There’s so many men I care and respect in my life, but I become particularly stumped for gifts when it comes to my beloved. Men can be tough to shop for, but I’ve found these sincere and sometimes fun gifts usually strike a chord.

Some of my favorite gifts for the thinking man are these luxe notebooks from Sloane Stationery in London. Their quality alone makes one want to put pen to paper.


I particularly love giving a hands-on gift to my man, a way to disconnect from technology and feel the joy of creating something. Brooklyn Brew Shop’s Beer Making Kit means the finished product is just as fun as the creative process.


Socks! It might seem silly but I’ve never met a man who doesn’t appreciate a pair of well-designed, well-fitted socks to power them throughout the day.

While the exact style and make of sock will depend on whether your man is trying to get outdoors more often or whether they’ll be on stage leading a major conference soon, this New York Magazine article has you covered from Brooks Brothers Cashmere to Hot Sox’s Museum Collection. Patagonia also has a nice selection of Merino wool socks.


For the man who needs a laugh, I gift Kevin Hart’s book I Can’t Make This Up. Let’s get real — who doesn’t love Kevin Hart?
