Is there a man over 40 in your life? These gifts will please any man over 40, whether he’s your dad, your husband, your brother or your boyfriend. These holiday gifts are perfect for the sports fan, the cook, the science lover, or the man who just likes a little fun now and then.
Today’s addition to the Midlife Rambler 2020 Gift Guides features gifts just right for the men over 40 in your life. This year, I’m featuring gifts to inspire your guy to pick up a new hobby or get deeper into a hobby he already loves (because we all need a little something new about now), gifts that make life easier and gifts that just bring a smile.
This gifts are for men over 40 but I’d love to get a lot of these gifts myself! So, don’t forget – you can always buy yourself a little something, too, right? I’ll never tell.
Mike's Hot Honey combines sweetness and heat for a flavor enhancer that's just right for barbequed meat, wings, or anything your guy wants to add sauce to. This gift set includes the original Mike's Hot Honey and Mike's Hot Honey Extra Hot for the guys who love it when the spiciness level needs to go to 11.
If your guy loves bacon, he'll be thrilled with this subscription box! Each month, he'll receive 2-3 different packs (14-16 oz. each) of artisan bacon or sausage. You can choose 3,6, or 12-month subscriptions to give. He gets a "Bacon is Meat Candy" t-shirt in his first box so everyone can see how much he loves bacon.
If your guy likes to keep fit and likes to snack as well, he'll love this giant gift basket full of 20 different healthy, high protein snacks such as organic vegan protein bars and chickpea nacho chips.
Help your guy get in touch with his inner Paul Hollywood, with this yummy bread-making mix that couldn't be easier. Simply combine the mix with a 12-ounce bottle of beer, pour into a loaf pan, and bake for 45-minutes. He'll be rewarded with hot, delicious bread that everyone will rave over. Comes in a variety of flavors from sweet to savory.
If your guy likes draft beer or likes to buy growlers at his local craft beer store, he'll love this pressurized container, which holds 128oz of beer (approximately the size of two growlers of craft beer) and keeps it fresh for up to 3 months using pressurized CO2 containers. Amazon reviewers praised the easy setup and ease of storage.
The perfect beer deserves the perfect glass and this two-glass set is just what you need to serve your fresh beer in. Simply pop these glasses into the fridge and the cooling gel inside the glasses will keep the glasses frosty cool.
It's a Keurig for cocktails! And it works just like the Keurig you use to make your coffee. Order cocktail drink pods at drinkworks.com, pop in the pod, and the Drinkworks Home Bar automatically creates the perfect cocktail by mixing spirits, water, and carbonation at the same time. It also serves your drink deliciously cold without ice.
Help your man turn cocktail hour into drinks and a show with this heavy-duty set of cocktail tools that come in a rustic crate for storage. This was my husband's birthday present and I can agree that it's totally worth five stars.
I got this for my husband last year for Christmas and he absolutely loves it! With the Ember Temperature Control Smart Mug, your guy will never drink from a lukewarm cup of coffee again. Using the Ember App on his smartphone, he can set his desired temperature for his drink and the mug will keep it at that exact temperature for one hour or as long as you need it when you keep it on the charging coaster. What a world we live in!
If your guy loves everything Apple, he needs this charger which can charge his iphone wirelessly, his Apple Watch and his AirPods - all at the same time. I have this charger and I love how quickly it works and how neatly it corrals all my devices into a small footprint on my nightstand. You can also add additional cords to charge an iPad or USB-powered device.
This valet tray is perfect for keeping everything your guy needs on a daily basis neat and organized. Compartments hold his wallet, keys, sunglasses and more. Two compartments have slots that neatly hold the charging cord for your phone or other device. This valet tray is great for by the bed or in the entryway.
The Parrot Mambo is the perfect drone for beginners as it's one of the most stable minidrones on the market. You can fly it using an app on your phone or add an additional controller for even greater ease of use.
These noise-canceling headphones are a great value with sound as good as much more expensive headphones and offer a 30-hour battery life with strong bass. I have these headphones and often use them when we travel.
Sure Airpod's are great and everything but won't your guy respect your mad budgeting skills when he opens up these airpod dups that are a perfect match for half the cost? I use these headphones every day when I work out.
The 5 speakers in this high-end device produce immersive sound and it even automatically senses the acoustic conditions of any room and automatically adjusts to provide the perfect sound for the environment. Plus, you get all the regular Alexa features we've all become so dependent on.
Now is the perfect time for your guy to take up astronomy and this is a great beginner telescope. This telescope has two eyepieces for low- and high-power views of the starry skies. This telescope also comes with a free download of Celestron’s Starry Night Astronomy Software so he can learn all about the night sky.
This large mirror is perfect for the guy who likes to shave in shower. The larger size means he doesn't have to squint into a tiny mirror and it's guaranteed to never fog. All you have to do is fill the mirror with hot water from the shower. If the mirror gets too full, it automatically rotates and empties out.
This scalp massager turns a shower into spa time by gentle massaging your scalp while you shampoo. It also does a great job of removing product buildup and helping dandruff shampoos work even better. Over 15,000 Amazon reviewers love this little massager brush and your guy will love it too. Makes a great stocking stuffer!
These exfoliating soaps scrub away dry, flaky skin with natural ingredients like passion flower fruit and green tea extract. These soaps are paraben and phthalate-free and smell wonderful with scents like sandalwood and musk. For each product purchased, Marlowe donates soap to people in need throughout the world with Clean the World.
Don't make him have to choose between frostbitten fingers and replying to your very important text. He can do both with these fleece-lined, leather gloves. I got these for my sons last year for Christmas and they said they worked great for texting and keeping warm!
Ok, yes, these are socks. But what socks! Your guy will receive two pairs of colorful and stylish socks every month that will be sure to turn everyone's heads. Plus two pairs are donated to charity for every two pairs you purchase.
True confession time. I think all men look sexy in a cashmere crew. This is just my excuse to get every man in one. But I bet you'll love the way your guy looks in this cashmere crew that comes in a variety of fun colors.
These are the ultimate pants for being cozy at home - and isn't that what we're all doing this winter? Your guys will love the soft fleece of these pants. The gusseted crotch and elastic waist with integrated belt make these the perfect pants to wear after a big holiday meal.
*** BLACK FRIDAY SALE: CUSTOM SUITS START AT ONLY $289.00 ***
Blow your guys mind and give him a custom-made suit tailored to his exact measurements this holiday season. That's right, I said custom suit. Custom, made-to-order, suits from Indochino start at just $349. You measure yourself following their instructions or you can go and be measured at one of their 52 showrooms in North America. Your customized suit arrives at your door 2-3 weeks later. I honestly don't know why you would ever buy off-the-rack again.
These unique gift will bring a smile to the face of anyone who loves baseball. Create a custom wooden baseball scoreboard featuring your guy's favorite team. Almost everything about this sign is customizable. Select the Baseball Park of your choice, the Background Color or the Sign, and the color of the text on the sign.
This fun game is a safer alternative than darts and fits perfectly in any den or man cave. Throw the hooks to see who can get the highest score or play a game of 21 and see who can get closest. Over 1800 Amazon reviews rave about how fun this game is for all ages.
If your guy likes being prepared for anything, he'll love this updated version of the classic Leatherman multi-tool. This multi-tool is 18 tools in one, including pliers, wirecutters, scissors, a ruler, and can and bottle openers.
Bring a little joy to your guy's desk at work with this fun 18-inch replica of the giant inflatable balloon men you see at auto dealerships. He's sure to laugh when he inserts the 9 volt battery and sees the waving arms come to life. Comes with a 32-page book explaining the origins of flailing arm man.
This is a great gift for someone you know really well. The squatty potty has legions of fans who rave about how this product changed their life. This version has a motion-activated nightlight so there's no need to turn on the bathroom overhead light when using the bathroom at night.
Hi! I’m Katy and I started Midlife Rambler when my youngest child was a senior in high school. I was staring at the coming empty nest and wondering what was next for me. Does that sound like you? Then you’ll love our community of fun, feisty women. We’re looking forward to finally focusing (just a little on ourselves) and talking about all the things we enjoy: fashion, beauty, travel, entertaining, and being the best possible you.
