40+ Gifts That Men Actually Want – 2019 Edition

It’s that time of year – time to buy gifts for the people in your life. And I don’t know about you, but the hardest person to buy for always seems to be my husband (or my father or father-in-law). Last year I put together a Gifts That Men Really Want (2018 Edition) Gift Guide, and I’ve got a new one this year with even more gifts. Take a peek at these 40+ gifts, and I guarantee you’ll find something your man is going to love!

The BEST Coffee Ever

Let’s face it: if you’re going to buy coffee for your guy, you’ve got to make sure it’s the best coffee on the planet. Luckily, I’ve got a name for you: Boca Java. They’ve got the most amazing roasted-to-order coffee (here’s how much I love it!) and it makes an awesome gift! My two recommendations for a bomb gift for any guy:

Maple Bacon Morning coffee: it’s coffee but it smells (and tastes) like maple bacon. It’s so, so good, and it goes great with some bacon and eggs for Christmas morning breakfast! 

Atomic Boca Java: These coffees (Cinnabuzz or Peanut Butter Bomb) contain 50% more caffeine than regular coffee, so it’s a nice pick-me-up for the back to work grind after the holidays! 

There are so many other great flavors – Frosty’s Favorite Butterscotch is a house favorite – and if you use the code BISCUITS, you’ll save 20% off any purchase! 

Note: Boca Java provided me coffee and compensation for the purpose of review. Thoughts and opinions are 100% honest and my own. 


JORD Apple Watch Bands

JORD Watch/Apple Watch Band

JORD sells gorgeous wood watches and wood and leather Apple watch bands. I have one of the women’s watches, and the quality is amazing! It looks good with everything I wear, and the men’s watches are the same. Some of my top choices for men’s watches are:

The Barista Watch – it’s actually made with real coffee beans! 

The Frankie – this is a simple, minimalist style with a great price point! 

The Black Limba Apple Watch Band – the wood and metal are stunning side-by-side!

Harry Potter Battle of Hogwarts – This cooperative deck building game is so fun for anyone who enjoys Harry Potter! My husband doesn’t care for HP and this is still one of his favorite games.

Escape the Room Board Game – The box contains 3 one-hour escape room games that you can play with 3-5 people right in your house. Plus there’s a VR companion game now too!
