What We’re Gifting the Men in Our Lives This Year

Is it just me, or are men impossible to buy for? For my sister, mom, and girl friends, dainty jewelry, cozy accessories, and trendy skincare are all safe bets. But for men? They really are from Mars (at least when it comes to gifting). After all, what do you buy for the man who already has enough shaving kits to last him for years, owns more ties than he would ever wear, and uses the same leather wallet (no matter how many new ones you get him)? Not to worry, Everygirls. This year, we’ve rounded up the best gifts to give the brothers, significant others, and Everydads out there. Shop our picks for all the men in your life that are as fun, unique, and irreplaceable as they are.
