Guys are notoriously hard to shop for, so finding perfect gifts for the men in your life can be a challenge. What do you buy for the dad who says he needs socks for the fifth year in a row? (Hint: definitely not socks.) Or the brother with a wishlist of expensive gadgets and watches? (Hint: neither of those things.) Or the husband who would be happy with no gift at all? (Hint: not nothing… Also, can’t relate!) The answer is a pair of cozy Bombas slippers. Or an Ooni gas-powered pizza oven. Or a stylish Shinola desk clock. Or any of the very covetable presents on this list, which we compiled specifically to please even your pickiest, unhelpful-hint-giving (favorite) men. So without further ado, we present to you, the 40 best gifts for men in 2022.
