Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way, oh what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh!” Y’all Christmas is next month which means it’s time to start thinking about gift ideas for your significant other! It seems like right after Halloween, everyone is in a rush to take down their fall decor and put up their Christmas tree and decorations. So this makes me feel like Christmas is closer than what it is (I’m not complaining). I would definitely be “everyone” if my husband was all for it…but it’s safe to say we still have our super cute pumpkin decor out. We’ve been sticking to the “no Christmas decor until after Thanksgiving” rule. But we’ll see how many more years that lasts.

Have you read the book, The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman? If you haven’t, I highly recommend it. It’s a short, great read! One of the love languages Gary Chapman goes over is gift-giving. And when Vince (my husband) and I started dating, giving him gifts was one of my ways of showing him I cared about him.

Even to this day, I love thinking about cute ways to surprise him and let him know how much he means to me! You may be having a difficult time thinking about what you’re going to gift your significant other for the holidays. This post will include both big and stocking stuffer gift ideas.

Big Gift Ideas


Tools have been a huge hit the last few Christmases in our family. Whether it’s a whole toolset or a single tool, it is bound to come in handy. Don’t forget to save your receipt!

2.Tool Cabinet

gift ideas

After two years of gifting my husband tools, this man was talking about how he needed something to store his tools. So that gave me another idea for that following Christmas. And I had the hardest time trying to wrap the box it came in. I think I went through 2 rolls of wrapping paper.

3.Bigger TV

Who doesn’t love a bigger TV? Yeah, it’s a gift for your significant other… but it’s a gift that will benefit you as well! So it’s a win-win! Also, around the holidays, there’s always a HUGE sale on electronics.

4.Garmin Watch

Vince is in the Army which means an apple watch that needs to be charged often wasn’t going to be the best fit for him. And when he showed me how much a Garmin watch was, my heart dropped. Those things are NOT cheap. However, they do have some pretty amazing capabilities and specs.

It doesn’t even have to be a Garmin watch but ANY watch could be an idea!

5.Game System

Are they a gamer? A new game system or some games to go with their game system would make a great gift. A new game runs about $60 so that adds up pretty quick.

6.Recliner (Lazyboy)

A lazyboy recliner would be a perfect gift for me honestly. We have one for the nursery and I wish it was in the living room because I’d be on it all day long. So maybe it’s a good thing it’s in the nursery.


Who doesn’t love shoes? I love shoes. You love shoes. My husband loves shoes. Tennis shoes, crocs, flip-flops with a bottle opener underneath (Reef is the brand), boots, or work shoes.

8.Lawncare Equipment

A lawnmower, a blower, whatever you can get at Lowe’s that you know they’d use. I know my husband wants a riding lawn mower but we don’t own any land right now so I don’t see the point in getting one.

9.Vehicle Related Upgrade

One of the best times to get a new vehicle is at the end of the year. But instead of trading in their vehicle, how about upgrades? Like new wheels, a new custom grill, or a new tint.

10.Workout Equipment

New Year’s Resolution is right around the corner as well. Your significant other might already be well into the fit life or need a little boost. I talk about the 10 home gym essentials here.


You can’t ever go wrong with clothes. I like to get Vince a few tops from his favorite store.

12.Personalized Gifts

Y’all, I LOVE personalized gifts. And Etsy is where it’s at. I spent way too much money than I’d like to admit on Etsy because I am a HUGE fan of personalized gifts.

13.Electric Shavers

Electric shavers save a lot of time and skin. Definitely a great gift. It doesn’t have to break the bank either.

14.Electric Toothbrush

This is a must-have for me. I was gifted an electric toothbrush years ago and then Vince gifted me a new one a couple of years ago. I don’t floss as much as I should. But at every dental appointment, they always praised me for flossing regularly. And it’s definitely all thanks to my electric toothbrush. This is the one Vince and I have and I highly, highly recommend it!

15.Outdoor Gear

This idea all depends on your significant other. What’s their hobby? Do they enjoy fishing, camping, hunting, or hiking?


I’m not going to lie. I am definitely considering this exact massager as a gift for Vince. I’ve seen amazing reviews and that way he’ll stop asking me to rub him every day.

17.Cookware Set

Does your significant other enjoy cooking? I know they’d appreciate a new cookware set because I enjoy cooking and love the set my husband gifted me! Honestly, you can’t ever have too many pots and pans (but that’s just me).


We have a charcoal and a propane grill. I love the taste of charcoal grilled food. However, propane grills are where it’s at. It’s so easy to cook with.

18.Tile Set

If your significant other loses their wallet or keys a lot, then you might want to consider getting them a Tile set. I gifted Vince a set and it’s saved him from losing his wallet and keys too many times to count.


There’s always a huge sale on electronics. This includes tablets! Keep an eye out on the holiday sales.


Bluetooth headphones are a must-have item for myself. I use mine to listen to music, talk on the phone while I’m grocery shopping, and it’s just nice to have because I have my hands full 90% of the time.

Stocking Stuffer Ideas

gift ideas

The big holiday gift ideas may or may not have been insightful for you. But I’m hoping I really nail the stocking stuffer gift ideas!

1.Personalized Socks

gift ideas

I’ve gotten Vince personalized socks and they were a HIT! I even got one for myself with his face on it. I ordered them both on Etsy from two different sellers.


We all know that men do not like replacing old underwear. This is probably one of the best stocking stuffer gift ideas. For me, I can’t ever have too many underwear. I may have an obsession with hoarding underwear from aerie and PINK.

3.Coffee Mug

Here’s another one of those things you can’t have too many of (don’t judge me). Take it a step further and order them a personalized coffee mug from Etsy.

4.Grooming Kit

Are you tired of your significant other stealing your nail clippers and leaving their toenails in them? Buy them this. You’ll thank me later.

5.Personalized Keychain

There are so many cute personalized keychains you can order on Etsy!

6.Christmas Ornament

If you have kids, you could make homemade Christmas ornaments with a sweet message for your significant other. This makes for one of the most sentimental gift ideas!

7.Sports Gear

Does your significant other have a favorite team? Favorite sports? There’s an endless list of sports gear you can get such as hats, socks, shirts, pj’s, slippers, cups, mugs, keychains, lanyards, and more!

8.Essentials Holder

You probably read that like, “what the heck is an essentials holder?”. It’s where they can charge their phone and put their keys, wallet, and other essentials in one spot.

9.Love Coupon Book

I’ve actually never purchased one of these but highly considering it. However, I have heard some amazing stories about them!

10.Video Games

Alright. Video games aren’t cheap. BUT who said you couldn’t get video games that were on sale?

11.Hygiene/ Grooming Products

No shave November? Or more like no shave winter.

12.Movie Tickets

Watching movies together might be a thing for y’all. How about an old fashion movie ticket to an upcoming Christmas movie?

13.Phone Case

My husband literally has an obsession with phone cases. I know I could easily stuff a couple of phone cases in his stocking and nothing else. And he’d be so happy.

14.Car Phone Charger

The thing about stocking stuffers is that you don’t want to gift your significant other what would be considered “junk”. You want to gift them something they’d use. A car phone charger is a necessity!

15.Card Game

You can’t ever go wrong with any card games. However, I recommend this one because it’s so much fun.


This is another one of those things my husband goes through. Does your significant other have a black wallet? Get them a brown leather one. Do they love the brown wallet they have? Get them the same one but with their initials engraved on Etsy.


I’m talking about old fashion movie tickets. How about old fashion love letter? Yes, pour your heart out on paper. Don’t type it up and print it off. Write it down. Be detailed, be sweet, funny, loving, and sexy.


I don’t care what anyone says. Giftcards are one of the best inventions. They can buy whatever their heart pleases.

19.Personalized T-shirt

gift ideas

I can’t get enough of personalized gifts.

20.Personalized Mask

You already know a new mask was going to be on the list of gift ideas! Wearing a mask has become our new normal. Get them a mask you know they’ll want to wear!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

It’s important to remind ourselves that Christmas isn’t about gift-giving. It’s a day to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. And giving gifts is symbolic of the gifts the Three Wise Men brought to baby Jesus. It is also a time to cherish our loved ones and count our blessings.
