Men’s Gift Guide

Updated: Dec 12, 2023

Shopping for the men in your life can be tough - I swear I'm always scratching my head for ideas when it comes to good gifts, whether it be for Christmas, a birthday or another special occasion. To try to alleviate some of the guesswork, I rounded up a few of my favorite gift ideas below, including ones we personally use and love. Check them out!

Gold Nugget Farm - This sustainable beef company is FIRST on my list for so many reasons. What screams "man gift" more than MEAT?! I had been on the hunt for quite a while, when I came across Gold Nugget Farm. This family owned ranch in Dublin, Texas raises all their own cattle and ensures they are the best quality you’ll find. I was taken aback by how they work hard to ensure chemicals are far from their cattle. My husband and I have become huge fans! We cook at home with their meat often, and we have loved every delicious bite.

Gold Nugget Farm stands as a shining example of a company dedicated to providing families with not just great-tasting meat, but also a promise of ethical and environmentally responsible choices. Their meat boxes make AMAZING gift ideas!

Who is behind Gold Nugget Farm? Shelby and Tye Thompson are the owners of Gold Nugget Farm. They are raising two daughters and produce grass fed beef through regenerative land practices. They are truly the next generation of farmers and ranchers. 

This farm goes beyond merely raising livestock; they are champions of sustainable agriculture. The farm employs regenerative farming techniques, ensuring that the land not only sustains but flourishes under their care. By prioritizing soil health, rotational grazing, and natural resource conservation, Gold Nugget Farm contributes to the long-term well-being of the environment. For all you ladies out there, consider that Gold Nugget Farm's philosophy is the humane treatment of their animals. The livestock at the farm roam freely on pastures, graze on nutrient-rich grass, and lead a life free from stress and confinement. This commitment to ethical farming practices not only ensures the well-being of the animals but also results in meat of superior taste and quality.

The best part?! They believe in providing families with meat that is free from unnecessary additives. The farm strictly prohibits the use of antibiotics or hormones in their livestock, ensuring that the meat delivered to your table is not only delicious but also free from potentially harmful substances. I know how important this is to you! We searched high and low for a company that truly met our expectations. They even refrain from using chemical fertilizers, any types of pesticides, and refrain from vaccinating their animals. Once you try them, you’ll be hooked!

Did I mention you have the opportunity to customize your meat cuts and packages. Whether it's a special occasion or a personalized gift, the farm accommodates your preferences, allowing you to create a truly unique and thoughtful present. This level of customization sets Gold Nugget Farm apart from the standard, one-size-fits-all options found in most supermarkets, providing a personalized touch that makes their meat an ideal gift. The farm offers thoughtfully curated gift boxes and bundles, featuring an assortment of their finest cuts. These beautifully packaged selections make for an elegant and tasteful gift, perfect for birthdays, holidays, or any special occasion. It's a distinctive way to show someone you care while introducing them to the exceptional quality of Gold Nugget Farm's meat.

Mountaineer Brand - This clean ingredient company makes products just for men, and my husband is a HUGE fan after switching over all his goods last year. His biggest complaint was that he couldn't find a deodorant that kept his shirts free of stains. Well this one does! Mountaineer makes everything for men, including deodorant, beard care, body wash and muscle rub, shaving needs, and even bald head care! Say what?! They have so many choices for the men in your life. They are DEFINITELY one to consider for switching your loved ones over to clean, toxin free products.

One of the things I love about their brand is the scent. You won't have to worry about nasty ingredients on their labels that discloses "fragrance", which often hides hundreds of chemicals. They are transparent with what they use, and their customer service is approachable with any questions you may have and easy to reach.

YETI cooler - My husband bought one of these a couple years back and ended up buying one for each of his employees, because they are so useful and versatile. We've used them for cookouts, birthday parties, beach trips, etc. The YETI Tundra 35 is portable enough for one person to haul while still having an impressive carrying capacity of up to 20 cans with a recommended 2:1 ice-to-contents ratio. Even when it's full, it has a handle on the side which makes portability easy even for me. We have taken this on long road trips, since drinks and food stay cold for days. Any ice you put into the cooler actually stays ice thanks to up to 3 inches of PermaFrost Insulation and an extra thick FatWall design which is certified Bear-Resistant. This YETI model is virtually indestructible so wherever you decide to take it, this portable cooler’s sturdy construction will stand up to the rigors of your family journeys. Check it out on Amazon (comes in a variety of colors). YETI even has soft coolers if you're looking for something to carry with a strap. The colors they offer are cute for women too (and the fact that it stays cold for days works for breastmilk needs).

The Big Green Egg - This is a gift that needs to be at the top of every man's wishlist for the holiday season. We bought a Green Egg last year, and it has been a staple for our cooking and grilling needs. The Big Green Egg is the ultimate grilling and smoking machine, making it an exceptional gift for any man in your life who appreciates the art of outdoor cooking. Its iconic, egg-shaped design not only adds a unique aesthetic to any backyard but also serves a functional purpose, providing excellent heat retention and distribution.

This versatile grill can seamlessly transition from low-and-slow smoking to high-temperature searing, giving men the ability to showcase their culinary prowess across a spectrum of dishes. Its durability and quality construction ensure longevity, making it a gift that keeps on giving, season after season. Whether your guy is a seasoned barbecue enthusiast or just starting to explore the world of outdoor cooking, the Big Green Egg is a surefire way to elevate his grilling game and create unforgettable gastronomic experiences.
