5 Fun and Unique Gifts for Men

best man gifts It’s that time again. It’s another birthday or anniversary or holiday, and there you are, searching for the perfect gift for the man who already has everything.

We bet you’re tired of going the generic cash route or boring gift card route. But, even if coming up with a creative idea feels overwhelming, don’t worry! We’ve got you covered.

Let’s get into the best man gifts for the dear husband, brother, boyfriend, or friend in your life!

Top Five Best Man Gifts

Food & Drink

Yes, it sounds simple, but we’ve never heard of someone complaining about an edible gift!

Some fun ideas to get you started (and hungry):

  • Homemade batch of his favorite dessert
  • A new spin on a classic favorite? (Lucky Charms Snack Mix, anyone?)
  • Collection of sauces
  • Cooking kit or subscription box to learn how to cook
  • Anything bacon-flavored. Cause, ya know, bacon
  • Favorite bottle of wine/case of beer
  • Gift card to a favorite restaurant or trendy restaurant for you both to try
  • Basket of all his favorite snacks

Clothes He’ll Actually Wear

News flash: male fashion is on the rise, and some of the best man gifts include catering to his specific tastes.

Is your guy into sports? Look into his favorite team jersey.

Into casual clothing that makes a mark? Look into funky smile more shirts or sweatshirts that send a great statement out to the world!

And, what about shoes? Get the lowdown on his shoe size and surprise him with some new digs!

Experience & Outings

Great gifts don’t just come in pretty packages. Consider planning an experience or outing for the man in your life. Some of our favorites include:

  • Booking a weekend getaway
  • Concert or sports tickets
  • Special dinner for two
  • Road trip to a local fun destination
  • Something ridiculously adventurous (skydiving, bungee jumping!)

Gadgets, Gadgets, & Gadgets

Trying to buy a gift for someone who’s always staring at a screen? Consider a gift in the technology department. Remember, even if he has the gadget, chances are, he’d benefit from adding some accessories.

For example, maybe he’s got the tablet, but he needs a keyboard.

Maybe he has the newest and trendiest phone, but he’s looking for an indestructible case.

Maybe he’s into digital photography, but he also needs a waterproof camera he can rely on.

Handmade Goods

For something truly one-of-a-kind, consider tapping into your creative side. Channel your inner artist and paint him a picture. Write him a beautiful love note. Get crafty with identifying how much he means to you. Restore a favorite piece of furniture. Write a sweet poem. Even coupon books can go a long way!

Remember, it doesn’t need to be professional or expensive to leave a lasting impression.

Final Thoughts

The top best man gifts are the ones that demonstrate how much you value the guy in your life.

You don’t need to complicate it. Most men aren’t looking for a crazy, over-the-top gift. They just want something that shows you understand their needs or desires. With these top five gifts as suggestions, you’re guaranteed to get him a gift he’s going to love!

Save Time Shopping the Walmart.com App & $25 Walmart Gift Card Giveaway

Walmart.com

Many of us are just so busy these days. Take the kids here, take the kids there, and sometimes the last thing you want to do is leave the house and go shopping. Who wants to spend time getting the kids dressed, drag them to the store, and you still might forgot something on your list because you got distracted and trying to keep your little one from running or climbing.

Walmart understands and has made it easier to shop Walmart.com with the Walmart smartphone app! The app is available on iPhone, Android, or iPad. I have to say shopping on my phone using the app was so easy. Walmart.com offers the great variety and savings on everyday low prices that you’ve come to love at your local Walmart, especially on your favorite P&G products. I was able to purchase all the everyday items I use already like Tide Pods, Charmin Ultra Strong Toilet Paper Mega Rolls, Mr. Clean, Bounty Select-A-Size Paper Towels, and Swiffer!

You can choose to have your purchase shipped directly to your house (shipping is free if you spend $50 or more) or shipped for free to the nearest Walmart location for a quick and easy pick-up with Site to Store. I ordered the items I needed as you can see in the picture below and I was able to pick up my order the SAME DAY at my local Walmart store. Walmart.com offers different payment options, including the option to Pay with Cash if you don’t want to use a credit card online. How great is that?!! Not everyone uses credit cards so this is really great. I also liked that I could pay with a gift card. By using the Walmart smartphone app, you can easily build a shopping list by scanning all the products you’re ready to purchase again.

I think this is such a great option plus if you are running out of say Tide Laundry Detergent then you scan the barcode with your phone and it will show up on the site for you to purchase more. How cool is that? As moms we need to use technology to help us and Walmart.com has certainly done that with this nifty little app for your smartphone or tablet.

WAIT! You can enter for a chance to win a $25 Walmart Gift Card of your own! I hope you use the new app and let me know how easy it was to use.

One Lucky reader will receive a $25 Walmart Gift Card!

Go Back to School with a vitaminwater® Deal at Sam’s Club

vitaminwater2

It’s that time of year again, where the kids are getting ready for back to school. That means school supplies, backpacks, school clothes, shoes, and lunch boxes but what about what to put inside those lunch boxes? As parents we want our kids to have healthier choices to put inside their lunch boxes. I struggle with this a lot myself. I want something healthy for my son but also something he will actually want to drink and eat. I am trying to save money so it’s a waste if he won’t eat or drink what I put in his lunch box for school.

vitaminwater1

I am so glad that vitaminwater® and vitaminwater zero® bonus packs (18ct) is on sale at Sam’s Club! You can also add vitaminwater® to their lunch boxes. The kids really love their great taste but you can feel good about serving it to them. Both products are naturally sweetened which is important to me as I am trying to cut out as much sugar as I can out of both of our diets. You both win as you can save money on buying the vitaminwater® bonus packs at Sam’s Club and they get something delicious to drink and it’s good for them as well.

SIMPLY RIGHT™ Infant Formula at Sam’s Club

This post brought to you by Sam’s Club. All opinions are 100% mine.

I loved bonding with my sons and holding them while I bottlefed them was a great time to unwind and just sit still for awhile. Fixing a bottle in the middle of the night doesn't seem so fun especially if you are still half asleep. I remember many times dozing off while feeding my son but I would still never trade those times for anything. They pass all too quickly.

You can get SIMPLY RIGHT™ Infant Formula at your local Sam's Club and it has three varieties. You can get Whether it is the Baby Care Gentle®, Baby Care Complete®, or Baby Care Sensitivity® SIMPLY RIGHT™. It is good to know that SIMPLY RIGHT™ Infant Formulas are Clinically proven to support growth and development, now with Lutein for brain and eye health! I know that would give me peace of mind to ensure my baby was getting all the best nutrients for proper growth and development.

What is really great about SIMPLY RIGHT™ Infant Formula is the scoop holder and leveler so no more guesses and it stays inside the container. The container has an easy open top which is great as who wants to fumble around trying to open a top in the middle of the night to make a bottle. The container is great for traveling and will keep the formula fresher longer.

SIMPLY RIGHT™ Infant Formula is very affordable which is another huge bonus. Use the savings calculator to see how much you can save per year compared to other formulas. I could save over $555 a year which is a great savings. What could you do with an extra $550 per year?
