Shopping for your children is easy because they’re always quick to tell you what they want, whether for their birthday or the holidays. But, your significant other may be more reluctant to let you know what’s on their wishlist. If they repeatedly say not to get them anything, but you’re set on getting them a present, you may feel stumped when trying to find something they’ll love but also use.
If your husband is the last person on your shopping list this holiday season and you’re looking for gift inspiration, keep reading for holiday gifts he’ll be thrilled to find under the tree.
We spend 1/3 of our lives in bed, which means the bed that we sleep in needs to feel like we are on cloud nine. The best part about a luxury mattress topper as a gift for your husband is you’ll get to take advantage of it too! You can get mattress toppers in different thicknesses and styles, but the addition can make all the difference in getting a good night’s sleep. This is a thoughtful gift if your husband struggles with falling asleep or staying asleep or has a bad back like my husband does.
On the opposite spectrum of sleep, if your husband frequently wakes up tired because of life’s responsibilities, a Nespresso machine is just the ticket. Coffee machines have come a long way, even in the last decade, but few can compare to the decadent drinks you can make with a quality machine like Nespresso. A thoughtful add-on to this gift is a beautiful mug and pods in flavors you know he would enjoy.
Fashion and jewelry aren’t just for the ladies; more men than ever are putting on accessories and jewelry every day before heading out the door. If you think your husband would like to dabble in new jewelry, a great intro piece is a chain necklace. Explore different styles from a thick chain or a more delicate one, sterling silver or gold. Whatever fits his style the best will be an amazing addition and the perfect everyday staple.
Who doesn’t love to get out of town and away from their responsibilities occasionally? Planning and booking a road trip for your husband as a way to get away is a thoughtful gift. Whether you design the trip for the two of you to go together or plan it for him to take solo or with golf buddies, the time away can be a game changer regarding his mental health. You’re also giving the gift of memory-making with a road trip, and that’s what marriage is all about.
Studies show that people who partake in hobbies enjoy less anxiety, stress, and other health benefits. Hobbies are expensive, though! Whether your husband is into hiking, gaming, or anything in between, supplies to fuel his passion are always a welcome present. If you feel up to it, include some coupons for uninterrupted time from the kiddos where he can focus solely on his hobbies.
These days it’s not just women that are running errands in their athleisure; men have read the memo and are enjoying the comfort of athleisure and workout wear. However, with the boom of the athleisure fashion scene still going, now the tides are turning toward a more elevated athleisure aesthetic. Keep him on trend and, of course, comfortable with a few outfits embracing this style. Add on a crisp and clean pair of new athletic sneakers, and he’ll be ready for anything as he heads into the new year.
Being married doesn’t come without difficulties, but throwing parenthood into the mix can make things downright stressful. Of course, you love your life, but that doesn’t mean your back and shoulders aren’t full of knots due to your responsibilities. Book a couples massage for you and your husband to unwind and reconnect. When surveyed, most men report they don’t take time to book treatments and procedures that reduce their stress level but still enjoy them.
Don’t let finding the perfect present for your husband this holiday season be a source of stress; you’ve got enough on your plate, Mama! By going with one of the gifts mentioned above, you’ll get him something he’ll love and appreciate almost as much as he loves you! Happy holidays!
