13 Unique Gifts for Him by popular Washington D.C. life and style blogger, Alicia Tenise: image of a man and woman standing next to each other by a Christmas tree and holding presents.

Can I admit something to you all? I’m usually a last-minute shopper, but this year, I found gifts for everyone on my list on Black Friday. Trust me, I’ve never been so Type A during the holidays, but this year I felt pretty inspired!

If you’re still on the hunt for any ‘unique gifts for him‘, I’ve got a few ideas that he’ll love. Below are some of my top gift picks for him!


Tavola Cookbook | Merino Hoodie | Bose Headphones
Card Case | Theragun Massager | Waterproof Boots
Ticket to Ride Game | Whiskey Wedge & Glass Kit
Nike Sneakers | Leather Belt
Puffer Coat | DJI Osmo Pocket | Duffel Bag

Last year, when I created my unique gift ideas for him guide, I asked the men in my life what gifts they would love to get. And boy, oh boy, I got a few fantastic answers! If you’re looking for a holiday present for the man in your life, here are a few unique gift ideas for him straight from the source. I’ve updated this list for 2019 and kept some of the previous years’ suggestions that were still in stock, and added in a few new pieces that I’ve gifted Tom over the past year that were major hits.

I think I was most surprised that the men in my life seemed like simple fellas (seriously, I often see them in jeans and a t-shirt!), but they loved their designer fashion pieces. They unanimously said they would like to see a Burberry tie under the tree, and Patagonia was also a big hit with the men I know. I also know a ton of men who are very interested in craft beer, so this beer tasting kit was a major hit amongst the guys that I know. Lastly, a portable phone charger makes for an excellent stocking stuffer. 

Some other top gift picks for 2019 include:

  • The Theragun Massager: This has been on Tom’s list for several months now! With this tool, you can relieve muscle tension, soreness, and pain, and create an unforgettable home spa experience.
  • A pair of noise-canceling headphones. I splurged on these headphones earlier this year, and if you have someone who travels a lot, they’re worth every penny. I can’t get on a plane without them!
  • A camera for the adventurer. Tom picked up the DJI Osmo Pocket Camera right after our Miami trip, and we love it! It’s small enough to fit in a pocket or a purse but packs a serious punch. We’re really impressed with the video quality of this camera, and it’s the perfect gift for any creative-type.
  • A little fun. As much as I love giving a super practical gift, Tom also suggested to put in a couple of fun picks as well. This Ticket to Ride board game is highly rated, and this dice tray is a great, inexpensive stocking stuffer: it keeps dice on the table and eliminates noise.

Oh, and also, here’s me being a proud girlfriend: this cookbook was photographed by my super talented boyfriend. Not only is it an amazing book packed with delicious recipes, but the photos in it are sure to wow anyone in your life!
