100 Insanely Cool Gifts For Guys Under $50

Cool gifts for guys

You may be having a hard time searching for cool gifts for guys. If your guy is anything like me, there is no help to be had from him. Fortunately, you can see what a guy wants by my perspective on cool stuff. I picked each and every piece of items below, some of which I personally own, and the rest I expect to see in my room, lol.

golf balls#1. Golf Balls – $14.59

This isn’t for every guy, but for that golfer in your life it would be great. I know I would like a nice set of Titleist balls as a gift. They wouldn’t last long for me and my wicked right shank, but this large pack of cheaper balls might get me through a round or two.

 

Indoor Putting Green#2. Indoor Putting Green – $32.00

Tired of your guy coming home furious at his putting skills on the course? This will bring his anger to home! Putting is by far the worst part of golf for me, and everyone else. Very few pros toss their drivers on the course, but on any given day you can spot a putter flying.

 

BBQ Tool Set#3. BBQ Tool Set – $39.99

I know very few gifts make me feel as manly as a day spent BBQing on the back porch. This is something that the man in your life needs. Now, this doesn’t mean that he won’t continue to burn everything, but he will look awesome doing it.

 

Spice Kit#4. Spice Kit – $24.98

Let’s say he already has a BBQ set, and he loves it, but the food he makes is always a little bland. Well, get him this gift. I have personally used it, and the spices are magnificent. Hopefully, it helps.

 

Magnetic Wristband#5. Magnetic Wristband – $8.38

Does he always end up losing the nails, screws, and other items for his project? The handyman is always sticking those nasty things in his mouth while he does something else, and I know I don’t accidentally want to choke on a nail. This item may help keep that from happening.

 

razor#6. This Cool Razor – $29.97

I don’t shave a lot. I tend to keep that 5 o’clock shadow look. When I do shave, I end up hating the razor that I use, and it never does what I want. I think the problem is that I don’t have one of these cool looking razors.

 

 

Working Hands Cream#7. Working Hands – $6.57

Are you turned off by the absolute sandpaper like a quality of your man’s hands. I get it. This product can help take some of that away and get them that nice smooth touch again.

 

 

Cards Against Humanity#8. Cards Against Humanity – $25.00

If your man has a terrible sense of humor like I do, this game will go a long way. Have some friends over and see who can make the most inappropriate jokes with these premade cards. Remember, drink responsibly while playing. It makes for a much better time.

 

The Game of Things Board Game#9. Game of Things – $24.01

On a similar note, the Game of Things is something that every house should have. On its surface, it is a beautiful, creative game where you come up with “Things you shouldn’t say on a first date.” In practice, it might get a little dirty. Know your audience.

 

Sensitive Collection Gift Set#10. Sensitive Collection Gift Set – $15.00

Some guys may act like they don’t like pampering themselves, but I think most of us do. This kit will help that happen. If nothing else, it will keep him from using that exceptional shampoo and conditioner that you love. Right ladies?

Papa Mug#11. Papa Mug – $13.99

He has an addition to coffee. It is essentially the only thing that gets him up and makes him go to that terrible job in the morning. Well, that and the love for you and your children. Show some appreciation, even if he doesn’t deserve it with this mug.

 

 

City Map Glass#12. City Map Glass -$14.00

I love maps. Maybe it is the fact that I study history, or that I have some weird connection to borders and guidelines. Either way, a lot of men love maps and who doesn’t enjoy whiskey… or soda. Whatever he drinks, this glass would be cool for the collection.

 

 

Himalayan Salt Tequila Glasses#13. Himalayan Salt Shot Glasses – $28.00

The next time a drinking party is planned, you need to have this. Why? Well, Why not? They look cooler than those gimmicky shot glasses that you have in the cabinet. Plus, it makes taking shots seem a little more sophisticated.

 

 

IPA Brewing Kit#14. Brewing Kit – $48.00

I like cooking and making weird things. While I am one of the few guys who don’t like beer, I want to make my own. What better way to get a feel for the process than one of these kits? If nothing else, it may deter him from trying to build a steel. (Author note: Don’t do that. They’re illegal)

 

Homemade Gin Kit#15. Homemade Gin Kit – $45.99

This is more up my alley. Maybe your man likes the harder stuff and wants to see what it is like to make his gin. Everything that you need is in here including the spices and what not. Just don’t drink it all in one sitting. That could be bad.

 

 

Math Formulas Tie#16. Math Tie – $49.00

I hate math, but I am nerdy enough that most of my best friends are math majors. Nothing gets their juices flowing more than discussing the ins and outs of theorems while I sit in the corner pretending to understand. If your guy is like that, this tie is for him.

 

Desktop Golf#17. Desktop Golf – $35.00

I would rather be golfing than sitting at a desk any day. If your man is a golfer but is always stuck behind that desk at his mind-numbing job, this may give him that feeling of being on the links. Make sure he isn’t playing with it while the boss is in, though.

 

Beard Pack#18. Beard Pack – $40.00

We gave you some ideas for the man that shaves, but if he has a beard I left you hanging. No longer my friend. Hipsters and mountain men alike know that a nice looking beard requires work. Get him a nice set of product to try to help out.

 

Wine Infused Cedar Grilling Plank#19. Wine Infused Cedar Grilling Plank – $12.00

Back to the grill. Cedar planks are a great tool to have when barbecuing fish, shrimp, and other foods. I think it is something that every man needs and it can help his grilling exploits turn out just a little better.

 

Coffee Cold Brew Gift Set#20. Cold Brew Coffee Set – $36.00

It is all the rage as of late. Cold brew coffee is much less acidic tasting, and I like it much better. This kit includes some of the starting things that you need to make your own. I know a hot cup of coffee is nice, but this is a nice change of pace.

 

Vietnamese Coffee Set#21. Vietnamese Coffee Set – $21.95

I stake my reputation on the Vietnamese coffee that I make. It seems like every little bit someone that I know wants me to make them some. Seriously, this coffee is that good. Here is a starter kit for your man. Not only is the process fun and different, but the result is incredible.

 

Credit Card Tool Kit#22. Credit Card Tool Kit – $14.97

These minimalist items have been gaining momentum, and I appreciate it. I want one of these, and hopefully, my fiancee is reading this and paying attention. It just seems cool, and I think it could come in handy all of the time.

 

Cuba Cologne Set#23. Cuba Cologne Set – $44.99

I don’t love scented items like this because I am allergic to many scented items like this. I know a lot of guys who like these things. Aftershave, cologne, and body spray are all included, and the reviews are all good.

 

Show You Care Package#24. A Show You Care Package – $29.99

Look, this says for college, but I know any guy is going to like everything in this package. I mean, who doesn’t love snacks. If you “accidentally” buy two no one would blame you. Heck, you could send one my way if you want.

 

Dear Asshole Tear-out Letter Book#25. Dear A$$hole Tear-out Letter Book – $9.97

We have all been there… Trying to park and another car is blocking two spots. It wouldn’t be that big of a deal, except, well it’s the only spot open in the lot. Give your guy a way to show his appreciation with this book.

Blacklight Flashlight#26. Blacklight Flashlight – $8.99

Does your pet continuously act like it did something wrong but you can’t figure out what it is? Yeah… Mine too. This black light will help you find those accidents and clean them up properly. Word of advice; NEVER use in a hotel room. Seriously. Never.

 

Heat Resistant Gloves#27. Heat Resistant Gloves – $13.99

I cook a lot and burn myself on things even more. Just last week I grabbed a cast iron skillet that I had just taken out of the oven with my bare hands. It was a bad day. Surely, I am not the only one. Protect his hands. Get him a pair of these.

 

Wine Tool Set#28. Wine Tool Set – $14.99

Drinking wine requires some tools. This kit gives you all of the needed tools in an excellent wine bottle-shaped container. It is something that not many people have, and I think your guy would like it. Assuming he likes wine.

 

 

Bath Bomb Set#29. Bath Bomb Set – $19.97

Not many men take baths often, and I think that is a shame. I love a bath. Throw on a podcast, lights off and just chill. It is a great way to melt away the stress of the day. This gift can help make the bath even better.

 

 

Dry Bag#30. Dry Bag – $20.95

If your guy fishes a lot, this is something that he needs. Seriously, I have lost so many things into the water fishing. Once we nearly flipped a boat and cell phones, wallets, sunglasses, etc. all took a swim, and very few were recovered. Save him the trouble. Even if he doesn’t fish, this is something that could be needed.

 

Hot Sauce Set#31. Hot Sauce Set – $27.53

Make him cry. Not in a good way. This set contains some pretty hot items that are sure to kick that chili up about five notches. He could even hold a contest with his friends to see who is the manliest. Either way, hot sauce is great.

 

Grow Your Own Peppers#32. Grow Your Own Peppers – $18.99

Speaking of peppers and hot things, this gift is pretty cool. Sia varieties of peppers can be grown with the kit. Think about it. You get it for him, and a few weeks later his is making something homemade with the peppers that he grew. Doesn’t that sound great?

 

Travel Organizer#33. Travel Organizer – $22.99

I just got back from a trip this weekend and desperately wish that I had an item like this. I am the worst packer in the world and just throw things into a backpack. Don’t let him be like me. This will come in handy.

 

Engraved Guitar Pick#34. Engraved Guitar Pick – $14.50

If your guy is a musician this is a neat gift. My fiancee got one for me a while back, and I dug it. It is a unique way to say “I Love You.” Plus, it is engraved with a pun. What could be better?

 

Beef Jerky Sample Kit#35. Beef Jerky Sample Kit – $49.99

Personal Manicure Pedicure Set#40. Personal Manicure/Pedicure Set – $16.99
