Sweatpants are the perfect clothing item for the enjoyment of sporting events – especially in the colder months of the year. They’re warm, stretchy (to accommodate the tons and tons of food you will consume in them), and nobody will question your fashion choice whether you are at home or tailgating. These ones, from legendary brand Champion and designer Todd Snyder, are some of the best.
As we noted in our guide for the best dress shoes you can buy, Allen Edmonds is top choice and a household name — and with good reason. Of their many options, these American-made Park Avenue Oxford shoes ($425) check all the boxes with full-grain calfskin leather, Goodyear welt, and timeless style that's suitable for any occasion. It's actually a favorite of numerous U.S. Presidents.
If he's constantly searching for his keys or wallet, he'll get a kick out of the Tile.

If your giftee is stuck in city slush, throughout the holiday season, bring the winter weather into their home with candles that exude a snowscape. Each of these three different scents is inspired by three of Washington’s national parks. Olympic smells of woodsy red cedar and oakmoss, Rainier of pine needles with a hint of citrus, and North Cascades of season-appropriate peppermint and rosemary. The thoughtful candles are hand-poured in Washington with 100% vegan soy wax and perfume-quality oils.

Recent college graduates are heading into a new and exciting period of life — as well as one that will introduce more responsibilities and needs than they may have the budget for at the moment. As a recent graduate myself, I know that the most thoughtful and practical gifts I received made a much appreciated and tangible difference in my post-grad life, and I still haven't forgotten the people who made that possible.
Whether he's tuning into an audiobook on the subway or lifting weights at the gym, there's nothing more annoying than a dangling cord getting caught and tangled on everything. Enter the Apple AirPods. Sure, the price may seem a little steep, but when you factor in sound quality, durability, functionality, and ease of use, these babies are worth every penny. Not only will the AirPods immediately connect to his Apple devices when removed from their charging case, but audio will automatically play when the buds are placed in his ears and pause when he takes them out.
Suits — especially the nice ones — are a large yet ultimately necessary expense for most men, even if it's only for special occasions rather than his everyday job. This is one gift he'll likely use for years to come, will inspire confidence and gratitude every time he puts it on, and is something he will likely need before he has the budget to afford it.

Whether young or older, a drone is sure to evoke his inner kid on Christmas morning.

As he told us in our gift guide for 21-year-olds, “I’ve been asking around, trying to source some household supplies that I could move into my new apartment like kitchen supplies. Something small, portable, but would add utility in my life.” That could include a set of kitchen knives, like this all-purpose, three-piece set from Global. It’s on the expensive side, but if cared for properly, these knives will be useful for years to come.
His company will likely give him business cards, but he's not likely to already have a business card holder he can feel good about pulling out of his pocket, and this is certainly nicer to have than spending a couple minutes trying to wedge your business cards out from grubby dollars and win-a-free-bagel punch cards in his wallet. A business card holder looks competent, polished, and thoughtful.
