Whether it’s for a dad, a boyfriend, or a son, we know that shopping for gifts for men is usually a guessing game. What does he like? Where does he shop? Did he already buy this for himself? Will he even tell you or think of it when you ask? Fortunately, setting a budget helps you eliminate some of the many questions. However, it’s important to keep in mind that just because you have a price cap, the quality of your gift doesn’t have to suffer.
Say you’re shopping for his birthday or Christmas. We gathered the best gifts for guys under $25 to get you started. We turned to highly rated products, some Best Tested goods we’re tried ourselves, and favorites from the men in our lives to shape this list. Useful finds include a pair of memory foam slippers, an exfoliating scrub, and a personalized toiletry bag. But it also helps if you zero in on his hobbies and activities; then you could also turn to our gifts for hikers and fitness enthusiasts, as examples. The best part: Most gifts are eligible for Amazon Prime shipping, so you’ll save money and time. No matter what you pick, make his day without going over budget.
If you're on a budget and not sure where to start, wallets are a reliable gift for even the pickiest guy. This compact option from Herschel has space for the essentials and is tap-friendly.
“I was impressed by the wallet's textured finish and the attention to detail in its branding. Its RFID-shielded pockets are another feature that made me choose it over similarly priced competitors. This ultra-slim wallet has several convenient card slots and a top-access compartment that’s great for storing bills or stashing an object tracker. It comes bundled with a rubber band in case you need to expand its capacity. The add-on accessory successfully helped me keep a stack of business cards while attending an industry event,” explains our senior technology editor, Stefan Vazharov, in our list of best slim wallets.
