Gift-giving for guys can be a challenge since there are not really as many particular go-to options as there traditionally are for women, such as chocolates, jewelry, or flowers. But let’s not get too stereotypical, men can enjoy gifts like that too, there are just so many more great options out there, as our gift guide illustrates.

Choosing the Best Gifts For Guy Friends

Research commonly claims that the best gifts for guys are ones that are more practical than flashy or decorative. This is the best rule to follow when you’re buying a gift for a guy that you don’t know too well. But since you’re most likely here because you’re looking for a gift for your guy friend, we’ll safely assume that you have a better idea of what his interests are and what he likes. Of course, if he’s a flashy guy and loves the extravagant, then by all means get him those red velvet dress shoes rather than a toolset. When it comes to buying the best gifts for guy friends, their particular interests always trump practicality.

It’s also important to keep the nature of your relationship in mind when searching for an appropriate gift for a guy friend. Of course, since it’s (most likely) purely platonic, steer clear of gifts that fall more in the romantic category.

How We Identified the Best Gifts For Guy Friends

According to Lifehack.org, the best gifts can be evaluated based on whether they fulfill your guy friend’s needs, and this is where the more practical gifts for men come in. Since a majority of men are into sports, we included a section dedicated to this where you can find all sorts of gifts that might fulfill a sporty guy’s needs such as cycling sunglasses or training shorts.

Although we said not to get romantic when buying gifts for guy friends, we included a Valentine’s Day section because, after all, the whole point of this day is to express your love for your friends too, not only romantic partners. The gifts we included in this section are far from romantic and more practical or pampering.

Tips for Buying the Best Gifts For Guy Friends

  1. Keep it casual
    Although gift-giving is certainly an important way to express your affection for someone, when it comes to buying the best gift for your guy friend, you don’t have to get overly sentimental. Especially for men who are usually more straightforward and inclined to be less emotional.
  2. Less is more
    Women tend to appreciate goodie bags filled with various gift items more than men do. Rather buy your guy friend that one item he’d really like or needs and spend more than buying several smaller, less expensive gifts.
  3. Have fun with it
    Most men enjoy humor and we’re sure your friendship is filled with witty banter. Tie this into your gift and go for something more quirky. Gag gifts are great for this, and if you can somehow incorporate an inside joke between you too, even better!
