·28 min read

Some guys can be impossible to shop for. We all know the type of guy that replies, “I already have everything I need,” when you ask what to get him for his birthday or Christmas. (It’s like, we don’t care, dude, that’s not the point!) That’s why picking out the best Christmas gifts for him can feel like an impossible task.

The impossible to shop for man generally falls into two categories — there’s the easygoing guy who doesn’t need much to be happy.

Lucky for you, we’ve gathered together the best gifts for the impossible man that he will actually appreciate. Whether you’re hunting for the comfiest new pants of the year or the wildest looking gadget you’ve ever seen, we’ve got plenty of unique options for you. From Mancrates to Masterclasses, from hatchets to survival hacks, these are some pretty unusual picks. Hey, at least they aren’t something he’s already got, which is a plus.

Read on and discover the best gifts for the impossible man in your life

1. Judy Mover Max

BEST OVERALL

We hope he’ll never have to use it, but on the off-chance he does, the Judy Mover Max emergency kit will come in handy when he least expects it. The Judy is an emergency bag filled with everything one could possibly need in an, “Oh, crap!” kind of situation. It’s equipped with over 50 life-saving survival essentials that can be used for a family of four for up to 72 hours total. Have him keep it in the back of his closet for life’s “just in case” moments.

Think of it this way, if your impossible man never uses this gift, that’s actually a good thing!

BEST FOR SHARING

Okay, we have a confession to make: we’re newly obsessed with Kendall Jenner’s 818 Tequila Reposado. “I had the opportunity to head to an 818 tasting a few weeks back and truthfully, I didn’t know what to expect,” says our e-commerce editor Tyler Schoeber, “but, hell, this reposado is passionate, classy, sip-worthy and oddly relaxing. It hits a lot like a nice whiskey and mixes deliciously into a margarita.” With that said, this isn’t your “let’s do shots” kind of tequila, rather a late-night sipper your giftee will choose when they’re getting a little bored of the bourbon on their bar cart. Trust us, everyone’s gotta try 818.

The OURA Alta isn’t just any towel — this is a towel made for our modern-day and age. Each ultra-plush, hypoallergenic is hiding a secret inside. What is it? Well, it’s that it kills 99% of germs. The musty smell atop older used towels are actually germs, mold and bacteria piling themselves on top of the material, which is absolutely filthy.

Thankfully, OURA is here to change that by killing germs before they get a chance to grow. So, your giftee can finally kiss that filthy towel goodbye.

As he heads back into the office after working from home for multiple months at a time, surprise him with this sleek mug from Fellow that will get him excited to get back on that once dreaded commute. The mug itself is very modern-looking and is built to make your beverage the most ideal temp you could hope for.

There’s always a sort of stigma over whether or not women should gift men candles. But, like, it’s a candle. It shouldn’t be deemed a feminine or masculine gift to give or receive.

Homesick candles are perfect for gifting because they’re super specific — gift him the scent of his home state or a memorable trip you took together. We love this brand-new Montreal candle since we haven’t had the chance to leave the country in so long. Maybe he’ll love it, too!

50. WWF Adopt a Great White Shark

BEST FOR THE DO-GOODER

It can be hard to get the do-gooder in your life anything, especially if they’re not as interested in material goods. WWF’s symbolic adoptions are a great way to give them something meaningful, while still having something to actually give them. The $60 gift set includes an adoption certificate, photo and best of all, a cute plush of the animal. The pandas are popular, but spare a thought for ecologically important but not as cute animals, like the great white shark.

51. Braun Classic Analog Alarm Clock

BEST FOR THE LATE SLEEPER

Most people probably use their phones as their alarms, but it’s no secret that phones can be a distraction when it comes to bedtime, whether that’s from blue light or doomscrolling. That’s why an alarm clock can be a surprisingly good gift for one’s mental and physical health, even though everyone hates their alarm clocks. Of course, this clock won’t make getting out of bed any easier, but it looks good and is made by the design masters at Braun.
