printed photos. If they’re the practical “I don’t need anything except your love” kind of dad, perhaps opt for a useful electric lighter that doubles as a flashlight or a fitness tracker. And for the dad who just needs a minute: a SELF Fave neck and shoulder massager or a pair of ultra-soft, durable Ugg slippers.

Best Gifts for Boyfriends and Husbands

Your boyfriend, husband, or partner will love whatever you get him, but the best gift ideas for him are personal (like whiskey glasses featuring the map of a city they love), practical (like a massage gun, briefcase, handheld massager that mimics a hot stone massage, or a bidet), or downright fun (like a cocktail smoker, craft beer making kit, or sexy new toy).

Here’s a handheld, pocket-sized percussive massaging device that’s extra portable for soothing on-the-go.

Best Gifts for Brothers

You love your brother, and you want to make sure he’s taking care of himself. That’s why a fresh set of high-quality Brooklinen towels, buy-it-for-life Yeti tumbler, high-cushioned Doublesoul socks, or a soft hoodie from Everlane can make the perfect gift for him. Or you can make him the highlight of his next party by giving him something playful like Fujifilm’s instant camera or a silly puffer jacket that doubles as a beverage holder for his drink of choice. A subscription like Beer Drop, which sends craft brews straight to his doorstep every month, is a nice gift for beer-loving bros. Or you could go the wholesome, nostalgic route with a miniature photo album to display all your photos from childhood.

Best Subscription Gifts for Men

From the array of goodies they contain to the wide range of tastes they appeal to, what’s not to love about regular subscription boxes? Highlights include a hot sauce gift set that arrives every quarter, wine and coffee subscriptions (like the SELF Fave Atlas Coffee Club) for the discerning sipper, and Bespoke Post’s curated gift box, which might feature skin care essentials one month and a cocktail kit for old-fashioneds the next. If he’s an outdoorsy guy, the Nomadik box delivers a handful of helpful tools and gear, and the Horti plant subscription brings the great outdoors indoors. Any gadget guy will appreciate Breo Box’s selection of new tech every month. And for the grillmaster, there’s a box that will fill his cabinets with curated rubs, spices, sauces, and more. Pro tip: Subscription gifts also make excellent last-minute presents, since they’re usually delivered as an emailed gift card.

Most Useful Gifts for Men

Believe it or not, the most useful gifts are sometimes the most unique gifts too. Case in point: the SELF Fave HyperChiller, which chills hot coffee to ice-cold within minutes (for the iced coffee lovers); or temperature-controlled Ember mug that we love. There’s also the high-tech Lomi composter which makes at-home composting a breeze, plus handy multitools like the Leatherman, which is simultaneously a bottle opener, wrench, screwdriver, and about a dozen other things that fit on a keychain (for the tinkerers and on-the-go beer aficinados). And let’s not forget the Qubii, which is both a phone charger and external hard drive that automatically backs up their iPhone or iPad’s photos, videos, and contacts when plugged in to charge. Speaking of phones, a phone lockbox is one way to help him stay on-task if he just can’t stop reading the news or scrolling through Twitter.
