Gifts for the Manly Man
Are you looking for gifts for a manly man? You've come to the right place! Check out this huge list of never-boring gifts for that special man in your life.
We've got unique gifts for whatever special occasion you're celebrating! These thoughtful gifts are perfect for a birthday gift, Christmas gift, Father's Day gift, anniversary gift or even a "just because" gift.
Back when my husband and I first got married, I used to get annoyed because anytime we took a trip, he always packed a big battery charger with jumper cables, his tools, road flares, a first aid kit, etc. At times we were already limited on trunk space and I felt annoyed that he felt the need to bring these things along.
And then one day I realized that the reason he brought these things is that he wanted to be prepared to take care of us in an emergency. It was like a lightbulb moment that made me love my husband more deeply than I ever had.
The thing is, manly men have a strong desire to protect and take care of the people they love. That's why I know any manly man would love to receive the Uncharted supply Co Seventy2 Pro 2-Person Survival System.
This is the BEST survival kit on the market, hands-down!
Seventy2 designed this kit so that it is good enough for professional, daily use. While the backpack looks similar to their original backpack, durability, fit and organization has been improved. The internal tools have also been beefed up.
Included in this survival system you'll find:
Food and water for 2 people
Large insert pockets with extra space for personal goods
Updated First Aid pocket includes our new First Aid Pro
Improved shoulder and hip straps
Additional external pocket
Improved external strap system with swappable attachment options
New base straps for low carry, centered loads
Available in color shades of olive, black, red and orange.
If he's a manly man, I have no doubt that he is familiar with the YETI brand. YETI the gold standard of coolers. If he likes to fish, hunt, camp, or road trip, he will love this YETI Tundra Haul Portable Wheeled Cooler!
The YETI Tundra Haul Hard Wheeled Cooler features rotomolded construction, making it armored to the core and virtually indestructible! The tires will never go flat because they are made using a solid, single-piece tire construction that is impact and puncture resistant.
This beast of a cooler can literally keep ice for days! It's everything he wants and needs in a cooler and it will last him a lifetime!
My husband LOVES his YETI cooler and we get compliments on it from other men any time we take it out!
Manly men love power tools! What's more manly than a man building custom wood furniture? For that, he's sure to need a good circular saw. The WORX 20V 6-1/2 in. Circular Saw with ExacTrack™ takes the guesswork out of straight-line cutting by incorporating a tracking guide that enables accurate rip cuts.
The basic functions of a circular saw are making crosscuts, cutting wood against the grain at 90° and straight-line cutting or ripping a board lengthwise with the grain. Making accurate rip cuts in dimensional lumber, such as a 4x8 sheet of plywood can be challenging. Most circular saws come with an edge guide, but more and more saw owners are shifting to the use of track saw guide accessories to ensure accurate rip cuts.
Track saw guide accessories typically run from $40 to $80. What makes WORX ExacTrack different is that it’s the only circular saw with a built-in track guide.
Weighing 6 lbs., the WORX 20V 6-1/2 in. Circular Saw with ExacTrack is compact and lightweight. The saw is powered by a 20V 2.0 Ah Power Share™ Max lithium battery and 3600 rpm (no-load) motor. The saw’s maximum depth of cut is 2 in. and bevel capacity is up to 50°. The saw is ideal for DIY projects and remodeling jobs.
The 6-1/2 in. circular saw features a rubber overmold comfort grip and a spindle lock for fast and convenient blade changes. As part of the WORX Power Share program, the 20V 2.0 Ah battery is compatible with more than two dozen WORX DIY and lawn and garden tools.
Another power tool he needs is this powerful, battery-powered Pruning Saw from Worx! I got this saw for my husband about a year ago and he loves it! I've gotta admit, I love it too! It is SO handy for pruning bushes and trees. We seriously use it all the time on our 5 acres.
This easy-to-use pruning saw features an offset bar and chain for improved line-of-sight. And, although it's easy for an adult to use, the design of it means I don't have to worry about any of my young children accidentally turning it on and hurting themselves with it.
This power tool is part of the Worx Power Share family which means that the same battery powers over 75+ 20V, 40V, and 80V lifestyle, garden, and power tools from Worx. We own quite a few Worx tools so it's great to be able to use the same battery packs interchangeably between tools.
My husband has said so many times that the Worx Pruning Saw is one of his favorite and most-used tools, so this year for Father's Day I got him the extension pole.
It's going to take one of his favorite tools and make it even better for him! Our property has a lot of older trees that we just can't reach, even with a ladder, but that won't be a problem anymore thanks to this extension pole!
If you're getting the pruning saw, grabe the extension pole too. You won't regret it!
One more great product to consider from Worx is this lightweight string trimmer. Since this trimmer is battery-powered, he won't have to deal with any more hard starts, exhaust fumes, trips to the gas station, or need for oil and sparkplugs.
The 3-in-1 trimmer/edger/mini-mower is a powerful grass trimmer, a precision edger, and a mini-mower – all in one!
The trimmer’s shaft is adjustable to match the user’s height and posture. Its twist-and-edge feature easily converts the trimmer into a wheeled, walk-behind edger for edging driveways, sidewalks, walkways, and patios.
This Worx trimmer includes Command Feed which automatically advances the trimmer line instantly. The user electronically controls when to feed more line by pressing a push-button activator.
The head of the straight shaft trimmer ratchets from 0 to 90°. This allows him to trim in hard-to-reach areas such as beneath decks, between shrubs, and other obstructed areas.
He'll be so happy to have this great tool for his lawn maintenance!
The BEST gear box you'll ever find for your manly man! YETI is well-known for their quality-made products and this box is certainly no different.
My husband LOVES his YETI LoadOut GoBox!
Built to be nearly indestructible, the ultra-portable gearbox can endure seasons in the sun, negative temps in the field, and the daily abuse of being lugged in and out of the truck, the boat, and the blind.
This cargo case is perfect for any man and is a gift that will last a lifetime! It comes in 3 sizes to fit his needs.
I really don't know what it is about men, but every manly man I've known has loved watches.
He will love the newest addition from Casio, the EDIFICE’s flagship EQB1100 Series featuring the black IP band EQB1100XDC-1A with a green IP tachymeter bezel that creates a sportier design.
Bluetooth Smartphone Link, a Tough Solar power system that enables charging by exposure to even small amounts of light, and seven-hand chronograph timekeeping, all come packed into a case that is a mere 8.9 mm thin. The octagon bezel contributes to a design that is sporty, yet elegant.
The highly scratch-resistant sapphire crystal has a non-reflective coating on its inner surface to enhance readability.
This mega-sized 2-gallon jug is great for group gatherings, whether it's tailgating or camping!
Featuring a rugged handle and leakproof design, you can take it anywhere! Plus, the double-wall foam insulation will keep drinks cold for hours (iced for 2 days). The high-flow spigot also removes easily for cleaning.
Get your manly man a coffee with a little bit of bourbon kick! This unique and limited-edition coffee has been impossibly crafted to capture the essence of rich vanilla bean and premium bourbon. It delivers a smooth, subtle taste and a pleasant aroma that leaves you wanting more. This one-of-a-kind Spirit-Infused Coffee is anything but vanilla.
My mainly man loves to get his hands dirty and spends a lot of time in the garage fixing our automobiles, lawnmowers, ect. whenever they need it.
Nothing, and I mean it, NOTHING works as well to clean dirty, greasy hands (and parts) as Tub O' Towels. These towels are amazing and should be a staple in every garage and home! (Yes, I use them inside to clean up all of the messes my kids make!)
My husband also loves his garage neat and organized. That's why I was so excited to see that Tub O' Towels now offers this cool 90'Count Hanging Wall Bracket too!
For a great, practical gift that he'll really get a lot of use out of, get him a hanging wall bracket and some Tub O' Towels to go with it!
My husband says that "Buffalo Trace makes the best bourbon I've ever had" so I was delighted to see that they also have a gift shop featuring a ton of cool gift ideas for manly men, like their Bourbon Solid Cologne!
The Bourbon Solid Cologne offers a woodsy, oak barrel scent inspired by the rackhouses at the Buffalo Trace Distillery. It's a great scent for a manly man!
