10 Useful Gifts for Men They'll Use Daily

Blog article image

Now that we’ve traded out pumpkin spice for cinnamon and pine, the season of gift-giving and holiday cheer is officially upon us! While we gear up and get ready for the festivities to begin, picking out the perfect present is at the front of our minds - but it isn’t always easy. 

We all can pinpoint at least one guy in our lives who is notoriously difficult to shop for, in the sense that they’ll ‘be happy with anything’. With endless options, pinpointing where to start can become a headache.

We’re with you on that, and so we’ve crafted some ideas for when you’re making your list (and checking it twice!). Get them something they’ll actually use this holiday season!

1. Black Camo Insulated Drinkware

For the party-goer on the move, you can’t go wrong with some sleek, insulated drinkware that will let them take the party wherever they go. Check out the BrüMate Midnight Camo collection of tumblers, pints, and canteens with a matte design he’ll love.

As part of our MÜV collection, all drinkware is completely leak-proof, made for on-the-go use so you don’t have to slow down for any spills. Stock up on some of our current favs such as the Toddy XL, Hopsulator TRíO can-cooler, or a gift set complete with your favorite MÜV picks.

2. Soft and Durable Slippers 

We’re skipping the standard robe and pajamas and going straight for cozy footwear this season! 

We all could use a new pair of soft and durable slippers for use around the house or running Sunday’s errards. But let’s be honest - it isn’t always something we think of buying ourselves. Do the man you’re shopping for a favor and pick out their next favorite pair of cozy slippers they’ll be sure to wear down to the last thread!

3. A Nice Shave Set 

Whether he’s got a ‘Santa Claus’ masterpiece of a beard, or sporting just a bit of stubble, chances are that your man knows the struggles of facial hair upkeep all too well.

For all the beard-lovers keen on keeping their signature look crisp and clean, give them some new grooming accessories they’ll be able to use on a day to day basis. Or, for those who prefer a clean-shaven look, a nice shave set is the absolute way to go. 

Shaving kits allow for them to test out different products in search of discovering the ultimate shaving routine, without breaking the bank!

4. Whiskey Tumbler + Reusable Ice Spheres

A classy guy deserves a classy gift, and what’s more classy than a new set of whiskey glasses that you can take anywhere, anytime. BrüMate’s NOS’R insulating nosing tumblers are the ultimate unbreakable whiskey glass - did we mention they have 20x better temperature retention than glass? 

Pair with a set of reusable ice spheres and you’ve got the perfect gift he’ll be able to use daily, all year round!

5. Liquor Canteen

Whether his drink of preference is a whiskey neat or a drink with mixers, a good liquor canteen is a great gift idea for any go-getter, allowing you to enjoy all your favorite spirits stress-free of spills. 

With a bold vintage design, these little guys make great companions to tag along on the next great adventure, and make discreet drinking easier than ever, day or night. 

6. Gift Cards 

Popular, unpopular opinion: gift cards are not a total bust of a gift idea! So you know what they like, but maybe not exactly what size, color, or style they would prefer, especially if their taste is very particular. 

Gift cards let them get what they want, when they want, rather than having to make returns or exchanges after the New Year. 

While useful, the stigma around the lack of effort involved may ward off buyers from purchasing - if you’re looking for a way to put in a little extra thought, try pairing the gift with a handmade gift or turn it into a scavenger hunt with the present at the end!

7. Brewery-Approved Beer Growler

For a man with great taste, you can’t go wrong with a good ol’ growler of their favorite pale ale or IPA to stock them up this holiday season. But we’re stepping it up a bit this year and topping it off with a reusable, brewery-approved growler. 

BrüMate’s 64 oz Growl’r is the perfect travel container to take on the road or for overnight trips out in the wilderness. We’re substituting glass for class - or rather, a vacuum insulated growler that will keep all your favorite beverages (beer or not) cold and carbonated for up to 48 hours.

For a bit of added personalization, craft your own custom Growl’r gift set with your choice of pints and patterns to keep the beers raised and the good times rolling. Cheer in the New Year with a gift they’ll get countless uses out of! 

8. A Weighted Blanket 

Cozy up this winter with a calming weighted blanket. If you haven’t got one already, boy are you missing out! 

These blankets are famously known for their relaxing capabilities, helping to improve sleep cycles and minimize stress and anxiety. You’ll definitely want to invest in a good quality blanket that's soft and comfortable for the both of you - after all, this isn’t just a present for him, but a useful luxury item for the both of you!

9. High-Quality Boxers 

Underwear for Christmas may just be the epitome of useful gift ideas. But useful doesn’t have to be boring! Stock them up on a nice pair of high quality boxers or briefs, whichever their preference. 

Being comfortable and confident in our under layers is just as important as what we wear on top. Investing in underwear that provides premium comfort and elevated style is an absolute necessity. Plus, it’s a perfect blend of practical and personal - if they’ve got a favorite brand or style, treat them to a nice pair that they wouldn’t normally spend the money on themselves.

10. Pocket Multi-Tools

Every adventurer or handyman needs a good set of quality, pocket multi-tools to add to their toolbelt. These snazzy gadgets open up an array of problem solving capabilities and allow for flawless functionality wherever he goes. 

With a variety of tools such as screwdrivers, blades, pliers, tweezers, and more, you’ll be giving a whole tool kit worth of supplies in just one gift. Keep them equipped for their next big project or exploration with a small, yet dependable gift that you know will come in handy.
